Today's Tarot for Ridley Scott
|The Cross and Triangle spread is a powerful means of understanding complex situations, developed by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. This spread is rich in occult and mystical symbolism, and one of our favorites here at Facade. The Haindl Tarot weaves a tapestry of haunting beauty from the traditions of Native America, the Holy Grail, the I Ching, Kabbalah and the Norse Runes, and is the deck of choice for mystics and those seeking enlightenment.

|The first card, the significator, is placed in the center of the cross. This card represents the prime energy manifest in your life. Ten of Wands (Oppression): Oppression. Depression. Transformation from cruelty to liberation. Possible fail.
|The second card, placed above the significator, represents Air. It describes your spirit, process of thought, and the influence of reason. Five of Wands (Conflict): Strife and battle, without hatred and bitterness. Avoidance.
|The third card, placed to the right of the significator, represents Fire. It describes your motivations, creative energies, and the influence of passion. Five of Cups (Disappointment), when reversed: Coming out of disappointment. A realistic view of the past.
|The fourth card, placed below the significator, represents Water. It describes your emotions, meditations, and the influence of love. Six of Cups (Happiness): Happiness. Loving and being loved. Balance and peace.
|The fifth card, placed to the left of the significator represents Earth. It describes your physical presence, position in life, and the influence of the material world. Mother of Cups (Venus of Willendorf), when reversed: Someone out of touch with physical realities.
|At this point the cross is complete and the triangle is formed. The sixth card, placed on the bottom left of the triangle represents one of two opposing forces. Ace of Wands: Gift of fire. Energy. Optimism. Confidence. Desire. Beginnings.
|The seventh card, placed on the bottom right of the triangle represents the force that opposes the bottom left card. These forces may be external, but they are frequently one's own inner archetypes in conflict. Strength, when reversed: Feeling blocked from one's power. Weak. Overwhelmed. Meditation or some form of relaxation may help restore strength.
|The eighth card, the reconciler, is placed below the cross in the third vertex of the triangle. This is the force that will resolve the conflict between the bottom left and bottom right cards. By meditating on this force and bringing more of it into your life, you can bring the matter at hand to a swifter conclusion than would naturally occur. Four of Cups (Mixed Happiness), when reversed: Loss of balance. Suppressed emotions.
|The ninth and final card, placed in the center bottom of the triangle, represents the final outcome unless you change course. The Chariot, when reversed: Lack of will. Passivity or weakness. It may be best to let things run their course.
