Deceased Tarot Spread

There is a very thin line between the world of the living and the dead. Often, it is generally erased at night and a person can see ghosts in reality. But this is possible only if you have certain abilities and skills. But the Tarot spread for the deceased gives a chance to touch the invisible for those who do not have the gift of clairvoyance. Cards in this case become conductors. They convey the images broadcast by the deceased. It is important not to be afraid of necrotic energies and to properly interact with the "guest". After all, with the wrong approach, you can not only not find out the necessary information, but also make problems.

Key features of the deceased Tarot spread

The dead person Tarot spread is a good alternative to the Ouija board. The cards will help to call the soul, talk to it and find out everything the questioner needs. Moreover, you can call both a close one – a relative, a beloved, and a complete stranger to work with clients. In this matter, the emotional connection between people is important. The fortuneteller himself can become an intermediary between the world of the living and the world of the dead. However, you should always keep the focus on the original question that interests you. Simple curiosity is often severely punished by the afterlife.

If during life people were not on good friendly terms, then in this case, the Tarot spread for the deceased is able to help establish a connection. Arcana will help to learn something from the departed to another world. But here everything will be decided by the mood of the soul. To try to find a compromise, you can remove the grave, leave your favorite treat. The deceased must feel that the querent treats him with respect. Death is a fiction, just a line separating two realities. After the death of a person, nothing ends. Therefore, the dead hear everything and understand the true motives of behavior. Communication with the help of cards will help remove guilt from the fortuneteller, remove the burden of sadness from him.

Separately, it is worth noting the use of the deceased spread on Tarot cards for criminal investigation. Perhaps the killer has not been found, or the motives of the deceased are not clear. In this case, the deck will act as a forensic scientist looking for the truth. If the soul makes contact, then the querent will have a chance to find out the truth. However, sometimes the deceased is unable to immerse himself in memories. Elementary, he does not want relatives and friends to delve into the past and make problems for themselves. In this case, it is worth respecting the request of the soul, letting it go and living on, no matter how difficult it is. After all, tears and constant negative thoughts keep the deceased nearby, do not allow him to calm down or be reborn.

When is the best time to do the spread

The spread for the deceased is best done after 40 days have passed from the date of death. The soul must calm down and realize that it has passed into another world. If you do the session earlier, it will be difficult to unhook the spirit from yourself. The questioner himself may be at risk. Problems will begin to pour in one after another, strange diseases will appear, and a feeling of anxiety will not leave. All this testifies to the presence of necrotic energy, binding the deceased to a living person. Such work at such an early date can only be carried out by experienced masters who practice interaction with the world of the dead on an ongoing basis. Therefore, it is better not to take risks.

Also, the Tarot spread for the deceased should not be carried out during a period of strong grief. Negative emotions will not allow you to tune in the right way. Only complete calmness will help to hear what the deceased wants to convey. The questioner himself can see what he wants, and not the real state of affairs. It is better to wait out the hard time, load yourself to the maximum with work and everyday activities. Physical labor or sports are especially good in this regard. But it’s worth taking on a deck only in a calm state, without distortions in plus or minus. If the querent conducts a Tarot spread for a client, then it will be easier for him to focus on the issue, since there are no personal experiences.

Choosing the most suitable deck of cards

Such work requires certain tools. For the Tarot spread for the deceased, all dark decks are suitable, as they symbolize the other world. Do not dwell on scary images. All this should be perceived as a manifestation of necrotic energy, rather than danger from a loved one. In this matter, suitable: Santa Muerte Tarot, Haunted House, Night Sun. Especially these decks perform well in situations related to crime. Dark Arcana will help to understand, find the perpetrators, or find out the true cause of death. Experienced practitioners are able to use the Goetia Tarot in Darkness. This deck connects to the work of demons. They will show the whole truth without embellishment.

The Before Tarot is also great. It will focus on the events preceding the fateful hour. If it’s hard for the questioner to come to terms with the loss, he doesn’t want to delve into the details, then preference should be given to light decks. Here may come up: Celestial Tarot, Klimt, Dreams of Gaia. Such cards have positive energy and smooth out all sharp corners. With them, any Tarot spread for the deceased turns into a heartfelt conversation that can inspire a fortuneteller. You should choose strictly from your own feelings and preferences. Waite’s deck can be called universal. It will help in cases where the requested information concerns the fate of the living.

Preparation and rules of the spread

Before you carry out the Tarot spread on the deceased, you must definitely take care of your own protection. Necrotic energy is very strong. It can be destructive to a sick person or someone who is weak in spirit. And it’s not about the mood of the departed. Communication with the dead in itself is not a kind of negative. Dark energy comes into play. The spirit returns to the world, but with a minus sign. In order for him to be able to speak and show certain images, to transmit information, he needs to draw a resource somewhere. And the conductor itself becomes such a battery. That is why it is impossible to conduct a seance during a protracted illness.

As protection during the Tarot spread for the deceased, you can use icons, church candles, or consecrated water. The querent will need the attributes of the egregor to which he belongs. A universal way is a circle of salt, in which you have to be during the entire session. Before starting work with the spread for the deceased, you need to mentally turn to the soul and politely call her for contact. After all the questions are sorted out, you should definitely let go of the spirit. To do this, you must also mentally turn to him and ask him to leave the living.

Setting goals and formulating questions

Before you conduct any Tarot spread for the deceased, you need to designate the task in advance. Everything will be decided by maximum accuracy. If the querent wants to know exactly how a person died, what was the true cause of death, then such a spread can be attributed to a criminal one. In this case, you need to rely on the mood of the soul, its desire to make contact. It is possible that it is not known for certain whether the person died. Here, just the same, it will not be superfluous to carry out a spread for the deceased. In any case, the soul communicates, transmitting all the information. If it turns out that the person is alive, then all thoughts and their mood will be transmitted to the questioner.

A different approach is needed for the Tarot spread for the deceased, if the querent is more interested in today. Advice from the heart can be actionable and applicable. After all, everything looks much better from the other world. This approach is perfect for communicating with loved ones, but dead people, close relatives with whom the fortuneteller was on good relationships. If during their lifetime they took care of him, then even after their death they will show only positive aspects, give advice regarding their personal life or career. The deceased can know the future. He sees it in every detail, because in the next world time does not exist.
