November 2001 Tarot Spread - Spread of Thanksgiving by Diane Wilkes

One of the definitions for "spread" is "to arrange (food or a meal) on a table."  How apropos for this holiday where most of us spread way too much turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and pie on the table.  It might be healthier for us to do a tarot spread instead of--or at least, in addition to--our regular holiday fare.  Happy holidays!                                                                                                                

 

Card 1            Card 2                Card 3                Card 4
