Flirting with Danger Spread

On This Day

The remains of Pompeii are so well preserved that you can see Greek-inspired buildings, water fountains, brothels, bathhouses, residences, and an amphitheater standing along cobblestoned streets.

Mount Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for the 79 CE eruption burying the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, erupted again on this day in 1872. It blocked the escape route of twenty spectators, who then perished in the lava.

Summation of Spread

Wands echo the energy, force, and potential destruction of a volcano. It is important to channel passions and energy. Will you bottle your passion up, let it snuff out, or use it wisely to guide and light your way?

Is your middle name Danger? Mount Vesuvius is the most deadly volcano in the world due to its heightened activity and the high density of population living nearby in Naples. This spread is based on the fact that we all take risks, real and imagined. The questions look at what you are risking at the moment.
