Tornado Spread

365 Tarot Spreads: Revealing the Magic in Each Day - Sasha Graham 2014

Tornado Spread

On This Day

Tornados can occur anytime but usually happen between 3 and 9 PM. Tornadoes contain the fastest winds on earth. They sometimes hop along their path, destroying one house and leaving the next one untouched.

This day in 2011 marked the largest tornado outbreak ever recorded: 358 tornadoes in over 21 states were confirmed by the National Weather Service in a three-day period. The most, 205, occurred on this day.

Summation of Spread

Like tornadoes, the Tower card is violent and unpredictable, signaling destruction, upheaval, and an event or situation occurring out of the blue.

Feeling a little out of control? Twisters and cyclones form when warm air meets cold. Unpredictability, damage, and the massive scale of tornadoes make them fascinating and terrifying. This spread uses tornado energy to examine what happens emotionally when the unexpected occurs.

Cast Your Cards

Look to the clouds, feel the direction of the wind, and cast the cards calmly upon the table.
