Make Up for Wrongdoing Spread
On This Day
Witch hunts in Europe and North America between 1480 and 1750 resulted in an estimated 40,000 to 60,000 executions. Sadly, witch hysteria is not an isolated incident, having been recorded in classical antiquity and even in contemporary Papua New Guinea.
The colony of Salem, Massachusetts, officially regretted the horror and injustice of the Salem witch hunt with a day of fasting on this day in 1697.
Summation of Spread
The Ace of Cups suggests acts of love, empathy, and compassion as a way of healing any situation, both toward yourself and the wounded party. The dove represents peace, the water indicates the subconscious mind, and the water lilies symbolize eternal life.
Though one day of fasting hardly makes up for the inhumane deaths of over a dozen people, making amends for wrongdoing is important. If you’ve ever found yourself in the wrong, this spread will help you make it right.
