Tantric Kundalini Spread
On This Day
In Sanskrit, kundal means “coiled.”
Sir John George Woodroffe, the man responsible for popularizing Tantric philosophy in the West, passed away on this day in 1936. His hallmark book The Serpent Power: The Secrets of Tantric and Shaktic Yoga is the source of many modern Western adaptations of the Kundalini yoga practice.
Summation of Spread
The Ace of Wands represents the power of Kundalini fire. A symbol of strength, vitality, and energy, this ace provides the transformation of our world through desire.
Let your inner serpent rise. Kundalini is described as a dormant force coiled at the base of the spine. Through practice, it rises through the chakras and into the head, producing a profound mystical experience. The Tantric Kundalini Spread is inspired by the notion of your energetic serpent rising through your chakras, lighting you up as it goes.
Cast Your Cards
Imagine the energy at the base of your spine. Feel it moving upwards. For a fun twist, perform this spread on your lover. Have them lie naked on their stomach, and cast the cards along their spine.
