Horse Lovers Spread
On This Day
Romans linked horses with Mars, god of fury and war. Celtic mythology held them as harbingers of good fortune, and the white horse was especially sacred. Folk wisdom states that if many horses are seen standing together, a storm is coming.
Today marks the famous, frantic horse race in Sienna, Italy, called Il Palio. This morning, competing horses are taken to the local churches to be blessed. It is a sign of good luck if the horse leaves droppings.
Summation of Spread
All four knights and the Death card depict horses. To detect the energy and direction of a situation, look carefully at any horse appearing in a spread. They can indicate the direction, speed, and energy of the situation at hand.
Humankind owes a massive debt of gratitude to the horse. From the moment they became domesticated, horses have been one of the largest contributors to human civilization. The Horse Lovers Spread uses the symbolism of the horse to inspire its questions.
