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

Evil Villain Spread

On This Day

A person experiencing bullying often asks, “Why is this person doing this to me? Why is this happening to me?” Most bullying stems from the bully’s own issues, not the characteristics of the victim. Usually the bully is the problem, not you.

The film 101 Dalmatians was released on this day in 1961, becoming one of the most popular films of the decade. The film’s evil antagonist is Cruella de Vil, who sets out to kidnap a litter of Dalmatian puppies to make a coat from their fur.

Summation of Spread

The court cards represent personality traits. Bully or nemesis behavior can be reflected in card reversals (an upside-down tarot card). Reversals allow you to interpret and examine any number of personality traits as blocked, inverted, or negative.

Is someone being mean to you? The Evil Villain Spread uses the idea of the ultimate antagonist, Cruella, to pose questions on how to deal when you encounter a person displaying cruel behavior.
