Get Rid of a Ghost Spread

On This Day

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, is considered one of the most haunted places in the United States, dripping in the blood of Civil War soldiers. New Orleans, seeped in the lore of the old South, earns another top spot in the nation’s most ghostly, haunted, and unsettled locations.

On this day in 1975, the Lutz family moved into 112 Ocean Avenue, aka the Amityville Horror house. The rest is history. The Amityville Horror book and film terrorized a generation.

Summation of Spread

In the Rider-Waite version of the Four of Cups, a hand appears like a ghostly specter reaching out to an unsuspecting fellow. All he needs to do is look up and notice the ghostly offering. The only question is, is the apparition friendly or fiendish?

Is something bumping in the night? Tarot can be a tool of communication, a survey of the circumstances surrounding the haunting, and can be used for suggestions on how to clear a space. This spread, inspired by one of the worst hauntings ever, aims to do that.

Cast in the classic shape of protection, a cross:

1. What is the energy of the situation?

2. Who is haunting?

3. Why are they still here?

4. What history must I know?

5. How can I explain to the ghost they must move on?

6. How do I help them move toward the light?

7. How can I protect myself?

8. Do I need to bring in professionals?
