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

Protection Spread

On This Day

Everyone reacts to subtle energies, whether we realize it or not. People, events, animals, and the natural world all affect how we feel.

The feast of Saint Genevieve, patron saint of Paris, is celebrated today. Genevieve reported frequent visions of heavenly saints and angels from a young age. Graced with clairvoyance and miracle working, it is said her prayers and fasting saved Paris from a harrowing attack from Attila the Hun in 451 CE. Legend also states when her relics (pieces of her body kept as objects of reverence) were carried through the streets during the Parisian plague in 1129, she miraculously intervened to stop the spread of the plague as the death toll plummeted.

Summation of Spread

The Queen of Wands maintains the strongest energetic field in the deck because she commands the element of fire, passion, and spirituality. If you plan on reading tarot for others, energetic protection and grounding is important. It is possible to unintentionally absorb the querent’s energies, both positive and negative.

Channel St. Genevieve’s good graces when you feel the need for extra strength and protection. The questions ponder from whom, how, and why you might need extra security and care.

Cast Your Cards

Witches often raise cones of energy (recall the symbolism of a witch’s hat) when needing kinetic protection. Imagine a cone of protective white light around you while casting your cards.

1. Am I open to the influence of others?

2. What energy surrounds me?

3. Is there energy I must be aware of?

4. Who aids me?

5. What protection can I count on?
