Ancestor Tarot Spread

Get guidance and wisdom from your ancestors with this Ancestor Tarot Spread.


In the post, How to Work with Your Ancestors, I wrote about how to honour and work with your ancestors and those who have passed before you.

As a continuation, this is a tarot spread that can be used to connect with your ancestors, gain wisdom and messages from them.

First arrange time that you won’t be interrupted during the reading.

Light a candle or an Ancestor Candle (a candle chosen only for ancestor work), light incense/sage or perform any rituals that will help you feel relaxed and comfortable to receive messages.

Affirm your intention aloud or firmly in your mind that you are seeking guidance from your ancestors.

Shuffle the cards in your usual manner, draw the cards and arrange the spread in any way that you like.

  5. Bonsoir,

    Je découvre votre site et il est formidable ! Milles merci pour vos articles à propos des ancêtres…
    Votre méthode de tirage est très intéressante avec quel jeu ce fait elle ? Un rider waite? Marseille ? Oracle?



    • Merci! Je pense que le jeu de tarot le mieux adapté est celui avec lequel vous êtes le plus à l’aise. Si vous êtes à l’aise avec un jeu de tarot comportant des images de personnes, cela peut vous aider à mieux communiquer avec vos ancêtres. Vous ne pouvez pas vous tromper avec n’importe quelle version du RWS. S’il vous plaît pardonnez-moi si mon français n’est pas très bon! 🙂
