Did you know you can use the Tarot to communicate with departed loved ones? This time of year, the veil is getting thinner and it is at its thinnest on Halloween / Samhain, 31 October - the ideal day for communicating with the dead and honouring your ancestors.
This particular spread is to be used for someone you were close to and who passed away quite recently (recently enough for it to still play on your mind!). It can be used with either Tarot or Oracle cards. If you do use oracle cards, make sure they are not just happy clappy Angel cards but have a few more variations and moods included.
You can also mix and match. I use an oracle card for the 9th card and Tarot for all the rest, for instance.
