Horseshoe Tarot Positions
Card 1: Past. It represents events and influences that have a direct bearing on the question. These influences may either be in the distant or recent past.
Card 2: Present. This is where you are now, the current circumstances surrounding your situation. It could refer to what’s happening now or to your current feelings and thoughts about the question.
Card 3: Hidden influences. In every situation there are unseen factors that you may not be fully aware of. Unexpected occurrences or subconscious conflicts that may not yet know about. It’s important to note that some readers use this third position to represent the immediate future instead of hidden influences.
Card 4: Obstacles. What is standing in the way of resolving this issue? The obstacles could be of a mental or physical nature, either external or sometimes present in our own attitude.
Card 5: Environment. This card describes what other people’s (or the other person’s) attitudes are. It could be an opinion, a behavior, or the general environment you are facing right now.
Card 6: Best Course of Action. It indicates a possible suggestion or what should be done for a successful end to the question. Sometimes the best course of action can be nothing at all, other times it may be a complete change in attitude.
Card 7: Final Outcome. In the Horseshoe spread, this card shows what is likely to happen if you follow the advice given by the previous card. If the advice is ignored, then this card can be ignored as well.
