The 4 Card “Elemental” Spread

4 card Elemental Tarot spread

Use this spread to evaluate the four planes of the Querent.

Card 1—North, Earth. Possessions, finance, health.
Card 2—East, Fire. Desire, passion, personal.
Card 3—South, Air. Struggle, education, intellect.
Card 4—West, Water. Social, romance, relationships.

These positions relate to my elemental directions personally. You can (and should) relate each card to each of the elemental directions that you use in ritual. This means if you associate East with Air and South with Fire, make the change known before using this spread. You cannot change what card-position means what, in the middle of a reading—you’ll regret it.

This is also the same spread that I used in this personal experience of mine.
