This month is dedicated to Ghosts here at Gothic Bite Magazine and so this is a tarot spread inspired by the theme of this month.
In our world and next spirits are actively reaching out to loved ones and those with the rare abilities to sense them.
Spirits are the souls of the dead trapped between the world of the living and the realm of the dead. There are others called spirit guides that assist humans in times of stress or when they are seeking out guidance.
They can take the form of deities, loved ones, and in some cases animals. Many use tarots to seek answers to their questions including a way to connect to these guides.
Purpose of a guide
A spirit guide or in some cases angels are protectors of those seeking out their aide. They answer the questions one seeks out and leads them to the difficult answers.
They are sometimes mistaking for spirits which can also communicate through the cards. However, spirits can use the cards to enter the readers’ mind to take possession of them. They guide the reader’s hand and can lead to severe answers and harm to the reader.
