Significators | Where to stick them!
|Don’t sweep me under the carpet!|
Back in April, I ran a little poll asking YOU whether you’d consider using a significator in a reading. As I expected the majority of you said that you never used it in a reading, but an encouraging 20% said that you might consider using one now.
I may run the poll again at a later date and see whether that percentage goes up. I promise that I won’t cry if it doesn’t 🙂
Anyyyyywaaaay – so far we’ve looked at lots of ways one might choose a significator – some complicated and others very simple.
But what to DO with the damned thing once you’ve got it?!
Traditionally with the Celtic Cross reading, it would be slipped beneath the first two cards of your spread, hitherto never to be referred to again! Well, what’s the point of THAT?!
How could we make better use of this card?
Why not try keeping the significator off to one side, somewhere where it can be kept in view throughout the reading, and then see how that card ‘relates’ to the other cards in the spread?
In a circular-shaped spread – eg a Wheel of The Year type lay out – you could sit the significator in the centre. Literally placing your querent at the heart of the reading – and see how the card reacts to the others in the spread?

The Tarot’s Court Cards are my specialist area. They talk to me.
