The Alchemy Thoth Tarot Spread

The Alchemy Thoth Tarot Spread was created primarily for the purpose of problem solving. The three-card groups allow the Tarot dignities to be used. One advantage of this layout is its simplicity; it is based on the idea that Rajas (Sulphur, action) acts upon Tamas (Salt, inertia) to bring about Sattwas (Mercury, wisdom).

Alchemy Thoth Tarot Spread


Alchemical Salt (5 2 8): The inertia to be overcome; the problem or any difficulties around the question.

Alchemical Sulphur (6 3 9): Activity; the action that will most likely be taken by the Querent.

Alchemical Mercury (4 1 7): A synthesis of forces; the solution; this will come to pass.

If desired, a card may be chosen and placed in the centre of the triad before shuffling and laying the other cards, to represent the Querent.
