Tarot Spread: Naughty or Nice? (The Santa Stocking Spread)

I created this spread on Christmas Eve, 2007. It was originally published on my previous blog (Tarot Dame), and later published in the 2009 Tarot Lovers' Calendar. Here is the original post:

Okay, since it's Christmas Eve, I thought I'd make up a fun little spread, as I didn't see any Santa-related ones out there.

It's meant to be shaped like a stocking. The "present" is sticking out on top, while the "lump of coal" sinks to the bottom of the stocking.

(I personally face my stockings the other way, but a quick Google search showed the majority facing right... so to appeal to the masses, I changed the layout for this post.)


1. Naughty: How have I been naughty?
2. Nice: How have I been nice?
3. Lump of Coal: What can I expect as payback for being naughty?
4. Present: What gift will I receive for being nice?

Cards 1 and 3 (Naughty/Lump of Coal) I pulled from the bottom of the deck.
Cards 2 and 4 (Nice/Present) I pulled from the top.

My reading with this layout was pretty funny and accurate.
