Original Tarot Spread: Ostara, a card spread for Spring

Ostara Original Tarot Spread Ostara - celebrated at the Vernal, or Spring, Equinox - is a good time to do a tarot reading focusing on new ideas or new inspiration, or similarly, a reading on a new endeavor recently begun.

Card One: Representing the bulb or seed - what has been planted or sown, or what can be planted or sown. You may already have a specific pursuit in mind, or you may simply be open to starting something new in your life. This card would represent either what you have already just begun, or what you might consider beginning.
Cards Two and Three: Representing the soil, what nourishes early growth. These two cards represent important influences you may or may not be fully aware of. They may not even feel positive, necessarily.
Card Four: Representing the first growth, or first stages. Here there may be vulnerability, hope, or expectation. What is vulnerable as you first start, or what you may be excitedly anticipating.
Card Five: Representing a first leaf, card 5 shows what is strong or secure, boldness and aspiration. This card shows from where you may be able to gather strength, optimism, or motivation to continue moving forward.
Cards Six, Seven, and Eight: Representing rain, and what will nourish the new, established growth. These are actions you can take or influences you can look for, to help this new life continue growing.
Card Nine: Representing the sun, card 9 shows the highest or strongest influence on this pursuit. This is what is needed most.
Card Ten: Representing the flower, or potential outcome. This is what this new endeavor can grow into, ultimately. It does not reflect a set future outcome, but positive potential you can strive for.
