Honor Your Ancestors Spread
    On This Day
Today is the culmination of the Bon Festival, a Japanese Buddhist festival honoring the spirits of ancestors. Familial sites are visited, family reunions occur, and ancestors are believed to visit family altars. Lanterns, candles, and luminaries are lit and sent down river, helping spirits find their way back to the netherworld.

    Summation of Spread
Honoring ancestors can be an immensely rewarding spiritual experience. Acknowledging the web of life, we connect to what is greater than the sum of our parts. This spread is inspired by the people who have walked before you.

    Cast your cards
Pull one card for each ancestor you would like to honor- the number is up to you. For this spread, three ancestors are called. These ancestor cards should be dealt face-up and the rest face down, to be flipped one at a time when you read them.

1. Ancestor card.
2. What is your message?
3. How can I honor you?

4. Ancestor card.
5. What is your message?
6. How can I honor you?

7. Ancestor card.
8. What is your message?
9. How can I honor you?

10. What is my family legacy?
11. How do I best honor it?

So, I'm going to post a layout every Tuesday and Thursday (ish?) and if you would like to try this spread, and are okay with showing me, feel free to add your results as a comment, and if you aren't, please let me know in a comment what you thought of your results. <3 Love always.
