Tarot Spell for Farms and Gardens

The Llewellyn Tarot

For Fertility of Crops and General Success in Farming
This pyramidal layout symbolizes growth and upward movement. Note also the placement of the Sun and its significance to agriculture. The Empress is a card that denotes fertility in all things, including fertility of crops. The Seven of Pentacles suggests long-term projects, and can apply to agriculture literally as well as graphically. The Three of Cups represents harvest home and the celebration of bounty.

When using accessories for this spell, be sure to surround your layout with fresh flowers, as well as samples or seed packets of the varieties of fruits and vegetables that you plan to farm or garden on will also be a helpful prop. Other accessories can include green candles, green crystals and gemstones, and a green cloth to lay the cards upon.

To perform this spell, you may improvise a ritual of your own or just proceed by laying out the cards according to the diagram and doing the following meditation, visualization, and affirmation.

Meditation and Visualization
Lay out the cards when you come to the appropriate point in the spell.

First, lay down the Sun, visualizing the Sun shining on your own farm or garden, sending its nourishing rays. Visualize your young and tender crops pushing up through the Earth to greet the Sun.

As you lay down the Empress, visualize the fertility that she represents—rain, mild weather, fertile soil.

Lay down the Seven of Pentacles, and visualize yourself working hard in your garden, enjoying the feel of the Sun and the feel of the soil as you do so. Imagine the anticipation that you will feel as you watch your crops ripening to maturity.

As you lay down the Three of Cups, visualize what your farm or garden will look like in full bloom, cultivated and with everything lushly growing. Picture yourself reaping your harvest, and feasting and celebrating afterward. Think of the sense of satisfaction that you will feel, knowing that your crops will bring security and plenty.

After meditating on these images for a while, pick up and handle the seeds or plant samples, envisioning power flowing into them as you stroke them.

After you have finished meditating on the cards and visualizations, carefully, and with as much feeling as you can, recite the following affirmation while placing your hand just above the cards and making a circle over them in a clockwise motion.

Affirmation

“I call upon the powers
of the Sun, the Earth,
the rain, and the soil!
My crops grow high!
The land prospers,
And all theron grows strong,
And full, and rich!
This I do ask!
For my land and all upon it,
So be it!”

You may consider the spell closed at this point, or you may close the spell as suggested in the rite in chapter 1, or as desired.From Tarot Spells, by Janina Renée

The altar, of course, can be anything from an elaborately carved table to a dresser top or even just a cleared section of kitchen counter; any available space can be utilized as long as it is large enough to hold the necessary tools and spell items.
