Deity Identification Spread aka “Who are You?” Spread
- Domain- This is what they typically have domain over. Usually, this is part of their title: “Goddess of Beauty,” “God of War.”
- Lesser Domain- This is a lesser domain they control. It can play into their title, or it may just be a domain that is not part of their title.
- Association/Symbols- These are what are typically considered associations or symbols of that deity. For example, Zues is typically associated with lightning.
- Traits/Charactistics- This card is traits or characteristics the deity is typically thought of as having. For example, Hera is typically considered to be very jealous.
- Lesser Traits- This card depicts a lesser trait the deity may have. This may be one that is not typically described in mythology or considered as common knowledge.
- The Deity- This card represents the deity over all.
This spread can also be used to help identify spirits, however it would be harder, in my opinion, to confirm this. With well known deities, there are myths and storied that this spread could be compared against.
This spread can also be used to help provide direction for which deity may be a good start for them.
This spread needs some testing so let me know if you do and how it works for you!
