The “Troll Under the Bridge” Spread

This story-telling spread loosely follows the plot of the Norwegian fairy-tale, “Three Billy Goats Gruff.” As its centerpiece it has the protagonist, “Big Billy Goat,” and the villain, “Trevor the Troll,” duking it out on the bridge to decide the querent’s fate. I envisioned it as being suitable for introducing children to the tarot, at least those who take the bloody-mindedness of many fairy tales (as long as Disney hasn’t corrupted them) as a matter of course. This spread was published in the July 2017 issue of Reflections, the American Tarot Association’s monthly newsletter.
