The Seer's Fan with Madame Endora

Madame Endora beckoned me from my Oracle deck bookcase today, and when Madame Endora beckons, I always respond. It turns out she was in the mood to do The Seer’s Fan reading from the guidebook that comes with her deck (published by Monolith Graphics, featuring artwork by Christine Filipak).

This spread uses six cards, with five of the cards laid out in a fan above the card in Position 1 (hence the name, The Seer’s Fan).


The positions are defined as follows:

(1) Represents me or my present situation
(2) Concerns health and physical well-being.
(3) Represents love and friendship in my life.
(4) Represents an immediate concern.
This card is the strongest oracle of future events.
(5) Represents spiritual harmony.
(6) Signifies wealth and material prosperity.

Here we go!

(1) Represents me or my present situation

THE MOON: You will be guided through darkness.

The Moon is one of the cards in a group titled “The Elements” in this deck. These eight cards depict celestial bodies and forces of nature that “surround and influence us every day.” Like The Moon in the Tarot, Madame Endora’s Moon card is dual-natured, representing illumination and discovery but also secretiveness or a “dark side.” So it seems that my present situation has both an obvious, illuminated aspect to it, but a not-so-obvious or hidden aspect as well. There is something I am not aware of that perhaps I need to become aware of, or gain clarification on. I’m not seeing something as clearly as I could or should.

(2) Concerns health and physical well-being.

SEDUCTION: Passion and romance await.

Well, this card seems like it should be in Position 3, but it is not, so let’s see what we can make of it. Seduction is one of ten cards in a group titled “The Realm of Fable.” These cards depict “various beings from ancient lore.” They represent “outside forces that guide and influence, motivate and hinder…” So somehow the idea that “passion and romance await” is influencing my health and physical well-being. I’m going to have to wait and see if the meaning of this card in this position becomes clearer to me with time.


(3) Represents love and friendship in my life.

SERENDIPITY: Bright new prospects are on the horizon.

Also part of “The Realm of Fable,” Serendipity is a night faerie who represents “an unexpected yet favorable turn of events, a chance meeting or discovery…” Okay, now I’m beginning to wonder how the combination of Seduction and Serendipity might interweave or interact, affecting health, physical well-being, love, and friendship. I’m certainly not looking for any “new prospects” in love, so I think this must refer to friendship. At the same time, I’m still trying to understand the meaning of Seduction in Position 2!

(4) Represents an immediate concern. This card is the strongest oracle of future events.

THE GRYPHON: Honor and good luck.

The Gryphon is a member of a group of ten cards called “The Bestiary” in this deck. I do like “honor and good luck” as “the strongest oracle of future events,” but I am wondering what the “immediate concern” might be. The Gryphon can represent a risk that reaps rewards. There is also a sense of “lofty ideals and high expectations.” Could be interesting.

(5) Represents spiritual harmony.

THE STARS: A long journey brings rewards.

Another member of “The Elements” group, The Stars point to a voyage “that spans a great distance,” as well as a possible separation or reunion. My journey towards spiritual harmony is likely to bring rewards, which is a nice thought. I do think of spirituality as a journey or voyage, following (or creating!) a path and making one’s way along it.

(6) Signifies wealth and material prosperity.

THE SATYR: Revelry and indulgence.

Back we go to The Realm of Fable for The Satyr. As one might imagine, this character is “playful, mischievous and prone to overindulgence.” Music, dance, revelry, celebration… bring it on! Wealth and prosperity can make it possible to live the high life, if one so chooses, but there is always a danger of losing control and going in for the “decadent, lustful and lewd behavior” The Satyr is famous for. I truly don’t think I’m in any danger of that, but I have to wonder about that Seduction card again.

These cards do contain some encouraging news or messages, but it looks like I may need to be alert as time goes on for situations or behaviors that would not prove beneficial for me!
