Spreads

*General 3 Card Spread*

Card 1.this is the past.
Card 2.this is the present.
Card 3.this is the future.

This is a good reading for anyone who just wants something general about their life.

*General 9 Card Spread*

Cards 1,2, and 3 are the past. Cards 4,5, and 6 are the present, and Cards 7,8, and 9 are the future. This is just an expansion of the first spread.

*The Celtic Cross Spread*

The Significator This is the card chosen to represent the querent. It is almost always a face card, and should be chosen with the querent's personality and attributes in mind. (Usually the querent themselves will choose one, or you can pick one for them based on what "feels" like them.) An alternative to this card position is a card layed down when doing the spread, and the card would detail the situation itself.

1. The Crossing Card An integral part of the situation that the querent may not be seeing, or something that may be an obstacle (likely if the card is reversed). This is something the querent needs the be aware of to resolve the situation.

2. The Foundation What the question is based on; this is a little hard to define, but you will get a feeling for what this card signifies.

3. The Near Future Coming events that the querent will want to watch for; this isn't necessarily the outcome of the situation, the rest of the cards will determine if it is.

4. The Crown This card gives you a sense of what is permeating the question; this may be something that the querent aspires to, or what the querent hopes the situation will become.

5. Recent Events Recent events that will have a bearing on the current situation.

6. The Querent While the Significator already represents the querent, this will tell how the querent feels about the question and other details; it is a picture of the querent as relates to the situation.

7. The Querent's Surroundings This is the people around the querent who have an influence on the situation; he/she will want to note whether the cards say they are supportive or not, and how they are related to the question. Sometimes the card will point directly to a specific person that is influencing the outcome heavily.

8. Hopes and Fears What the querent hopes for for this question, or what they fear most will happen. Helps the querent to realise how they feel about this question.

9. The Final Outcome What will ultimately happen (if the querent does nothing to change the situation, or if they cannot do anything to change it).

*The Horseshoe Tarot Spread*

1. The Past. This card represents past events that are affecting the queston or situation the querent is asking about.

2. The Immediate Present. Pretty self-explanatory; this card will tell you more about the situtation.

3. The Immediate Future. Near events that will affect this situation.

4. Something occupying the querent's mind. The querent needs to be aware of how this fits in with this situation.

5. The attitudes of others. Attitudes and thoughts about this situation from people surrounding the querent.

6. An Obstacle. This is something the querent must overcome to resolve the situation.

7. The Final Outcome. This is what will happen with the situation.

*The Tree of Life Spread*

The Significator. This card represents the querent and should be chosen from amongst the Kings, Queens, Knights, or Pages.

1. Aims or Ideals. This card represents what the querent would like to achieve.

2. Influences. What is influencing the situtation.

3. General Nature. This is the general nature of the question; it defines it more completely.

4. The Key. This may be something that the querent osn't seeing; it is the key to the answer to the question or how to resolve the situation, or how to achieve what the querent is attempting to achieve.

5. Influences of the Present. Influences on the situation or question from present circumstances that the querent nees to take into account for this reading.

6. Influences of the Future. these will be things the querent will want to look out for.

7. Effect of the Significator. This is the effect that the significator (the querent) has on the situation.

8. Effect of the Environment. The effect that the people around the querent have on the situation, as well as other things surrounding the querent.

9. Hopes and Fears. These are things that the querent maybe fears will happen or hops will happen with the situation.

10. The Final Outcome. The ultimate answer to the querent's question.

*The Chakra Spread*
