Hey June

I am reading at a fair this weekend and I am looking for a good spread, maybe 4-5 cards, to use for shorter 15 min readings.

Any ideas?

Hi Fiona,

I know you asked June, but I hope you don't mind me giving you a few spreads that I've invented, as well as a few from the book Power Tarot:

My spreads

The Tree Spread

Card 1: The Root The root of the problem/that which is hidden or unknown.
Card 2: The Trunk Symptoms - How the root is affecting you.
Card 3: The Branches How your relaitonships and/or health are being affected.
Card 4: Leaves Healing focus and meditation

Amazing Grace Spread

Card 1: What was lost
Card 2: What was found
Card 3: How you (or the querent) are blind
Card 4: How you (or the querent) see

Synergy Relationship Spread

Card 1: Represents the other person and where they're at in life presently
Card 2: Represents you (or the querent) and where you are at right now
Card 3: The core of the issue/problem
Card 4: What you need to know about the situation
Card 5: Healing and resolution

From Power Tarot:

Window Spread:

1 Current physical state
2 Current mental state
3 Current emotional state
4 Current spiritual state

Strength Spread:

1 Your greatest strength
2 How you can enhance this strength
3 How you can apply it to a relationship, project, or event
4 What this strength brings to you

Direction Spread:

1 Your current life direction
2 The lesson your're learning
3 What you're moving toward
4 You're long term objective
5 What will help you attain your objective

These are very unique and thoughtful spreads, Janet.

Is there any particular way that the reader should place the cards, eg. a pattern?

Thanks for sharing these! <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Thanks Janet!

I have used the window spread for folks before but they dont seem to like it much. I thought about the Direction Spread too. I found a moon spread that looks good that I may use. And I LOVE your tree spread!

HI Fiona,

How did your readings go this weekend?

What spreads did you end up using??

Sorry, I intended to post some more spreads but then hurt my shoulder. I hope it went well for you. <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

It actually was really slow. The shop owner accidently sceduled for the same day as the first day of the Renaissance Faire and a Pagan family picnic so you can imagine where everyone was
But I did a few readings and ended up using my standard spread, which is one I created based on the Feng Shui Bagua map.

Oh!

Your personal spread sounds fascinating - do you plan to write an anrticle about it??? I am sure our readers would love it!

The Baguai is very sacred to Asian mysticism in general - even the Samurai used them.

Very cool! <img src="/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />

Yes, Fiona, that Ba Gua spread sounds very intriguing.

I lean towards Asian philosophy/spirituality and would find that article very interesting. As you probably know, the Ba Gua is also very much related to the I Ching (another oracle system). I'd love to learn about a spread that relates to the Ba Gua. If you post it to your site, could you let us know on these discussion boards in case we (I) miss it?
