We believe that using and choosing the right spread is very important. Like most people, we have tried just randomly picking cards for answers but, after 15 years of reading, we have come to realise that the structure provided by spreads are a hugely important part of building up a clear and decent reading.
Each spread is unique because of the positions it contains and their meanings. Individual spreads will look at and achieve different things depending on which one has been chosen and who the reading is for. A key part of developing a good relationship with a Subject is to be able to understand which spread will most suit their current needs and provide them with the most help.
Each position within a spread will reflect varying aspects of a particular situation. The position in which a card appears is integral to relating its meaning to your Subject. For example is the situation depicted in the card in their past, present or future? Is it a thought, feeling or is it their reality?
We have chosen 4 key spreads for the site; we believe these are a good starting point for everyone. Depending on what your Subject’s needs are, we hope our summaries and comments can help you choose the right reading for them.
This spread is a good aid for self-help and healing. 7 cards are chosen, each representing a chakra, which will highlight blockages, or situations and people, that may be affecting your mind, body and soul. Due to the over-arching nature of this spread we advise people to only use the Major Arcana. More info
