There is nothing scary about the GT except your own attitude. Keep in mind that some of us had never heard about linear spreads, daily draws or similar and learned the GT from the very beginning. I'd suggest you to join the GT monthly thread, keep exploring your GT as combos (try to link two or three cards together), don't try to see the big picture immediately and I'm sure things will work out. There are really tons of info on the forum, I just don't have the time to dig all the threads now but I promise to try in the next few days. You can also look back. You can also join the "GT on a particular area" thread which I started to practice learning a GT on love/relationships only. It's easier because you'll focus on 3-4 cards mainly and at the same time will learn combos and how they play in real life. I find this forgotten very often - not learning pages of meanings matters but how they play in reality! And this comes with reading and observing your readings.
