Unhappy In need of a spread.


I'm looking for a spread which is heavily geared to "what you
can expect from situation x " (maybe 3 or 4 outcomes . or
particulars of that situation: maybe along the lines of physical , intellectual , spiritual , emotional ) and then advise as to how one
can proceed / respond to such .

I don't know if such a spread exists !! And I'm getting into a real
mess trying to devise one for myself !!

I will do this spread for my mother , who will be trying to
help her sister (so it is the* sisters*situation , not my mother's.)

Sorry if this sounds muddled! I've re-opened a thread (your
readings) which gives background to this if you need such.

check this out:

forking path spread

-----6------9
-----5------8
-----4------7
--------10
---------3
---------2
---------1

1. I thought... Rational attitude on the past.
2. I felt... Emotional belief on the past.
3. The present. The current situation.
4. Choice A: rational approach. Logical and objective reasons.
5. Choice A: unconscious attitude. Emotional and subjective reasons.
6. Choice A: consequences. Price and rewards.
7. Choice B: rational approach. Logical and objective reasons.
8. Choice B: unconscious attitude. Emotional and subjective reasons.
9. Choice B: consequences. Price and rewards.
10. The signpost. Influence on the choice from the outside world.

i believe you can add branches to the fork if you have more than two options

if you have only one option and would liek to know details about alternatives i suggest to use this:

I tried the forking path spread and this is what I got:


After not finding results I liked or understood with other types of spreads I decided to give this one a try. I am trying to decide if I should stay and try to work things out with my BF or leave him. These are my results and interpretation. I would appreciate feedback to see if I'm on track here.

1. I thought... Rational attitude on the past.
Hanged man

2. I felt... Emotional belief on the past.
10 of cups

3. The present. The current situation.
4 of cups

...If I stay...
4. Choice A: rational approach. Logical and objective reasons.
5 of cups

5. Choice A: unconscious attitude. Emotional and subjective reasons.
King of pentacles reversed

6. Choice A: consequences. Price and rewards.
9 of pentacles

...Or if I go...
7. Choice B: rational approach. Logical and objective reasons.
The chariot

8. Choice B: unconscious attitude. Emotional and subjective reasons.
The fool reversed

9. Choice B: consequences. Price and rewards.
The lovers reversed

10. The signpost. Influence on the choice from the outside world.
5 of swords.

So I think what the first 3 cards are telling me is that I am considering the task at hand. What compromises or sacrifices am I willing to make, what are the tradeoffs? I was happy in this relationship and things were going great, but he did something to me that really hurt me. These negative feelings may be holding me back from my goals. I feel unfulfilled

The next 3, Choice A, Do I stay?, tell me I'm not getting what I want and I'm too attached to old ideals that aren't working anymore. I need to take a time out and reasess the situation. I need to rely on my own judgement and not be influenced by those around me. There is a lot of fear and doubt surrounding my decisions. But if I figure out what I want and how to get there and improve my negative attitude, I will be able to make this work and I'll feel better

The next 3, Choice B, Do I go?, tell me I need to have clarity in making this decison. I need figure out my goals on my own. But I need to not make careless decisons based on moods or emotion alone, and consider the magnitude of the situation. We will probably not even remain friends or stay in touch because there will be too much bad blood between us and we will not communicate well.

So I guess this means I should stick around and try to work things out?

Now #10 I'm not sure I get it's purpose. The card itself symbolizes to accept defeat and learn from it, to take a time out.

What do you think?
