Edited on 11.16.03 to add new spreads
So - I love the number 3. I see it everywhere in everything. It's my God/Divine/Magic type number. I like to do things in three's and schedule events on "3" days where the day of the month is a multiple of 3. (I promise I don't have OCD)
(If there is already a thread like this, just let me know - I searched but didn't find one with the same content. )
I'd like to create a comprehensive list of all the three card spreads we can think of - I know there's a lot. I'd like to continually edit this post and put all of them at the beginning of this thread for easy viewing.
This is the list myself and my local tarot group (there's three of us) have put together so far: (I haven't come up with interps for all of the ones that aren't as obvious as PPF, so please feel free fill in the blanks) Also, if any of these spreads were created and posted by people on this forum - I thank you in advance
