The Bathtub Spread


I made up this spread for advice on a task or job ahead. It turned out to give an interesting reading. Would someone else please try it and give me advice on card positions?

1. The tub--the environment of the task/project
2 The hot water--what may cause worry
3. The cold water--what may stop progress
4. The soap--what you need to do
5. The rubber ducky--what will be fun
6. The drain--what you'll get rid of
7. The towel--how you'll feel after it's done

It would be fun to have a tub-shaped arrangement, like

1.......................6 ...........7
.....2..............5
...........3....4

Suggestions?

I like it too!I suppose the tub could be filled with any situation, not just work or task?

However...what if its a bubble bath?

Or what if you added some bath salts to the bath?

On a whim I used this spread to ask about an old idea I have for a children's book--and every position turned up a card that was so focused on that task--like 8 of pentacles for soap (what you need to do).

3 of the 7 cards were pentacles, plus 2 majors. Guess I need to get this idea into production.

Because a bath is *generally* a solitary activity, I think this spread would work best for tasks where you're mostly alone or in charge. But it could always be converted to a relationship question. Hot tubs come in all sizes . . .

I'd thought of adding bubbles, but had no inspiration for what they'd mean. Maybe "what will start out obvious and then fade away" or "what will add more enjoyment"--depends on if you're taking a lingering bath or an efficient one

I'm delighted people are enjoying this one, let me know how your readings turn out.
