This was the strangest spread to me, for some reason. My friend Jeanette used it in a reading for me yesterday.
It is essentially a Past-Present-Future-Outcome reading, but the flow of reading it counterclockwise, so to speak did had a very different, and NICE feel to it.
The cards are laid as :
Cards 1 and 2 - Past influences, how the situation came to be
Cards 3 and 4 - Present influnces, what the situation is in the current time
Cards 5 thru 8 - Future influences, what the situation will come to be
Card 9 - Outcome, or Advice
It was such a different spread, to me, I thought I'd share it. It happened to come from a cheesy paper spread cloth, btw, from an oracle deck called the Answer cards (a VERY cool deck I'd never seen either!)
The actual spread cloth has variations on this actual layout, which is Jeanette's "boiled down" version, and currently her favorite spread.
