A Summer Storm


I was lying in bed the other night listening to the sounds of a thunderstorm rolling across the sky and couldn't help thinking of how my life has been a little stormy as of late.....and just like that the Summer Storm spread was born.

~layed out to look like a lightningbolt~

1. is a weathermap ~ the situation as it appears from overhead (an overview of the situation)

2. is the clouds ~ what brought it on

3. is the lightning ~ the most dangerous and volitile part of the situation

4. is the thunder ~ how the situation is expressed, ie... do you verbalize the situation or keep quiet, rant and rave or calmly and rationally discuss the matter

5. Is the rain ~ downpour or sprinkle, how serious the situation is/can become

6. the mud puddle ~ whats left over after the rain stops

7. the sunshine returns ~ how/what dries up the rain.... resolution, the end, the outcome

I've only tried it once so far, but if anyone decides to take a a shot at it, let me know how well it worked or any ideas fro improvement.

Thanks,
Mel

How appropriate!
We had a rough storm last night down here in SC. Things in our house were actually blown out from lightening.

I think I'm going to have to try this later today!

Thank you for posting it

Beautiful spread! I'd just love to see a Rainbow position in it!

I'd read it as a positive gain from situation happening/ending. The beauty of situation. Something like that.

oooooo... what a wonderful spread!!!!

Yes, a Rainbow would be a nice ending.... it could be an 8th card.... maybe Future to look forward to..... Potential Outcome of Storm.....

The 7th card, Sunshine, is what we need to utilize to change the storm..... and then, if we utilize it, we get the Rainbow......

Thanks for sharing this spread with us, MoonDreameR!
