upside-down tetractys

I'm working out some spreads to go with the deck I'm creating. This is the first-- hopefully I'll wind up with four or five. It's based on the Pythagorean triangular numbers.

Looks like bowling pins

This one is an upside-down triangle.





Top row: four cards. I read them as:

1. east-- mental
2. south-- spirit
3. west-- emotions
4. north-- physical

next row: three cards. I see them as

5. past
6. present
7. future

Next row: two cards. They are:

8. strength
9. challenge

Last row: one card

10. soul

First I read across each row... (Of course, you may see the sets much differently than I do) Going through the cards this way satisfies my sword level mental ordering mind.

Then it gets a bit freeforn here and where my intuition kicks in. No holds barred...

There are 6 upside-down small triangles to consider.

1***2 2***3 3***4 5***6 6***7 8****9

**5** **6** **7** **8** **9** **10**

And 3 rightside-up triangles:

**2** **3** **6**

5***6 6***7 8***9

see them as you will (or intuit )

Then I look at the center 7 cards as a "cycle" around now.




And finally I consider a summation triangle...



Any feedback is greatly appriciated

fly well
