Question I need a quick spread.

I'm a college student with a hectic schedule, andI'm new to the tarot. I was wondering if anyone knew of some quick spreads (other than one card spreads), that I could do in the little free time that I have (usually no more than twenty minutes, sometimes half an hour).
I picked up the tarot mainly for meditative and calming purposes, so those are the types of spreads that I am looking for.

Hi cait!

You might want to browse the spreads on the Tarot Spread index also listed at the top of the Tarot Spread Forum page as a sticky.

There are lots of spreads, some meditative as well, for you to peruse.

2) How you'll feel about it/others who might be involved
3) How it affects you

Fast Solution

2) The cause of the problem
3) The solution to your problem

What you get spread
1)What you have
2)What you need to know
3)What you get

What's happening spread
1)The event
2) What you need to know about this event
3) It's ultimate affect on you

Quickie 3
1)The issue, the root of the question
2) Present circumstances

PNS (this spread is from the forum, and I find it very useful)

Feel the fear and do it anyway

Question PNS

I saw the PNS spread and I tried it. That one is really good. I also saw the Smiley face spread and had a really good reading from it.

Thanks for bringing this up. the Circle of STones are three card readings, and this gives me some nice choices, if I need a structure.

For you, here is a nice 5 card spread: 1...2...3....4....5
