Ok, it took me a while cos I was doubtful whether to post it or not. It is (at least I believe and was brought to believe so) a very popular spread, so I didn't want to step on any toes and claim to have changed the positions in a way that instead was openly shown somewhere online - I have searched for versions of it, and it seems there's nothing like that, but caution is never enough. I didn't want to hurt of annoy anyone, claiming i had brought changes that instead also other people had.
This spread is probably the first I really felt drawn to. I picked it up maybe... 5 or 6 years ago? When my interest in tarot cards was still something hidden (often to my very own eyes), and it was not structured yet. I picked it on a book/course I had for a while - now I have no idea what it was and who it was by, sorry. More recently, when my fondness grew, I found myself using it more often, and finding that in readings some positions expressed different values than the one I learnt better, and designed my own reading.
Star of David Spread - Pollux's variation for sharing...
1) The Querent (or person involved) in the Past
Basis of the reading, Root cause, origin of the problem as placed in the Past. Often it has some archetypal value (a bit like Kether in the Tree of Life).
2) The Querent in the Present
Conditions for them at the present, as they are now at the moment of the reading. Actual, contingent situation, as consequence and result of the previous card - positive or negative aspects.
3) The Querent in the Future
Most likely outcome as natural development of the previous situation; imminent future for the issue. How things will go if the situation won't be changed in a remarkable/detectable way.
4) Environement - Positive
Outer influences that (will) prove favourable to the consultant - they might be before his eyes already. What gives benefits to the consultant in the present situation.
5) Environement - Negative
Outer influences that (will) prove negative or harmful to the consultant. Oppositions, enemies, bad attitudes or habits that hold them.
6) Environement - Wild
Unexpected forces showing up, with surprise effect. Unforeseen influences or developments that require attention, factors that will prove negative or positive according to how the querent reacts or exploits them.
The latter more than the former. A guide for future choices and behaviours; the overall messages, archetypal at times as well (a combination of 1 and 6 at times)
The Star of David, you might know already, combines active and passive in the two triangles (point up = Fire/male ; point down = Water/female). In the spread, the first assesses how the querent influences the issue himself, with his own powers and choices; the second is the receptive pole of the reading, summing all the outer infuences.
I almost always used it for question-based readings, but I have tried it for general ones as well, and it worked fine (even though of course it's hard to detect the pattern and the issue for the position at times are too specific).
I also like the way the cards combine in meanings, and the relationships they establish among themselves. 1-6-7 was the most frequent for me.
Unluckly I cannot give some more specific examples, since my memory fails to draw one, and I still have not a Tarot Journal (but I spotted a notebook with "The Kiss" from Klimt on the cover, and I think it would be great for it!
Should you have other questions or else...
