I picked up a little bargain gift box at Border's (hey, it was only $4.99) with a little tarot deck and a book called "Tarot Basics" by Evilin(sic.) Burger and Johannes Fiebig. Their card interpretations seem a little out of left field, but there are about six pages of different spreads (please, a break from the Celtic Cross!). One of them is called "The Sword":
1.The heart of the matter
2.Your starting point
3.Your support/ base/ foundation
4.Your chance/ what will aid you
5.A problem that's being solved
6.A desire that's being fufilled
7.New knowledge and insights
It seems kind of strange to me to do a reading in the shape of a sword, and given the positional meanings, what sort of question would it be used for?
Has anyone else ever seen this one? What do you think of it?
