Have you seen this spread before?

I don't know if you have seen this spread before. I learn it from a book called "Evoluation of Tarot" (The book is not in English so I translate it in the way I think it is in English). The author mixed with other spreads then made her own spread - Pearl Necklack. (Also direct translation to English)

1 -- 2 -- 3 -- 4 -- 5 -- 6 -- 7
------------- 0 --------------

0 = Focus
1 = Motivation
2 = What is the problem
3 = Blind point
4 = How to cope with the problem
5 = The best way to cope with the problem
6 = Indication (long term)
7 = Conclusion

I have tried it out and find that this spread works with me. I have forgotten my reading last time but I will tried to remember it and post my reading out later.

You may think my words used are aweful and I am sorry for my poor English.

I understand your English very well! This looks like an interesting spread. I will try it out and see what happens. Thanks for posting it!

Very interesting, I'll try it out next time I read for myself.

I wish people who have trouble communicating would just shut up.

Your English is just fine Silencio... better than many Americans I know...

Very interesting looking spread. I'll have to give it a try soon... thanks very much for posting it.

Yes, the Pearl Necklace

'Lo all,

So, here we have the cards just layed out in a row, but isn't "Pearl Necklace" a great name for this spread? All of a sudden it's not just a row of cards, but a string of pearls. Beautiful.


The secret to magic is knowing what to wish for. If you wish for things you're not going to get, your magic will never work.

Cool WOW!!!

Silencio, thank you for posting such a wonderful spread!! I just finished a reading with it, and it was fabulous! I was much more able to do the reading in the "story-telling" style that flows so nicely for me. The person asking the question was really impressed too. It was a fairly difficult reading (meaning-wise, for me anyway), and it really helped me keep all the cards and their relationships to each other in perspective.

This spread is a definite keeper on my list.

Thanks again!!

Silencio: can you please explain the difference between positions 4 and 5? Are these two different ways of coping? Or does 5 position flow from the 4?

I was wondering that too Diana. I was thinking it should read maybe:

4 - How you are coping with the problem

5 - How you should be coping with the problem

But that's just my spin on it.

Silencio: it is a really good spread though, and I am sure I shall use it soon.
And your English is really good, don't worry

4 - How you are coping with the problem
5 - How you should be coping with the problem
That was how I interpreted the two as well, and it worked very nicely. It stayed within the pattern of how the cards were answering the question.
