Horseshoe Spread


Hey, I got so fond of Celtic Cross, Three Cards and Wheel forgot how this one worked.
There are, of course, variants.
But I'd love to know all of them from you!

7 card spread (aka horseshoe spread)

1st card - past
2nd card - present (about 4 weeks either side of reading)
3rd card - near future
4th card - answer
5th card - people/energy surrounding querent
6th card - attitudes/hope and fears
7th card - outcome of 3rd card/whole layout

i tend to read both 4th and 7th card together, they are especially helpful for a yes/or no question

Thanks a lot!

I now realized I could have searched the net for it!
I'm sorry, but thanks all the same!

I found almost the same spread in David V. Barrett's book Tarot. Here it is:
  1. Past
  2. Present
  3. Future
  4. The best course of action
  5. Influence of other people
  6. Obstacles
  7. Outcome
And the layout looks like this:

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

I have used the spread to find out, how I should act in some near future situations. The wording in the original (English-language) book may be a bit different because I translated the instructions from the Finnish version of the book.
