Exclamation Another Heart Spread


See post 17 below for an updated version!

Here is (another) relationship spread in the shape of a heart. When I created it, I intended it to be a cute, just-for-fun Valentines Day spread, but in using it and in practice, it can sometimes give harsh answers. For example, in practice (not reading for real people) I got a reading that pretty much said "she's only interested in him for his money"!!! So use at your own risk! But seriously, if you try it, please let me know how it works for you.

--2---1--
7---3---8
--5---4--
----6----

1. Him
2. Her
3. The relationship
4. How she sees him
5. How he sees her
6. Physical aspects of the relationship
7. Where the relationship came from
8. Where the relationship is going

Wow, this is very similar to one I use that I learned from someone here, wish I could remember who.

Seeking your input....


Okay I did tried this spread for a friend and was a lil confused by the end result.. Maybe your input would help to get a different prospective of it..

--2---1--
7---3---8
--5---4--
----6----

1. Him- Eight of Wands
2. Her- Ace of Swords
3. The relationship- Nine of Swords
4. How she sees him-Nine of Cups
5. How he sees her- The Devil
6. Physical aspects of the relationship- Ten Of Cups
7. Where the relationship came from- Seven of Cups
8. Where the relationship is going- Five of Swords

I don't think this man really loves her and has no intentions of going anywhere.. He seems loving at all times around her but something tells me it's not genuin...

I think this spread clearly shows that he's obsessed with her. (Devil in "how he sees her position). He quickly entered the relationship, possibly a "love at first sight" sort of reaction (8 wands.) She therefore had power with him as her conquest, as indicated by the Ace of Swords. This card also speaks to me that she has a more practical attitude about the relationship in some ways, whereas he just swiftly moved into it carried along by passion.

9 of Swords to describe the relationship doesn't bode well and indicates a lot of strife in the relationship. She sees him as the fulfillment of all her dreams (9 cups) of what a man should be. But he's obsessed with her (Devil) and that means he feels she's his possession and that he'll be controlling of her and hard to get rid of if she decides to break it off. ( You're right when you said he's not going anywhere).

Physical aspects of the relationship are good, it seems to me, as indicated by the 10 of cups. Sexual compatibility is probably good.

But the 7 Cups as to where the relationship came from indicates to me that neither of them really came from a basis in reality. There may have been some basic confusion on both their parts as to what they want/need/desire from a relationship or that they had unrealistic dreams about what this relationship would be, or that they each had different ideas that were not compatible or based in fact.

With the 5 Swords as the outcome, I don't see that the relationship is going to be "happily ever after". I see that it's probably not going to work out in the long run and that the breakup might be quite unpleasant.

Hi Rachelcat, just thought I'd let you know I've tried your spread as it looked really great (tho I think I've come up with a biased interpretation). Here's the thread:

Thanks for posting this.

Cyllah and Lyric:


Thanks for trying out the spread. Wow, I warned you it could be a bit harsh at times! I agree with Lyric's interpretation, unfortunately for the relationship. I particularly think linking the 8 Wands and 7 Cups as "love at first sight," combined with the Devil, as obsession, are good ideas. Sorry, I never like to see 5 Swords in an outcome position! I hope all turns out well. Forewarned is forearmed, as they say.

goosebumps!


I know this thread has been dead for awhile...but I just had to tell of an amazing occurence that truly gave me goosebumps!

I did this spread, and it just did not seem right, so I decided to shuffle again. Well, in the middle of shuffling, after I had shuffled for a few times, some cards fell out of the deck. As I turned them over, they turned out to be the EXACT same cards I had just disregarded, minus one! I said to myself, ok, I'll read them, they obviously want to be read, wow. But where is the last card?

I stopped shuffling, turned the deck over, and there it was, the bottom card! I am still new to the cards and their power, but this truly amazed me :-O Wow, I am still shocked.

after reading


And then, after trying again to read the spread, I had an "aha" moment and realized the cards were completely accurate! Go figure...

I just had to post a thank you for this brilliant spread! seriously, it works perfectly for me and the thing about harsh truths- it does reveal them, and dead on too.
