Hi all, I am new here, and just came back to tarot after doing a few spreads about 5 years ago. I guess I didn't realy feel up to handling the power I felt till recently <shrug>.
Anyway, I did, I think, my second spread with the Thoth deck and had a surprising reading. I am hoping, as you are more experienced than I (could hardly be less), you might help me understand it clearly.
I did the 15-card spread that was described in the booklet that came with the deck, 5 sets of three cards.
Am I correct in my understanding that:
1) the center set is the question/issue at present or that the reading is about.
2) the upper right set is what will happen with no change of course
3) the upper left set is what will happen with a change of course
--given that the upper right and left are at odds--
4) the lower left shows the impulse/psychology/issues behind the querry
5) the lower right shows...energies behind the scene, sort of the natural flow and suggestions on how to follow it
6) the center card of each set represents the querant (me) or issue at hand and the cards to either side modify/influence that center card.
The reason I ask, the reading seemed right on as to what I was asking about, and the impulses behind the issue. Also, the "current path" set equalled the best I have hoped for. And the "current path" set and the "behind the scenes"/"advice" set in themselves gave me part of what I had asked for, the more Light part of the issue.
I guess what I am wondering, is it sometimes right not to change? My question was _how_ to change and the cards, assuming I had the above assumptions correct, indicated that changing would be a bad idea; that change would lead to wish granted but dissapointing and/or wrong.
Thanks for any insight you can give me,
