Question Five Card Spreads


Can anyone provide some information about five card spreads? I haven't got a clue what they are.

Do you have a question about a specific five card spread? Because there are loads of five card spreads, the term just refers to any spread that uses five cards.

I don't have any in mind. The reason I want to know more about them is because I wanted more detailed/clearer answers to my questions (I've been using the 3 card spread).

You can always create your own spread of course. But if you don't want to do that, check out Anja's website, there are a lot of spreads to be found there.

Here's the five-card spread I usually use:

1. Root of the problem/concern/situation

2. Conditions at present

3. A surprise/the unexpected (could refer to past or future)

4. Advice card (what you should do next)

5. Outcome

This is my favourite - always works for me.

1. Situation/ your task

2. Problem

3. Solution

4. New insights/ what you're unaware of

5. Conclusion/ summary

I assume the last two spreads use the

12345 layout?
