Self Understanding Spread.


Here is a spread which will help one come to an understanding of oneself in the midst of a particular situation, or just in general. The spread causes us to question how well we really know ourselves, by telling us about what factors do and do not contribute to our being.

1. This is what I am.
2. This is what I am not.

3. This is what I have.
4. This is what I do not have.

5. This is what I think.
6. This is what I do not think.

7. This is what I feel.
8. This is what I do not feel.

9. Important issue.

As for the layout, then just lay it out however you would feel comfortable, but I would do it this way:

1........2

3........4
.....9.....
5........6

7........8

If you fancy giving this spread a try, if you like, post your results on the 'Your Readings' section for discussion. I find this spread deeply insightful, it often gives me some suprising insights about myself which I would never have considered otherwise.

Hi The Hanged Man,

I find your spread very insightful for myself. I was just wondering about position 9 "important issue". Do you mean an important factor about one`s self? I`m just curious, in my reading it would make sense that way.

Blessings, Astraea Aurora

Hi Astrea,

Yes, I suppose you could see it as an important issue about oneself. The position is just to throw something extra up to pay special attention to, this could be anything, given the context of the reading.
