The fourth season of Sherwood Forest Faire starts up next weekend -- I'll once again be out there in the yellow vardo doing Tarot readings! If you have a chance to pass by (we're 40 miles from Austin, just off 290), please come and say "Hi"!
Rather than post a reading this time, I wanted to share one of the spreads I like to use. In fact, I use this spread more than half the time at Sherwood.
It's an original spread -- I call it "Fill the Cross". When you lay the first eight cards out, they leave a little "plus sign" or "cross" in the middle. After reading the first eight, I lay the ninth card down on top of this "cross".
The spread lends itself well to "General" and "Career" readings. I can also draw additional cards (if necessary) and create "spurs" off the cards along the edges to dig further if I need to.
Here's how I read the cards:
Card 1: Where you are right now
Card 2: What holds you back
Card 3: What pulls you forward
Card 4: A weakness to be addressed
Card 5: A strength to be utilized
Card 6: How you might turn the weakness
Card 7: How you might apply the strength
Card 8: What you'll see along the way
- and finally -
Card 9: What you'll see at the end
