         8
  5              2

4                 3

Reminiscent of a Bride’s veil, this spread is particularly appropriate for questions about romance, especially when there seem to be hidden factors, or a good deal of uncertainty or mystification. Cards 1-7 are laid out face up. Card 8 is laid face down and turned up when all other cards have been read.

   1& 2—Past
   3—Obstacles
   4 & 5—Present
   6—Future (tomorrow to 6 weeks)
   7—Future (6 weeks to 3 months)

9After reading cards 1-8, ask questioner if Card 9 should be turned over for more information. The questioner can decide what it represents. Possibilities include: more information about either alternative or ways to reconcile alternatives. If questioner feels cards 1-8 give sufficient information, return card 9 to the pack without turning it over.

 

Bliss Triangle

This spread was inspired by  Rachel Pollack's  Shining Tribe Tarot, which I've found particularly suited to inner work. But it can be used with other decks as well.

What is my Bliss? or What is My Way to Ecstasy? 

 1       2        3

  7              4

     8         5

       9     6

          10

 

 

 

Place cards  in the shape of a  triangle. Cards 1-3 form the base of the triangle. Cards 1-3 only are placed horizontally so their bottoms face left.

Cards 1-3 Represents Foundation or Basis.
What is the basis, background or foundation...
1...on Spirit level?
2...on Subconscious level?
3...on Conscious level?

Cards 4-6: Subconscious Factors
4: What eases my way?
5: What challenges me?
6: Subconscious guidance to Conscious

Cards 7-9 Spirit Factors
7: What eases my way?
8: What challenges me?
9: Spirit message to Conscious

Card 10: What opens the way to bliss/ecstasy for me?
