Card positions[edit]


Card 1: The past. Previous conditions that lead to the current situation.

Card 2: The present. Where the querant stands at this moment.

Card 3: The future. The direction this situation is headed - not so much as a prediction of unknowable future events, but the course currently set by what is occurring at the present time.

Card 4: The "type of vibration that the querant must learn to handle," or competence they should develop, in order to master the present situation.

Card 5: Environmental factors; other things going on at this time that may not be directly part of the situation described in the reading, but that have relevant effects.

Card 6: Forces in opposition to the querant's interests; obstacles to be overcome.

Card 7: Overall result, summary, or synthesis of the information described in the previous cards.

Although such analysis is often flawed, those wishing a fast and simple yes/no or go/no go reading can count upright and reversed cards in this spread, with the central seventh card counting double, to see which one wins: more upright votes positive answer, more reversed negative answer, equal (bearing in mind the double counting of the centre card) inconclusive.
