June 2001 Spread of the Month

What with A&E running a month of all-new Biography episodes, I got an idea for a spread.  There are some caveats for it, of course.  It's important to have a philosophical approach, with an emphasis on free will and an avoidance on pure prediction, when using this spread--it could be dangerous in the hands of a dogmatic, "This is the way it is..." kind-of reader.  Then again, that's true of any spread, really.

 

Biography Spread by Diane Wilkes

Separate the deck into three piles: Major Arcana, Court Cards, Minor Arcana.  Once separated, shuffle each pile separately and place them face-down in that order, to select cards as directed.

         6                       7

         8                       9
