It’s quick, easy, and I’m calling it, “Pip’s Short and Sweet Spread” (I think everyone who creates card spreads should include their name so credit can be given, don’t you?).
It’s 4 cards, lay them out however you like – I rarely used the layout of different spreads I’m using – and this is how it works:
Card one is the answer to your question.
Card two is the ‘because’ of the answer.
Card three is the ‘so’ what next.
Card four is the ‘and then’.
What can expect if I do x?
10 Swords: Overwhelm, too much, exhaustion.
10 Cups: Because I need time with my family.
Fool: So, make your decision, start fresh, and go for it.
Empress: And then you’ll have the time to bring new life into your situation.
See? Short and sweet, but full of information!
It can actually be used with a question such as, “Should I….”. I know tarot readers dislike yes/no questions overall, but sometimes you really need an answer and this will work for that.
So for the above, you’d have something like:
Should I do x?
Yes, you’re done, you’re over what’s going on, and you need to head towards that light in the distance.
Because, it will bring more happiness to your family situation.
So take the leap and trust your decision.
And then things will grow and progress in an abundant way.
A slightly different take, but with that shift from ‘what to expect’ to ‘should I’, it’s a more defined answer in some ways.
