We don’t always have a question when we want to understand ourselves or our circumstances better. These spreads are an invitation to look closer at individual sections of our lives.
They can be a way to look at a single issue from multiple angles, or to consider what is working or not-working in the whole.
The Five-Elements Spread ($20) is a sometimes-esoteric look inside at parts that make up the whole of you.
- Earth (body)
- Air (mind)
- Fire (vitality/identity)
- Water (emotions)
- Spirit (wholeness)
The First Key ($25) is similarly based on an elemental survey, this one leaning into life-context.
- Fire – Career and creativity
- Water – Relationships and emotions
- Air – Action, choices and conflict
- Earth – Home and the body
From one of these areas I draw an additional three cards to go deeper in that arena. You may request a specific focus, otherwise I pull from the pile where I find the signifier, the card that designates the client.
