The Different Path's Spread (6) Posted By: EnergeticAlien Source: www.tarotforum.net/showthread.php?t=129217 Author Unknown: I do not know what this spread is really called. My ex-boyfriend showed it to me. I'm not really sure how popular it is, or where it came from. It could very well be a popular/infamous spread already... I've just never been able to find it anywhere. In a way, I guess I'm sort of asking if anyone else has seen it before or used it. It's not a very "traditional" kind of spread. I'd love to see some more variations of it, or tweaks anyone's done with it. I've used this spread on a number of occasions and it actually works rather well for me.
**6** *8*3* 9*5*1 *7*2* **4**
I use this spread when I'm confused about certain roads/paths to take in life during certain situations.
Position 1 is the basis of the situation/where you are now. Position 2 and 3 are two different roads or paths (decisions) that you can go down or make. Positions 4 and 5 are two different situations that can arise from deciding to go down the path indicated in position 2. Positions 5 and 6 are another two different situations that can arise from deciding to go down the path indicated in position 3.
You'll notice that 5 is used twice, that is because that same situation is usually possible for both paths indicated in positions 2 and 3.
The remaining positions, 7 and 8, correspond to situations 4, 5, and 6 accordingly. If you hit situation 4, only 7 is usually the next situation. If you hit 5, both 7 and 8 are highly probable possibilities. If you hit situation 6, usually only 8 is the probable next situation.
Situation 9 is the overall outcome. This spread shows us how different paths can usually lead to the same conclusion - it's the journey that's important.
Alright I made this spread because one of my friends was asking me if I could do a reading for her about her and her girlfriend. Whether she should sweat the relationship out or just break it off. This one seems pretty accurate but it's still in a bit of testing. This is a 14 card spread.
First Row The first row is the path they are wanting to take. Thinking that they have a choice in the paths they can choose this is the path they are wanting to choose to go down. Maybe they want to go down this path but are more comfortable with the other path they are choosing. 1) How the questioner feels about the situation. 2) How this decision will affect the questioner now. 3) How others will feel about this situation. 4) How this decision will affect others now. 5) How this decision will affect the questioner in the long run. 6) Hos this decision will affect others in the long run. 7) Will the questioner be happy with this decision.
Second Row The second row is the path they will end up taking if they don't go with their original choice. This path is to stay on the path they are going on now and not falter from it. Ultimately this is the path they are not wishing to take or they might be wishing to take but there is another path open to them. 8) How the questioner feels about the situation. 9) How this decision will affect the questioner now. 10) How others will feel about this situation. 11) How this decision will affect others now. 12) How this decision will affect the questioner in the long run. 13) Hos this decision will affect others in the long run. 14) Will the questioner be happy with this decision.
