Designed to help you investigate deep emotional struggles and learn why you feel the way that you do.
1. The Issue This card represents the topic of the reading. It can represent the individual the reading is for, or the specific problem you are trying to understand. 2. The Struggle This card represents the thing that is your most immediate obstacle.
The center six cards examine the things within you that impact card one. We could say that we’re looking at your hopes and fears, the factors that determine how you feel about your situation. The row is chronological from left to right, with present day in the middle.
Top Row. External The upper row is representative of lighter aspects of the psyche. This is the face you show others, and what you are consciously, externally aware of. Bottom Row. Internal The bottom row is the shadow aspect, your hidden fears, the feelings you wont acknowledge to yourself.
Bottom of Cut. Outcome I use the bottom card on the deck or the bottom card of the cut, depending how I deal, as the destination or outcome card. This tells us how you can expect things to “shake out”, if you continue the current course.
