Multiple Card Readings
The Six Card Reading.
AT THE TOP:Life Card This is a master referent clearly indicating the life purpose of the individual. Sometimes it is obvious that this selection is about a person's career or some other major activity. Sometimes it is about the way a person uses energy and points to a direction of movement in the life. However, sometimes, as if to force a shift from a too intellectual view, the card will evade a quick read.
This provides a wonderful opportunity for receiving information.

IN A CRESCENT AT THE CENTER:Three Guide Cards. The order of selection is up to the reader. In this spread, each card will correspond with one of three perspectives relative to the individual. That is, one card - not necessarily the first drawn - will represent hidden inner guidance (examples of which may be meditation, trance, prayer).
Another guide card will indicate where the individual's common guidance usually comes from: as from friends, walks in natural places, counselors or some other obvious pathway. And a another card, again not necessarily the third drawn, shows who hidden outer guidance comes from (angelic or devic realms, ancestors, collective telepathic connections, for some examples).
What is especially important about piecing together this information about parts of the personality, projections and connections is that, relative to the major cards, the reader can see how and why process work supports or blocks movement and growth (both, necessary elements in containing the largely at random developments of Soul work), the trends in direction of energy, and what shifts are possible, what transformation inevitable.
AT THE HEARTThe final selection is the card representing Present As finite as any individual moment may seem, in this reading it is easy to see how a moment can be the source of the whole. This card, which should be placed at center, with the guide cards positioned around it, is like a holon, a piece of a hologram, in that whatever is going on in the present continues to reverberate through all time/space, a perfect, if less energetic version of the whole.
The Seven Card Spread
Begin with the three major path cards: Life Card, Current Journey and Present.
Along with these
IN A CIRCLE AT THE CENTER:
Four Guide Cards: The order of selection is up to the reader. But in this spread, each card will correspond with one of the cardinal directions, which should be identified before drawing. East: The reader will have associations with this direction, such as beginnings, air, intellect, Eagle and dawn.
Whichever correlates the reader is used to are correct for this reading. They will be used to build bridges between the three major cards (life, current journey, and present moment). Consider, also, how the energy of the East card intermixes with the energies of the other guide cards. South: In choosing the second card, again order is only important according to what characteristics the reader believes correspond with an agreed upon direction. Whichever card the reader says is the South guide, becomes the South Guide.
Before drawing the card the reader will already have associations such as spirit, fire, midday and Phoenix. When the West and North guide cards have been selected, (again, based on reader's beliefs) all the energies, and images of the chosen guides can be seen, collectively, as parts of a circle, phases of a cycle and perhaps as parts of the personality or as working in conjunction with parts of the personality or the community or whatever and whoever are involved in the Current Journey.
The Ten Card Layout
The guide cards, based on four cardinal directions, Sky and Ground coordinates and an Inner referent will provide a structure by which to identify and characterize components of the individual's life direction and growth.
Begin with the three major path cards: Life card, Current Journey and Present.
