I'm not a fan of April foolery, so in these last few minutes of March 31st, I'm offering you a silly-yet-useful bit of fun:
For those moments when you are just not sure that the guy, the girl, the job, the trip, the naked fire spinning, was such a good idea.
Card 1 - Where am I at right now? (What the hell happened?)
Card 2 - Where am I headed? (And will I find my pants?)
Card 3 - If I continue on this path, what can I expect to encounter? (Please no spiders.)
Card 4 - How will this play out in the end if I keep moving in this direction? (Hopefully booze.)
Card 5 - What is the overall theme/sense of this situation? (Probably booze.)
The layout shown is a quickie sample. If you want a little more symbolism, you can lay out the cards in a compass or crossroads style. Card 1 would be in the north, Card 2 in the east, Card 3 in the south, and Card 4 in the West, with Card 5 in the center or over-laying the spread. Whatever works for you.
I rarely read for "timing" because I'm weirdly drawn to sabotaging myself if I narrow down a span of time for something. (I will purposely stall or rush an action - just to be particular.)
If you are not entirely crazy like me, cards 2, 3, and 4 can be timeline cards. Card 2 can signify immediate future, Card 3 can be a little further out (weeks), and Card 4 can speak to the far off future (months).
Enjoy! And may your path be bright with good fortune. (And may you always find your pants.)
