This spread is designed to challenge you. It’s slightly less specific than prior spreads.
9 cards represent the Hermit: the light bearer who listens as hidden aspects of the psyche, and the world’s soul, speak.
The spread will provide an overview of 3 different planes of situational experience. 3 rows of 3 cards each create 3 statements.
- Highest potential of the situation
- The situation at face value/what you know about the situation.
- What is operating in shadow; what’s presently unacknowledged or under the surface.
This reading might be challenging if you don’t have a lot of experience with cards but it is a great one for practice.
What we are doing with this spread is making space to let the cards tell us key story-lines in a situation. It’s a chance to let yourself free associate. You might like to write down a few words for each card and come up with a sentence or statement for each row.
Initially it might be a good idea to have the cards all face down and only turn over row 2 first. To first connect with the situation at Face Value before examining other aspects of the situation.
Eventually as your confidence increases and your understanding develops, you may find this a very useful spread to use when reading for other people.
