Tarot @ Teatime — Episode 30: 3‑card spreads & layering

In this episode, Hon­ey Heart and Elrik Mer­lin con­tin­ue their dis­cus­sion of 3‑card spreads by look­ing at the many ways in which this sim­ple but infor­ma­tive spread can be used, assign­ing dif­fer­ent inter­pre­ta­tions to the cards that appear in the three posi­tions of the read­ing, such as “Past/Present/Future” and “Mind/Body/Spirit”.

In our pre­vi­ous episode, we talked about the use of 1, 2 and 3‑card read­ings and why and when you’d choose one of these over the larg­er spreads. As we learned, even these small spreads can pack a lot of infor­ma­tion into just a few cards. Now in this episode, we dig a lit­tle deep­er into that work­horse of a spread, the 3‑card spread.

We’ll talk about how these spreads can be used effec­tive­ly to assist in per­son­al devel­op­ment, and we’ll talk about how to enhance these spreads by using the “lay­er­ing” tech­nique — adding cards from oth­er decks to a read­ing. We’ve men­tioned the lay­er­ing tech­nique before, but we’ll go into quite a lot more depth here.

Episode 30 pre­mieres on Thurs­day April 14th at 12 noon and 4pm /SLT Pacif­ic Time (8pm and mid­night in the UK) and is repeat­ed at the same times on Sun­days and Thurs­days until April 24th.
