image of card spread

The idea of a spread is to help the reading flow. I am a linear thinker so my spreads are usually in a straight line.

I mainly use a straight line 3- or 5-card spread but have been known to go a bit wild with an 8-card spread!

I find the linear spread better because, if I’m doing a general reading, I can have a line for Love Interest, a line for Career Direction, a line for Relationships, etc.
