Determining Attraction Spread

I'm trying out a new spread I just learned called The Determining Attraction Spread. When the cards are thrown it will look like this:


1. What quality is So-&-So attracted to (in general, not in you)?
2. How does So-&-So view me physically?
3. How does So-&-So view my personality?
4. What would So-&-So think of being on a date with me?*
5. Advice on how to be most attractive to So-&-So?

*Interpret ''date'' how you will.

Here's what it looked like for myself, doing a test reading on how my newlywed husband feels toward me.

This seems like a great reading for using ''The Sexual Key To The Tarot'' by Theodor Laurence. I adore this book, it is so detailed in it's interpretation of each card, from the minor to the major, and I would love to read anything else by the author.

The first card, XXI The World Rx, seems to indicate he's into women who are sexually playful and very open sexually. However, the reverse status indicates that he would prefer them not to be promiscuous. She is insatiable and erotic yet monogamous, ''stuck'' on one man.

The second card, Ace of Swords, reveals how he views me physically and, according to Laurence's interpretation, he sees me as having a winning clitoris! I am able to overcome hesitant sexuality!

The third card, 6 of Cups, represents his feeling about my personality and this card definitely shows how we have been friends for 15 years. We've known each other since I was in high school and we've stayed friends this whole time. He feels comfortable around me.

The fourth card, VII The Chariot, describes how he'd feel being on a ''date'' with me. The chariot is a fitting description because I know how much he'd like to take me places. His perfect date varies from bicycling 20 miles to long walks to long road trips.

The final card, The Page Of Wands, describes how I can be more attractive to him. I could write him letters describing new projects, or texting him is more likely. If I texted him more often.

Yeah, this is a pretty safe spread. I trust it. Seems pretty appropriate.

A Different Daily Spread

I just went to the Aeclectic Tarot forums to find a better daily spread; I really need one that fits me correctly. And I found this one by Thorhammer. So, here we go, I'll try it for a few days and see if it helps with understanding my day better.

It's just that I found with the previous spread I was using, the cards were correct, but the meaning of their positions didn't make any kind of sense to me or my day.


1. What will I do well today?

2. What do I need to leave behind in today?

3. What do I need to take forward from today?

I am the type of reader who always reads in inverted cards as they are. However today I get the feeling, since they all came up inverted, and it's a deck I haven't used for a while (Voyager) that I should turn them right side up. Really, it's just a feeling I have....but should I? Eh, fuck it, I'll leave them as they are....

1. Woman of Wands Rx

2. Nine of Wands Rx

3. Woman of Crystals Rx

I will do well today to leave behind infidelity? Well, that's a laugh! I just got married 2 months ago and I'm currently only seeing him, and he me. Maybe it's pointing to something else, like being manipulative sexually. Like I shouldn't whine for sex, or count how many times we're doing it a week....I hope this card is only pointing to that.

I will do well in being tired today. LOL. Being injured and needing to rest and take care of myself. Although, I'm not injured am sore. I've been working out non-stop for two months without making any progress with my body that anyone can see. I've recently trained to the point where I can run a continuous mile and I'm very proud of that, but I woke up too late today to do my proper workout. I'm busy waiting on my groceries to be delivered. And when he gets here, I'll want to eat I'm sure. Or it's telling me I'll be great at self-deception today. Awesome! Looks like a shitty day.

I need to take forward from today some kind of confrontation. These two bitches in this reading alongside the 9 of wands Rx looks pretty dicey. Like I'm headed for some kind of tense situation.

I will have to report back tonight to report what kind of day I've had.


All I did today was RELAX! And it was great!

Normally I exercise for 2 hours in the mornings without taking days off. I believe a habit is a habit and if I only did it 3 times a week I would forget to exercise at all.

This was a rare day, I relaxed, drank beer and ate ice cream. It was awesome. And this morning (Thursday the 15th) I was relaxed enough to run a complete mile. So, it was well worth the R&R.

No women to speak of, I didn't see or talk to anyone but BoB, my husband.
