So you start with Card 1 being the farthest in the past as it relates to the question and simply carry on through to card 9 which will show you the final outcome of the subject asked about. The best way to practice this kind of Tarot reading is to tell it like a story and just allow your intuition to flow and guide you.
Let’s move on now to a Tarot spread that is a bit different, as the cards are not in a row. This time we make a diamond pattern so we call this Tarot spread the Diamond Spread. Here’s the layout with the card numbers on –
Diamond Tarot Spread
Card 1: Positive aspects of the question asked, reasons for a ‘Yes’ answer
Card 2: Negative aspects of the questions asked, reasons for a ‘No’ answer
Card 3: What has already happened, what is behind the client
Card 4: What is likely to happen, what is ahead of the client
