There are a LOT of spreads to choose from these days. It seems that every 99 cent ebook or website wants you to use the author's "new spread" (usually a three or four card blob). And then there are the old spreads that have been around forever. But what if your client comes in and wants to know about their relationship, or their job, or the future, or how many kids they will have (and so on).

Knowing which spread to cast whenever you give a reading (so that you will get the best answers) can be confusing to new students. It is easy to fall into the trap of believing that there is a spread for every occasion and that all you have to do is shuffle and deal out the cards like it says in the book. But that road leads to bland, vague, inaccurate readings (just ask your clients a month later for a tip since you "did such a good job" and see how much they complain about how little your advice helped).

A MUCH BETTER way to get around this problem is to have a handful of spreads that you know *really well* and adapt them to meet your current needs. If you have a "how to" spread and an overview spread, and also a good "yes/no" spread or two, something for timing and a choice spread then you are good to go. You don't have to limit the way you phrase your question to what your client says. You need to talk to them anyway and find out what they really want to know, and this allows you to decide the phrasing you want to use. All of this is covered in today's FREE lesson!
