21 Card Romany Spread
This is another very useful spread. It consists of 21 cards laid out in 3 rows of 7 cards. These represent the Past, the Present and the Future.
This is a great spread for practising interpreting cards that fall next to each other in a sequence. The cards tell a story as they go along from beginning to end. This is a great way to practice your skills of reading tarot cards.
There are no specific positions for this spread, however it can be very useful as a general overview and you can then explore in more detail issues that might arise. It also gives a good indication of people that might be involved in the situation.
This spread is traditionally called the Romany Spread.
This is a very simple spread to get an idea of what has happened in the past, which is having an effect on the Querant’s (person asking the question or person you are reading for) life now and the general way things are progressing now, in the present and how they are likely to unfold going forward into the future- if no changes are made.
It consists of 3 rows of 7 cards, laid from right to left and starting at the bottom of the table (i.e. closest to you, the reader)
Lay out 7 cards- this is the past
Lay out another row of 7 cards- this is the present
Lay out another row of 7 cards- this is the future outcome.
You can then read from card 1, from right to left and build up the story of what is happening as you go along from card to card.
You can also lay additional rows out after this, if you want to get more information going on the developments of the situation. Each further row adds extra information. This may be going forward into the future or it may be adding extra to the whole situation.
