A Reading with the KARD Spread

I was just playing around with ideas for spreads and came up with one that used the positions Keep, Reconsider, and Discard, each paired with “Because.”

When I wrote it out I realized if I just added something beginning with “A” I would be spelling “KARD” with the spread position titles. So I added “Analyze,” and a new spread was born with a quirky name: the KARD spread. (I figure KARD will be easy to remember because of Card, as in Tarot Card, yes?)

(I know it's not impossible that someone else has already thought of this. If you've copyrighted it or something, be sure to let me know!)

Let’s see what I can get out of this. I am using Corrine Kenner’s wonderful Wizard’s Tarot, illustrated by John J. Blumen (Llewellyn Worldwide).

The layout looks like this:

8-CARD “K A R D” SPREAD
by Zanna Starr

………………………..1, 2…………………………

3,4……………………………………………….5,6

……………………..…7, 8………………………...


1) Keep or embrace this: TEN OF WANDS
I want to keep/embrace my ability to be efficient, organized, and committed to accomplishing what I set out to accomplish, even if things weigh me down near the end.
2) Because… ACE OF SWORDS
Because this trait helps me focus my mind, think clearly, and make decisions quickly and with confidence.


3) Analyze this: THREE OF PENTACLES
I want to analyze what it takes in terms of training or guidance for me to achieve mastery and craftsmanship in an area of study or skill.
4) Because… THREE OF CUPS
Because my analysis can show how interaction and celebration with close friends can play a large role in that process.


5) Reconsider this: SIX OF CUPS
I want to reconsider how I view past relationships and memories.
6) Because… THE SUN
Because these past relationships and memories have an impact on my current identity and personal strength, my self-awareness and ability to appreciate the brightest, most rewarding features of my life.


7) Discard or avoid this: FOUR OF CUPS
I want to discard/avoid any tendency to ignore or miss opportunities or gifts that are readily available to me.
8) Because… SIX OF SWORDS
Because ignoring or missing opportunities or gifts can make my journey turbulent, stressful, and even dangerous.

  1. I think it is a wonderful spread
    It covers a lot of ground and I especially like the "because"cards
    These could be a welcome addition to any spread
