Integrating Tarot Card Meanings in a Spread Part 1
Integrating card meanings is the true art and heart of a tarot reading. It’s about seeing through to the central pattern or gestalt of the spread: the organized whole that is more than the sum of its parts. We’ll acknowledge the many ways in which this is normally accomplished, while focusing on exploring a few unusual methods.
