The cards on the "left wing" talk about feminine energies of the moment, and the "right wing," the masculine, active energies. Each new card responds to the previous one and lifts the bird higher, and the querent into greater clarity.

The positions are:

1. The "Lift Off" (here and now)
2. The resistance card--fear of flying
3. Response-ability to the fear
4. Inner support (intuition) of responsibility
5. External support (intelligent action responding to the intuition)
6. Relaxation and acceptance
7. Arrival at a new level of awareness

I felt that this spread actually makes pretty effective use of the energy of the cards; the masculine wing/feminine wing was a little hard to relate though.

Namaste,

I would agree with you. This particular spread does well to teach a new reader with the deck how to relate each card to one another, so as to create a flowing story amongst the cards through the action of each card "working" off of the card before it. It's a smart yet subtle way to introduce storytelling and intuitive understanding of the cards to new readers.
