Astro~Twist Spread~ Tech Thread


"personalized" yearly astrological spread - revisited for 2005

a couple threads of this spread from the past
double twist on the astrological year spread
how to dance the astrology spread twist


I want to do a reading & walk through 'study group' of a personalized twist on the well known astrological spread.
I also want to include Tarot & Astrological aspects in relation to the throw.
For Tarot it would be things such as Soul & Personality; Year cards etc.
For Astrology- how the throw related with the natal & transiting planets & progressions- etc.
Sounds like alot- but no pressures- we will only bite off as much as we can chew.
The thing with this spread is it's potential- I don't want to leave anything out, and anyone is free to focus on whatever comes out of it. (more astrological than tarot or vise-versa, numerology, or simply elemental patterns- what ever)

When I first saw and used the astrological spread, I wanted a way in which I could merge both; the overall house aspects for the year in general- and a month to month view.
Using the cards to read like this in the traditional layout manner seemed redundent....and the fact that you always started with Aries really bugged me.
It took a thread here at AT a year ago, years of rolling it around in my head prior to that & more familiarity with astrology- WALLA!
The Astrological spread, twisted around to fit each individual as well as being able to read it from both directions in the same throw.


things needed for study~
/*optional

1. A tarot deck {duh}
2. your Rising Sign
3. natal chart* - can be had at www.astro.com
4. soul & personality cards*
5. year card*
a calander to "chart" cards & such would also be helpful


Study will be formulated something like-

"laying out the cards"
1. What order they are placed in, to make the spread personalized.
Q&A
* participants will post their spread with card #1 being the Scorpio position (current sunsign)
2. Where to start to do a:
- (annual) the 12 aspects of life within the the year overall.
- (monthly) month to month - play by play of the year- starting in January
Q&A

"introductions"
-Hi, my name is....I have a soul of a.....and a personality of a.....my rising is, my sun is in, my moon is in....
This is where will give what ever data we want to share about ourselves
Note on Year cards- there are two ways to do a year card- for those who use the calandar year method- do nothing different than you normally do.
For those that use thier birthday to dictate what card- you might want to point out when it changes and what it is.
{as for me I don't have to worry about ANY of that, for my birthday and the new year is 1 hour and 13 minutes apart}


"now the readings"
Card position meanings for:
-(annual) the whole year house forcast- the 12 Life Aspects-
Q&A
-(monthly) the month to month reading- I hope for this part to be active throughout the year. Each card can be carefully looked into the month prior, keeping the 'view' fresh, as well as keeping us from having to do both readings fully all at once.
Q&A

"off to study"
-participants will have two threads each

Astro-twist: Annual {name}
&
Astro-twist: Monthly {name}




Starting the Study-
"laying out the cards"
There are several things that make this spread different from the 'traditional'
Traditionally this spread is layed starting out at a 9 o'clock position and placing twelve cards in a counter-clockwise circle.
This first position represents Aries/1st House: this position represents aspects related to the house-
Some will read this position for a time-forcast type reading- the card would represent the influences during the time when the Sun is in Aries.

The difference with the way the 'personalized' spread reads is this-
It starts with the lay out, still working with the "clock" form layout....
In a reading the first card may or may not start at the traditional Aries/9 o' Clock position.
The first card goes in the sign position that the Sun is currently in- example: a reading done today, first card is placed in Scorpio.
All cards after follow the counter-clockwise circle.

If you can have a copy of your natal chart that can be written on-
You can 'map' the cards on the chart. Then hang it on the wall for a quick reference & reminder


SO- now the "introductions" part and any questions? before we pull any cards

Well I'd like to participate in this spread. Although Lunalafey has helped me out with this one in another thread, but I'm still none the wiser of putting it all together myself. So look forward to having it broken down step by step.

So My name is Lucille, my rising sign is in Pisces, Sun in Aries and Moon in Taurus. My Personality card is the Heirophant and soul card Temperance. Year card would be
Emperor from March 22 2004, then will change March 22 2005 to Heirophant-My personality card.
I will be using Ancestral Path for this one. My cards are shuffled cut and ready to lay out, so when you're ready.
That's all the info you require now is it?

I clicked the links (I thought were links) for soul/personality cards and year card and got a 'sorry no matches' message.

My name is Deborah.
My Personality Card is Judgment 20
My Soul Card is 2 High Priestess
My Cycle Year is 6 Lovers, which will change to 7 Chariot on August 1

I am Leo, Libra Rising, Moon in Capricorn, the only planets in my natal chart that aren't in Leo are Saturn in Scorpio, Uranus in Cancer and Neptune in Libra. Did not know this, descendant in Aries and true node Sagitarius. Capricorn and Cancer are Imun Coeli and Medium Coeli respectively- keeps all that fire in balance? (no wonder my hidden/teacher card is 11-Justice) with having a natal chart so heavily weighted in my 10th House, which looks as if it's sort of lying half way between Leo and Gemini???

Since Leo's love Legends (believing they are one and all...), that's the deck I'll be using.

Here's my cards...
Scorpio = Queen of Spears {Saturn}
Sagitararius = King of Shields {mean and true node}
Capricorn = King of Cups {Moon}
Aquarius = Two of Spears {Chiron}
Pisces = 10 Spears
Aries = 8 Cups
Taurus = 9 Shields
Gemini = 10 Cups
Cancer = 6 Cups {MC, Uranus}
Leo = Knight of Shields {Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Pluto}
Virgo= the Chariot (2005 cycle year)
Libra = 9 Cups {ascendant, Neptune}

I'm not getting this, I see Uranus, Venus and Mercury across the line in Cancer, but it says the only one in Cancer is Uranus. The other two are closer to Leo, by degrees? Never mind...I'm just confusing myself.

Before I get deeply started in my spread-
I like to take the time to record such thisa as the elements at work for each position.
Such as in Aries/fire, I have the Sun which translates to the element fire {by way of Leo}. So here is a position that will be heavily influenced the the Fire element.
I also like to note any connections that appear such as a Sun card in a Leo position, or say the Devil card {capricorn} falls in the sign where natal Saturn resides.
Have a look and play around with it.
They are just notes- not to be 'read' -but adds to the influnces
