Timeline:

- Sign-up closes and reading partners to be assigned on: 15th June

- Reading and feedback to be completed by: 6th July

Note: Please PM me and your partner if you expect to be late with your exchange, and an extension of time will be set. Otherwise, unfortunately, you'll earn a strike!



Spreads:

The suggested spread for this month is:


A Simple Solstice Spread


1......2

....3


The Northern hemisphere version:

1 - The shortest night - what you can leave behind this Solstice
2 - The longest day - what will achieve its peak this Solstice
3 - The warming of the air - how you can best celebrate and enjoy this Solstice


The Southern hemisphere version:
1 - The shortest day - what you can leave behind this Solstice
2 - The longest night - what will achieve its peak this Solstice
3 - The cooling of the air - how you can best relax and recuperate this Solstice


You are also free to choose your own spreads, with a minimum of three cards. I'm leaving the links to the spreads from the last exchanges in here for reference - if you want to do the same spread please see with your reading partner which one you both like: Fibonacci spread (Posts 8 and 9), Compass spread, Tirage en Croix, Dynamic Hexagramme spread, Comte de Mellet spread, Chronata's spread


CHALLENGE!


Note: Challenge is an additional task for those who'd like to try something new and experiment with alternative reading methods. It is in no way compulsory and can be done by only one of the partners in an exchange (or neither!), according to their wishes and agreement.


This month, we're going to pay attention to details. After interpreting the spread, examine each card closely and try to find at least one detail you've never seen or paid much attention to before. What is this or what can it be? Why is this detail in the image? What does it add to your understanding of the card and/or the spread? Does it enhance it, add to it, or alter it?


Have fun experimenting!



Feedback:

Please make your feedback as detailed as possible so your reading partner can benefit from it. It is NOT about how you would read the cards your partner drew for you within your personal system of reading the Tarot de Marseille, but about how your partner read the cards for you within his/her system. So please let your partner know how well you could relate to the reading, if there are things you didn't understand ("How did you arrive at this interpretation?" etc), what was accurate and what wasn't.. Constructive criticism on things that didn't hit the mark are welcome, too! All in a friendly and respectful learning way of course!


Decks:

The TdM Exchange is a friendly and fun place to share and develop our reading skills with Tarot de Marseille decks, other historic decks with non-scenic pips and Tarot de Marseille inspired modern decks. If you aren't sure if you have a deck that is suited, just ask. If you decide to read with a deck that your sitter does not have, please post pictures of the cards you drew so everybody can follow.


Pips reading methods:

There are a lot of different reading methods of the Tarot de Marseille and especially the pips. These are all equally welcome and all ok. If you don't know where to start, check the forum index (especially the thread on "Reading Methods" - and don't be shy or scared by the non-scenic pips, just jump on right in!) In order to make this a fruitful learning experience for the reader, the sitter and everybody following the exchange, please take the time to explain what method you are using for the pips. Links to threads here on the forum explaining the method or single cards are most welcome.


Please share the process of your reading, not only the results. And please take the time and effort (as most people do anyway) to write more than a line on each card. Tell your partner what your interpretation is based on, what you saw, what brought you to the conclusions. The more detail, the more everybody will learn!


No-show/Problems:

If anybody has a problem completing their reading or feedback, please please please get in touch with your reading partner and myself. It's not nice to be left hanging in an exchange - and whoever is NOT completing an exchange he or she signed up for (and especially fails to communicate about it) will not be allowed to sign up again until it is completed - and in worst case even risks a three months ban from all reading exchanges.


If there should be any problems, feel free to contact me and I will try to sort it out, with the help of another moderator if necessary.


(Of course the Reading Exchange Posting Guidelines apply for this exchange as well - and there are some good tips for feedback etc in that post!)


Wishing everyone a happy exchange!
