le grand jeu (67 cards)


found an old notebook got this one from a book at the university library when i was just starting to learn tarot and very quickly decided it was far too advanced for me at the time. Maybe i'll give it a shot since it's been a few years and I've had some more practice.

............33,32,31,30,29,28,27,26,25,24,23
present { ............................................} present
............66,65,64,63,62,61,60,59,58,57,56
22..............55.........................44..... ..........11
21...............54.......................43...... ..........10
20................53.....................42....... ...........9
19.................52........S.........41......... ..........8
18..................51.................40......... ...........7
17...................50 ..............39......................6
16....................49.............38........... ...........5
15.....................48...........37............ ...........4
14......................47.........36............. ...........3
13.......................46.......35.............. ...........2
12........................45.....34............... ...........1
.............................future
past.............................................. ...........past

step 1. read each set individually i.e. past,present future
step 2. read each past/future pairing as it's laid i.e 1/34, 12/45 etc
step 3. read each "high/low" pairing starting with 1/66, 2/65 etc untill you reach 33/22

i know...intense right?

citation: the tarot, richard cavendish 1986 c1975 crescent books (1987 according to amazon)

i cnp'd this from a txt file i just spent the past half hour creating lol
the top two rows are present the far left and far right columbs are past, and the middle rows are future and are supposed to be layed to create a sort of "V" shape with the significator in the middle...which to be honest i can't remember weither or not is pulled or just laid down last...if memory serves it's just laid down last as the general theme of the spread.

You can't have lots of spaces in posts here in AT. If you want the numbers one and two separated by 10 spaces, you would need to use another character:
1..........2
1xxxxxxxxxx2
1__________2

You can go back to your original post and edit it to make it look like the version in your notepad document.

BTW, I believe Etteilla first created this spread.

Thanx for the tip. Should look right now. as far as who created it I honestly have no idea. Found this at school. one of the few books on tarot in the library at UNM. Apparently most of their occult section was depleated due to theft.

Does anyone else think that this spread looks like a goats head?

I never thought of that actually, but now that you mention it...kinda creepy.
Is this one familiar to anyone besides rodney? Any experience?
