Very interesting spread. I just tried it out and it worked brilliantly. Thank you for posting this.
It doesn't really matter whether the querent touches the cards or not - it's just a personal thing. In fact you don't even need the cards, or anything else, unless you feel better using something for 'focussing' with. The divination/magic is in you, not the objects you use.Moonson: i've read somewhere, that for one to "know" another person by the cards, that person must touch/shouffle them, in order to transfer their own energie into the cards.
