The “Fickle Finger of Fate” Needs-Fulfillment Spread

Sometimes all we really want to know is “How will my day go?” but the single-card pull and even the 3-card “past/present/future” line seem just a little short on substance (which for me is most of the time). Here’s a slightly more involved way to get a deeper look at the situation that brings in the ideas of “wants-vs-needs” and the “hand-of-fate” unpredictability of life. I acknowledge that you can use the “quintessence” approach to derive the outcome card for more significant questions, but in many (if not most) routine matters it can feel like “swatting a fly with a sledgehammer.” As I said in the spread notes, it may be best to “save the ‘As above, so below’ stuff for a bigger fish-fry.”
