The block of 9 is an easy Layout to learn if you remember the following basics:
- column 1- passing influence
- column 2 (center)- current situation
- column 3 – near future depending what time frame you assign
The cards are read by rows as well and 2 diagonal lines which form an ‘x’ from the Lady or Gentleman card in the center of Column 2 and Row 2.
You don’t have to use a significator if you’d rather just deal out 9 cards in the block. Each card is woven to the one preceding and following it when the trios are read.
The card which falls in the spot which would have been the Lady of Gentleman will be of great significance and the reading will revolve around it to some degree.
In the image below I used LADY to represent a female who is confused about her life direction and is in desperate need of some practical goals to work towards.
