I tried the five-card, one-card-from-each-color method. First I simply chose at random from each color, which is a good method if you don't have a specific question. For my next reading, I had a specific question, and I went through each color and picked what seemed to me to be relevant cards, one from each color, and that too worked well.
For the last year or so I've been doing a lot of no-spread readings, looking for relationships between the cards to create lines of meaning. But I like solidly spread-based readings too, and this is a great way to do it without falling back into the rut of the same-old, same-old spreads. I really recommend this deck as a way to make things more varied and interesting.
I like the book because it appeals to different kinds of reading styles, from tradition-bound to completely freeform, with a range of suggestions in between.
Nicely done, Tierney!
Well, I never did make them for myself and I kept checking them out. Know your limits. They are great fun to use and very effective at creating a spread which deals with a specific issue. There a small number of blank cards to which you yourself can assign meaning (get a small post-it-notes pad and a good marker) if you need to. The accompanying book is very thorough in its explanation of all you can do with the cards and is worth a read through. The author is CLEARLY very psyched about her cards, which is funny and endearing and nice. Plus, they merit the enthusiasm.
The cards are nicely over-sized to show the label when placed below traditionally sized cards. I wouldn't have minded if they were just a touch bigger to accommodate larger decks but that's not a criticism of the deck, just an aesthetic preference.
This is a lovely tool for help creating spreads overall, or for those readings when someone is just a little unsure of what they want to ask. I sometimes select cards to make my own spread, but as often as not, I draw randomly to see what information is most needed. The cards work well either way and my clients do like having them included in email sessions for reference.
It is very clear that typical spread positions were well-researched as they are very well represented. There are a few blank cards in each topical group that are suggested to be used with sticky notes for your own positions.
As far as what could be improved...there could be more blank cards, so that you could either write your positions permanently or perhaps coated sto use a dry erase marker on them instead of suggested sticky notes. If I wanted write spread positions on sticky notes, the blank cards aren't really a "value add" in that case. The companion book won't have much to offer experienced readers but would probably be useful to the novice.
All in all, I get a lot of use out of this deck and like it a lot. Thanks, Tierney!
