    I'm just wondering about people's opions on this, if so which is your favourite and why?

    I think that prescribed spreads can help people when they begin to read, as the position of the cards offers a different aspect of meaning to them.

    I use different spreads based on the intuition I get during the reading, so I often don't know what the spread will look like when I start, but along the way, I may get the feeling to take a card to represent an obstacle that is significant etc.

    I always found the spreads confused things in the early days but I can also see now that they can be helpful, do you have a favourite spread?

    For Tarot, spreads are very important, for other cards not so much.

    The spread should be chosen with care, before the cards are laid.

    What do you mean by a prescribed spread?

    Hi Violet, I tend to use my intuition when creating a spread, so the spread may be different each time.

    Crystal, I mean specific shapes of spread, ie that are in books about tarot etc.
