This advanced Tarot spread is inspired by years of reading the 9 Square intuitively, observing patterns and listening to the whispers of the cards themselves. In the past few months, I have felt a need to add two cards to the square when doing love Tarot readings… and then one day the penny dropped: each of the card positions correspond to Major Arcana 1-11, with the Hierophant as the central card and Justice as the outcome.

The Mary-El Tarot is a deck with so much oomph, I wouldn’t hesitate to call it ‘Tarot dynamite.’ Looking for a quick fix? This ain’t it! The Mary-El demands that you dig deep and look your Shadow straight in the eyes.

I thought I would give it a go…
My favourite in-depth relationship spread is the Heart of the Relationship spread I created a while back but after giving the Relationship Spread by Nikki Mackay from the book Tarot for Understanding Love and Relationship Patterns (also available on Kindle), I now have another useful spread for doing in-depth relationship readings.
The layout is clear and I like the symmetry of it. The shape of a spread is important to me – it has to make sense and the energy has to flow in the right way (hard to explain!). Placing the unconscious fears/challenges cards sideways to form an obstacle to the flow of energy makes a lot of of sense. I also like the ‘How he/she saw her/him when they first met’ positions, as they can be used to verify the truth of the reading.
Gain insights into the dynamics of your relationship and help your relationship grow with this in-depth ‘Heart of the Relationship’ spread!
When you order the in-depth relationship reading, I add an angel card at the centre of the spread to see what the message from Spirit might be for the relationship. Feel free to skip this step or to use another type of oracle/tarot deck for further advice or insights.
