Relationship Spread #2

 

This is a specified relationship spread that uses 9 cards to analyze where a romantic relationship is at and where it is headed. The first card shows where it is at now, and can be considered the significator. The second and third cards determine where your partner stands and how it relates to where you are at personally.

Above the stem, the 3-card base of the layout, a cup forms. Cards #4 and #5 show each person's desires, meaning what they want to get out of their coupling. Above this, Cards #6 and #7 show the challenge that this pairing presents to each individual. The final 2 cards at the top form the rim of the cup, symbolic of the taste of the relationship to each person, which shows how things will turn out on each side of the pairing.
