 Begin exploring your spread and its meaning by studying the meanings associated with each card in its specific house.

After you have studied the meanings of the cards in their specific houses, it is time to look for groups of like cards. Review your cards to see if there are any touching each other to form groups. Cards may be touching top and bottom, side to side or corner to corner.

First check for groups of the same suit. If there are six cards of the same suit touching you can expect a noticeable change, seven cards an even stronger effect and if eight cards are touching a very strong impact.

Now check for more defined groups of cards, cards of the same denomination i.e. 4 Kings, 3 Sevens. If two of the same card are touching them amplify the respective definition of those two cards. If there are three cards the meanings are even stronger and if there are four, even stronger still. Additionally if there are three or four cards in a grouping they signify a particular event forthcoming in your future.
