Apocalyptic's Tri Relationship Spread total 9 cards.

Apocalyptic (Wen from SG club) created this spread. It is to find out about the relationship between 2 persons when 1 of the party is not around. It is an exploration spread which gives very detailed insight into relationships. I remember most of what he had taught me,

Note to Apocalyptic: If you want to correct me in my telling of the spread, please do.

The lay of cards as the above picture is as follows. I used the Dragon Tarot, which is my birthday present from my disciple Sky Neo

CENTRE GROUP first

Card 1 is the card in the centre of the centre group of three cards.
(8 of wands) This represents what the relationship has emerged as. (present) As 8 of wands is swiftness and fast passion, it would mean in this case, a very strong and fast relationship, but without very strong depth to it.

Card 2 is the card on the bottom left of the centre group of three cards.
(7 of wands) This card represents what has lead to this relationship as it's current state. (cause)
As 7 of wands, it means though the relationship is short, there were many many challenges and with each challenge the relationship grew better.

Card 3 is the card on the bottom right of the centre group of three cards.
(6 of wands) This card represents what direction would the relationship turn into (effect)
As 6 of wands, it means victory or great success. It would also mean that the relationship would benefit both parties.

BOTTOM LEFT GROUP 2nd NEGATIVE PART of the relationship

Card 4 is the card in the centre of the bottom left group of three cards.

Generally, i feel the spread gives very very strong insight to relationships and do gives suggestions and guidance for how a relationship could be improved. However, i suggest to add one more card to the spread to make it more complete. card in the centre as a general outcome. because lots of people like to know an outcome.

No offense to the creator of course. Thank you Wen for sharing this Spread with me.

The spread is spot on, but the credit goes to a friend of mine for the spread.

He taught it to me, and I taught it to you.
