The Horoscope spread is one of the most effective, comprehensive spreads out there! But it's complicated, so I'd suggest you work your way up to this. Once you're ready, I'd suggest using the question & layer technique for each of the Houses. Take your time & be patient with yourself! OK, so the spread is comprised of 13 cards (or positions). Each one of the positions indicates one of the 12 astrological houses, except for the 13th, which is a summary card. In Part 1, we'll look at the first six Astrological Houses & what they mean.
