I've used the first step of that (the four-pack cut & find the significator) for quite a few years as a preliminary to the Celtic Cross that is my mainstay spread. I find that it can give an advance feel for what the reading will cover. Recently I've started doing the counting and pairing steps of the first operation but don't have a lot of experience with it yet. I doubt I will move on to the two astrological spreads, the Tree of Life spread and the 36-card "circle" spread that form the rest of the operations, since they get very elaborate.

RE: Opening of the key spread
RE: New Member Welcome!
Hi all! I've been reading with the Thoth deck since 1972 and am also an astrologer and geomancer. I'm exploring a few of the newer decks now but don't think any of them will replace Thoth. Presently I'm using the Haindl Tarot for daily draws and the Shining Tribe for my "spirit meditation" draw. Soon I will be getting the Well-Worn Path (pagan oracle deck), the Deviant Moon Tarot and probably the Tao Tarot since I also work with the I Ching. My "tarot mantra" is: "No vampires (or vampyres), no animals, no faeries," but the Tarot of the Sidhe sure looks tempting.
