The point of this spread is to use the deck as the calendar that it, in fact, is. The deck has 52 cards - a lunar year has 52 weeks. It also has 4 suits, just like the year has 4 seasons, Each suit has 13 cards - each season, 13 weeks. Therefore, each card of the deck represents one week. These are some of the many correspondences between the calendar and a deck of playing cards. If you would like to read more about this, I highly recommend Ana Cortez's article on the subject.
The purpose of the Cat Spread is to find within the range of one year when what the sitter asked is more likely to happen. Or when something of significance related to the sitter's question will happen. And the cards show how it'll (or won't) happen. Why one year only? Because the deck is a one year calendar, so it cannot see beyond that. It can only see up to 52 weeks from the present.
So, i did this reading to know if she would find a partner within the next year.
The timing was seven lunar months and two weeks from the date of the reading (which happened last weekend). So the reading is indicating, approximately, the second week of September.
"September???", my sitter cried. "That's almost an year from now!"
I told her that she's welcome to challenge this reading, for not everything is written on stone. What most of readings show is a tendency, change your present path and you may also change the outcome of the situation.
These were the card for her reading:
Head (♦/Fire): 4♦
Throat (♣/Air): 11♣
Torso (♥/Water): 6♠
Feet (♠/Earth): 13♥
