The “Hold ‘Em or Fold ‘Em” Gambler’s Option Spread

Here’s a fun spread that makes use of Joseph Maxwell’s numerological approach to odd-numbered and even-numbered cards; the former actively seek change leading to equilibrium , while the latter strive to maintain the present balance. In decision-making space, the two extremes spell the difference between an aggressive approach to the solution and a more passive wait-and-see attitude. The spread employs a poker-player’s motif to name the various decision-making steps in the process. Only the 40 minor suit cards are used in the draw; a fifth “quintessence” (outcome) card is derived from the Major Arcana for each competing line in the spread.
