Symbolic Triptych: A Past/Present/Future Life-Reading Snapshot

This spread is an oddity for me in that it only has three cards. But I wanted to play around with geometric symbolism and someone asked me for a small-spread recommendation. The square represents stability in past circumstances (even if only in the sense that they aren’t going to change) and perfectly symbolizes the “Foundation” of the matter in question. The circle shows a stage of “Inspiration” that can generate motivation and incentive in the present, thus encouraging stepping forward with confidence into the final phase: the “Projection” of the triangle into the future. (Of course, difficult cards can yield the opposite effect, as will reversals in most cases.) I created position meanings that draw their inspiration from the timeline portion of the Celtic Cross.
