|First, I "shuffle" my deck by cutting it into several |
small piles. Then . . .
|I re-stack my deck. The deck will be cut into four piles,|
starting at the top, holding the query and the essence of
Air or the East in mind as I cut. I let my fingers find a
niche along the side of my deck to determine each cut.
|Here is the first pile representing Air/East. I cut this pile|
again to determine the card that best represents the
Element/Direction at this moment.
|Returning to the original pile, the deck is cut again for|
Fire/South. Again cutting the small pile to determine
|And here is the pile and cut for Water/West.|
|Yet again for Earth/North.|
|The entire deck has been cut into four piles and cut again|
to find the card for each quarter. Starting from the right and
moving clockwise, we have Air/East, Fire/South,
Water/West and Earth/North.
|I have now laid out the top cards from each|
Elemental/Directional pile and re-stacked the deck
so I can . . .
|cut the deck one last time to determine Spirit/Center.|
|The completed layout.|
