Using the concept of Houses from an astrological chart for not only its inspiration but also its shape and content, this is a fun spread to use on birthdays or at other milestone events. It is a simple one to interpret, as you simply go around the circle reading each card separately. Each position represents an astrological “house.” Each house governs an area of a person’s life. You can add depth to the reading by comparing houses that have cards sharing the same suit or number.
