The Career Horseshoe Spread

This spread is excellent for a thorough analysis of a specific Career question or situation.

Firstly, the subject clearly expresses the question, eg "Should I take the new job I've been offered?". A Significator is chosen to represent the subject or situation, and laid in position 0. The remaining cards are then shuffled by the dealer or subject, cut three times by the subject and laid in the following order:

1. Past
Those factors in the past which are having an ongoing effect on the situation in question. It can also signify past factors (such as study or work experience) the subject may have forgotten about, which could be better utilised to further their career.

2. Present Situation
Current factors which are known and obvious - the current state of the subject's career, at least on a surface level.

3. Positives
Those factors which are best about the situation in question. The "pros".

4. Negatives
Those factors which are worst about the situation in question. The "cons".

5. House
The influence of colleagues, management, and others with whom the subject has professional dealings. Could also indicate financial considerations.

6. Action
The best path to take in order to further the subject's best interests in the matter.

7. Outcome
This is the most important card in the layout. It indicates the final result if the path shown above is followed - "the future", if you will.
