The Romany Spread

This is a spread that uses 21 cards for a reading which you can interpret the past, present and future, and also details into other areas of your life.

There are at least two versions of this spread that I know of, and I’ll share one that I am familiar with which was one of the first spreads that I learned.

The Romany spread is great for using your intuition because it uses more than one card in an area of your life to “paint” a picture of that scenario.


The Romany Spread:

The Romany spread is separated into rows A-C (horizontally) and Columns 1-7 (vertically).

Row A (top horizontal row): Past (cards 1-4 are more distant past; cards 5-7 are more recent past)

Row B (middle horizontal row): Present

Row C: (bottom horizontal row): Future (cards 15-17 are more immediate future; cards 18-21 are more distant future)

Column 1: (cards 1, 8, 15) The Self

Column 2: (cards 2, 9, 16) Personal Environment

Column 3: (cards 3, 10, 17) Hopes & Dreams

Column 4: (cards 4, 11, 18)  Known Factors

Column 5: (cards 5, 12,19) Hidden Destiny

Column 6 (cards 6, 13, 20) Short Term Future

Column 7 (cards 7, 14, 21): Long Term Future

Row C, Column 6 and Column 7 are the future row and columns, which provide an opportunity to give insight into the future events with the other cards providing “back story” and guidance.

This spread can be good for doing general/overall readings or if a situation is more complex and has many factors that play a part in it.

The Romany spread can give a “picture” of events to clarify and make sense out of a situation. It can really help to get an overall sense and then analyze it closer.
