The New Deck Interview spread is a 6-card spread that can be used when you acquire a new deck to learn its personality and how to best work with it.  You can lay the cards out in any order that you like.  There are several variations, but the positional meanings that I stick to are as follows.

  1. Tell me about yourself.  What is your most important characteristic?
  2. What are your strengths as a deck?
  3. What are your limits as a deck?
  4. What do you bring to the table?  What lessons can you teach me?
  5. How can I best learn from and collaborate with you?
  6. What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?
