This is the page where you can compose a layout of your own, with up to 22 specific cards that you have picked from one of the more modern decks such as the Ancestral Path, Goddess, Haindl, Spiral, Universal Waite, Whimsical and other decks. You can also add a 'descriptor' for each card such as "Significator," "Central Card" or "Crossing Card" If you are not familiar with using this and the following pages, please read the Instructions before composing your layout, so that you can use this facility to the best advantage (e.g image resizing, drag-and-drop, overlaying etc.) - you can return to this page by clicking on the "This reading provided by..." link at the very top of the final page.

On this "Compose Your Own Spread" page, you specify exactly which cards are to be displayed in a spread. If you want to choose cards from one of these decks (without knowing what the cards are), or leave the choice to "chance," use "this page" page.

To compose your own layout and spread, choose from the first set of options below and click the Continue button to go to the next page. (Combinations of the last two options and what they will produce, are shown after the Continue button).
