The 4-card Centred Triangle spread reading


As promised here is the 4-card Centred Triangle spread reading. I am at the same point of study with the Rainring system as those of you that are studying the cards. So far, we have covered 26 of the 85 cards. As you can see in the image there are cards (Contact:Hope /Deflation) we have not studied. I will add my thoughts on the cards based on the website’s write up and whatever impression I get from studying the image within the card.

The question is about a relationship between a man and woman. Is there a problem between them and if so, what is it? The question can be about any relationship.

The top card BALANCE (apex). This spot can reveal the nature of the problem within the relationship. Questions are not usually asked about relationships unless there is a problem on some level. The problem can be multi-layered.

BALANCE (top card) :ARROW: TORPOR: The feeling I get from this card is that the relationship has come to the point of fatigue. Perhaps the man and woman are tired of it the way it is at the current time. Someone is bored. The couple is missing the zest within the relationship they once had.

FEMALE (lower left card) :ARROW: RELATION: This spot of the layout reveals the female energy at play.  It seems there is more interaction coming from the woman. She might be giving more to the relationship than the man. She could also be connected to many other people in her life and he is not such a great priority.

MALE (lower right card) :ARROW: CONTACT:HOPE. We have not studied this card. It would reveal the male energy in connection to the man-woman relationship. We already know the couple is at the TORPOR point.  He has not given up on the relationship.

The next two cards from Rainring website:

Contact : Hope
intervention from without or within enables one to feel that a desirable or bearable outcome is possible; the illustration on the card- Intuition: sensing the inner nature of things, being in touch with the intangible; hunch, presentiment

RESULT (middle card) :DEFLATION: Interesting indeed! The middle card is the summary of the issue(s) between the man and woman regarding the relationship. What a great image. 🙂 Looks like the man is at the mercy of the woman. He should tread lightly. Or, the man needs to come down from his ego platform and experience some of the things the woman does.

a pin-prick to the balloon of the ego! self-image collapses

Hope you enjoyed today’s post. It was good practice. The only way you can really get acquainted with the cards is to try them out in a reading. The reading need not be complex using umpteen cards. This simple 4-card Centred Triangle spread is perfect. The above interpretation is my view of reading the cards and my view is not your view. Do try it out!

  1. Hi Seaqueen,
    It’s nice when a reading comprises really straightforward cards and no furious head-scratching is required! As those of you who have looked at the whole of the Rainring cards will have realised, Rainring is not just a collection of cards thrown together somewhat randomly according to what ‘felt’ right at the time.
    One of the fundamental principles on which Rainring is based is that of three energies operating within a matrix, and this spread demonstrates that set-up. The female energy at left is assoiated above all with emotion; the male energy at right is more to do with thought; the apex energy represents the balance point, with the heart (green) energy sitting midway between male and female. Parents and child would typify this scenario. These three energies play out within a common matrix, so that the result card at centre shows what we get when male, female, male and balance energies are combined – for example, th ‘vibe’ in a given family.
    Finally, female and male is NOT about persons, but energies. A same-sex couple will equally be based on a tension between male and female energies. In the same way, there are plenty of heterosexual couples with a mannish woman partnered by a feminine-type guy. Or again, the current British prime minister is an obvious example of a male-sided woman.

    Perhaps one further remark is in order: Rainring is concerned to promote the badly-needed strengthening in the psyche of the female vis-a-vis the male energy. Nevertheless,this is absolutely not the same as favouring persons of female gender at the expense of males. The all-important question is invariably: what is the quality of the energy? Small children, for example, are deep in the female side of the psyche. Whenever we have controlling, repressive parental behaviours based on ‘strict’ principles, moulding, making all kinds of demands, shamimg, de-naturing and crushing the spontaneous, wild, anarchic, unpredictable being of the small child, we have the male side energy hitting on the female side.
    [Yes, I’m exaggerating, but perhaps far less than some of you would care to admit!]

    We began with a typical ‘him’ and ‘her’ scenario; we end with something of a very much wider scope. This is what Rainring is about – Janet and John, certainly, but much, much more!
