This reading system explores wishes. Human needs are divided into four groups of varying importance. A card is drawn for each of the groups, giving clues how to fulfill this type of desire.
The spread is well suited for self-examination. The most important answer is not fortune telling, but the personal reaction to it. It is about the thoughts that shoot through your head when you look at the cards you have placed.
Meaning of the positions
This is about those things that are absolutely necessary for life. This is above all housing and food in an appropriate form, but also security from the forces of nature or harmful people. This need is the basis for everything. If it cannot be fulfilled, all other wishes are also endangered.
At this position of the spread the contact to other people is in the focus. This can be superficial gossip or the exchange of opinions. The main concern is not to be alone and to have someone to talk or feel close to.
At this point, we look at the desire for extravagance and opulence. Many people are anxious about products and services that are exceptional or rare. Often it is also about differentiation from others through an exquisite lifestyle or showing a certain social belonging.
The free development of the personality is a very complex wish, which can alter over time and which must be fulfilled again and again. It is often about living the way you want, both privately and professionally. Mental growth can be striven for as well as earthly success or an exciting love life. The goal of self-realization is also the expansion of one's own abilities and their successful usage.
The reading is influenced by Maslow's pyramid of needs, a theory that identifies different types of human desires and classifies them according to their importance.
The spread used here has simplified Maslow's model a bit. After all, it is not about socio-psychological studies, but rather an approach to the question what is really important to you and how this can be achieved.
