How do you use them?
The most common way I’ve seen Elemental Dignities used is in triplets. The reader lays out three cards. The center card is the main card and the two flanking cards affect the middle card. I’ve also read that EDs are said to affect cards that “near” other cards in a spread, although I’ve never seen that in action nor have I been able to make sense of that application in my own readings.
I recently learned, from a student of mine, Merissa Lovett, of a very clever technique. She also lays down three cards. The first one is the main card. The second card influences the first. The third card shows how to reconcile the first two.
