Hi Beth! I daren't form an opinion on (a) someone else's reading, I'm too much of a beginner, or (b) someone else's love life! So i won't! But I just want to comment how interested I am in the way you choose to lay the cards out and tell what each position is about. I'm learning a lot from comparing all the different approaches and this one I understand.
If looking through a selection in books, I don't find a spread that seems to want to be used for the question I have, What I tend to do is make up a spread before I begin and (usually on paper) decide what the positions represent. I often throw one in that is 'unexpected' or 'random' or at its vaguest 'the Other Things card', but I'm not confident to just put cards down and then after that think about what they're about. So I'm wondering if when you say, 'I tend to let the cards decide how they want to be placed', you mean that you really don't decide at all until you have drawn a card and need to put it down, or whether you consider that while shuffling, or before you begin at all. Or something else?
... And I know I said I can't say, but it comes to me strongly that IF this man were to break up with the other person, and come to you, then it would be very important that things not start up between you two while he's still on the rebound. I'm NOT saying he will or may become single, just that stepping straight from one to the other wouldn't work – even though you and he would probably feel as if it wasn't a beginning but a continuation because the groundwork is already laid. I hope you see what I mean there, and I hope you don't mind me sticking my oar in; you're free to ignore me!
I don't yet know what I think on the question of reading for/about other people, but perhaps (I'm asking the forum, here!) some question could be asked about whether he is withdrawing / staying aloof – safe among all that sea – because of admirable self-control, or fear, or apathy?
