The Mountain Stream

So named because a mountain stream often switches channels while still flowing down the hillside, the Spread of the Mountain Stream is used to assess where a situation is going and what changes should be made or avoided to favor the best outcome. The single timeline branches into three lines, each of which can show a different message and a different possible future.

  1. The distant past, the foundation of the matter and also the reasons why it is so important now.
  2. The recent past, and any recent events which have served to set events in motions
  3. The state of the situation at the time of the reading
  4. Can reflect the present state or show what kind of changes are currently taking place.
  5. The short-term future of the situation, if nothing changes.
  6. The long-term future of the situation, if nothing changes
  7. A possibility for change, another option that can be taken.
  8. The long-term future of the situation, if the change that is described by #7 is made.
  9. A second possibility for change
  10. The long-term future of the situation, if the change that is described by #9 is made.

A variation of this spread involves removing cards 1, 6, 8, and 10 for a shorter and more localized spread. This is useful when you’re more concerned with short-term than long-term effects.
