The Love Triangle Layout

The Love Triangle Layout

 

 

Difficulty:  Somewhat Complicated

 

This layout can be used to determine the dynamics of the relationship between 3 people, whether or not romance is involved. This layout is drawn in the form of a hexagram, consisting of several large and small triangles. This layout is somewhat complicated, but only because of the complicated nature of this type of relationship.

The first step is to interpret the rune for each individual position in the layout. Generally the querent asks about a relationship that he or she is involved with, but this does not have to be the case. Ordinarily the querent's representative rune is #1, the querent's person of interest is #2, and the other person would be #3.

The second step fills in the downward triangle and involves further examination of the individuals through their views of the other people. Each person has 2 more runes showing the way they see and relate to the other members of the triangle. For example, Rune #6 shows how Person #3 relates to Person #1, while Rune #9 shows Person #1's attitude toward Person #3.

The next step completes the upward triangle and the hexagram, focusing on runes 10-13. It also completes the many smaller triangles and shows the potential for each relationship. The final rune, #13 can be considered the significator of the reading, which shows the overall potential for this 3-way relationship.
