The Newton Spread - Tarot Layout

This is the Newton Spread with the classic Gumppenberg Tarot of 1835.

Here the positions of the Newton spread in short - for an explanation of the spread see the original page.

Newton Spread Layout

Cards 1 and 2 stand for the First Law of Motion:
1 = The Inertia
2 = The moving force

Cards 3, 4 and 5 stand for the Second Law of Motion (F=ma)
3 = The Power
4 = The Mass
5 = The Acceleration

Cards 6 and 7 stand for the Third Law of Motion
6 = action (or force)
7 = reaction (or opposing force)

When using the '2-birds-system', the position of the seven cards are like in the model aside.
None of the birds must be on any of the marked positions, so it may take a while until you have your mix done.

Of course, when you choose the sort-out system, you just shuffle until there are seven cards left - no matter on what position..

Now you can display your cards here.

As you see, the cards in the Shuffle Window have their numbers on their backs, so it is easy to choose the right ones from the dropdown lists. Just take care you have them in the right order.
The cards have the same names here as those of the Thoth deck so a 'c-pre' will turn out to be the 'Caval di Coppe' while 'c-k' will turn out the King and the 'prs' (Princesses) all are 'Fan' now. But the cards are all in their right places, I just saved the effort to write a completely new shuffle script.
