The Vitruvian Square | A Slice of Life (Part 1)

Life is a dream for the wise, a game for the fool, a comedy for the rich, a tragedy for the poor.

– Sholom Aleichem

Here is a video I put together for you that easily explains one of my favorite and most powerful ways to use The Vitruvian Square Casting Cloth! The really beautiful feature of this technique is that it is insanely hands-on and downright fun. Further, the person you are working with (even if you’re doing a reading for yourself) is providing the structure of the reading by the placement of specific items in specific locations on the Vitruvian matrix.

The person who is getting the reading, then, is actually the one who projects the design that your analysis will travel and sets in motion what will ultimately be said. I believe you will find that this is a truly effective projective technique that can be used with just about anything your own imagination contrives.

Enjoy the video. Next week, I will be posting specific meanings and associations to consider in using this technique, together with some nuances to take your reading skills to the next level.

    • Jason – The real power of this technique is that there are no rules. If your spectator wants to use feel/insight that’s terrific. If they want to use the words or images on the cloth, that’s great, too. By the way, you’ve stumbled on to a very intense was of adding to your reading; namely, watching “how” they make their choices and using that in your reading, as well. In fact, the way your spectator makes their choice is indicative of the way they make choices everyday. Stay observant and use all that you see!

  1. I really like this, Scott. Thank you for sharing it. The idea of using the chess pieces is intriguing. I’ll be wracking my brain to see if I can come up with my own objects, maybe something that can be given to the querant when the reading is done.

    Regarding Jason’s comments, I’m wondering if it might provide some insight into the querant’s mind if what the various objects represent be explained before they make their choices. That said, I like the unconscious intuitiveness of choosing ‘blind’.

    I’m looking forward to the next post. Happy holidays!

    • Shad – I am so glad you liked this. This is really powerful stuff – as you will come to learn. You can certainly let your Querent know the “meanings” ahead of time. However, I find that the “bind” choice is much more telling and effective. Keep me posted on your successes with this method. All my best. – Scott
