To my shock I had forgotten to say in this group that not all the spreads in the lesson of the Hermit were required as homework. That meant that all in all they had pulled at least forty cards, maybe more. In all groups there were people who had done that, but that was because they had time and energy, not because they thought it was required. Luckily the group did not mind very much.
Two of the participants -friends- had done something interesting. They had answered all the positions of a spread with one card. To their surprise it worked well and it broadened their perspective on the card they had pulled immensely; they saw many more details on the card.
