Reading a spread
When reading a spread, is it recommended to read the card as the base and then the planets and their Avasthas in that card?
I have 10 of Hearts as the Mercury card with Rahu, Sun starved and Venus in mixed Avasthas in it. Mercury itself is starved in the Moon card and the Moon is Proud. So, should we be reading the base as a period of greatest fulfillment but only if we are cognizant of and take care of the Avasthas?
Yes, read the card base first as the foundation, then read the avasthas to see how fulfilling or not the situation will be.
