The Secret Qabalah of Liber AL vel Legis
There is a hidden Tree of Life schemata in Aleister Crowley's Book of the Law (Liber AL). This wall-chart expounds its essential elements. The scheme was discovered by me in circa 1987. I self-published a somewhat rough eBook in the year 2000 called Liber Peh which contains this information. Now, in 2016, I'm inspired to summarize it in this wall-chart.

Two of Cups & Three of Swords
Based on my own practical experience of the Tarot, the Two of Cups and the Three of Swords can be interpreted as complementary opposites.
The Two of Cups often comes up when two people meet each other for the first time and there's an immediate strong mutual attraction. It represents pure heart-felt desire that conforms to no fixed boundaries, limiting mental conditioning, or belief systems, or established social conventions, or 'morality'. It comes straight from the heart and knows no bounds. And therein lies a potential challenge.
The challenge is whether or not the two individuals' mundane circumstances, conditioned personal mind-sets, and social positions are able to accommodate the development of an intimate 'relationship'. If not there may be great frustration and sadness.
The Three of Swords emphasizes the purely mundane elements of a relationship. When it comes up in a reading there is the chance that a separation will occur because of the mundane aspects surrounding the relationship. For example, the two people might discover that they have very different belief systems, or ideas about 'relationships', or that their lifestyles are incompatible. In cases such as these, if the relationship is to survive it must resolve the mental or physical conflicts and therefore evolve into a new mundane form.
Note: Sometimes, but not always, the Three of Swords reversed represents a couple getting back together after a separation.

Ten of Wands
In my practical experience, and this differs to the conventional interpretation of the card, the Ten of Wands represents a "road-block" or "boom-gate" that stands in the way of you accomplishing a goal. The good news is that the "road-block" is only temporary and is eventually removed so that further progress towards the goal can be made.
If the card is reversed it means that the "boom-gate" is being raised so that you can continue to move forward.
An example: A client was in process of completing a bridging course that would then allow them to be accepted into university for a degree course. The bridging course was a necessary prerequisite for the degree that they dearly wanted to do.
This meaning seems to be related to the card's astrological correspondence of Saturn in Sagittarius.
Another example: A person is required to spend some time in prison in order to learn how to behave acceptably in society. If the Ten of Wands is reversed it means that they are about to be released from their confinement.
Another good example of the mundane meaning of the Ten of Wands occurred in a tarot reading I did yesterday (9-Sep-2015). The Ten of Wands was tabled and it turned out that the client was trying to sell a property she owned, but before she could sell it she had to have the plumbing fixed/replaced which is quite a big job. This is another good example of how the Ten of Wands often represents the necessary preliminary work that has to be done before we are able to move forward and accomplish the main goal.

The Linear LayoutI've found that the simple "linear layout" is a wonderful tool for reading the tarot. It's the layout that I use most often in my tarot readings.
It consists of a simple open-ended row of tarot-cards. If the table space is too small then I bend the row of cards around as needed.
There is no consistent number of cards tabled during a linear layout. I stop putting down cards when the meaning starts to get foggy. I believe the reason for this fogginess is that the further into the future you go the less certain things become. The near future is easier to predict because decisions have already been made and a train of events has been set in motion. But the far future depends on many variables that the client has no knowledge of yet because certain events haven't occurred. So it's important to stop tabling cards and end the layout when you reach that "fogginess point".
The cards in the linear layout correspond to a sequence of events, but some of the cards at the beginning of the layout might represent events that have already occurred, and that are therefore in the past. It's important to determine where the client is at present in the card sequence. This is usually fairly easy to determine by questioning the client.
One of the benefits of doing linear layouts for yourself is that once you have determined where you are presently located in the layout then you can follow the remaining sequence of events as they occur into the future. And this means that you may not need to perform follow-up readings about the same question.
Determining the timing of events is also possible when you use the linear layout. Simply count where a particular event-card occurs in the linear sequence of cards and that number gives you a clue to the timing of the event. The number might represent days, weeks, or months, or a day of a month.
For example, if the Queen of Cups turns up in the 8th place then the woman she represents may appear in 8 days, or 8 weeks, or 8 months, or the 8th of a month.

Radian AspectsThere are six radian aspects that you can test and experiment with...
1Radian = 57.29577951308233 (approx. 2 signs)
= 57° 17' 44.80625"
2Radian = 114.59155902616466 (approx. 3 signs)
= 114° 35' 29.61249"
3Radian = 171.88733853924699 (approx. 5 signs)
= 171° 53' 14.41874"
4Radian = 229.18311805232932 (approx. 7 signs)
= 229° 10' 59.22499"
5Radian = 286.47889756541165 (approx. 9 signs)
= 286° 28' 44.03124"
6Radian = 343.77467707849398 (approx. 11 signs)
= 343° 46' 28.83748"
[Important: These aspects are all measured anti-clockwise from the position of the natal planet... that is, in the direction of the normal order of the 12 Zodiacal Signs.]
[Note that: 7^3 = 343 (7 cubed). This numeric correspondence simply highlights the interesting relationship that exists between the 360° circle, the radian spiral, and the key number 7.]
Only six radians fit within the 360° circle. The seventh radian takes us into the second arc of the radian spiral...
7Radian = 401.07045659157631
= 401° 4' 13.64373"
The radian aspects are based on an infinite spiral form rather than a closed 360° circle... like the standard astrological aspects are. They are experimental, so have fun experimenting with them!
