The “Tip of the Iceberg” Mixed-Media Problem-Solving Spread

I've been meaning for some time to try my hand at creating spreads that use both cards and dominoes in developing the reading layout. Here is my first attempt focused on problem-solving scenarios. It is essentially a doubled five-card path from an opening "current situation" perspective to a closing  "future consequences" projection that has a … Continue reading The “Tip of the Iceberg” Mixed-Media Problem-Solving Spread

The “AC/DC” Dual-Current Conflict Resolution Spread

Here is some more fun with dice and cards. It assumes that odd numbers are "active" and resolute in their function while even numbers are "passive" and vulnerable to lapsing into discord due to insufficient momentum or mixed feelings about the outcome. One path shows uneventful progress toward a clearly-marked destination while the other presents … Continue reading The “AC/DC” Dual-Current Conflict Resolution Spread

Random Numbers: An Alternate Approach to Remote Reading

As I've mentioned before, when approached to do remote readings I prefer to have clients pull their own cards and e-mail me a list in the order drawn.  Shuffling and cutting the cards myself for a distant sitter can introduce subconscious "reader's bias" and potentially hijack the focus of the reading. I believe that reading … Continue reading Random Numbers: An Alternate Approach to Remote Reading

What Happened to April? – A Physical Status and Location Snapshot

Since there has been nothing new in the media on the whereabouts of April Bailey, who disappeared in mid-January, I decided to pursue two additional readings to further explore her fate. The first is intended to ascertain in blunt terms whether she is still alive, and uses the Albano-Waite RWS deck without reversals, and the … Continue reading What Happened to April? – A Physical Status and Location Snapshot

Dark Horse Rising? – A “Stirring the Pot” Example Reading

As the subject of my test case for this spread, I chose the campaign of Amy Klobuchar for the Democratic Presidential nomination. As a "small-government" Libertarian sympathizer, I have no use for career politicians of any persuasion, Democrat or Republican (and particularly not Religious Right or Socialist), but I will at least listen to those … Continue reading Dark Horse Rising? – A “Stirring the Pot” Example Reading

“Stirring the Pot” – A Developmental Insight and Action Spread

Here is another split-deck decision-making spread. It formalizes the involvement of other people who may have a stake in the matter, whether to aid, obstruct or take advantage of the seeker. This is accomplished by separating the court cards from the deck and dealing them into specific positions reflecting the above possibilities. Human beings are … Continue reading “Stirring the Pot” – A Developmental Insight and Action Spread

Where Is April? – A Horary “No-Go”

The missing-person case of April Bailey continues to intrigue me, so I thought I would cast a horary astrology chart to see if it reveals anything unusual that wasn't reflected in my previous tarot reading. But I never really got started because I ran into two of what are called "strictures against judgement" that render … Continue reading Where Is April? – A Horary “No-Go”
