“Knights’ Crossing” – The Marginal Significator

In an earlier post in this series I discussed how to deal with a floating Significator or topic card that appears in the bottom row of the 9x4 layout, such that there aren't enough cards left in the deck to populate a nine-card square surrounding it. The worst case occurs when it lands in the … Continue reading “Knights’ Crossing” – The Marginal Significator

“Knights’ Crossing” Example Reading #3: The 2019 “Troutlook”

I decided to do … Continue reading Paired-Deck Reading #2: An Old Acquaintance

Since he isn't likely to face a Republican challenger for the Party's nomination, I decided to focus this reading on Trump's chances to win re-election as shown by  his current credibility with the same constituencies I used for the Democratic candidates. In broad terms, none of this looks very promising for Mr. Trump, although he … Continue reading Donald Trump’s 2020 “Electability Profile” Reading
