A widely-held conviction among modern tarot readers is that there are no categorically “good” or “bad” cards in the deck, therefore no single card can give a “yes” or “no” answer via a one-card pull. I often quote James Wanless, who said “There are no negative cards, only opportunities.” As a working hypothesis, this seems to hold water.
However, when learning the Lenormand system of cartomancy, it becomes obvious that there are cards that are unabashedly positive, negative or neutral. Since I read tarot mainly in a situational and developmental rather than psychological way, much the same way I read Lenormand, I decided to make my own cut at the relative “goodness” or “badness” of each card (at least within the context of the question) as it might stand alone for the purpose of a “yes-or-no” query. I slipped the paradigm just a bit toward “yes-leaning,” “no-leaning” and “maybe” instead of absolutes, but the objective remains intact.
