A “Breaking the Chain” Example Reading

This turned out to be a provocative and entertaining spread in actual use. For the topic I chose to examine the causal chain for my admitted "sweet tooth," especially around the holiday season. I purposely selected the Empress as the "Root Card" for my dietary indiscretion: "It's not nice to say 'No' to Mother Nature!"). … Continue reading A “Breaking the Chain” Example Reading

“Breaking the Chain” Cause-and-Effect Spread

This is the spread I promised yesterday; it is built on the assumption that the sitter can best decide (based on the subconscious "hunches" that most of us harbor) which time-frame should be explored first in determining why present circumstances are the way they are and what might be done about them. Since our behavior … Continue reading “Breaking the Chain” Cause-and-Effect Spread

An “Envelope of the Year” Example Reading

This is a practice reading using my new "Envelope of the Year" Life-Reading Spread; the querent here is an imaginary male sitter and the full-year layout was used with the Waite-Smith Centennial Pocket Edition, including reversals. In doing this for myself I will probably go month-by-month and do a series of weekly readings for each … Continue reading An “Envelope of the Year” Example Reading

The “Envelope of the Year” Life-Reading Spread

The new year is almost upon us, so I created another "annual look-ahead" spread that can be taken in 3-card monthly bites or in one giant 36-card, 12-month gulp. The spread uses an "envelope" concept in which each monthly three-card column has a "steady-state" card and two transitory scenarios, one "best-case" and the other "worst-case." … Continue reading The “Envelope of the Year” Life-Reading Spread

Mike’s Moment? An Impressionistic Follow-up

I have been asked to consider whether additional information regarding the whereabouts of missing Manchester, NH man Mike McClain might be obtained from another reading. I don't like to keep asking the same question repeatedly when no further information about the case has been forthcoming from official channels, but I just experimented with a similar … Continue reading Mike’s Moment? An Impressionistic Follow-up

What Happened to Tre? – A Missing Person Reading

UPDATE: On December 5, the body of Tre Rouse was discovered inside his vehicle submerged in the Merrimack River in Hooksett, NH. This was something he had apparently been threatening to do before his November 15 disappearance. This reading obviously goes into the "failure" column as far as predictive accuracy. https://patch.com/new-hampshire/concord-nh/missing-pembroke-man-found-inside-suv-merrimack-river-update Original Post: On November … Continue reading What Happened to Tre? – A Missing Person Reading

Recombinant Trumps: Lovers and Tower

This pair presents what might be considered a "turnaround" of the previous one since the trump cards swap position from top to bottom and left to right: where before the Tower and the Lovers were subsidiary counterparts to the Chariot and the Devil, respectively, here they are the primary trumps. The Lovers now appears to … Continue reading Recombinant Trumps: Lovers and Tower
