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

I've been an avid fly-fisherman for most of my life, and was of the "catch-and-release" persuasion long before the US Border Patrol co-opted the phrase, although my targets are native and not immigrant. Hmm, come to think of it, both rainbow and brown trout are "introduced" species in my region, so there are parallels, but … Continue reading “Knights’ Crossing” Example Reading #3: The 2019 “Troutlook”

Paired-Deck Reading #2: An Old Acquaintance

As I envisioned, the pocket-size Centennial Edition of the RWS "in a tin" is the perfect companion for Pixie's Astounding Lenormand in two-deck readings. The latter was adapted  by Edmund Zebrowski from Pamela Colman Smith's artwork, so there is an agreeable consistency in the images, and the size is roughly equivalent.

I used a five-card line to explore the question … Continue reading More Lenormand Line-Play: The “Floating” Topic Card

Here's a more radical mingling of tarot and Lenormand decks in a single reading. Rather then mixing the two decks together or creating a separate chain or division in the spread for each type of deck, I scatter the cards between two different lines by  rolling a single die to come up with an odd … Continue reading The “Mongrel’s Mash-up” Mixed-Media Decision Making Spread

A “Counting Round” Example Reading

Rather than doing a new reading to test my ideas on card-counting with my "Knights' Crossing" spread, I decided to apply them to the "Mueller's Madness" reading I did yesterday. The five-card line derived from the 3x3 square was Book-Man-Mice-Clover-Fish, which I would read as "The individual who is the subject of the report (Book+Man) … Continue reading A “Counting Round” Example Reading
