A 3-Card “Twist” Example Reading & Walk-through

I tried out this spread by asking "What is the advice for tomorrow?" The first picture below shows how the draw progressed within the overall pattern. I didn't deal all of the face-down cards, just the three face-up ones, but I thought it would be useful to put in placeholders showing the flow of the … Continue reading A 3-Card “Twist” Example Reading & Walk-through

A “Good Days/Bad Days” Weekly Forecast Example Reading

To test the spread I posted yesterday, here is my weekly forecast for the seven-day period beginning June 1, 2020. I used the RWS Centennial pocket edition, with reversals. Monday and Sunday look like days of opportunity in practical (Ace of Pentacles) and intellectual (Ace of Swords) pursuits. I'm going trout fishing with my brother … Continue reading A “Good Days/Bad Days” Weekly Forecast Example Reading

Lunar Month Look-ahead for May-June, 2020

Here is my monthly lunar forecast for May-June of 2020. This spread is designed around astrologer Dane Rudhyar’s eight-phase “lunation cycle,” during which each sub-phase lasts approximately 3.5 days. I used the Moon Phase Calendar website to easily identify the approximate dates of the phase changes. I always use reversals with this spread. The deck … Continue reading Lunar Month Look-ahead for May-June, 2020

A “Motivational Extremes” Example Reading

I performed a reading to test my new "Motivational Extremes" problem-solving approach. The question I asked was how best to cope with the emotional distress caused by the extended societal lock-down and stay-at-home expectations stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. (We haven't been able to see our young grandchildren for a couple of months.) I used … Continue reading A “Motivational Extremes” Example Reading

A “Perfect Storm” Relationship Reading

To test my "Perfect Storm" new-relationship spread, I decided to look at what the complexion of the US Congress will be after the 2020 elections. For the Significator cards, I used the Rorig Tarot (Spanish Edition) with the Caballero (King) de Espadas for the Republican contingent and the Caballero (King) de Copas for the Democrats. … Continue reading A “Perfect Storm” Relationship Reading

Thoughts on Face-to-Face Reading

In this age of instantaneous electronic communication, there are tarot readers who may never experience the stimulation (and, yes, the trepidation) of reading the cards for other people in a face-to-face setting. Usually it's a lack of confidence rather than limited opportunity that keeps them chained to remote situations where they never get to test … Continue reading Thoughts on Face-to-Face Reading

Stepping Back: A “Roll Them Bones” Situational-Awareness Reading

I decided that, as of today, I will be backing off from publicly posting on the status of certain missing-person cases in New Hampshire because of the volatility of the issue, especially if criminal activity is suspected. (I will continue working on "cold cases" and less provocative scenarios.) Although I've been careful about maintaining discretion … Continue reading Stepping Back: A “Roll Them Bones” Situational-Awareness Reading
