A Domino-and-Cards Example Reading: House Sale

To test this spread I chose a real-life situation in which acquaintances have just started the process of trying to sell their current house and move to a bigger one. The deck here is the RWS Centennial Edition in a Tin (copyright U.S. Games, Stamford, CT, used by permission) that I shuffled to introduce random … Continue reading A Domino-and-Cards Example Reading: House Sale

A “Temporal Focus” Example Reading: Roe vs Wade

I'm going to preface my interpretation by saying that on one hand I'm a small-government "Libertarian sympathizer" and a firm believer in "States' Rights" as originally intended by the framers of the Constitution, while on the other hand (at least in the purely mystical sense of the soul's delayed entry into the body, which doesn't … Continue reading A “Temporal Focus” Example Reading: Roe vs Wade

A “Psychometric” Yes-or-No Reading Approach

The dilemma of how to handle "yes-or-no" questions (or whether to even attempt answering them) is one that all tarot readers must confront sooner or later. I've tried numerous ways, both simple and complicated, to solve the problem and a few years ago I created a table of what I dubbed "Yes-Leaning," "No-Leaning" and "Maybe" … Continue reading A “Psychometric” Yes-or-No Reading Approach

“And the Winner Is . . .” – 2022 “Run for the Roses”

UPDATE: It turned out that the only thing accurate about this reading was that Epicenter would make a strong showing. The problem was that I limited the population of likely winners to horses with short odds, and the actual winner, Rich Strike, was a long shot at 80-1 and one of the least likely contenders. … Continue reading “And the Winner Is . . .” – 2022 “Run for the Roses”

Missing Person Case Closure: “Dewey” Poulin

Back in 2018 when I had just begun working on missing-person cases, I tackled the disappearance of Dwain "Dewey" Poulin from Tamworth, NH. Today while browsing a local news feed I found an article from February of this year noting that his remains (which were discovered in Ossipee, NH in 2020) had finally been identified. … Continue reading Missing Person Case Closure: “Dewey” Poulin

A “Knowledge & Wisdom Ledger” Example Reading

Here is a reading I did to test this spread. I didn't have a specific question in mind beyond curiosity over what my proposed initiative to push my tarot-reading practice into the corporate sector (still only a notion, not an actual plan) will mean for my future. Overall, this is a very encouraging reading for … Continue reading A “Knowledge & Wisdom Ledger” Example Reading

The”Holistic Well-Being” Example Reading: A Personal Wellness Blueprint

I originally created an example reading based on an existing medical crisis (not mine) but caught myself trying to massage the meaning of the cards to fit the circumstances, so I scrapped it and started over. This time I strove to come up with a personal "wellness blueprint" capturing my present and future state of … Continue reading The”Holistic Well-Being” Example Reading: A Personal Wellness Blueprint

An “Affirmation and Negation” Life-Path Example Reading

To test this spread and its associated table, I performed an example reading using the Retro Thoth deck. I've been contemplating a business venture as a tarot reader for corporate management, so I chose the Knight of Wands as the "Heart of the Matter." On the "Affirmation" side of the spread, the Ace of Swords … Continue reading An “Affirmation and Negation” Life-Path Example Reading
