Timing #Tarot Tricks

Do you use timing in your Tarot readings? It can be difficult sometimes to pin things down. Here is one way to look at this.

The suits can be seen as seasons of the year. Typically, Wands represent spring because they are the suit of the East for many. The East is about youth and new ideas. Wands are also the fastest suit so they can be seen as days. You would use the numbers of the suit to determine the exact day. For instance the 6 of Wands in answer to when something was going to happen would be six days.

This is the energy of air. Swords are the the suit of the South or Summer in this system. They represent passion and energy. This suit represents weeks rather than days. The 3 of Swords here would mean your answer was coming within three weeks. This is the energy of fire.

Months can be seen in the suit of the west which is also the season of Autumn. Emotions can take a bit longer to process so here we have months for the timing. Court cards are also numbered so here the King of Cups would represent fourteen months. This is the energy of water.

That leaves Winter and North to the suit of Pentacles. It is a much slower energy. It stands for years in this timing table. The Page of Earth would mean 11 years. This is the energy of earth.

The deck used is the Crystal Visions Tarot which is coming soon from U.S. Games Systems Inc.

Reversals: Turning the #Tarot Upside Down

How do you read reversals? Let's take some cards and see what some meanings might be.  From Monday's Guess The Deck, here is the 2 of Ghosts reversed. You may see this referred to as Rx or Rev.

Halloween2GhostsRx

Some ways to view a reversal are:

 

  • The opposite of the meaning of the card
  • A lessening of the meaning of the card
  • A shadow side of the meaning of the card

In this deck, the suit of Ghosts is the suit of Cups. So this is the card of partnership and love.

Opposite meaning: A break up

Lessening of the meaning: He's not that into you

Shadow side: There's another person in between you and she

What are some of your ways to read a reversal? What would you say if this card came up in your reading?   Does it matter where the snakes and cat are in this reversal?

A film about Hermann Haindl – #Tarot part 1

Here is the first of three videos about Hermann Haindl. It is in German so if you speak the language and could translate, we non-German speakers would appreciate it.

The Haindl Tarot was published by U.S. Games in 1990.

I’ll post the next two this week. Part 2 will be here on Wednesday and part 3 will appear on Friday.

Do you use the Haindl Tarot? What is your favorite part of this video?
