Playing Cards

Look at Predominant Suit

  • Predominant Hearts - concern is emotional
  • Predominant Diamonds - concern is material
  • Predominant Clubs - concern is for achievement and recognition
  • Predominant Spades - concern is antagonistic or for power without responsibility
If the reading does not require a Significator card, make a mental note of the Significator card which would represent the Questioner. If that card shows up in the reading, it takes on special significance.

If the Joker was not intended to be included in the deck, but shows up in a reading, do not replace it, but read the card as a special message to the Questioner. The Joker usually means that there is a surprise in store for the Questioner. A situation which was thought to be stable, may suddenly become unstable.

If timing is involved, read the cards as follows:

  • Diamonds - Spring
  • Clubs - Summer
  • Hearts - Autumn
  • Spades - Winter
  • Aces - Week at the beginning of the season.
  • Kings - The matter was completed last year at this time.
  • Queens - The matter was completed last season.
e.g. - Ace of diamonds would be the first week of the Spring Equinox
