Yup, still positive feedbacks still positive even if its from morons...
As it happens Ive started padlling in the pool of ROTAs recently, its strange Ive always been pretty, well, not doubtful, but more unsure of Tarot. But Ive been using them for a few months now, and the results are really quite amazing, the practice seems to enhance all sorts of things you wouldnt expect.... still dont know all the divinatory meanings though.

That's cool that you're paddling about. The divinatory meanings are the least of it anyway, Maxwell. It's a great meditation tool, among many other things - and what I like about the tarot is you're never done studying it. There's always something new to learn. Another new insight into the human psyche.

PS: When I started, I wrote the a couple of keywords on each card. It's the easiest way to learn the meanings.

Im paddling with the Thoth deck, and each card has a one word definition... i.e. the eight of cups = indolence.
One question though. In readings for other people how do you judge time?

Time is a tough one.

Here's the system I use:
Wands=days
Cups=weeks
Swords=months
Pentacles=years

I simply look at the numerical value of the first upright minor arcana card.
Ace of cups, for instance, would equal 1 week. So I would tell the client that they can expect whatever it is to happen within 1 weeks time.

Have you seen the "Tarot Workbook"? It was designed for use with the Thoth deck and I use it constantly even though I read with a different deck.

Welcome, Maxwell.

I misspoke the name of the book, though. It's "The Tarot Handbook" by
Angeles Arrien. It presents the tarot as a tool for mapping the unconscious mind and also ties it into the system of numerology. Offers tons of valuable information.

Sound good, when money permits the purchase will be made.
Thats my main point of interest, the Tarot apart fom the obvious archytype understanding can (I think) be used as a path working tool, sort of invocation of different elements of the self... its the best mirror Ive found so far.
Once again thanks for the input.

Anytime.

What you just described is the best possible use one can make of tarot cards. The divinatory aspect, while the most popular with the masses, is the lesser aspect by far.
