Is anyone here still interested - should I continue listing my combinations, or no? Honesty is quite ok(LOL), if the idea isn't a good one, just say no...

love,
Kara

Talking Keep posting Kara


Keep posting Kara
there are new members all the time and sometimes take a while to stumble into this area, me for example. I did not know others have this deck. i have a deck from Switzerland. Booklet by S.R Kaplan the pictures are reproductions of the original set that Mlle. Lenormande used.so the booklet says. i think the pictures were reproduced by AGMuller. In my little booklet it only gives something that looks like the gypsy spread.you choose the gentleman as the querent or the lady.there is specific spot you place them in the spread and read around them, the closer the cards are to the querent the more significant. i have only ever used this and am self taught through the booklet and personal experience. it is nice to see others are interested and am reading everything and taking note of what you put here. Keep going!!

Reading Cards Near/Far - Titania


Ooh, an old discussion on my first-ever deck of cards....the ones that brought me to Aeclectic Tarot. How could I have missed all of this? I've got a bit to share so I thought it best if I break it down into individual posts about topics that have been posted.

Titania doesn't place the emphasis on the man or woman as a "significator". The man or woman can represent different people and does not necessarily reflect yoursElf so it doesn't really matter that much where they fall in the spread in terms of how they relate to you, they need to be read in context with the surrounding cards. Like for example, if the man/woman card is with the dog, it is most probably a male/female friend. Or, with the child, it can be a man/woman with children. With the lily or fish, it could be a man/woman at your work. Of course, all of these combinations may be yoursElf - like a woman with the lily may be yoursElf in a situation at work. I guess it takes practice to discern who the man/woman represents.

I find that Titania does place the emphasis on the combination of the cards and how close the cards are to each other.

Like for example, if you have a nine-card spread, you read them in sentences, left to right, then in columns, then diagonally.

1, 2, 3
4, 5, 6
7, 8, 9

So you read cards 1-2-3, then 4-5-6, then 7-8-9, then 1-4-7, then 2-5-8, then 3-6-9, then 1-5-9 and 3-5-7.

Let's say you have drawn the scythe as card 2, and the coffin as card 7. Usually this combination would indicate death. However, in this case, when card combinations appear in the nine-card spread but are not in the same row/column then, you would not look at the combination meaning, but instead go with the individual card meaning.

I remember participating in a discussion on AT about the clouds and which way they were facing (in terms of being their darkest) because that was supposed to add weight to the surrounding cards. And also, the mouse, was it facing away or toward you - as it could be seen as an indication of whether the trouble was coming or passing out of your life. I guess I tend to look at the surrounding cards to gauge this opinion and take less notice of the direction that the cards are facing.

with love
