Just adding to the list of 3 cards. I've been using:

1) Do
2) Don't
3) Consider/think about this

as a general advice sort of thing. And it's worked pretty well, too!

I was wondering if you could use this for tarot cards too?

And also, do you have to go by the "Tarot Rules"?

I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. Could you perhaps rephrase your question? (Sorry if I'm being a bit slow)

Again, I'm not entirely sure what you mean. I think the actual point of this thread is that you should feel free to decide for yourself what each of the positions in a 3-card spread mean for your reading. I really don't think you'll find many people on these forums insisting that there are specific rules everyone has to follow in regards to their tarot practice. What I've really gotten from reading these forums is that people should feel free to adopt whatever techniques and practices work for them.

Hope that helps at least a little, and feel free to clarify your questions if I've missed the mark completely!

Cheers! :-)

Forget it lol

I asked because I use these in my daily Oracle readings.

But I just realized it said "Tarot spreads".

I was a bit buzzed when I asked that.

Sorry if it didn't make any sense.
