How to Read Tarot Without a Deck (part 2)

…Because of this, I can easily do a reading without a deck. The cards come to me as an auditory message—I “hear” the card titles read to me as if over the phone, and then I form the image of them in my mind’s eye. For some odd reason, I often get the cards as their playing card equivalents. For instance, here is a sample of a 3-card reading:

The original message using playing card titles:
Ace of Clubs — 3 of Diamonds — Knight of Spades

Which translates to:
Ace of Wands — 3 of Pentacles — Knight of Swords

Looking up the equivalent cards in my deck (you can use this book or The Tarot of Creativity deck), I get:

Ace of Fire (The SPARK of life) — 3 of Earth (EXPLORE/CULTIVATE ) — Knight of Air (ENGAGE)

The words naturally form a sentence that becomes a reading:


The Summation Reading
Adding these numbers together gives us the summation reading: 1 + 3 + 12 = 16, which reduces to 7.

The Tower (16) or The Chariot (7). The Chariot in The Tarot of Creativity is titled Adventure. The summation card advises me see the path forward as an adventure.
