Using the deck on your own:

Creating a Spread 

◆ The Asker asks the deck a question aloud.

◆ The Reader repeats the Asker’s question and shuffles the 51-card deck with the Asker’s question in mind. (You are both the Asker and the Reader if you use the cards alone.)

◆ The Reader places the shuffled cards facedown in a stack.

◆ The Asker cuts the cards by removing a random amount from the top portion of the stacked deck and placing it facedown on either side of the remaining stack.

◆ The Reader places the remaining bottom portion of the stack on top of the top portion the Asker has just removed. This makes the bottom portion the new top of the stack.

◆ The Reader draws the top card from the stack and places it face-up in front of the Asker. This card represents: how things probably appear. The Reader always reminds the Asker that the way things appear or are perceived to be are not always the way they actually are.

◆ The Reader then draws the next card from the stack (the new top card) and places it face up in front of the Asker to the right of the first card drawn. This second card represents: what the Asker may be feeling. The Reader always reminds the Asker that the card may represent feelings that are currently buried or hidden.

◆ The Reader then draws the next card from the stack (the new top card) and places it face up in front of the Asker to the right of the second card drawn. This third card represents: how things likely are at this moment. The Reader always reminds the Asker that this card’s message is only true for this moment, because things can change based on new actions or choices made.

Another Way to Use the Cards

◆ The Asker can choose a One Card Reading. This reading is based on using a single card to answer the Asker’s question. After the question is asked aloud, the deck is shuffled, cut, and reassembled just as in the 3-card spread. Then the Asker turns over and interprets only the top card.

Reading the Cards  

◆ The Asker can choose an Intuitive Reading. This reading is based solely on initial gut instinct or existing psychic abilities. The Reader interprets what they think each of the images on the cards in the spread represents in relation to the Asker’s question. The Reader is interpreting the cards’ answer to the Asker’s question.

◆ The Asker can choose a Chance Choice Reading. This reading is based on the roll of the dice. The Reader rolls a 6-sided die to determine which of the statements listed in the Reflection Guide (above), for each of the cards in the 3-card reading spread, represent each card’s messages to the Asker. The Reader is determining, by chance, the cards’ answer to the Asker’s question.

◆ The Asker can choose a Reflection Resonance Reading. This reading based on Reflection Guide exploration. The Reader reads aloud the statements in the Reflection Guide, for each of the cards in the 3-card reading spread, and then asks the Asker to select which statement resonates most strongly, to determine the cards’ answer to the Asker’s question.

◆ The Asker can choose to have a Cooperative Reading. This reading is based on group input. Everyone present takes a turn interpreting what each of the images on the cards in the spread mean.

◆ The Asker can choose a Consensus Reading. This reading is based on group agreement. Everyone present takes a turn interpreting what the images on the cards in the spread mean (a Collaborative Reading) and then as a group determines which of the interpretations they agree represents the cards’ answer to the Asker’s question.

◆ The Asker can choose a One Card Reading. This reading is based on using a single card to answer the Asker’s question. After the question is asked aloud, the deck is shuffled, cut, and reassembled just as in the 3-card spread. Then the Asker turns over and interprets only the top card.

The purpose of reading the cards is to obtain insight about situations and choices in your life.

A reading may help you to: more fully notice something you already know, reflect more deeply about what matters to you; or uncover what is underneath particular actions or feelings.ding 2

Creating a spread can provide a framework for seeking guidance or reflecting on choices you have or will make in your life.
