IMPORTANT FACTORS OF SUCCESSFUL CARD READING

It is clear, that the main symbolical meaning of each card must considered, but only as a basis of further interpretation. Professional and Quick Reference Card Reading take into account several important factors:

* General Meaning of the Whole Spread

* Personal Information

* Cards of the Same Value or Suit

* Position and Neighbor Cards

* Comments (the Explanation of Your Interpretation)

* Notes

General Meaning of the Whole Spread

The general (positive or negative, strong or weak) meaning of the whole combination. Regard it as a peculiar coefficient; the predicted events must be multiplied or divided by it.

* Positive overall combination means that your own inner or some outer forces protect you, and you are able to deal with the most serious problems on your own. You are at the height of your opportunities; therefore, this period is favorable for creative activity.

* Negative combination is not a final judgment. The cards are just telling you that you ought to be more careful, to slow down and concentrate on the recovery of your spiritual and physical balance. A weak or unfavorable reading often means only habitual flow of your life without troubles or drastic changes. Possibly, the negative nature of the reading is caused by your tiredness and exhaustion owing to daily routine.

Personal Information

Your gender, age, marital status is also very important for fortune telling. The specific meanings of cards are directly related to these characteristics. Make sure that the personal information (you enter it on the main toolbar of CArTomancy) is correct. Even a small disparity in years is sometimes significant for accurate interpretation.

Cards of the Same Value or Suit

The presence of a certain number of cards with the same value or suit in your spread.

At the beginning of both Professional and Quick Reference Card Reading, you will see if such combinations are present in the current spread.

Interpret the separate cards in your reading in the light of the above- mentioned �same value or suit� combinations.

For example, the presence of four aces and four tens (business success) may reflect the general impact of your job on your life. In other words, there is a strong possibility that even a new romantic acquaintance will be bound up with your professional activity.

Position and Neighbor Cards

Another significant factor is the position of a card in the current combination and what cards are its �neighbors� (surrounding, preceding and following it in the process of card reading.)

Sometimes the mere presence of a certain card, along with the card in question, in your combination matters, even if they are not �neighbors.�

Comments

In the text of your interpretation, inside parentheses and asterisks (**), you can find comments, explaining the reasons for a particular piece of your interpretation. E.g. (*Position: Upper left corner*) means that the following sentence(s) (till the next comments) is valid only because the current card is located in the upper left corner of the spread.

Notes

* In most cases, the specific meanings of cards (in the final text of the reading) are determined by a whole series of causes, influencing the result.

* These factors also have different priorities, some of which are much more significant than the rest.

* Just as the way a good fortune-teller tries to choose the most essential information from the numerous combinations of cards in your reading, CArTomancy also analyzes the most important and urgent events in your life (of course, if they show themselves through the cards).

* Therefore, do not be surprised when practically identical combinations suddenly result in quite different interpretations, and utterly diverse combinations entail �twin� readings. It is OK.

* From the outset, CArTomancy is directed towards your, not somebody else�s personality. The mere generalization is useless, because each person is individuality.

* That is why you should not expect finished formulas. Nobody, especially cards, can take decisions instead of you. Do not take card reading as an indisputable prophecy. It is rather a collection of dotted lines, outlining the main trends in your personal development and your life.

* Let CArTomancy be like a mirror, allowing you to reconsider yourself and your setting, a reference point of further analysis.

PROS AND CONS OF PROFESSIONAL CARD READING

If you wish to consult with the cards before taking an important decision, you would better choose Professional Card Reading. Its interpretations are not as concrete and clear, as those of Quick Reference Card Reading, but here is its main advantage. Professional Reading better reflects the general power balance in your life and stimulates your creative and analytical abilities.

The main disadvantage of Professional Card Reading is somewhat fuzzy analysis of personalities (both yours and other people�s). Not all predicted qualities have to be certainly present in a particular person. You have to pick out the most essential qualities yourself. When you want to identify real people, hiding behind symbolical characters in your reading, do not direct your attention to some specific features. You ought to see the �mood,� general picture.

Technical Details

The following picture shows the order in which the cards are drawn from the deck during Professional Card Reading. The order of cards interpretation is the same. E. g. if a card number is 4, then the previous card number is 3 and the next card number is 5 correspondingly. Each card is situated in a special position (e. g. "Upper Left Corner", "Center" in the whole spread). The position is often mentioned in the comments and is very important for card reading in general.

Dealing Cards

Choosing the Significator

The Significator is the central and most important card in the spread, representing you. All other cards are interpreted in relation to the Significator.

Shuffle the deck. After that reveal each triplet of cards, one after another, until you find the card representing you. Pay attention to the meanings of other two cards in this triplet. They are related to your present circumstances.

General Rules for Choosing the Significator

 ------------------------------------------------------------------
|          |         young or middle aged         |                |
| You are: |--------------------------------------|    elderly     |
|          | single            | married          |                |
 ------------------------------------------------------------------
| female   | Queen of Diamonds | Queen of Hearts  | Queen of Clubs |
 ------------------------------------------------------------------
| male     | King of Diamonds  | King of Hearts   | King of Clubs  |
 ------------------------------------------------------------------

Put the Significator on the table and shuffle the deck again.

Dealing the Cards

Drawing and Interpreting the Under Heart Card

Now ask yourself the question "What will happen?"(or similar) in your mind and randomly draw one card from the deck. Put it under the Significator, "Under Your Heart". This card tells you what is the most important for your heart. While interpreting this card, use the general cards interpretation as well as some special meanings:

Picture-card � A person who thinks of you or remembers you.
Any Jack � Bustle and cares.
Queen of Spades � Boredom and depression.
Ten or Eight of Spades � You are anxious about somebody's illness or indisposition.
Seven of Spades � Troubles.
Six of Spades � A loss or disappearance.

Ace of Clubs � A failure in business.
Ace of Diamonds � A letter.
Ace of Hearts � A parcel or a piece of news.
Nine or Ten of Diamonds � A receipt of money.
Nine or Ten of Hearts � Great joy lies ahead of you.

Dealing the Rest of the Cards

Do not shuffle the deck. Put the deck above your card (the Significator) and leave about a quarter of the deck there. Then put the deck below your card and also leave about a quarter of the deck there.

After that put the deck to the left of the Significator and to the right of it, leaving about a quarter of the deck everywhere.

Then take the pile above your card and put the two upper cards above the Significator, face up. Take the second pile (below your card) and put it on the first pile (in your hand). Take the two upper cards from the new combined pile and put them beneath the Significator. Repeat that for the left and the right piles.

Do not shuffle the deck. Now take each upper pair of cards from the rest of the deck (successively) and put them to

* the upper left corner

* the bottom left corner

* the upper right corner

* the bottom right corner

Thus now there are 16 cards around the Significator.

Shuffle the rest of the cards. Discard the three upper cards, put the fourth card on the Significator ("On Your Heart"). Repeat this till the end of the deck. Now there should be four cards on the Significator.

ONE CARD

Should you desire a quick answer to your question, simply draw one card to give an overall impression of your problem.

This method is also suitable for finding out how your day is going to go. If you, for instance, draw a Diamonds card, it indicates that issues to do with hard work and affairs outside the home will be important that day, if you draw a Hearts card, issues to do with emotions and the home are going to be important, if you draw a Clubs card issues to do with business and money will important, and if you draw a Spades card problems and difficulties will be important.

You can draw an additional card to clarify the first card, if you find it necessary. Spreads which include more cards naturally give a more detailed reading.



THREE CARD SPREAD

To get a quick answer/overview to a single question/issue, lay out three cards in a row from left to right.

1 2 3

The cards represent the past, the present and the future (from left to right).



NINE CARD SPREAD

The Three Card Spread can be extended to a Nine Card Spread using three cards for the past (top row), three cards for the present (middle row) and three cards for the future (bottom row).

1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9

In this reading, the central card is pivotal. With this spread, you can read the cards diagonally as well.
