Q:  How do I know what the cards are trying to say.  Is there a guide I can use to know what they mean in general until I am more comfortable with them?

A:  There are general concepts that equate to specific cards. Most importantly though, listen to your intuition and look for patterns in your readings.  If you get drawn specific cards repeatedly when asking the same sort of questions, you may have your own associations that differ from these.

Ace cards tend to key into timing:

  • Wands: Autumn
  • Cups: Summer
  • Swords: Winter
  • Pentacles:Spring

 

Minor Numbers:

  • One: Beginnings
  • Two: Duality
  • Three: Self expression/ Communication
  • Four: Clarity, elements/directions/seasons
  • Five: instability, change
  • Six: Service, compassion
  • Seven: solitude, soul searching
  • Eight: abundance, influence
  • Nine: Wisdom through experience
  • Ten: Ending and Beginning
