Creative Tarot: While the Death card does not mean the obvious—you are totally going to die this week (unless you forward this tarot card to seven friends in the next twenty-four hours)—it is an ending. Death has a tendency to show up at the end of relationships, the end of jobs, anytime you transition into a new identity or stage of life. It has shown up once or twice for my clients right before weddings, which tends to freak out the brides. But, I point out, your life as a single woman is dying, and a new way of being is beginning, so the card is appropriate. Just not the cheeriest of messengers.

Complete Book of Tarot: The decision to use elemental dignities depends on the personality of the tarot reader. Some enjoy this kind of systematic quasi-mathematical reasoning when reading the cards; others find it burdensome and prefer to read intuitively. It’s a matter of taste and preference.

Tarot Triumphs: I feel lucky to have witnessed this, and I draw on it now to illustrate what practical, traditional fortune-telling with the Tarot may be like at its best. It shows us how a reading can be set up, very simply and even in public if need be, to give an answer to a question in a relatively short space of time. The Tarot reader here was receptive to the cards and her clients, and there was nothing hard or mercenary about her manner. It was, to my eyes, genuine divination rather than a mechanical, rote reading, and yet it needed to deliver; the old lady did the job that she was asked to do, giving an answer to the question as best she could, and concluding the transaction with goodwill.
