Princess Presentation

With Tarot, the question of specificity comes up over and over again. Too often readings only contain generic advice that doesn’t actually suggest an appropriate action to take. So, how can you cook up meaty, helpful fortunes instead of empty fluff? This is the point where I suggest that you throw out the handbook and that keyword dictionary. For the true key is to assign meanings of your own to the cards. Create stories for the characters on the cards and apply those stories to real life.

For instance, I have designated the Princesses of my deck to be the communicators. Books, letters, speeches, meetings… This is their domain. Their appearance, then, suggests that such events may take place in the future. How did I arrive at this interpretation? Most of them are holding letters, the signs of written correspondence. So if I ask “what can I look forward to this week?” and a Princess appears, I know that writing or something similar will occupy my time.
