Awhile back I developed a _Deck Test_ -- a 3-card reading (partly in fun) for insight into how well I can expect to work with a new deck. One of my recent acquisitions is the Dreaming Way Tarot by Rome Choi and Kwon Shina (U.S. Games Systems). Let's see what the potential is for our partnership.
Here is the spread:
(1) Drawn from Pips only
On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being "absolutely fabulous" and 1 being "truly awful"), how does my ability to work with this deck rate as of right now?
(2) Drawn from Court Cards only
What personality trait(s) do I need to cultivate if I want to be able to work better with this deck in the future?
(3) Drawn from Majors only
How likely is it that I will be able to do amazing, awesome, astonishingly accurate readings with this deck?
Trumps 0-6 = not very likely
Trumps 7-14 = somewhat likely
Trumps 15-21 = very likely
Results for the Dreaming Way Tarot:
(1) THREE OF PENTACLES
Oh dear. Apparently there is room for improvement on this one! I love that the LWB entry for this card includes the keyphrase "competent but not expert." I also love that this is one of the cards from this deck that puzzles me, mostly because it doesn't seem to "connect" with the traditional RWS image of the 3 of Pentacles. And there you go -- improvement in my ability to work with this deck is needed! Maybe I need to put a paper bag on top of my head...
(2) QUEEN OF WANDS
Well, that makes sense. I will need to demonstrate determination, hard work, passion, and confidence if I want to work better with this deck in the future. I love that the Queen of Wands is one of my significator cards.
(3) JUDGMENT (Trump 20)
Phew! Looks like if I heed the messages of the preceding cards, I am "very likely" to do amazing, astonishingly accurate readings with this deck!
