Yes/No And Timing, What do You Abide By?

Recommended Posts

t\Two things I don't believe there are any standing rules for. I've decided over the years, to decide what I believe and stand by it with consistency, then I have guidelines for my readings. 

 

If the card action faces left, it is the past, action faces right, happening in the future. Dead on, timing not knowable.

 

I haven't see any fun in doing yes no questions, purely my own years of experience, but I just did an experiment based on years of card knowledge and was surprised at how well yes no was shown to me.

Based on recent questions, I figured why not use the same questions allowing me no bias.

Am I alive? 6 of Coins. Yes. I can grasp give and take, plenty and lack. If not alive I wouldn't have that ability.

Am I woman? King of Coins. Yes. I am anything and everything. Gender is always a choice. 

Am I 35? Moon. Yes. I am all ages and any ages and ageless. As is the  moon. 

 

Once again, I am in awe, at what can be pulled from the cards if I chose to accept them

I thank them for today's lesson. 

 

What are your consistants you rely on?

Somehow I have had very little success with yes/no readings, and I have tried both one card and 3 card spreads. Some 3 cards spreads have even got me excited to an extent as to what best could I hope for, and the eventual outcome is the just opposite. Just my thoughts. Am sure I still didnt answer your question.

@Albadawn was refining her yes/no process here a year ago and it is the one I use most of the time.  Her thread is here:

 

She concluded that swords is no, pentacles are probably not, cups are probably yes and wands are yes.  This technique does not use the majors at all.  I also use the sun card as an overriding yes, even if you have no cards, the sun will always be a yes and the moon will always be a no; no matter what the other cards are.  When I'm doing reversals in a deck, reversed cards are no and upright cards are yes.  Matter of fact, if I'm doing straight yes and no questions I will use a playing card deck because it has no majors.  Between all of these techniques I am happy with the results they produce.

Yes this method taught to me by @Saturn Celeste has been a bit effective but am yet to fully practice the same and get a good grip on it 🙂

For me, this is simple. You don't want to look at some of my others. 🙄

 

I don't think it's any more complicated than the old one that Mary Greer has posted on her blog, the one that uses the Wheel of Fortune as the "pointer" card and has a couple of  steps to it.

I've stopped by your site often in the past few years!  I also jest a lot.  But I admire people who see complexity in not only the tarot but all things. :classic_love:

Barleywine’s blog is one to subscribe to. It’s always interesting and never derivative. 

 

It is strange, but I’ve always considered answering yes/no questions with the tarot easier than the Belline, tarot persan, et cetera. 

 

The tirage-en-croix and la petite question both give yes/no with the trumps. I’d include the horseshoe and Celtic Cross, too. 

 

Pip cards are easy - the last number card gives the answer (coupe = yes; deniers = likely; bâton = unlikely; épée = no).
