  1. The sequential method is a method of fortune-telling with tarot cards that is intended for the fortune-teller who would address certain specific questions concerning the past, the present, or the future by attempting to describe actions, circumstances, and events that may correspond to fact, whether at the time of a reading or subsequent thereto. When using the sequential method, which is intended for use with pattern sheets that are comparable to the Tarot de Marseille patterns, one is able to interpret coat or court cards with relative ease. Vocabulary Builder Adjectival Signification: a signification that is an adjective. Adverbial Signification: a signification that is an adverb. Empirical Signification: [fortune-telling with playing cards] a signification that is derived from the perceived significance of a playing card in a reading. Impersonal Signification: [fortune-telling with playing cards] a signification that links a tarot card to an abstract concept. Impersonal Significator: [fortune-telling with playing cards] a tarot card that is interpreted as denoting one or more abstract concepts. Nounal Signification: a signification that is a noun. Personal Signification: [fortune-telling with playing cards] a signification that links a tarot card to a person. Personal Significator: [fortune-telling with playing cards] a tarot card that is interpreted as signifying one or more persons. Signification: [fortune-telling with tarot cards] a keyword or a phrase that is assigned to a tarot card for the purpose of fortune-telling. Verbal Signification: a signification that is a verb. A note on the general procedure for the use of the sequential method: when using the sequential method, one arranges a variable number of cards in one or more rows and one generally attempts to pair consecutive cards by attempting to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the first card in a prospective pair to one or more of the adjectival significations of the second card in the prospective pair. Where one is unable to form a contextually relevant or logical phrase by doing so, one would attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the first card in the prospective pair to one or more of the nounal significations of the second card in the prospective pair. Where one is unable to form a contextually relevant or logical phrase by doing so, one would attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the first card in the prospective pair to one or more of the verbal significations of the second card in the prospective pair. For example, since the ace of coins is associated with the noun activity and since the ten of batons is associated with the adjectives captivating and habitual, one could interpret a pair that comprises the ace of coins preceding the ten of batons as denoting one or more captivating activities, as denoting one or more habitual activities, or as denoting one or more activities that are both captivating and habitual. 1. Additional Coat Cards Though one could apply the sequential method using the standard number of 16 coat cards per pack, one could enhance one’s tarot readings by purchasing two copies of one’s preferred tarot cards and transferring the knights and the jacks from one pack to the other so as to have each additional knight and jack serve as a female equivalent of the corresponding knight or jack. To avoid confusion, one could mark each additional knight and jack using a pen or a felt-tip marker. I hereinafter refer to each additional knight as a dame and to each additional jack as a maiden. 2. On the Position of an Impersonal Significator Relative to a Personal Significator 2.1. Where a personal significator precedes an impersonal significator, one could attempt to relate one or more of the verbal significations of the impersonal significator to one or more of the actions that are carried out by the person who is signified by the personal significator. For example, one could interpret a pair that comprises the king of batons as a personal significator preceding The Pope as denoting a male lover who asks, who devotes, or who trusts. Similarly, one could interpret a pair that comprises the king of batons as a personal significator preceding the queen of batons as an impersonal significator as denoting a male lover who expects, who gratifies, or who loves. 2.2. Where an impersonal significator precedes a personal significator, one could attempt to relate one or more of the verbal significations of the impersonal significator to one or more of the actions that are not carried out by the person who is signified by the personal significator. For example, one could interpret a pair that comprises The Pope preceding the king of batons as a personal significator as denoting a male lover who does not ask, who does not devote, or who does not trust. Similarly, one could interpret a pair that comprises the queen of batons as an impersonal significator preceding the king of batons as a personal significator as denoting a male lover who does not expect, who does not gratify, or who does not love. King of Swords (a Male Benefactor) [Note: most of the personal significations that I describe for the king of swords are empirical.] Concerning personal significations, the king of swords could signify: – Any male whose actions, influence, position, or resources benefit an enquirer (relative to the context of the enquiry). – Any male from whose actions, influence, position, or resources an enquirer expects to benefit (relative to the context of the enquiry). – Any male with whom an enquirer has a relationship that he or she deems as being beneficial. – Any male with whom an enquirer has a relationship that he or she values (regardless of whether the enquirer deems the relationship as being beneficial). – Any male with whom an enquirer has a relationship that he or she expects should be beneficial, but that may not be beneficial at the time of an enquiry. – Any male with whom an enquirer would like to have a relationship. For example, if an enquirer asked whether a male family member, a male friend, a male romantic partner, or a male neighbour would oblige some request, the king of swords could be interpreted as signifying the said family member, the said friend, the said romantic partner, or the said neighbour. Where the king of swords is the first card in a prospective pair of impersonal significators, one could attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the second impersonal significator to that which benefits a male enquirer or to that which a male enquirer values. When reading for a female enquirer, one could attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the second impersonal significator to that which benefits the subject (whether male or female) or to that which the subject values. For example, when reading for a male enquirer, one could interpret a pair that comprises the kings of swords as an impersonal significator preceding the four of coins as denoting a male enquirer who benefits from his family, a male enquirer who values his family, or a male enquirer who both benefits from and values his family. When reading for a female enquirer, one could interpret a pair that comprises the king of swords as an impersonal significator preceding the four of coins as denoting a subject who benefits from his or her family, a subject who values his or her family, or a subject who both benefits from and values his or her family. Where the king of swords is the second card in a prospective pair of impersonal significators, one would attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the first impersonal significator to one or more of the adjectival significations of the king of swords. Where one is unable to form a contextually relevant or logical phrase by doing so, one would attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the first impersonal significator to one or more of the nounal significations of the king of swords. Where one is unable to form a contextually relevant or logical phrase by doing so, one would attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the first impersonal significator to one or more of the verbal significations of the king of swords. Verbs Aid (n: aid); assist (n: assistance, assistant); benefit (n: benefit); help (adj.: helpful; n: help, helper, helpfulness); support (adj.: supportable; adv.: supportably; n: support, supporter); value (adj.: valuable; n: valuation). Additional Adjective Supportive. Queen of Swords (a Female Benefactor) Concerning personal significations, the queen of swords could signify: – Any female whose actions, influence, position, or resources benefit an enquirer (relative to the context of the enquiry). – Any female from whose actions, influence, position, or resources an enquirer expects to benefit (relative to the context of the enquiry). – Any female with whom an enquirer has a relationship that he or she deems as being beneficial. – Any female with whom an enquirer has a relationship that he or she values (regardless of whether the enquirer deems the relationship as being beneficial). – Any female with whom an enquirer has a relationship that he or she expects should be beneficial, but that may not be beneficial at the time of an enquiry. – Any female with whom an enquirer would like to have a relationship. For example, if an enquirer asked whether a female family member, a female friend, a female romantic partner, or a female neighbour would oblige some request, the queen of swords could be interpreted as signifying the said family member, the said friend, the said romantic partner, or the said neighbour. Where the queen of swords is the first card in a prospective pair of impersonal significators, one could attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the second impersonal significator to that which benefits a female enquirer or to that which a female enquirer values. When reading for a male enquirer, one could attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the second impersonal significator to that which benefits the subject (whether male or female) or to that which the subject values. Where the queen of swords is the second card in a prospective pair of impersonal significators, one would attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the first impersonal significator to one or more of the adjectival significations of the queen of swords. Where one is unable to form a contextually relevant or logical phrase by doing so, one would attempt to relate one or more of the nounal significations of the first impersonal significator to one or more of the nounal significations of the queen of swords.

When reading for a female enquirer, one could attempt to relate one or more of the nounal or verbal significations of the second impersonal significator to one or more of the aversions of the subject (whether male or female) or to one or more of the fears of the subject. For example, when reading for a male enquirer, one could interpret a pair that comprises the knight of swords as an impersonal significator preceding the two of swords as denoting an enquirer who is averse to quitting. When reading for a female enquirer, one could interpret a pair that comprises the knight of swords as an impersonal significator preceding the two of swords as denoting a subject who is averse to quitting.
