Using the Minor Arcana to Build a Timeframe.

Ceremonial magicians the world over are more than familiar with the Tarot, many being responsible for the understandings of the cards that folks have today. One of the more interesting things that Tarot has been connected to is the summoning and conversing with of various entities such as angels or deities. Using one particular system of magick, many of these deities have a card that is specific for them, as well as a time of year. This time of year generally stretches out for about ten days. The interesting thing that I noted while flipping through one of the more entertaining books of Ceremonial Magick was that each being also had a particular tarot card connected to them.

Recognising something useful when I see it, I decided that the card-date connection could be very useful for trying to find out when an outcome for something is likely. I’m far from the only one that’s ever noticed this, but it’s something that I’ve not seen utilised much, so I can only speak for myself when I say that the results I’ve gotten are often quite accurate.

For a simple idea of when during the next twelve months something will occur, just remove the Major Arcana,  the Court cards and the Aces from the deck. Shuffle the Minor Arcana well and place them in front of you. Draw one randomly from the Minor Arcana, trusting your intuition or instincts. That card has a period of ten days associated with it, so simply find the card below and check which period of time that it correlates to.
