Originally this was a complex system based on a combination of ancient symbolism, mystical tradition, astrology, tarot, and the significance of numbers. While you may certainly use playing cards for readings in the way Rex has suggested on the tapes, this system takes the use of playing cards for readings to another level entirely.
We feel that by giving you a card system that is recognized outside of the performance field, you will be able to increase your confidence quickly. You will also learn a great deal more about card readings in general. In fact, you could easily pass as an authority on the subject by what we are now giving to you.
While this system takes a great deal of study to comprehend in its original form, the simplified application we give you is far easier to grasp and learn. What makes this system truly unique is that a playing card is selected based on a client's date of birth. Please understand this is not the magician's trick of playing cards randomly spread throughout a calendar for a "forcing effect". No doubt some performers may wish to investigate ways to predict a person's birth-card when using this system. Please be certain however that such predictions do not take away from the earnestness of the reading itself.
Recently in the United States a greeting card company put out birthday cards with readings on them based on this system. Several of us recognized the value of this as a very commercial way to give quite a personal reading. The costs of such a set up however, and the constant stocking of the greeting cards, became a real hindrance to practical readings.
Our solution is to pass on to you easily applicable portions of the original system. We will use quickly recalled keywords for numbers and suits. We will also detail these areas a bit, but you don't have to "memorize" all of the details. The keywords will serve as reminders and spur on your own impressions about the suits and numbers.
Once you know a client's birth month and day, you consult the chart to see which card belongs to that day. You can then give a reading about the client based on the symbols and meanings of this particular card. Even without using intuitive impressions, we have found this system to be remarkably accurate for most people. And many clients like the fact that you never ask for the YEAR in which they were born!
