Tell the story of your life through tarot

Tarot card counting is a wonderfully rich and exciting technique for reading tarot cards. Brought to light by the Golden Dawn, but used much earlier by European cartomancers, it allows a sequential story to unfold before your very eyes.

Today I want to play with my Signature Spread a little more, give it a new name, and introduce elemental dignities to it to show you how much fun you can have when you work in triads. The card pairing in the first post still applies, but with a slightly new layout to accommodate the elemental dignities, we will be adding a couple more pairings to the list.
