Hello, I'm Ellen Goldberg and I welcome you to a Tarot Moment for the School of Oracles. This segment is a variation on one segment we've already done. Check out the segment on the three card reading. There we use it on the one we've done previously on how to use it for the most important question to the tarot - tell me what you think I ought to know about myself right now. But now we're going to do the same reading but use it in a manner of how to use those three cards as a yes or no reading. You would never apply any of this to the identity reading, tell me what I need to know about myself right now because there if a card is reversed it's quite different than here, this is very specific.

We're still gonna follow the pattern of the lover's card where the card in the center is going to represent the essence of the question itself. If it's upright when we flip it over from the side, the answer is yes. If it's reversed when we flip it over from the side, the answer is no. The two cards on either side, which are like the man and the woman, show something about what you may know consciously and something about the unconscious. And since the unconscious plant seeds, it may show a little bit about future trend or where things may be heading. But really they're basically there to give more information about the center card. I've had a young woman I know ask a question. We've shuffled, we move them round and round, she shuffled four times, and after shuffling her question into the cards, I had her cut them. And then we dealt off the top of the bottom of the cut.

Card number one is the center card, just like the Angel, with following the Tree of Life, Uno, ah, Keter, Chockmah and Binah, one, two three, this is center is always the first card, second third card. The question is she wants to talk to someone who's an employer of hers and she's accompanying them on a travel very soon. She wants to know, can she bring up an important question to them while they are all in Miami together. Let's find out. Might as well go for it. Turn the center card over first. Well, she shouldn't. Change may be coming if she's yearning for it, and in the future she's going to have fulfillment. Look it, the center card is no, it's reversed, but the cards on either side are both friendly in element, earth and water, are the two feminine elements and are always very friendly. Remember, the only time cards bring out extra chafing is when its near one of the only element that doesn't apply well with it.

For fire, it's water. For water, it's fire. For air, it's earth, and vice versa. Here we have completely friendly elements. Look how beautiful these outer cards are, the Page of Pentacles indicating an entire new journey and new cycle of life and work, and home perhaps, but I think work. In the subconscious is the Lord of Pleasure, the Six of Cups, one of the most beautiful cards in the deck of true sharing, true beauty, true beauty of life and enjoying the process. So no, she should not talk to this important man right now. Instead, she should just wait. Beauty is coming to her, and she's going to be entering a new cycle. But this is not the time. That's how you use a three card cluster in a particular way.
