Time Event With Tarot

One thing is to look in the cards and be able to predict what is likely to occur, another is to accurately time events using tarot. Timing events using Tarot is easy when you follow these simple techniques using either the suits, the aces, the planetary cards and/or the 5 year system.

You can use the four suits and the pages of the suits:

  • Pentacles ~ Years. 
  • Page of Pentacles ~ Autumn
  • Swords ~ Months
  • Page of Swords ~ Winter
  • Wands ~ Weeks
  • Page of Wands ~ Spring
  • Cups ~ Days, but only if next to a pentacle card.
  • Page of Cups ~ Summer

 We can hugely influence the outcome by our beliefs and ideas. The cards pick up on this as well. For example, someone recently asked how much longer they were going to stick at their job. This person had been thinking of leaving for some time. I laid out three cards. The cards that came up spoke of a holiday. The person was going on holiday for a month over Christmas and didn’t want to resign before then. The cards clearly stated that this holiday was significant and the resignation is likely to happen during this period.

The next 6 years tarot system

Another way to predict when things are likely to occur is to look at the next 6 years, I turn the cards over one by one with 12 cards in 6 piles, then the rest of the deck in the 7th pile  Each of the six first piles represent 1 year, pile one being the first year, pile two being the second year etc. Examine all the piles. Depending on the question look at the pile with the most favourable cards. For example if the question is about when will I get pregnant, then look at the pile that has the Empress, Ace of Wands or Ace of Cups and the Sun. Look at the combination that looks most favourable and notice what pile they are in. If the most favourable cards are in pile 4 then it is most likely to happen in 4 years time. However if it is not likely to happen within 6 years, the most favourable cards will be in the 7th pile. The 7th pile represents the long distant future (not just the 7th year)

To predict when something will happen in the next 12 month you can use the Aces:

Ace of Cups ~ First Quarter

Ace of Wands ~ 2nd Quarter

Ace of Swords ~ 3rd Quarter

Ace of Pentacles ~ 4th Quarter

If your prediction is when something will happen within the next month, you can use this method as well, each quarter will be about 7 days.

To determine the day you can use the planetary cards:

Shuffle the deck using only the 22 Major Arcana card and turn the cards over one by one. The first of the planetary cards to be turned over will be the answer to which day it is most likely to occur. 

Monday ~ High Priestess ( Moon)

Tuesday ~ Tower (Mars)

Wednesday ~ Magician (Mercury)

Thursday ~ Wheel of Fortune (Jupiter)

Friday ~ Empress (Venus)

Saturday ~ World (Saturn)

Sunday ~ Sun (Sun)

You can also use the tarot dates, cycles and seasons to time events.
