This 1930′s deck of 45 cards is a rare find. Included in this game of divination are the individual cards having the meanings printed on them as well as an instruction layout card. The backs of them have a zodiac wheel.
- Cover of Box
The deck consists of:
- 12 cards describing the astrology signs (12)
- cards 2-11 have circled numbers sporting 3 images (10)
- cards 2-11 sport 3 images (10) No 9 & 10
- cards 4-12 have a square around the numbers and sport 3 images (9) No 6 & 8
- 7 cards have an “X” in the upper right hand corner (7)
The method of this layout requires lots of space. First, you remove the 12 Astrology cards, shuffle them and lay them out facedown in a horoscope circle. Take the remaining cards, shuffle and place 2 cards facedown in each of the 12 horoscope houses with 1 card in the middle to represent the Time card (also facedown). Card 1 of the 2 cards is beneath the Astrology card and card 2 is in the spot closer to the center (Time card).
Next, you turn over the Astrology house cards. Find your Zodiac sign and read it (not shown) Turn over the Time card and read only the top prediction.
Reading: Time Card- plain #11. ”You will shortly have a guest for tea who will develop into a fine friend or possibly Cupid himself may take a hand in this matter.”
Then you read the bottom section of Card 1.
Reading: Card 1 plain #2. ”You will make a change which will enable you to rise to great heights socially, but do not rise too rapidly, lest you become dizzy and fall.”
Lastly, you read the middle section of Card 2.
Reading: Card 2 circled #6. ”There are several outworn business methods which you should brush down as you would a cobweb if you wish your work to profit as it should.”
The instruction say that you can read for any person whether they are physically present or not. Great for distance readings as long as you know the person’s date of birth (Astrology sign) and a question.
I mentioned before some cards had circled numbers, somewhere inside a square others had an X in the upper right hand corner. Also some numbers are plain. When determining more advanced Timing of events you add up your month and day plus the number on the original Time card in the center. Check to see the number on the Time card. Is it in a square (YEARS), a circle (MONTHS), plain (WEEKS) or an X (indefinite). The numbering system is complete.
ADVANCED TIMING FOR THIS READING: Time card 11 + (birth month) 3 + (birth day) 5 = 19 = 10
