The seriousness of each Reading Session will be reviewed. Reading Sessions are important to the Querent. They are not to be taken lightly.
The deck being featured in this series is the "Tarot of Dreams" deck by Ciro Marchetti. This deck is unique in that it contains 4 extra cards, called Palace Cards. This brings the deck to 82 cards instead of the traditional 78. This chapter will summarize these cards for you to integrate into your Readings if you so choose.
Part 2: The Significator
The Significator is an integral part of the Reading. This chapter outlines what a Significator is, why it is important, and various ways that a Significator can be chosen. While there are many possibilities, by answering a few simple questions on the now fully expanded "Questionnaire Worksheet," the choice can be narrowed down fairly quickly. Full charts for these choices are repeated for continuity from Series 1 - 5.
In addition to the ways already briefly reviewed, the choice by Zodiac (Sun) Sign is now included. It involves more understanding of the Court Cards, suits and their corresponding element, and the integration of 12 of the Major Arcana with Astrology, so it, therefore, is more advanced.
