No more Tarot for client reads, no more Lenormand either. The past twenty years have effectively wiped out the vibratory frequency of Tarot whether Marseilles style or Rider Waite as a public divination tool. Having grown up with a Tarot deck in my hand I do not say this lightly.
Lenormand was quickly leveled by Millennials to base level fortune telling by intuitive readers- too busy burning sage to actually learn the system. After 7 odd years of teaching myself Lenormand from German sources and swimming in an Internet shark tank of cliquish, biased New Age wanna be Cartomancy superstars, the glamour of reading those cards wore thin.
To be honest Tarot is best used for those who are actually walking and working on the Hermetic Path. It is a great evaluation tool for initiates of the Golden Dawn, Silver Star, and other lodges. It is not a system to be used for fortune telling at a psychic fair. Tarot is divination not fortune telling. There is a BIG difference.
Since English is my Mother Tongue, working with a German oracle is a very comfortable energy. So I choose the Kippers, the Original Kippers to do fortune telling for clients and myself!
No 36 card Grand Tableau spread either. The 36 card layout doesn’t allow the free flow of energies which the Stop Card method encourages. I use the 4 base card method around the Main card & meanings as taught by Hildegard Leiding. From that starting position I then move into the Stop Card layout which I was introduced to by Toni Puhle.
The only downside is the small numbers on the Original Kippers which make notation of readings tedious as even with glasses on I still have to pick up the cards when I fail to remember their rank numbers.
