Tarot Timing Method presented by Wayne Limberger
The common method for judging the timing of events using tarot cards – usually a variation of “Wands/Fire = hours or days; Swords/Air = weeks; Cups/Water = months and Pentacles/Earth = years” – leaves a lot to be desired. Quite often, the context of the question makes a prediction of “hours,” “days” or “years” using this approach completely unreasonable. Barley’s Timing Method dispenses with the notion of suit correspondences and uses the 12-phase division of many standard systems of time measurement. It employs all 78 cards and a significator to locate the event in time. The anticipated time frame – hours, days, weeks, months, quarters or years – is chosen in advance based on present knowledge of the situation, and adjusted if necessary.
Attendees should bring their favorite standard or pocket-size tarot deck (this is a large layout), and a question they want to put to the timing spread. A significator card should be “charged” with the question or, if desired, the outcome card from a previous reading for which timing was uncertain can be used. This will be a hands-on session that will cover the working of the timing method in practical terms.
