Witchy Wednesday - Practical Magic Part 3

This week we're looking at part three of Practical Magic (Kindle) by Nikki Van De Car. Instead of a traditional review I thought I would take the next few weeks to go into each of the chapters with you at my first read as opposed to reading the entire book and then giving a review.  You can find several of her publications at Running Press.

Part Three of this book is titled Casual Clairvoyance.  This section gives a high level overview of a few methods of divination. It reviews the Tarot, Palmistry, Astrology and Dream Interpretation.  Keep in mind this is a beginner's book so the sections on each are short and provide a basic understanding of the art.

The Tarot section for example provides and overview of the suites, the major arcana and then two spreads.  A basic three card (past, present and future) and what the author calls a Guidance Spread. I did a quick search on the net and couldn't find a reference to the Guidance Spread.  Basically it is a nine card spread that is outlined in the book. While not the most in-depth reading spread I have seen, I think it is a great start for a beginner.  If you're interested in this spread, you'll need to buy her book.

This is a brief video of a three card spread.




I am by no means an expert on the Tarot and I recommend that you reach out to a Tarot professional in your area or check out my sister Kallan's page for more information on Tarot and Totem readings.

Here are a couple videos on some of the other divination methods she discusses.
