Looking for more resources
I find the cards quite fascinating, and I can see a whole lot of patterns that I need to follow one day. While doing your research, have you come across any reference books that explain the why of the card system or even astrology? I seem to be more interested in understanding the underlying concepts behind them rather than the techniques.
No books explain those types of things, you have to think about them yourself.
I have a question.
Looking at the main spread, the one where every card is in sequence (sorry, can’t remember if you call it the Jack or the King spread), it looks like a stream of energy crossing over another - the Clubs and Diamonds being prevalent over the Spades and Hearts (perhaps at this point in time).
The spread begins on January 1. That is the Gregorian calendar and is fairly new. In your research, I was wondering if you came across any information as to how the spread might have been previous to that, or if there was another “starting date to the year”.
Another thing I find curious is that there is no flow to the numbers from the end of the month to the beginning of the next month, which might indicate there being something more to the story than meets the eye, and something that we might not be taking into account (at this point in time).
Its hard to know just how it may have been calculated in the past. We could try it with different calendar systems and see if any thing else works. The gregorian calendar is the only world wide calendar in effect these days so it has the most mass of consciousness behind it, so thats why it works so well.
