Timing in Tarot

Often, when people are seeking answers and guidance from Tarot, they also want to know the time frame around the situation. There are several methods used for timing in Tarot. As you read over a few of them, select the one that rings familiar to you. If it sounds too difficult to memorize, then it probably is not the one you should use.

If you are not a Tarot reader, then all of them may sound difficult, which is normal. Then again, you may be uncomfortable reading Tarot, but you feel comfortable inquiring about time frames of situations or events in your life. This is actually a nice way to familiarize yourself with Tarot cards. Ask some simple questions about timing, and learn to at least determine timing details by using your intuition with the Tarot cards.

If this is new to you, do not ask questions about crucial matters just yet. Start with simple things that are not traumatic or life changing events.

This is my favorite:

To predict when something will happen in the next 12 month you can use the Aces:

  1. Ace of Cups ~ First Quarter
  2. Ace of Wands ~ 2nd Quarter
  3. Ace of Swords ~ 3rd Quarter
  4. Ace of Pentacles ~ 4th Quarter

If your prediction is when something will happen within the next month, you can use this method as well, each quarter will be about 7 days.

The way I remember this is by relating the Ace of Cups to getting myself ready spiritually for the coming year, during the first quarter, January, February, and March.

I relate the Ace of Wands to honing my skills or developing my talents during the second quarter of the year, April, May, and June.

The third quarter of the years is when I analyze the situation and put my plan into motion, during the months of July, August, and September.

Finally, during the fourth quarter of the year, October, November, and December, I reap the harvest, receive the rewards, and accept the success of the year.
