Rider WaiteTarot Reading


Draw One Card


Drawing just one card from the deck is the easiest and probably the most common method of doing a reading. Without a storyline like when interpreting a spread, there are no cards to compare and contrast. You can simply interpret the card as the answer to your question.

Alternatively, you may use this method repeatedly in succession to let the cards tell you a story.

5 of Pentacles

Two mendicants in a snow-storm pass a lighted casement.

Divinatory Meaning:

The card foretells material trouble above all, whether in the form illustrated – that is, destitution – or otherwise. For some cartomancers, it is a card of love and lovers – wife, husband, friend, mistress; also, concordance, affinities. These alternatives cannot be harmonised.
