The most difficult part of Tarot has to do with timing.
Unlike astrology and numerology, the Tarot does not lend itself to exact timing. This is one of the reasons I prefer Tarot to other disciplines : I believe that the point of power is in the present and that the future is "plastic" and can be influenced , in part, by one's will and intention. This being said : time is one of the questions I get the most.
When will a particular event happen? When will I meet the love of my life? When will I get the promotion or change job? When will I get married or pregnant?
One is to pull the cards until I reach an ace. Before I proceed, I decide that the cards represent days; then I count the number of cards I turned over before getting to an ace.
The other is to work only with the minor arcana and ask the consultant to give me a number from 1 to 56 (there are 56 minors in the Tarot deck).
I will then pick the card.
The key to the system is: wands = spring, cups = summer, pentacles = autumn, swords = winter.
An ace then represents the 1st week of the season; the Queen represents the 13th week of the season. Kings represent transition from one season to the next.
The issue with time frames.
This being said, I always tell the consultant that time frames can always be changed through intent and desire and that timings given by the Tarot are indicative.
