Cards of Truth Readings


The Cards of Truth is a unique astrological system developed by Ernst Wilhelm . The Cards of Truth system contains within it all of the factors and principles of Vedic astrology along with the additional meanings found in the ancient archetypes of the 52 cards. While some see card reading as distinct from astrology, I see them as one. In my experience, the Cards of Truth organizes and displays the levels of patterned relationships that an astrologer needs to see. I am not currently aware of a more complete system for reading patterns than this system, and it has become my primary approach to all things astrological.

The Cards of Truth contain many Spreads for reading: the Birth Spread, the Year Spread, the Day Spread, and Progressed Spreads. I am now offering the following Card Readings:

Natal Reading
The Natal Reading is focused on the Birth Spread. It is the Cards version of a Birth Chart reading, and is in my opinion, more complete. This is a reading of who you are, what you are here to do, strengths and weaknesses, and how to harmonize with your evolutionary potential.

Yearly Reading
The Yearly Reading is focused on the Year Spread. If we understand astrology as a calendrical system, then we can see how the twelve months of a year unfold according to a patterned cycle of seven planetary phases. According to the Cards of Truth system, each phase is ruled by one of the seven planets (Sun - Saturn) and lasts a period of 52 days. Seven phases of 52 days each equals roughly 365 days of the year. Thus, the cards provide us with a solar calendar and allow us to understand the vital patterns of the year. The Year begins with the Sun card and is followed by the Moon card, Mars card, Mercury card, Jupiter card, Venus card, and finally concluding with the Saturn card. Each of these phases carries the intrinsic characteristic of the planet it represents. The year begins with the Sun--the creative foundation from which all things are possible. The Year ends with Saturn--the release of what is no longer necessary. In between are all of the remaining planets and their qualities. Within these characteristics are the archetypal meanings of the card that represents each phase, which adds several additional layers of meaning. The intersection of these two patterns is what the reading is focused on articulating.

Manual Spreads
Manual Spreads are similar to Prashna readings. In these readings, I look to answer a question (or series of questions) by drawing a card or casting a manual Spread. I may also reference the Birth, Year, Day, or Progressed Spreads.

Natal and Yearly Card Readings are $180 USD. For Manual Spreads, please contact me for pricing. I do not put a time limit on my readings, but I recommend setting aside 2 hours in a quiet place where you will be undisturbed. My readings typically take anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on the person. Payment can be made via PayPal below. Note that Readings are given through videoconference on Zoom. (If you do not have Zoom, please download it before the Reading). I record all readings and will send you the recording within 24-48hrs of our meeting.
