As with all forms of divination, cartomancy requires good judgment on the part of the reader. Even if you know virtually nothing about your querent, the spread of cards you lay out for them will tell you a lot if you are open to their story. When you begin a reading, be sure to sit back and take a moment to evaluate the big picture of the spread. This will allow you to understand what the individual cards are pointing to in the specific case of the reading you are doing and the person you are doing it for. Most cards, remember, can point to different meanings.
The Eight of Clubs has some interesting insights that will morph with its place in any given spread. Most prominently it is telling the querent to stay the course and keep his or her nose to the grindstone. Distractions are out there and can be very tempting but beware! Even a short diversion may ruin what has already taken up so much time and effort. Don’t let opportunity slip away for a few hours of enjoyment.
On the other hand, the card may point to an adrenaline junky who loves to live on the edge, particularly with their money. Gambling and speculation may be “in the cards” but depending on the reading and the individual querent, either a weighty warning or a little encouragement should be offered.
No one said this cartomancy thing would be easy. But nothing worthwhile ever is. Bon Vendredi, mes amis ~
