I am practicing one card readings. So I did one last night on whether it was going to rain today? It had been raining since the last two days. (ok, I know this is not earth shattering stuff). My card?
Two of wands from the Thoth deck.
My immediate reaction: Nopes, it is going to be scorchingly sunny
My second thoughts: Peering more into the card, the tiny blue specks in the middle somehow caught my fancy and I figured , yeah maybe a bit
Third thoughts (and last): I decided I was just trying to hedge my bets here and I should go with my first reading. So I firmly wrote in my notebook "nopes, it is going to be scorching".
So did it rain? It was terribly hot till 5 in the evening and then a shower which lasted for precisely 10 minutes.
What did I learn? Go with your first thoughts, but its not like they are end all. Practice some more... ;)
