    do you use signifcator in your readings?
    do you find it useful, helpful?

    for myself i don't use it, must admit never fully understood the meaning and need of this...


    would love to hear what your thoughts on the subject

    Hi Shayn, I don't use it either I think it could be good in the early days as it's a starting point.

    Think of it as a very short term focus of the person.
    Some spreads/books say you should pick one to use as sort of avatar and it may or may not bring some small insite to the speard. It's a decent starting spot in my opinion as it helps you get a feel for the person you are reading for. Once anyone gets used to the cards and reading them it'll probably be a step they can skip.

    Other than what I said above, I never found them that useful. Once a person gets used to the cards they'll probably make thier own spead anyway.

    Hello


    As I do not use a "deck" in the physical realms I had to look up this term " signifigator" .

    It seems that it is a card that is used to represent the querent ( one who seeks ) in the tarot reading.

    Learned that not all spreads use one, but one of the most popular one's does the Celtic Cross. I got the first ever reading in that pattern given me the other day. I had a very specific question to answer and that was the way the cards came to me. I had to even GOOGLE to find the name for the layout.

    For me if I am having troubles getting the reading for someone I will ask for an outline. The three cards Past, Present, and Near Future to give me an overlay of what they might well want to know. To ask for a general reading is all fine and good but there is ALWAYS a hidden reason for why one wants the reading. Something they at the time might not even know.

    I too know that for me I am simply drawing on past life knowlege to do the readings. Memory keeps the cards there, and from what the reader I use most she says the cards are a "tool" to show the clients is all. The knowlede needed is alreay in self it just needs the door opened is all.

    With playing cards it is easy to choose a significator using the court cards as they all have their own 'personality' for instance the queen of hearts would represent a loving, caring woman with dark blond or light brown hair, a peacemaker, all the other court cards have their 'personality' too i'm sure the same could be applied to the court cards of the tarot.
