Tarot Reading: Yes or No (2 Cards)
using a full 78 card tarot deck based on use of standard playing cards as pip cards
This is a 'Yes, No' tarot reading using our Playing Card Tarot Deck (upright cards only).
As the title of this spread suggests, the YES card (on the left) relates to the situation if the querent proceeds with the scenario that he or she has in mind at the beginning of the reading. The NO card (on the right) refers to the situation if the possibility held in mind at the outset is dismissed and either the overall opportunity is rejected or some other path is chosen.
To proceed with this reading, clear your mind then focus on the situation that you would like the cards to offer insights about. Take care to ensure that the 'Yes' scenario is uniquely defined in your mind. Then turn the cards over ...

The NO Card : The Tower
What if I don't ? This represents the alternative scenario if you choose not to proceed, assuming no other changes in the situation.
This is the 17th of the 22 cards of the Major Arcana (numbered 0-21). These cards, also known as 'trumps,' are considered particularly strong indicators of e.g. important people, situations, considerations or events. Pay attention to the meaning of the position in the tarot spread in which The Tower appears.
- Dramatic unexpected change
- Chaos, upheaval
- Fall of structures considered solid and reliable
- Extreme 'wake-up call'
- Forced re-evaluation of attitudes and methods
The Tower tarot card is also associated with the planet Mars and the element of Fire.
