This is a blog about reading cards: Playing-cards, Tarot de Marseille, contemporary tarot, Lenormand, and some other oracles.

I offer cutting-edge insights into the method of reading a visual text according to cultural context and situational correspondence.

As I keep preaching that insofar as language is based on random glyphs chosen conventionally – and thus has symbolic value not inherent meaning – what we must look at when we read a visual text is what function the image performs before we get ‘deep’ with a presupposed symbolic content.

Here below is a visual greeting of the moving picture form.

Enjoy this space.
