I have been immersed in tarot / oracle cards since 2005 and am beginning to have a varied collection. In February this year I was fortunate enough to spend a morning with a French friend who is a ” kiné ” but uses alternative therapy too. She introduced me to William Berton….
There are 90 cards in total, 45 colours. Each card is produced twice. The only difference is the backing colour. Gold or Red.
Whilst the cards have a book to accompany them with many an explanation I still felt quite lost. I then discovered a very good on-line series of videos in French and spent the best part of a week immersing myself and studying them. I have my own notebook and each page has a card colour and then my interpretation / understanding based on whether the colour has a Gold backing or a Red backing. Some cards are easier to interpret than others and as yet with face to face readings I lack some spontaneity.
So what’s good about these cards? They are different, you can’t guess. They require intuition and a deep understanding of how a certain colour can relate to a behaviour or a mood. There are no key words to give any clues like in certain decks of tarot / oracle cards.
I have found that to use them effectively they require well formed questions. Not just a question requiring a yes / no answer. I have been using them at the end of a reading as a compliment to the tarot / oracle cards. One client last week commented on the cards being scary in comparison to my Vision Quest Tarot. Another client found great comfort in the fact that they echoed the Tarot.
I am trying to incorporate them into my daily life and simply select two cards each morning…. one red backing one gold backing. The red backing card represents the situation for the day, the gold backing represents how to live it.
If you are interested in an intuitive interpretation to a specific question I am offering a couple of free readings via e-mail this week.
And should you wish to purchase your own set of cards William Berton has a website.
