Nemia's Discoveries: Negative and Positive Influences

Nemia is a poster on the Aeclectic Tarot Forum and she recently received her Deck of 1000 Spreads. But even before it arrived, she had grand ideas of what to use it for. Unless otherwise indicated, the following are Nemia's words and photos. In this exercise, she plays with the Positive and Negative Influences cards to see not only how each card reads in each position, but how it changes the meaning of a reading when those two cards are switched. 

Negative – Positive Influences

I did this exercise with the Touchstone Tarot because it emphasizes the human face of the cards. Perhaps because it's easier for me to envision influences as persons.

How easy, when the somber Knight of Swords is a negative influence, the happy family of the 10 of Cups a positive one!

And what an interesting turn, when the Knight's critical eyes are a beneficial influence, while the seemingly harmonious family exerts a negative influence.

And so I continue to put new cards, change their positions, and try to come up with interpretations. This expands my reading powers! And it's actually a simple permutation.
