Using Playing Cards and Dice in Place of Tarot Cards
Show Notes

Divination using found objects or collected trinkets is a fun way to use your intuition and also add to your knowledge of tarot.  There are many ways you can add the use of dice alongside your readings or even as a separate system.  Playing cards are inexpensive (also highly collectable), but work very well for reading the cards.   There is a cool system of reading fortunes with Dominoes as well, your creativity is the only limit!
