This is the most popular tarot deck in the world. It's the one I use exclusively. But you can choose from many others: Tarot Decks
(Excerpt from LottoWorld Magazine, July 1996 issue)
Of the many ways we seek to unravel the mysteries of predicting the future, the use of Tarot cards plays an exciting and important role. Finding winning lottery numbers in the cards is a fun way to develop your intuition. Simply by the flip of a few cards you may win the lotto fortune of your dreams.
To use the Tarot for lottery picks, you don't need to understand the basic meanings of each card. Some basics, however, will help you make the most of this mystical system.
To begin with, a Tarot deck is comprised of 22 Major Arcana cards and 56 Lesser Arcana cards. The most popular Tarot deck in use today is The Rider Tarot Deck. But since you will be using the deck to find winning numbers, the Rider deck has one potential drawback - the cards are labeled with roman Numerals (i.e. I, V, X, etc.). If you're not comfortable dealing with those, you can find many other Tarot decks that use Arabic numbers (i.e., 7, 8, 9, etc.).
Setting the Deck for Success
Begin by separating the deck into three sections: the Major Arcana; the Lesser Arcana; and the Court Cards. For lottery picks, don't use the 16 Court Cards inscribed "King," "Queen," "Knight" and "Page." Put them aside.
The Major Arcana contains 22 cards with their corresponding numerical values: 0 - The Fool, 1 - the Magician, 2 - The High Priestess, etc., through 21 - The World.
The 40 Lesser Arcana consists of Swords, Wands, Pentacles, and Cups. They are numbered Ace (1) through X (10) for each suit.
Shuffle your 22 Major Arcana cards (at least seven times) until you sense they are well mixed. Do the same with your 40 Lesser Arcana cards. Keep the stacks separate.
Next, spread each deck face down in front of you. Then choose cards from whichever pile you'd like. There are no rules for how many cards you pick or from which pile, because your intuition will guide you if you don't get in your own way. But here's an example of one way you can proceed:
I plan to play the Fantasy 5 on Friday. With each pile shuffled while I'm sitting comfortably on the floor, I'll spread one stack to the left of me and the other to the right. (Because the Fantasy 5 game in California involves more than 22 numbers (represented by the Major Arcana I'll supplement the 22 Major Arcana with picks from the Lesser Arcana pile. If you game includes a "0," as the pick 3 or 4 games do, use the Major Arcana. The Lesser Arcana doesn't have zeros.) I sit quietly, concentrating on the desire to pick the five winning numbers I need. Focused intent helps a great deal. Try not to let your mind wander from your goal.
Now I'll pick one card from the Major Arcana and one from the lesser Arcana. I'll not add the cards' numbers I've picked so far and use the total for my first lotto pick. I'll jot it down, then choose more cards for my second pick.
For my second pick, I intuitively choose just one card from the Major Arcana. I continue in this fashion until I have the five picks I need for the Fantasy 5.
Using this method, these are the numbers I picked: 6, 16, 26, 17, 31. As you can see from the chart below, the value of the cards for each pick are added to produce one number:
One card from the Major Arcana 5
One card from the Minor Arcana (Ace) 1
5 + 1 = 6
One card from the Major Arcana 16
Two cards from the Major Arcana 19
19 + 7 = 26
Two cards from the Lesser Arcana 10
10 + 7 = 17
Two cards from the Major Arcana 18
18 + 13 = 31
