Determining the Week

Having determined the season of the event concerned, we now look to Card 10 — the outcome — for the key to the week of the event. Let us say that the Three of Cups appears in position 10, with the Ace of Swords in position 6. This means that the event will culminate approximately three weeks from the beginning of the autumn season, or about the third week of September.

Although the Aces are important in all five of the Celtic positions, the two most revealing esoteric time cards are

Card 6 = This is before you.

Card 10 = This is the outcome. Card 10 — the Date Card — is a fixed aspect. The number of the card that falls in this position determines the week of the event, within the confines of the Season Card in positions 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9.

Now let's study in detail each of the positions in which the Aces, or Season Cards, may fall.
