'Clubs' sayno. Spades suggest a 'maybe no', whilst Diamonds say 'maybe yes'. Drawing three Club cards would suggest a definite 'no' for example. By contrast, a heart, a club and a diamond would say 'maybe yes'. In this case, the definite 'yes' and 'no' of the heart and club cancel each other out, leaving the diamond to decide the issue.

stubbornness and resilience are all qualities be-stowed by this card. With the House, your home life is stable. With the Tower,your workplace is similarly stable.

A step too far can lead to disastrous consequences. When the Cross appears,you need to grin and bear a difficult situation. You are in the hands of the gods. With the Mice,untreated anxiety can lead to chronic depression. With the Whip you have genuine cruelty. With the Moon to the left, suffering becomes difficult to explain, whilst a pairing with the Stars shows a destiny that is profound yet challenging.

need to tread carefully. Both playing card inserts are Clubs,pointing you to challenging circumstanc-es in your life. If you're asking a yes/no question, two Clubs would suggest a firm 'No'.The Heart + the Sun suggests a blessed and thriving romance. The combination of Hearts and Diamonds in this context shows a stable base, which allows for joint enterprise or adventures. For yes/no questions,this suggests a strong probability the answer will be 'yes'.
If you want to increase clarity and accuracy, partic-ularly with yes/no enquiries, three card draws are even more effective. Clouds+ Mountain +House gives us two Clubs plus one heart in the pip inserts. Iwo Clubs normally suggest a firm 'No' but the presence of a Heart dilutes this to a possible 'No' with a window left open for other possibilities. The Mountain in the centre blocks the difficult influ-ence of the Clouds to the left, while enhancing the stability of the House to the right. This is a stable and protected home. The fact that we also have two Club cards and the King of Hearts reinforces this reading. The challenges of the Clubs bear down on the homeliness of Hearts. Despite this,the Moun-tain in the centre provides key protection.
