Where Did Psycards Come from?
The Psycards System was created in the 1980’s by Nick Hobson and Maggie Kneen. It was much influenced by Carl Gustav Jung, the great psychotherapist, by fairy stories and the arts of the Celts. Within Psycards are 40 cards. The images mirror the human heart. The Body, Home, Mother, and Father evoke symbols that are meaningful for all people round the world. Unconscious promptings remind an individual what aspects of the psyche should develop. There are 5 pointer cards (Inquirer, Yes, No, Now Never) helps guide a person to make an important decision.
Psycards are for divination and self development. There are three books written about Psycards.
Can You Use Psycards With Tarot Cards?
The short answer is Yes, there are a number of professional Tarot readers who combine tarot with Psycards for readings and there are also others who use Psycards for specific parts of readings instead of using the tarot, for example if the tarot reading highlights the client will have to make a choice then a psycard deck may be used to give a mini reading within the general reading to highlight the what may happen is a certain choice is made.
This can be done without having to reuse and reshuffle any of the tarot cards or detract from that specific reading.
Can You "Read For Yourself?
