Sadly, I'm wondering if pocket diaries/day planners are becoming relics of the past?

Surely it's possible to adapt the effect so that it uses the calendar app on a smart phone, but would it still play as strongly, I wonder?


Playing card are a relic of the past but they are still important, right? I like this version https://weeklycartomancy.blogspot.com/ from my friend Pablo

Also, I've never quite "bought" into the idea of writing down a playing card for each date in a diary. For me, it made much more sense to write down a tarot card (since I know of readers who actually do this). I adjusted the routine accordingly, even though I then couldn't use some of the later subtleties in handling that were only possible with playing cards.

However, that being said, there are playing card decks that are designed specifically for use with divination (e.g., Nile or Kadar), that would be a nice complement to Cassidy's effect.


Hey Philemon, Can you point to any sites or tricks that use the Tarot Card to Calendar principle?

I'm sure if you do a Google search for "tarot card diary" or "tarot card journal," you'll find plenty of references.

The idea is simply to draw a random Tarot card in the morning, write it down in your diary/journal/day-planner, then at the end of the day, reflect on what happened to you that day and how the card may relate.

I've always wondered why Bob used the AS, 2S, 3S and 4S.

That just seems like a lot of spades written in the diary if someone happens to flip through. (of course I know about audience management)

Is there any reason to NOT use maybe the AS, 2H, 3C and 4D?

Seems like more variety in the diary. Or for that matter, the first 4 cards of Mnemonica or something like that.

If you have thoughts or insight on that, I'd love to hear it.

I've loved the trick for years (going way back to Mental Masterpieces), but haven't ever fully made it up yet.

I believe it was because the black cards show up better on stage. Not sure why all spades, and no clubs though

He mentioned it that because Spades are much more visual an it can be seen from greater distance.

Scott Creasey has a spin on this in his new book 22 using Tarot cards.
