Reading Systems, Oracles & Cold Reading

There are many reading systems and oracles in use today, such as Tarot, Palmistry, Cartomancy, Numerology, Astrology (Zodiac), Geomancy, and others. In performance these are often combined with cold reading and other techniques from the mentalists tool box.

Cold Reading means that your reading uses no previously obtained information about the client. You rely on your powers of observation and the ability to make deductions. Taking note on how a person dresses, their carriage, the way they respond to certain categories of questions and their body language can tell an expert a lot about a person’s lifestyle, point of view and education.

This contrasts with Hot Reading, which exploits prior, often secretly obtained, information (there is also Warm Reading, which makes use of verbal feedback obtained from the client during the reading).

Transformational Readings by Alan Jones

This ebook offers a framework for psychic readings. Starting with the idea that 'readings' need to be a dialogue between 'reader' and 'client', it explores the idea of 'Transformational Readings' - that is, readings which empower and move 'clients' forward.

The Framework covers aspects of esoteric symbolism drawn from a number of traditions; the use of Tarot cards, Crystals, Colours, Numbers and even Dominoes and cards used for testing ESP (Zenner Cards). Whilst the ebook is aimed at 'readers', 'clairvoyants' and 'psychic entertainers' it nevertheless explores the use of divinatory tools...

The Fools Journey by Alan Jones

The Fools Journey is a few thoughts about the history and development of The Tarot followed by a comprehensive workbook for exploration of tarot imagery. It is based upon Alan Jones' workshops on The Tarot for Self-Development.

The focus is on using the systems for self-exploration, as Alan believe this is where the real 'power' of the imagery and metaphor lies.

This ebook would be a useful companion to Alan's Transformational Readings ebook.

The Gaming Table Volume 2 by Andrew Steinmetz

This second volume of The Gaming Table is from a magician's point of view much more interesting. It includes a history of dice and playing cards including a fairly detailed description of how playing cards were made. It has a chapter on fortune telling with cards. And it also features a surprisingly good chapter on card tricks with explanations for four sleights (false shuffle, false cut, glide, card change) and 18 very nice card tricks. Among them we find a version of the prearranged deck and two person codes.

For people interested in Erdnase it is interesting to note that at the beginning of the...

Anthony Nelmar Albino & Devin Knight
The Ready Reader by Anthony Nelmar Albino & Devin Knight

This ebook is part of Forbidden Knowledge.

This little-known system is unique and one of the best systems every developed for cold reading a person. This system was first released by Nelmar in the late 30s. The cool thing about this system is that no two readings are alike, yet, they are spot on and very accurate. Yes, that means if people compare notes afterward, they both will have non-similar readings that apply to them almost 100%.

This is not possible if you are using one of the Nelson stock readings, as with that method the reader memorizes a stock reading that applies to almost anyone and repeats...

The Krahma System of Fortune Telling with Playing Cards by B. W. McCarron

Unlike most other fortune telling systems with playing cards, readings using this system are quick and snappy. The card layout is streamlined, yet the subject will be satisfied she received her money's worth since the outcome of the reading is dependent on her feelings and conscience. The reader will like it, too, since six to ten readings can be performed per hour. This system also provides an opportunity to recycle playing cards when they're no longer useful in the magic act. With the Krahma System, the more care-worn the deck, the better it will be accepted by the Subject as an instrument...

Barry Ray
Dice Reading by Barry Ray

Why dice?

Barry wanted a reading system that could be performed in the hands, sitting down or just walking around, that didn't require a table or a spread. That could be done inside or outside, regardless of the weather conditions. Something that didn't get soiled, torn, blown away or that water would ruin. So cards were out. Runes and stones fit the bill, but to get different coloured ones and of the same size isn't easy. Barry needed a uniform size and nothing too esoteric. Dice fit this description and are easily available.

Long before tarot and runes, soothsayers used to cast bones,...

Bob Cassidy
The Psychic Tarot by Bob Cassidy

In Appendix One of The Real Work of Cold Reading Bob included a cursory overview of a numerological system that could also be applied to the tarot or to regular playing cards. In The Psychic Tarot he has expanded on that and provided a detailed system of interpretation that will be accepted by those who have a general familiarity with the cards. As suggested in The Real Work of Cold Reading, the interpretations of the individual cards are derived - with the exception of the Major Arcana - by combining the general meanings assigned to the cards' suits with the numerological meanings assigned to their values. This is not only simpler and more practical...

As an executive coach in Nebraska's largest privately held company, my day is spent in back-to-back one-on-one sessions with managers.

This first in a series of scientific cold reading documents and videos explains the scientifically accepted and proven model I've used for decades to accelerate the process of getting to know someone and grow...

Scientific Cold Reading Intro by Dave Arch

Why would anyone purchase another eBook or watch another video on the subject of cold reading? What could possibly be new that hasn't already been said? I too would be skeptical. After you've read Webster, Dewey, Scryer and others, what else could there be? Drawing on my ten years as a Pastor and fourteen years as an Executive Coach (and zero years as a psychic), please, if you're at all curious, take a few moments and watch as I share my perspective on cold reading, how that perspective evolved, and then a quick overview of the model I'm recommending in my series of five eBooks soon to be released...
