How long into the future is the Near Future position



  • Hi! I've done a bunch of readings that have a Near Future position but "near" is such a subjective term. I was wondering if someone could enlighten me on how far in the future "near" is in the tarot? Is it a few days? A few weeks? A few months? Is it dependent on the number represented in the card? And if so, does that number represent days/weeks/months, etc?

    Thanks so much!



  • Hello hintofkizzle,

    In general, Pentacles are associated with Winter, Swords with Spring, Wands with Summer, and Cups with Autumn. So if you drew a card in the suit of Swords, you would expect those events to unfold sometime in the Spring. As for the time frame associated with the 'near future' card, I have always thought around 3-4 weeks.

    Hope this helps you!
