Pick three cards.
Upright cards signify yes and reversed cards, no. The middle card counts twice which means you can have a tie.
If there is a tie:
a) the outcome is not yet determined,
b) your best interests are not served by an answer at this time, or
c) your question is not clearly stated.
After obtaining your yes/no answer, read each card according to a basic timeline in which the center card is the present, the card(s) to the left depict the past, and the card(s) to the right, the future.
