These exercises presume you have the Sibilla della Zingara deck which is the un-numbered, un-suited Sibilla deck, and either one of or both the Vera Sibilla Italiana and the Sibilla Indovina decks.
- Try using each deck as an omen-for-the-day deck for the period of two weeks to one month each. It can be a one-card draw, or a three-card spread for the day. Of course, keep a log of your readings and what transpired for that day. Then look at your notes at the end of the testing period and do an assessment. Did one deck reliably give you more-accurate answers than the other(s)? Did you ‘connect’ with one of the decks than the other(s)?
- Do a six-card Hungarian Method reading with both or all three decks, asking the same question of each. What were the similarities among the two or three readings? What were the differences?
- Do a nine-card spread with both or all three decks, asking the same question of each. What were the similarities? What were the differences?
- Given your experience with these decks, would you use one over the other two, or would you use more than one of these decks, but under different circumstances?
- EXTRA CREDIT: do a grand tableau spread with the Sibilla Indovina deck. Compare and contrast your results with a grand tableau using the LeNormand and Kipper decks. How are they all the same? How does the Sibilla Indovina deck differ from the other two decks? In your opinion, does any one of these three decks work better with the grand tableau spread than the other two, or do they all have different strengths?
