Smile time - how to determine the cards/seasons


Hello - I am trying to figure out how to line up the seasons/time frames using regular playing cards. There are 13 weeks to a season - and the seasons are based on the lunar calandar.

So right now it is spring (3/20 - 6/20) or 91 days

Here is where I get confused....

Summer (6/21 - 9/22) summer solstice or 94 days

Fall (9/23 - 12/20) fall equinox or 88 days

Winter (12/21 -3/18) or 93 days

What am I doing wrong?? Thank you!!

For one thing, you are missing a couple of days between the end of winter and the start of spring.

Hmmmm


Thank you!

The starting dates of the seasons is determined by the solstice and equinox. Spring starts on the equinox (3/20), summer starts on the solstice (6/21) - Fall starts on the equinox (9/23 or 94 days). I'm trying to line up the 13 weeks/91 days of each season to a standard calendar (ace - king = 13 weeks in the season. Hearts = spring, Clubs = Summer, Spades = Autumn, Diamonds =Winter.) I'm pretty sure there is a simple answer - I just haven't figured it out.

Timing Events


Here is a link to an article about "Poor Boy's Tarot."
http://www.carolinaconjure.com/playing-cards.html
At the bottom of the page is a paragraph about "Timing Events with Playing Cards."
This might be of some help to you about corresponding seasons and weeks with the cards.
