If anyone was wondering ... events conspired to make me act on Friday, which was exactly the 3 weeks from when I did Amanda's method and got '3 weeks'. We were mistaken to doubt it folks!
Somehow it being a couple of days into both the new moon, and the half-year that starts with the solstice, all seems appropriate.
As an aside, I have given up reversals for the last couple of weeks. It's simpler but at the moment I need more pointers as to whether the Star, for example, is about feeling inspired or needing to seek inspiration. I think I'll go back to them for a bit, until I'm expert(!) enough not to!
Hey, thank you for the update, I'm glad my method worked for you!
When reading without reversals, it becomes more important to check out the surrounding cards. If you need any help just ask, because I first learned tarot with reversals and didn't even try uprights-only until much later... so I will be happy to help any way I can.
