Help with a three card reading for a novel
I'm writing a novel and I want to have a scene where one character reads another's tarot. The person who the reading is for is hearing voices and having hallucinations. He is about to have a psychotic episode and possibly end up in an alternate universe. He believes there's a universal hive mind of aliens communicating with him. The reason he's doing the tarot is because he wants to make sense of what's happening.
I was wondering what three card reading would portent what's about to happen to the character. I know three card readings are about the past, the present and the future. I'm thinking of using three cards just for brevity, but if anyone thinks a longer reading would be better with more detail I might go with that.
I'm going to try do my own research, but thought I'd ask a quick question here. Thanks!
