Your deck of playing cards is not just for fun games such as blackjack, poker, solitaire, and go fish. Playing cards can also be used as powerful tools for fortune-telling, a form of divination known as cartomancy. Playing card readings spread throughout Europe in the 14th century and were popularized by the famous fortune-teller, Mlle Lenormand who would give psychic readings to the French court of Napoleon in 18th century France. Cartomancy has now been adopted by Western spiritual practitioners.
If you are familiar with tarot, you may be aware of how intricate each card is; there are a myriad of ways you can interpret each card and their meanings are influenced by their relationship to surrounding cards in a spread. Because of this, it can feel incredibly overwhelming for new cartomancers to learn all the possible meanings of the cards. That is why we have compiled detailed guides to the playing cards.
