Reading Your Future in the Cards
As a teenager, I came across an old fortune-telling magazine that featured a divination method using a regular deck of playing cards. This method appealed to me because the cards were related to Astrology.
In fact, the four suits were associated with the four elements Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. Long before people used cards to play games, they were used to foretell the future. In fact, playing cards were invented for divination purposes.
Although there are different ways to approach cartomancy, we will show you a simple method and lay out the basic meanings attached to each playing card below. Once you know the basic meanings of the playing cards, you can choose a spread that is right for you. First things first, the suits Hearts, Clubs, Spades, and Diamonds are associated with the four elements, as follows:. Ace of Hearts Love and happiness. The home, a love letter. This card is a particularly favorable card that indicates troubles and problems lifting.
