Reading fortunes with regular playing cards?
Im curious how this is done. A friend of mine says she does it. She has mutual friends of ours who can vouch for her that she is accurate. She said she uses a book. How is this done with regular playing cards?? Ive heard of tarot but hmmmm!!!

We are going back to the Russian gypsies. They are used not just for guidelines, like doing a tarot spread, which there are many of, but also as meditation and divination. Cartomancy is very old fashioned and very reliable, in fact it is preferred depending on who you speak to and what it is you are looking for. It works in tandem and as the same in symbolism, however it is more intimate- it is up to the individual which path they choose. There are books, yes and if you are interested, I would ask your friend if she is willing to communicate. I am not sure if my words help or not, just relaying my experiences.

I read cards like this as well, its called Cartomancy. It helps if your a bit psychic as well but its not required. Here’s links to some sites with more information on the cards meanings.

Yep. It’s done. Try reading “The Secrets of Gypsy Fortune Telling” by Raymond Buckland. This technique is covered in there, along with many others.
There’s one with a layout, like Tarot Cards, and then there’s meanings for each individual card.
Are all tarot cards bad to mess with?
my niece wants to make some tarot-like cards to play harry potter with. would it be okay if shes just playing and pretending, and not actually reading them? we’re christian by the way!

Tarot-card reading is a complete fraud; they’re just pieces of paper with no magical powers and no special meaning. No one has any ability to predict the future with them, or anything else. So you can make up anything that you like.

They are 78 pieces of laminated paper, so unless you get a paper cut they are of no harm. I have studied them for over 20 years. Evil lies within the hearts & minds of humans not within pictured cards.
Have fun with your niece & make precious memories.

whether you are christian or something else, cards themselves will not put you in any danger. they do not have magical power or anything. cartomancy is done with playing cards. but dont we mess around with them by playing bridge and spades? tarot cards were made for playing games also. so it is really okay.
