  • You probably have at least a nodding acquaintance with the Tarot. However, with the art of Cartomancy readers use regular playing cards as a method of divining the future. Each suit and each card has a general meaning.

By relying on correct training, earned experience, and guided by intuition, a non-psychic may become a skilled cartomancer. Of course, when psychics read and interpret the cards, answers and insights are potentially more meaningful.

If you feel an affinity to the cards, designate a deck solely for divination. Don’t let other people handle or shuffle them. Wrap your cartomancy deck in a silk or velvet cloth or store it in a wooden box for protection against negative energy.

There is more to learn about Cartomancy than just memorizing card meanings. Start with a simple guidebook for reading playing cards. Like anything new, practice is the key to successful attainment.

Where did Cartomancy begin?

  • Research indicates that regular playing cards originated in China, during the 9th century, subsequent to their invention of the “dotted card” (cardstock numbered with black or red dots). Contemporary decks of cards used by the Chinese maintained the suit of coins and strings of coins, probably inspired by Mah Jong’s bamboos and circles.  Playing cards then mushroomed to India and on to the Middle East. But it was during the 14th century, when Gypsy travelers swept across Europe telling fortunes with playing cards, that cartomancy reading truly began. 

What do the different suits of cards mean?

  • Modern decks consist of four suits, which correspond to the astrological elements – hearts symbolize water, spades signify air, diamonds embody the earth and clubs denote fire. Also, each suit has a more down-to-earth meaning. Hearts are all about love and considered the good luck suit. Spades can forewarn about bad luck, life challenges and deceitful people. Diamonds speak to materiality, abundance, marriage and career. Clubs generally reveal success, although according to surrounding cards, they can point to failure and financial challenges.
