Psychic Readings – Psychic Readings Using Tarot Or Cartomancy

Psychics not only use the tarot cards but also plain playing cards. In psychic readings it is called Cartomancy and it does what the tarot cards do, i.e. the cards are used to read emotions. Around the 14th century, Cartomancy began with the introduction of playing cards. Many believe that the playing cards should never be used for reasons other than readings and that they are touched only by the Cartomancer, or the owner of that deck of cards.

Cartomancy became the most popular way of telling people’s fortunes from the 18th century and on. Using a standard deck of playing cards, the fortune teller uses all 52 cards in the deck. In France, the piquet deck, which contains 32 playing cards, is used for Cartomancy readings. In this case, the confront cards, the aces, and the cards 7s by 10s keep, as the 2s by 6s are removed.

Each suit has a meaning, in relation to the tarot cards as follows:

  • Clubs are equal to the wands which represent strength.
  • Spades are equal to the swords, which represent intellect.
  • Hearts are equal to the cups, which represent feelings.
  • Diamonds are equal to the coins, which represent health or material matters

Up until recently, standard playing cards which were used in Cartomancy have taken second place to tarot cards in psychic readings. The tarot deck is made up of the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana has 21 trump cards and a Fool card, while the Minor Arcana contains 56 cards. The Minor Arcana is made up of four suits, each containing a king, a queen, a knight, and page, in addition as the pip cards which are numbered from one to 10.
