[Free eBook] Fortune-Telling by Cards

Spread the love

By P. R. S. Foli

Divination with cards has been practiced for many centuries. There are numerous methods for telling fortunes, but the most common is to use a standard deck of playing cards. The meanings of the cards vary depending on which culture you consult, but there are some universal card reading techniques.

The book Fortune-Telling by Cards by P. R. S. Foli is a comprehensive guide to understanding and using playing cards for divination purposes. The author explains in detail how to interpret the meanings of the cards’ suits, numbers, and pictures, as well as how to lay them out in traditional spreads like the Celtic Cross. He also includes information on other cultures’ card reading techniques, such as the Chinese system of Wan Zhuang Shui.

According to Foli, the basis for card reading is that each suit represents a different aspect of human life – love, money, work, and so on – and that the position of the cards within the spread (how they are laid out) can provide clues as to what is going on in a person’s life at any given time. For example, if someone inquires about their love life and you lay out a spread with all four suits represented, but the majority of cards are from the suit representing love, you can safely assume that love is currently playing a significant role in their life.

Foli describes a variety of spreads that can be used for a variety of purposes, ranging from simple three-card spreads designed to answer specific questions to more complex ten-card spreads that provide a more detailed overview of a person’s current situation. He also explains how to interpret the meanings of each position in the spread, such as whether a particular card represents good or bad news depending on its orientation (whether it is upside down or right side up).

Foli’s book not only provides an accessible introduction to card reading, but it also contains some fascinating insights into the history and symbolism of tarot cards. He explains how traditional playing cards evolved from earlier divination decks used by medieval gypsies, and how tarot symbolism frequently reflects archetypal themes found in myths and legends from all over the world. Even if you have no intention of ever picking up a deck of tarot cards, this makes for interesting reading!

If you want to learn how to read fortunes with playing cards, The art of fortune-telling by cards is an excellent resource that will teach you everything you need to know about this fascinating subject!
