Cartomancy and the Suits – Tarot reading With A Modern Card Deck


Cartmonancy is the art of reading someone's fortune with a modern deck of cards. One of the main elements of this divination art is the predominant costume found in a reading. See what the four costumes; Hearts, clubs, diamonds, and spades predict in terms of fortune and points of interest.

Cartmonancy; from tarot cards to playing cards

Just as playing cards evolved from the deck of tarot, so cartomancy developed from the reading of tarot. In the absence of the Major Arcana Cards and the Four Pages or Minor Arcana Lords, the Playing Cards make for easier reading, but can still provide us with a facilitating overview. In addition, learning to read with normal playing cards is easier and the material is easy to acquire. Other aspects of the layout for a reading, gain importance in the absence of the large arcane cards. One of those aspects is the presence of a dominant costume, where there is a greater number of hearts or spades than the other three costumes in the reading. The costumes, as well as what they mean when they dominate a reading are shown below.

Hearts – Love and Home Life

Hearts as the dominant costume in a reading predict overall good fortune. They indicate that the reading will focus on your emotions and your domestic life. Love, passion, marriage, and family all fall under the influence of this costume. Hearts also represent true friendship and are a good omen for successfully achieving your dreams.

Clubs – Money and Business

Clubs, as the dominant costume in a reading, indicate that a reading relates to business and money. They can indicate either great success, loyalty, and financial comfort or their opposite: failure, betrayal, and financial trouble. It all depends on the rest of the reading.

Diamonds – Work and world

Diamonds as the dominant color in a reading indicate that outside forces are at play. They indicate that outside influences must be addressed and overcome in order to make your dreams come true. This costume predicts that wrestling and striving is in your future.

Spades – Dangers and bad luck

The pikes as the dominant costume in a reading are a warning of danger to come. This is a trial that predicts loss, suffering, betrayal and failure unless these warnings are directed and acted upon. Trouble in spades is really an accurate saying.
