Cartomancy, the art of fortune telling with modern playing cards, is rooted in Tarot reading. One of the differences in this art is the special meaning of certain combinations of cards when dealt together. The nine and eight of the different colors are part of those cards with combined meanings. Get to know these meanings and what they can explain to you.
Cartomancy derived from the Tarot
The deck of tarot has been used to determine fortunes since ancient times. These games were originally handcrafted, with the history of their symbolism passed down from generation to generation. With the advent of printing, card games have become more common for the average person. They also got simpler, with the abandonment of the major Arcana of the Tarot, with the exception of the fool or the joker. However, people still wished they could read fortunes with the new decks. Readers have created new meanings by taking inspiration from tarot combinations and modifying them to accommodate the new combinations. Additional meanings have been added to card combinations to help replace missing Major Arcana. And finally, the printers gathered these meanings and published them, leaving them for us in modern times. The meanings given below are taken from these early collected sources.
Nine in combinations
The Nine of Hearts itself is the “wish” card, designed to make dreams come true. However, when dealt alongside a bad luck card, these dreams will be held up by temporary feuds and setbacks. And when the Nine of Hearts falls next to the Five of Spades in a reading, it predicts loss of face and status for the customer. The Nine of Clubs in a reading when dealt with alone predicts your friends will be stubborn and hold you back. However, when it comes to the Eight of Hearts, it predicts mirth and happiness instead. Your friends will gladly help you in your endeavors. The nine of diamonds, when dealt with alone, predicts a surprise regarding money matters. However, when dealt with a Jack, Queen, or King of any color, he predicts failure due to lack of focus or distractions. And, when the Nine of Diamonds falls next to the Eight of Spades, it announces a bitter dispute for the customer. The Nine of Spades in itself predicts general bad luck for the client. However, when he falls next to the Seven of Diamonds, he instead predicts a serious loss of money.
Eight in combinations
The Eight of Hearts by itself predicts invitations and parties, while the Eight of Diamonds by itself predicts either a late marriage or a journey into a new relationship. However, when these two cards fall together in a reading, they predict a large dowry from a woman in marriage somehow tied to the client. And when the Eight of Hearts is dealt with the Five of Hearts, it predicts that a gift of Jewelry will either be given or received by the customer. The Eight of Diamonds when dealt with the Five of Hearts predicts a gift of money to be given or received instead. The eight of spades, when dealt on its own, signals a warning of problems or disappointments to come. And when that card is dealt directly to the right of the customer card in the layout, it's a clear call to abandon your current plans and look for another path.
Other lower card combinations
The Four of Hearts, when dealt with on its own, predicts many changes and delays in your plans. However, if he is treated next to a King, Queen, or Jack, he predicts that the client will have many love stories at home. ;to come up. The Four of Clubs, when handled on their own, results in a drop in customer fortunes. However, when the Four stumbles next to a King, Queen, or Jack of any costume, it predicts loss or injustice to the customer. The Two of Clubs treated by themselves predicts disappointments, and the Two of Diamonds, when treated by themselves, calls for a serious romance. However, when these two cards are dealt together, their meaning changes; they predict an unexpected message, the meaning of which can be good or bad.
