Cartmonancy is the art of reading someone’s fortune with a modern deck of playing cards. One of the primary elements of this divination art is the predominant suit found in a reading. See what the four suits; Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds, and Spades predict in terms of your fortune and areas of interest.
Cartmonancy; from Tarot Cards to Playing Cards
Just as playing cards evolved from the Tarot deck, Cartomancy developed from Tarot reading. Lacking the cards of the Major Arcana, and the four pages or lords from the Minor arcana, playing cards give a simpler reading, but can still provide us with facilitating insight. Also, learning to do a reading with normal playing cards is easier, and the materials are easy to acquire. Other aspects of the layout for a reading, gain significance in the absence of the major arcane cards. One of these aspects is the presence of a dominant suit, where there are a greater number of Hearts or Spades, than the other three suits in the reading. The suits, as well as what they mean when they dominate a reading are shown below.
Hearts – Love and Home Life
Hearts as the dominant suit in a reading predict overall good fortune. They indicate that the reading will predominantly deal with your emotions and domestic life. Love, passion, marriage, and family all fall under the influence of this suit. Hearts also stand for true friendship, and bode well for being successful in realizing your dreams.
Clubs – Money and business matters
Clubs as the dominant suit in a reading indicate that a reading relates to business and money matters. They can point to either great success, loyalty, and financial comfort, or their opposite: failure, betrayal, and financial troubles. It all depends on the rest of the reading.
Diamonds – Work and the World
Diamonds as the dominant suit in a reading indicate that outside forces are in play. They indicate that outside influences must be dealt with and overcome in order to realize your dreams. This suit predicts that struggle and effort are in your future.
Spades – Dangers and Mis-fortune
Spades as the dominant suit in a reading are a warning of danger ahead. This is a suit which predicts loss, suffering, treachery, and failure unless these warnings are headed and acted upon. Trouble in spades is truly an accurate saying.
