actually, i would agree with that, grizz. despite what i said, in theory, it would be possible to predetermine which cards would mean children, or a number of children... perhaps taking out all the court cards and using only the major and minor numbered cards, pick a card and see what number is on it. conversely, then, you could take the court cards that you seperated and draw one card for each "child" that the numbered card told you were going to have, to see if it's male of female, but that would only work if you an equal distribution of male female cards.
i guess in theory it could work, but is there a "spread" which you could read normally and find the answers to the questions you seek, i still don't think so. you would have to greatly alter the process as has been stated. and perhaps someone will see this who has done a similar type reading and tell you how they did it?
