English playing cards


I'm not sure if I'm in the right place here, but I was interested if anyone could tell me, send me, ... the meanings for the "fortune telling" with the English playing cards ie, a 32-card deck. I'd appreciate any information :-)

Basically there are various ways of fortune telling with playing cards. There are even some books available but best thing is to find your own way how cards work.

if you use the search feature (look up, right of center), and try the words 'cartomancy' and/or 'playing cards', you will find we have had many threads on just this topic, right here at aeclectic.

I've got the "Romany" interpretation book on playing cards - but to be honest I would just use the interpretation of the minor arcana - they are roughly the same. Obviously, hearts are cups, coins are diamonds, clubs are rods and spades are swords.
