I went to wordpress.com, and took a peek at the Freshly Pressed. A post about horoscopes caught my eye, so I decided to do a post all about fortune telling! (I know its not the same thing, but horoscopes remind me of fortune)
I went to http://www.ehow.com/how_2167990_tell-fortunes-playing-cards.html , which, like the URL suggests, teaches you how to tell fortunes with playing cards. I simplified them into these steps:
1. Get a deck of cards, and remove all the cards numbered 2-6.
2. Shuffle deck.
3. Separate cards into three piles.
Left pile= what was
Middle pile= what is
Right pile= what will be
Depending on the question, combine the cards you pick up into a fortune!
What each card can mean:
Hearts- feelings and emotions
Clubs- communication or paperwork (includes blogging, i think)
Diamonds- Money and prosperity
Spades- Gravity and location (not exactly sure what it means, but I tthink i get it)
One seven- a day
Two sevens- a week
Three sevens- a month
Four sevens- a year
Eights- Movement and change.
The number of eights chosen tells you how much change is involved
Eight of heart-love
Eight of club- letter or phone call
Eight of diamond- money
Eight of spade- a situation away from where you are now
If you get 2 or more nines, it is a change of mind. the more reds, the easier it will be to handle.
Nine of hearts- wish come true
Nine od clubs- communication with new information
Nine of diamonds- card of surprise
Nine of spades- argument or disagreement
Multiple tens= travel
Ten of hearts- party or entertainment
Ten of clubs- official building
Ten of diamonds- large amount of money
Ten of spades- something will happen in the afternoon
Mulitple jacks- someone you haven’t seen in a while. The more jacks, the longer its been.
Jack of hearts- A stranger or lover (or both)
Jack of clubs- friend
Jack of diamond- Untrustworthy
Jack of spades- Unmarried person
Multiple queens- gossip or spreading information
Queen of hearts- blonde woman
Queen of clubs- brunette woman
Queen of diamonds- fair woman, redheaded woman, or gray haired woman.
Queen of spades- dark woman
Multiple kings- any kind of legal or official document
King of hearts- blonde man
King of clubs- brown haired man
King of diamonds fair man, redheaded man, or gray haired man
King of spades- dark man
Multiple aces- decisions. The more reds, the easier it will be.
Ace of heart right-side-up– at home
Ace of heart upside down- away from home
Ace of club- communication
Ace of diamond- Gift or a card
Ace of spades- large town or city.
