Divination by the use of playing cards is one of the oldest forms of cartomancy known. It used one of the simplest tools that was readily available at the time and could be found in almost any household. In fact, my Great Granny used this type of divination herself, and after all those years, her cards came into my care. I used to hear stories from when my Mom and her siblings were growing up, how Granny would read those cards at the kitchen table. Everyone seemed to be afraid of her deck of cards, and it seemed to be a hush-hush kind of thing that didn't get discussed. She kept them in a tobacco tin, where I still keep them safely today.
The origins of using playing cards for divination cannot be pinpointed to just one area/location. It has been used throughout the years in Appalachian and Ozark folk traditions and practices, and more southern areas of the U.S., as well as those from other countries. And at some point, it has also found its way into Hoodoo. Hoodoo is a unique eclectic practice all on its own, and is a wonderful melting pot, a mixture of many other traditions including African, Haitian, and others and utilizes the best of the best methods, what is tried and true, and essentially what works. Getting back down to the basics, the roots and origins.
Most country folk at one time or another have used some form of divination. And fortune telling with playing cards is one of them. Many folks would have different meanings for each of the cards because it was largely based on good ol' intuition or teachings learned from elders. Unfortunately, the skill was not always passed down, or a guide written down for posterity. The reason? Folks liked to keep their business to themselves and keep their own secrets.
This listing is for a three card reading. One question/circumstance only, please, so that I may focus on the main issue for which you need guidance or answers.
If you wish to provide a brief summary of your situation, you may do so either in the Comments section when you purchase the reading, or email me afterwards. It would also be helpful to have your (or the person the reading pertains to) full name and date of birth. Additionally, if you would like to provide me with a photo via email (Please be sure to include your order number), that is also helpful because I am an empath and can sometimes intuitively read a lot in photos.
If you do not have a specific question, I will provide you with a general reading based on the cards.
All readings are done via email, and you will receive a PDF document with photos and interpretation. Please try to limit your questions about the reading after it is provided, because I will provide you with all available interpretation to the best of my abilities. Readers can only see so much in the cards, and a card reading is essentially a snapshot of what the current situation looks like now and how it can possibly turn out if things stay their course and nothing changes. We, as human beings, are responsible for our own spiritual well-being, as well as how our actions affect our lives. Readings are meant to provide guidance and insight, but are not to be used as a substitute for medical, psychological, legal, or any other professional advice.
If you would like my opinion or recommendations on spell or ritual services to help with your situation, need, or goal, I do offer email consultations based on my experience, skill in my craft, and my own professional opinion.
All readings are on a first come, first served basis, just as spell/ritual services.
