INTRODUCTION The interpretation of each Playing card are merely reminders. As you get to know the Cards and its underlying principles, you will leave those reminders behind and follow a much more intuitive path, rather than slavishly sticking to the interpretations given elsewhere. When reading the cards either for yourself or another person, you need to be aware of a certain responsibility, since your interpretations might have a powerful suggestive influence. In addition, the fears and desires we all have create strong subconscious expectations which could be painfully destroyed by just a few words. The responsible interpreter will practice detachment, for only a detached mind can look at Tarot results without prejudice, from a distant height so to speak, unperturbed by the outcome
What qualities required to read the cards successfully: The good card-reader should not exaggerate and say 'very lucky' when the card only means 'lucky', nor should a reader say 'extremely dangerous' when 'dangerous' is sufficiently enough. The card-reader must be sincere. Starting to read the card the reader should empty the mind of all thoughts, except those required to explain each card correctly and to interpret its message with regard to the cards around it, which will confirm or modify its meaning. To tell fortune successfully the card-reader must be entirely selfless. The self will interrupt correct prediction. The card-reader must be sympathetic. He or she must never claim that a reading is bad, it may frighten the subject unnecessarily. There is no such thing as bad fortune as the future is not set. The card is there to guide the inquirer into the right directions, to change the future for the better. A reader should choose their words carefully, e.g.: 'avoid that person'; do not keep this engagement', 'do not let yourself get entangled with these matters or with those people,' 'take care in that situation.'
Sincerity and sympathy are not incompatible. Cards can only tell what is known, although neither the subject nor the card-reader may actually be aware of it. Things are already sure to happen in the future because of something that has been said, done, or that has happened in the past; or because of something that is now happening though we may have no knowledge of it. Note that the truth and usefulness of divination by cards depends on the intelligence, sincerity, and sympathy of the subject also. The subject who gives concentration, honesty, and love equal to that of the earnest card-reader, will be guided and helped.
The Picture Cards Kings are men of weight – older men. Queens are women and girls. Jacks are young, unmarried men.
The Suits The subject must identify each Picture Card, after choosing 'herself' or 'himself' according to sex and coloring. But these Picture Cards (or Court Cards) have additional meanings in certain combinations and under certain conditions. It is only necessary, for the present, to realize that Spades represent trouble, anxieties, sorrows and changes that cannot be helped or hindered. Clubs mean success which has been earned or deserved. Hearts mean love, affection, company, socializing, and Diamonds stand for money, business and financial affairs in general. Diamonds and Spades are 'chancy' suits; they stand for fated things, whether good or evil. Hearts represent things that can be altered by goodwill and sympathy. Clubs correspond to matters that, with some effort, may well be changed for the better.
The Cards Reversed Some cards have a right way up and a reversed way. However, this is only the case with the Sevens and some odd numbers when you are using other playing cards than we have included here. Many designs are so ornate and intricately patterned that no difference can be seen, whichever way the cards come into your hand. If you are using a playing card that you cannot tell which is upside or down, it is wise to put an 'R' on the top left hand corner of each card after turning the pack the wrong way up, if you can. (You can also purchase printable playing cards, at TAROTPDF.COM: http://tarotpdf.com/DVDGYPSY-PLAYING-CARD.html) otherwise you devise your own 'reversed' way, excepting the Sevens. If you like the cards at tarotpdf.com included with the meanings, you can cut them out and stick it onto a hard back. You can than use it for the specific reason of predicting the future with it. The meaning of each playing card is considerably modified if and when it is, 'reversed'. In some cases it is altered entirely (unlike the tarot card, where the meaning will be the same but it's reversed). Some card-readers do not recognize different meanings in the cards when they are 'reversed.' But the seer who wants to tell of subtle shades of meanings will do so from the first.
Reading the Cards Before reading the cards you should get familiar with them, get to know the pictures, shuffle your cards a lot so they absorb your energy and become uniquely yours. You should not allow others to play with them or anyone else to read them. Once the pack of Card is individual to you, you can start to practice reading them. When reading tarot or playing card it is very important to keep in mind the question we want the answer for.
Playing Card and the Tarot Despite of the belief that playing card is different then tarot, they are more closely related then previously thought. To explain the connection of playing card and tarot card, we should investigate the history behind them. The first Tarot cards have been around since the 1370's, used as playing cards in Europe. These earliest decks were hand painted art works which were expensive and could only be afforded by wealthy patrons. But as demand increased, new and cheaper methods of production were discovered so that playing cards became available for everyone, specially with the start of the printing machines. 9
The Earliest card found in Germany and not in Italy as most people believe as the origin of the tarot. This handmade deck found in castle Ambras (Tirol) together with Hofamterspiel reprinted by "Edition Leipzig" in 1971 for Heimeran (Munich). The origin of tarot cards is not exactly determinable, but it seems most likely that the early Tarot pointing to Gypsy origin and was an antecedent to the simpler decks of playing cards. One cannot forget to mention the use of cards for the purpose of divination. The first use of cards to tell the future was in the 1480's in Germany. One shuffled a deck of customary playing cards, drew one, and then consulted the book to determine one's fate. It was only later when Court de Gebelin tried to prove an Egyptian origin to the Tarot that people began viewing them as so magical, and attributed to them the ability to tell the future. Ironically, the first cards extant in Europe, the Tarrochi which become the ancestor to the modern Tarot, was used only for playing games, yet now the modern Tarot is used nearly exclusively for the purpose of meditation and divination.
It was the simplified playing card deck that was first used for divination, yet now it is nearly exclusively used for playing games. Although faced with a few tough tangles in the course of seeking the origin of playing cards and Tarot in all the tapestry of time, every card is a work of art. In seeking the origin of playing cards, one also seeks the origin of an entire art form. This art form seems to be known throughout the world; its widespread appeal due to the fact that it is functional art. Unlike many forms of art contemporary is due to the existence of Gypsy card's appeal and was created for the sole purpose so that it could be enjoyed by anyone. The nobility could have fine decks hand-painted for their use, the commoner folk could only afford less expensive woodblock printed decks, and even faithful clergymen could attach moral significance and endorse the use of cards. Perhaps playing cards and Tarot, with their tangled thread of history, can help unravel the mystery of the future as the Fates weave the tapestry of time. The Rider Waite type of tarot card is based on playing cards, but it is mixed with witchcraft symbolism. This is where Rider Waite and Gypsy Card differ, Gypsy cards and Playing Cards don't have witchcraft symbolism attached or hidden within its images, but it remained faithful to it's original form to predict the future.
In this book we shell reveal the close relationship of playing card, tarot and Gypsy tarot meaning and their close relationship. Where the meaning differ it will be revealed here. Every Card, Tarot Card, Playing card and Gypsy cards are all based on the same meaning, however they will differ according to their image symbolism and the way you will interpret these images, or rather what part of the image stands out for you. This will slightly modify the meaning of each cards. With playing cards tarot reading is more straight forward as the images are universal and there is no image symbolism.
