How do Fortune Telling Card Readings differ from Tarot Card Readings?
Tarot readings require the Tarot reader to establish a connection with his or her deck, through which the Tarot reader can divine the meanings of the cards, as they lie in a layout for a particular question. Divining the correct meaning from the Tarot cards requires
a great deal of practice and skill, also the the Tarot reader must be experienced enough to assign the correct meaning to a card, relative to it's position.
Although these 'Fortune Telling Cards' are derived from the Tarot and therefore closely associated with them, they are much easier to read.
The Power Fortunes’ Pack (some people prefer to say 'Deck'), consists of thirty two titled cards, with pictorial descriptions, which explain the different meanings that a card can have relative to it's
position. Therefore, the reader simply has to follow the instructions and read the meanings of the cards, without consciously applying their divinatory ability, whilst making a reading. The pictorial representations on each card help the reader to establish a
psychic connection with cards.
In addition to this, there are the obvious differences of appearance and number of cards, as the Tarot deck usually contains 78 cards or more cards, while the Fortune Telling Deck contains 32 cards.
Are Fortune Telling Cards for Real?
As explained above, these Fortune Telling Cards are essentially simplified Tarot cards, that anyone can use to predict the future.
Reason tells that the 'Cards' are merely printed pieces of cardboard. It would be quite absurd for us to expect them to convey anything intelligible, let alone the future.
However, the fact of the matter is, all those who come into contact with our fortune telling cards, soon discover that the cards inexplicably reveal present and future events in their lives. In fact,
so uncanny and compelling are these revelations, that they refuse to be explained away as matters of sheer coincidence. See ‘Real Life Accounts’, to find out what users of the fortune telling cards have to say!
Layouts of the Power Fortunes Fortune Telling Cards
Each deck comes with a two page set of instructions and after only a couple of readings you'll be able to interpret the cards without having to refer to the instructions.
Predictions are made through three simple layouts. In the first layout a question posed by the enquirer is
answered by selecting thirteen cards from the pack. The enquirer can then seek further information on any five of the selected thirteen, by choosing five more cards from the remaining pile. This form
of divination is carried one step further and the thoughts and desires, the household and the fate in general of the enquirer is read from the eighteen selected cards.
The third layout is perhaps the most interesting and allows the enquirer to learn if particular wish or desire
will be realised in the future. This is achieved simply by shuffling the deck and laying out nine cards in a particular spread. If the 'Nine of Hearts' appears, the wish
will be realised.
is the practice of interpreting symbols to predict the future. This can be accomplished through many different ways, as explained in detail on our 'Fortune Telling
' page. The practice of using cards as divination tools is known as, 'Cartomancy
'. Most people recognise cartomancy in the form of tarot card readings, but other types of cards such as these fortune telling cards and even the play cards that you find in a regular 52 card deck, can be used for fortune telling purposes.
Interpreting Tarot Cards
From the 1790s with, the advent of Etteilla's deck, tarot card
design has been modified specifically to reflect meanings. Tarot card reading
is a form of occult and tarot cards
are sometimes referred to as the ‘Spiritual Card’ deck. Originating
in Italy in the 1400s, today there are hundreds of different tarot decks
in existence, with considerable variation from deck to deck, with some having upto 97 cards. Needless to say the more cards you have to deal with, the harder it becomes to decipher their meanings. Although most people think only of games when they see a regular deck of playing cards, it is known that ordinary playing cards have been connected with divination from as early as 1487.
