Fortune Telling Cards

Are Fortune Telling Cards for Real?

As explained above, these cards are essentially simplified form of the Tarot, 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 deck, 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 PowerFortunes Deck have to say!

Layouts of the PowerFortunes Deck

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.

About Divination and Cartomancy

Divination 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 readings, but other types of cards such as these and even the regular, 52 card playing cards deck, can be used for divinatory purposes.

Interpreting the Tarot

From the 1790s with, the advent of Etteilla's deck, tarot card design has been modified specifically to reflect meanings. Tarot 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 styles of tarot packs, with considerable variation from pack to pack. Manya packs also have more than the traditional 78 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 the year 1487.
