Card reading or cartomancy as it is known, has been a popular pastime for centuries. Most people associate this practice with Tarot cards, yet ordinary
playing cards can be used just as easily.

All forms of card reading are based on symbolism, the cards are used to represent archetypes, actual people, events or various aspects of life.

A full deck of playing cards consists of 52 cards, and there are the same number of weeks in a year.

The pack is divided into four suits, just as there are four seasons, four quarters and four elements.

The suits are of two colors, red or black, reflecting the essential duality of life itself, male and female, light and dark, positive and negative etc.
