Fortune Telling Cards (9)

November 29th, 2013 · 4 Comments


“Le Jeu du Destin Antique,” a deck of 32 cards, was published by Piatnik in Vienna.  I obtained my copy in Prague many years ago.  The ace of hearts, the booklet tells me, indicates “welcome encounters, joy.”

    It is true. It may also mean for you the home or a love letter. Yes this card is about Love and Happiness. It is a particularly favorable card that indicates troubles and problems lifting. I like the artwork though I wonder what the women are pointing to on the ground?

    I wondered that myself. A snake? A dish?

    This might be from a Lenormand deck

    It could be. It’s not credited as such, but the designs could have come from elsewhere.
