Reading with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Part 1

The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards is a strange little deck. It’s been described elsewhere as “deviant.” “Quirky” might be another accurate description. I purchased this deck back in 2009, threw a handful of spreads with it and promptly relegated it to some storage container or another.

Curiously, earlier this week, out of nowhere, an image of this deck’s garish orange box popped into my mind. I brushed it off and went about my business. As the day progressed, however, I kept seeing images of the cards — or least what I could remember of them — and that stick-out-like-a-sore-thumb orange box. The cards seemed to be begging me to locate them and throw a spread or two. Finally, tired of being nagged, I started looking for them.

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

Do I really need to tell you how much time I spent annoying myself half to death searching all the usual places I stash cards before I finally found them, buried beneath and behind various other decks on a shelf I normally don’t pay much attention to?

Let’s just say it was more than a minute…

After finding them and then browsing through and tossing aside the lamest excuse for a LWB (Little White Book) that I’ve ever seen, I decided to ease back into a relationship with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards by asking a simple question: “Can I Substitute You for Regular Playing Cards?” My underlying and unspoken question was “Do You Want to Work with Me?”

“Can I Substitute You for Regular Playing Cards? (Do You Want to Work with Me?)”

Just from looking at the pictures, even a beginning card reader can see it looks like the start of a happy and fruitful relationship. 🙂

The spread consists of three cards, color sequence RED-BLACK-RED and a RED base card. The preponderance of RED cards augers a “yes” answer to the question(s). To summarize, I can expect that working with the cards will be satisfying and rewarding (Heart – Club – Heart – Diamond).

Specifically, the cards read, “YES, you can read us as playing cards and YES, we will work with you (Hand in Hand). The relationship between us will grow and flourish (Tree) and be successful (House).” The base card, Dog, shows the cards will be friendly and supportive, as well as rewarding (Diamond).

I was delighted at the reading and wanted to use the cards again as soon as possible. I didn’t have to wait long. Male X’s wife gave me an update on his ongoing employment saga and I decided to cast an Overview Spread using the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards to gain insight into this recent development.

I’ll tell you how that went in Part 2.

To be continued…

  1. I just purchased these cards two days ago and haven’t been able to put them down. They’ve been spot on almost every time. I find myself enjoying them more than tarot 🙂

  2. Just got these cards love them But I’ve missed placed the instructions does anyone know where I could find a print out on the net
    thank you

    1. Hello Juanita,

      I’m not aware of the Gypsy Witch instructions being available online. The LWB (Little White Book) provides two layouts, “The Short Reading” and the “Long Reading,” both which seem to be variations of Lenormand tableaus. You could try contacting U.S. Games Systems, Inc. Perhaps they would agree to email you the information.

      Blessings,
      Mary Hawkins
