Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Correctly Predict Birth of Baby

The more you practice with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards the easier it will become for you to intuitively realize when “system jumping” may be called for. The reading I’ll discuss in today’s post is a powerful example of how this works. I’ll show you the spread, but first, a little background:

The Back Story

Grandson #3’s due date was exactly one week ago. Except he was born exactly two weeks ago. Exactly one day after the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards said he’d arrive…

********************************

Daughter #2 had discovered she was pregnant in late September. Naturally, her first question to her astrologer – tarot card reading mother was “What am I having? A boy or a girl?”

I decided to cast a horary astrology chart (a chart based on the date, time and place of the question) to get the answer. The chart strongly suggested “male.”

Daughter #2, who already had a boy and was not-so-secretly wanting a girl, was skeptical. She asked if I could do another chart. I put her off, explaining it was “too soon” to ask the same question again. Several weeks later, however, after she’d scheduled her 20-week sonogram, I couldn’t help but take a look at the event chart calculated for the date, time and place of this procedure. Once again, this second chart strongly suggested “male.”

Both astrology charts were confirmed as accurate when the sonogram results came in: Daughter #2 was definitely having a boy! The doctor gave a due date of May 22nd. The pregnancy progressed smoothly and before we knew it, it was May…

Fast Forward

By early May, everyone in the family was baby-focused. Baby, baby, baby. When would he get here? Daughter #2 expected me to know. I gave her some “probable birth windows” based on Moon transits to her natal chart, but protested I couldn’t really get more specific than that.

One “birth window” came and went and we were in the middle of the second one with no indications that labor was about to commence. On the morning before Grandson #3 was born, having had resigned myself to the probability that he’d be coming later rather than sooner, I poured a cup of coffee and sat down to do my daily card draw. I had nothing on my mind. No questions. No nagging concerns. I selected the Gypsy Witch cards on a whim and asked one of my usual generic questions: “Heads up/ need to know/ will happen.”

Q: Heads Up/ Need to Know/ Will Happen

I almost fell out of my chair.

I immediately grasped the cards’ message, “Baby is coming!”, before figuring it out logically from examining the cards that made up the spread. In retrospect, I think the first clue was the playing card insets and images on 21 Stork and 3 House. I’ll get to that shortly.

You can see from the graphics above, I chose to use a basic Lenormand Line of 5, with the addition of the Base Card (the bottom card of the shuffled deck), which is my usual practice. I typically consider the central, or hinge, card first, in conjunction with the Base Card, to give an overall feel on the theme of the reading. Because 46 Railroad is not a traditional Lenormand card, I had to consider the “fortune” inscribed thereon:

“The railroad forecasts a long journey; if near 44 a serious accident; if near 29 a robbery.”

But the playing card insets on 46 Railroad and 3 House told another story: a benefit given or received (2 of Clubs); a male loved one (6 of Hearts).

Additionally, the playing card inset on 21 Stork (an image associated with childbirth in and of itself) is 7 of Hearts which is the “second chance,” “second time around” or “second occurrence” card. I read 7 of Hearts + 6 of Hearts as “second male loved one” (my daughter’s second baby, a boy) being delivered (Stork) and coming home (House).

Noting that Mice + Rod (Whip) could symbolize physical exertion or exhaustion and 6 of Spades + 10 of Spades could literally refer to “water breaking,” not to mention that Gypsy Witch 45 Order actually contains the word ‘labor’ in its “fortune,” the meaning of the cards couldn’t seem clearer. In this particular card spread, 46 Railroad, the “long journey,” was the nine months of pregnancy itself, which was ending, as indicated by labor pains (Mice, Rod, Order). The Stork was on its way, a male loved one (6 of Hearts) soon to be born and come home (House).

Very interestingly, the card numbers in this spread added up to 174 which reduces to 12, which equals 12 Children in the Gypsy Witch card deck. This was the clincher for me that my interpretation was on target.

29 + 45 + 46 + 21 + 30 + 3 = 174 = 1 + 7 + 4 = 12 = 12 Children

***********************************

Note Regarding 46 Railroad: With 29 Mouse in the spread, not to mention 3 House, “robbery” could have been a reasonable deduction, but my mind did not go there. The way the cards were interacting, labor and delivery (ending the “long journey” of pregnancy) seemed to be the only correct interpretation based on the energies surrounding my current reality. This is one of the intricacies of “system jumping” with the Gypsy Witch. It’s more an intuitive leap of the mind than a conscious decision to “try this or that” technique and see what pops out. The more you work with these cards, the easier that becomes.

***********************************

 

Summary

Just as the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards predicted, Grandson #3 was born within 25 hours of the card throw. I don’t know which blew me away more: the stunning accuracy of the Gypsy Witch or holding my stunningly gorgeous newborn grandson in my arms. And while I didn’t deliberately set out to combine divination techniques, the Gypsy Witch cards with their remarkable “system jumping” abilities, facilitated my doing so.

Conclusion

The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards are worth their weight in gold. In my 25+ years as a card reader I have not found another divination deck on the market that can match the Gypsy Witch‘s uncanny ability for accurate prediction.

While authorship of the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards is attributed to Mlle. Lenormand herself, I can’t help but suspect some unknown, unnamed protegee was actually responsible for collecting and categorizing Mlle. Lenormand’s secrets and transforming them into the ingenious, if not magickal, card system we know today as the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards.

Perhaps it was the Gypsy Witch ….

Reading with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Part 7

Just because the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards have the ability to “jump systems” doesn’t mean you should throw every cartomancy technique in your toolbox against the wall in an attempt to see what sticks, especially if you start second-guessing yourself on what aspect should be focused on.

What are you supposed to do if, for example, the “fortune” on the Gypsy Witch card you’ve pulled is positive while the playing card inset is negative? Should you factor in the Lenormand card interpretation? What if you pull one of the 17 Gypsy Witch cards that does not feature a Lenormand image?

You can see this could get confusing pretty quickly…

Here are some guidelines I’ve found useful in my own practice of using the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards:
  1. Which aspect of the focus card* jumps out at you first? The image? The “fortune”? The playing card inset? How does that relate to your question?
  2. How are the other cards in your draw modifying the focus card? What captures your attention? The images? The “fortunes”? The playing card insets? You should quickly discover a theme.
  3. Make your decisions as to what has priority and stick to them. This doesn’t mean you have to ignore other information that reveals itself to you, but if you find yourself second-guessing yourself, go with your first impressions.

————————————————-

*The focus card is the card you designate to represent the question/ issue/ situation/ circumstance/ theme/ problem, etc. in a reading. For example, in a three-card spread consisting of Problem-Solution-Advice, the focus card is the Problem. In a Lenormand Line of Five, decide in advance whether you will use the first, last or central card as the focus card.

————————————————–

Below is an example of how this could work, using the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards laid out in the Five Pointed Star with Significator tarot card spread:

Q: Please Provide Insights on Plan of Action:

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards by Systems, U S Games published by United States Games Systems Cards

The first thing I noticed was that three of the six cards drawn — including the focus card — were not traditional Lenormand cards. This suggested that reading the draw in typical Lenormand fashion might not do the trick. Furthermore, since I had chosen to use a positional tarot card spread, it made sense to me to examine the cards from a positional standpoint, starting with the Significator (focus) Card which describes the theme or subject of the reading.

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 10 Pig (3 of Spades) http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 10 Pig (3 of Spades)

10 Pig does not exist in a normal Lenormand deck. Since the card gave me no initial Lenormand point of reference, I looked to its “fortune” for possible clues on interpretation:

“the pig, whether near or far, is an omen of phenomenal luck and great abundance, high honors and all ambitions attained.”

While phenomenal luck and all ambitions attained sounded pretty good to me, I couldn’t help but notice that nasty little 3 of Spades with its extremely negative connotations should one be focused on reading the cards as playing cards. I decided to temporarily shelve my misgivings and proceeded to examine the remainder of the spread.

I quickly noted that two other cards, in addition to the Significator Card, were highly positive: 24 Hand in Hand in Position 2 (Mindsets, Beliefs, Expectations) and 34 Star in Position 4 (Answer, Solution, Advice). The remaining cards were neutral. Since there were no negative cards in the spread, the neutral cards could be considered neutral-positive. All in all, the spread struck me as positive, despite niggling concerns over the highly unfortunate 3 of Spades and 2 of Spades associated with the 10 Pig and 34 Star cards, respectively.

35 Tower in Position 1 (Basis, Reason, Cause) suggested high ambition or high expectations, and with 24 Hand in Hand in Position 2, I was experiencing belief in my own ability to accomplish my goal. (See my post here for more information on Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand.)

16 Ship in Position 3 suggested trade or commerce could be an important factor in my endeavors. Because I tend to view the Ship card (whether Gypsy Witch or Lenormand) as “international trade” which to me suggests internet commerce, it seemed to me that my website and/or some other kind of online shopping outlet could be instrumental as I proceed with my plans.

34 Star in Position 4 (Answer, Solution, Advice) was fairly self-explanatory, being associated with hope, guidance from above and success. This extremely positive association exists in the Tarot and Lenormand Star cards as well as the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards.

The reading flowed fairly smoothly until I got to the final card, 36 Cat, in Position 5 (Probable Outcome). Once again, there is no Lenormand card point of reference, causing me to consider the “fortune” inscribed on the card:

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 36 Cat (8 of Hearts) http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 36 Cat (8 of Hearts)

“The cat indicates flattery; if near No. 6, foretells personal injury. Near 29 and 30, it denotes strife.”

Somehow, that “fortune” or “prophecy” didn’t ring true for this reading. And not for nothing, cards 6, 29 and 30 did not exist in the spread, giving more weight to my growing conclusion that the message for me in this particular card spread was not negative.

To the contrary, the card seemed to be focusing on independence, indifference to the “rules,” and relying on my own inner guidance. In essence, it seemed to transmit the idea that like a cat, I should pay less attention to what anyone else might have to say about my success or lack thereof (including the Gypsy Witch cards!) and go with my own inner guidance.

Summary

With three highly positive cards in key positions and no negative cards in the spread, the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards indicate excellent potential for success, which may be contingent on following my own inner guidance system.

Conclusions

I mentioned above that the highly positive card Gypsy Witch 10 Pig is associated with the highly negative playing card 3 of Spades (confusion, loss, misunderstandings, a worsening problem, interference, a blockage, etc.). I also noted that Gypsy Witch 34 Star, another highly positive card, is associated with the equally negative playing card 2 of Spades (separation, restriction, disagreements, incompatibility, resentment, etc.)

The spread discussion above is an excellent example of how indiscriminately mixing up divination systems (or “system jumping,” as the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards like to call it), can be a dicey way to go.

Take another look at the guidelines I offered near the top of this post.

When performing readings with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards, pick your approach(es) and use your own discretion, keeping in mind that if you insist on applying everything you know about cartomancy from every single card system you have ever studied, you will surely wind up confusing yourself half to death (3 of Spades) and walking away (2 of Spades) from the spread, beating yourself up over your “inability” to read cards!

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Meanings and Combinations: 44 The Broken Glass

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Meanings and Combinations: 44 Broken Glass

The image depicted on Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 44 The Broken Glass immediately elicits an “Oh, no!” reaction. The first thought that may pop into your mind is the seven years’ bad luck associated with the old superstition about breaking a mirror. This interpretation is certainly supported by the “fortune” that’s written on the card: “The broken glass foretells ill luck for long years if near; but if distant, death of a friend.”

Bummer…

But is Gypsy Witch 44 The Broken Glass really all that bad? And is it all that bad all of the time?

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 44 The Broken Glass (8 of Diamonds) http://livingwithcards.comGypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 44 The Broken Glass (8 of Diamonds)

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

The first clue Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 44 The Broken Glass isn’t always negative comes from its playing card inset, 8 of Diamonds, which speaks of balance. It is only when things get out of balance that one’s world-view becomes distorted, as the following illustration will show.

The second clue comes from the examination of the numerological vibration associated with this card, the 44/8 vibration, which is an exceptionally powerful one. 44 is a Master Number and the number 8 is associated with power, as well as balance.

The 44/8 vibration suggests (among other things):

(+) Perseverance through discipline… conforming to and making the best of the situation… resourcefulness… planning in advance… ability to employ common sense and logical thinking… overcoming obstacles through sustained effort

(-) Overly materialistic mindset… chasing fame and fortune to the detriment of one’s health, resulting in discontent and frustration

**********************************************

With the above two clues in mind, let’s take a closer look at how Gypsy Witch 44 The Broken Glass might play out in a simple two-card spread:

Female X, a small business owner, has taken some steps to increase sales. She has generated some customer interest but so far it hasn’t translated into actual sales. She’s feeling a bit apprehensive and wants to know what she should focus on or consider.

 

I drew two Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards to illuminate her situation:

Q: What Should Female X Focus On (need to know)?

 

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 5 Tree (3 of Clubs) and 44 The Broken Glass (8 of Diamonds) http://livingwithcards.comGypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 5 Tree (3 of Clubs) and 44 The Broken Glass (8 of Diamonds)

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

 

According to the “fortunes” written on the cards, Gypsy Witch 5 TREE symbolizes “good health” and “fulfillment of highest hopes” while 44 BROKEN GLASS “foretells ill luck for long years.”

So which is it? A thriving business (TREE) or “might as well close up shop today because it’s all going to hell in a hand-basket” (BROKEN GLASS) and there’s nothing she can do about it?

I decided to dig deeper, considering some of the standard meanings for the playing cards depicted on these cards:

3 of Clubs

Playing card 3 of Clubs http://livingwithcards.com3 of Clubs
  1. Good luck
  2. Fortunate circumstances
  3. Opportunities for growth
  4. Investing in the future
  5. Situations that start small but have the capacity to grow and expand
  6. Expanding one’s knowledge base by learning new things
  7. Investing (in general)
  8. A practical development

 

8 of Diamonds

Playing cards 8 of Diamonds http://livingwithcards.com8 of Diamonds

8 of Diamonds is a card of balance, or a struggle to find balance, in financial matters. The card can also show where additional money can be earned. Other interpretations include:

  1. Being insightful
  2. Looking into the future
  3. Eyes, eyesight, wearing glasses
  4. A person who is related to you
  5. Keeping to a budget
  6. Planning for the future

 

In the context of Female X’s question, if TREE equals “good luck” and BROKEN GLASS equals “bad luck” while 3 of Clubs equals “opportunities for growth, investing in the future, growing one’s business,” and 8 of Diamonds equals “being insightful, looking into and planning for the future,” what might we surmise?

You can’t see your reflection in a broken glass
Distortion of what-is
(A need to) Fix or replace the (broken) mirror

 

**************************************************

The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards seem to be advising Female X to take a closer look at what the circumstances (disappointing sales figures) are reflecting  (BROKEN GLASS) back at her. She needs to re-examine her thoughts (Diamonds) about her goals and expectations (and deliberately choose to focus on the positive aspects of what she wishes to achieve) in order to thrive (TREE), attract good luck (3 of Clubs), and actually grow (TREE) her business.

************************************

Note: Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Card 5 Tree is the only Gypsy Witch card that shares the same card number as a standard Lenormand card, although the playing card insets are different.

*************************************

In essence, the Gypsy Witch cards seem to be pointing out that “good luck” (TREE) vs “bad luck” (BROKEN GLASS) is all in how one sees or perceives it. In other words, no matter what “reality” is showing you, it’s really “all in your head.” Your perception (8 of Diamonds) is your reality.

According to the Law of Attraction, the Universe simply delivers the physical counterparts of what we are thinking and feeling. (Thoughts are things.) In this light, the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards seem to be advising Female X that what is currently needed is not another promotional campaign. It’s not even necessarily a new idea. Female X first needs to re-examine the lens through which she is viewing her reality (BROKEN GLASS) so she can see clearly.

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 44 The Broken Glass (8 of Diamonds) http://livingwithcards.comGypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 44 The Broken Glass (8 of Diamonds)

What is Female X really expecting to happen as far as her business is concerned? Does she “see” new customers pouring in the door or is she focusing on her wares gathering dust as they languish on the shelves? Awareness of what she is envisioning is critical because that’s what she will likely get. If her “vision” (8 of Diamonds) is out-of-skew/ distorted (BROKEN GLASS), she will need to adjust or balance (8 of Diamonds) her mindset/ expectations in a positive direction. Business growth (TREE, 3 of Clubs) will then follow, regardless of what particular promotion or idea she decides to implement.

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins

Notes:

  1. Like many cartomancers, the meanings I’ve derived from the various playing cards come from a blending of various sources and my own intuitions and experience. I particularly recommend The Art of Cartomancy (Kapherus), Ask My Cards (Madame Seaqueen), Hedgewytchery (Dawn Jackson) and Regina Russell’s Card Reader’s Handbook. You’ll find links to these sites in my Blog Roll.
  2. I’ve started posting brief card draws (1 to 3 cards) on Instagram, along with a thought or two on how I would interpret them. I’m using various decks — Lenormand, Tarot, Gypsy Witch, Oracle Cards — whatever strikes my fancy any particular morning. 🙂 Sometimes I throw in something astrological. Occasionally, you might catch a snapshot of  one (or both) of the Rescue Kitties, the grandkids, or one of my Angel drawings. If you’d like to follow along, I’m @mary_hawk12.

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Meanings and Combinations: 24 Hand in Hand

Seventeen of the 52* Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards depict images not contained in a normal Lenormand card deck. As far as I can determine, there is little information available on the internet that illuminates the meanings of these 17 cards. For those of us interested in understanding this deck, all we can do is continue to work with the cards and begin to develop our own compendium of meanings and combinations, based on how the cards seem to be speaking to us. The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Card I will be discussing in today’s post is number 24 Hand in Hand.

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 24 Hand in Hand (King of Hearts)

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

A Little Background Information on the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

Each of the 52* Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards consists of five elements:

  1. Playing card inset
  2. Number
  3. Title
  4. Image
  5. Prophecy

Which, or how many, of these elements is important in any particular card draw depends on the question asked and the circumstances surrounding the question. According to the general rules of cartomancy with playing cards, “red is good and black is bad.” As card readers and diviners, however, we must keep in mind that the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards do not follow the rules and some of the red cards in this deck carry a more sinister vibration, for example, 11 Fox (Ace of Hearts) and 36 Cat (8 of Hearts).

By Itself, Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand is a Fully Positive Card

As an individual card, Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand expresses in a fully positive manner: the playing card inset, King of Hearts, is positive. The number vibration 24/6 is positive. The card title, Hand in Hand, connotes cooperation and agreement. The image depicts a friendly handshake between a man and a woman. The “fortune” or “prophecy” suggests trust, cooperation, fidelity and general good fortune. Unless it is surrounded or hemmed in by cards of a more negative nature, Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand gives a “yes” answer to a yes-or-no question and casts a favorable light on whatever subject you are asking the cards to discuss.

The Numerology of Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand

The second element shared by the 52* Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards is the number assigned to each individual card. Some cards resonate more strongly with their assigned number than others, and Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand is one of them.

From a numerological standpoint, Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand strongly resonates to the 24/6 vibration, which is a fortunate love and family vibration. It is magnetic, favorable, and altogether lovely. Some other qualities associated with the 24/6 vibration include: social and financial success; sound business judgment; practicality in money matters; creativity (a creative mind); clairvoyancy; interest in and support of family matters; gain (in all areas); and love.

The more I work with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards, the more intrigued I become with what I can only call (at this point) their chameleon quality. The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards seem to possess the ability to “jump systems.”

You will recall, either from reading previous posts in this series or from examining your own deck of the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards, that they incorporate regular playing cards, Lenormand cards and Oracle cards, making them somewhat of a challenge to read.

As a playing card deck, the cards are not numbered in sequential order. Take the suit of Hearts for example.

The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Suit of Hearts:

Ace = 11 Fox, 2 = 19 Gentleman, 3 = 1 Sun, 4 = 17 Fish, 5 = 2 Moon, 6 = 3 House, 7 = 21 Storks, 8 = 36 Cat, 9 = 16 Ship, 10 = 7 Bouquet, Jack = 22 Book, Queen = 23 Ring, King = 24 Hand in Hand.

The remaining suits follow the same random numbering pattern, for example, 5 of Spades = 6 Coffin, 6 of Spades = 29 Mice and 7 of Spades = 25 Clouds.

As a Lenormand deck, one of the 36 cards, 36 Cross, is missing. Of the remaining 35 Lenormand cards, the numbering and playing card insets between the two systems do not match. For example, the Lenormand 16 Stars features the 6 of Hearts while the Gypsy Witch assigns the number 34 to the Star card and features the 2 of Spades as the playing card inset.

Some of the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards seem to possess a strong numerological correlation such as 24 Hand in Hand (King of Hearts) which carries the 24/6 vibration; others, not so much (for example, 6 Coffin (5 of Spades) which carries the 6 vibration). I will continue to explore this phenomenon in future posts in this series.

The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards are System-Jumpers!

The “system-jumping” quality of the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards came to my attention this morning when I asked the question, “Can You Provide Another Clue as to How You Work?”

Q: Can You Provide Another Clue? (How Do the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Work?)
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 32 Mountains (8 of Spades), 51 Lion (6 of Diamonds), 20 Lilies (7 of Clubs)

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

The two end cards in this 3-card draw feature Lenormand images, 32 Mountain and 20 Lilies. The middle card is 51 Lion, which is not represented in Lenormand decks. Mountain gives the connotation of obstacles and delays while Lilies suggests a lengthy amount of time. The “fortune” for 51 Lion reads, ‘The lion presages a sudden shock from bad news.’ Since delays and bad news that last a long time does not seem to be an appropriate answer to my question, I figured there had to be another message contained in the cards I drew.

A very quick analysis of the numerology suggested that perhaps after a struggle to overcome obstacles (32 = 3 + 2= 5), harmony (51 = 5 + 1 = 6) and balance (20 = 2 + 0 = 2) could be achieved.

Better, but I sensed there was something more here.

Suddenly, the light bulb flashed. The answer to this particular question was contained solely in the playing card insets. Lenormand card meanings and the Gypsy Witch “fortunes” or “prophecies” did not factor in, although in another reading, or under a different set of circumstances, or with a different question, they might.

The playing card insets told me: Careful examination / investigation (8 of Spades) leads to psychic insights (6 of Diamonds). Work / careful attention to detail (7 of Clubs) is required. [Note:] Another way of reading this combo is by assessing the suits: spades – diamonds – clubs = working (clubs) through an energy (diamonds) problem (spades).

The clue the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards provided as the answer to my question was the actual demonstration of their ability to jump systems, something you may want to keep in mind as you pursue your own study of the cards.

Once again, the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards delivered a highly attuned reading while showcasing their maverick quality and refusal to play by the rules.
