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 6

Back in Part 2 of this series, I dismissed the LWB (Little White Book) that accompanies the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards out of hand, categorizing it as “less than worthless.” I made this value judgment because, other than providing two layouts (with an example reading for only one of them), the LWB gave no clues on how to read the deck. A comment made by a Living With Cards visitor prompted me to take a second look.

If you own this deck, you’ve certainly noticed that the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards LWB consists of a scrap of paper approximately nine inches wide by 3-1/2 inches high folded into eight panels of information. Because of its tiny size, the information contained within this “book” is beyond brief. Panel 1 is the Introduction. Panels 2 and 3 contain instructions for “The Short Reading” (no reading example is given), while Panels 4-7 address “The Long Reading” (includes a brief reading example using the “fortunes” written on the cards only). The last panel is simply a title page.

The layouts themselves, as described in the LWB, seem to be a blending of traditional cartomancy layouts and Lenormand tableaus. “The Short Reading” employs 17 cards while “The Long Reading” uses 51 cards.

Being a proponent of “less is more,” further down in this post I’ll show you a recent spread I cast using the Gypsy Witch Short Reading layout, along with my “tweaks” to the Gypsy Witch instructions, as well as my commentary. But first, take a look at the template itself:

 Gypsy Witch Cards: The Short Reading Layout

 

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Layout for "The Short Reading" http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Layout for “The Short Reading”

 

You can see from the layout graphic, “The Short Reading” basically consists of a Lenormand Square of Nine (in blue) surrounded by eight additional cards (in red).

 

Gypsy Witch Cards: Short Reading Instructions:

 

Note: The instructions outlined in the LWB for both “The Short Reading” and “The Long Reading” include a preliminary card draw to ascertain whether the Querent (person asking the question) will get his or her wish. For the purposes of the following reading example, I chose to ignore that instruction… If you choose, however, to perform the preliminary card draw, be sure to reshuffle the cards before continuing.

Once the cards are shuffled (or reshuffled, if you are using the preliminary draw), the Gypsy Witch Short Reading instructions next say to place either the Lady or the Gentleman as Card 1 within the Square of Nine, place the remaining eight cards around Card 1, then go on to place an additional eight cards around the Square of Nine. The instructions do not specifically state the order in which to place the cards and the layout graphics above and below reflect my own choice of card placement. Additionally, for the purposes of the following reading example, I also chose to let the deck pick the first card, come what may…

And on that note, let’s proceed with the reading example…

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards “The Short Reading” Example: “What Is Going on with This Lady?”

 

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Short Reading Example: "What Is Going On with this Lady?" http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards “The Short Reading” Example: “What Is Going On with this Lady?”

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

The cards within the Square of Nine will describe what is going on with this Lady, i.e., the internal process. The cards outside the Square of Nine will show the outside influences that have contributed to the Lady’s current situation.

The Square of Nine: Internal Process – The Situation in Which the Lady Now Finds Herself

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Short Reading Square of Nine http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards “The Short Reading” Square of Nine
Row 1: 18 Lady + 24 Hand in Hand + 31 The Roads

This Lady is facing a decision (Roads) regarding a significant relationship (Hand in Hand).

Row 2: 34 The Star + 15 The Letter + 52 The Shepherd

She is seeking guidance (Star) and support (Shepherd) via the written word (Letter). Perhaps she is reading through posts on an internet support group or forum, attempting to see if anyone is experiencing a similar situation. She may be posting some details concerning her situation onto an internet forum or social media account, perhaps hoping to receive feedback, support or guidance from people who may care about her. Alternately, she may be consulting her own Inner Guidance — or astrology chart — and writing down the insights she is receiving. She could be texting loved ones who support her, asking for advice or guidance. The playing card inserts on the cards in Row 2 show that her ability to “think intelligently” about the situation is blocked (Spade + Diamond + Spade).

Row 3: 4 The Key + 28 The Anchor + 32 The Mountains

Whatever is going on in the Lady’s life has knocked her off-center (Anchor + Mountains). She needs to re-establish a sense of security (Key + Anchor) and a sense of inner guidance (Star + Key), but this will not happen immediately (Mountains).

The decision(s) (Roads) she needs to make about the significant relationship (Hand in Hand) will take some time (Anchor, Mountains), and not without a fair amount of soul-searching (Star) and support (Shepherd).

Cards Outside the Square of Nine: External Circumstances that are Affecting or Influencing the Lady’s Situation

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards “The Short Reading” Outside Square

The cards outside the Square of Nine show the external circumstances that have contributed to, or have caused, the Lady’s current situation.

I am not particularly surprised to see that  it is a man (Gentleman)…

At the least, this man is causing a problem in the Lady’s life (Fox + Gentleman) that is disrupting her harmony (Snake + House). At worst, he has deceived her and has possibly cheated on her (Fox + Snake + Gentleman). He has disrupted what she has believed to be a stable relationship (Snake + House with Ring), and this has all happened fairly recently. It is a new development (Children).

Looking deeper, the man in question may be childish or immature (Gentleman + Children) and/or someone who does not take the relationship with the Lady as seriously as she does (Gentleman + Clover). While it is possible this man was recently offered a new job that will require him moving far away (Clover + Ring + Ship + Fox), it is equally possible that the man is leaving the Lady for another woman (Ring + Ship with Snake). If so, it is possible that either this other woman (Snake) has children and/or that his relationship with her is a brand new development (Children).

Summary

The Lady has come to a crossroads/ decision point (Roads) regarding a significant relationship (Hand in Hand).

A separation/ removal (Spades) is impacting her ability to think intelligently (Diamonds) about her options, and is setting her into a tailspin of depressed and negative thoughts (Spades). She is reaching out for guidance and support, most likely via online communications, texting, etc. (Star + Letter + Shepherd). Some sense of inner security must be regained (Star + Key + Anchor) before any decisions (Roads) can be made. There is no solution at the moment (Mountains as Pivot Card in the Square of Nine).

The cards that are placed outside the Square of Nine suggest that an actual or suspected breach of trust (Fox + Snake + House) by a significant other (Gentleman) is the cause of the problems (Fox). The significant other may be immature (Children) or the type that “lives for today” (Clover). He may be leaving the Lady for a new job elsewhere (Clover + Ring + Ship + Fox). It is equally possible he is leaving her for another woman (Snake) whom he met very recently and/or who may have children (Children).

The Lady needs to step away and sort things out (Roads) before she can move on with her life. Her trust has been breached (Fox, Snake, Anchor) and she is going to need a fair amount of time (Mountains as Pivot Card) and support from people who love her (Star + Shepherd) before she will be in a position to make healthy decisions.

Conclusions

The quality of information I ascertained from the Gypsy Witch Short Reading layout has convinced me that this particular card spread certainly has merit, and I would use it again.

If you own the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards deck, I would encourage you to give “The Short Reading” layout a try. You could also use this layout with any Lenormand deck. I think you will be pleased with the results.

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins
