I got hold of an old magazine that featured an entire page about divination method with the use of regular playing cards. The method interests me because it was in line with Astrology. The 4 characters in each set of playing cards represent the four elements which are fire, water, earth, and air. Reading cards is like deciphering the secrets of the creative mind.
In the past, people made use of cards to just have fun and play games. But also, the same playing cards were used for fortune telling. Based on history, it had been said that playing cards were in fact developed for divination reasons. So play cards are not really intended for poker games like ceme qq.

Case Study: The Case of Young Mary (California)
Young Mary, in her college days, has a free and carefree spirit. She loves to go on adventures despite the fact that she already has a child from her teen years. Lucky for her, her parents took the child in their custody so that young Mary can finish college. In one of young Mary’s favorite hangouts, she encountered a bizarre situation. A new deck of cards was purchased by her friends. The old lady vendor boasts that she can read cards, to tell fortune. Young Mary volunteered to have her fortune read.
The cards read that her father will go through some kinds of a dilemma in health. Not just ordinary sickness but an illness that can lead to his death, the other card read that Young Mary is going to be pregnant before that year will be over. Young Mary listened but was not alarmed thinking that the reading was just a game.
The days passed for Young Mary. She enrolled for summer classes for that year. On a Saturday, she received a call that her father was very ill and was rushed to the hospital. Later that month, he was diagnosed with brain cancer. Doctors advised to take him home and to make his last remaining days comfortable as possible.
On that same month, Young Mary was devastated to find out she’s pregnant for the second time. Her boyfriend at that time fled as soon as he found out about the pregnancy.
While introspecting, Young Mary recalled the cards that were read to her. She also recalled that the old woman who read her cards said that she merely reads what the cards say. Regardless, it should serve as a warning and that she should make things different. In Young Mary’s case, she only came to realize that cards told the truth when it happened.
