Turn a standard deck of playing cards into a colorful divinatory system filled with inspiration, adventure, insight, and advice.
In Playing Card Divination, each card from ace through king represents a mythic role (Hunter, Lover, Healer, etc.) and each of the four suits gives an action for that role (Promise, Gambit, Folly, Triumph). This brings a unique meaning to every combination—for example, the three of hearts becomes “Healer’s Triumph,” representing gratitude, recognition, and teamwork. For each card, author Stephen Ball provides a brief imaginative story that helps you understand and remember the meaning. You will also discover examples of readings with one card, two cards, and five cards as well tips for interpreting unexpected combinations.
This approach to reading playing cards is fresh and updated for today’s reader. Whether you want to read for yourself and your friends or for clients, this book shows how to discover new perspectives that support positive transformation.
Stephen Ball is the author of Elemental Divination: A Dice Oracle and has taught and created systems of divination for over twenty years. He previously published The Apple Branch: An English Shamanism as Stephen Blake, and contributed to Avalonia’s anthology Horns of Power and to Steve Drury’s Dice Mysteries. He lives in London.
