Cartomancy uses a normal deck of playing cards to perform divination. Diamonds as a suit foretell outside influences from the World around you in a reading. Know the meanings of the various Diamond cards in a person's reading.
===> Cartomancy from Tarot
When the modern deck of playing cards evolved from the tarot, readers of the cards developed a system of divination to match. Taken from the Tarot, these meanings for the cards, and their relationships for each other were passed down as an oral tradition for many years. Later, when the printing press was developed, these traditions were recorded and published in various sources. The most common meanings for the cards are the ones shown below. Note that since there is no longer a Major Arcana in the cards, excepting the fool or joker, which is not used in readings, other factors such as special card combinations are interpreted instead.
===> The Client Cards from Diamonds
The person for whom the reading is to be performed, is usually represented by either a King or Queen card from the appropriate suit. The King of diamonds is used when the client is a fair or grey haired older man. Likewise, the Queen of Diamonds is used to when the client is a fair grey or auburn haired older woman. If one of these cards is used as the client card, then that card is ignored for purposes of the reading. Instead, it becomes a placeholder in the layout which lets us determine the relative distance of the reading cards and the client of the reading. Cards which are further away from the client card will have less affect of the reading than those which fall right beside it.
===> Diamonds and their Meanings
The following is the common meaning of the various cards in the suit of Diamonds. Remember that these cards in general predict the affects of the world around you outside your home and immediate family. The Ace of Diamonds foretells money being paid to you for your work. It can also foretell the coming of a letter or legal document. The King of diamonds predicts your meeting and interaction with a stubborn hot tempered fair hared man. The Queen of Diamonds predicts that you will meet and work with a sophisticated, sometimes flirtations, fair hared woman. The Jack of diamonds calls for a relative to cross your path. He is not always reliable and may bring either good or bad fortune depending on the circumstances. The Ten of Diamonds is the "change" card. It predicts one of the following: marriage, a journey, or sudden riches. Some change is going to occur soon. The Nine of Diamonds predicts a surprise in your near future; this surprise will be connected to money in some way. The eight of Diamonds predicts a late marriage for you or someone close to you. It can also foretell a journey which leads to a new relationship with a friend of lover. The seven of Diamonds is a bad luck card; it foretells heavy losses which may or may not be avoidable.
