About Cartomancy


Cartomancy is the art of divination using playing cards. Prophecy by cards has been around for aeons and as with the Tarot there is mystery surrounding their exact origins. It's known that cards were used for prediction in ancient India where packs were divided into 10 suits, each one pertaining to an incarnation of Vishnu, the Hindu god. It is also a possibility that the use of cards for augury first began in Egypt in the times of the Pharoahs and that they were invented by an ancient Egyptian magician called Hermes Trismegistus.

We will never know the complete truth of their beginnings but what we do know for sure is that by the Middle Ages cards were widespread throughout Europe and their function as an oracle of divination and prophecy most certainly preceded their association with play and gambling. 
It seems that mankind has been looking to the Gods and the Fates for help and intervention with our personal problems since time immemorial and we in this 21st century are no different! 
The use of cards to help resolve life's difficulties and give us guidance remains as popular today as it was way back in those Middle Ages!
