Gypsy Fortunes

£19.99

Product description

paperback and cards in box, in VGC.

The Romany people - popularly known as gypsies - are widely believed to be the world's greatest soothsayers and fortune tellers. This book-and-card set unveils gypsy secrets to help users foretell their destiny. The author describes several different ways of card-reading, all derived from Romany lore, ranging from a simple one-card reading to an intricate 36-card method of divining the future. This package contains a specially designed set of 36 cards plus a book that instructs on use of the card deck. Readers explore the symbolism contained in each card's picture and learn how to lay out cards to read fortunes. Among the 36 symbols are: The sun, designating happiness and good luck . . . Flowers: designating gifts from nature . . . The Sword, designating life's challenges . . . The Snake, designating temptation . . . and The Cupid, designating greed and lust. Inspired by Romany wisdom set down in the book, and using its 36 beautiful, nature-inspired cards, readers can gain insights and advice formerly possessed only by Gypsy seers.
