Few people know that today's deck of playing cards is actually based on an ancient, mystical card system akin to the Tarot. This system has secretly inspired many popular birthday books, but THE POWER OF PLAYING CARDS is the first to reveal precisely how it works, and explain how this synthesis of astrology and numerology can provide answers to questions about love, friendships, family, career, and the future. The appeal of this system is its simplicity, there are no intimidating, arcane Tarot symbols or rituals. Instead, the cycles of thirteen cards and four suits fall neatly into the fifty-two weeks of the year and are easily attributed to various astrological and numerological influences. Each card carries its own special meanings through its associations with planets, numbers, and other symbols that give insight into personalities and life purpose. Readers learn how to determine their signature card and use it to gain insight into their past, present, and future. The cards also interact with one another, revealing accurate information about a person's relationships with others when the cards are laid out in a spread.
Whether using the cards for serious inquiry or simply for fun, this is a simple and enthralling guide for every reader seeking greater knowledge about themselves, their loved ones, and their futures.
