The Ancient Art Of Cartomancy – Part Two by Elizabeth Rose PIN 7430

A park of cards as you probably will know consists of 52 cards. These are divided into four different suits, hearts, diamonds clubs and spades. Each suit has 13 cards, an ace, two, three, four, five six, seven, eight, nine, ten, knave, Queen and King. People usually call them ordinary playing cards to differentiate them from the Tarot cards.

However, they do reflect the Universe, in time and symbolically and numerically as I will explain. It is this link with time that reveals the past the present and the future. So, the 52 cards represent the 52 weeks in the year. The four suits represent the four seasons.

The four suits also symbolize the four elements of nature. Which is air, fire, water, and earth. Maybe they are now known as intuition, intelligence, compassion, and depression.

The four suits have a unique characteristic of their own, representing spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Air, fire, water, and earth they are four weeks in a lunar month, the four parts of a day, and the four stages of a lifetime. That is infancy, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. Also represent the four basic characteristics, intuition, intelligence compassion and depression.

The ace of each suit represents the first week of its corresponding season. Kings rule the second week. Queens the third week and so on. With the two’s ruling the last week of the season.

The first week of Cartomancy year is 1 March to 7 March and is ruled by the first card in the pack, that is the ace of diamonds.

The last week in this year is 22 February to 28 February and is rules by the 2 of spades the last and lowest in the pack.

The joker rules the extra leap year day.

More on Superstitions by Elizabeth Rose PIN 7430

One of the most common superstitions is the fear of Friday the 13th, and that something nasty will happen to us on that date. Bad luck is associated with this date and it is considered the unluckiest day of the year. Some Christians believed that the World would end on Friday 13thCruise ships do not have a deck thirteen and neither do airports have a row thirteen. The next Friday 13th will be in August 2021.

Why is this this so? Well delving back into history for hundreds of years, some people think it is linked with the last supper, when there were thirteen people present before Jesus died on a Friday. Many other catastrophic events have happened on this date too, amongst them the bombing of Buckingham Palace and the sinking of the Costa Concordia.

The fear is so strong psychologists have even called the fear of Friday the 13th paraskevidekatriaphobes!

One popular myth is that if a single woman slept with a piece of wedding cake, then she would dream of her future husband!! However, nothing has ever been proven that this is true.

Waking a sleepwalker is supposed to give them a heart attack according to a popular myth, which is not true. Nothing can happen to their major organs. However, it is not advisable to wake them as they well be agitated and strike out as they could be confused and disoriented.

Amazing Predictions from the Past by Elizabeth Rose PIN 7430

The author Morgan Robertson, fourteen years before the Titanic went down on route to New York, killing 1,517 people in the Atlantic, wrote a book called ‘Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan’. In the story an unsinkable ship sank after hitting an iceberg.

Such a creepy story, with even the name of the boat practically the same. How can you explain that?

At the beginning of the 20thcentury telephones were a new invention. However, in 1909 an engineer and inventor called Nikola Tesla predicted that one-day people would be walking round with a telephone in their pocket. He talked with the New York Times and said that it would be possible one day to transmit messages to many countries and probably one day even all over the World. He also said that he thought people would be able to carry and operate their own apparatus. Interestingly he briefly worked with Thomas Edison.

It was not until 1954 that we had a first major organ transplant However, in 1660 which is 300 years before, a man called Robert Boyle predicted that this would happen. He made many predictions of which most have come true which is absolutely incredible.

James Dean was a promising young actor aged 23 years of age; he died in a car crash in 1955. However, Alec Guinness a famous actor explained in a BBC interview in 1977 that he was talking to James Dean, whom he only met once, as he was showing off his new car, and saying that it could reach 150 mph. Guinness said later that something weird came over him and he told James Dean “please do not get in that car, if you do by 10 o’clock next Thursday night, you will be dead”. So, he predicted the actual date that he would die which was September 30th, 1955.
