They may not always use those words, but I have been asked “What the hell is cartomancy?” before. This is the answer, and I’m sharing it with you because you might want to know that too.

Cartomancy is a word used to describe divination using a regular deck of playing cards. It’s one of the oldest of the forms of divination using cards today. Cartomancy appeared soon after playing cards were first introduced into Europe in the 14th century. The Tarot was initially a playing card deck too. It didn’t become popular as a tool for divination until the late 18th century.

There are still some intuitives using Cartomancy, including me, but it’s not that common anymore.

The reason I’m talking about Cartomancy on social media and the blog this week is because I’m breaking in a new deck. When I break in a new divination tool, I always run a special, and this week was no different. If you want to make use of the offer, you can read about it here, and it’s good until midnight Sunday my time.

      Most people don’t. It’s much more common to talk about Tarot 🙂

    Short and sweet explanations are the best 🙂 Great idea to be running a special to break in the new deck!

      Thanks Sibylle 🙂 It’s a fun way to do it too
