The image of the Gipsy-Zigeuner cards in the image is from my deck I received from my aunt who lives in Slovenia 3 decades ago, prior to mass reproduction.
The brief meanings of these 3 cards are as follows.
The Officer is professional matters where the uniform is not necessarily the attire.
The Letter would detail correspondence and communications.
The Misfortune card would indicate an unexpected situation or an emergency.
From these 3 sentences a variety of interpretations can be determined and pretty obvious ones.
In the Sibilla Indovina (Sibilla fortune teller) deck there are corresponding cards.
SOLDIER, A LETTER, TRAP
SOLDAT, EIN BRIEF, FALLE
MILITARE, UNA LETTERA, TRAPPOLA
MILITAIRE, UNE LETTRE, PIEGES
Comparing Zigeuner to Sibilla
The Soldier represents matters of an official nature, person can be uniform. A soldier and officer differ on some levels. In the images you can see the Officer card does not have his arms folded across his chest. It appears as though the Officer is leaning on his sword. In his right hand he holds his gloves- a symbolism of being a gentleman as well. The Soldier loks like he would be less likely to listen and would carry out his duty to the point of using his uniform to intimidate others.
In essence these 2 cards suggest similar meanings.
The Letter card portrays a postman or delivery man handing over a letter to the recipient standing in the window. In the Zigeuner card the envelope is being brought by a bird that is flying in the sky. In both cards there is a seal on the envelope suggesting importance, privacy or professional content.
The Trap card illustrates an man sitting on the ground overlooking a field. It’s hard to see if the bird overhead is a hawk or some kind but it could very well be -to be in keeping with the title. The Zigeuner Misfortune card is a little more hectic & chaotic depicting firemen attempting a rescue. There are flames and smoke engulfing everyone in the scene. Yes this is also a trap-
When these 3 cards come together in a layout it suggests major entrapment by some news or information that is received. It can be legal documents of any sort. Documents these day come in many forms, by mail, summons, email etc. Legal documents are not always connected to law, they can be connected to medicine ie. doctor, dentist, therapist, psychiatrist and so on. Documents can also be rejection and disapproval letters.
In romantic questions, there is a subtle warning that you may be lured into a romantic affair that will be detrimental for your emotional involvement.
In business questions, caution is advised because of a self serving individual who does not have your best interests in mind. As the saying goes, “if it is too good to be true, it probably isn’t true”.
In travel questions, you can expect some delays because of documentations such as Visas, boarding passes, tickets or cancellations.
As spiritual advice cards- the message is strong. Take a look at your own self-sabotaging attitude. Release your rigid thinking to allow better flow of information that you channel from your guides or from your methods of divination. By not being open to Spiritual flow will only prevent you from saving yourself from your own fire-driven Ego.
