I received a question in the comments section regarding the interpretation of the Gipsy-Zigeuner Wahrsagekarten fortune telling cards in the layout order below. I will share the analysis of these cards using the 8-card spread. Also, applicable to the Art Deco fortune telling cards.
Row# 1 Lover,Widower, Sadness,hope
Row #2 Loss, Misfortune, house, merriment
My question was;What are “J’s” feelings for me?“J” is my love interest, we have dated in a very up and down relationship for 4 years. He’s hurt and angry with me and has asked for us to not speak until he’s ready. (its been 8 months) .Whats your take on this?
.The Reading.The interpretation that I am about to do is based on the placement of the 8 cards. This simple layout is easy to follow. I will use my suggested key words & phrases from the TAB at the top of the head called Card Meanings
Row #1 -20. LOVER= The special man for a female seeker of the cards. Represents the male getting the reading. If there is no one special currently -a male friend, brother. In the future spot predicts the potential of a love affair.
36.WIDOWER= A lonely and sad man. A situation that must be accepted. Pining over loved one.
28. SADNESS= Tears of pain. Upsetting time. Very depressed. Under the weather. This shall pass, a temporary state of mind.
12. HOPE= Believing in a positive outcome. All is possible through faith.
Row #2- 18. LOSS= It’s a no-go. Money issues. A break-up in a relationship. Betting against the odds & losing.
25. MISFORTUNE= A card of warning. Potential mishap or freak circumstance. Expect the unexpected.
13. HOUSE= The environment you live in. A project. Members of the family
24. MERRIMENT= Having a good time. Feelings of pleasure from entertainment. Attending a function where there is much joy and laughter.
Summary. The Lover card represents “J” the love interest. The Loss card indicates the break up or rift. The Widower card points to the feelings of grief due to this separation. I chose to used the Sadness cards to represent female in this case because of it’s proximity to the House card -hitting home.
The Misfortune card describes the emotional chaos because of the situation around J and how it possibly affects the female. There is strong evidence that a reunion will occur (Merriment & Hope). The feelings of grief or sadness depicted by the cards will be overcome despite the 8 months wait.
Believe or not within the Misfortune card is a ray of hope, too. Look at the firemen…help is on it’s way to the resolution of this situation. The lady in the Hope card is throwing the roses of passion into the water. This means the relationship needs to be let go -in order for it to come back. I think conversations will resume in this relationship once the emotional intensity has been minimized. Release the roses of emotional passion.
Like the saying, “If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it was yours. If it doesn’t, it was never yours to begin with.”
