The Nile Fortune cards 68 X gold edges have all the meanings on the actual playing deck on all four sides. This makes it easy because there is no need to memorize anything. Blending the cards around the center LIFE card will give you key sentences that you can build up on yourself.
In the example below we can summarize the significant influence using the 8 cards around the LIFE card. The actual layout has 17 piles of cards around the LIFE card with 3 cards in each pile except the 17th pile has 4 cards.
I think when studying this layout with all the cards would take a considerable amount of time at the beginning even though the meanings are right on the face of the card. Card synthesis is a skill- not everyone has that skill but it can be learned. Reading intuitively requires skill as well. If you DO NOT know the difference between your EGO voice and your SPIRITUAL voice then your intuitive readings will still be based in EGO and you will be what is called a ” text book reader”, and a text book reader never adds any intuitve insights to the reading. Reading cards is similar to playing the piano, guitar or flute. Some people have to practice forever and for other’s it is a natural ability which is picked up quickly.
Looking at the reading below.
#1-7 clubs, #2-5 clubs, #3- 2 spades, #4- Queen spades,
#5- Jack clubs, #6- 5 spades, #7- 8 clubs, #8- 2 clubs
#1 – a debt unexpectedly paid
#2 – you will marry a second time
#3 – a removal
#4 – brunette of jealous disposition
#5 – an open, sincere friend
#6 – your companion in life will be devoted to you
#7 – a journey by car or vehicle (well it could be a broom, ha-ha)
#8 – an acceptance and pleasant journey
You can summarize those meanings quite easily. I wouldn’t attempt reading this deck unless you have lots of time, because it will take you at least an HOUR to figure the full layout out. And if you thought the full board of 36 in the Lenormand or Ziguener was challenging – the Nile fortune cards exceed even them.
