15 card layout from Card Readers Handbook by Regina Russell.
I have written about Regina’s playing cards system many time over the years. The accuracy of this system has proven itself to the point that I enjoy writing about it. Every Cartomancer has a different routine when reading cards no matter if they are regular playing cards, the Tarot or the Sibilla style decks.
I did not have a specific question in mind when I shuffled the playing card tiles. My tiles are fairly large and if you like them I’m sure you’ll find them on Etsy, Ebay or in some of the vintage games.
SUITS: There are 6 spades ♠ out of 15 cards. That is a lot at 40%. Big problems. There are 2 hearts ♥ and that’s about 13%. Not a terribly happy 2 months. There are 3 clubs ♣ at about 20%. Not overly busy. Lastly, there are 4 diamonds ♦ at about 27%. Some financial issues. The suit distribution is predominantly spades. This means the next two or three months will be filled with setbacks, delays or challenges especially at the 2 month time frame (bottom fan all spades)
LAST CARD OF FANS/WINGS of Layout: 3 fans end in spades ♠. Center fan ends in diamonds ♦ and the one month fan ends in hearts ♥. From this observation we can see the person will not have too many issues for about 4-6 weeks. If there are any problems they will be figured out.
COURT CARDS: 5 court cards so that is about 34% other people’s involvement. This is probably an average for anyone. Three (3) Jacks- Jack♥ is missing. This could mean the absence of a younger male member of the family. One King♠ -most likely not the partner of the Queen but can be a person in an authoritative position or specialized training.. One Queen♥ -most likely the Significator for the female getting the Reading.
DOUBLES: Two (2) tens – 10♠ and 10♥ missing. Two sixes – 6♥ and 6♣missing.
These observations should give you a general idea for the theme or essence of the Reading already.
The first combination I want to study is the 8♠ 9♠. This duo indicates a major operation/surgery. These two cards do not fall together but nevertheless they are in the layout. When they fall separately I read this as a scheduled surgery date or at least knowledge that an operation is necessary. Most likely it has been discussed since the 9♠ falls in the left fan indicating the past or passing situation. Who is having the surgery? Is it the Jack ♦ or the Jack♠ which ends the fan on the bottom? The 2 Jacks together indicate someone in uniform (probably nurses or younger doctors). The King and 2 Jacks point to a team or group of people.
UPDATE: heart surgery for a family member June 2014.
The 3♠ is beside the 9♠ even though they are in different fans of cards. (double spades)The 3 ♠ represents tests, x-rays and does suggest something is blocked. The 10♣ beside it points to fluids. I would only use the meaning for a trip or small business if I were talking about that. It’s important to remember that. Use the keywords which tie into the theme or topics you are summarizing. The fan ends with the Jack♦ suggesting there won’t be an emergency or problem in the upcoming weeks. The Jack ♦ can be the person facing the tests which ties into the surgery prediction.
UPDATE: ties into last paragraph. Blockages in arteries. Surgery was successful.
In the next fan (up to 2 months or so) we see the 7♣ showing an argument. It could be a negotiation as well. This card has busy energy which means most likely there will be lots of conversations (5♦) to come with the Q♥. There is some kind of attraction between the Jack♦ and Queen ♥. They do fall separately but the duo still means someone from the past who had an emotional connection.
UPDATE: a friend’s encounter with someone new which felt like someone old (past life).
The top fan with the Jack♣ Ace♥ (home) King ♠ predicts a family reunion. It doesn’t end well because the ♠ ends the fan. There is some problem or issue. Reunion are typically thought of as good but sometimes reunion need to happen because of something unsettling. In the past I have seen 8♠ 9♠ Ace♥ to indicate heart surgery. You can study the cards beside the 8♠ and 9♠ for more clues. 3♠ can be an infection. 6♠ can be the back.
UPDATE: News of a distant relative falling – breaking back. Required 2 back surgeries. Did not survive. Reunion of family members at the funeral. Note: This 15 card layout predicted up to 8 months into the future. This can happen and one should not be rigid with the time frame of the wings.
The bottom fan has triple ♠. This fan is also up to 2 months or so and can show delays or challenges. The 6♠ and the Ace♥ could be a move in location. The 6♠ is the fate card as well. The Jack ♠ ending this fan is connected to the home (6♠).
UPDATE: has not come to pass
10♣ 10♦ indicates an airplane trip which may or may not have anything to do with this surgery prediction. I would really need to have the Ace♣ in this layout to confirm a hospital connection.
UPDATE: has not come to pass with exception of an long trip via airplane for another member of the family
The next 21 card layout (explained in the Card Readers Handbook) will expand on this one providing more information. After I read the 15 card layout I shuffle the cards thoroughly and continue with the 21 card layout. It is an extension bringing the time frame up to 4-6 months and 6-8 months.
