I have had the pleasure of interacting with Andrew in various FB cartomancy groups. I find his insights truly unique. He follows his own beat which is always a treat in cartomancy.
I believe the deck Andrew is holding is one of Paris Debono’s creations.
Andrew’s divination history started in 1984 when he was given the Book of Runes by Ralph Blum. The Elder Futhark was his lifeblood until Andrew was encouraged to learn the tarot in 1996. Gradually by the end of 2007, he had shifted out from reading tarot and the adventure of working exclusively with playing cards took over. It happened again in 2011 when Andrew’s interest in Oracle cards emerged and everything else slipped away.
Andrew remains in this space today. His past reading history has always been for family/friends and of course, for himself. The idea of going professional continues to appeal to Andrew. He is always with a cat or two, however, at one point he did inherit a dog and four pet chickens when the owner made his unexpected transition.
Andrew’s current project at the moment is creating a set of fortune telling playing cards that he hopes to market in 2017. It is about 75% completed. Andrew’s long-term aspiration in cartomancy is to work towards being the male version of Mlle Lenormand.
I wish Andrew the very best with his project. Perhaps in a future post, Andrew will give us a sneak preview of a few cards from his new deck of fortune-telling playing cards.
