Is cartomancy the same as tarot? Similar to the cards in a tarot deck, every card in a standard playing deck is ascribed a certain meaning. In cartomancy, you present your question to the cards, make a pull, and then allow your subconscious to guide the way.
How do you read cartomancy?
What cards are used for fortune telling? In English-speaking countries, the most common form of cartomancy is generally tarot card reading. Tarot cards are almost exclusively used for this purpose in these places.
Who created cartomancy? Card divination has been practiced long before the 19th century. This is a fact established thanks to a few artistic representations of soothsayers or fortune-tellers, in particular a print by the French artist Louis Halbou, La Crédulité sans Réflexion, engraved in 1770.
