Most commonly, a deck of 52 playing cards with four suits (spades, clubs, hearts, and diamonds) and 13 cards in each suit (numbers two through ten, plus a jack, queen, king, and ace) is used for cartomancy readings. Sometimes jokers and blank cards are also added to the deck for cartomancy readings. Each suit, number, and face card are given a meaning, which is then related to your specific situation. Tarot card readings are appropriate for nearly any situation, and a phone tarot reading can be just as powerful as visiting a reader in person. One of the most popular types of psychic love readings is a love tarot reading, which focuses on questions of the heart. Tarot readings are among the most well known and popular types of psychic readings and clairvoyant readings. Tarot cards date back to 15th-century Europe, when they were mostly used for game playing. It was in the 18th and 19th centuries that psychic tarot readings for divination, or future telling, became popular.
