Why playing cards? Why not Tarot cards? The esoteric Tarot cards used for divination, as well as Tarot interpretation techniques were invented only at the end of the 18th century by the French fortune teller Etteilla. For 400 years until then, since cards first appeared in Europe, the fortune telling was done only with regular playing cards. They are a much older tradition.

Our focus is not on the esoteric aspect of divination but on the storytelling you do as you learn to connect clues offered by cards into a narrative and predict the outcome of potential events. Narratives like this - whether they touch real life events or stay in the realm of play and fantasy - help you to work through cause and effect scenarios, sort out your feelings, take responsibility for your actions, and consider the motivations and feelings of people in your life.

Have fun playing a fortune teller This engaging activity will help you get in touch with your intuition and come up with valuable insights about the reasons and motivations behind people's behavior.
