In general, the cards are available in range and the consultant selects one, two or more cards that will have the tarot reader on the table (it may be the same person). These cards are then interpreted in the light of the order of appearance, location (right, left, up, down), position (at or inverted) and the type of question. Because the cartomancy does not serve only to predict the future, it can also, with certain card decks and particular methods, serve to describe a person, his/her temperament, strengths and weaknesses.
Of course, cartomancy is not an exact science and its credibility depends a lot on the practitioner, his/her experience and honesty. To start, always choose a card deck that "speaks" to you with its graphics, its symbolism, and its colors.
For example, with a classic card deck, we usually associate each color with a particular domain:
- Heart cards refer to sentimental issues.
- Clubs cards symbolize money and material goods.
- Diamond cards represent the projects.
- Spades cards indicate problems, enemies or significant changes.
There are thus an infinity of other divination card decks of which here are the most famous, the most used:
The tarot of Marseille and its 22 major arcana
The game of Miss Lenormand, very famous Tarot reader in the 18th century, contemporary of the French Revolution.
The oracle of Belline, created by the mage Edmond, a very popular clairvoyant in the 19th century.
But also :
- Astrological Tarot
- Chinese Tarot
- Tarot of the Angels
- Tarot of the couples
- Tarots of the houses
- Persian Tarot

To name a few.
The practice of the divination tarot makes it possible to obtain answers or certain clarifications when a situation is complex or anxiety-provoking. By understanding one's situation better, it makes it easier to manage life events more effectively.
