What Are Gypsy Cards?

 

I always use Gypsy cards in the beginning of my readings - just pull out 3 cards to check I am in tune with the client.

However you can do a full reading - I did a square of 9 with Joshua on 10th January and he loved it.

So the question is "WHAT ARE GYPSY CARDS"

Gypsy Cards are a pack of cards which can vary in size and can be anything from 16 to 52 instead of having 78 cards as in a tarot deck. Therefore they are very random in how big the deck is and which cards are in them.

In 1940, Whiteman Publishers produced the Old Gypsy Fortune Telling Cards, a deck a 36 cards.   One of the big different between tarot and Gypsy cards is that Gypsy cards have no suits.   There is however, only suit represented with the King and Queen of Hearts.   This deck above was my very first Gypsy card deck and it came with a hand cover book.

In the past Gypsy families use to paint their own hand painted cards most likely with water colour paints or coloured pencils and each family had their own style or even different amount of cards to each deck. Please note Gypsy cards are NOT LENORMAND CARDS which have a playing card insert on them.   Besides not following a strict pattern. Gypsy Cards never have a playing card insert on them. My smallest deck is 16 cards only which came from Germany. No book  available with this.

My largest is the Paintly Deck from a supplier in Sydney Australia this deck has 52 cards in it and it did come with a booklet with the meanings of each card.

All the best
