Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Cards are based on the divination system attributed to Mlle Lenormand, the celebrated 18th century French mystic and fortuneteller. Mlle Lenormand’s prophetic powers were known throughout Europe. Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Cards were first introduced in 1903 and have been published continuously since. They remain one of the most widely recognized and popular fortune-telling decks in the United States.
The Gypsy Witch deck provides an easy-to-learn method of divination. The significance of each card is determined by its context and position in the layout. Each Gypsy Witch card is numbered and displays a pictorial illustration of the cards symbolic meaning. Individual meanings of the cards are also written on the card faces.
The card pack includes a small instruction booklet with two methods of laying out the cards for either a short or long reading. Cards measure 2.5" x 3.5" and can be used for traditional card games as well as cartomancy.
