The Gipsy's Answer

It is a Q&A style fortune telling technique, where the inquirer asks 2 questions that (s)he seeks answer to. Keep in mind that fortune telling is about getting answers to broad questions and problems, rather than seeking dates, numbers, and exact answers to your specific questions. Ask general questions about a part of your life, about a problem or a person, but don't go into very specific details. Fortune telling rather than giving you exact solutions, gives you a prespective, something to hold on to and start with, something which you can use to think about your own life, part, present and future and make decisions based on you true self.

The bottom row is about the answer to the questions. The cards on the right side are about the future, the left side about the past, and the top row is about the present.

Have fun and good luck!
