In telling Fortunes by Cards—as in all games in which they are employed—the Ace ranks highest in value. Then comes the King, followed by the Queen, Knave, Ten, Nine, Eight, and Seven; these being generally the only cards used.
The order, and comparative value of the different suits, is as follows:—First on the list stand “Clubs,” as they mostly portend happiness; and—no matter how numerous, or how accompanied—are rarely or never of bad augury. Next come “Hearts,” which usually signify joy, liberality, or good temper; “Diamonds,” on the contrary, denote delay, quarrels, and annoyance; and “Spades”—the worst suit of all—grief, sickness, and loss of money.
We are of course speaking generally, as, in many cases, the position of cards entirely changes their signification; their individual and relative meaning being often widely different. Thus, for example, the King of Hearts, the Nine of Hearts, and the Nine of Clubs, respectively signify, a liberal man, joy, and success in love, but change their position, by placing the King between the two nines, and you would read that a man, then rich and happy, would be ere long consigned to a prison.
Playing cards can be used the same way as tarot cards for fortune telling. Not many people know that playing cards were developed in the 13th century directly from tarot cards. And they are the second oldest way of fortune telling.

There are four suites in the pack of 52 playing cards. For a fortune teller the four suites have deeper meaning:

Hearts mean happiness in all aspects of life including (but not only) in love. They mean good things especially if more hearts stand together which reinforces their meaning.

Spades are often considered as a negative sign, but they suggest positive hope for good future, mutual trust and friendship.

Diamonds have positive basic meaning. It could be interpreted as luck and blessing. When there are many diamond cards together it means wealth.

Clubs are negative sign. Clubs mean separation, loss, injury, accident or bad luck of some kind. Fortune tellers do not see a club card as a card of death nor predict death of a person on the basis of a club card.

When we are fortune telling with playing cards for a man, this man is symbolized by the king of hearts. The woman is similarly represented by the queen of hearts. Exact interpretations of individual cards can differ widely. Here are the key meanings of the individual cards. This is only a brief guide which is rather insignificant compared to the art of real fortune tellers who mastered this old tradition.
