These unusual Russian Gypsy Fortunetelling cards are like a puzzle. Each card has four quarter-images, which match up with the other cards to make a huge picture.

This oracle deck has 25 cards and they are the most unique cards. Although there are only 25 cards, there are a total of 50 illustrations depicted in the quarters of the cards. The cards are intended to be used in four different positions so reversals are used with this deck. What makes this deck particularly unique is the fact that the cards are separate from the pictures - a reader doesn't work with the "cards" other than to lay them out - they work with the pictures created by combining the cards together through rotation of the card in its place. This makes for an interesting abstract-like detachment between the cards and the pictures. The illustrations remind me of the smaller, 36-card Titania or Mystical Lenormands. They are not like Tarot in any way, but as a Tarot reader.

Once the cards are laid out, the reader goes through the spread turning the cards in place to make pictures. Only "whole" pictures will count in the reading. It doesn't matter what direction cards are turned to make the picture, but the resultant direction the illustration is facing is important in the reading. This technique leaves the number of cards in a reading determined only at the time of the reading. If no pictures are made, the answer to the querent is that they don't need a reading! If there are pictures made, the reader goes through the spread from top left to bottom right, reading the meanings of the cards based on their orientation.

Tarot cards are a form of divination which assist in allowing a sneak peek into a potential future. A common misconception is that the future is set in stone, and when the cards fall- that is your fate. It may be a bit unorthodox to the orthodox tarot reader...
