Answer by lala
When you talk about cartomancy ; are talking about regular playing cards ? If so [ and it goes for tarot too ] go to a New Age book store ; and will have a great choice of books who are explaining the meaning of all the cards

    You can definitely use tarot spreads for readings with regular playing cards. But there are spreads that have been developed for cartomancy. There are different techniques. Some use all 52 cards, others, like the Lenormand system use only 36. I found Secondhand-Souls-4occult.com by just doing a search on cartomancy. It has some basic info using all 52 cards and spreads.

    I like Mlle. Lenormand’s Fortune Telling site (see link below) for learning some basics about Lenormand Oracle cards and their meanings. Although you can buy a deck with special pictures on it to help you remember the meanings, you can just use a regular playing deck and just remove the cards that are not used.

    I wasn’t able to learn all I wanted from the Internet so I got “Fortune-Telling with Playing Cards” by Jonathan Dee, from the library. It gave me enough info to figure out what kind of cartomancy I wanted to learn more about. Plus it has meanings for the cards and suits as well as different spreads used with different card reading systems.

    The meanings of the suits are not exactly the same as tarot. You can just read them as the same (Clubs=Wands; Spades=Swords; Hearts=Cups; Diamond=Pentacles) as long as you are consistent. That way your subconscious (or whatever you believe you’re working with when reading cards) knows what the symbols mean to you.
