These are my favorite. A dollar pack from Five & Dime and boom! you're in business.
Been reading this since early 1990's, around that time, into mid 1990's my mom and I added them to family reunion reading sessions. At first, they were seen more as a parlor trick then viable reading tools, but we soon changed that.

Note: NEVER use a deck of cards that has been 'played' with. In an emergency, it is said that you can, by a few books. DON'T. They will not be honest as they have been seasoned to lie. IE: poker face.

Treat these cards as you would a tarot deck. Do not even house them near the gambling kids.

I keep two reading decks. One, in my office or by my alter. Depend if I have an office. The other, travels with me. I have a fold up organizer which holds all my current projects. In the organizer, there are two clear plastic sleeves--not good for much of anything. In one, I house my reading deck as they are rather inconspicuous, a cleaning cloth, and a few erasers. The art of blending in is a simple, yet tedious one. If I housed these cards in their own space, people get suspicious and ask. Bundling them with other items, passersby assume, oh, they play or they gamble. (Well, guess what, I just won the pot as they assumed wrong.)

I've since turned the cards face down in that organizer. That 4 of Clubs lived up to its meanings for as long as I let it sit there. We sent our boy up to visit grandparents while I hunted for work. Spouse and I ended up homeless, second time before I landed an out of state job. It fell through over the Christmas holiday, while we were visiting our son and family. So, we stayed here. When I read with the cards again and placed then face down in the organizer, things began looking up.

Funny how that happens.

Spreads used for playing cards: ANY! Let your little heart just burst with possibilities!

Personally, I frequent The Wheel/Clock, Celtic Cross, and Gypsy Spread. The Horse Shoe is also great. Use that with Tarot quite often. Oddly enough, think I adopted that as a solely tarot spread. Used it only once with playing cards.

JOKERS
Generally speaking, these are pulled from the deck upon openings and before first shuffle. I throw them out as soon as I buy them (have often done so in-store). They are generally unreadable and can change the deck over time. If you do use them (one) in your reading deck, they mean one of two things: New beginnings and/or an unreadable moment (could be uncertainty, could be a random, life-changing event or act, or the Joker, being himself, and taking over the deck)

When I first began reading playing cards, I had two decks. One with and one without the Joker. The deck with the Joker, I could never keep more than a few months. Six months was my record. After that, the deck was unreadable. That is the influence of the Joker.

You can clear a deck of influence. Smudging may work. Salt is better, if the cards are covered in it--and, to rid the Joker's touch, each card must be done separately. Warning if you smudge, there is not % on whether it will work. It will cleanse the deck. But, it pits the Joker against all it hopes you do. Have seen the Joker 'take' the deck after smudging. The cards will come up void of meaning (albeit still printed on), even gambling with the deck afterwards is not recommended. The games generally break up, some times quickly, no one feeling right touching the cards.

The Joker is not a 'bad' card. I wish to make that clear. Pitted in the deck, the Joker and the Reader become the Unstoppable Force and Immovable Object. The deck, placed between these two odds will reject use. The energy to withstand such a meeting is very taxing on the cards.

Jokers do have a place in a reading deck. Will cover that in a coming post. As you can chart a person through astrology, you can do so with playing cards. And, for this, you need the Joker(s).
