 Astrological Fate Cards Minimize

Published by United States Playing Card Company in 1908
(from the collection of Tom and Judy Dawson)

Fortune Telling decks were very popular in the earlier years of the 20th century and most manufacturers produced at least one version. This is the rarest of several Fortune Telling decks published by USPC. It consists of a deck of 52 cards, each with a fortune at the top and bottom, 12 Zodiacal cards, 3 supplementary Planetary cards, a large diagram and a book of rules. The first picture shows two of the cards from the 52 card deck and the back.

The picture below shows the three Planetary cards, Moon, Sun and Mars.

The final picture is of three of the Zodiacal cards, which highlight the good and bad qualities and occupations of people born under the relevant signs.
