Publisher's Preface - Playing Cards are the most globally recognized artifact, virtually every home has some decks of Cards. These Cards were invented by wise-men in the 12th/13th Centuries (A.D.) to conceal an ancient Astrological system. Then they gave them to the ordinary people, to play games with, by which they hoped that the symbolism that they had encoded would remain intact. Which is what has happened, today's Cards have very few differences from their originals - the printing and technical standards have improved but that is about all. In fact, any changes in the design or format of these cards has been met with commercial failure and total non-acceptance by the general public. Although this is basically true, there is an exception when it comes to the Court Cards. Originally, these were single figures with full bodies and legs, however, by the 19th Century they had become double- ended, with just the upper half of their design being shown; it is said this was done to facilitate their recognizability when held fan-like in one's hand, the same reason for adding the indices in the top and bottom corners, in the same time period. However, there is an important point regarding the 12 Double-Headed Court Cards in that they have "Dual Rulerships" within the ASTRO-CARDS System having both a Number/Planet-Suit/Element and a Zodiacal Sign function (for more information on this System, contact the publisher at the address given).
In the Author's Preface, there is a comment relating the Cards to the measurements of the Great Pyramid, this undoubtedly refers to John Barnes Schmalz's "Nuggets from King Solomon's Mines" (1908), now available from the ASTRO-CARDS Reprint Series.
It should be noted that the Card, Number and Suit correspondences with their Astrological interface as given in this work are unique, and in most instances have no direct correspondence or relationship to the ASTRO-CARDS System or any of its root works. In fact, this work is a complete and integral system, which should stand alone without comparison to any other Astrological or Card Reading technique.
