Titania’s Fortune Cards

This is the deck I use most often. Based on the Leonormand deck, the images are very simple but easy to read. I find that this is an easy deck to learn and it’s “user friendly”- meaning it’s the sort of deck that’s less confronting for people unused to having their cards read. It does take practice. This deck is all about reading combinations. On their own the individual cards aren’t very helpful (with one notable exception, the Harsh Truth Spread) but they do combine very well to make “sentences”. Context is everything with these cards. You’ll notice that meanings vary depending on the combinations. Some cards have similar meanings or sub-meanings that reinforce each other or contradict each other.

Please note that these are the meanings that work for me. You may find that the meanings vary for you and only time and practice will sort that out. I have found that the cards will often eventually mean what you think they mean which is why you’ll find so many variations of meanings out there. Just keep working with them and journaling until you’ve got the meanings that suit you.

Clouds

Keywords- thoughts, something uncertain or changeable, can be difficult times approaching or leaving depending on where the card falls

The Clouds are a bit tricky because their appearance can suggest that the reading is about what the querent is thinking rather then what is actually happening. Having said that though, we often make our thoughts become real by just thinking them often enough. The appearance of the clouds also suggests that things are settled yet. Other peoples actions or inactions may change things yet. Just take it as granted that when the clouds appear things are still up in the air.

Coffin

Keywords- waiting, stagnation, death

This is probably the card that freaks out most people when it comes up, understandably. It can on occasion mean an actual death, but in the 15 plus years I’ve been reading with this deck it has never predicted a close death. It most often means a long wait, or that the situation is stagnant, nothing happening. I tend to get very frustrated when it appears because it’s almost always more of a wait then you can bear, at least while you are going through it. I just try to remind myself that this to shall pass. Eventually.

In combination

Coffin/ Flowers- a pleasant wait, something you don’t mind waiting for

Coffin/ Scythe- this is the only combination that means an actual death, most likely it won’t be an unexpected death, though it is always sad

Coffin/ Star- laying hopes to rest, giving up on a dream or realising a dream is impossible

Coffin/ Stork- if you have been waiting a long time this is the combo you want to see- something you have been waiting for will finally happen, movement with a stagnant situation

Coffin/ Dog- a lost friendship, a friendship is at an end

The Book is unopened so it represents things you are still yet to find out. In this day and age though I have noticed it stands for technology itself, computers, online, etc as well as reading and writing. It’s a rather busy card that needs a companion card for it to make much sense.

Man/ Woman

Keywords- a man or woman important to the querent or the querent himself or herself

In traditional decks and spreads the Man and Woman are the cards that the whole reading centres around. I have found them to be slightly less important the way I read them. They will however pretty much always mean you or your querent. Occasionally they will be about someone else. Most often people will identify them as someone else when they are paired with not so nice cards because most people don’t like to see themselves as not so nice. Bear that in mind when you are reading for yourself and others. Sometimes you really are the person being not so nice, ok.

In combination

Man/ Woman/ Sun- someone happy and optimistic

Man/ Woman/ Moon- someone about to be or who has recently been honoured in some way

Sun

Keywords- optimism, all good, can be success or that you are on the right path, something soon

Easily one of the best cards. If this comes up trust that its all good. Even the worst of cards is softened by the Sun. Generally it means what ever you are asking about will either happen soon, within the next few days.

In combination

Sun/ Moon- an invitation to love, everything going smoothly for a while

Sun/ Key- ultimate success, this is a woo hoo! combination, everything falling into place as if by magic

Sun/ Fish- great good fortune, finances are under control and growing well

Sun/ Cross- rewards, spiritual progress, being in harmony with yourself                      ,

The Moon can sometimes be a little tricky. Generally it’s a sweet and positive card. Its about suggestions and propositions, ideas and maybe’s.

In combination

Moon/ Fish- a business idea, a suggestion to invest money, a financial proposition

In combination

Key/ Fish/ financial success

Key/ Anchor- success you can be sure of, a long lasting success

Key/ Cross- there is a spiritual solution to your problem, solving a spiritual problem

Fish

Keywords- money, finances

This one is easy, money, money, money. The direction of the fish is pretty important. It’s either coming in towards you or swimming away. If its coming in, so is your money. If it’s swimming away so are your hard earned dollars.

In combination

Fish/ Anchor- money is secure, a nest egg or ‘rainy day’ money

Fish/ Cross- maturity of an investment, superannuation, sometimes it’s about your spiritual attitude to money and abundance

Anchor

Keywords- lack of movement, things staying as they are, something you are sure of

The Anchor is the opposite of the Road. It keeps things stable, in place, certain.

In combination

Anchor/ Cross- your destiny, something meant to be

Cross

Keywords- a crossroads, destiny, something out of your hands, outside forces

Lastly the Cross. We’ve covered all of its combinations above and on it’s own it’s simply destiny. Something outside of your control. It is about spirituality as well, the deeper side of life. It’s appearance in a reading suggests that’s your situation is deeper then it seems.

Some of the combinations are very similar to each other but vary a little in the context. Also these are only combinations for pairs. They vary again when read in threes or more, but what’s here should give you an idea of how to put together meaning ‘sentences’. Like all readings, practice, practice, practice.

    is there some advice on how to enhance the response to my educational work for children The I AM Program?

    xxxxx
    LOVE

  2. Thank you for such a very insightful explanation! I used to own these cards but I gave them to a close friend who now reads them for me from time to time! I just can’t seem to stay away from these simply beautiful, mystical informative cards.

  3. Wow! What an amazing resource! The booklet provided with the cards provides descriptions on only a few interactions. This is what I’ve been looking for. Thank you, so much, for this amazing contribution.

  4. I have these cards but always seem to get wrong message, but ready your descriptions has just 150% said what is going on on my life. Thank you very much for sharing this with us. God Bless

  5. I’ve purchased a pack of these. I truly enjoy them, how often is it appropriate to do a 9 card spread? I am seeking answers to whether my recent move across the country was the right move, and I am stumped.

    • HI Jan,
      You can do 9 card spreads about once a week- any sooner then that and the messages become rather messy. But if you are after the answer to a specific question then one or two cards are probably better for a clear answer.

  6. In a 9 card spread of 3×3 do the paired combinations change with the third card added. For example coffin and scythe represent a physical death. But scythe and fish indicate loss of income would the combination of the three represent the death of a wealthy person or a death of all finances?

  7. Like the comment above, I have just bought these and love them, but how often you can do readings as I want to keep doing them on myself first before doing other people. The book said you can do a 7 reading every day so they get used to you. A friend is also able to ask the cards specific questions, she shuffles the cards, asks the questions, cuts the cards into 3 piles and turns them over and the top card from each pile is the answer to the question, do you think this is okay, or do you have another spread for this? Thanks

    • It sounds to me like your friend has a great method. I personally use the Harsh Truth spread a lot- https://faerygodmotherfortunes.wordpress.com/2012/02/14/my-top-ten-relationship-card-spreads/
      As for how often, the 7 card daily is a good one to learn how to put the cards together to make sentences, plus it’s a great way of learning just how mundane the answers can sometimes be. Just make sure you write them down in the morning then go back later that night or first thing next morning and work out what the cards were referring to.

      • I just wanted to say an enormous thankyou for the extra insight your interpretations of Titania’s fortune cards. I have owned these cards for quite a while and have never quite got the hang of some particularly the snake card but now feel that I have much more of a handle on it. Some interpretations aren’t the same for me : for example I find that the Lilly not the ship is business / work related but that could be because I and a lot of my circle work in a hospital ! I also find it easier to have less nuances than presented but Other cards are now more available to me : for example the rider visiting aspect definately works and was one that had not occured to me. The combinations have been invaluable. I have consulted them during my own readings and quite a few times I have thought: Duh! Of course!
        My readings are much improved – and a lot more helpful!

        Thankyou !!!!

      • I just got a pack of cards and have been playing with the cards. My.question is if I do a weekly 9 card spread when do the actual events take place

        • In my experience it’s generally within seven days of the laying out the cards. The trick here is to realise that sometimes the cards are talking about something very mundane like a conversation with a friend or family member or a events at work. We often make the mistake of thinking these particular cards are talking about something huge and life changing but sometimes they pretty much just talk about the weather, so to speak!

  8. Hi Faery Godmother

    Do you think that I will work things out with my love? I am having a hard time believing that I will find a soul partner as my relationships enevitably never seem to work out…I am a very easy going kind of girl and oftem am left perpelexed as to what I could have done different, or asked in moments of truth? Kind Regards, Edwina

    • There are two things I know about love. One, we all deserve it but sometimes we have a hard time really believing that we do. And two, real love isn’t hard work.
      If you haven’t already checked them out, I have two articles that might help you. Firstly, the Top Ten Things You Should Know About Yourself Before You Fall In Love and the Top Ten Relationship spreads.
      There’s a spread in the Top Ten called Let Love In. Try that one out and see how you go. If you need any help interpreting what you get post it on the Post Your Reading Here page and I’ll tell you what I think.
      xoxoxox

  9. Thank you FGmother! I have done the let love in spread and the cards are as follows.
    1. coffin 2. woman. 3.mouse 4. star and 5. Bird.

    They are not very possitive cards at all and I feel more doomed than ever! What can I do? I am like I said very even temperamented and really a lovely person with no great hang ups. I just can’t seem to work out why the bad luck? Perhaps I have a hex upon me? I am very disheartened to say the least. Let me know what you make of these cards. I could not find the post your reading page. I hope this is okay to ask in this forum.

    Thank you for all your kind words and work xx Wink

    • Hi Edwina,

      I answered your post on the Post Your Readings Here page, hopefully that helped. I think maybe this reading was a reflection of what you were feeling when you laid the cards out? Don’t be disheartened, you will get there I promise!

  10. Hiya faerygodmother, I was wondering if you would be able to help me. I have had these cards for a very long time and I find your meanings much easier to identify with, but I sometimes struggle with the combinations and the whole ‘next, next to and beside’ thing in the book with the cards. Do your combinations relate to the next, next to etc or do you class them as combinations if they just appear in the same reading regardless of where they appear? I hope you get my meaning hehe. Thanks!

    • I read the cards like words in a sentence. So if you have three cards then those three cards form the “words”. It works for as many cards as you are comfortable stringing together- mostly I go up to seven for a daily read. So if you have the bear, the child, the clover and the fish, you’ve got a sentence that includes, something important, something new or a child, luck, and money. That could mean a whole heap of things but you can narrow it down to luck concerning important new money, or a young person/ child is lucky to find and important amount of money eg- trust fund. Your personal circumstances will help you narrow down possible meanings and sometimes it’s simply a vague message until something happens in your life that fits the bill.

      It depends what you mean by “where ever the appear in the reading”. All the readings I do with them involve grouping them, mostly in 3’s like the nine card spread, or by 3’s and 4’s for the 6 month spread. In the nine card spread you read them as groups of 3, first horizontally, then vertically, then the 2 diagonals.

      Does that answer your question?

  11. Hi Edwina,

    Thanks for the insight into meanings of the cards and ideas on layouts, they have been really helpful.

    I have a question, are the combination meanings the same in reverse, for example a Rider and a Man is a visit from a man. Would a Man and a Rider have the same meaning?

  13. Hi faerygodmother
    I had a nine card reading done by a friend at the weekend, but she is quite new to this so I have enjoyed delving a little deeper using your explanations. Could you just tell me what time period the nine card reading would usually refer to?
    Many thanks.

  14. Aloha,
    I was wondering what your meaning of the Star + Fish combination was? I did not see it listed under Star or Fish. Thanks! 🙂
