Streetside fortune telling  
So this morning on the way to work I found a handful of playing cards lying on the sidewalk. A 5 of diamonds, 7 of spades, and a 6, 8, queen, and king of clubs.

I'm sure this is a portent of something, I'm just not sure what. Low pay, moderate troubles, and playing auspistice for a married couple?

okay well, i did a little research, and this is what i'm understanding from those cards:

Spades are associated with winter, so this may have something to do with something that occurred then or will occur next winter. Suggests betrayal or loss of trust or someone you trust, dishonesty, poor advice, obstacles to success that may come from yourself. It probably upset or will upset you pretty badly. If you remember what cards were nearby this one, they may have something to do with this event, or other emotional issues.

Diamonds associated with spring and the physical, and/or intellect. Can both represent success and financial struggles, but appear for the most part to show happiness and good changes, especially for family.

There are a fair amount of clubs in there - that suggests concern for achievement and recognition. Clubs are associated with summer and creativity.

Financial help and/or success - success in general. Adaptation.

Karma. Jealousy or greed, and trouble with relationships - specifically business ones. May have to do with some sort of remote communication like a letter, telephone call, or email.

A confident, focused woman with dark hair and eyes, who can perhaps give you good advice. May be older and married.

Also dark haired and eyed, a man with good character. Loyal, generous, friendly and honest. Extroverted, spirited and determined, somewhat like your Queen - maybe they're related? He has good instincts, and if he's older, he might be rather spiritual.

hope that helps?? i'm more familiar with tarot divination than playing cards, and i don't take it terribly seriously...

—wow. That's... not at all what I was expecting but still pretty awesome. Interesting that seven's a sign of betrayal when it's traditionally considered a lucky number.

yeah! seven in general seems to suggest change and surprises in card divination. in any case, i only learned that from like, a little less than an hour on google, so. i'm hardly an expert. (i'm glad i got an excuse to learn about this, though!! it seems a lot simpler than the tarot and the cards are an awful lot cheaper...)

obviously not gonna ask for details, but does it seem to have any merit to it?

Well, they were based on the tarot to some degree to begin with, so.

Not sure! There's a lot of possibilities. The king and queen could obviously be relatives of mine, or some teachers I have, and I have a lot of issues with winter in general, etc. etc.
