Will luck be a lady tonight? Or must we play the hand we're dealt? There is no need to use tarot cards to learn what the future holds: a regular deck of playing cards will do the trick - as long as you know how to read them.

There are even suggestions on how to do a quick reading when you're short on time - so you will always know what's in the cards.
