The Suit of Hearts deals with the emotional level of consciousness and is associated with love, feelings, relationships and connections. Hearts are about displays of emotion, expression of feelings and the role of emotions in relation to others. The Hearts Cartomancy cards indicate that you are thinking with your heart rather than your head, and thus reflect your spontaneous responses and your habitual reactions to situations. Hearts are also linked to creativity, romanticism, fantasy and imagination. The negative aspects of the Suit of Hearts (i.e. when the Hearts cards appear reversed) include being overly emotional or completely disengaged and dispassionate, having unrealistic expectations and fantasizing about what could be. There may be repressed emotions, an inability to truly express oneself and a lack of creativity. The Suit of Hearts traditionally represents the west and autumn. If using an ordinary deck of playing cards, Hearts are represented by the Suit of Hearts.
Timing: When looking for time sensitive answers, Hearts generally means moderately slow, usually weeks to months.
Kings were always, by default, positive figures. They guaranteed the stability of a Kingdom. They cared for security and justice and would protect the people from invasions and aggressions. Unless surrounded by a negative spread or reversed, the King is always a strong positive figure in a Cartomancy spread. It often represents an important man in the questioner’s life or the questioner himself if a man. The Kings of the minor suits also reflect a certain aspect or face of the Emperor in the deck. Kings are considered to be the most mature of the Court Cards. They have traveled through life successfully and are now at the pinnacle of experience and understanding. Thus, the Kings represent the fully developed personalities of each of the Suits.
