The Cards Reversed
Some cards have a right way up and a reversed way. However, this is only the case with the Sevens and some odd numbers Many designs are so ornate and intricately patterned that no difference can be seen, whichever way the cards come into your hand. If you are using a playing card that you cannot tell which is upside or down, it is wise to put an 'R' on the top left hand corner of each card after turning the pack the wrong way up, if you can. The meaning of each playing card is considerably modified if and when it is, 'reversed'. In some cases it is altered entirely (unlike the tarot card, where the meaning will be the same but it's reversed). Some card-readers do not recognize different meanings in the cards when they are 'reversed.' But the seer who wants to tell of subtle shades of meanings will do so from the first.
