Playing Cards And Birthdays

Today's playing cards are so commonplace that it may seem to be a stretch that they have meaning beyond their role in game-playing. However, playing cards are based on an ancient system similar to the Tarot. Each birthday of the year is associated with a main playing card, the Birth Card, and each tells its own story.
