Important notes for releases
To start the prediction, select the oracle, layout and deck of cards. There are three options available.1. The program shuffles a deck of cards, lay out the cards itself and outputs a report with the interpretation of the layout.
2. The program shuffles a deck of cards, you choose cards from the deck yourself and draw cards one by one onto the table.
3. You choose to work with an empty project. In this way, you can manually select previously known cards and put them into positions in the layout.
To read the layout, you can use one or more built-in systems of card interpretations (for example, "Keywords", "Phoenix tarot", etc.) or write your own interpretation both for the entire layout as a whole and for each individual card, or use and both together.

Card Titles Manager
With Card Titles Manager you can create your own Card Titles, for example, you can rename the title "The Magician" to "El Mago" or "Ten of Pentacles" to "10 of Disks" or even rename all suits at one time, for example, all the "Wands" to "Sceptres" or all the"Pages" to "Princesses", and save the unique sets. No limits for Card Titles sets.
Using Decks Creator, Titles and Meanings Managers you can create your own decks. You can change the standard Major Arcans order or set up your own order of cards in the deck, for example, by making a 'Fool' card numbering '0' (zero) and exchanging 8th and 11th Arcana.
By default, the order of the tarot cards in the deck is as follows:
Numbering of Major Arcans and Four Suits:
- Major Arcans numbered from 1.jpg to 22.jpg
- Wands Suit numbered from 23.jpg to 36.jpg
- Cups Suit numbered from 37.jpg to 50.jpg
- Swords Suit numbered from 51.jpg to 64.jpg
- Coins Suit numbered from 65.jpg to 78.jpg
Ordering of the Court cards:
- Page (Princess)
- Knight (Prince)
Important notice about The Fool, Justice and Strength cards:
- The Fool card is always #21 (filename: 21.jpg)
- Justice card is always #8 (filename: 8.jpg)
- Strength card is always #11 (filename: 11.jpg)
Why the Fool is not 0, but 21?
The sequence of cards based on THE ANCIENT QABBALAH tradition (G.O.M.) where each card is associated with one letter of the Ancient Alphabet. The order of letters: Aleph(1), Beth(2), ..., Shin(21), Tau(22). The last Tau is 22 and associated with The World, the letter Shin is 21 and associated with The Fool. The same thing with Justice and Strength cards.
