        Our deck of playing cards is in truth a symbolic representation of our calendar.
        The numeric values in a deck of cards match our calendar perfectly.

        52 cards = 52 weeks of the year
        12 face cards = 12 months;  also 12 signs of the zodiac
        4 suits = 4 seasons
        13 cards in each suit = 13 weeks in each season / or the 13 lunar cycles (full and new moons)
        2 colors of the deck = 2 halves of the year (summer solstice and winter equinox)

        But the real clincher is when we add up the numeric, or spot, value of each card in the deck.  The entire deck added together comes to 364.  But with the addition of the Joker, which is considered to have a spot value of 1.25, we get 365.25,..exactly the number of days in our calendar year.  The extra .25 accounts for leap year.

        Our cards are in perfect design for planet Earth solely.  They do not represent the cycles of any other planet known to exist.  Our deck of cards truly are uniquely devised with us in mind.    Cool huh?


        Some more fun and useless trivia....

        Historical Personage:

        King of Hearts = Charlemagne
        King of Spades = King David
        King of Diamonds = Julius Caesar
        King of Clubs = Alexander the Great

        Queen of Hearts = Judith (of the Book of Judith, an Apocryphal Book of the Bible)
        Queen of Spades = Pallas, a.k.a. Minerva
        Queen of Diamonds = Rachel (of the Bible)
        Queen of Clubs = Argine, an anagram of Regina, Latin for 'queen'

        Jack of Hearts = "La Hire," a famous French warrior a.k.a. Etienne de Vignoles
        Jack of Spades = Hogier the Dane, one of Charlemagne's paladins
        Jack of Diamonds = Hector of Troy, or alternately, Roland of France
        Jack of Clubs = Sir Lancelot

        Now that's interesting. If this was 1986, I'd never have run into this information/trivia.  There's something to be said for the net! (And of course, this wonderful site!)

        Al Gore wishes he was the creator of the internet!!  lol  Numerous computer science engineers and visionaries, before Al Gore even stepped into the scene, are the true creators of the internet.

        Numerology is a wonderful thing! No wonder we used to read our destiny from the cards. Thanks for pointing this out ishin, now I have developed more respect for my deck of cards.  It's like this gave them a new meaning.
