Most of us faced with so many different cards and interpretation of tarot that attempting to understand the cards become confusing. Here we are only talking about Gypsy cards, not Rider Waite type of cards. Although both cards evolved from the same source, they took a different direction. The Rider Waite was given different interpretation then it use to represent. The Gypsy cards remained more faithful to the original tarot card, however it become limited to only 36 cards. Some, such as Art Deco and Gypsy Oracle Tarot offers 52 cards, which gives a more thorough explanation the tarot intended for. Reading these different type of cards will not change the meaning however. For example the card of Sweetheart or Queen of Hearts might be portrayed differently with each tarot, however, it will only change the portrayal of the image itself, not the meaning. The meaning will always remain the same with every tarot. The Sweetheart is representing the creation of matter, she is Eva, Earth. That is why the Sweetheart always defined as a woman of gentle nature, fruitfulness, feelings, emotions, protection, so forth. Therefore, no matter which tarot you have, Gypsy, Art Deco, Biedermeier, Oracle, or other type of card. The difference you will find is that some cards have 36 images and other card will have 52 cards. When you only have 36 card you will not have the card of Merchant, Conversation, Servant, Foreign Woman, so forth.
However, 52 cards will have all of the cards the Zigeuner tarot offer, cards like the card of Sweetheart, Widow, Widower, Thought, etc. And in both tarot they will have identical interpretation. What about cards such as the Le Normand? They have different images altogether, therefore, they must mean different thing. With Lenormand you will also find the card of Sweetheart as a Lady and the card of Lover as a Gentleman. Whilst the card of Message in Gypsy card represented with Hermes in Lenorand it changed into a Cavalier, who is in the service of the king. Hermes and the Cavalier is one of the same. Hermes was the messenger between gods and the mortals, the Cavalier also a messenger of the Gods (the King) and the mortals (the so called commoners). They both hiding their true purpose, to spy on the general population, to assure the power of the gods. Whilst the card of Lilly in Gypsy card represented with the card of Visitor. The flower is portrayal of 'some Money', clover is gift, that is, it is earth's free gift which will result in good fortune, good harvest.
You will find differences between the two cards in the meaning of hope and desire. Desire in Lenormand is portrayed with stars, in Gypsy Tarot it is usually a woman dreaming of something. In Gypsy tarot Desire will give you a more clear picture of its positive and negative meaning, whilst in Lenormand it is less obvious.
Therefore, both the Lenorand type of card or the Gypsy card can be used to answer questions about matters of the heart, job, security, which defines the inquirer's state of mind, seeing the future as uncertain, something that is out of his or her hands. With Sanskrit interpretation, the Gypsy card will guide the inquirer toward a predictable future, where you can be certain about the destination of life's voyage, realising that the future is in your hands, if you learn how important this moment of time, the meaning of here and now.
