That's pretty neat, 1BlueRose68.
Did your mom learn tasseography from someone else or did she teach herself? Must've been a fun experience for her coffee guests! Did she ever show you how to do it? And do you still have your old cards?
I had a great-great aunt who was known in the family for reading playing cards quite well. Never got to meet her, sadly. I've read tarot for much of my life, but I'm about as psychic as a brick so I mainly find them helpful from a psychological standpoint- the images and symbolism can get me thinking in a new direction about a situation that I might not have otherwise considered.
