52 Cards of Destiny?

I listened to an interesting podcast about playing cards today, which made me pick up my deck of playing cards and have a look through them -
52 Cards of Destiny with Mary Anne Costerella
"How many of us know that the standard playing card deck holds the promise of our destiny?
The standard 52-card draw, found in casinos and most modern homes, is also a divination tool that dates back thousands of years.
We all have a card based on our birthday.
Much like astrology, the Cards of Destiny portray, with uncanny accuracy, the characteristics of each of us.
What is your card?
How does your birthday map to a particular card?
What is your number?
What suit are you? You may be surprised at how accurate this tool is.
Listen as astrologer, Chris Flisher speaks with Mary Anne Costerella about this amazing divination tool.
You will be amazed at the precision."
Turning of the Wheel: "The Leo King"?
As I was listening to this podcast I thought, but what about the Joker card?
Which is why if I was going to do a reading I'd do it with tarot cards instead of playing cards.
But I don't use my tarot cards for doing readings anyway.
I just like to study the cards in a archetypical way.

Jung at heart?-)
Well, Speak of the Devil, More Lizards?
Signs That I Should See 'The Girl in the Spider's Web'?
The #7 is supposed to be my life path number and when I saw this card above in my deck I thought back to the post I wrote at the beginning of 2018 -
2018 and that Sinking/Synching Feeling?
This year I'd like to see more of Australia and do some traveling.
But I guess that's up to the dealer and the cards I have to play in the year ahead, right?
Turning of the Wheel: The Near Death Experience with Nancy Rynes?
The Wisdom of Oz ... and Aphorisms?
"Such is life." Ned Kelly
"Touch" the Deadman's Hand Coincidence
Four of a kind would be nice, I think ... and you can keep the queen of hearts thanks dealer.
Find the master playing card associated with your birthday – the Birth Card
Apparently my birth card is an ace of clubs I found out in the 'Year of the Dog' ironically enough by using the chart from the page linked above.
And I see that the day I got married on (November 19th) was an ace of clubs day, as well, and that turned out to be a losing hand in the long run:-)
The house always wins?
Life can be a house of cards as much as a winning hand it seems.
I'll stick with tarot cards thanks.
