How to use "In the cards" in context?

When something is meant to be it usually happens for a reason. This is especially true for relationships, as we are often told in cards. Cards can be a way for people to communicate their feelings, though often times it's not someone's desire to tell their romantic partner what they feel that actually makes the cards work.

Often the messages in cards are hidden and unspoken. But oftentimes, what's written in the cards speaks louder than words. What someone chooses to say to someone else through a symbol is often more telling than anything spoken aloud.
