: : Is it on the cards or in the cards and where all can I use the same?

: I have heard "It is in the cards". I take this as a reference to fortune teller cards.
: People use this phrase when they feel some events are meant to be.

"It's on the cards" is also used, at least in the UK. That means "there's a good chance it will happen".
