I received a question this week about how do you know when to pull tarot cards? I am sure that every reader has their own method but here is what I do.
Most of my work is online. When I work in person I use a slightly different method but for online work this is what I do. I shuffle the cards until they feel “right”. Then I take the cards from the top of the deck. If I card “flies” out of the deck I will use that card for the one I would otherwise have chosen first. Sometimes I cut the deck as i shuffle and sometimes I do not. I all depends on what feels “right”.
This is once again about intuition. We have to go with our gut. Often when I work with clients I answer a lot of different questions so I will pull cards quickly and reshuffle quickly so as to not waste their time but just shuffling. But there is also a certain feeling that you get when you shuffle often and you just know that the cards are ready.
This is also about trust. You must trust yourself to choose the “right” cards. If you doubt that the cards are right before you even pull them you are sabotaging the success of your reading before you even begin!
Do you have any special tricks or methods?
