Step 1: Preparation and Taboos
First heaviest, what is important: Before using the tarot cards, make sure that your body and mind are in a good and peaceful state. Reading the tarot is a laborious job, and you must concentrate to understand the meaning presented by the tarot cards.
- When is it best to speculate?
- Any time is fine as long as your mental state is clear enough.
- Where to speculate?
Find a location that won’t interfere with you. Ideal location: go to your peaceful nest with friends, make a cup of black tea, and read your destiny together!
What to use to speculate?
Tarot cards, of course! At this time, the speculation method is carried out using twenty-two large tarot cards.
A black cloth. Basically, Tarot needs a table with enough space to arrange the cards, and prepare a clean cloth to spread on the table, so that the cards will not come into direct contact with the table and become dirty easily. As for the suggestion that you use black, it is because, scientifically and speculatively, black is the color that best gathers light and energy.
What is taboo?
It is not possible to speculate on the same question twice within the same entity. The Tower Night Card is a tool for you to spy on a corner of your destiny, and it can be said to be a partner on the journey of destiny. Therefore, you must place absolute trust in it. If it tells you that the results are not satisfactory, you should still maintain a respectful attitude. Don’t have a “calculate until it comes out” mentality — fate is not a trial-and-error game. If you go your way, your tarot cards won’t be willing to show you any correct answers in the future.
Be sure to trust your tarot cards.
Don’t lose a single card. A set of cards, like siblings, has its integrity, no matter which one is lost, it is a kind of damage to the card itself. So my advice to you is: please keep it carefully.
Avoid unexpected situations when shuffling cards. In the shuffling process explained for you in the third step, the following situations will occur: shuffle, shuffle a card suddenly turn red and face up; or shuffle some cards to the ground; When the cards are placed in the wrong pile, etc. You should try to avoid these surprises because they all mean one thing: Your mind may not be focused enough. This will have the most severe impact on the speculative results.
Step 2: Identify the problem and guess
Once everything is in place, the next step is to confirm the questions you want to ask. Do remember: the problem must be identified before proceeding to the next step – “shuffling”. Once the shuffling starts, the questions can no longer be replaced.
Step 3: Shuffle
There are two different actions to shuffle. Both shuffling are repeated for each guess.
Let’s do the first shuffle first. Put the twenty-two large tarot cards face down and stack them in your hand. Concentrate and don’t think about anything. Then, begin to obey your own will, take a drop from the middle of the deck, and place it on the top of the deck. Repeat the same action several times, the number of times depends on your will.
Next, prepare the second shuffle by laying the cards on the flat surface. Likewise, you still have to focus on laying out the cards in a circle and starting shuffling with both hands in a clockwise direction. While shuffling the cards, mentally narrate the questions you are about to speculate and think about the cards you are about to adopt.
Listen to your inner voice, you will feel when you can stop; at this time, slowly gather the cards (don’t forget to do it in a clockwise manner), and finally restore it to a stack of cards, in a horizontal direction Put it away.
In addition, there are some rules of speculation that require the person asking the question to concentrate on his own and to meditate on his own question. At this point, you just need to keep your mind clear; when to stop shuffling the deck is up to the person who asks.
Step 4: Cut the cards
The cut card is the moment when the inquirer shines. When you’ve shuffled the cards and stacked them face down in a stack, ask the person who asked to cut the cards. Of course, if the person asking is yourself, you have to cut the cards yourself.
First of all, ask the opponent to concentrate, pick up a card from the top of the card stack according to your own will (absolutely must not take it), and place the drop card below the original card stack (that is, in the direction close to you), it becomes two drops (see the picture on the right).
Then, take another drop from the top of the second drop; this will be placed on top of the first. Now, you have three cards in front of you.
Next, it’s up to you to stack the cards back. First, pick up the first drop and place it on top of the second drop; then pick up the combination of the first drop and the second drop and place it on top of the third drop. In this way, it is restored to a stack of cards.
We have one last cut action left. In the process just now, the cards were all facing down. We’re now going to turn the cards straight down (see image on the left). This action must not be mistaken: if you are speculating for the opponent, your rotation direction is counterclockwise; that is, you need to rotate the left end of the tarot card 90 degrees downward to become straight. If you’re speculating for yourself, rotate the card 90 degrees clockwise. If you make a mistake, the meaning of the entire board will be completely reversed, so be careful!
Step 5: Arrangement Type
Shuffling and cutting cards are the most accurate steps in the whole process. The next row is much simpler. You just need to arrange the cards according to the arrangement you just decided to use. Remember this:
All tarot cards must be kept face down during the arranging process. Usually, only a part of the cards will be used on the card type, and the rest of the cards will remain face down and stacked aside.
Step 6: Opening and Interpretation
After the cards are arranged, open each card in order. The way to flip the card is from left to right. After all the cards have been turned over, it’s time for you to interpret them.
