How to Shuffle Tarot Cards

By Caroline :: :: Leave a comment

Tarot cards can sometimes be difficult to shuffle. This is because they are often a different shape and larger than regular playing cards. Also, if you have inherited your cards, they may be old and quite delicate, and in need of care.

Here are some easy ways to shuffle your cards gently:

1. Table Spread:

Lay all the cards on the table in front of you and swirl them around. When you are finished, you can gather the cards together in a stack again or leave them spread out on the table and randomly choose your cards.

2. Three by Three:

Cut the deck into three stacks. Then cut each pile into three smaller stacks. Reassemble the complete deck by collecting the nine small stacks at random. Repeat to complete the process.

3. Ordered Randomness:

Sort your cards, one by one, into stacks of five. Many people use the shape of a five pointed star or you can just put the stacks into a line. If none of the cards have stuck together, the last card you lay out will fall onto stack 3.

Enjoy and remember to focus on your question as you shuffle!

It is really important to practice aloud when you are learning the Tarot. This will help you to become more comfortable talking about the cards and thinking on the spot when giving a reading to another person. It will also test your knowledge and help you identify which cards you know, and which cards you need to study.
