How Do You Shuffle And Cut Your Tarot Cards? I was asked recently by a visitor if she “had” to shuffle and then cut her cards as so many sites she had visited recommended that this was always done. She wanted to know if she could go with her gut feeling rather than follow a rigid protocol.
My answer was basically “yes” because I don’t believe there is just one right way of shuffling and cutting. I do recommend that tarot cards should be shuffled prior to doing a new reading but how long you spend doing so and whether (and how many times) you cut the cards is entirely a personal choice.
Personally I open myself to spirit and trust them to nudge my intuition when the time is right for me to stop cutting or shuffling and to deal the spread. The process is never identical and varies in time and the number of shuffles and cuts I use.
However, there is a caveat. Whereas I do think that you should always trust your intuition to get it right for you if possible that doesn’t mean it’s always the best way especially for new tarot readers. If you find that going with your gut results in your readings becoming less accurate then you might want to try a more formal and fixed approach to shuffling and cutting and see if anything else works better for you.
