    Default New to Tarot

    I just got a the Legend : Arthurian Tarot deck, and Every time I lay out a spread, I invariably come up with two cards or more of the same suit and order. How many times do you shuffle the deck to randomize it? what would be the best way to Randomize?

    I know that it's not unheard of or uncommon for the cards to happen like that, but since I just got the deck I consider that spread to be a foul. Am I wrong in thinking this?

    Any and all advice you can give to me, and fellow Newcomers is apreciated.

    You shuffle until you feel it is time to stop, cut the cards in three piles, then put the first pile on the last and that pile on the middle.

    You definitely have the knack of it. Try living your life the way the Tarot tells you that you should. It would make for a very ordinary life.

    You are a prickly man aren't you? Why don't you just crush every one's beliefs and the way they live, your opinions are not gospel but in your egotistical little mind they are. If you have nothing constructive to say why do you bother? I don't think I have seen anything coming out on this board from you but rhetoric, ridicule, and criticism, you ain't all that Mister.

    Do you think it fair to let people believe in false hope? Which is the greater evil?

    Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law... ...they can be what they choose to be. It's them who will suffer the consequences, whether good or bad. So let them be.

    93, but what is your point, exactly?

    There is nothing wrong with working with the tarot, it hones your meditation skills, your intuition, it is required in certain orders. The tarot can be a wonderful key to awakening the innate powers within us. As long as it is used and not hurting anyone, what is the harm?

    I am sorry if I came across that I do not think there is value in Tarot, I do. I use the Tarot almost every day.

    What I was pointing to is that the fellow first asks a question about being a complete novice and then suddenly he has developed his psychic prowess so far that he automatically knows exactly when to stop.

    If you want to learn magick, then the first step is to be prepared to learn.
