Tools You Will Need: Tarot deck, a quiet space, a few minutes of your time

Step One: Shuffle the Cards.

The first step to any Tarot reading is the shuffle. For many Tarot readers this is the most important part of the reading. There is no right or wrong way to shuffle your Tarot deck, but it is important that you do. As you do, think about the things that will be most important to you in the week ahead. Think about the reason you are consulting the Tarot for a weekly forecast. And think about the questions that you have as well.

As you do, be sure that your thoughts are laser focused on your questions. You don’t want to have generic questions like, “What’s my week going to be like?” Instead, think about the questions that are the reason you picked up your cards in the first place. “Will I get that job offer this week?” “Will we close the house this week?” “Will I have a date this week?” Shuffle, and ponder.

Step Two: Cut the Tarot.

When you cut your Tarot deck you are doing the same thing that you would with any other deck of cards. Just cutting them! Again, there is no wrong way to do so. My own personal preference is to cut the Tarot into three different piles, and then I draw my cards from each of those piles.

For example I take card one from the first pile, card two from the second pile, card three from the third pile, card four from the first pile, and so on. This is just a habit that I have formed from my earliest days of reading Tarot, and now it’s the only way I do it. For your weekly forecast, choose the method of cutting the Tarot deck in the way that feels the most comfortable to you.

Step Three: Draw the Cards.

As mentioned, there is no right or wrong way to draw your cards. I do mine right after I have cut the deck. And you can do it however you want. I’ve seen people fan out their cards into a pile and draw from there. I’ve seen folks draw them right from the top of the deck. When my son has a reading he always pulls his first card from the top of the deck and then randomly, or not so randomly, chooses the rest of his cards from the pile.

Follow your heart. You may even find that cards “jump out” at you, as they often do with me. Do not dismiss those! They pop out for a reason! When you are performing a weekly forecast with the Tarot, you want to draw 7 cards. One for each day of the week!


Step Four: Read the Cards!

Now that you have your 7 cards, lay them out in front of you by the week day. So your first card may be Monday, or if you are drawing on a Wednesday it may be the Wednesday card. Lay out your 7 cards and before you do anything with them, just have a look and really listen to your heart and your intuition about what the cards are telling you.

What are your first reactions? Do you feel good? Are you getting words or people or images jump into your thoughts when you lay them out? If so, that is your intuition telling you what your weekly horoscope with the Tarot is. Make notes if you want, or just key in on the days of the week and their corresponding cards to see if anything specific pops out.

Where are the feel good cards? On what days of the week does it look like you may have some problems? This is the Tarot giving you answers about your upcoming week!

Go through each day one by one to get a feel for the cards. Here you will learn exactly what will be the key event in your life, on each day of the upcoming week! Need help interpreting a card? Let us know!
