How to tackle if my tarot and/or cards are not shuffling well.

If you’re finding that your tarot cards are not shuffling well, there are a few things you can try to improve the shuffle and maintain the energy of the cards:

  1. Card Cleaning: Over time, oils, dirt, and other residues from your hands can accumulate on the cards, making them stick together. Use a soft cloth to gently wipe the surface of each card.

  2. Environment: Ensure that the surface you are shuffling on is clean and smooth. If it’s too sticky or has friction, the cards might not shuffle well. Consider using a table or a cloth that allows the cards to glide smoothly. Use talcum powder on each and every surface of cards. 

  3. Card Size: If your hands are small or the cards are large, you may find it challenging to shuffle them effectively. Experiment with different shuffling techniques or consider using a smaller deck.

  4. Shuffling Techniques:

    • Overhand Shuffle: This is a simple method where you shuffle the cards by taking small packets from the top and letting them fall into the other hand.
    • Riffle Shuffle: Divide the deck into two halves and allow the cards to cascade together by releasing them with your thumbs.
    • Cutting the Deck: Instead of shuffling, you can also cut the deck into sections and rearrange them.
  5. Card Flexibility: If your cards are new, they might be stiff. To increase their flexibility, gently bend each card back and forth along its long side. Be careful not to bend them too much to avoid damage.

  6. Energetic Cleansing: Some people believe in the energetic connection between the reader and the cards. You can cleanse the energy of your cards by holding them in your hands and focusing on positive energy. You can also use various methods such as smudging with sage or placing them under the moonlight.

  7. Organize Your Cards: Ensure that your cards are organized properly within the deck. If cards are out of order or reversed from their usual orientation, it can make shuffling more difficult.

  8. Practice: Shuffling tarot cards is a skill that improves with practice. Experiment with different techniques and find what feels most comfortable for you.

Remember that tarot is a personal and intuitive practice, so feel free to adapt these suggestions to suit your preferences and energy. If you’re still having difficulty, don’t hesitate to explore alternative shuffling methods or consult with experienced tarot readers for additional tips.
