Hi, I’m Brigit, Founder of Biddy Tarot – the place to be if you’re an aspiring Tarot reader and you want to transform your life and others’ with Tarot.

And this is a special Ask Brigit video post where I answer your questions about the Tarot.

Here’s something I get asked A LOT. “How do you shuffle the Tarot cards?”

It may seem pretty simple on the surface, but trust me, there ARE a lot of different ways to shuffle the Tarot cards. Here are just a few:

Method #1: Overhand Shuffle

This is the most common way of shuffling a deck of cards. Hold the deck in one hand and use your other hand to shuffle the cards from one side to the other of the main deck.

Method #2: Cut the Deck

Cut the deck into a number of different piles and then bring those piles back together again.

Method #3: Casino Style

Cut the deck into two and then fan one pile into the other.

Method #4: Messy Pile Shuffle

Lay the cards face-down on the table and then use your hands to spread out the cards in a big, messy pile. Then, bring the cards back together into one pile.

So which is the right method? Well, try them out and choose what works best for you. You might also use a combination of methods in your readings. For example, I shuffle overhand, cut the deck into three piles, turn one pile 180 degrees, put them back together and shuffle again.

You might be wondering why I turn a pile 180 degrees. Well, that’s because I work with reversed cards and I like to make sure I’m getting turning the cards upright and reversed as I shuffle.

So which shuffling method do you prefer? Leave your comments below.
