1. I’m confused how you can pull a reversed card…

    1. TheGoddess says:

      If the card is faced away from you, it’s a reversed card.

      Also, depending on the deck and if it comes with a book explaining a certain spread, it breaks it down by card and where it’s positioned in your reading – first card placed, second card placed, third card placed, etc. The position it’s in and the explanation for that position usually will indicate whether it’s a reversed card or not for you.

      I own a smaller portable set and the book it comes with gives the meanings for upright as well as its reversed meaning. As I handle the cards more, I realize what makes sense to me and what doesn’t when I’m inquiring about a situation.

      My book reads that the first card you throw, no matter what, is always assumed upright. If a card comes reversed, it does not necessarily mean a “negative”, it usually means just the opposite of the card’s upright meaning, or a weaker message. When I shuffle, I tend to cut the deck up depending on my mood, anywhere from 3 to 7 times. Then as I go put the cards together, I take one pile upright, one pile downside, and then shuffle some more. By then, my cards are no longer going in one direction but are mixed up nicely to reflect some up some down. All this time with all this shuffling and cutting, I clear out my mind. Then and only then do I throw cards down.

      But that’s just me. You may do yours differently.
