lesson 1 of tarot 101, do what feels right to you, at the time. there are times, when i just pull another card of the top, other times i re-shuffle. i usually pull one card, and study it, then if needed i pull another, until the meaning is clear. if i have to pull very many, and the reading is for me, i will usually let it sit for a while, and then come back, if it is for someone else, and they are not present, ie... on the forum, i let it sit, if they are present, then i will tell them what i see, and leave it at that. i just explain this is something the cards are not willing to talk about. but, at times i feel the urge, and will pick up the cards, and re-shuffle, and lay down a new spread asking for more information on the subject, phrasing the question as "i don't understand what you are telling me, please be more clear", this way i am not asking the same question, but for more clarity, on what has already been said. it all depends on what the cards tell me i should do.
i, by nature am a contradiction to myself.
