How do you separate Tarot cards? You can also “cut” the deck by dividing it into several piles and then combining them into one again. Or you can try spreading the cards facedown on the table and sweeping them into a big, messy pile before tapping them into place again.
What order should tarot cards be? The tarots of the major arcana are, in order, as follows: I juggler, or magician; II papess, or female pope; III empress; IV emperor; V pope; VI lovers; VII chariot; VIII justice; IX hermit; X wheel of fortune; XI strength, or fortitude; XII hanged man; XIII death; XIV temperance; XV devil; XVI lightning-struck tower;
How are the Major Arcana divided? The Major Arcana contains the “name” cards like Death, the Devil, and the Lovers, and the Minor Arcana is divided into four suits (Pentacles, Cups, Wands, and Swords).
Does the order of tarot cards matter? Remember, there is no hierarchy of tarot decks, so be sure to choose whichever deck truly tantalizes your soul. The Rider-Waite Tarot Deck is a wonderful first deck because so many future decks are based on its iconic illustrations.
