What does “cut” mean when dealing with Tarot Cards?
My friend started reading Tarot Cards, and she doesn’t know either, and I won’t be able to ask anyone else until December. If anyone knows it would be a greatly appreciated, and clear up a lot of confusion. Thank you for taking the time to read (and hopefully answer) this question.
Answer by Aingeal
Same as cutting a deck of playing cards, divide them. Usually in half or thirds, etc.
Answer by Slightly Amused 4th Account
Splitting the deck into halves or thirds.

When you “cut” the deck, what you are doing is taking the deck you have been shuffling and laying it out for you or the querent to remove into piles (usually 3 in Tarot) and then reassemble.
This is done in non-tarot card games as well. Stage magicians will ask people they are doing card tricks for if they want to cut the deck, thereby rearranging it and seemingly proving there is “nothing up their sleeve”.
I do this when I read Tarot, even though I shuffle, I let the Querent cut the deck.

When you cut the deck, you are splitting it into parts. For instance, many people “cut the deck” with playing cards. They take half of it and put the bottom half that dropped to the top half. Many readers believe you are to cut the deck three times–into thirds–using your left hand, and then the last part–the third cut–goes on the top, the middle, and the first part that dropped is at the bottom.
How to know lucky color, lucky day, time through Tarot Cards?

This is very simple
Shuffle major arcana ONLY and pick one card . 1. Color – Look at the card and see what star sign is in conjunction with this card. …For example – if you picked the Death card your color will be black, ruled by Scorpio.. If you picked Strength your color will be Yellow Ruled by Leo.
Color and Star Signs – Aries – Red – The Emperor
Leo – Yellow The Sun
Scorpio – Black Death
Virgo – Green The Hermit
Taurus – Brown The Pope
Cancer – orange The Chariot
Gemini – Pink The Lovers
Libra – orange Justice
Sagittarius – Purple Temperance
Pisces – blue The High priestess
Aquarius – turquoise The World
Capricorn – Grey The Devil
2. Day – Same as the top. Shuffle the Major Arcana only and pick one card
The Sun, Sunday
Monday -Moon, High Priestess
Tuesday-Mars, The Tower
Wednesday- Mercury, Magician
Thursday -Jupiter, Fortune
Friday -Venus, Empress
Saturday -Saturn, World
Finally, Time. You can use the whole deck for this one.
This is the easiest one, Pick one card for example the Page of Cups. Then put it back in the deck, shuffle the deck then lay out 24 cards ,one card for each hour, keep repeating this until the Page of cups makes an appearance depending on what hour it falls that is your lucky time..
Tarot cards: Can you influence the cards you select with your fears, hopes?
If reading your own tarot cards, can the cards you pick be influenced by your fears, hopes etc. Thanks!
Answer by Terry
The cards can’t, but your interpretation surely can be influenced. The cutting of the deck 3 times to the left by the person seeking a reading is one of the gates that hold away influence.
