I was just reading through the fortune telling forum and noticed that some people need information such as time of birth and whatnot. I don't use this, I use the emotions of the person instead. I was wondering what different kind of "methods" (if that's even the correct term for it) does everyone use? Also, what are some benefits of using your method?
Everyone has their own method that they use because some are easier to use or they're just better at it. I do tarot readings and since I have a strong sixth sense and feeling for emotion it's easier and best if I use the method of emotions. I analyze the things my card is telling me and make the best I can depending what I know. It's not really that wise to use my strategy because it's not always going to be accurate, but when it is it's really strong because of the analyzation.
if they are sitting across from me i ask them to shuffle the deck and cut it while focusing on their question. [they can't tell me until after because i don't want to cloud my reading] then i draw the spread using the cards that 'call to me from each stack.
if its an online reading, i ask for their question, then i repeat the question using their username like 'will randomuser123 travel' or 'does jane doe like randomuser123.'
i guess i could shuffle the deck myself every time, but i feel they charge the cards better since its their question.
