Most tarot card readers have experienced tarot cards falling out of the deck while shuffling. These falling cards are often referred to as jumping cards.
No matter how carefully the cards are being shuffled, if a card or two are meant to fall out they will.
While other tarot readers will take these fallen cards as a message, and put them aside to add to the reading.
There are also some tarot readers that take note of the the cards that jumped out, then put them back into the deck and continue shuffling. If any of the previous fallen cards show up in the reading, they then take it as a very significant message.
What you do with cards falling out of the deck really comes down to personal preference. Just be sure to have your own rules for this situation.
If you are unsure about whether to ignore jumping cards or not, just ask your spirit guides to help you decide.
I certainly believe the cards fall out of the deck for a reason, and the significance of the message in these cards can hold some good answers to what the person you are reading for is thinking, worried about, wanting to know, or needs to know right now.
What to Do When Too Many Cards Fall Out
Sometimes quite a lot of cards (for example 5 – 6 or more) can fall out while your are shuffling the deck.
In this situation you may want to reconsider whether to put these cards aside, or to just put them back into the deck and continue shuffling.
If you are unsure about whether to ignore this many jumping cards or not, just ask your spirit guides to help you decide.
Sometimes when you are new to shuffling tarot cards, it can be quite difficult to handle shuffling 78 cards at once, so of course a lot of cards are likely to fall out of the deck. In this situation it is best to put the cards back into the deck and practice shuffling until you are used to them.
Another time to reconsider what to do with too many jumping tarot cards, is on days where you seem to be clumsy, or very distracted.
In-fact it is never a good idea to do a tarot reading if you are too distracted or unwell. You need to have a clear head when performing a tarot reading.
