When you are using tarot/oracle cards, and a card falls or flies out of the deck, do you take that as an important card to read? I personally only do sometimes. Sometimes I will feel like it was just an accident, and other times I will feel an extreme pull to look at the card, and take to heart what it means for me.

It depends. I normally work with my ancestors right before using tarot so if it happens while I'm shuffling, I'll take a look at the card because it might be a specific message. Sometimes it fits what's going on with me and sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't then I put it back in the deck. If it does, I'll leave the card out and put it to the side but continue to do my spread. If it adds to the spread, then great. If not, I'll meditate on it to see if there's something I'm missing.

Witch priest for me personally I honestly don't think every time is a powerful sign. Sometimes I can truly feel that though. The pull to it is so strong!

When a card falls, it can be simple clumsiness.

 

When a card jumps - I pay attention.

Sometimes it's the card not wanting to be a part of the reading.

I just go with my gut. Most of the time I feel it needs to be a part of the reading but like others have said, sometimes it's just an accident,

I am curious, as almost all my readings are done just by cars jumping from the deck. I usually will request an answer and number or cards, and also tend to see the cards that jump in my head before hand. Always wondered if I am making this reading happen or spirit.

I have put fallen cards back in, thinking it was an accident, and then pulled the same one. I just find the cards that come to me more accurate.

Divination is by no means my strong suit, however, when a card jumps out of the deck theres a very distinct 'gut feeling' as to whether I should look at it or not. I generally go with it.

It depends on the matter I'm doing the divination for, but yes, I do typically bring it into the reading under its own category - "Navi - HEY!!"

I tend to see these cards as influences I may not be aware of that I need to take into consideration when doing my reading.

I also have the gut feeling as well. Sometimes I just KNOW to put it back, that it means nothing, and others its screaming out to me, and the card is spot on for what I need to know.

Go with the gut.  At times I will pick a card up, look at it and put it back.  Other times, I will study it to get the meaning of it.  I always take note, even if it's just an accident because often it will come up in the reading.

...you need a lot of courage in this life, to make some of the choices you have to make. That's natural. I mean, you can't sit back like an amoeba and just regenerate yourself. You've got to be an exciting, dynamic human being, and there are choices you're going to make that's going to cause you some difficulty, and if it requires some courage on your part, then do it. - Charles Perkins, Arunta Elder, 1998

If I'm not decidedly in the mode to "read" and just shuffling and being careless/distracted I put it back, now usually without even looking because it didn't seem applicable to what I was going to read on typically, if ever or maybe very vaguely at best.

But If I'm already thinking of my question with focus, and settled into that "mode", and while shuffling something takes flight, it always ends up being an important part of the reading I find.

I've never had this happen, and now it's happened twice in two weeks. Last week a card jumped out telling me to accept an incoming offer. Four days later I got a random offer for a part time job. I normally would have taken a while to think about it (I work a lot already, and I didn't apply for this job, or even know it existed), but now I feel like I need to take it and see what happens. Two days ago I got a warning about an incoming negative disruption (though I was doing a reading for my husband at the time, so I don't know if it is meant for me or him). And I now I wonder if I would have ignored the jumping cards if I hadn't read this thread, since it was on my mind when it happened.

Very interesting! Did you normally ignore them or do you mean a card has never fell out?

The second, I've never had a card fall out on me before.

It happens to me a lot but that might be more likely due to my terrible shuffling skills, rather than spirit communication. Yet, they still manage to use those opportunities to send a message.


Yay for Sychronicity though. Could be that your tarot spirits knew that you'd be ore open to recieve a message in this fashion after having it on your mind from the thread

If it happens to me I put it to the side for an "additional message". RG, it happens to me a lot too. I can't shuffle sometimes either!
