Take a deep breath + +Before you run the code, take a few deep breaths. Try to relax your body +and quiet your mind. Allow your thoughts to come and go for a while +without holding on to them. + + +### 2. Only the question! + +Focus for a moment or two on the question you would like to ask, or the +issue you would like some information about, BEFORE you run the code. + +The more effectively you can bring a relaxed focus to the issue at hand +and clear other thoughts from your mind, the more insightful and helpful +the reading will be. + + +### 3. Maintain your focus! + +Absent mindedly running the code process will not bring good results. +Focused attention helps to access the synchronicity necessary to gain +maximum value from an automated reading. + +Make sure you take enough time to relax and compose yourself before you +begin to select the cards. You will be amazed at the difference it +makes. + + +### 4. Be specific! + +The more specific and focused your question, the more appropriate and +valuable your answer will be. Again, it's a function of synchronicity. + +If your question is vague or unformed, how can the cards give you clear +answers or responses? If you approach the cards wanting an answer to a +certain question, yet when you select the cards you are thinking of 50 +other unrelated things, the answer you get will often not make sense. + +Clarity and a ferocious focus will be reflected back to you by +mind-blowingly insightful readings. + + +### 5. Read between the lines! + +The pre-written text will give you the _feeling_ that each card conveys +when it is selected in a certain position in the spread. + +If the literal text does not exactly fit your question or circumstance, +it is usually fairly obvious how you can "read between the lines a +little" and translate the message to suit your personal situation. + + +### 6. Accept the first reading! + +With an automated system like this, it's very tempting to immediately +repeat a reading if the answer you got was either not what you wanted to +hear, apparently inaccurate or a bit confusing. + +Don't! As long as you have followed the previous tips regarding clarity +and focus, the first reading will always be the most appropriate. + + +### 7. Beware of overuse! + +Consulting the cards many times a day, day after day, is completely self +defeating, as repeating a reading too soon for the same question will +usually create more confusion, not more clarity. + +A good rule of thumb: Until the circumstances surrounding your question +have changed, don't ask again! + + +### 8. This is not an exact science! + +There are no absolutes in Tarot. + +Use the readings as a kind of mirror - a way for you to examine a +reflection of your life, thoughts and emotions at any given moment in +time. + +Making critical life decisions based _entirely_ on an automated tarot +reading would probably not be a good idea. + + +### 9. Don't fear the "negative" cards! + +Some of the cards in the tarot deck are quite challenging to receive in +a reading, however, don't fear them, they are simply a reflection of +current influences and often have a positive side to them.. + +Seek understanding, even when the outlook seems bleak. This is where the +true value of tarot lies - _Nosce te ipsum._
