For this ritual, we are assuming that the cards themselves have already been initiated and blessed.
Reader and Querant(s) are within the sacred space, as well as the deck (on an altar if one is available or a table) and the following tools:
Casting the circle:
With Wand, Athame or Power Hand, cast the circle in a Deosil (Clockwise) direction, starting and ending at the North Quarter. Visualize the protective circle flaming into being around you.
Calling the Quarters
Calling the Gods
"God and Goddess, Lord and Lady, Father and Mother, be welcome here.
Take our right hand and our left and walk with us today(-night)."
Begin with silent meditation, visualize energy being drawn to the Tarot. As you feel the power rising, Reader leads the Querant in a chant:
Dana, Dana bless my hands
You can substitute the appropriate deity for divination in your preferred Pantheon.
When you feel fully prepared for the reading, proceed.

In July 1998, The Cauldron and Phyllis Vega sponsored a contest in association with our Book of the Month Discussion book, Power Tarot by Trish MacGregor and Phyllis Vega. This ritual was the winner of our contest to write a short Pagan-oriented ritual for use before a Tarot reading. We'd like to congratulate Twilight for her winning entry.
