Series: How To Pull Tarot Cards: Bottom Of Deck Outcome Card

For those of you who are newer to Tarot, I’ve created a few posts to share some simple how-tos on pulling Tarot cards. Today I’m sharing a variation of a single-card pull that uses the card at the bottom of the deck. This is often used as an outcome card, but you can also use it as a next step card. 

Before you begin

The following instructions will appear at the start of each Tarot pull 101 how-to:

I always recommend that you do something to get into a focused, intentional state before slinging your cards. Some people take a few breaths, others set up protective energy circle around them, still others say a prayer, and yet others simply state (out loud or silently) their intention to receive wisdom from a place of highest vibration. Do whatever is right for you.

This is a great pull to do after you’ve done the rest of your reading using a general single-card or three-card spread.

Step 1: Before you do this, make sure you are clear about the purpose of this card. Is it an outcome card? Or perhaps it’s a specific next step card? In this case, I decided the card was a next step card.

Step 2: For this pull, after you have completed your spread or reading, pick up the deck WITHOUT shuffling (you already shuffled it earlier for your reading).

Step 3: Turn the whole deck over so you are looking at the card on the bottom.

As with any card, spend a moment noticing what pops up for you, and then add your thoughts on this card to your journal, pulling out the guidebook as needed. 

FOR EXPERIENCED TAROT FOLKS: Do you ever use the bottom card of the deck as an outcome card, next step card, or for another purpose?
