"How do you draw the Card of the Day? Is it just for me or for everyone out there? How does it work?"
I draw the Card of the Day on my private deck. I shuffle for a while and then when I feel the time is right cut the cards and reveal what will be the COTD. In fact the COTD is responsible for about 50% of the Tarot commentary on the site, because we needed content and I could never settle down to write 78 commentaries straight off. So we decided that the best way to do things was for me to cut a card randomly each day and write a commentary on it. This first of all formed the interpretative section of the site and later the more inward looking and self-initatory Working With section.
When we first started doing this and publicising it on the site we received a great deal of feedback from people telling us that with some weird synchronicity either the interpretation of the COTD or the Working With section rang a couple of million bells for people.
We frequently get feedback from people telling us how apt a particular draw is. Whether the COTD is always apt for everybody I don't know. Perhaps you'd like to let us know.
In retrospect and considering the kind of feedback we get I guess I think that the COTD is one of those signposts with which life is littered. Every now and again I hope it turns a light on in a dark corner of somebody's life and helps them to see their path clear.
