The first rule is to become familiar with your cards. Get to know the pictures, shuffle them a lot, carry them about with you, even sleep with them by your bed so that they absorb your personal energies and become uniquely yours. I recommend keeping the cards wrapped in black silk or in a wooden box. The important thing to remember that the cards are yours alone and should be special to you. You should not allow anyone to play with these cards or even pick them up without your permission. Most certainly should not use anyone else to read them.
