How does this work?
This is a computer program. Currently there is no human interaction, but as I play with it, I will add the ability for you interact with the program. So how does this thing work?
First, this Three Card Spread uses only the Major Arcana. I use a particularly strong random number generator to accomplish many of the tasks. My little toy program shuffles the deck, deciding which cards are upright and which are reversed. It then picks an arbitrary randomly generated range someplace in the shuffled deck, and within that range picks a random place to cut the deck. Once this is done, three cards are randomly picked.
In the future, I will add the ability of the user to decide where to cut the deck and which cards to pick. I will also add better interpretations as well as different, more interesting card spreads. However, remember that an accurate Tarot reading should be done by a skilled human card reader. This is just a toy!
