Do you read reverses in Tarot? I'd always thought that was part of the whole process but some witches I've met recently said they don't bother, so I was wondering how common that is. I've been just reading their upright meanings now for a while and whether it's because of that, because I've got a deck that suits me better or because I'm better at reading cards I can't tell but I'm having a much better time with it than I did before. I had some weird experiences with Tarot a while ago that put me off which is why I stuck to oracle cards for so long, but I'm glad I took them up again, there's a decent level of accuracy with them and I'm quite happy with the results at the moment
I used too. Then again it depends on the spread I am doing. Like what Incognitus says, reversals offer a wider scope of detail to the readings in General. I include reversals when I do a celtic cross or any spread that includes multiple cards. For shorter spreads I read them all right side up.
I almost always use reversed cards. To me it's always felt like this gave a little more granularity (more detail) to the reading. If I'm doing a quick, general reading, sometimes I skip doing reverses.
I do it but I have always met other readers that dont. It puzzles me. I have tried to do the readings ignoring the reversed and my readings come out wrong and I feel wrong. I dont like reversed cards but I like less not interpreting their reversed meanings. My sister does not read reversed, she reads them as their normal up-meaning.
