According to Richmond, in order to do a reading
for a client he would arrange the cards according to the Natural
Order book (see The Solar Book).
Then, the client would shuffle the deck any number of times
for exactly 1 minute.
After that, the client would cut the cards 3 times within
another 1-minute period. Then Richmond would quadrate
the cards and lay them out in the prescribed manner.
I have performed these card layouts and have found them to
be very useful. Over time I developed software to simulate
the process described here and have tested those results.
There is no way to measure the accuracy of such a tool except
through personal experimentation, and for myself those results
have proven to be useful.
Please Note! Richmond was clear in stating that a person
should perform only one such reading per day. Mental
force is diminished in the process of performing this shuffle
such that performing it again would inevitably limit the results.
In line with this, the reader should take care and apply the
necessary mental force in using this tool in order to obtain
a useful reading.
This Tool simulates the shuffling and cutting of the deck based on a
statistical model developed through manually performing these tasks and analyzing the results. There are a number of factors
that have been embedded in the logic of the code that make this simulation useful for doing a personal reading.
