To start reading Zigeuner Cards, the inquirer should shuffle the cards and cut it 3 times. Some Gypsy card reader will shuffle the cards themselves up to seven times or until the reader feels the time is right, and ask the inquirer to cut it.
Deal the cards and chose a card which will represent the inquirer. For the female inquirer you can use the Sweetheart card and for the male inquirer the Lover card. But for a specific question, you can pick a card which will represent the inquirer's question. The inquirer card will give the meaning to the cards around it. The card to the left as the past, whilst the cards to the right the future. The card close will have one meaning, whilst the card far away another. However, if you do a spread in 3 rows, the past will be the last three card, the present in the middle and the future is the first row of card.
You will have to pay attention to the combination of the card, eg. Positive card around a negative card will mean that the problem will not be as bad; a Love card next to Death will indicate a new relationship.

Each card is explained in four position, depends how close to a good or a bad card and how close or far to the significator card.

- First position being when the card is far from the inquirer's card and it is positive. In this position for example the Messenger card will mean you will receive good news.
- Second position is medium, when the positive card is far from the inquirer but a negative card is next to it. For instance, when the Messenger card is next to the Misfortune card, it will foretell unexpected happy news.
- Third position is when the positive card is far from the inquirer but it is close to negative cards (for instance 2 negative cards) with a positive card. For instance if the Messenger card close to the card of Anger and Misfortuone, it will change the meaning from good news to news which will bring unpleasantness.
- And finally the Fourth position, when the card is close to the inquirer's card. For example, the Messenger card next to the inquirer will transform the meaning into unpleasant news instead of good news. However, you have to keep in mind that even bad news is worthwhile to receive as it might let you know that a relative who suffered from a terminal illness finally passed away and his/her long time suffering is over.
Did you know?

There are many theories, yet none of them trace it back to the most obvious source, Sanskrit language. Sanskrit is the base of every language today, specially European languages, that is why it is called Indo-European. However, Sanskrit has nothing to do with Indo- as it is Phoenician in origin, who were the original inhabitant of the Mediterranean, mostly Ancient Greece and Crete. Tarot is a Sanskrit word (the native language of the Phoenicians and the Romani people), derived from Sanskrit taras; i.e. voyage, here it is referring to life as a voyage, and how to continue on your journey in life. The other word is Tara, which is translating to asterism, passage, knowledge, communication between man and the universe, the Veda (means Truth, Science), the sacred text and science of the ancient Phoenicians and they were/are hidden away from the world as Romani people or Gypsies. This ancient knowledge was embedded into Tarot and Gypsy cards. Although most of their knowledge is lost, some is hidden, only fragments left for us to learn from.
