Cleansing and Storing those Tarot Decks


Tarot Card Storing
 { Storage and care of cards is entirely personal. It is a combination of personal beliefs and practical considerations.
Try different methods and see which works best for you }.
your relationship with your cards is a very personal one and that you should determine what works best for you.
Tarots cards come in many, many shapes, forms and types. Just as there are types of cards, there are also as many storage boxes, bags and ways in which to store and care for them.
Some say that you must store them in an oak box or wrap them in silk.  Others, however, store their cards in the box or pouch in which it was purchased, adding only gems, crystals and/or herbs into the box or pouch to impart qualities they seek as a reader.

The best storage is what works for you.

Tarot Card Cleansing

One of the simplest and easiest methods of cleansing your deck, is to put your cards back in order. If you have had, in the shuffling, the cards turn upside down, I would straightened them so that they all aligned in the same direction.

Another method of cleansing is to pass the cards through the smoke of burning sage. This is especially effective.
Passing your cards through incense smoke as a way of cleansing may work for you.

You can also cleanse your cards by storing them with a stone or crystal that has cleansing properties such as a quartz point.
If you want your cards to have intuitive readings, you could store it with amethyst because it is said to open your spiritual or psychic powers.

Another method of cleansing after buying a new deck  before you use it for the first time; is to let the cards sit in the light of the full moon. Place your cards on a window ledge that catches the moonlight and allow it to infuse the cards with its glow all night long.

I chose to store my Paulina Cassidy deck with a piece of gifted to me.. Citrine Point Crystal. Natural Citrine has healing properties and does not hold or accumulate negative energy. Citrine transmutes, dissipates and grounds negative energy, making it extremely protective for the environment. It is one of only two crystals on Earth that never needs to be cleared or cleansed. The other is Kyanite.

Placing a new tarot deck under your pillow for a week will help you connect to your deck.
