Question: How do you cleanse your tarot cards?
Answer: As I’ve previously discussed, I would highly recommend not cleansing a tarot deck that is used strictly for your personal readings because the cards will be imbued with your energy and mold to you and your circumstances.
But there are times when you will need to cleanse your tarot deck and there are a few methods I prefer:
- using coarse sea salt
- using a quartz crystal
- burning sage (also known as smudging)
There are a number of other ways to cleanse a tarot deck to include sprinkling with pure water, leaving your deck under a sunny area (in a sacred and trusted place of course), leaving your deck in the moonlight (again, in a sacred and trusted place), or simply saying a prayer over them.
The reason I choose to use salt, quartz, and smudging is because of the results I obtain from it.
Test the different methods of cleansing your tarot deck to find the one that suits you best really listen to the cards once they have been cleansed. If any negative energy remains, they will tell you and it means you need to cleanse them again or find another method.
I receive a number of tarot related questions, so I have decided to dedicate a section of Daily Tarot to answer them. If you have a tarot related question, please do not hesitate to ask.
