What Do You Do When You Get A New Tarot Deck
Whenever you get a new tarot deck, there are a few things you need to ensure doing before giving the cards a first go.
Before you decide to open your new deck of cards, think of what way you will be storing them. As some cards tend to be more sensitive, it is best advised to keep them stored up inside a nice velvet tarot bag. That way, you will be sure your cards will stay in the best condition and will be providing you with meaningful insights for years to come.
Besides making sure your cards are physically protected, it’s also important to make sure your new tarot deck has been cleansed of any negative energies before use.
Cleansing your tarot deck can be done in a few different ways. You can either choose to cleanse your deck with some sage or Palo Santo (Holy Wood), or you can use healing crystals to do the job for you.
If you don’t own any crystals, sage or Palo Santo, meditating with your deck can also be very effective when your goal is to clear your deck of any negative energies surrounding it and making sure the energy is neutral. When meditating with your deck, focus on sending positive thoughts and affirmations towards the cards.
When you’ve made sure your new tarot deck is both physically and spiritually protected, you can dive into your first reading. Before starting out on your reading, a good way to get more familiar with the deck is by reading the guidebook that often comes along with the deck.
Guidebooks offer a great amount of information with specific regards towards the deck of your choice. You’ll be able to find out the specific meaning and interpretations of each card, as well as some useful spreads which you are free to use.
