Hi This has been discussed in depth in the private area but Im sure some tarot users here will come forward with some advice.

 

Although I read Tarot, I don't cleanse them because nobody else touches them and I keep them wrapped in silk scarfs.

 

I am into Lenormand cards at the moment so that is my main focus right now, my Tarot is on the back burner for now. Im sure other tarot readers will be happy to share some general information with you here though :)

hi,

 

I own 10 packs of tarot and oracle cards

 

Rider Waite Smith

The Fey Tarot

Tarot of the Secret Forest

Tarot of the Magical Forest

The Fairytale Tarot

Baroque Bohemian Cats Tarot

Victorian Romantic Tarot

Victorian Flower Oracle

The Fairy Ring Oracle

The Faeries Oracle

 

I'm currently looking to get a Tarot De Marseilles and a Bohemian Gothic. I'm a bit of a collector (I love the different artwork and interpretations) but mainly use them for divination purposes. Nothing fancy, mostly 3 card spreads- I like to keep it simple! I love them all, I think my faves are the Secret Forest, the Fey, and the Faeries Oracle.

 

I don't cleanse them but then I do keep them under lock and key!

Yes this has been discussed in depth previously (do a search and I"M sure you might find it).

 

I use three decks...animal spirits deck...Egyptian Deck and Wolf Deck all at once.

I use a deck that my husband picked out for me. Now being that he is thrifty he bought me The Tarot Discovery Kit. It has a pretty deck, an interactive CD, a satin bag, and a guidebook. At first I wasn't sure if I would like it but, now I couldn't imagine a better deck for me.

 

I think you will find, that it is all about the deck that you connect with the most. I agree with Sandy, as long as you keep others from touching your deck, you shouldn't have to cleanse it. There are websites that you can look at, just Google Tarot. In the end you'll find that it is all up to you. Mostly have fun and do it your way.

I've gone through a few decks, but I'm one of those people that once I genuinely connect to something (or someone, whatever) I won't let go unless there's no other choice.

 

My current deck is the Revelations deck and I'm in love with it! A friend recommended the Gilded deck though when I went to the bookstore to check it out, the Revelations fell off the shelf (I'm a klutz) and it drew me in immediately.

 

It's a reverse deck all in stained glass type art work with all of the characters depicted wearing masks. There's so much symbolism in them but not so convoluted that you can't see the message. The book that accompanied it is pretty damn cool too. The creator of the deck rendered the symbols, art, etc, all of it himself. He seems pretty passionate about it. At any rate, my deck reflects me in my mentality and behaviors. There are many faces I wear and many costumes I'll don, and while they are all *part* of me, none of them *are* me. See?

 

I only do readings for close friends, and in those special cases I'll insist they shuffle, draw and lay out the cards since they're the querant, not me. After that, I'll cleanse them with a chunk of raw amethyst I have and dragon's blood inscense, let them sit in the sun or moonlight for a period...until I feel that they are 'mine' again. I'm kinduva screwball witch though. ;)

Hi Rainbow. I use the Aleister Crowley Thoth tarot. Initially I charged in by the full moon, then the dark moon, four in a row for balance. Its settled its energy now and I find it works for me. Querrents do shuffle and pick but then I quickly ground the Daarth cards in silk and incense while I read the spread. After that the spread cards are grounded in different silk, same incense and the deck reunited. I read more for myself than others so its not a great issue. Hope that helps!

You sound lot like me twisted angel x

Way you cleanse , charge them !!!!!!!!!! I also use breath, blow huge puff on them[ after meditating charged with energy] or visualise energy going through them around them etc. Its wonderful you can actually[ well i have] feel see the energy during and afters. Infact only today mid afternoon was laying down on bed for 10 mins time out relaxing, not to go to sleep and my cards on top of a special box i own were vibrating buzzing away [ didnt hear the buzzing, lol] watched for good few minutes in awe. Nice to meet you anyways, and thanks to every one elses replies x

Hi Rainbow. The tarot deck that I use is called The Witches Tarot and I bought it about 6 years ago. Yes, I am very attached to the deck, lol. I use different spreads and I don't cleanse the deck because I am the only person that touches the cards.

Greetings Sandy, All

 

I am into Lenormand cards at the moment so that is my main focus right now,

 

Cool - aren't they lovely? I had a set and they went AWOL so I got another a couple of years back. I must say that I have a real soft spot for them and the layout ...

 

I have recently seen a deck which, from what I could fathom at a passing glance was along the same lives but playing card style with a wee blurb in the middle ... when I get a sec I reckon I will have to suss them out too ...

 

Fraternally

I have two types, one with just picture and blurb and one with other bits on including the playing card .. I like them the most because it gives you pointers as well as the playing card it represents so when I get the hang of them I could do it with normal playing cards too.

 

These just sit right with me. I got mine in France as finding them in English is really rare. They are a big hit in Germany, which is where I found out about them but needed the English blurb :)

 

pics attached :)

You'll love the Secret Forest Terri! Dark earthy tones- you can practically smell the damp decaying leaves on the forest floor!

 

Some don't like it due to the insect imagery and unusual 2 sided design, but I think its amazing. Kind of unusual and doesn't quite follow the usual RWS imagery but if you are intuitive that won't matter!

I've got the St. Petersburg Russian Tarot. . .mainly because I have a mass affinity for all things Russian (past life maybe?) The imagery is very detailed, and overall beautiful.

 

Sadly, I just don't use them. I only read when I feel the call to do so, and it's usually 10 minutes or more before they stop bitching long enough for me to be able to actually read. lol

 

Toodles!

I have a tarot deck... it's nothing special... & I'm honestly not sure where I put them. I just thought they'd be neat... & they were in a beginners pack.

 

I've only done a couple of readings with them, just playing around. A friend of mine was really bothered by my reading & said everything made so much sense afterward. I think it scared him but he wouldn't tell me... I should fish them back out.

I know this thread is somewhat old. Or is it? I don't know and I'm not a very internet savvy witch.

 

Anyhow, I use the Sacred Circle Tarot. Not because I necessarily like the pictures (and the cards are too big and clunky) but because it's the only deck that gives me spot on answers. I've tried to use other more appealing decks like the original Rider Waite (for some reason I like the classical look of decks styled after medieval period--even though the Waite is modern) but for some reason they never worked for me. So the Sacred Circle so far I think picked me, or something, and works for me without fail. I have no problem with letting others--at least others that I know and like--touch my cards and I don't really feel the need to cleanse them. Although like most new tools I breathe or blow on them to kind of enliven them and I usually give them a name so that I can work with them more effectively and they respond to me better. Then I just keep them in a black velvet bag:)

I have two decks, "tarot of the old path" and the "Morgan Greer" tarot deck. I love them both. I was given the former and found the latter myself. My hubby loves collecting the decks and has one called "Servants of the Light" tarot. We both love oracle systems. I also like the Ogham (have a card deck called the "Celtic Tree Oracle") and I have an animal deck "the Druid Animal Oracle."

 

Though I'm told I'm accurate with the cards, I have a hard time with interpretation and feel my skills aren't adequate with them. I'm more of a tea leaves, palmistry kind of person. I am also thinking up a personal divination system, i.e., my own symbols, my own interpretations. I go by intuition with the cards and sometimes my meanings contradict what the book says the card means - it can get a little confusing! Whatever...:) I love my decks and for me to buy one I must be drawn to it!

I use the Celtic Dragon Tarot. I was actually looking for the shapeshifter tarot and found the CDT at the same time and thought I would try both and the CDT worked out the best for me.

 

I like it for several reasons. Firstly the art work is in a style that I like, and the pictures allow me to bring forth meanings. Secondly it has lots of dragons in it, which I have always liked. Never really found another dragon tarot deck that had dragons in the right style. Third, it has the elemental association that I work with. I have trouble if fire is not associated with swords. Its just one of my things.

 

I keep my deck rapped in a green silk sheet my sister gave me, then put it in a purple tarot sack, or what ever they are called. I don't think I ever clense my cards any more. I feel that its better if they pick up the energy of the readings they do, like the more they have built up inside, the better they will be. Though if I am doing 2 or more readings after each other then I will tap the deck on something natural to "knock" the last reading out of it. I also try to carry my deck around with me as much as possible, so that the bond between us is always strong, and they are always there if they are needed.

 

My reading have become quite good now, just happened after using the deck for a while, and I can do reading in person, over the phone and even over e-mail, though I don't like without direct communication.

I own a few decks of tarot and a few oracle decks. I use them both for myself, and for others in readings. The tarot cards are used specifically for readings (bar one), the oracle decks for meditation, journeywork and spellwork. The only exception is my main tarot deck which is put to all purposes because I have a unique affinity with it; that deck is the Greenwood Tarot.

 

I don't do any cleansing or charging. If a deck feels right, I use it. If it doesn't feel right, I pass it on.

I have druidcraft and robin wood that I use and vampire and cat people but they aren't so good. I usually cleanse with smoke and charge but nothing mental and complicated.
