Hello everyone happy Sunday!!! Its been one of those weeks where I thought that this day would never come. So for my birthday, my lovely mother brought me a gorgeous new tarot deck which you will be getting a post on very soon. But I thought I would share with you the sort of technique to owning a new tarot deck. It's not as simple as everyone really thinks, there is a lot of thought that must go into it. Mainly because they aren't like a deck of cards that you can just open and start using, they will be something that you rely on for all your decisions and your personal growth so there has to be some sort of connection there.
So the very first thing to do after opening your first deck is to cleanse them, now every single person in the world of tarot has their an own particular way of cleansing their cards so you've just got to find yours. The time you know they are properly cleansed you will feel it in your heart. But until then just cleanse them in the traditional way, this is by touching each card and imagining them clean and untouched. You can also if you feel like it spray some oils on them (which is what I do).
After you have done that you are ready to start learning what each card means. Most if not all decks come with a little book explaining what each card means, this needs to go straight into the bin along with the original box. The only way to learn what each card means is to actually sit there and look at each one and think what does the image on the card mean to you. The meaning may actually change over time or even change reading to reading, but that doesn't matter at all. The thing that matters is what you feel it means as that tends to be what the person needs to hear.
