Taking Care of Tarot Cards

My first Tarot deck is celebrating a birthday:  27 years ago this month I got them and spent a happy summer learning all about this wonderful art.

This deck — a Rider-Waite, for those who are interested — has been through a lot –A LOOOOOTTTTT — of readings since then.  I’ve picked up other decks along the way, but I always come back to Old Faithful.  Here are some things I’ve learned about setting up your deck to get the best experience possible out of them.

Happy birthday, old girl.

  1. I must be obsessive-compulsive, I always like to put the cards way in order! LOL Maybe I need to loosen up a bit. Why do you recommend specifically to NOT put them away in order?

  2. I also never let anyone else touch my cards, I only want my energy on them:)

  3. Yeah, there are a few schools of thought on that. I let people cut the deck after I shuffle them, but some readers hate anyone touching their cards! So personal.
