I went to draw my weekly cards of the day, and realized that two of my favorite decks could use a good cleaning. I’ll write a long post one of these days about how, when, and why to cleanse your tarot cards. As with everything else, there’s no rote way of doing it. Everyone’s different. Not all tarot readers even bother with deck cleansing. Read up, play around, and settle on whatever works for you!
For my Wild Unknown and Morgan Greer decks today, I turned each card back upright, put them in order, and set them to clear out with candles and gems (amethyst, rose quartz, and citrine.)
I use my Morgan Greer deck all the time and it’s recently been traveling with me. My Wild Unknown, on the other hand, has been sitting neglected a bit too long. When I came back from the road, it started giving me all reversed cards, no matter what the reading topic was. This should give them a re-set.
