Proper Care Of Tarot Cards

By Caroline :: :: 2 comments

How do you store your Tarot cards? Some people teach that you must absolutely keep them wrapped in silk. This is lovely when possible but the truth is there really is no one right or wrong way to store your cards.

The skill, the magic, and the wisdom all comes from you, not how you wrapped up your cards. The cards are beautiful objects but ultimately just a tool to get your intuition flowing, so feel free to store them in the way that feels right for you.

You may want to wrap your cards in silk but it’s also be fine to keep them stored in their original box. Many collectors store their cards this way. You may also wish to keep your cards out on your desk if you are using them daily, like leaving a book open.

You just want to make sure you are taking good care of your cards. All well loved cards show wear and tear eventually, but try not to leave your cards lying around just anywhere in case they are lost or damaged. Avoid tying your cards with a rubber band.

If you are looking for a beautiful bag or box to store your cards, there are some beautiful handmade options on Etsy, like the one in this picture below. Have fun!

Love and magic, Caroline Anna x

    I’ve followed Lotus Tarot for years and love the interesting comments you make about the cards. I have three sets of cards: the Morgan Greer deck, the Karma deck, and my favourite deck, the Rider Waite. All are kept wrapped in a blue silk cloth which is covered with the 4 tarot suit symbols. I keep them stored safely up high on my bookshelf. Just like you rightly say though how to care for the cards is entirely down to each individual person. Blessed Be. Ikkyo
