What is tarot deck charging and why does it matter?

Most tarot decks come with a booklet that includes instructions on how to “charge” the tarot cards.

Step 1. What you'll need for charging and cleansing tarot cards

If you want to charge your tarot deck, there are a few things you'll need. First, you'll need a tarot deck. This can be any set of tarot cards, but ideally, it should be one that you feel drawn to, and one that contains both the major arcana and the minor arcana cards.

Once you have your deck, you'll need a source of light. This can be natural sunlight or artificial light, but it should be bright enough to illuminate the tarot card. Your light will help you cleanse your tarot cards as well as charge them. If you don't have a good light source, you can always give your deck a “moon bath” under the full moon.

You may also want to gather a few crystals like clear quartz, black tourmaline, or other stones that can help soak up residual energy. You can also use herbs like dried safe or myrrh as focal elements for cleansing tarot cards.

Finally, you'll need a vessel in which to place the tarot cards. This can be anything from a bowl to a jar to a cup. Once you have all of these materials, you're ready to charge your tarot deck. Simply place the tarot card in the vessel and expose it to the

Step 2. How to cleanse tarot cards 

It is important to cleanse tarot decks before charging them with your own energy. There are a few different ways to do this, but one simple method is to hold the cards in your hands and visualize white light surrounding them.

You can also use sage smoke or incense smoke to purify the cards. Once the tarot cards are cleansed, you can move onto charging. Everyone has their favorite methods for cleansing, and there are many ways to cleanse. So feel free to experiment and find a great method that works just for you.

There's no wrong way to cleanse your tarot deck

The lazy way is to let your cards bathe in the full moon over night. This is great if you have a particular deck that you want to cleanse, but you don't have an express purpose for them. This cleansing method helps clear out negative energies, and the positive energy that it puts back in is generic enough where you can still charge them later on.

Don't skip cleansing methods just because you have a new deck. A new deck may come with intentions from the manufacturer. As a tarot reader, you want to be sure to cleanse your tarot cards. So take a few deep breaths and clear negative energy from them before you try to use the cards.

Step 3. How to charge the cards 

It is important to charge tarot cards with your own energy before using them for a reading. This will ensure that the tarot cards are attuned to your own personal vibrations and will provide accurate readings. There are several different ways to charge tarot cards. One way is to simply hold the tarot cards in your hands and focus your energy into them.

You can also place the tarot cards on your altar or meditation space, or surround them with candles or crystals. Another option is to sleep with the tarot cards under your pillow. Take some time to experiment and find the method that works best for you. With a little practice, you will be able to charge tarot cards quickly and easily.

Charging your tarot deck with crystals 

Charging your tarot card deck with crystals is a great way to cleanse and energize your cards. There are a few different ways you can do this, but the most important thing is to choose crystals that resonate with you.

Some good options for tarot cards include amethyst, quartz, and citrine. Simply hold the crystal in your hand and visualize it sending its energy into the tarot deck. You can also place the crystal on top of the deck for a few minutes or even overnight. When you're finished, be sure to thank the crystal for its help.

Charging your tarot deck with the moon

It is important to cleanse and charge your tarot deck regularly to keep it working properly. There are many ways to do this, but charging it with the full moon is a simple and effective method. First, set your tarot deck in the light of the full moon for a few hours.

Then, hold the deck in your hands and focus your energy on infusing it with positive vibes. You can also say a prayer or mantra to further charge the deck. Afterward, store the tarot deck in a safe place until you are ready to use it again. By taking these simple steps, you can keep your tarot deck working properly for years to come.

Step 4. Tips for using charged tarot cards 

If you've ever seen a tarot card reading done in a movie or TV show, you may have noticed that the reader often sets their deck of cards down on top of an object. This object can be anything from a crystal ball to a book, but the most common object used is something that is charged with protection. You want to make sure to keep your tarot cards clean, so use something like quartz or a smudge stick to hold your tarot cards while you're working with them.

Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference. Learning tarot and reading tarot is a breath of fresh air in this world of technology, so embrace this powerful tool.
