Caring for your cards
CHOOSING YOUR FIRST DECK
I believe that tarot will find a way to you if you are meant to have these cards in your life. However, this doesn’t mean that you have to be gifted your first deck, as some people say.
These days there are so many beautiful decks available that I think it is more important to go with whatever one you feel drawn to. When you choose your own deck, you are making an energetic connection and this will enhance any work you do with the cards.
STORAGE AND TRANSPORTATION
The easiest thing is to store your cards in their original boxes, then you can see at a glance what is in your collection and pop them into a bag or wrap them in a cloth for transportation, which personalises them. I wrap mine in material, sometimes tarot bags, but if you don’t have a bag, a soft cloth will suffice. I’ve even used a tea-towel, which offers adequate protection when bumping around in the bottom of my handbag!
