Cleansing and Attuning a Tarot Deck

Postby Nixie-Tartarus » Mon Jan 06, 2014 8:50 pm

Was hoping to get some ideas on how to cleanse and attune my new tarot deck (Deviant Moon).
Any suggestions or advice would be very much appreciated!

You /can/ perform an elaborate ritual, but I personally prefer the simplicity of bathing them in the light of the Full moon and asking the divine to bless the deck with insight and Guidance. (:
Afterward, you can just keep a Crystal (I use quartz) nearby the deck to stave away collected energy. Cleanse the Crystal with blessed water periodically and you should be Good!

As for attuning, the best advice I can give you is to just HANDLE it and get to know it personally. Here's a new deck spread you can do:

****** 5 ****** 6 ******
********** 4 **********
****** 3 ****** 2 ******
********** 1 **********

1. Tell me about yourself. What is your most important characteristic?
2. What are your strengths as a deck?
3. What are your limits as a deck?
4. What do you bring to the table -- what are you here to teach me?
5. How can I best learn from and collaborate with you?
6. What is the potential outcome of our working relationship?
(Spread courtesy of FireRaven of TarotForum.net... which BTW, is a fantastic place to go if you desire an active community of fellow tarotists.)

An easy way of cleansing your cards if by holding them in your left hand which is the open to receiving hand. Hold the pack in that hand and tap three times with the right clearing away any negativity in those three taps. Fan the cards over your heart and state your intention then thumb the corner of edge of each card and fill the cards with love from your heart So that they know they're working with the love and light energies or higher energies of positive intention.

sleep with the deck under yyour pillow for 3 nights and fill it with the energy of all the 4 elements, the sun and the moon. meaning for fire get it oer a lit candle, for air let it be filled with incence smoke, for earth bury it for 3 days, for water bath it in a river, for sun leave it under the sun for 3 days, and for moon leae it under the moon for 3 days.

I would say constantly work with the deck. The more you work with it, the more you get attuned to it. If this is your first deck, I suggest working solely with the Major Arcana for a few months before including the Minor Arcana.

I use a natural clear quartz point to cleanse my deck. I suspend it as a pendulum on top of the deck with the point downwards and leave it there for a few hours. I also burn herbs (Rosemary is my favorite but Sage is more commonly used) and cleanse the i over them.

Oh this is an interesting approach! I will try it next time my deck needs cleansing :)

Since your deck has a lot of lunar influences, try having items that correspond with the moon with you when you work with the deck. Try working by the light of white or silver candles, lighting jasmine incense before a reading, or perhaps having moonstones on the table where you lay out your cards.
