Tarot Cards' Box Ripped, What Do I Do About It?

Postby hawkflower » Tue Jun 20, 2017 5:56 pm

I went to a local pagan shop in Ashland, Oregon where I am visiting and I had no intention of buying cards. I was having a hard time deciding which things to buy, since I didn't want to buy many items since I am not as active with them and it could be a waste of money.

I was roaming around the store and I found the tarot section. As I looked at the packs one really caught my attention the "Tarot Art Nouveau" by Antonella Castelli. I was blown away by the art and felt a connection with the cards. I placed my other items back and bought it.

I went, and currently am at lunch with my mother. I decided that I wanted to show her the art as I was very very excited about it. I have never felt such a connection with any deck before. So I tried to remove the actual card deck from inside the box and it would not come out. I tried to shake it, pull it lightly and as I tried the top of the card box ripped. It is not a huge tare but it is noticeable.

I am worried, do the cards not like me? Is it just the packaging and I am overreacting? Also what do I do about the tear? Do I put tape over it, or do a certain chant, or just leave it?

You might be hyper due to the emotional connection you feel to the artwork of the deck. A rip is easily fixed, but it does give some breathing space. Cards are always tight in a new deck, partly static cling. I've never had a box that didn't look beat up while the deck remained pristine.

If the tear is just on the box of the cards don't worry too much about it.

To be honest, I no longer even notice the boxes since I starting using styled Tarot bags.

If it helps, find a tarot bag (you can find a large selection on amazon) that resonates with your cards.

That way rather than looking at the box, you'll just be looking at the new tarot bag they sit in
