This board has all kinds of tips and tricks to help you become a better tarot reader.
Tarot and oracle decks get muddy with energy. Just using (or even lack of using) your decks can create stickiness or sluggishness in the cards. The energy may get thick, dense or even negative. It’s difficult to have a clear and accurate reading when our cards are not at their best.
Another sure sign that the deck needs clearing is that you feel like your energy is draining. Sometimes, the cards can pull energy from you, and you can pick up the cards' negative energy. It's kind of like walking into a room where the energy is off, and you are wondering what happened right before you arrived. There is energy all around us, both positive and negative. Some of it can be sensed quickly and easily, while some of it cannot. #learntarot #tarotdaily #tarotforbeginners
Sometimes, dense, thick, and muddy energies have accumulated in the deck. And maybe you don't vibe with the deck, not because there's something inherently wrong with the deck but rather that it just needs clearing. Sometimes, the simplest of clearing can bring the connection back to your deck, and sometimes a deeper cleaning/clearing is necessary. #tarotcards #tarottips #tarotcommunity
It's always a good idea to clear the cards before each reading. It's like starting your story on a blank sheet of paper, rather than trying to fit the words in, in between what's already been written. Short on time, no worries! A simple 2 or 3 knocks on the deck before a shuffle is an effective way to clear cards, especially ones that are not too dense with other energies. #tarottips #tarotcommunity #tarotcards
If they stay together in clumps when shuffling and the cards don't move freely, it's time for a clearing! When this happens with a deck, my favorite method of clearing is to handle each card one by one. Sometimes cards need to be seen or listened to as you go through them. #tarottips #tarotcommunity #tarotcards
Inevitably, the negative energy of the querent will mix with the cards during a reading, to one degree or another. It's a good habit and practice to clear the cards between readings, especially when reading for others, but it is essential when you're reading for someone that has negative energy or is being negative. Just like getting a new plate to eat off before every meal, we want our cards to be clean before every reading. #tarotcommunity #tarotcards #tarottips
A sound deck clearing and possibly a deck interview spread is called for when you don't feel connected with the deck, the reading, or sometimes even the querent. At times, readings are spot on, and the information seems to be flowing from and through the deck. In this instance, the reading is a breeze while other times it's not. Why is that? It can be for various reasons, but a deck clearing is required as a first step. #tarotcards #tarottips #tarotcommunity
Just like when we haven't moved in a while, it's hard to get going again. One way of getting the tarot cards going again is to give them a little loving attention. You can do this by staring with a good clearing. We will want to realign ourselves with the cards and possibly do another deck interview, depending on how long it's been since we've used the cards. It's like getting reacquainted with an old friend. #tarotcards #tarottips #tarotcommunity
It's good to listen to that inner voice or how you feel about whether or not to do a clearing. Follow it and clear your deck. And the same follows with what type of clearing to do. It's totally up to you. There are no rules for when and how to clear your deck; there are only recommendations from the community of tarot readers who have come before us and those who specifically work with energies and divination tools. Remember, it's up to you. #tarottips #tarotcards #tarotcommunity
If your tarot cards fall, either out of your hands or off something onto the floor, consider that the tarot cards are crying out to be cleared. And usually, a more thorough clearing is recommended, such as putting them all in order and then beginning a shuffle from there. #tarotcommunity #tarotcards #tarottips
