I cleanse my deck in a couple of ways.
Method one: I set it out to cleanse and charge in the light of the full moon.
Method two: If it’s no where near the full moon I cleanse my deck with the smoke from a combination of dragon’s blood and sweetgrass, sweetgrass and sage or sage and dragon’s blood depending on my mood, the energies I want to get rid of or what I have available.
Most times I’ll just pass my entire deck through the smoke and let it roll over it, but sometimes I cleanse each card.
Method three: I use this when my deck needs a really good cleansing. Generally when I’ve used it a lot and it’s not a full moon. Sometimes I even do it if it’s the night of a full moon.
I will separate all the cards according to major or minor arcana then put all of them in order. I generally start with the different suits and then put the major arcana in order last. Next I’ll put the deck in order from there. So major arcana then wands, cups, swords and pentacles. After that I add in a bit of method two and cleanse the deck with smoke.
Blessings and love. ♥
Witchcraft on a Budget - Making your own Tarot Cards
Making your own Tarot Cards
Did you know you can make your own Tarot card deck? It’s not that expensive and can be personal just to you.
Tools you will need:
- A printer*
- Self laminating pages (Can be found at Wal-mart)
(*If you have art skills, you can draw your cards instead!)
The first thing you’ll want to do, is find a type of Tarot deck you like. Some have free ones (such as ones they’ve drawn themselves) others have scanned cards. Find a full deck that is free to use, and save it to your computer.
Once you have each card, you’ll want to pick the right size, and print out each card. You can go in full color, or black and white, it’s up to you.
Once each card is printed to the size you see fit, it’s time to cut them out! Take your scissors, and carefully cut each card out, then place it into a pile until each is done.
Once you’re all done, you can choose to add a ‘backing’ to the cards, if you want to get fancy. You’ll have to print out a ‘back’ to each card if you choose.
Once you’re down with each card, it’s time to Laminate! Put each card between the sheet (you should be able to fit at LEAST 7-10 cards, if not more.) and CAREFULLY place down the laminate page. Once it’s sealed and sat for a bit, it’s time to cut!
Cut out each card carefully. Make sure to leave a tiny bit a room between each card, so as not to break the seal.
Once you’ve made all your cards, and they are all cut out, feel free to shuffle them, and place some upside down.
TA-DA! You’ve now made your own tarot deck!
