Tarot cards are cards that are used to mak predictions for yoursef and for others and should be used sparingly. When you first get a deck of cards, it is important that you place your energies on them and to not let others play with your deck, due to the fact that the cards need your energy on them. It is suggested by many, that before you do any readings in order for your cards to get familiar with your energy, you sleep with the deck underneath your pillow. It is important to take care of your tarot cards and to treat them respectfully. It is best to keep your desk in a dark cloth case, or in a special box when they are not being used, after the first few days after obtaining them.
