Everything is energy, and sometimes energy can get a bit muddled. When this happens to your tarot or oracle cards, you may find it hard to know when to stop shuffling or your readings may be off. You might feel as if your cards have developed an attitude problem and don’t want to cooperate with you.
Fortunately, there are many things you can do to clear the energy of your cards so that you and them can sync back into a harmonious relationship.
First – The Cleansing Shuffle.
Shuffle with the mere intention of clearing the energy of your tarot cards. Shuffle them over and over again, until your intuition tells you that your cards are clear. You can even envision light flowing into the tarot cards while negative energy flows away from them if you like.
Second – Right Side Up.
Simply place all of the cards right sized up so that there aren’t any upside down cards in the deck. Once all of the tarot cards are right side up, let the cards rest for a few hours. Our cards work with a lot of energy and they need moments of rest and recuperation too.
Third – Sage.
Sage your cards. This is not a method that I use because I am sensitive to smells, and Sage releases a very strong odor. However, there is no denying that many practicing magic-workers swear by the stuff, and if it can clear negative energies in a home or stone, then it serves to reason that they can clear the energy of your tarot cards as well.
Before you light your sage stick, you may want to have a bowl of water ready so that you can place it under the burning sage. This prevents embers from landing and burning your carpet or floor.
Light the sage and hold it in one hand. With the other hand, hold your deck of tarot cards and place it above the sage so that the smoke rises up to it. You can rotate the deck if you wish, but do not circle the sage around your cards. This can cause embers to fall and burn your cards.
Fourth – Reiki or Light Energy
If you are a Reiki practitioner or work with another healing modality, you can use your healing energy to send light to the cards. Here, I am using Reiki.
I like to keep my hands hovered above the cards. You can keep the deck together and place your hands over the deck or, you can spread them out like so. Using your hand, you can draw symbols over the tarot cards if you wish too. Reiki aligns the energy of our bodies, and it can re-align the energy of the cards too.
Although I like to hover my hands above the cards, you can touch the cards if that feels more natural to you. You can place your hands on top of the deck or, you can place them in between your hands like a sandwich and hold them in a comfortable position as you send healing energy to the cards.

Fifth – Pendulums
Take the pendulum of your choice and hold it above the deck. Allow the pendulum to circle and dance above the cards. This allows the pendulum to clear away any negative energy and either send it away, absorb it or transmute it into light. Continue to hold the pendulum over your deck of tarot cards until the pendulum stops spinning.
Once it has stopped moving, your cards are clear, but you may want to let them rest for a few hours before using them. For more information on pendulums, check out my book “Decoding the Pendulum: Become a Psychic in Seconds” available on Amazon.
Sixth – Sunlight
This method is perfect for those moments when it feels as if your readings are mostly negative. True, this could have something to do with the people you are reading for, but it can also be because of the negative energy trapped or held inside of your cards.
Place a clear quartz on your deck and place it in an area where it will receive plenty of sunlight. The clear quartz magnifies the positive energy of the sun and allows your tarot cards to absorb it. This will help the cards to be more gentle, kind and positive in delivering their messages.
Seventh – Moonlight
If your readings have been off or inaccurate, than try this method. Place a clear quartz on top of your deck, and place it in an area where it will receive the light of the moon. A full moon is best, but you can do this during any stage of the moon. The moon is closely associated with magic, mysteries and intuition. Placing the clear quartz on your tarot or oracle deck will allow it to soak up the energy of the moon and will help your cards to be more accurate during your readings.
