Working Spells with Tarot and Oracle cards

Using tarot cards or oracle cards in your spell gives you a focal point and helps with visualisation.

They can be used as a signifier for a person i.e. the person you are sending healing to (or a curse).

They can also bring the power and energy of the card itself. For instance the lovers card could be used in a love spell to signify the couple but also in a spell for a decision to choose between two different pathways.

You can use your normal tarot set for spell work but I prefer a separate deck that I use just for spells.

Sometimes the card needs to sit in the spell for a day or even a few days and I don’t want to be doing tarot readings with cards missing.
