Can I sleep with my tarot cards?

While you technically can sleep with your tarot cards, it is not a common or recommended practice. Tarot cards are tools for divination and personal insight, and they should be treated with respect and care.

Sleeping with your tarot cards may risk damaging them, especially if you move around during sleep or apply pressure to the cards unknowingly. Cards can get bent, creased, or even lost in the bed linens.

Additionally, tarot cards carry energetic imprints from readings and the user’s intentions. Sleeping with the cards may mix their energy with your personal energy and dreams, which can lead to confusion or muddled interpretations during readings.

It is generally advisable to store your tarot cards in a safe and dedicated space when not in use, such as a pouch, box, or tarot bag. This helps protect them from physical damage and keeps their energy clear and focused.

If you feel a strong connection to your tarot cards and prefer to keep them close, you can place them nearby on a nightstand or keep them within reach during your sleeping hours. However, it is still important to handle them with care and avoid potential damage.

Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide how you want to care for and interact with your tarot cards. The most important thing is to treat them with respect and ensure they remain in good condition for accurate and insightful readings.
