Have you ever heard the myth that it’s bad luck to buy a tarot deck for yourself? It’s often said that buying a tarot deck that you’ll use yourself can cast a black cloud over your readings and affect your ability to unlock your full potential.
So is there any truth to this or is it in fact just a myth? Let’s investigate…
Where does this myth come from?
This myth stems back hundreds of years to when tarot decks were difficult to find. In some areas, tarot cards were even illegal! Due to the shady nature that surrounded these cards, they were often sold in secret and bought on the black market in a similar way that illegal products are sold today. Back then, if you wanted a pack of tarot cards, you needed to know the right people.
Is it true?
Here at Wishing Moon, most of our readers consider this to be nothing more than a myth and think nothing of buying a tarot deck for themselves. We often buy tarot cards for ourselves and there are absolutely no consequences, as far as we’re concerned.
However, as with most things in the spiritual realm, this is subjective. Some of our readers believe that receiving a pack of tarot cards as a gift automatically blesses you with good luck. They feel it adds an extra element of magic and fascination to what is already a enchanting process.
Buying tarot cards as gifts can be a lovely tradition
Although it’s incredibly unlikely that your world will fall apart as soon as you buy a pack of tarot cards for yourself, having an agreement with a spiritual pal to buy each other’s tarot cards can be a lovely ritual to adopt. And with so many different types of tarot card on the market, it can be incredibly exciting to open up a fresh pack bought for you as a gift.
