How do I get rid of Tarot cards?

My friend got me a pack of tarot cards off ebay about 2 years ago. when I was going through them I noticed a few cards were missing and I never wanted to use them because I had a bad feeling. I want to get rid of them but I don’t know if I should give them to a friend, or burn them…. I don’t want to sell them on ebay just because its not guaranteed someone will buy them.


  1. Put them in recycle. If you’re concerned about the energy they contain, burning won’t necessarily destroy it. It’s more apt to just release it. If you believe in the magical or supernatural aspect, burning can release negative (or positive) energy into the air thru the smoke. Putting them in the recycle bin accomplishes two things, one it’s good for the environment. Two, the cards and their energy are going to a good place, the Earth (via the landfill) which can only be a good thing if they have negative energy attached to them. Recycling or composting is a good way to get rid of most magical tools.

  2. If no one buys them the first time, couldn’t you just put them on ebay again?
    Personally I’d drop them in the collection plate at the nearest church.

  3. Donate them to the Goodwill or the Salvation army. The tarot superstition only works on you if you believe in it. My mom gave me a pack when I was 16, and I just threw them away. They never returned… but I don’t believe in that stuff.

  4. burn them with a sage stick, wave a crystal pendulum counter clockwise three times, click your heels and say “evil spirits begone!” Then have a feng shui guy cleanse the whole dwelling of negative energies.
    Or just put them in the trash.

  5. The best way would be to recycle them. Clearly you cannot regift them as some cards are missing. If you do not wish to recycle them I suppose a normal trash can will do…though that would be somewhat irresponsible.

  6. Hello B
    If they a deck has cards missing you could try reselling them on ebay, someone may wish to have missing cards put back into their own deck. You will not know if someone will buy them until you try.
    If not – why burn them? just put them in the bin, unless you like the artwork then frame some.
