where can i buy tarot cards in the san francisco bay area?
i need to buy a couple of nice sets of tarot cards to give to a friend. she is really into the stuff and the bookstore variety just won’t do.
does anyone know of some cool magic shops or whatever where i can pick up a couple of nice deck of tarot cards in the san francisco, oakland, or berkeley area? actually, just about anywhere near the bay area will do. have car and will travel.
if there is a nice website where i can buy my tarot cards, then please enlighten me. it will also be very appreciated.

Have you done a search? I am sure there are plenty. Plus the store—Spencer’s–has those. But I don’t like that kind of thing.

San Jose Metaphysical bookstore is nice, big selection, nice vibe. Also East Meets West Bookstore in Palo Alto

is okay to store my tarot cards in a metal box?
i have this cute metal box but im reluctant about storing my tarot cards in it, i would rather have a wooden one but i cant find a cheap one thats nice. i’m going to look at goodwill and ebay has expensive shipping on all their boxes. so, is metal okay and does anyone have any other ideas of where i could get a box?
Suggestion by Darth Snape
It is ok. Just poke a few holes so the energies can pass through.

The fact that you are reluctant gives you your answer. Your tarot cards are personal to you and as such whatever you feel is right for them is right for them 🙂
In some magical traditions the use of metal is prohibited, in others it is perfectly fine. Some people feel that metal is insulating, some feel it is conductive. If you feel wood is better then go for wood.
As for where to get them, I’ve found a lot of DIY and hobby shops have some nice wood boxes that you can decorate yourself, or there are always charity shops although you’ll need to cleanse it before use.
Often people just keep their cards in an embroidered bag. There is a saying that you should keep them wrapped in purple cloth and with a moonstone. Not everyone follows this however.

It should be stored in wood as it is a natural substance the wood representing trees and the earth it stands in.
Are tarot cards reading against other religion?
I want a set of tarot cards to learn how to read and use them, but i’m wondering is it against other religion like Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism to use it. Is it against god to use tarot cards and is it sinful?

If God is real, he is laughing at you right now.

I know it is against Christianity to use tarot cards. I wouldn’t know about Buddhism or Hindu, but I’ve asked several pastors this same question and they all told me it was against the Bible.
Suggestion by Secret_Garden
according to christianity yes but I don’t about hinduism or buddhism .. I am not sure if they believe in this method but they will have another method for reading the future.
