Tarot Cards Rise in Popularity During the Pandemic

Tarot Cards Rise in Popularity During the Pandemic

The Popularity of Tarot Phone Readings

Lynn Araujo, an editor at US Games Systems in Stamford, USA, saw a huge growth in sales regarding tarot and oracle cards since she began working there in 2004. Worldwide, there has been a spike in the interest in tarot cards, especially readings done over the phone and online. Phone tarot readings have become the go-to for many people who have been unable to visit card readers and mediums personally.

Araujo claims that the company’s sales have doubled or even tripled yearly over the last decade. Araujo states that the company used to order a print run of about two/three thousand of each new deck—if they sold out in around six months, that was considered a good achievement. As time passed, demand went up, in recent years, an eight to ten thousand per print run has become more typical. The only thing limiting production now is their warehouse capacity, and there’s greater demand than they can physically fulfil.

How Covid Affected the Psychic World

The Covid pandemic is the most obvious explanation for why there has been such a huge surge in tarot card sales, with all the accompanying media interest. Tarot card readings over the phone and online have become popular due to the isolation imposed on people during the pandemic. Araujo said the company experienced a similar surge of interest in tarot cards after the 2008 financial crisis. Since the 2008 financial crisis, the workings of the psychic world has become more mainstream, so more people are turning to divination for answers.

In 2020 and 2021, practitioners offering tarot readings by phone have seen increased demand for their services. More and more people have wanted to know how they can deal with the life changes brought about by the pandemic while looking for ways to deal with the stress it has entailed.

Tarot Cards and Celebrity Endorsements

Nowadays, people are looking for insight into how they can approach a particular problem or change their mindset. People have come to accept tarot cards as part of the culture. Fashion lines from famous brands like Christian Dior have taken inspiration from tarot cards.

Game of Thrones, Disney characters, James Bond, Star Trek, Marvel Superheroes, and even Gummi Bears have inspired new tarot card design designs and themes. The public has even backed Kickstarter projects in for the designs of modernised versions of tarot cards. In the past decade, funding for these cards through Kickstarter adds up to $21.7 million. What is more interesting is that 69 per cent of these pledges came between 2020 and 2021, with the biggest jump in the popularity of tarot cards falling between April and May 2020.

Tarot and Oracle Cards

Araujo has also worked on oracle decks, which have fewer cards and are almost a lite version of the tarot deck. Oracle cards are not structured like a traditional tarot deck and are more straightforward—very good for beginners because they are easier to learn and understand. Many people combine tarot and oracle decks when doing readings.
