I’m back with another shop roundup! This time, I’ll be sharing where to buy tarot cards in the Philippines, so you can kickstart your mystical journey or add to your deck collection. These stores would also usually have oracle cards, astrology cards, and other spiritual books—so if you were looking to add those things to your cart as well, you wouldn’t be disappointed.
A small disclaimer before I proceed: I haven’t purchased from two of the stores in this list, which I’ve indicated below. However, I can vouch for their authenticity! So, let’s get down to it.
P.S. If you’re looking for a Reiki-infused online Tarot reading, I offer this service. Click here to book a session with me. ♡
1. Fully Booked
I found out that Fully Book sold tarot and oracle decks from a dear mentor. I attended her sound healing class three years ago, and she whipped out two decks for our group to draw from. I ended up buying one of the decks that she used in the class and gifted it to one of my best friends. I’ve since bought other decks from Fully Booked, including Wisdom of the Oracle and The Lightseer’s Tarot. Naturally, there are also tarot books here.
Online Shop: https://www.fullybookedonline.com/ or check their official Shopee and Lazada stores
Physical Store: See the complete list of Fully Booked branches here
Price range: Varies, but they usually carry more affordable decks in the ~1,000 range
If you’re looking for decks that are a little bit harder to get ahold of, Stillness (aka Create in Stillness) will be your go-to shop. This local shop is based in Batangas (according to their Shopee account), and I’ve gotten ahold of a couple of indie decks from them. They also sell art materials under the alias Artemis Paints. The shop owner is kind, and their packaging is also well-thought-out.
3. Scarlo Philippines
Similar to Stillness, Scarlo Philippines also sells authentic oracle and tarot decks. This local shop is based in Makati (according to their Shopee account). While I haven’t had the pleasure of buying from them directly, I have seen good reviews from other local buyers on Shopee, which makes me confident to place them on this list. I’ve also inquired with them before—unfortunately, what I wanted was out of stock—so I know they are responsive.
4. Practical Magic
Practical Magic is a local business run by Filipina fempreneur Chinggay Labrador, who is also the deck’s creator bearing the same name. Besides carrying her tarot deck, she also has other Pinoy decks, spiritual books, and goodies in her online shop. This is the second store (and last in this list) where I haven’t been able to shop personally yet, but I am a fan of the brand. Support local. 🙂
Online Shop: https://www.practicalmagic.co/shop-ph
Physical Store: None
Price: Varies in the 1,600~1,800 range for decks, 100~1,000 for everything else
5. The Third Eye Wellness
I bought my first ever deck at The Third Eye Wellness three years ago! Someone brought me here on a surprise spa date, and I had no idea that this was a spiritual store. I was shocked (in a good way) to see tarot decks lining up the shelves in their cafe-slash-waiting area, so I had to check them out. They also run workshops and offer healing sessions, in case you’re interested.
Online Shop: They go by the URL https://mindbodyenergy.ph/
Physical Store: 6th Floor, 20th Drive Corporate Center, 20th Drive, McKinley Business Park, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, 1634 Metro Manila
Price: Varies in the ~1,500 range as far as I recall
6. Book Depository
Book Depository is a massive online store carrying books on practically any genre—including tarot and oracle decks! I’ve purchased here before along with a friend’s order, and the good news is, they ship for free worldwide. The only catch is they don’t do door-to-door deliveries, so you’d have to pick up your parcel at your nearest post office and pay the corresponding fees. You’ll also have to wait for about 4-6 weeks before your package arrives, as orders dispatch from the UK. (Sidebar: They temporarily stopped shipping to the Philippines due to the pandemic, but as of May 2021, they do again. Yay!)
Online Shop: https://www.bookdepository.com/
Physical Store: None
Price: Varies, but they usually carry more affordable decks in the ~1,000 range. Also, free shipping!
If you have a bit more cash to spare, and you really can’t find that deck you want in the local market, then Amazon can help! I’ve placed a couple of orders here, especially when it’s a newly released deck, and I can’t wait (LOL, patience is not my strong suit) for it to get acquired locally. And since this is Amazon we’re talking about, they’re quick and customer-centric. My packages arrive in a week. I’ve had an issue with a previous order where they replaced it right away with their hassle-free returns process (it’s free, and DHL comes to pick it up at your house). So, all in all, I’d order here again.
Online Shop: https://www.amazon.com/
Physical Store: None
Price: Varies in the 1,000~2,000 range | Shipping ranges from 600~1,000 depending on the speed
8. Tarot and Oracle PH: Buy, Sell, Swap
Last but not least, I want to share a buy-sell-swap page I created a couple of months ago on Facebook! I thought of this after thinking of potentially decluttering some of the decks in my collection and thought that there is probably a community of Pinoy tarot readers who might be feeling the same. It’s a small group with about 125 members as of writing, but I thought it would be nice to give it a shot. Sellers are required to disclose that they are selling authentic decks. You can tap me for assistance in identifying if the deck is fake or not. 🙂

Physical Store: None
Price: Varies, since all are secondhand
