Crystals for Tarot & Oracle Card Readings
Crystals and tarot go together like old guys and park benches, rainy days and a good book, Nutella and a spoon.
Whether you’re giving the reading or getting one, crystals always come in handy – not just for the sake of the reading, but for the cards themselves. Depending on their properties, crystals can bring specific vibes and energy to your readings when you keep them close by. For example, certain crystals can amplify the messages you receive from the reading, or if you’re an empathic tarot reader, you can use a crystal with grounding properties to help block out negative vibes.
Whatever you need – you can pretty much guarantee there’s a crystal for it. That’s right, crystals are awesome.
Here are some of our favourite crystals to enhance your next reading:
