Tarot cards can be a great and fun tool to help in your life. They offer pictures and a story to show you something you need to hear and offer guidance from the spiritual realms. You can choose to get readings from professional tarot card readers, but you can also do them yourself. If you are going to get a tarot reading from someone else, always make sure that you trust them and that you resonate with their energy, so it's a good match. Read reviews if possible and ask friends for their recommendations.
If you choose to read them yourself get yourself a tarot deck. Most tarot decks can be found at crystal or spiritual stores, you can also find them at regular book stores and online since they are quite popular. If you already have a tarot deck you might want to learn how to enhance the tarot readings by using some crystals alongside them.
Crystals carry energy much like the tarot cards, so they complement each other nicely. You can use the crystals you already own, or you can purchase new ones that you want to use specifically for your tarot readings. When you are using tarot cards for guidance and spiritual messages, you're tapping into spiritual energy and your intuition. You choose the cards using your intuition, and so because of that, crystals that will be the most helpful will be those that enhance your intuition. So choose crystals like Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Celestite, Aquamarine, Labradorite, Azurite, and Moonstone. Having one or more of each of these crystals would work to do your tarot card readings.
You can place the crystals on a table or a cloth where you do your tarot readings. Place them in any formation that you like, choose the placement that feels best, and allow your intuition to guide you. You can also pair your tarot cards with the crystals and gemstones of your choice. So if one card has a message that feels connected to a crystal you have, then you can pair that crystal with the tarot card and even program it with that meaning by placing it on the card. When you're all done with your reading, you can cleanse and clear all of the crystals and your tarot deck too so that it's cleared of the energy of that reading and ready to go next time. You can also use crystal pendulums in your readings to give you clearer answers about what the cards are trying to tell you.
Some tarot readers will even give their clients a crystal to have after their reading, which will symbolize the messages that were shared. It's a nice memento and symbol to have from your reading that you can carry with you to remind you of the messages from that session. You can also store your tarot cards with crystals to keep them protected and to clear them of any energies they may absorb. Place a crystal such as Clear Quartz on top of the tarot deck before you store them away, or place the crystals around the tarot deck. You can also make crystal grids using tarot cards and crystals, which is a very nice combination and can create unique looking art as well. Have fun with it and enjoy the process.
