Crystal and tarot how to use them


Hello all:

I have see people who use crystals with their tarot readings, but do not know if there is an special ritual to do before a reading with the tarot.

can someone guide me in how to use them at the moment to do a reading? or if you feel to share your own process that is fine too.

thank you

Well, I think every reader is different, but I actually started doing this because a friend of mine on AT (his name is Aeon.Of.Horus) uses crystals in his readings and I found it so interesting. I then asked him about it, and he said that he only uses quartz. So that's now what I do!

What I do for my readings is that I use my two crystals (a clear quartz for drawing in positive energy and a smoky quartz for banishing negative energy) and let them sit on top of my deck after I ask it the question that it needs to answer (or if there's multiple questions involved then I tell spirit what the situation is). After letting it sit and soak up the crystal energy for a while (how much time depends on if I'm doing just a quick exchange or something more in depth), then I do the reading.

Having found myself interested in crystals before I got my first deck I decided that storing crystals with the deck couldn't hurt

Interestingly I find lately my readings are a little clearer and I think it tends to help banish the negative energies.

I use a clear quartz, a citrine , a rose quartz, amethyst and onyx.

I have a couple of larger crystal pieces that I use as a type of
scrying tool while I'm reading the cards. One is a piece of clear
quartz and the other is a smoky quartz crystal skull. If there is
a card (or two or three!) that I'm having trouble interpreting, gazing
into the candlelit crystals clears my mind and brings me to a more
meditative state. Images and ideas start to come, and the reading
starts to gain more clarity.

my favourite is amethyst. it's connected to the crown chakra. and i just love the energy! Also clear quartz is a great starter crystal to include in a tarot reading. I just place the crystal on the table with me. It also just looks pretty to have crystals on the table while you read for someone

I think it's important to pick crystals you are drawn to (use your intuition), then look up their meaning after. It can be a good indication of what you need to work on while doing readings.
