Crystal oracle cards are amazing for readings; they are able to help you connect with your higher self, work with a certain energy, and have some guidance when needed. Crystal oracle cards can be a powerful divinatory tool as they come from ancient traditions and beliefs. If you are about to buy crystal oracle cards and want to know more about them, this article is for you!
Crystal oracle cards
Divination is a magical process that uses various tools to know the future. While performing this technique we focus the mind on the symbols in front of us and allow them to come into contact with our unconscious. In reality, these symbols are nothing but keys that allow us to unlock our psychic awareness. To realize this ancient art, what we need is to choose the tools and learn to use them, contacting that psychic awareness present in each of us. Divination with crystals is a perfect form of this ancient art. When you feel the need for advice on an important decision to make, you can turn to the crystals for help. We remember, however, that divination is a tool that we must use only when it is necessary. A few sessions will be useful to learn the consultation adequately, to face it in the right mental form, and to learn to listen to the unconscious. The reading of the stones is undoubtedly the best known and oldest form of divination; we have all heard of the famous crystal ball.
This magical instrument is a transparent hyaline quartz sphere. Quartz is not, however, the only stone suitable for reading the future; other crystals can be used as divination tools. In ancient Mexico, obsidian was used for this purpose and the Spheres of Beryl had the same use in the Renaissance. Some people still use crystals for divination, but it might be a bit too hard to find high quality crystals to work on it as online there are so many replicas that unfortunately, even if they look beautiful, they are not “true” authentic crystals. If you want to use crystals for divination in an easier way, you can rely on crystal oracle cards.
Crystal oracle cards: the deck
Now I present to you the deck of cards that you will use for the oracle of crystals. It is made up of 25 cards divided into five elements: Earth, Fire, Air, Water and Ether; each element has five cards associated with it.
On each card you will find the image of the stone, the symbol of the element, the planet, the chakra, the keyword, the zodiac sign, and the candle that you can light during the consultation. The color of each crystal has a precise meaning.
The colors of the crystals on the cards and their meanings
This might change according to the kind of deck you choose but usually it goes like this:
✨ White is associated with initiation, naivety, purity, and goodness of mind.
✨ Black means obstacles, difficulties, adversity, danger, disappointments, and lack of energy.
✨ Purple indicates prudence, shyness, modesty, and the search for balance.
✨ Red means energy, strength, aggression, power, passion, and determination.
✨ Blue means self-confidence, spirituality, tranquility, the ability to act, and healing.
✨ Pink indicates love, friendship, feeling, protection, and happiness.
✨ Green is well-being, harmony, peace, and money.
✨ Yellow is emotionality, gossip, envy, and jealousy.
✨ Orange means upcoming news, changes, and wishes fulfilled.
✨ Blue indicates inner serenity, and expectation.
✨ Brown is physical strength, success, and positivity.
The difference between a crystal oracle card deck and other decks
A crystal oracle card deck differs from others by the fact that it refers to the name of the crystal and basically nothing else. I’ve seen many decks like this, and I found it a bit confusing for someone not experienced in crystal history, properties, and meanings. In this case, if you are interested in a crystal oracle card deck, I highly recommend choosing a deck that comes together with a guidebook explaining each card with its image, its meaning, and how to use it properly, like this one. This is definitely not a beginner-friendly deck but, if you feel a connection with this kind of deck, don’t let this discourage you and go for it! Just make sure to spend more and more time exploring the magical realm of crystals to get to know the cards and their meaning even better and with a deeper sense of awareness and openness.
