Must Have Crystals For Every Tarot Reader

Buying a crystal for your deck is highly optional if you're a beginner (since it's costly). However, I do suggest on getting them eventually. So why get one? Aside from the obvious fact that every crystal have different meaning and function, it is widely believed that they help clear, energise, heal, and boost your tarot decks. (Plus, it's a good-looking accessory to any tarot and non-tarot related photoshoot.)  Keep in mind that crystals differ in sizes too, as well as their prices. If you don't know what crystals to get, here are my 5 must have crystals for every tarot reader:

CLEAR QUARTZ An absolute must-have since it boosts the powers of other materials like herbs and other crystals, focuses and directs energy, especially quartz points, and can be used for protection balancing, meditation, and dispelling negative energy. It amplifies the energy level of your natural intuitive abilities as well as the crystals next to it. It is a super conductor and every Tarot reader should own one.

CITRINE It is well-known for its cleansing ability and can be used to cleanse you, your magical tools, other crystals, or even to diffuse a situation or disturbance in your home such as nightmares. Furthermore, it can be used to enhance psychic ability, making it a great companion to divination. This is also called a 'Success Stone', keep this with you to boost abundance.

ROSE QUARTZ You'll encounter a lot of love related questions and concerns that will leave you and your cards exhausted. Having rose quartz with you will attract romance, affection, and friendship, it also brings soothing, healing energy to your home, diffuse chaotic situations, and bring peace to those who are fighting, suffering a great loss or heartbreaks. 

MOONSTONE It aids in dream recall and increases intuition. It helps calm responses and stress, and avoid overreaction. It brings hope, enhances feminine energies, sensitivity, intuition, and psychic abilities. Besides, you can't leave out the Moon in tarot reading.

BLACK OBSIDIAN Black Obsidian’s perfect blackness draws negative energy into it – like a black hole for negativity – and therefore, is an extremely powerful cleansing crystal. It cuts through lies, confusion, psychic blockage and pulls all negative energy to itself. It is also excellent protection against psychic attacks.

BLACK TOURMALINE BLACK TOURMALINE is a shamanic stone, providing protection during ritual work. It can be used for scrying, and was traditionally used to point out a cause of trouble or an offender, and to indicate a good direction in which to move. To use Black Tourmaline in purification and protection rituals, create a ring of eight small natural tumble stones for a protection circle or place upon an altar. 

Honestly, I'm a little skeptical at buying crystals at first and often ignore them because they're too pricey for me. But since I get called in the Tarot ways and vowed to be serious about it, I decided to take my chances and heed. I was overwhelmed at how it did aid in my readings and esoteric work! It's amazing at how accurate each crystals help you out. I guess you might say now I'm a crystal collector too.
