I love to use powerful crystals to enhance my other spiritual work – it makes SUCH a difference in my ability to feel physically connected to what I’m doing. If you’re looking to enhance your divination practice, the following stones are the 10 best Crystals for Tarot & Oracle Card readings.

Crystals for tarot and oracle card readings

Crystal oracle cards are one of the quickest and easiest ways to tap into your intuition and call forth just the message you need to get you headed in the right direction.

Whether you’re having trouble making a decision, need a little clarity about a situation, or want a little support and encouragement from the universe, oracle cards are a great tool to help you create just the mindset shift you need.

You can place these crystals in your sacred space or on your altar, keep them near you, hold them for their energy, or even create a grid or circle of stones around you during the reading. Crystals are such a great support to this work and can really enhance the intuitive process.



The 10 best crystals for Tarot & Oracle Card readings:

1. Angelite Best crystals for Tarot

Angelite has the power to invite your guides and angels in to support you during your reading so that they may provide support, wisdom, or clarity. I also find it to be really soothing, so if I’m feeling a little scattered or anxious, i’s a great crystal to have on hand to get you calm and centered before you begin.

Best crystals for Tarot2. Amethyst

Amethyst, a purple variety of quartz, helps you tap into your intuition and decipher any messages that are coming through during your reading. Have you ever pulled cards for yourself only to feel stumped when it came to actually interpreting them? Try holding an Amethyst crystal while contemplating the meaning of each card, and then of the reading as a whole for more clarity and to see the bigger picture of what this means in your life at this time.

Best crystals for Tarot3. Black Tourmaline

Black Tourmaline has the ability to keep you safe and protect you from outside energies while you’re divining. Because it helps keep you grounded during intense psychic or spiritual work, it makes a great companion stone for any form of divination.

Best crystals for Tarot4. Selenite

Selenite will ensure that your space is clear and free from stagnant energy or outside energetic clutter, a vital part of any successful reading. When there’s too much excess energy, distracted thoughts, etc. focus and interpretation become difficult. But Selenite helps you tune in so that important messages can come through loud and clear.

Best crystals for Tarot5. Clear Quartz

Clear quartz has the power to amplify your intention of receiving guidance from your cards throughout your reading. I recommend sitting with your stone in your sacred space before beginning your reading, and setting an intention for what you’d most like to receive. Alternatively, you can work with your Clear Quartz stone to help you get more specific about the question you’d like to ask during your reading so that any messages coming through will be focused and on point.

Best crystals for Tarot6. Rainbow Fluorite

Rainbow fluorite promotes mental clarity so that you can stay focused on what you’re doing and keep your mind from wandering during the reading. It also encourages sharp decision-making, so if you’re feeling torn between two different interpretations of a particular card or message, reach for some Rainbow Fluorite to help you feel into which one is most accurate (or if both are needed!).


7. Rose Quartz

Gentle but powerful Rose Quartz will remind you to stay heart-centered and compassionate during your reading. Whether you’re reading for yourself or for someone else, communicating from a place of compassion is important for seeing the bigger picture and for delivering difficult messages with empathy.

8. Smoky Quartz

Smoky quartz will keep you grounded, allowing you to connect to the energy of the earth while you’re tapping into the intuitive realm for your reading. It also has an amazing shielding energy.

9. Labradorite

Labradorite is a stunning crystal with the power to stimulate your inner eye and activate your intuitive gifts during your reading. This is one of the most helpful crystal companions for times when you’re feeling stuck or unsure about what question to ask, which deck to work with, how to interpret cards, or anything else that might be getting in your way of listening to your inner guidance.

10. Citrine

Lastly, Citrine will allow you to embrace your courage, enhancing your self-confidence as a card reader. Ultimately, this will help to promote successful outcomes when reading for yourself or for someone else. This isn’t to say Citrine encourages you to unquestioningly follow your intuition (which could be detrimental), but instead, it allows you to combine logic and reason WITH your intuitive guidance for the best results.

When you’re working on developing your intuition, becoming familiar with how to use your crystals in different divination practices can be really helpful.

    Thank you! Still never used crystals for card readings so far. I think I’ll use beloved Labradorite next time. And Citrine! Blessings!

    I want to know everything about my boyfriend in a relationship how it’s going to be now in your future and so much more

      In my experience, it’s best to read for yourself and your own relationships and not to try to do a reading about someone else – it’s more effective to think about what questions you have and how they pertain to you instead. <3 Sending you lots of care and support, Crystal Blessings <3
