Crystals and Tarot cards
Many people have personal associations between specific Tarot cards and crystals.
and several books and tarot traditions also have lists of correspondences.
Some people use Crystals in a form of divination with or like Tarot cards. They may substitute crystals for the Tarot cards or read the Tarot card for chosen crystals. You can also use the crystals to enhance or carry the energy and intention of specific Tarot card in healing or other work. Ursula Markam's "Fortune telling with Crystals & Semiprecious Gemstones" It is out of print and I have not seen copy yet but have long done my own work in this area inspired by Mary Greers' book " Tarot for Yourself".
I have a German Gemstone Tarot deck which has very nice images of a crystal or stone on each card .
The designations are different than the suggestions I've listed. The deck is quite nice though the Major Arcana are not numbered and One would have to be very familliar with Tarot card meanings to use the deck in Tarot readings. I wrote the numbers on the major arcana cards to help me .
I cannot offer any particular guidance on using crystals as Tarot cards directly. Though one way you can use this correspondence is to choose the crystal that most attracts you or another person and consider the qualities and information of the related Tarot card. I had used used a Tarot, crystal combo in healing work many years ago but my choices were intuitive. Below are some suggestions from several different sources including some personal choices. Most people seem to stick with the major arcana unless they have a crystal Tarot deck. Stone Divination is called lithomancy there are many different forms of stone divination. You can draw the stones from a bag or cast them into a circle and read the stones as you would read the Tarot.
For healing work and enhancing affirmations You can charge or infuse or harmonize a clear quartz crystal or an appropriate stone with a specific tarot card energy. Usually this is done by holding the card and the crystal together, or putting the crystal on the cards and using focused attention/ intention to request and fix the energy to be carried by the crystal. Many people carry clear quartz with their Tarot cards .
