How To Do A Oracle Card Reading

Updated: Jul 12, 2022

Interested in doing a card reading for yourself or for someone else? Ready to whip out your new oracle deck?

These steps will allow you to properly handle your oracle cards and treat them as the divination tools that they are. Whether you are reading for yourself or someone else, it's important to set the intention of providing an accurate, honest reading for the highest good.

These types of readings can be done in person or video conference or by phone, just like all readings; it does not need to be in person. (if you are doing distant readings obviously you will pick the cards for your client).

  2. Light some candles/incense.

  3. Gather crystals and put them throughout your workspace. Ideally, crystals that have a high vibration and help connect to spirit (selenite, clear quartz, fluorite, amethyst, and sodalite are some of my favorites!)

**Please note you do not have to follow these rituals, do what YOU feel comfortable with and what works best for you.

This is letting the spirit know that you are respecting and taking this work and the divination you choose to work with seriously. I have included a prayer below but any type of prayer that you are comfortable with will work.
