Hi all :wave:

I was wondering if anyone uses crystals for divination (crystalomancy) and if so, do you use stones in a bag or cards?

I don't know if this counts, but I use Naisha Ahsian's Crystal Ally Cards a lot. I have nearly all the actual crystals featured in the cards (apart from a few hard-to-get/expensive ones) and so when I draw specific cards I can usually have the relevant crystals in my hand when doing the actual reading.

It was through crydtals that I first started on my spiritual path, and I have had a long-standing interest in rocks & minerals so the cards were a logical extension for me. I have to say I haven't as yet used crystals on their own for divination, but that may be something to explore.

I worked with the Jewels of the Lotus - Tibetan Gemstone Oracle deck that Kelly was drawing cards from before, and I've looked into every deck that's crystal based, cause I loves crystals ;) !

From that, and reading Cassandra Eason's books, here's a synopsis of how I interpret the crystals....

Shiva Lingam – Cocoon yourself. You need time to retreat and nurse the hidden jewel within you

Chrysocolla – be gentle with yourself. Time to withdraw from what you no longer enjoy to allow yourself time for rest.

Moldavite – don’t worry if you sometimes feel alienate from the material world. You have unique gifts that can be developed if you follow your unique path.

Boulder Opal- Cosmic ordering. You have the ability to get what you wish for if you clarify your vision and believe

Black Tourmaline – deflect negative away. Beware of shielding yourself from everything.

Obsidian – let old sorrow go, happier times are ahead. You have a great deal of power if you aren’t afraid to change status quo

Garnet – avoid anyone who is critical or discouraging if your pursuits are attracting envy. Let the ‘lady in red’ within rise to the surface.

Smoky Quartz – a promise of a better tomorrow, light at the end of what may seem a long tunnel

Boji Stones– Indicates a time of the shadow self. Your path to transformation has the need to look to your shadow self. Meet, accept and understand aspects u don’t like about yourself

Amber – a time for deciding what you want. Prosperity, your efforts may at last be rewarded

Moonstone – trust your intuition not external appearances in decisions. Listen to your dreams. Beware of taking the path of least resistance/easy route.

Fire Agate – believe in your inner fire , passion and ability and give it opportunity to be expressed

Carnelian – good time for independent action, don’t undervalue yourself. What would make personal happiness and fulfilment, aim for personal goals. You can achieve anything.

Rutile Quartz – represents your inner treasure of resources/ experience to help if starting over again or seeking change. Believe in self. Look for hidden benefits.

Jade – respond gently and with compassion to those who are being difficult, see their personal unhappiness and inadequacy

Peridot – good fortune, in-flow of money, love, luck and peace. Dealing with hiccups in life.

Imperial Topaz – prosperity, wealthy lover, legal aptitude. Guard against gossip and spite.

Citrine – joy in all aspects; time to communicate ideas & needs clearly, especially at work. Try new activities. Make time for creative talents, they may be lucrative.

Apatite – you can draw strength from those around, but sometimes need to ask for help, especially if you are usually strong.

Rose Qtz – you may become a peacemaker, but don’t let yourself be hurt. Blossoming love or friendship, or reconciliation in love

Rhodochrosite – look at any experience as part of a wider patter to maximise opportunities and minimise problems. Few things are accident or can’t be redeemed

Ruby – you stand out as an individual and will be rewarded for your efforts. Beware of danger and seeing red.

Kunzite – flow with life and allow events to unfold and resolve themselves rather than confronting issues.

Rubellite Tourmaline – By nature a caring person. Guard against unconditional love if it is damaging you. Show tough rather than unconditional love.

Aventurine – excellent time to take a chance to gain by speaking out, trying a new money-making idea or following an inspiration.

Malachite – follow your heart but do not be swayed by sentiment or pressurised by those who appeal to your emotions. A time for tough love.

Emerald – increase in prosperity, preserving or healing in/fidelity, attract love

Dioptase – gracefully let go of what can’t be mended and above all forgive yourself for being only human

Green Tourmaline – paternal, nurturing. Either a male figure, or requiring you to have that capacity to nurture, and be cruel to be kind.

Turquoise – you may be called upon to arbitrate, speak out or take the lead in bringing a matter to fruition.

Aquamarine – a stone of travel, either possible travel or an opportunity to widen your mental and spiritual horizons.

Sapphire – a stone of new love, commitment and fidelity. Purity of thought and purpose.

Celestite – don’t fill your mind with worries about what might happen as this may prevent you from enjoying/gaining full benefit from present situation.

Blue Topaz – you are not expressing your inner truth. Need clear communication of point of view. Rational, artistic talent. React calmly. Clairaudience.

Sodalite – be slow to speak and measure your words wisely in any situation where your opinion is asked or making a decision

Azurite – listen to your dreams for guidance, trust inner wisdom.

Amethyst – feeling stressed, exhausted, or experienced difficulties recently. Issue of boundaries and control. Need for a to-do list and rational approach.

Lapis Lazuli – stick to your principles and rise above any pettiness and attempted double-dealing. Have confidence.

Sugilite – a time for the inner spiritual/healing nature to rise to the surface. A time of development and growth intuitively.

Clear Quartz – a time for optimism and clarity of outlook, especially about a new beginning.

Iolite – a new acquaintance or family addition may have hidden depths, so try a new approach if you are finding them difficult to warm to.

Diamond – clear anxiety, negativity. Integration of mind, body & spirit. Ability to achieve in a life time what will be remembered forever.

Selenite – nothing can be changed about the past, but it forms the basis from which we create our future if we take the beauty & worth and let the rest fall away.

Herkimer Diamond – The cosmic divining rod - helps is around to point you in the right direction. Effective mental function, see wider picture of own life. Spiritual connection with others.

Wow, that's brilliant, thanks for posting that! Its been ages since anyone posted on here so that's a good start! I do use crystals for protection and cleansing so I do use them with my cards before I do a reading, but not in terms of the reading itself. I'd love to do it, but I'm not sure how I'd start...

:) thanks for your response Twink :)

It's certainly easier with the cards, as they show each stone with chakra placement and associated element, but I do also have a collection of the stones in a pouch and draw from them as a reading.

I guess I'd start with a pouch of just a few that you already have a good resonance with / knowledge of.... or read Cassandra Eason's book.

I found that learning the divinatory meaning of crystals gave me a fresh and deeper understanding of their energy and properties :)

It's all fascinating stuff! :grin:
