Q: Does divination tell me the future?
A: No and yes, not in the way you would think. Divination, when you are trying to figure out a future situation or how to reach your goal, is more like a suggestion; there are ways to improve yourself or to change what you are doing to go down the path you wish for. Looking into the future is not impossible, but it is definitely not a beginner's lesson. Also, divination is not limited to concepts, but to souls, spirits, and deities. Take the time to thoroughly research the topic, because there is so much to learn and equally as much to make a mistake with.

A: There is an explanation in our Blogs of how it feels to have a "big dream" (when it does not come from yourself and feels like something is trying to communicate), and how you can practice keeping receiving those dreams.

Q: Where can I buy crystals?
A: Start by googling local “crystal” “mystic” or “spiritual” shops. These are a great option because the shop owners are often knowledgeable and can point you in the direction of whatever you may need! If you can’t find a physical shop - look online! There are many crystal retailers on Etsy, and most have IG’s to accompany their shops where you can view the crystals, or even participate in auctions to get them for a good price! *Note - Right before large gemstone shows such as the one is Tucson, shops sell out their supply to make room for new crystal bbs... that’s the BEST time to grab sweet pieces for amazing prices! You can also look on Amazon or eBay, but do your research on the retailers to make sure they are legit first!

Q: Which Tarot deck is good for beginners?
A: The only context you can use this question for is for pricing really; any deck is good to start with! There are themes and art styles and the number of cards can vary per deck, but this has little to do with the actual difficulty of use. However, if you were to ask this about Oracle cards, that's a bit different, because picking your oracle deck sometimes includes a theme, such as 18+ readings. Oracle cards are also very different when it comes to the card set up, and you will find there is no major/minor arcane, no wands, swords, cups, or pentacles (at least, if there is its just a picture; each card has its own importance, and equally so). If you are asking which would be better after seeing this, oracle is debatably easier simply because sometimes you really don't need to memorize meanings; there are phrases on some cards, and the imagery is something unique to each card deck, down to each card.
Q: Why are crystals beneficial?

Q: Do I have to be an Oracle to use Oracle cards?
A: No! You do not have to be an Oracle to use Oracle cards. The difference between Tarot cards and Oracle cards depend on which you connect to. If you feel like there is no connection to Tarot cards, try Oracle cards!
Q: How do I know which crystal is right for me?
A: Choosing crystals can be very intimidating, especially walking into a shop full of them! Choosing the right crystal can depend on if you are looking for a specific crystal, or not. Sometimes, people can be drawn to a crystal for no reason at the time, then research it and find out it may assist with something currently going on in their life! Others focus on the frequency and energy of the crystal. If it feels to be a match, then it’s theirs! Really focus on the energy of the crystal at hand, then determine if it is right.
