7 Best Tarot decks for Beginners | Um, OMG Tarot

When choosing a new deck, many people are encouraged to pick something that resonates with their consciousness.  Images that stimulate the subconscious mind is the goal however, it’s best to start with the basic cards with the traditional imagery.

The Traditional Rider-Waite Tarot decks are the best decks to start with.  It is recommended to because the numerology, symbolism and tarot card meanings inspire hundreds of other interpretative decks.  Also, don’t mistake the classic 78-card deck with an Oracle card deck.  They’re not the same thing, and in some instances, the numerology is differently associated.

It’s still unclear where the Tarot card “game” original began but throughout hundreds of years, tarot cards have been played all over the world.  The original deck was designed by Pamela Coleman Smith who lived as a struggling artist between New York, London and Kingston, Jamaica.  Her illustrations of the Tarot are reflected in the original Rider-Waite Deck (below).

The Anti-In-a-Funk Gemstone Starter Pack| Um, OMG Tarot

So, you’re having one of those days.

Sometimes a bad day starts with a bad dream.  The uneasy feeling of the unknown is troublesome.  There’s no tangible way to fix this problem and it hard to even explain the unbalance.  There are times, the solutions flood to us, and the know-how is present, but the “feels” are all out of sorts.

Until now…  Well not, now, gemstones have existed longer than humans. Their ancient metaphysical properties possess thousands of years of conscious belief those properties!  Here are the best gemstones (that I’ve personally used) for sadness!

  • Citrine Quartz
    • Yellow, orange, shiny–this stone just LOOKS HAPPY.  Citrine looks like it broke off from the sun! I prefer to wear citrine as a necklace or bracelet on my dominant hand.  Citrine is known to encourage positive thoughts, motivation and abundance.  This is the “cheer-me-up” stone.
  • Calcite
    • Orange, blue green–basically calcite comes in every color! Although I like to wear my calcite, I definitely keep chunks around my bed.  Calcite promotes inspiration and prosperity by removing energy blocks.  If you work with the chakras, you probably know all about calcite.  This stone is used to recharge other stones and realign energy!
  • Black Obsidian
    • Black, dense and shiny.  This is one of my favourite grounding stones.  Black obsidian is used for protection, meditation and blocking out bad energy.  I keep chunks of black obsidian at my front door and at my work station.
  • Rose Quartz
    • Light pink quartz? You’ll find this stone everywhere during Valentine’s day. That’s because it’s been long-believed that rose quartz radiates and attracts loving energy.  Rose quartz provides a dose of positivity which promotes self love.
  • Dragon’s Blood 
    • Red and green with a warped looking pattern.  The Dragon’s blood calls upon vitality, enthusiasm and courage.  I carry a tumbled dragon’s blood with me in my pocket on days I need to conquer.  This stone also draws affection from others and overall good vibes.  Dragon’s blood jasper is a good stone for the loner, as it increases self awareness and endurance.
