How to use Tarot cards safely



After so many inquiries, I thought it was time to write this blog to explain how to use Tarot cards safely.

Tarot cards are a powerful divination tool. When used correctly, Tarot can offer you great insight into any area of life where there is uncertainty. Perhaps you are at a crossroads, wondering if you will ever find love, or are even seeking general life guidance. A Tarot reading can help you to make these decisions by offering you higher-self wisdom and by predicting potential outcomes.

Over the last 20 years, I have provided psychic insight for thousands of clients, helping them to get from A-Z on the smoothest and happiest route available.

Thanks to Hollywood movies and certain religions, many people have been put off the Tarot cards, worried in case they are safe to use or not.

Rest assured, Tarot cards are safe to use so long as you take steps to protect and clear your energy before and after consulting them.

Why you need to protect your energy when using Tarot

When using Tarot cards, you are in effect reading energy. The images on the cards serve as a tool that allows you to unlock parts of your consciousness that are usually closed during regular states of conscious awareness. Using your intention, the cards can open gates in the mind enabling you to access previously hidden knowledge. This process is not exclusive to Tarot cards, there are many methods that will grant you access to higher realms of awareness.

During a Tarot reading, you need to protect your energy from:

Yourself If you are reading cards for yourself and are in a low mood, are angry or emotional you risk pulling the wrong cards – your vibration will magnetically draw you to pull the cards that reflect the mood you are in now, Tarot cards are like mirrors.

Low Vibrational Thought Forms As your consciousness travels through the astral realms you can be noticed by unsavory beings. Remember the moth to the flame?

Clients If you are reading for a client, it’s highly likely that they will have some sort of confusion or drama that is unfolding in their life, hence seeking guidance. If your energy is not guarded prior to the appointment you become an energy dumping ground.

Please don’t worry, this is not a scaremongering post, this is what I do for a living! But as with everything, there are correct ways of doing things. If you are a driver you wear a seatbelt, if you’re a GP you get a flu shot. Being prepared ensures your safety and the accuracy of the psychic reading.

How to use Tarot Cards Safely

  1. Clear your energy by passing burning sage though your aura, the room in which you are working and the cards. Palo Santo or my Good Vibes Spray are equally as effective.

  2. Take some time to meditate, to quieten your mind from wandering thoughts.

  3. Get your energy flowing by deep breathing or chanting.

  4. Expand your aura out as far as feels comfortable.

  5. Invoke psychic protection to be placed around your aura in a bubble. Archangel Michael or Christ light are favorites of mine.

  6. Set the intention of giving a clear and concise reading by saying out loud “May the highest vibrational guides, ancestors and angels surround me now, holding the space for wisdom and knowledge to enter. For the highest good of all, Amen.

  7. You’re ready to read!

Afterward, close down the energy channels by giving thanks, passing smoke through your aura and cards once more and finally by sucking your aura closer back in towards you.

Keeping your cards wrapped in black silk or in a little bag keeps the energy safe until its time to get them out again.

That short routine should be sufficient, it has served me well over the years. Making my readings clearer and without taking on other peoples negativity.

Are Tarot Cards Evil? Are Tarot Cards Safe?



With Claire Stone


So, its old news that Doreen Virtue has denounced Tarot and all things that are ‘non-christian’. However, she is still frequently posting videos spreading fear and uncertainty within the MBS sector, touching mainly the newest of spiritual seekers. Well-seasoned lightworkers can see this situation for what it is, and have the simple attitude of live and let live; Knowing full well that other peoples business has nothing to do with us, thus not wasting energy on it. I’m not going to slate Doreen, she is merely being true to herself, yet it is important to remember that her truth is not necessarily the truth of reality. 

First and foremost, Doreen Virtue is a Christian; a man-made religion that has a LOT to answer for. My opinion is that it offers the public fragments of truth so that they can control the masses. The Catholics achieved its greasy grip on humanity by invasion and brute force. After imposing their ‘rules’ upon people, they proceeded to rape the villages, not just of their wealth but of their human rights, traditions, and deities. The punishment to those who didn’t adhere? Torture and death. This sounds more like the Devils work to me! 

I won’t get on my soapbox about Christianity, do your research, it’s easy to find the trail of horror that follows it. 

And just for the record, I LOVE JESUS. Yes, Jesus the man who attained the Christ consciousness, the man with the purest of hearts I adore him and do not affiliate him with Christain religion what so ever. I mean come on, every single holy day is stolen from an ancient Pagan Sabbats. Do people really believe that Jesus was born on Christmas day? Even though the same myth-  the Son (sun) born of a virgin on Dec 25th appears consistent through history.

                                                                                                         IMAGE via

For more in-depth info on the meaning of the ‘son’ of God and Dec 25th, I recommend you watch the documentary Zeitgeist at

So back to the question at hand, Are Tarot Cards Evil? The answer quite simply is NO, but if you are asking if they are dangerous then the answer can be YES. And by yes I mean if you misuse them, or naively do not use psychic protection then like anything you can get into hot water. You see, when you dip your toes into the world of the occult ( hidden), you are stepping into the unknown.

Ask yourself, if you went to a different country tomorrow and didn’t know anything about the place or had no guide to assist you could this be potentially dangerous? Yes, of course, it could. Imagine if you got dropped off into the Amazon jungle. There would be many potential threats wouldn’t there? Such as snakes and poisonous insects. How would you know where you could go for shelter and which of the fruits were safe to eat? The truth is you couldn’t know, and as it is also the same within the spiritual world. If you do not have a spiritual teacher or a spirit guide to work with you can come up against sticky situations.

What makes Tarot cards unsafe? Tarot cards are not evil. But the one thing that can make them unsafe is lack of care and respect when using them. The Tarot Cards simply awaken parts of your brain that are not always in use, imagine the doors of intuition slide wide open as you begin to shuffle, as the act of shuffling itself is an intention, you are posing a question. But who are you asking for the answers? You are working with the Divine, hence divination – ‘communicating with the divine’.

After performing house clearances in the past I never underestimate the power behind psychic protection. As a professional Tarot reader for over 20 years, my advice to you would be to go with your gut when it comes to using forms of divination. My belief is that they are safe, yet I take precaution methods as to not allow dark entities sneak in through the gateways that open up in my mind when I am working in this way. Its worth remembering that these gateways can also open up during meditation, when taking any forms of medication and when drinking alcohol, so this awakening is not unique to divination. 

Take a deep breath in, clear your mind and ask yourself, what is true for you? Forget what religions say, your parents, Doreen Virtue or even myself for that matter. The only person that knows what is good for you is you! What does your gut say about you working safely with Tarot cards?

Tarot cards are simply tools. They can be used by good or bad people. It doesn’t mean that they are bad. neither will they bring you bad luck, just use them with integrity and all will be well.

Strawberry Full Moon 17th June.

Strawberry Full Moon 17th June 2019



On Monday 17th June, our Strawberry Full Moon will be bulging with sweet juicy energies. This could be just the tonic needed after last month’s full moon which had an unpredictable influence over our emotions, leaving many of us feeling slightly disheveled and mentally up in the air.

Fortunately, the fresh vibes from the approaching Strawberry full moon are much gentler on the spirit, making this a perfect time to fill yourself back up and quench your thirsty soul.

Falling under the sign of Sagittarius, this moon stimulates your passion and desire, you may just find yourself on a random adventure as spontaneous plans are most likely to arise.     

ROMANCE – Passion and romance are in the air! Formally known as ‘The Rose Moon’ or ‘The Mead Moon’ this moon is oozing with lusty, hazy, sexual energy. You are just like honey, sweet and attractive.

Many romantic relationships begin in this month, whilst others tie the knot, love and commitment are in the air.

If you’re already in a relationship, you’re likely to have a surge of positive emotions towards your other half. Your connection deepens, bringing you deep contentment. If you have recently been lacking in ‘spark’ then this is the optimal time to spice things up and inject a big dose of passion, setting you back on track. Make an effort to get close.

If you are single, and on the lookout, get your glad rags on and get yourself out there, no one is left untouched by this delicious energy, making this an optimal time to meet your match. 

SPIRITUALITY – The root and Sacral chakra are buzzing, with all of the excess fire energy, take advantage and use it to transmute any residual emotional stress stirred up from last month.

Once you’re feeling refreshed and anew tap into creative aspects of fire energy, do something that feeds your soul. 

CAREER – This is a very inspirational time, ideas and epiphanies are in abundance so long as you take appropriate action and don’t just dream, your luck could just be in. This is a prime time to apply for that promotion or to start that project that has been on your mind.

With all of the good vibes in the air, your positive influence is noticed by others. 


To capitalise upon these energies why not perform a very simple candle magic ritual to infuse your life with more zest and passion?

Set an intention, what area of your life needs a kick start? Only choose one, I know its tempting but it’s better to drive all of your energies into one wish at a time, otherwise, you will dilute the energy, potentially not succeeding with great results.

You will need:

A red candle

Black pepper

Red juicy fruits, strawberries, or cherries.

Red item of clothing, scarf, underwear or lipstick.

*Optional – The items for your ritual bath are rose petals, finely ground salt and rose essential oil.


*On the evening of the full moon take a ritual bath to set you in the zone for creating magic.

I would add 1 handful of finely ground salt, a handful of rose petals and a few drops of Rose essential oil to a full bath.

*Imagine the magical ingredients of your bath seeding the vibrations of love and passion into the cells of your body.

*Setting your intention by speaking it out loud “I am so happy and grateful now that …….”

*Place your red item on as soon as you are dry. The color red draws additional potent energy towards your desire.

*Take your candle, holding the wick between your left fingers.  Say three times:

“On this night of fire, I claim my desire”.

*Sprinkle the black pepper out onto a clean work surface and roll the candle onto it say

“Add your heat, add your spark, bring forth light to where once was dark”

This will bring opportunities to light.

*To seal in the magic, place the candle down and light it whilst saying:

“For the highest good and filled with love”

This ensures that your wish will manifest if it is for the highest good of all beings.

*Eat your fruits while imagining your wish fully manifest, savoring the sweet juicy moments.

It is done! Don’t forget to thank your invisible helpers who orchestrate behind the scenes to help you to birth your dreams.

Wishing you all a blessed happy full moon. Please let me know, what did you wish for?

Love Claire.
