How to make your own DIY oracle cards!

Using oracles cards can change your life in so many positive ways!

The amount of time I spent fretting and worrying about things lessened once I started using oracle cards.

I love using them so much that I created printable ones to correspond with all of the tools and techniques in my Free Spirit Guidebook as a bonus.

You might not know this but you have a lot of the answers that you are looking for.

You just need to slow down long enough to listen. Not always an easy task and that is why oracle cards can help.

Creating your own deck can help you create cards that have a more personal meaning to you. They are also fun to use in readings with other decks too.

In this video, I share how to make DIY cards based on how you would make a vision board.

Let your creativity flow!

When I did this, I matched up colors and vibes and really love how the final cards turned out. You can see them below.

DIY Oracle Card Supplies:

  • magazines
  • glue sticks or tape
  • index cards
  • scissors
  • washi tape (optional)
  • mod podge (optional)
  • laminating machine (optional)

You will start out cutting out pictures, patterns, and colors. Then you will focus on words or phrases like

“Live your best life.”

“Dive in.”

“You can do anything.”

Cut everything out first and then start to match color patterns. Once you have them grouped together you can begin to glue them to the cards.

To finish, you might like to cover them with Mod Podge or laminate them.

How to use your Oracle Cards

  • Sit up tall
  • Hold them in front of your heart
  • Take some deep breaths
  • Call on your guides
  • Optional: Say: “Guides of the highest frequency, what do I need to know right now?”
  • Imagine the guidance coming to you or from within you
  • Shuffle the cards
  • Pick a card
  • Intuitively interpret the card
  • See how you can bring it into your life
  • Act on it

That is how you make your own amazing, personal oracle card experience.

If you end up making your own deck, please share with me! On social media (Facebook & Instagram), in the comments, or email me at hello@kerryburki.com.

Pick A Crystal – Mini-Reading

Pick the crystal you are drawn to the most and share it in the comments.

During my book launch parties, I asked people to do this and then shared the qualities associated with the one they chose and a little ritual to do based on the Working with Crystals lesson in my new Free Spirit Guidebook.

The image above shows which one you chose and then you can scroll down for your reading.

1. Selenite – You are picking up a lot of people’s negative energy. Either using selenite or imagining it in your hand, move it around your body like you are clearing it of negative energy and flick it away. After you are done, imagine yourself surrounded by white light. Repeat as needed.

2. Tiger’s Eye – You need strength in times of stress. Either carry it with you to feel more grounded or place your hand just above your navel at your Solar Plexus Chakra, imagine yellow light there and repeat, “I trust my gut instincts and stand in my personal power.

3. Red Jasper – You need help with anxiety now or in the near future. Take some time each day to breathe deeply and imagine roots coming out of your feet and base of your spine and going deep into the earth. Feel as though you draw up the stabilizing energy of the earth with each breath.

4. Snowflake Obsidian – You might experience anger over the next weeks. You can hold this stone or any stone in your hand for a quick release of anger. Put it in the sun after.

5. Sodalite – You are seeking harmony with your words and your thoughts. Take time to meditate by imagining blue light at your throat and indigo light at your 3rd eye. Forgive yourself for negative thoughts and then choose a more positive one. Also, pause before you speak.

6. Amethyst – You have been feeling like you are in the murkiness of the earthly world. Take time to imagine a 1000-petaled lotus opening on the crown of your head connecting you to the wisdom of the universe.

7. Clear Quartz Crystal – You are seeking clarity right now. Imagine a wind coming in and blowing all around you, removing old, stagnant energy. Then imagine yourself surrounded by white light. Say, “I can see clearly now.” Stay open to new opportunities and aha moments.

8. Rose Quartz – Love, love, love. Imagine rose-colored light around your heart. Imagine growing to surround your whole body. Then imagine it growing and surrounding the whole world. Love is everywhere and you are connected to it.

9. Howlite – Your life is asking you to be more discerning. What are some things you do that help you feel more confident in your decisions? Exercising, meditating, baths? Make sure you are doing them so you can act tactfully and joy and ease.

10. Green Aventurine – Luck and success are making their way to you if they are no already here. If you feel like you have certain behaviors or thought patterns that block you from receiving then please take a hard look at those now. You are worthy of all of your desire. Repeat. I am loving and lovable. I welcome luck and success in my life on all levels. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Scorpio New Moon Card Spread & Ritual

Happy New Moon in Scorpio! I love setting intentions on New Moons and sometimes it is nice to tap into the energy of the current sign.

Scorpio is a Water sign that is often associated with intensity, magnetism, mysterious, shadow-side, loyalty, sexiness, possessiveness, power, bravery.

I created a card spread to help you bring the positive aspects of this sign into your life.

If tarot or oracle cards are not your thing, then this is more of an intuitive journal challenge.

Here’s how this works:

Supplies: card deck (optional), journal, pen or pencil

  1. Find a quiet place where you can dedicate a little bit of time to this activity and yourself.
  2. Light a candle or incense, burn some sage or turn on an essential oil diffuser.
  3. Set the intention that this time is for introspection that will help you move forward towards your desires.
  4. Ask for guidance from God/Universe/Spirit, Mother Earth, guides, angels, etc.
  5. Take 5 deep breaths. You can follow this with some Lunar Breathing if desired.
  6. Ask the following questions. If using cards, shuffle and either pick the card you are drawn to, the one on top or bottom, or the one that falls out. No cards? Then listen to your intuition and write down what pops in your head.

1. What has been going on under the surface for me lately?

2. Does something need to bubble up?

3. Where does it feel appropriate to have a bit of mystery right now?

4. How can I embrace my darker side during this lunar cycle?


Reflect on what has come up.

Set an intention related to question 4 during this next moon cycle.
