Phenomenons such as astrology, holistic healing, and spiritualism have experienced a renaissance in popularity in recent years. There was a time when these things were the interest of a very select few. Today, however, more and more people are opening their eyes to the possibilities and positive impact these alternative treatments and lifestyle choices can offer.
One area of interest that’s become particularly intriguing to many is that of the angel card reading. Sometimes confused with tarot cards, angel cards are actually something all of their own. Used to provide guidance in times of need, they can offer hope and a sense of direction to those who allow them into their lives.
Read on to find out exactly what is an angel card reading, and what it can achieve.
What Is an Angel Card Reading?
Although in reality angel cards are something entirely separate from tarot cards, making a comparison between the two is a good way to explain them to someone who is unfamiliar. Angel cards, like tarot cards, make up a deck of special cards, in which each one has its own meaning, interpreted in different ways.
Before it can be used, the deck must be blessed. For the reading to be accurate, the person for whom the reading is being performed must also touch the cards to impart their energy onto them.
Before an angel card reading, a question on which the cards should focus needs to be asked. It can be around relationships, career advice, or travel. The question shouldn’t be too specific, but rather seeking more general guidance in a particular area of life.
The angel communicator or psychic performing the reading will typically draw between three and twelve cards. They will then interpret these cards through the lens of the question asked, and use them to provide guidance or answers.
Different Angel Card Meanings
During the reading, the communicator will explain the meanings of the different cards they have pulled, and how they may be relevant. Below are examples of some of the cards that may be encountered.
- Archangel Raziel is the angel of wisdom who encourages us to reflect upon past lessons and experiences
- Archangel Michael the warrior angel is a powerful protective force for those experiencing tough emotional times
- Archangel Raphael the angel of healing helps to mend broken hearts and find solutions to problems
During an angel reading, it is advisable to pay attention not only to the cards. Things with special meanings, like a white feather, or the number 8 should be noted and interpreted along with cards themselves.
Tips for Attending an Angel Card Reading
For those who would like to experience an angel card reading, there are a few things that are important to keep in mind.
First, go into the reading with an open heart and an open mind. Second, don’t ask too many questions, but focus on the thing you would like guidance on most. Finally, keep your eyes and ears open for any possible signs or symbols that may be important.
