TAROT & ANGEL CARD READING
Tarot reading is an ancient art and many people will be familiar with what might be involved in a tarot reading. In fact tarot readers have been around for centuries and tarot cards were originally based on simple everyday playing card packs.
A tarot reader will usually have only one dedicated pack of cards that they become “linked” to. Only the tarot reader can connect with their pack and this enables them to make a reading. Anyone can buy a pack of tarot cards and many people throughout history have attempted to conduct tarot readings themselves. However, it is not just about the pack of cards but the gift that the tarot reader possesses. They must have extra sensory abilities and unique powers to connect with the past, present and future of the person having the reading.
Readings have not differed too much over time. A person will enter a reading and choose certain cards from a shuffled pack which they then turn over in sequence. The order of the cards, along with the psychic abilities of the tarot reader, will enable the messages and symbols to be conveyed. A person might come to a tarot reading full of questions, such as “will I ever marry?” “What will my career be?” “Should I get a divorce?” “Will I have children?” “How should I make more money?” and so on. Other people may enter a reading more open minded and be curious just to see what comes up from the tarot reader, these type of readings are often referred to as open readings.
Angel cards access the energies of angelic beings that want only to love, care for and protect humanity. Having infinite compassion for the human condition and acting in accordance with divine laws, these beings provide guidance and insight. The lessons the angels provide cover all aspects of human life, but center on spiritual advice. Angel messages provide encouragement, positive affirmations for whatever challenges you face.
With the emergence of the New Age Movement new designs for oracle cards emerged, among them angel cards. There a number of different decks, all operating from the same intent, but have different messages. Doreen Virtues Archangel Oracle cards pairs an angel with a concept, providing a commentary on each card. A second deck she authored, Healing With the Angels, does not focus on individual angels but in general guidance through symbols. Diane Cooper's Angel of Light cards combines guidance with affirmations to enlighten the querent. These are just a few angel decks available. Your reader will have chosen the set the cards of that work best for him or her in working with clients. The deck that is used is not more important than the message you receive.
