The cards can be useful when you want clarity and messages of divine guidance about your past, present, and future. They can also help you get answers of divine guidance concerning your relationships, career, finances, health, and well-being. It’s easier than you think, so open your heart and believe that you can do it.
Why Use Angel Cards?
Angel cards are tools. You can have some fun with the cards and, at the same time, you can enhance your relationship with the angels as you learn more about them. Use the cards as educational tools to help you learn more about the different roles the angels play and how they can help you in your life. For those of you who have a hard time hearing messages of divine guidance on your own, the cards can provide the clarity you need.
Most of the cards on the marketplace have helpful words and images. Each deck usually comes with a book that gives a description and detailed information about each card along with a message of divine guidance.
Another term used for the angel decks is oracle cards. The common theme of oracle cards is the power of positive thought. They are similar to divinity tarot cards, but they do not portray any of the darker images like the traditional tarot deck.
Angel cards are very different than tarot cards. They can act as a guide just like tarot cards, but angel cards have no negativity and there is nothing to fear. Angel cards reflect the positive, loving, and encouraging messages of the angels. They are a wonderful tool and they can help you gain clarity about anything and everything in your life.
Choosing Your Angel Cards
Take time to shop for your angel cards. It’s very important to feel connected with your deck just as you want to feel connected with your angels. You can find angel decks at major bookstores, most new age shops, or shop online. Most stores will have open boxes so you can actually look at the decks. Pay attention to the images, the messages, and the feelings you get when you look at the cards. Trust that you will know and find the perfect deck for you.
You can also find some sites online where you have the option to choose an individual angel card or a series of angel cards by simply clicking on the featured deck. This is a great tool to get an idea of which decks resonate with you before you go out and purchase one.
The dream state can be a wonderful time in which you can go to school with the angels. While in this altered state of consciousness, the time is ideal to journey into different dimensions where the angels can guide you and teach you all that you need to know.
Finding the perfect deck of cards for you is an adventure. Be curious and explore your options. Once you’ve found your perfect deck you will be pleasantly surprised. You will have a valuable tool in your spiritual toolbox that enhances your ability to connect with the angelic realm so you can receive loving messages of divine guidance.
Getting to Know Your Deck
Once you’ve selected your deck, take some time to get familiar with the cards. They each have their own significance and meaning. The more you know and understand about the meaning of the cards, the easier they are to work with.
There are several ways you can get to know your deck. Here are some suggestions you can try:
- Read the entire booklet that comes with your deck describing each card and its significant meaning.
- Pick one card at a time and learn the meaning of that card.
- Pick a card and before you read the booklet, write to the angels and ask them for the message and meaning of each card. (After you’ve finished writing, you can always go back and see what the book says.)
- Pick a card and place it by your bedside or under your pillow. Ask the angels to teach you the meaning of the card during your dream state.
The more you play with your cards and discover the meaning of their messages, the clearer the lines of communication become. The angels can use the cards to get your attention and to provide you with the answers to your prayers. The results will be well worth the time you spent getting to know your deck.
Gaining Insight from the Cards
The angel cards can become a helpful tool to communicate with the angels. You can use the cards to receive insight and to ask questions about all aspects of your life: relationships, finances, health, emotional well-being, life purpose, career, and other everyday questions. When you pick your cards you may understand immediately what the cards are trying to tell you. At other times you may need to pause for reflection to gain a full perspective on the messages. The following are some of the possible insights that you may receive from your reading:
- The reading may reveal an immediate answer to a prayer.
- The reading may suggest that you need to make some changes in your life.
- The reading might initiate healing: physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.
- The reading might open your awareness so you can pay attention to the angels.
- The reading might provide you with the help and guidance you are seeking.
- The reading may give you direction or reveal steps to take that will lead you to the answer to your prayers.
- The reading may provide you with a feeling of peace, that you are right where you are meant to be and all is well.
Everyone has questions they would like answered. That’s why psychics are so popular and so many people go to see them. But what if you could go to the angels and receive their loving guidance through the use of the cards? You could ask your questions and you would feel a sense of peace that the cards were guiding you with supportive insight. Experiment with the cards and see for yourself how it feels. Seek to discover if this is a good tool for you to communicate with the angels.
Preparing for an Angel Reading
Any time you pick cards or do an angel reading you want to create your sacred space and set your intention. Invite the angels into your sacred space and ask them to help you through the use of the cards. They are happy to assist you in any way they can. You can use the following steps to prepare for your angel reading:
- Bring your journal or some paper to your sacred space.
- Play some peaceful or angelic music in the background.
- Close your eyes and always surround yourself with divine white light and protection.
- Invoke your angels and ask them to surround you in a beautiful circle of love, light, and healing. Take a few moments and breathe as one with the angels and their loving presence.
- Do a meditation that will raise your vibration so you can attune to their energy. (It does not have to be a long meditation; it’s all about intention.)
- When you are ready to do your reading, ask the angels to help you through the use of the cards. Ask them to guide you to the answers you are looking for.
Preparing for your angel reading sets intention and it clears your energy so you easily receive messages of divine guidance. Be open to receive your highest and best and know that the angels are right there with you, guiding you to the answers you are seeking.
Picking Angel Cards
Picking an angel card is a fun and insightful way to connect with your angels and to receive a message of divine guidance. You can pick an angel card to answer a specific question or you can just ask for guidance on what you need to know in that moment.
For example, “Dearest angels, what do I need to know today?” or you can ask a specific question. For example, “What do I need to know about_______?”
Take the follow steps to do a one-card reading:
- Remember, always ask your angels to surround you in divine white light and energy before you pick a card.
- Hold your deck of cards in your hands and say a prayer to receive a message that will guide you to your highest and best, better than you could ever imagine. (If you are asking a specific question, then state the question and ask that you be guided to the best card that will answer your question.)
- Spread your cards out on the table. Then breathe and ask your angels to help you pick the perfect card. You can always look at the cards and see which card jumps out at you or you can pass your hand slowly across the cards. Feel through the energy in your hands and notice where your hand is drawn to and then pick that card.
- After you select your card, you might have a clear meaning of what the card is telling you. If not, read the book that comes with the deck or ask the angels to help you understand what it means.
- Thank your angels and ask that they continue to guide you.
Enjoy your journey while working with your angel deck. Witness your connections deepen between yourself, God, and the angels, and allow the cards to guide you to the answer to your prayers.
It may seem as if the card you selected doesn’t have any significant meaning. If this happens, write down the card that you picked in your journal and stay in tune to the angels. Pay attention during the upcoming week. Most likely the card’s meaning will be revealed in the next couple of days or by the end of the week.
Reading for Past, Present, and Future
Now that you’ve learned how to pick an angel card and receive a message of divine guidance, you are ready to move on to experience a three-card angel reading. The intention of this reading is to receive insight and guidance about your past, present, and future. Most people want to know what their future holds, but it’s also important to realize how your past may still influence your present and the future. The greatest gift you can give yourself from this reading is to learn from the cards and allow them to give you the direction you need to live your best life in the present moment. Take these steps to do a reading to receive insight about your past, present, and future:
- Ask your angels to surround you in divine white light and energy before picking your cards.
- Hold your deck of cards in your hands and say a prayer asking to receive insight and guidance about your past, present, and future so you can be guided to your highest and best, better than you could ever imagine.
- Spread your cards out on the table. Then breathe and ask your angels to help you pick the perfect cards. The first card is about the past. Choose your card and place it face-side up. The second card is about something significant or something you need to know about your present life. Choose your card and place it to the right (it will be your middle card). The last card is about your future and this card gets placed to the right of your present card. All cards can be faced right-side up.

If some of your cards don’t make sense at the time of your reading, record your cards and review them at a later time. Trust that you will receive exactly what you need from your reading.
Each card shares a message or a story about what you need to know. The past card is very important. It shares information from your past that could help you heal or better your life in the present and the future. Your present card asks you to pay attention to what’s happening in your life right now. Your future card is sending you a message about an opportunity or a healing that might take place down the road.
It is always important to use discernment when doing a card reading. If the cards you pick don’t feel right or you really don’t understand the meaning of the cards, then reshuffle the cards and pray with the angels and ask for help in picking new cards.

Can You Do a Reading for Someone Else?
You can absolutely do an angel reading for someone else. It’s recommended that you do readings for yourself first and really get to know your cards. Practice is the key. Each time you do a reading for yourself you expand your knowledge about the angels and their messages. With experience you gain confidence. This is exactly what you need to best facilitate an angel reading for another. Take the following steps when facilitating a reading for another person:
- Explain what an angel reading is and how it can help them. Be sure to mention that the messages from the angels are always filled with positive thoughts, unconditional love, and encouragement.
- Ask for permission to hold her hands. Your hands are faced palms up, because you are facilitating the reading. Ask both of your angels to create a beautiful circle of love, light, healing, and protection around you. Then breathe one with the angels’ loving presence and relax and trust that they will guide you.
- Ask the person you are reading for to take a deep breath and as she exhales, ask her to let go of everything that happened before the reading (you do the same). Then ask her to take another breath and as she exhales, ask her to let go of everything that’s going to happen after her reading. Then together breathe in the present moment.
- Set the following intention either silently or with your partner: “Dearest angels, guide me so I can give a reading for (say the person’s name). Allow me to receive the guidance I need for her highest and best, better than she could ever imagine.”
- Release your hands. Then decide or ask her if she wants a one-card reading: a reading about past, present, and future; or a reading for the different aspects of her life.
- Have her shuffle the deck or you can shuffle it for her. Spread out the cards and guide her to choose the number of cards needed to do the reading.
- Take a few minutes and look at the cards. Ask the angels for help so you can share in their wisdom and guidance for the person you are doing a reading for. Listen, feel, and ask for the clarity you need. If it is helpful, use the book enclosed with your deck of cards for further insight.
- After you complete the reading ask the other person if she understands the messages shared. If she seems confused about certain cards or messages shared, ask her to be open to her angels’ guidance. Explain that she might not understand the meaning of the message now, but it is very possible that the clarity will come in the next couple of days or near future.
- Give thanks to the angels and ask them to continue to help and guide the person you did a reading for. Share and encourage her to be open to the miracles ahead of her and to pay attention to how the angels might be trying to get her attention.
It is important to remember that after you facilitate the reading you need to disconnect from the energy of the other person. Your intention was to help her during the angel reading and now you need to release her to the angels. Imagine yourself “unplugging” from her energy just like unplugging a lamp from electricity. Trust it’s in the highest and best of both of you to release and let go.
Another way to receive guidance from the cards is to look at the illustrations expressed on the card. It can provide you with some valuable insight that you might not find in the words written on the cards or in the book enclosed with the deck.
It can be very rewarding when you share the angels’ messages of love with another. Many people say that their life has been touched in a positive way after an angel reading. You will witness the other person experiencing a sense of peace and a knowing that she is never alone. The reading will reassure her that the angels are watching over her and are there to help her in any way they can.
You can use an angel reading to gain insight into all aspects of your life. The cards can be a fun and empowering tool to help you to receive messages of divine guidance. These messages can enlighten your life with more healing, joy, peace, and protection. Be open and practice using the angel cards so you can receive your personal miracles of divine inspiration.
