Angel Cards – Your Questions Answered

I receive regular questions about my Guardian Angel Oracle cards, especially from those who want to learn more about the symbolism in the cards, and more advanced reading techniques.

Back in 2008, when these were first published, I wanted to create a set of pure Angel Cards, which are very distinct from Tarot and other forms of oracle cards. The words, interpretations and symbolism were Divinely given to me and then lovingly and beautifully rendered by artist Rene Milot. And with two further reprints in 2012 and 2018, and over 30,000 copies sold, they have proven to be incredibly popular.

So, I’m taking the opportunity to answer a few of the many questions I’ve received in this post.

Are Angel Cards like Tarot?

Angel cards are definitely NOT like Tarot. Tarot originated around the 14th Century and has roots in the occult and Kabbalah, possibly even as far back as ancient Eqypt.  With its complex ‘arcana’ and esoteric designs, the Tarot has long been associated with divination, but some people believe it carries negative connotations (although in the right hands Tarot is perfectly safe to use.)

Angel cards, however, are positive, uplifting reflections of the powerful divine energies of the angelic realms. They can be used by anyone who feels a spiritual connection, and the images, colours and symbols are easy to see and interpret. There is no negativity when using angel cards – only wisdom, love and compassion. When used correctly the cards can offer guidance and reassurance to those who are seeking it.

Why are there only four Archangels?

I believe there are many Angels and Archangels among the heavens, each with a unique energy. In my courses and workshops I use the seven of the most well known of these energies as a pathway to help readers connect with key aspects of their spiritual growth. But for the Guardian Angel Oracle, I wanted to keep the structure a little simpler, and so each suit is overlit by one of the four Great Archangels – Michael (for power and protection), Gabriel (for light and wisdom), Raphael (for knowledge and healing) and Uriel (for grace and peace).  These four cards help to add a further layer of power in any reading given and provide a focal point for the reader when drawn.

How should the cards be interpreted?

In the guide that comes with the cards, there is an interpretation for each card in the deck, and this is a great place to start with your card readings. But I would also urge you to spend time with the cards and come to know them better. Explore the colours, the landscape around each angel figure and the many symbols on each card – from clouds or birds in the sky, to objects held or attached to robes. Each has some significance which can add meaning to your readings. There are no right or wrong answers with these cards – give yourself time to reflect, and seek only positivity in your interpretations of the messages they offer.

I’m taking part in a unique online tele-summit event in September, being organised by Tori Hartman, which includes 19 card reading experts. She’ll be going behind the scenes to pull back the curtain and reveal how card deck creators, professional readers, and traditional publishers do what they do. This is a rare opportunity to learn from some of your favourite card reading professionals AND discover new ideas, tips, and ways to improve your own readings and maybe even step into a professional career.

A Guide To Reading Angel Cards & How To Incorporate Them Into Your Life

If you follow me on Instagram, you most likely know that I am very fond of Angel Cards & Crystals – anything mystical and high-powered through nature and the infinite unknown, will always catch my attention and I often feel very drawn to these types of practices.

It was my best girlfriend who really introduced me to angel-cards a few years ago, and now, not a week goes by where I haven’t pulled a card or done a spread at least a few times a week. I find myself gravitating towards asking the angels and spirits for guidance when I feel I need some clarity and understanding as to my circumstances around me, the feelings I’m currently experiencing or something completely third – the questions are completely up to yourself and no question is too much or little to ask the angels.

I think many people are intrigued by angel-cards, but don’t really know what to do with them, how to use them or even feel slightly torn as to whether they actually ‘work’ or not.. My answer to to this is; the more open and inquisitive you are towards the universe and the angels, the more space you’re allowing for the universe to give you answers and guidance.

You have to be receptive towards this practice. You have to dive within. You have to feel the moment, feel the connection to yourself and the question you’re wishing to find guidance for, for this to unfold its magic..


How To Read Angel Cards:

There are so many beautiful Angel Cards out there, but I suggest picking up a deck that you find yourself connecting to or are drawn to when ‘shopping’ around for one. You might feel extra drawn to the colours or the drawings. You might feel warmth in your fingers when picking a deck of cards up or your heart beating a little faster, stronger.

Choose a deck of cards that feel’s right for you, and don’t overanalyse it. Go with your intuition which is normally our first feeling, before we let our brains in on our decision.

Preparing Your Cards:

First, check your cards for any blank cards & remove those.

Then shuffle them delicately a few times whilst connecting with the question you want guidance with or an answer to.

Recite this question in your mind and make it clear to yourself and the angels what it is you need their help with.

Divide the deck of cards into 3 piles, then gather them again into one pile, knock the deck of cards 3 times with your right hand and then spread them out like a fan.

You’re now ready to pick your cards, depending on the spread you’d like to read.

1 Card Spread:

The most basic reading you can do, but a beautiful one to pull every single day if you just need a little guidance for your day ahead. Simply follow the above instructions under ‘Preparing your cards’ and then pull one card from the set of cards. Tune into your intuition and notice what this means to you and what you’re currently facing.

Three Card Spread:

1st card: Mind, Past, Background

2nd card: Body, Present, Problem

3rd card: Spirit, Future, Advice

5 Card Spread:

Card 1 (centre): Situation, Present

Card 2 (left of centre): Challenge, Past

Card 3 (right of centre): Guidance, Future

Card 4 (down of centre): Focus, Reason

Card 5 (up of centre): Outcome, Potential

Full Moon Spread:

1. Where are you in your life right now? (current)

2. How do you project yourself into the world? (truth, perception)

3. What is blocking your desires & goals? (stagnancy)

4. What do you need to do to overcome those obstacles? (acknowledgement)

5. What can you do within yourself to achieve your desires? (internal action/truth)

6. What can you learn from the outside world/others to help you manifest your goals & dreams? (seek)

7. The Projected Outcome (future)

There are so many spreads that can be done with angel cards, and you can’t really ‘operate’ them in a wrong way, as mostly you’ll be guided by your intuition and what’s true for you in that very moment.

Just remember; angel-cards are very powerful so don’t shrug them off or their messages. Angels are always among us to deliver us messages from the universe that we need to receive in order for our next step in this human-life.

How To Care For Your Angel Cards:

Don’t forget that angel-cards absorb all energies, spirits, thoughts and feelings. This means that you shouldn’t be lending out your deck to others, and if you do complete a reading for a friend or family member using your own cards, then remember to ‘cleanse’ them afterwards.

You can cleanse your deck of cards by sage’ing (smudging) them or using Palo Santo. You can also recite verbs or sayings that banishes all evil spirits or negative energies that may have found their way to your cards. Another great idea is to leave your cards out under the full moon when it’s high and mighty as the cards will be even more powerful and accurate when absorbing positive and forceful energy.

How To Incorporate Angel Cards Into Your Life:

As I mentioned before, angel-cards are, and can be, very powerful messages in your life. Trust your intuition when handling your cards and trust that your deck of cards are there to support you on your journey and helps spiral you towards your greater good.

When pulling your angel-cards make sure that you both look at the drawings on the card and also read the booklet where the card is described. Both angel-cards can have negative and positive connotations with a question, so it’s important for you to feel where this angel-card fits into your life currently.

But most of all, ENJOY engaging and connecting with your angels. It truly is such a profound and beautiful practice that can really help you towards your intentions, goals and dreams in this life.

Lots of love, Caroline xx
