There must be something with me and the month of December, when it comes to dreams about divination.
You may recall that, in December of 2014, I had a dream that led me to begin my study of Lenormand, after having been a student and reader of Tarot for, at that time, 16 years.
Well, in December of 2015, right before the first-year anniversary of my relationship with Lenormand, I started have a lot of divination dreams.
Surprisingly, none of them were about the Lenormand, which would make sense as I was approaching this first-year milestone (and was very excited about it). And, again, surprisingly, none of them were about Tarot.
What were they about? Reading angel oracle cards.
Now, this was a surprise. Because of my like for angels (Would it surprise you if I told you I had a very interesting dream about them once?), I had attempted to dabble with reading angel oracle cards in the past, having a few decks in my collection. But I just couldn’t get into them.
I use this analogy to make the point: Back in the day, when I was in school, I loved algebra. I mean, loved it. As Carla Hall from “The Chew” would say, it was my “jam.”
Then, I had to take geometry. And I began to not like math so much. Until, I got past both geometry and trigonometry, and moved on the college algebra. Then the love returned.
Well, it was the same with Tarot and oracle cards; Tarot was like algebra, and oracle cards were like geometry. I’ve heard it said that those who like algebra dislike geometry, and vice versa. Too true, in my case.
So, imagine my surprise, when I had this dream early in the month of December:
I’m doing an Angel card reading. The deck that I’m using has lush, vibrant images with deep colors. The cards that appear in the reading make me think of cards from the Tarot.
And that was it, short and sweet. I woke up feeling like I had seen the cards somewhere before, that the backs of the cards were familiar, but I couldn’t place it. The Tarot reference made sense, as I had all of the Tarot decks Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine have created at the time of the dream.
After writing the dream in my journal, I went online to see if I could find any images close to what I could recall from the dream reading. And I did. The card backs that were in the dream were identical to the card backs of Doreen Virtue’s Archangel Michael Oracle Cards.
Archangel Michael is said to be the angel who gives us clarity about our life purpose and provide us with the next action step in a given situation.
It also turns out the image on the card backs is also on one of the cards. The name of the card? Make a Commitment. Seriously.
Right after this, I check my e-mail to find a message from Hay House, the publisher of Virtue’s decks. It’s about the upcoming Certified Angel Card Reader™ course being offered. I open the e-mail. Reading it, I discover the course is on sale.
My head is buzzing again, as I type this, just like it did then (which is an intuitive sensation I have experienced for many years, letting me know I’m on to something).
But, even with that, I decided to think about it, and “sleep on it.”
Well, all I can say is that Archangel Michael really wanted to press the issue, because the next morning, during the hypnagogic stage between dreaming and waking, I had a vision that led to my doing a Tarot reading that led me to signing up for the course.
Archangel Michael must’ve been pleased, because I kept having more dreams about reading the cards after starting the course.
I’m sharing the story, because if you’ve been eagle-eyed, you would have noticed that every Tarot reading I posted throughout December was with either the Archangel Power Tarot Cards or the Fairy Tarot Cards, my two favorite Virtue-Valentine decks.
And, as I dropped the news in my last post, I recently graduated from the course and became a Certified Angel Card Reader™!
And just like I’ve done with Lenormand, in the future, you’ll most likely be seeing angel card postings in this space.
Aside from that, I’m letting the Angels lead the way on this one…
