In a previous post, I shared that I’d been asking the Angels where we go from here, with here being my becoming a Certified Angel Card Reader™. In that post, I shared a card layout the Angels had recently given to me. I did a reading using that layout, and the emphasis was to write about my experiences with them.
One of those writing experiences is keeping a daily journal of my personal readings. After waking, I pull my personal cards for the day, and write down my initial thoughts, feelings, and impressions. At the end of the day, I return to the journal for reflection on my day, and record any events that corresponded to the cards pulled.
Recently, one morning I pulled King of Michael, from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards (by Doreen Virtue, Radleigh Valentine, and Jeff Bedrick; published by Hay House).
As I looked at the card and started to write what was coming to me in the moment, I could feel the Angels coming in with an intuitive prompt: I was suddenly feeling the need to pull out my copy of the Archangel Oracle Cards (also by Virtue and published by Hay House), and to work with the two decks together.
The Angels, in the moment, made me feel it would be a nice way to get to know them better and to establish a deeper connection with them, which was hinted at in that previous reading I mentioned earlier.
So, getting out the two decks, and using my Heaven and Earth Spread, which consists of two rows of three cards (for a total of six cards), I asked the Archangels, “What messages do you have for me about working with these two decks in this manner?”
These are the cards that came up in the reading: All is Well, Healthy Lifestyle, and Peace (top row, Archangel Oracle); Change Your Life, 10 of Ariel, and 9 of Ariel (bottom row, Archangel Power Tarot).
When I read with multiple card decks, I read the columns rather than the rows. In this particular case, the top card would highlight a particular Archangel, while the bottom card might suggest how to apply the information from that Archangel.
The first card in the reading is All is Well, featuring Archangel Jeremiel. I have a little chuckle when I see it; while shuffling the cards, I saw the card New Beginnings, from the Archangel Power Tarot, in my mind. The card has Archangel Jeremiel pictured on it. That card, New Beginnings, talks about adopting a new lease on life, and being called to take a particular course of action.
As I look at All is Well, my attention goes to the image with the swirling energy coming from the torch Jeremiel is holding. The words, “Give it a whirl” come to my mind, which I take as the message of working with the two decks to connect with the Archangels more.
My eyes then fall to the text, and I see, “Everything is happening exactly as it is supposed to, with hidden blessings you will soon understand.”
Archangel Jeremiel is letting me know that he is assisting me with ushering in this change, this “new beginning.”
The card below All is Well, Change Your Life, is a Major Arcana card; Major Arcana cards suggest important issues and events, so the Archangels are telling me developing this deeper connection with them is important to them.
This card is traditionally known as The Tower, and, for me, can be a card of sudden insight and revelation.
In my mind, I “hear” the words, “Let’s shake things up,” as I consider The Tower to be a card of dramatic shake-ups. Shake-ups can happen when we’ve become complacent with a certain situation—or, as printed on the card, when we procrastinate taking a particular course of action.
And speaking of words printed on the card, it also reads, “Embrace the opportunities that change brings.”
Archangel Chamuel is pictured on the card, sitting and looking at the tower in the distance. I look at the nimbus of light around his head, and the city lights, and get the sense that I’ll be “seeing things in a new light.”
The top card in the next column is Healthy Lifestyle, featuring Archangel Raphael. My strongest connection to Raphael comes with The Lovers card of the Tarot, which he is pictured on. The Lovers is my Tarot Birth Card, so I believe Raphael has been connected with me since my birth.
Looking at the card, I take the references to health to mean well-being. So, establishing a deeper connection with the Archangels, in this way, is for my well-being.
The words “exercise regularly” jump out, so I get the sense to work with them, through these cards decks, on a regular basis.
And, going back to The Lovers card, Archangel Raphael is known for helping to make the perfect connection in relationships. So, he’s making me feel he wants to serve in that capacity here.
The scene, taking place in Paris, brings to mind that Paris is called “the city of light,” because of its leading role during the Age of Enlightenment. In Change Your Life, there are lights about the tower, and the card can indicate sudden “enlightenment.”
I also remember that Paris is also called “the city of love,” which is another nod to both Raphael and The Lovers card.
I look at the women sitting in front of the café, having a conversation. With Archangel Ariel, the angel of material resources, ruling this card, I see this as saying to use these resources (the card decks) as a way to have conversations with the Archangels.
Moving to the top card in the last column, Peace, the first thing I notice is that it’s a card connected to Archangel Chamuel, the angel on Change Your Life. He is the first of the Archangels to appear more than once.
Chamuel is the angel associated with universal and inner peace. I most often work with Chamuel when I’m looking for something, as I refer to him as my “finding angel.”
So, my takeaway with this card is that I’ll be finding a sense of inner peace as a result of connecting more with the Archangels.
I also see Chamuel being connected to Jeremiel (All is Well), in that Chamuel may set the stage for me to find those “hidden blessings” indicated by Jeremiel.
The final card in the reading is 9 of Ariel. In addition to Chamuel, Archangel Ariel appears more than once. So, the idea of working with the Archangels through the decks (resource) is being repeated.
The 9 is a number of attainment, and this card can suggest a material “gain,” so there will be something gained from doing this work to make the connection with the Archangels. It doesn’t hurt that the card, in part, reads, “Hard work leads to great success.”
For me, 9 of Ariel is a card that can highlight teaching, training, and instruction, so I’m feeling that the Archangels are going to be teaching me and training me for something to possibly come in the future. If that is the case, I also feel it’s important for me to follow their instructions when given. Being open and receptive makes the connection stronger.
I look at the image and see the woman riding the unicorn, with the rainbow overhead. The woman riding the unicorn suggests progress in the future, and seeing the magic (the unicorn) happen as a result.
The rainbow, for me, is a representative of all the angels (each one emits a different color) working in tandem with me—and accompanying me on this journey. We’re in this together.
With 9 of Ariel as the final card, it can indicate a possible time period of 9 months. So, it will be interesting to see how things develop and progress within that time frame.
I’ll keep you posted…
