Oracle Outlook: Angel Card Reading for April 18-24, 2016

oracle outlook header-angel cardsA few weeks ago, I posted my first official Angel card reading in this space since becoming a Certified Angel Card Reader™. That reading was met with such a wonderfully positive response, and I want to thank you for your show of support and encouragement as I incorporate more of that work into my practice.

And, just as I did in that first Angel card reading, I’m using three decks for this week’s reading:

  • From the Archangel Oracle Cards, I’ll be pulling a card that will serve as the foundation for the reading; the Archangel on the card will be assisting us in working with the energies being presented.
  • From the Daily Guidance from Your Angels Oracle Cards, I’ll be pulling three cards that will serve as the cards for the week.
  • And from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards, I’ll pull a final card that will be offering us any last words and final advice for the week.

Taking each deck at a time in hand, I’m shuffling, asking Spirit and the Angels for the messages we need at this point in time to best assist us in moving through the upcoming week.

The video presentation of this week’s reading is below:

If you prefer to read the text, here it is for you:

For the foundation of the week, I pulled All is Well.

As I look at All is Well, my attention goes to the image with the swirling energy coming from the torches Archangel Jeremiel is holding. It carries the message that there’s a “swirl” of activity going on, that you may have a lot going on around you at this time.

For me, the energy of Archangel Jeremiel presents itself when it’s time to conduct a life review. This may be the week for you to take stock of your life, and examine the lessons you’ve learned from your personal history.

The reason for this review is that Archangel Jeremiel is a guide that appears when you’re embarking on the next chapter in your life. Conducting this review will help you make the choices and take the actions that are in alignment with this new lease on life you want to adopt.

Call on Archangel Jeremiel for guidance and assistance as you take inventory of your past and present actions and adjust your future plans accordingly.

And, as you take stock of your life, Archangel Jeremiel wants you to remember these words, which are printed on the card: Everything is happening exactly as it is supposed to, with hidden blessings you will soon understand.

Cards for the Week

Now I’m turning to the three cards I pulled for the reading. The first card will represent the beginning of the week; the second card the middle of the week; and the third card will round out the week.

For the beginning of the week, I pulled Life Purpose.

For me, this is a natural follow-up to All is Well, as I see Archangel Jeremiel’s energetic guidance around life review closely aligning with life purpose. Archangel Jeremiel’s words about the “hidden blessings” in your life experiences are restated, with Life Purpose, as saying that each and every experience in your life serves a purpose. You may not see it in the moment the experience is happening, but in time you could.

As I look at the card, I see four angels; two are engaged in prayer, while the other two are in contemplation. This says to me that prayer and meditation may be practices for you to engage in as part of your life review process this week.

Remember, I opened this reading stating the appearance of having a lot going on around you this week, so seeing the angels in prayer and contemplation suggests answers won’t come when you’re all over the place, but rather when you take the time (notice the hourglass and the clock behind the wise man’s head) to be still. It reminds me of the phrase in Christian scripture that says, “Be still and know.”

And since I mentioned a sacred text, which is a book, notice the man on the card engaged in the process of writing. This could be a suggestion to journal what you receive in your quiet moments of prayer and meditation.

If you journal, then consider the journal the book of your life. This could mean that it’s time for you to take a look at the previous entries you’ve recorded (re-view) to see what pops out at you now as a lesson that helps to inform you of the next chapter of your life. It may be time to turn the page, so to speak.

The combination of Archangel Jeremiel and Life Purpose can also indicate that you’re feeling it’s time to step more fully into your life purpose. If that’s true for you, consider calling on Archangel Michael, as he is the angel who assists in gaining clarity around life purpose, and can give you the next step to take on that path.

For the middle of the week, I pulled Relationship.

The focus of this card is on the relationship you have with yourself and with your Creator (however you language that for yourself).

The angel on the card rides a unicorn. The unicorn, being a horse, symbolizes progression, advancement, and moving forward. In the middle of the week, you’re being encouraged to take note of the strides you’ve been making in your life.

The other thing about the unicorn is that it’s a symbol of the “magic of life.” So, with regard to what I said about having so much going on, is that when there’s a lot of activity in your life and you’re constantly going, going, going, you can sometimes miss life’s little magical moments. Seeing the angel on the unicorn is like a message to not lose sight of the magic of life.

I also notice that the angel and the unicorn are facing the Life Purpose card, which tells me there’s a “Relationship” between the two cards.

life purpose + relationshipRelationship facing Life Purpose suggests taking energy in the present to reflect on the past, which repeats the message of conducting this life review.

It can also reinforce that prayer and meditation are some of the ways to honor, nurture, and cultivate your relationship with the Divine. As you connect more with the Divine in your life, you connect more with your sense of purpose.

This pairing could suggest that you could reconnect with an activity that you engaged in before, one that filled you with a sense of purpose and meaning. Life might have taken you on a detour, and the cards are suggesting the time has come to get back up on the horse, so to speak, and revisit that meaningful activity.

And, if that’s the case, also know that the detour served a purpose. What did you learn from that space in time that can now allow you to serve your purpose in a deeper way?

Notice the Signs, from the Daily Guidance from Your Angels Oracle Cards. Artwork is by Marius Michael-George.

Coming to the card for the end of the week, I pulled Notice the Signs.

The most obvious meaning of this card is that your Angels are always sending you signs and messages. When this card appears, I see it as a heads-up from the Angels to pay attention to who—and what—is showing up in your life—and when.

Those things that are showing up may very well hold the answers to your prayers.

This card reinforces what I said earlier; if you’re asking Spirit and the Angels for help and assistance, then, even though you’re living a busy life and got a lot going on, you’ve got to pay attention or you could miss a sign.

Notice the Signs could also suggest that if you take the time to cultivate a connection (Relationship) with Spirit and the Angels, you’ll begin to notice the ways in which the Divine and the angelic realm communicates with you specifically. The idea here is that, in a personal relationship, the communication is singular and unique to the person.

In their communications with the Angels, some people find feathers (like the angel on the card dropping a feather), which is a common way that I’ve heard angels send messages to people. Some people find coins, which is a message of abundance or some positive “change” coming. And some are given messages through numbers, seeing patterns and sequences of numbers in a recurring fashion.

As you take time this week to conduct your personal inventory, you might also discover the signs your Angels dropped on you in those previous experiences, as well as how they want to communicate with you now and going forward.

Final Advice from the Angels

Pulling the final advice card for this week’s reading from the Archangel Power Tarot, I have 2 of Ariel.

The first thing I want to say about this card is that it can mean that you’ve got a lot going on, that you’re juggling a lot, which brings things full circle, as this thought came out of All is Well.

With that, 2 of Ariel is about finding the balance. The suit of Ariel is about resources, so it could be suggesting for you to find the resources that will allow you to have more balance in your life.

2 of Ariel can also suggest, with the idea of taking stock and inventory of your life, that this is a time of change, fluctuation, and a shift in priorities. Things that you thought were important in the past may not be so much so now, and things you didn’t give any value to before are now becoming more important, and you want your life to reflect that shift.

2 of Ariel is a card of financial transactions, of money changing hands and being circulated. This can suggest a need to make a budget or spending plan, so you can see what comes in and goes out more clearly. 2 of Ariel can also come up to reflect dual incomes or having a couple of revenue streams.

Connecting this to the Life Purpose card, I’ve discovered that some people (myself included) associate life purpose with having a meaningful career that allows them to make good money as well. These are usually people who are doing spiritually-based work.

2 of Ariel, with Life Purpose, can suggest that it’s time to work on your purpose (spiritual work and career) as you work a “day job,” so you can build that spiritual work up. If you’re already doing this, then this might the week you get clear guidance on the steps to take and the resources you’ll need to start the process of transitioning into your spiritual work full-time.

And part of that will be to make that work a priority and see it as a valuable service to your world. It is serving a purpose, after all.

On that note, I’ll bring my work here to a close. I’m wishing you a wonderful week, full of many blessings!
