It’s a new week, and that means it’s also time for a new Oracle Outlook. This week, I’ll be doing an Angel card reading, which is a good thing, because, prior to getting set up for the reading, my angels were quite “chatty” with me about a card from one of the decks I use for these readings.
I took notes of the card, so that if it came up in the reading I would know exactly what to say about it.
Just as I’ve done in my previous Angel card readings, I’m continuing to use three decks:
- 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:
Foundation for the Week
For the foundation of the week, I pulled Leadership.
Leadership is a call for empowerment. The card asks you to assume a position that “lovingly guides others.” This reminds me of something I was told when I worked as a manager at my former place of employment: As a leader, I was to set the example for the associates who worked with me to follow.
I see the Leadership card as a request from the Angels to assist them in guiding and uplifting those around you—by empowering them. And the best way to empower others is to be sure you’re standing in your own power—setting the example.
Archangel Gabriel, the angel of communication, is depicted on the card. A trumpet, the symbol associated with Gabriel, is just within reach. Since it’s not in hand, this can be a “message” (Gabriel being the chief messenger angel) that not all communication is verbal; as a matter of fact, most communication is non-verbal. This says that effective leadership is not just what you say, but also what you do—and how you do it.
But that’s not to say that words aren’t needed. There may be a time and a place this week in which you’ll have to have important—and perhaps difficult—conversations. If that turns out to be the case, you might want to do what I do: I call on Archangel Gabriel to give me the right and perfect words, and to let those words be clear and easily understood. And if I’m on the receiving end, then I ask to be able to clearly and easily understand what’s being communicated to me.
Archangel Gabriel not holding the trumpet may also be carrying a message to speak for those who may not have a “voice” to speak for themselves–or who aren’t being heard.
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 Notice the Signs.
Notice the Signs comes up quite often in these readings, and it’s especially significant here, with the energy of Archangel Gabriel present, and “talking” about communication.
Notice the Signs talks about the channels of communication between you and your Angels. While you talk to your Angels, your Angels are communicating with you through non-verbal demonstrations (a reminder that most communications are non-verbal, as I mentioned above).
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 reminds you that if you’re asking Spirit and the Angels for help and assistance, then 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 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.
Another way you could receive a message this week from your Angels is through a dream. It was a dream that the Angels first appeared to me, with the message that they were around me, just a thought away. Archangel Gabriel, for me, is the “angel of the Lord” that would appear to people in Christian scripture offering a message about a dream they just had.
So, if you feel that you’re being given angelic guidance through a dream, call on Archangel Gabriel to help you understand the message clearly and easily.
For the middle of the week, I pulled Creative Project.
Here we have another nod to Archangel Gabriel, as Gabriel works with not only creative types (artists, musicians, writers, poets, etc.), but assists each of us with our individual form of creative self-expression.
So, Creative Project can be a message that a creative project will take center stage in the middle of the week. If this fits for you, your Angels want to work with you, offering you inspired ideas and trustworthy guidance for your creative endeavors.
As I look at the image, I see a woman creating beautiful music with her Angels of Creativity. This imagery, for me, carries the message that your Angels want to be “in tune” with you, creating a harmonious relationship with you. Music represents a higher vibrational frequency, and you may have heard the popular phrase about “raising your vibes,” which is what we have to do in order to connect with the angelic energies around us.
The musical aspect of the card brings in the energy of Archangel Sandalphon, the angel of music. I mentioned the higher vibrational frequency of music, and Archangel Sandalphon is associated with another activity that can raise vibrational frequency: prayer. Archangel Sandalphon lifts our prayers to heaven—to Spirit and the angels.
The music reference brings to mind that music is something that’s heard, and hearing is an action of receptivity. In your relationship with your angels, you have to be receptive to the answers to your prayers, which is a nice way to bring back in the first card, Notice the Signs, and its message.
You can call on Archangel Sandalphon for the faith needed for you to know and trust the signs from your angels are not only coming—but that you’ll see them when they arrive.
Coming to the card for the end of the week, I pulled Time to Go.
Time to Go carries the message of endings and beginnings. There may be a cycle or chapter of your life that is being completed so that the next chapter can begin.
Time to Go can be a literal message that it’s time to leave a certain situation, to put it behind you, to leave the past in the past. Time to Go can be about making a transition, empowering yourself to take charge of the situation and reclaim your life (again referring to the Leadership card).
If this rings true for you, you can call on Archangel Azrael, the angel associated with endings and transitions, to help you move through your process.
I notice that the angel in the image of Time to Go is facing—and racing toward—Creative Project, as if to say, “It’s time to get that creative project going.” This can suggest some progress being made with a creative endeavor, that it’s “speeding along” quite nicely. The angel holding a torch ties in nicely with the words on Creative Project about passion being reignited.
The pair of cards can be sending another message, connected to the ending aspect of Time to Go. The woman playing a harp on Creative Project can send a subtle message about “harping” on something, and then Time to Go follows up with the idea that’s it’s “time” to play a different tune. Harping is a form of complaining, which is low vibrational activity, and doesn’t do much to change the situation.
And, since Archangel Gabriel is here and communication has been mentioned throughout this reading, the message is to change the way you’re speaking about your experiences, as your words have power—and remember the Leadership card suggested empowerment. You can call on Archangel Gabriel for the right and perfect words you can use to reframe your experience, and therefore raise its vibrational frequency, uplifting yourself in the process.
Final Advice from the Angels
Pulling the final advice card for this week’s reading from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards, I have 4 of Gabriel.
Like Notice the Signs, this is another card that seems to appear quite often in these readings! A sign, perhaps?
I also notice that we have Archangel Gabriel being represented again at the end of the reading, just as he was at the beginning. Again, this is something that has happened before. It would seem that Archangel Gabriel is working closely with me as I present these readings.
And this is the message he brings with this card: Progress is being made, and to take time to celebrate that progress.
In the image, there’s a couple celebrating under a gazebo. This can mean that a particular relationship may reach an important stage or development, with the people involved preparing to move on to the next stage.
This could mean that a couple makes the decision to move in together (this is a card of co-habitation), to become engaged, or to move from being engaged to becoming spouses. 4 of Gabriel is an acknowledgement of the progression of the relationship and celebrating that.
The suit of Gabriel is associated with work and business, so this could pertain to a working partnership or team reaching a certain stage with a project and celebrating that achievement.
If we also consider the relationship you’re having with yourself, you might see some progress being made, in that you get to the stage where you “celebrate” you for being you. How wonderful!
If we look at this from the aspect of creative endeavors (remember Creative Project), a performance of some kind (being on stage is performing) is being applauded, and serving to further the artistry of the person (or people, if a collaborative process).
And with that, I think I’ll end this performance on that high note. Here’s wishing you a wonderful week, full of many blessings!
