Today I want to talk to you about one of the most spiritual tarots that exist: the Tarot of the Angels. For many people angels are nothing more than an invention, but for many others angels are beings of light to guide the life of men on Earth.
If you are among the latter you will know that the angels are among us, around us, awaiting a change in our consciousness that opens the door to the world in which they dwell. One way of contacting these angelic beings is through the Tarot of the Angels.
This deck will help you clear up any doubts you may have about the way forward. If you open your mind and heart to the Tarot of Angels you will be opening a way for these beings to enter your life to guard and guide you.
What Is The Difference Between Angel Cards And Tarot Cards
Unlike traditional tarots, the Angel Cards does not have its cards divided into Major and Minor Arcana, but rather they are divided into groups of angels or choirs, and although the cards of the Angel Cards usually have 78 cards you can find cards with 36, 54 and even 100 cards in the market.
Another difference of this tarot with the traditional tarot is that it is based on metaphysical concepts such as alchemy, esoteric symbols or numerology to, along with the intuition and experience of the taromante, advise the consultant the best way to solve their problem.
On the other hand, the Tarot of the Angels is based on the vibration that the spiritual guides give off when they are interrogated by the taromante. That is to say, the answer to a question posed to the Tarot of the Angels is given by the interaction of the energy of the consultant and that which emerges from the angels represented on the cards, in this case the card shooter is the way by which the response of the angels reaches the one who asks.
The division of the Tarot of the Angels is based on the organization of the Beings of Light in the spiritual world, so the deck is also divided into Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Domains, Virtues, Powers, Principalities, Archangels and Angels.
But add to all the previous angels, the fallen angels or negative angels at the command of which Lucifer himself is found.
These negative angels, known to some tarot scholars as extraterrestrial angels, are the ones who announce the bad news in the die rolls since the cards of the Angel Cards are only read from the right, they are not read inverted, so the negative meanings are not assigned to all cards when they appear in an inverted position if they are assigned to a specific group of cards. In the 78-card deck of the Angel Cards, negative angels are numbered from 67 to 78.
How to use the Tarot of the Angels
I have already mentioned that there are quite a few differences between the traditional tarot and the tarot that I am analyzing today, and one of them, I would say that almost the most important one, is that in order to get the cards out of this Tarot you don’t need much previous knowledge.
It is true that it is good to know what each card means but the only thing really indispensable is that you are able to connect with the beings of light that live around you. They are the ones who will guide the reading. How can you get that? Well, practice has a lot to do with it, but so does your willingness and previous preparation.
To use the Angel Cards and get the most out of it, the first thing you have to do is surround yourself with a calm and relaxed atmosphere. To concentrate and relax you can put on some music, or if you are a believer, you can pray some Christian prayer. When you already feel in connection with your spiritual side, you must take the cards in your hands and shuffle them to imbue them with your energy.
After energizing the cards, you should try to connect with your guide angel while mixing and shuffling the cards. Don’t worry if you don’t get connected to the first one, as you use this tarot you will see clearer which is your angel guide. In the meantime, you can ask for help from the spiritual being you trust.
If while you shuffle the cards, some of them escape from your hands, you should pay special attention to them as they are usually a message from the angels. You must stop shuffling when you feel that the moment has arrived, there is no stipulated time, and you must feel it yourself.
The first time you use the Angel Cards it is best to make a few card rolls, to try to focus on its meaning without feeling overwhelmed by a large number of cards. I recommend a roll of three cards, anyway, if you have a number of cards in mind that’s the one you have to draw and don’t worry, because you can’t go wrong.
So, after shuffling and connecting with your angel, ask the question you want the angels to answer and start placing the cards on the table, face up and starting from your left. The first card you place on your left will refer to the recent past; the card that represents your current situation and the ones you have as you are going through it.
The third letter will show you the future and will be in charge of giving you the advice that the angels have for you and will help you to cope with the situation for which you are consulting.
Don’t forget that, as in all mancias and divinatory arts, it is the context of the letters that helps you to understand what the angels want to transmit to you, since each of the letters has its own history that connects with your past, present and future.
