Angel Cards

Reading the Angel Cards

Angel cards are information given right from the angels, and they are used to motivate people and provide inspiration.  There are more than 36 to 100 different cards in a pack, and most of them have pictures of angels.

These are not as scary as Tarot cards because they can be used without having to be trained in the cards.  Most packs have a booklet to give you information about what the cards mean and how to use them.

The cards can have inspirations or messages on the packs so that they can uplift you and give you positive meanings.  They are for people of all ages and are safe for children to use.  Even children as young as 2 can use these.  Some people like to say, “what did the angel tell you today,” and read the cards because they are positive.

Choosing A Pack

Angel cards are found in different bookstores, and sometimes you can find a big selection in some shops.  You might choose a pack based on the pictures at first.  Then, ask the cards a question and see if they speak to you.  Don’t worry if you don’t feel that the cards are personal to you; the images can give you an idea of how the cards work.

Don’t worry if you buy cards and don’t really like them.  You can also build your collection and get different cards.  Then, ask people to give them to you for gifts until you will find a pack that you love. It may take time to really connect with a pack, but do not get discouraged as the right cards will show themselves when it is time.

Proper Storage

You can store your cards anywhere, such as a basket or in boxes.  You can even buy special card bags to keep them safe or use a decorated wooden box to hold them in a special way.  Some packs are glittery and have wings, so you might want to show these packs off in a special area of display.


Once you get your angel cards, you need to look at all of them closely.  Practice shuffling the deck and read all of the instructions carefully.  Angel cards work when you draw a card and use your thoughts to guide the answers.  Then, use the booklet to figure out the messages and look at the picture for deeper explanations.

Reading the Cards

If you go to a psychic, you will see the reader set their cards out a certain way on the table.  You can do this if you choose, or there are other ways to read.

Some will cover their table with a nice tablecloth or a pretty fabric.  Some might add crystals to the reading table so that it will look nice or add stones that are tumbled.  Fresh flowers can be added to the table to give it a bright look, and figurines can also be added to represent your guides.  You can use your favorite animal or any material such as wood or glass figures to set the stage for yourself.

A candle can be used to brighten the table, and you can add a scent by using incense.  If you want a natural candle, you can add oil to the table to give it a nice scent.

Once you have your display ready, you can add the cards to the table.  Again, add as many packs as you want.  You can also put a dish out with more cards if you want to.

Angel cards work just as well when packs are mixed and the table design is totally up to you. This is why they are easier to work with when compared to Tarot.

The Cards

When people read the cards, they like to open them up first and stack them in piles.  After that, you can do a ritual if you want, like saying a prayer before you start.  Then, if you need healing, you can add a Reiki to your pack or use crystals for cleansing and instilling healing energies.

Using clear quartz increases the energy, and rose quartz can be used when reading about relationships.  Amethyst is a good stone that can make the reading better.  You will want to ask the angels to help you.


You need to mix the cards up and put the cards on the table in front of you.  Then, use your palms to shuffle the cards and select cards from the pack, taking half the pack and putting it from the front to the back.  You can do whatever feels right for you.

Select a card and then read the message.  Try to figure out what the message means when you read it.  If you are doing your own reading, look at the patterns on the table.  You can select a meaning for each card and read them when you turn them over one at a time.

A three-card past, present, and future reading is when the row moves away from you.  The card closest to you is the present card, and the one further away is the future.  Read the cards that represent the past and then read the one in the middle.  Finally, read the future card furthest away from you.

Two cards can serve as a daily reading where you can place two cards down on the table face down.  Then, ask a question and pull up the bottom card first to get the answer.

Using four cards can be a general reading.  Lay the cards out left to right, and the first represents love, the second family, the third your job, and the fourth money.  Ask questions or turn the card over to see the meaning and follow your instincts.

Keep the dish of cards on the table so you can look at a single card each time you go by it.  Then, if you are reading for someone else, ask them what the card means to them.

Record your readings in a journal, remember the date and time, and add notes following up. This makes it easy to recognize patterns, remember readings to check for accuracy, and keep track of your life path.

At the end of the readings, remember to thank your angels and make sure you blow out your candles.  You can pack away your reading table or leave it out.  You might want to add it to your display but make sure you do not get sloppy or let it get dusty.

The cards can be hard to use at first, but there is no real way to do it.  However, if you have good intentions and you want to look at the cards, you cannot go wrong.  Use the instructions to help you have ideas on the best way to use the cards.  You need to use them to give you enjoyment and peace only, not as the answers to specific or detailed questions. The angels will guide, but never tell you what has to happen. We make our own decisions.
