I’m not the biggest fan of Tarot but I have to say that I have always loved cards made by Doreen Virtue and this deck is no exception. I have always connected to Angel cards faster. The messages I get from doing angel cards are much more clearer and I pick up messages much more intuitively. Either way Angel cards have always been my thing plus when this deck came out I just knew it a good deck for me to work with. So here’s my thoughts on the Angel Tarot Deck.
Let me say I love the design of the cards. The artwork was absolutely beautiful. The size of the cards are a bit big which is her style anyways so for some people they may think its a bit hard to shuffle but I have quite a knack of shuffling cards so I didn’t find any difficulty doing the shuffling. Perhaps I am just used to shuffling all sizes of cards these days. On another note, I noticed the deck is more modern meaning some of the cards are renamed. For example, Cards like the fool is renamed The Dreamer, Death card is renamed Release and Devil is renamed the Ego are just of few of the cards renamed. Besides the renaming of the cards, I have noticed that these cards don’t have reserved meanings which i thought was very different but I tend to think of these cards more like a reading oracle cards. Since there are no reverse meanings in this deck, I find these cards more helpful on focusing on the positive when giving readings to people. Regardless of the news given during the readings it these cards help give it a positive spin on the readings which is what we need these days. There are people that tend to think reverse cards are consider negative but in all honesty, it is all how we interpret the cards meanings. Since there are people are a bit fearful of cards like the Devil , the Tower or Death cards as examples, these types cards are renamed and the definitions help you understand the positive meanings which is a brilliant idea in what Doreen cards. I have been playing with this deck for about a year now and I have to say that its one of my favorite decks.
One of the reasons I like Angel decks like these is because I seem to connect with angels and quick messages from the angels. With the tarot deck like this, I find that having a phrase on the bottom of the card really helps me tap into the message itself easier than a traditional tarot deck. For some reason these cards just radiate with positive energy and gives off this warm friendly vibe that i really enjoy. While this deck can work for specific questions, I find this deck excellent at giving general readings. I tend to stick to the Celtic cross spread and when my clients for a general reading, this is the deck I really go to every single time. Most of the clients find what I read of this deck is extremely accurate and find it also very healing at the same time. Another way I would suggest doing is give yourself a daily card. Each day pull out a call, you don’t even have to ask a question but if you want to ask a question I would recommend to ask the cards what is the message for the day. Take the time to write this in a note book whatever comes through the card. This is a great way for you to be more intuitive and whenever you look back at the messages you write ask yourself if it resonates with you. Most times I find this a very effective way to start learning how to doing a reading for myself. Not only is it informative but it also helps keep you motivated throughout the day. I encourage you to give these cards a try, you might like them. Please let me know you thoughts about this deck. Are they effective for you? Do you enjoy working with it? Leave your comments below
