Review on Angel Tarot by Doreen Virtue

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

    yes there are so many different decks and different ways they interpret cards just have to go with the deck you click with the most… I love these cards and I am not one that likes to play with tarot either so its nice to double check my work with them.
