Angel Tarot Cards

“Tarot is a divination tool that dates back to the 14th century, and possibly to ancient Egypt. The second t in tarot is silent, so the word is pronounced “tair [rhymes with hair] oh.” Interestingly, in North America, the first syllable of the word is emphasized, whereas in other regions, it’s the second syllable. Tarot has touched the lives of countless individuals, giving them peace, comfort, and insight in times of joy as well as in times of challenge. It’s one of the most accurate ways to receive detailed guidance about your future and answers to your questions. Consulting tarot cards is like spending time with a dear wise relative who acknowledges both the shadows and the joys of life. However, many people are put off or frightened by the traditional images and phrases in tarot. The Angel Tarot Cards were created to preserve the ancient divination methods, while using only positive, gentle, and life-affirming words and pictures. Angel Tarot Cards retain the full scope of human emotions and experiences from traditional tarot, but reinterpret the fear-based images and words to enlighten, rather than to frighten, those who use the cards. The reinterpretation brings new and vibrant symbolism that may be unfamiliar to experienced tarot practitioners. However, whether you’re new to tarot or well versed in it, you’ll find that the messages in this deck are uplifting, refreshing, and accurate.

Tarot was originally two sets of cards, the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. (Arcana is the plural of arcanum, meaning a deep or profound secret or mystery.) The two sets were later combined into the now-traditional 78 cards.

The Major Arcana consists of 22 cards that describe major events and turning points in our lives (such as marriage, pregnancy, relationship and career changes, and overcoming personal challenges). The Major Arcana can also represent the different phases from childhood to old age. The Minor Arcana represents more ordinary day-to-day life events and are divided into four suits or elements: fire, water, air, and earth. The Minor Arcana cards are numbered 1 (Ace) through 10, plus the court cards—a Page (card 11), a Knight (card 12), a Queen (card 13), and a King (card 14)—for each suit.

In the Angel Tarot Card Deck each Major Arcana card features one of the 15 principal archangels. (A few archangels appear on more than one card, as they embody aspects of several cards.) These archangels provide strong protection and clear guidance as you travel along your spiritual path. The Major Arcana cards can also be mixed in with your other angel oracle decks to provide additional details in your readings. The Minor Arcana consists of four suits or elements. Angel Tarot represent’s the earth element with paintings of fairies, air with unicorns, water with mermaids, and fire with friendly dragons. (air is traditionally represented by swords in tarot,  Angel Tarot replaces the weapons with the gentler one of unicorns whose horns are sword-like.) Court cards can represent either a situation or a person during a reading. When the reading shows the influence of another person in your life (such as a lover), Pages and Queens represent females (or feminine men), and Knights and Kings represent males (or masculine women).

The cards in this deck are rich with symbolism and imagery, and the illustrations also provide answers and messages. Notice where your attention is drawn within each card’s painting, as the illustration can hold equally important messages. Reversed or upside-down cards mean that you especially need to focus upon the issue connected to that particular card. Reversals can also mean that the energy around that particular card’s meaning is beginning to lessen.

On a historical note, the Major Arcana was originally created with Justice as the 8th card and Strength as the 11th card. However, at the turn of the 20th century, Arthur Edward Waite flipped the cards’ positions when he created his famous Rider-Waite deck. They have been restored to their original positions in the Angel Tarot Cards.”

Autumn 2013

aries1  (March 20 – April 19)

This season is a time of Spiritual transformation for you, Aries.  It is time for you to move on from that which no longer serves your Higher Self. Be thankful for the knowledge, experience and lessons and let go. Surround yourself with higher vibrational frequencies which will enable you to grow, learn, and prosper — come into your own.  A situation or phase is coming to its end.  Allow yourself the release of this energy, as you are being protected and guided through this experience.

taurus2 (April 19 – May 20)

A sense of renewal and introspection surrounds you over the next few months. Review and evaluate — there is a favorable assessment of the facts. Clear out the “clutter” that is within and around you and create the space for energy to flow.  It is time to move in a new direction, with this change comes opportunity and new experiences.  You are being assisted in speaking your truth, lovingly.

gemini2 (May 20 – June 21)

With the change of season comes great inner strength. Listen to your intuition where guidance is needed. Utilize this strength and inner-knowledge to connect with others on a different level. Your natural abilities and experience will assist with both yours and their own healing process. This is a time to release harsh judgments that you are holding onto — against yourself or others. Forgiveness and compassion allow you to see the forest through the trees, even as the leaves fall to the ground.

 cancer2(June 21 – July 22)

Thoughtful, Creative, Warm, Sensible. Remember to make time for those around you. You have much to give, whether to family, friends, or those less fortunate. Handle any challenges with understanding and warmth; but also with confidence, resourcefulness, and a sensible approach. Being in tune with your surroundings enables you to be open to receiving — listen to your intuitive feelings.

leo2 (July 22 – August 22)

Lavish abundance surrounds you, Leo. Your creativity and hard work are bringing you great rewards. It is an opportune time to give birth to your dreams — your creative endeavors will be successful. Nurture your Self by spending time in nature and taking care of your body with massage, yoga, or anything else that makes you feel healthy and vibrant.  Your spiritual power brings great blessings.

virgo2 (August 22 – September 22)

A mentality of lack is creating a “lack” reality, through the Law of Attraction. Let go of the fears surrounding money. It’s time to reassess your thoughts, the words you use, and your beliefs about money. Recognize and accept the assistance that is being offered. Matters will improve. It is important that you care for your physical and emotional health during this time — honor and respect your deep emotional sensitivity.

libra2 (Sept 22 – October 23)

An exciting new opportunity comes your way, embrace this new endeavor!  It may seem like a challenge, but it’s one you’re ready for. Outgoing, creative, and passionate about life— utilize your originality and ingenuity. Believe in yourself.  You have a strong bond with nature and your life purpose involves helping Mother Earth.

scorpio2(October 23 – November 22)

Wise beyond your years and wanting to do something more challenging — there is a possibility for a new area of study or returning to school at this time.  Your plans move successfully forward at a steady pace. Good news about financial matters is coming soon. It is time to let go of behaviors that are blocking you from your heart’s desire.

 sagittarius2 (November 22 – December 21)

A new person or emotion-rousing situation enters your life. It could be the beginning of a new friendship or romance, or the renewal of one from your past. A current relationship may enter a new phase. Your intuition may also be heightened during this time. Let go of fear-based energy from you — your surroundings, this situation, and everyone involved.

capricorn2 (December 21 – January 20)

The fruits of your labors continue to grow, and harvest is imminent. Patience is key — you may feel you have far to go, but don’t forget how far you’ve already come. Review and acknowledge your progress from a broader perspective. This is a good time to rest or vacation to recharge and revitalize. Be open to teaching and learning; attending and giving speeches is part of your spiritual path and purpose.

aquarius2  (January 20 – February 19)

You’ve completed something of great importance; enjoy your feelings of wholeness and completion. You’ve grown spiritually and have evolved to a whole new level in your understanding of the Universe. You’re now ready to move on to something new. There is the possibility of a new house or job at this time. Use your natural abilities to attract your desired outcome — the Power of Manifestation.

pisces2  (February 19- March 20)

Abundance and financial security are at hand. You’ve established a lasting foundation of success in business. With this success come feelings of freedom. You draw great comfort from those around you and your family life is strong, secure, and peaceful during this time.  Remember to have and show appreciation for the little things in life. The energy of crystals supports you and helps you with your present situation.

 Fire

IMG_20130810_123537_820-1Aries, Leo, Sagittarius ~ Sun, Mars, Jupiter

Ideas, Inspiration

 Dragons

The Suit of Fire (Red) represents our ideas and inspirations. It’s where we feel passion, display amazing creativity, and set our dreams into motion. The fire element reflects our career, art, adventure, risk-taking, and self-development. Fire can also represent any of your passions. Dragons are the symbol for the Suit of Fire, because of their fiery nature and their iconic place in our imaginations.

In a traditional Tarot deck Fire is represented as the Wand set and in the Angel Tarot deck, the element of Fire is represented by Dragons, the cards are labeled as “Six of Fire”, “Seven of Fire” and so forth. Picture the “fire” breathing image of a Dragon as well as the Chinese Astrology depiction of the Dragon behavior. Fire is action oriented.

Water

IMG_20130810_122824_018-1Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces ~ Moon, Venus, Neptune, Pluto

Emotions

 Mermaids

 The Suit of Water (Turquoise) represents the depth of our emotions. It’s where we fall in love, nurture our children, and open our hearts to deep feelings. The water cards represent love, romance, relationships, family, dreams, and desires. The suit of water also represents the depths of our intuitive and psychic gifts. The beautiful and watery realm of Mermaids and Mermen represent the Suit of Water, because of these creatures’ ability to plunge deep into the hidden worlds of the emotions and the unconscious.

 Water is represented by using Mermaids as the star of this part within the set. In a traditional Tarot it would be known as “Cups”, here its been changed to “Water”: “Seven of Water”, “Eight of Water” etc. The visions of the Mermaids in blue sparkling water associate with emotions, feeling and needs. The Mermaids dive into the depths of water or in this case assists us with getting to the core of an issue internally in order to manifest our desires.

—Air

IMG_20130810_122111_625-1Gemini, Libra, Aquarius ~ Mercury, Venus, Uranus

Intellect

 Pegasus, Unicorn

The Suit of Air (Blue) represents our intellect. It’s where we make decisions, analyze situations, and give voice to our thoughts. The suit of air represents justice, truth, ideals, the legal system, communication and other intellectual areas. As fear and worry generally live in the mind, the suit of air can also involve struggles and concerns in our lives. To represent the Suit of Air, Unicorns were chosen because of their tranquil essence and symbolize peaceful thoughts.

 As for the Sword set in a traditional Tarot which would be the element of ‘Air’, in Angel Tarot it is represented by Unicorns. “Five of Air”, “Six of Air” etc. Imagine a Unicorns horn as a symbol of the Sword. Unicorns are airy and whimsical just like the element of Air which also represents thought and mental processes.

 ~

Earth

IMG_20130810_121832_671-1Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn ~ Venus, Saturn, Mercury

Material world, objects, issues

 Fairies

 The Suit of Earth (Green) represents the material world, in which we deal with making a living, caring for our bodies, and looking after mother earth. Aspects of our lives represented by this suit include money, work, home, security, health, resources, education, society, and the environment. For the Earth Suit, the realm of Fairies were chosen because of their magical manifesting abilities and their close connection to our planet, Earth.

The Pentacles reside in the Earth element in a traditional Tarot, but in the Angel Tarot deck the images are of Fairies in garden like atmospheres, “Three of Earth”, “Four of Earth”. etc. Fairies are outside in nature and assist us with concrete needs such as finances, home and sometimes obtaining love.

Spirit
