The 22 major arcana

These cards generally reveal important or decisive events in life. They can also indicate the life path to follow as well as all the steps to take before reaching the goal. In general, the major arcana are cards illustrated by angels and they symbolize their benefits.

The 56 minor arcana

These cards highlight ordinary events that occur in everyday life. They are numbered and those with the numbers 11 to 14 are illustrated by a knight, a queen or a king. When they appear in a spread, they often refer to a particular person or situation.

Ask your question correctly

You then need to think about the question to ask and if possible, it should be very specific. It can concern work, love life, finances or even a particular situation such as a change of life.

Shuffle the cards and draw

Now you can shuffle the Angel cards while focusing on the question at hand. You don't have to stop until you feel some connection with them. After shuffling the cards, it's time to draw. Two methods are available and the choice must be made according to your objective.

If the idea is to know the energy of the day, that is, to get advice on how to face the day, it is enough to draw a single card. On the other hand, to obtain the answer to a specific question, it is essential to draw three cards. They must be arranged in order of drawing with the faces visible.

The first card should be on the left side and it reveals the immediate past that relates to the question asked. The second, the middle one, contains the advice emanating from the angels. Finally, the last card, the one on the right, highlights the near future or the outcome of the situation if you have followed the guide carefully.

You must take the time to carefully study the message conveyed by each card in order to be able to properly interpret the angel tarot deck. Of course, you should also rely on your intuition.

Thank your guardian angel

To end the session, we must thank the angel for his kindness and his guide. This can be done with a simple gesture. First, open your heart and close your eyes. Then, say thank you sincerely to your guardian angel. All that remains is to think positively about your future and believe in the guide you have received.
