The first impression of an angel card deck might not be that different from a tarot card deck but the differences are many in fact. Tarot cards have their basis in metaphysical concepts like numerology and alchemy etc. for furnishing humans with useful information. On the other hand, angel cards are used to collect information through the etheric realms, the art of which can only be learned from experts like the angel healers. The angel card reading is the result of the interaction between a seeker and the angel’s response to that seeking.
Angel cards are said to have their origin in oracle cards which were popular with gypsies. The oracle cards comprised of symbolic pictures which possessed precise meanings. While the origination of the oracle cards is uncertain, it is said without a doubt that these cards were very popular in France during the nineteenth century. In fact it is said that Marie Anne Adelaide used to be so famous at that time that she used to dazzle the affluent and the powerful with her finest skills with these oracle cards. That’s why the deck bearing her name is still considered the most popular card deck today.

His duties include the spreading of peace among human beings even when the times are turbulent, as the angel is the symbol of universal peace.

Gabriel and Michael are the only two archangels mentioned in the Bible. Gabriel is mentioned in the Old Testament as helping Daniel in understanding his visions. The New Testament also mentions Gabriel as the angel who makes the announcement of two great forthcoming births, Jesus Christ and John the Baptist. According to scriptures, Archangel Gabriel is considered as the supreme messenger of God.
The archangel Gabriel has mostly been shown as feminine in the art portraits. That’s why Gabriel is mostly associated with communication and birth etc.
The angel Gabriel is said to work very closely with Mother Mary to take care of sensitive children. The archangel is deeply involved with the children’s welfare because the angel cares a great deal about them, which is why the angel even guides the adults who want to help their little ones. Therefore, in the matters of children, always ask Gabriel for help.
Besides, the archangel also helps other earthly figures like artists, teachers and actors etc. The angel helps people to ace their skills in various departments. Gabriel also creates opportunities so you could work in the career of your own choosing.
The archangel Azrael is generally known as the angel of death because he helps people in leaving this physical realm to enter the spiritual one. He also assists people to adjust to the new realm after they have left the physical realm for good. He assists through bringing divine love and healing through materials that were helpful in healing on the earth. He especially helps those people who are shattered by grief due to any lasting incident or loss; he comforts their souls and brings peace in their grief stricken hearts. Also, the figures like nurses, spiritual teachers and counselors etc. get help from him because they also assist those who are coping with grief.
The angel also relays messages from heaven to the earth in order to make the loved ones communicate with their God. He makes the communication better by bringing clarity between this world and the spiritual world.
