The Angel Intuition Deck is very positive and designed for use as both an Angel Healing deck and Tarot Deck. Although it is not directly connected to the major and minor arcana, it does comprise of 78 cards. These cards can be used to give a reading and can be placed in any of the suggested formations, which are the Single Card, the Three-Card Draw or the Celtic Cross.

The author is a Reiki Master and Colour Therapist and has dedicated his life to helping others. All of his artwork is channelled and brings a very positive message of hope and healing. His work is born from love, created in love and given in love.

I was thrilled to receive these cards to review. They come in a small, blue gift box with golden lettering. There are a few cards explaining the deck and how to use the cards and interpret the colours.

The cards are absolutely wonderful to look at and they resonate deeply within me. As an angel artist I truly appreciate the use of colours and shapes on these cards.

This is one of those decks where the cards really need to be looked at and meditated on to have their message come forward. When you use them in a reading you are encouraged to combine the key word with the meanings of the colours of the angel cards.

I have decided to do a three-card draw for all the readers of Paradigm Shift so you can look at them and have them speak to you! The three cards represent past, present and future.

To me this spread signifies that now is the time to reflect upon lessons from the past. Light Workers are encouraged to support each other and ask the angels for support in order to go into the future with an open heart filled with belief!

The author also provides a separate booklet to accompany the deck. It is called Inspirational Angels and is part autobiography and part help guide for using the card deck. It takes you through how Adrian was inspired to create the angels bringing messages of hope and positive thinking, together with affirmations and colour meanings. It was lovely to read about his journey and the meanings of the cards are very helpful. 

I would highly recommend surfing the website and enjoying the beautifully, inspired Angelic Art.

by Doreen VirtueArchangel Raphael Healing Cards

This deck comprises of an instruction booklet and 44 cards; each named for an aspect of health and wellbeing. Each card offers a short written prayer and is decorated with a different original full colour painting. Seven artists were commissioned to produce the original illustrations and prints of the paintings can be purchased from the artists’ websites.

Doreen Virtue holds University degrees in counselling psychology and facilitates angel workshops throughout the world. She also writes books about angels and ascended masters. This latest deck is her fourteenth card pack based on working intuitively with angels. It specialises in contacting the Archangel Raphael, whose name means ‘God heals’ or ‘he who heals’ and it concentrates on gaining insight into health issues.

The cards can be used for oneself or for someone else. It is suggested that the enquirer asks a question, shuffles the pack and chooses a card or cards (two simple card spreads are provided for beginners). The booklet is then used to provide more information about the symbolism and meaning of the selection.

The presentation box is high quality, the cards well made and finished on the edges in gold leaf. The caduceus design on the card backs is the ancient staff of Hermes and is an international healing symbol. I enjoyed working with these cards which offer positive thinking and uplifting messages and help awareness of minor health issues.

by Liz DeanThe Golden Tarot

Inspired by the beauty and mystery of the earliest tarot, the Visconti-Sforza, and the world renowned imagery of the Rider Waite deck, The Golden Tarot makes the perfect gift for the dedicated tarot reader or those new to this ancient art. Each of the 78 cards contains an exquisite, specially commissioned painting, while the 64 page illustrated book explains step-by-step how to lay them out for a reading.

I found this book to be concise and easy to understand as Liz Dean concentrates on the key words and meanings for each card, both upright and reversed. A brief explanation of the illustration itself is also given for each of the Major Arcana cards which, in one or two instances, gave me fresh insight into some of the not so obvious detail. Instructions are also included for the different layouts and what each card indicates in the layout.

A beautifully presented pack and one I, as a novice reader, will enjoy using.

These cards have been sitting in my kitchen for a few weeks now and all visitors, whether young or old, spiritually challenged or not, seem compelled to pick them up and try them. My young children love them also so I would say that they have a universal appeal. They are also proving to be startlingly accurate and easy to understand both for those just beginning to open to angelic wisdom and for those who have been aware for some time, so their messages work on many levels. The affirmations are simple yet effective and they have a light, soft energy radiating from them and look very beautiful as well.

The advice of the angels is always appreciated and such an easy accessible format to hear their wisdom is always appreciated.

This lovely pack of oracle cards seems to lift you out of the doldrums even before you think of choosing just one. They are bright and cheerful, and definitely don’t take themselves too seriously which in turn, encourages the user to do the same. There are 62 cards and a guidebook providing their meanings, all designed to re-connect you to your Divine Spirit and unlimited potential.

I have used other daily affirmation/meditation decks and also use runes, but I have to say that the energy of these cards is like a breath of fresh air and as a bonus, their message is usually spot-on whether I (my ego) like it or not!
