How to Do an Angel Card Reading

Would you like to be able to do Angel Card Readings? They can be amazingly accurate and give us comforting guidance when we need it the most. We all have within us the capability to read the cards - all we have to do is believe in ourselves and our ability to communicate with our Angels. If you would like to tap into your own abilities and do Angel Card Readings yourself, simply follow the steps below.

    Types of Angel Card decks. There are numerous decks available by various Angel Card Authors, and they can be bought from bookshops, new age/spiritual shops - also by mail order on-line. Some decks have the full Angelic messages on the cards, others have a short message and a guidebook which expands on the full meaning.

    Choose a deck which you are naturally drawn to - which ones do your instincts tell you are right for you? If buying from a local shop ask the owner if they have open decks that you can look at and get a feel for. If purchasing on line see if there are images of samples of some of the cards - also testimonials from those who have purchased the cards already. Any good on-line outlet will have a contact form in order that you can ask questions if you want to.

    Getting to know and attuning to your Angel Cards. Some Angel Card decks come with a guidebook including instructions on how to approach this - such as Cards that come with an "Attuning to and working with your Angel Cards" document. The following wording is taken from there and can apply to any set of cards that you may have purchased, so please follow the steps below:

    “Play” with the cards – read them, shuffle them, fan them out, spread them out on a table or on the floor – whatever you feel that you want to do. All of these actions energise the cards and tune them in to your own vibrations – familiarizing yourself in this way will enable you to connect to the cards with both your conscious and sub-conscious self.

    Carrying out Readings.
    • Still your mind, hold the cards to your heart and ask the Angels to communicate clearly through the cards.
    • When doing a Reading for yourself, simply ask your Angels to either answer your given question or to just tell you that which they want you to know by guiding you to choose the relevant cards..
    • When doing a Reading for someone else, dedicate the cards to whomever you are doing the Reading for. You will most likely find your own words, but you could try something simple such as “I dedicate these cards to ******* (here you can also give their date of birth, location and any other details that you want to), please, Angels, help me to give them a true and accurate reading that will help and guide them in the best possible way that we can”. You can say this silently to yourself if you wish.
    • Shuffle the Angel Cards until you feel guided to stop and then choose the first card that your instinct takes you to. You may like to choose just one card or continue to do a three card spread in the same way. Whatever feels right for you will be absolutely right with your Angels.
    • Study the messages on each card. You may wish to absorb or pass on the exact wording that the creator of the cards has written for each card, or you may want to put your own interpretation into the meaning, depending on how confident you are. Please trust your intuition when reading your messages, your first instincts will invariably be the right ones. If the Reading is for someone else, ask them to do the same - trust their instincts when absorbing the messages you are passing to them.


  • Always do the readings in a quiet room or place, away from any other distractions
  • Have faith in your ability to choose the right card(s) when doing a Reading. If it helps, remind yourself that your Angels are your guiding hand and that they are ultimately the ones who are choosing the cards for you.
  • Sometimes a card will fly from the pack whilst you shuffle, or simply stick out. Always pay extra attention to these cards as they are special messages from the Angels
  • Always remember to say “thank-you” to your Angels after every Reading.
  • The most important thing is that you get pleasure from using your cards – enjoy!
