Angel cards are filled with inspirational and uplifting messages from your celestial guides and are a much easier entry point into card reading than tarot, as anyone can pick them up and read the meanings and messages.
If you are looking for guidance or reassurance, then angel cards are a great way to connect with your guardian angels, as well as the Ascended Masters, fairies, goddesses, and any collective considered spiritually evolved to the same level as angels and receive messages from them.
Without further ado, here is our guide to the best angel card decks out there and everything you need to know when buying yours.

Angel card FAQs
How do angel cards work?
Angel cards work by drawing guidance and intuitive thoughts from the angels. The guidebook your deck comes with will help you understand the messages, but with practice, you will find you pick up your own messages from the cards. The pictures may also suggest a different meaning to you than the explanation in the book, so go with your instinct and gut feeling first.
How do you read angel cards?
When doing a reading for yourself, ask your angels to answer a question you have in mind or offer you guidance by choosing the relevant cards. If you are doing a reading for someone else, dedicate the cards to whomever you are doing the reading for by asking the angels to use the cards as their link to whoever you are with.
