    Just was loaned a deck of angel cards from a friend, trying to learn how to use them for fun, but I have no idea at all as there are no instructions!
    Anyways do you think angel cards actually can give us any insight into things or do you think they are a scam?

      Thank you AEvans. I appreciate you letting me know that they are the same thing. I didn't know, but now do. smile

      As for the OP, are they truthful? In one way only- self full-filling.

    Angel cards are a divinity tool, similar to Tarot cards, but not the same. When you use the cards, ask for spiritual guidance, and what are you to learn from the cards presented to you. Do you have the book that explains the meaning for each card? If so pick 3 each representing the past present and future. Have fun with them. You can see where you have been, where you are now, and where you are going, and what needs to be learned from each card.

    Tarot cards are a difficult thing for most people to grasp. Some seem to think that they have real power or at least a spiritual essence. Others seem to believe that they are a novelty and are to be used only for fun. Having studied Tarot for some time now, I would have to say that making either assumption is not only misleading but also dangerous. The cards themselves have no real power and the only spiritual essence that is to be extracted is from yourself. The way you use the cards is the ritual in which you access that essence. If you simply lay out cards with something specific in mind you will not be able to read accurately. The cards are simply a pattern by which people can channel their own psychic energy.
    Therefore teaching one how to use them would be a thankless task. The only information one would find useful would be the first thing I tell all the people who ask me about it: you first must respect the cards. All I can say is if you are using them 'just for fun', it might be best not to use them at all.

    Angel Cards are sort of like tarot cards, but are pointed towards your spiritual life and growth.  I use mine several times a week and I have learned many things about myself that I would not have realized any other way.  They are not dangerous in any way and are not really aimed at telling your future, just learning about your spiritual self.

    I don't think they are.  If anything, angel cards are really nothing more than scams by phony psychics.  Don't get me wrong, I do believe that there are some real psychics out there, but most of the ones that read people's future for money are often just two bit con artists trying to trick people.

      Yes, you're right.

      I actually read the Kipper Cards (which are like Gypsy Cards) with a very simple system. The results can be amazing.

      You know, the cards themselves aren't really telling anything. It's the subconscious and a good deal of intuition working with the images on the cards. You'll only get good results if you accept that there's nothing really spiritual or magical about it.

      It's also important to see the person you're reading for, and to feel their presence - TV, telephone and online readings are impossible in my opinion - a con if the 'reader' is charging money for it.

        Yeah, that's true.  I don't disagree with any of your assessments. I think it's kind of sad that you have some people out there that will con others like that.

    I personally don't believe in them or the Tarot, but I have a good friend who does. It all seems rather vague to me, and most cards can be twisted to suit all kinds of situations, but if you enjoy it and feel you get something out of it, then go for it.

    Use your intuition with the Angel Cards - look at the images and see what comes up for you.

    There is nothing evil about them, they are a deck of cards with pictures on them - like a lot of things they can be used to tap into your creative unconscious or as part of meditation (pick a card and use the image while meditating)

    I use tarot cards and it is all good. It is not objects that are bad - it is how some people use them. The bible is an evil weapon in many people's hands, but you can't blame the bible for that.

    Honi soit qui mal y pense!

      Yes. There are many kinds of cards - you can even design your own. The main thing is that you can relate to their images. You can even use scat cards.

    Have them, use them, love and appreciate them.  They certainly are not for just anyone though.
