The Angel Reading Cards is a visual treat created by the Australian Psychic of the Year, Debbie Malone, along with artist Amalia I. Chitulescu. The artwork combines the ethereal, angelic realm with digital artistic realism. The set includes 36 cards and 93-page book (with a few extra pages for notes).
The deck and book set is housed in a sturdy cardboard box with a magnetic closure. The deck is seated is a silver plastic insert. The deck is held together by a plastic sleeve. There was a slight inky smell upon opening the box, but it soon disappeared. After removing the sleeve from the deck, it separated into chunks. It took a few minutes to get them all apart and counted to make sure that there were no more stuck together. Once all of the cards were separated, the deck itself became very slippery due to the shiny laminate.
The cards are fairly large, measuring in at 3 3/4" wide x 5 1/2" tall. The deck is a handful to riffle-bridge shuffle, but it fans nicely.
The images have a very narrow yellow-gold border. At to bottom of the card, you will find the card number and the name of the Angel in a banner. The card backs feature angelic wings set in luminescent orbs.
Don't expect to find Ariel, Gabriel, and Michael in this deck. The Angels that you will find in this deck are quite different, including Angels such as Bullying Prevention Angel, Chakra Balancing Angel, and Angel of Release. There are Angels here to help with any situation you might be facing.
The Angel of Strength shows a luminescent male Angel with gigantic outstretched wings, reaching out to help a barefoot man make his way up the face of a mountain.
This Angel makes his appearance when you might need to know that you are supported and serves as a reminder that you can achieve your goals.
Angel of Families has a lot going on in the image. We see a family with small children
playing "London Bridges" in a field filled with flowers and
butterflies, in the foreground, there are several white flowers
floating along. In the sky above them are several Angels watching
over them. There is a face in the clouds that appears to be an elder
in the family that
has passed on.
This Angel tells us that our family, whether alive or in spirit are protected and safe.
The companion book explains how to use the cards and contains 6 spreads for inspiration and guidance. There is a full-color image of each Angel Card in the book in order of their card number. Under the name of the Angel, you will find a key phrase. One the opposite page you will find a much longer interpretation along with an affirmation. This is a beautiful deck. The artwork is clear and easy to interpret. The book is well written. This deck would be perfect for daily draws for beginners all the way to the professional. If you are looking for guidance in your daily life or in a time of need, this might a set to consider.
