Angel Card Readings
What are Angel Card Readings?

These are sessions conducted in-store with one of our talented Angel Empowerment Practitioners. They connect with your Guardian Angel Teams to deliver messages through the sense of sight, thought, feelings and knowing. You can ask questions or have your team share a general message that they would like you to hear at this time. The readings will usually cover areas like career, finances, relationships and what needs to change to move forward on your path/journey. They will encourage you to move through your “Stuff” that is stopping you from moving on in your journey in a gentle and loving way. 

Do they use any special tools? 

Our readers use a variety of Oracle and Tarot cards to help illustrate these messages for you and provide affirmations to help you on your spiritual journey. Each reader is unique in their process, you may encounter tools and techniques used as well to help clear up energy that needs shifting like cutting cords, or placing a shield. 

How long are the readings?

Readings are available in 15, 30 and 45min increments. 

Do I need an appointment? 

Pre-bookings are encouraged to hold you a spot in a timely manner, but walk-ins are welcome. (Readings are popular and walk-ins can be subject to a waiting period). Contact Us to book a reading.
