In Angelic Tarot we work with a total of ten Archangels, the seven Archangels of traditional astrology and the three Archangels corresponding with the outer three Planets of our solar system. In the Western Mystery tradition, the ten Planets also correspond with a Tarot card each. When these cards show up in a Tarot reading, it is wonderful to know that we are supported by the particular Archangel associated with that Planet/Tarot card, no matter what our circumstances may be.
The Angelic Tarot prayers below cover most of the main areas in life that people come to us about for Tarot readings. Feel free to pass them along to your clients as well as use them for yourself when the need arises. You can always modify these prayers to better suit your needs – don’t be afraid to use your own words if that feels better!
I have included corresponding Yoga Poses because to do yoga is to pray with your body.
