What Should you Know about a Free Angel Card Reading?
When it comes to your spirituality, you’re likely to find that some things are free while others cost, so what does that say about a free angel card reading? We’re going to explore what an angel card reading actually is, whether you should be wary of a free reading or embrace it wholeheartedly, and we’ll also walk you through how to perform your own reading.
Many of us are familiar with the saying, “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” There’s a notion within our society that anything that claims to be free, often comes at an unseen cost. The cost may be time, it may sacrifice quality, or it might be something else entirely.
Different Types of Divination Cards
Just in case you aren’t familiar with the concept of ‘angel cards’, we’ll take a moment to consider the various types of divination cards that exist.
A divination card, much like any other divination tool, is simply a conduit through which you can channel energy in order to focus your conscious and subconscious minds in order to learn information about yourself or your place in the universe.
The cards themselves aren’t responsible for providing answers or predicting the future, but they do allow us to access this ability. Most people are familiar with Tarot cards, but these are just one example of divination cards.
There are also moon cards, angel cards, oracle cards, I Ching cards, Brisca cards, and many more. Your Guardian Angel can help guide you towards this level of spiritual growth and knowledge!

There are many similarities and differences between these various types of card decks, but all of them serve one purpose: creating a story through which you can interpret energy and understand the hidden mechanisms of the universe.
Angel cards are unique in that they feature spiritual beings and religious figures, generally from the Judeo-Christian system of belief. However, there is no set deck (unlike Tarot cards), and the number of cards and the figures that feature on them can all vary drastically.
Archangels, such as Archangel Michael, regularly feature within angel decks, but you may also find phases of the moon, celestial bodies, constellations, energy types, or items or people of a more personal nature.
Should you be Wary of a Free Angel Card Reading?
When it comes to ‘free’ experiences, spirituality is a little different from other aspects of the material world. If a stranger offered you a free lunch, you’d have every reason to be wary. Just as you’d likely be suspicious if someone offered you a free car or a free laptop.
But when it comes to free reading, there are many, many reasons why such an experience could be free AND completely genuine.
- Anybody who genuinely wishes to improve their reading ability will need practice.
- Practicing with friends and family is perfectly acceptable, but it can often be difficult to keep your knowledge of their lives separate from whatever the cards are saying.
- That’s why reading a card for strangers is often the best way to practice, and so if somebody is offering you a free reading, there’s every possibility that they simply wish to gain experience with understanding the cards and tapping into their own intuition.
- There is a simpler reason why someone may offer you a card reading for free. Anybody involved in a spiritual practice has clearly become aware of their own spiritual journey.
Understanding the role that we play in this seemingly infinite universe comes with a desire to help others also discover their true calling. Spirituality can be an individual journey, but it also involves the connections between humanity as a whole and also to the world above, like Angel’s world.
It’s about raising humanity into a new plane of existence. As such, many people who are deeply involved with readings are simply wishing to offer guidance to those still trying to find their way.
Overall, if a reading seems to follow the standard steps and adheres to common practices, then there shouldn’t be any reason to be wary.
Performing a Reading for Yourself
Of course, there is another way of receiving a free reading: do it yourself. Reading your own cards is an incredibly common practice, and while many people worry that they aren’t skilled enough for such a step, it’s actually one of the best ways to practice.
Reading your own cards has zero consequences. You can read the cards for the day or for the week, see how everything pans out, and consider the aspects you got right and the aspects you misunderstood. It’s a learning experience where you are both the teacher and the student.
Just in case you are a beginner, we’re going to walk you through the process of carrying out a reading. This can be applied to most types of divination cards, including angel cards and Tarot cards.
Asking a Question and Shuffling the Cards
Before you can select cards or interpret their meaning, you need to focus your mind. The question or topic that you wish to understand on a deeper level through the cards needs to become the sole thought in your mind.
Many people will actually write their questions down, others will simply say it over and over again in their mind. The important thing is to understand that the answer to this question is your intention, and so channel your energy towards this goal.
Once you have the question in mind, you need to shuffle the deck. Shuffling may sound like a trivial step, but it’s actually incredibly important. Shuffling isn’t just bout mixing up the cards. It’s actually about transferring your energy onto each and every card in the deck.
In a sense, the question you have in mind is absorbed by your energy and applied to the cards, which allows your subconscious mind to remain aware of the outcomes and direct the seemingly random selection of cards during the next stage.
You can choose to shuffle the cards in whichever way you like. The simplest method is to lay the cards face down on the table and simply mix them all up with two hands.
Do this for as long as is necessary, and once you feel that you’ve definitely touched every card, simply move them back into a pile and you’re ready to go.
Picking the Right Spread
Now we need to select cards from the deck, but the number of cards you’re going to select, and where you’re going to place them, is something you’ll need to decide for yourself.
You ideally want to have this in mind before you begin the first step of the reading, but you can wait until you’re about to play the cards to decide. Sometimes you’ll notice a shift in energy and may feel like a 12-card spread may be more appropriate than a 3-card spread.
But what are the different types of spread and why do they matter?
The spread you choose effectively decides how detailed your reading is going to be:
- A 1-card spread is simple, but often provides a vague answer and leaves a lot more space for interpretation. This type of spread works better for simple questions, especially those of a yes/no variety.
- A 12-card spread is a more extreme example, and it is often used for readings that explore an entire year, allowing each card to represent a specific month i.e. the 1st card could be January, the 2nd would be February, etc.
- One of the most common spreads is known as the 3-card spread. It’s simple, yet still gives you plenty of direction while also allowing for a high level of interpretation.
However, this last spread does require a lot of active thought, as each of the cards can represent a different phase or aspect of life. For example, the three cards can represent the past, present, and future. But they could also represent the mind, body, and soul.
For some, the cards are attributed to the father, the son, and the holy spirit. You need to be aware that the cards could represent none of the groups, one of these groups, or all of these groups.
If you’re in doubt, follow your instincts!
Interpreting the Message
The final step of any reading is to explore the message that is being revealed to you by the cards. This is the step that worries many people, but it’s important to understand that you’re likely to make mistakes during your first few readings.
Some people will pick it up after just a few attempts, for others it will take much longer.
As we mentioned before, reading cards is a lot like reading a story. If we use the 3-card spread as an example and consider each card as being the past, the present, and the future, we can consider each card to also be a step in your journey.
The past card represents an event that has impacted your life in the present. This might be something that is holding you back or it might be something that has led to an opportunity.
The present card represents your situation as it stands right now. It’s where you are in life and can be indicative of the opportunities that are currently being presented to you. As you might imagine, the future card represents things that are yet to come.
This card can be tricky to understand though, as it can indicate things that will happen if you stay on your current path, but it may also indicate things that will only happen if you change your current path.
Through understanding the meaning of each card, we can begin to piece them together to understand an overall message. We can see the goal, how far you are away from it, and the problems that may be holding you back.
Consider the meaning of each card individually, but don’t forget to think about how each connects to the other cards in the spread as well.
