Throughout time, people of many cultures and religions have believed in angels. Now Beleta Greenaway brings you closer to these wonderful beings in this delightful guide. She shares some of her own experiences with angels and describes how you can make your own connections with them, whether through meditation, in dreams, using decks of special cards, or by other means.

Greenaway covers the entire angelic realm. Included here are:

  • Encounters with angels
  • Angels in the modern world
  • Angelic herbs and plants
  • How to work with angels
  • Angels, animals, and heaven
  • Angels in the Afterlife

This is for anyone who is interested in angels, who wants a little supernatural help, and/or who wants a glimpse of the vast array of other worldly forces and beings that inhabit the universe.

Focusing on the major arcana, or trumps, of the Marseilles Tarot, the aim of this book is to encourage the reader to experience the tarot in a direct, fresh, and uncluttered way.

Key points:

  • Focuses on the 22 trumps, or the major arcana of the tarot
  • Offers advice on how to study each card and find its unique significance
  • Provides instructions for laying out and reading the cards
  • Explores the tarot in terms of history, divination, symbolism, and esoteric traditions

This exploration of the major arcana includes “The Fool’s Mirror,” a new method for laying the cards out, as well as hints for using the tarot to gain deeper levels of awareness. Cherry Gilchrist offers ways to approach each card, absorb it, and understand its essence. Readers are encouraged to relate this essence to personal experience as the most enduring and rewarding way to prepare for reading the cards.
