Wow pathwalker!

This is actually a list of books I haven't read myself, or even looked into. I'm not big on the whole angels thing, and deepak chopra is not my cup of tea personally. So, I don't know, if you're interested in Angels, Doreen Virtue is the authority on them, and if you're wanting a little more on Goddesses I would suggest Kathy Jones or Jhenah Telydru.

I've read Doreen Virtue's Earth Angels book; I have it.

In my opinion it isn't really worth it; it pushes people into about four categories and lists a lot of really general stuff that applies to these people. While that is kind of interesting, very little information is actually offered about how these groups came to be, what they might mean, etc etc.

It is more a book that is designed to help you assign yourself to a group of "Earth Angels", not a book designed to give any information about them.


I also have a dream dictionary similar to the one listed here. I used to use it a lot but as I grew more aware of my own dreams and started working with them more often, I realized that a dictionary such as that has limited use and that interpreting symbols in your dreams as they relate to YOU, instead of to a book, is often more useful.

are there any books that could give me the right bits and pieces of information about angels, light workers,etc the tarot dictionary is probably the most sensible book out of everything on the list as i'd like try tarot but i need a book that explains what the card means in certain positions

You could probably find most of that information online for free; if you want to learn about the positions of cards in various types of spreads, try searching google for that type of spread.

For example, if you wanted to know more about the Celtic Cross spread, you could just google "celtic cross tarot" and you'll get several sites to that effect.

I would suggest, however, if you plan on using this method, that you READ SEVERAL SITES as many different sites have many different answers to the same questions.

For example the first link I clicked on about the celtic cross spread names the positions differently than I learned, but if I look at the second link they are different again. You need to LOOK AROUND and see what's common, to decide which out of these explanations can work for you.

This way you can research for yourself all the different spreads and all the many different ways that each position can be interpreted, finding ones that fit you best.


I highly doubt that any one book will have all the "right" answers in it; there are simply too many different ways to interpret the same thing, none of which are more right than any other.

I agree with that Luin,

In addition to that I tend to stay away from books on angels and instead just work with my own experiences, I don't want to read a book about another person's biased point of view just so that when things happen to me I have a point of reference and can determine whether it's more like author A or author B's description of angels. All I'm going to achieve is a booky response to angels instead of actually coming away with something from the experience.

You know there is such a thing as over analyzing.

Oral tradition sorry. I have never even heard of any of those authors. I have a friend whom is Wiccan and a light worker, and again she said something similar to what V posted above. The best way to learn about angels is to begin working with them. As far as cards go she uses the dolphin cards for readings, they are unique but are a lovely deck. And she usually uses a seven card spread. While I know the Celtic cross and other such layouts have been used for decades I think with the cards more is less. I usually use a five or three card spread. Then if you need any clarification on a particular point you can pull another card for that particular position.
