"Change & Transition" is the first card the angels have invited me to interpret today. Here we are invited to thank Archangel Azrael for "leading me safely through this change".
Archangel Azrael, whose name means "He who helps God", is the angel who guides us through the process of change and transition with his pheonix-like energy. He invites us to rise like a pheonix from the ashes, ovecome our challenges, and live in the energy of positivity and stength.
AA Azrael is depicted as a strong angel, but at the same time he is loving and supportive and wishes that we call on him for support and guidance when we're facing the confusion and fear that can often accompany change.
Behind him is a positive red hue; red being the colour of passion. So not only does it bring a warmth 'approachable' hue to AA Azrael but it also shows his passion for change and his passion for supporting us through change.
Every day we should be changing, because every day we should be learning and growing. Most change happens naturally but sometimes change can be challenging and it's at these times that we may need support.
The angel message suggests that you may be going through change right now that is difficult or challenging. Perhaps you feel you are being invited to change the way you behave, the way you think, the way you speak... things that you feel you have done the same throughout your life, things that feel natural and instinctual but which, when you look closer at them, do not fit with the person you are today. These can be some of the most challenging of changes but the angels are assuring you that the changes you feel pulled to make are for your highest good, and for the highest good of those around you. Don't fight the changes, rather relax into them in the knowledge that the angels are supporting you and guiding you. They've got your back. Don't be afraid what the changes will bring, have faith and trust that new and exciting doors are opening for you so let go and invite the opportunities and changes into your life.
