Archangel Azrael

I didn't get a chance to draw and post an oracle card yesterday for "Tuesday's Oracle", but I still wanted to draw an oracle card for the week! So here is "Tuesday's Oracle, on Wednesday!"

I decided to use the deck, "Archangel Oracle Cards" by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D. and see what Archangel is coming to me this week for advice. As always, this Archangel will have a message for others, not just me, and I trust that those who need to hear this message will be guided to it.

The card I drew today is Archangel Azrael; Counselor
The message on the card is, "You are a natural counselor, and many people benefit from your guidance and reassurance."

I have always been one of those people whose friends come to her for advice and comforting. I think this is a big part of my life purpose, and why I am so drawn to fields such as Tarot and Oracle card reading, astrology, and teaching. I love to help others and often it is in the form of advice and comforting or counseling others that I can help them.
Sometimes I doubt my abilities. Of course, it is human nature to doubt and fear our own abilities. I sometimes fear that the advice I give in a reading is wrong, or that I'm not saying the right thing to help or comfort a friend in need. I think I got this card because Archangel Azrael wants to reassure me that I am doing the right thing. As the card says, I am a natural counselor... I need to chase away these doubts and worries and just trust! Not only trust in myself, but trust that the messages I receive are divinely guided! I think this is a message that many people can relate to. In our life, there will ALWAYS be a time when we are called upon to be a counselor in some way or another. We will have times when our friends ask for advice, or just need someone to listen. There will be times when we need to comfort the living when someone they know has died, and times we need to counsel our children through rough patches of life. In any of these times you can call on the Archangel Azrael to help you be the best counselor you can be, and trust that what you say and do is Divinely Guided and comes from a place of pure Love.

Archangel Azrael is commonly known as The Angel of Death, though his name actually means "Whom God Helps", and he assists those who are helpers of others. Azrael is the angel who helps guide souls to God after death, and he can also help assist us in contacting our loved ones who have passed on. Azrael is the Archangel who watches over, guides, and helps Counselors - especially grief counselors, mediums, and many forms of people who offer guidance to others. Any time that you feel you are being called upon to counsel someone else, no matter how small the matter is, you can ask Azrael to give you guidance and compassion. Trust in yourself, with the help of God and Azrael, to be the best counselor that you can be to your friends and family - for it is in being able to help others that we find a greater connection with the Divine and our true purpose in life.

  1. Azrael is also known as a psychopomp and acts as a guide to the dead leading them into the afterlife. Similiar to Anubis <3
