There are many reasons to move forward at this time in your life. Old ways of living are changing and being left behind. New perspectives are slowly taking root for the betterment of each of us. This month, Archangel Michael, who is our protector, and Archangel Raphael, who sees to our health on all levels, share their wisdom. These cards come from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue, PhD and Radleigh Valentine.

Three of Michael: Release the past. You will grow from [these] situation[s]. Time heals all wounds.

Michael reminds you that he is always available for your protection when you call on him for help. Many events in life can be difficult and even traumatic. When you live in the past, those events are replayed over and over in different ways, but for the same purpose. Each one is a lesson. That lesson teaches you how to become a better version of yourself. Each lesson learned helps you to grow. Archangel Michael can keep you safe while you do. He will guide you to make good choices for yourself.

Love yourself deeply enough that you will learn your lessons. They are for your benefit as you live this earthly life. If you say you don’t love yourself, it’s time to do some inner work, like meditation, to discover how beautiful you really are. Let the past go. It is no longer a reality. In distancing yourself from the past, you can work to gain a more positive perspective of life here in the present. This is the only time you actually have, so make it a time to move forward. Be brave with Michael’s help.

Three of Raphael: Reasons to celebrate! A community of friends. Happy announcements regarding relationships or children.

Archangel Raphael’s color is green, the color of the heart chakra. He will help you in any way you need for healing and loving. Remember, the more you heal, the more you can love yourself and others. With this card, Raphael addresses your outside world, to a great extent your relationships with others. He encourages you to honor those relationships. This means having a strong support system of friends and family who will be there when you need them and they need you. If you do not have this support, work to heal and strengthen them. As you learn this life lesson, you will find Raphael will help you live more and more from the heart.

As you do that, your bonds with others will strengthen. This is because high vibration in a person is very attractive. You may find that as your relationships deepen, many positive possibilities will appear. This could mean commitment with a partner, or even include children in your life. The important thing to remember is the more internal work you do for yourself reflects in your outside world with others. If you haven’t started yet, it’s time to move forward in this part of your life.

Four of Raphael: Seek out other possibilities. Look for the magic in life. Be aware of your own emotions.

With this card, Raphael is addressing your inner world; that is, who you are as a person on this planet right now. If there are areas of your life that are holding your back, he says, seek out other possibilities. How much do you love and appreciate yourself? Have you even asked that question? Sometimes, you may form an opinion of yourself that comes from another, such as a parent, or friends, or even religion or society. It is difficult to love yourself when someone important is telling you you’re not lovable. However, that does not mean you can’t change this opinion. You always have a choice.

This ties in with Michael’s message. When you hold on to how others looked at you in the past, either positive or negative, it takes your power from you. It’s up to you, in the present, to live your life the way you want to, regardless of others’ desires. It may not be easy, but it is very satisfying. Life can become magical when you are living it the way you want.


How do you know you’re living your life to the best of your ability? The answer is to be aware of your emotions. Your emotions are the part of you that guides. They can be an important barometer to how life is unfolding for you. So the first step in navigating your magical path is to understand how you are feeling emotionally.

All positive emotions, such as joy, peace, happiness, satisfaction, bliss, and others, tell you you’re on the right path. Regardless of your path, regardless of what others say about it, if you truly feel positive, keep going as long as you do no harm to yourself or others. When you are feeling negative emotions, that is a signal to stop and evaluate where you are. Those negative emotions, despair, anger, anxiety, fear, frustration, resentment, and so forth, cause you to feel badly. They are a sign that you are not taking care of yourself. So pay attention to your emotions. They can make a difference between living an amazing life and one that holds you back. Remember, it’s time to move forward, so take care of yourself.

In conclusion, the Archangels lovingly wish the best for you. You can do that by leaving the past behind, forming strong relationships that are beneficial to all, and knowing, as well as loving yourself. In A Course In Miracles, it is said, ‘Love is not the answer. It is the assignment.’ No one said life would be easy, but when you do the work, life can be magical. Adonai
