Anybody who has a strong connection to and affinity with gemstones will know the power these beautiful rocks hold and emanate. They have the power to heal and they have much wisdom to share. Wearing gemstones are supportive and nurturing. Another way to use gemstones to assist in your daily life is through their wisdom which has now been documented in The Archangels & Gemstone Guardian Cards by Margaret Ann Lembo.
Gemstones have a particular resonance with me. I love the colours, the textures and the overall vibrancy and healing that gemstones bring. I have a huge gemstone collection, mainly tumblestones, which I’ve acquired over the years – some of them well known, some of them rare and some of them lesser known. Since acquiring The Archangels & Gemstone Guardian Cards, my knowledge and awareness of gemstones has accelerated further and has opened up my internal database or knowledge base of Mother Earth’s gems. This deck of 44 oracle cards by Margaret Ann Lembo introduces the reader to a selection of gemstones, some of which one may already be aware of, others not. This is what initially stood out for me with this deck of cards – many gems to be found amongst this deck of gems, so to speak.
Margaret Ann Lembo connects to the gemstones, their healing energies, their wisdom and their purpose, and in that, offers practical and enlightening guidance for your day, in much the same way that tarot does. And an additional highlight of this deck is that Margaret Ann Lembo has connected the 44 gemstones to 11 archangels – each one of them associated with four different gemstones. As well as guidance from the gemstones themselves, the Archangels associated with the gemstone provide the reader with positive affirmations. The guidance of the gemstones and the transformational vibes that the Archangels offer will help support you throughout the day in making any positive change that you require.
Aesthetically The Archangels & Gemstone Guardian Cards is a delight to touch and the deck is pleasing to the eye as it endeavours to emulate the colours and vibrancy of gemstones. The card size is large, much like the U.S. Games Systems decks for those who are familiar with them, and have a laminated sheen to them. The deck is tastefully designed in various shades of purple, connecting to spiritual wisdom of the cards and the subjects that they are drawing upon – the gemstones and the Archangels, and feature bursts of white and yellow that represents and embraces light and wisdom. The cards feature large images of the gemstones and the typeface is also large, making it easier to read. This choice of large print also enables the reader to consciously read the affirmations, allowing the subconscious to absorb the learning.
The Archangels & Gemstone Guardian Cards come in a hard case made from strong cardboard making it easy to travel around with and keep in your bag. The cards are a delight to work with, whether you are an experienced reader or work with cards occasionally. They offer an introduction and valuable insight into gemstones as well as the Archangels, which in turn assists the reader to benefit from physically, spiritually, energetically, psychically and magically. The energy of these cards are upbeat, transformative and engaging.
If you decide to purchase this deck or if you receive this deck as a gift, The Archangels & Gemstone Guardian Cards is likely to encourage further exploration into some rarer or lesser known gemstones, some of which you may choose to acquire and work with in their physical form, which can support you in your life’s journey. When it comes to the Archangels, the transformational energies that the affirmations generate is likely to trigger within you or amplify the desire to give gratitude to the Archangels and the megaverse as a whole.
