Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Archangel Power Tarot card deck, by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine: Archangel Uriel ~ The Emperor
The Emperor: “Stability and efficiency. Taking charge of a situation. Ambitious plans.”
“Leadership can change everything! This card may mean that it is time for you to be a leader to those around you. Or it might indicate that you would greatly benefit from the counsel of a skilled mentor who can give you invaluable advice. Archangel Uriel can provide you with brilliant new ideas on how best to be a success.
Creativity is a wonderful thing, but without logic, it can be chaos. What you need right now is a little organization and order. A few guidelines or rules will help bring your dreams to life in the most efficient and elegant way possible. This is not meant to limit you, but to help you feel empowered and in control of the direction your plans are taking you.
Additional meanings of this card: An encouraging and diplomatic leader. Ambitious plans. Stability. A promotion. Protection. Authority figures. Paternal role models.
Archangel Uriel is the angel of great ideas and epiphanies! His name means “the light of God,” and truly, he can help light your way to success. When you can not quite see your way clear to the next step, he is able to give you moments of revelation that seem to come out of nowhere. Ask Archangel Uriel for assistance whenever you have a project or challenge where a creative solution is called for.”*
From Archangels 101 by Doreen Virtue:
“Uriel is named in Christian Gnostic scripture, as well as in the apocryphal book 2 Esdras, wherein he teaches the prophet Ezra the meaning of esoteric information and the answers to metaphysical questions. This helped Ezra have meaningful conversations with God.
In the Book of Enoch, Uriel is one of the archangels who protected humankind from the Watchers (a group of fallen angels), including guiding the prophet Enoch, who later ascended into the archangel realm as Metatron.
Archangel Uriel is depicted in paintings and Christian theology as a cherub; and in my (Doreen Virtue’s) visions of him, he’s shorter and chubbier than the other archangels. As the “Light of God,” he often holds a lantern that emits pale yellow candlelight.
Uriel illuminates our minds with information, ideas, epiphanies, and insights. He reminds me of a wise old uncle in this way. He’s wonderful to call upon whenever you need a solution, such as at business meetings, when writing, while studying, or when taking a test. He will whisper correct and appropriate answers into your ear, which you will receive as words or thought s that are suddenly “downloaded” into your mind. After you ask Uriel for help, notice your thoughts. You can trust what you get as the right answer, directly from the archangel.
Archangel Uriel connects us to God’s infinite wisdom and assists us in focusing upon intellectual pursuits.”
Archangel Uriel is here to help you channel your creativity into amazing, tangible projects that will lead you to your utmost success. You have what it takes to give 100% of yourself in a unique way to the world through your passion; you just need some constructive direction to maximize the potential of what you have to offer. You know that you have a gift, and you may not have taken it seriously in the past, labeling it a hobby or pastime; but all that is about to change. Fear and doubt must fall away, leaving you with your raw talent and a strong belief in yourself.
Take some time to connect with Uriel; saying “Archangel Uriel, thank you for giving me information, ideas, and insight about my future, and how I can most successfully share my gifts with the world,” or Thank you Archangel Uriel, for helping me to focus my mind and receive all the knowledge, wisdom and understanding that I need to be successful in my future endeavours.” You can light a yellow candle, spend some time outside in the sunshine, or hold a citrine quartz. Be mindful and remain receptive to any thoughts or feelings that pop into your mind, especially the ones that are the missing piece to the puzzle of how you are going to most successfully share your gifts with the world.
