#Fairy #Tarot #Friday ~ February 28, 2020

Welcome to Fairy Tarot Friday. I’ve migrated this feature over from the Sisters of the Fey blog. Each Friday I’ll share a card from the Fairy Tarot deck by Doreen Virtue & Radleigh Valentine, featuring an uplifting message from the fey. I’ll also include a bit of syllabic poetry inspired by the card reading.

The Major Arcana contains 22 cards that describe major events and turning points in our lives (marriage, pregnancy, relationship and career changes, and overcoming personal challenges). The Major Arcana cards also represent the different phases from childhood to old age.

They number the Minor Arcana cards in four suits representing different aspects of human life: 1 (Ace) through 10, plus the four court cards (Princess, Prince, Queen, and King). The Minor Arcana reflects the day-to-day aspects of our lives and the people in them. Court cards represent either a situation or a person during a reading.

The Minor Arcana comprises four suits. In traditional Tarot they are; wands, cups, swords, and coins. In Fairy Tarot, the four suits reflect the seasons: Spring for wands, Summer for cups, Winter for swords, and Autumn for coins. In Angel Tarot, the seasons represent the four elements: fire = spring, water = summer, air = winter, and earth = autumn. Consider these elements in relation to the Fairy Tarot as well.

The divinatory meanings are given for upright cards only—this tarot is not intended for reversed readings.

Once you get to know the fairies, you’ll see they are strong-willed environmentalists. They get perturbed at people who mistrust animals or the earth. Never lie to a fairy. Instead, help them take care of the planet and other living beings. Do your part. Your actions will richly reward you, and the fairies will encourage you in amazing ways.

Today’s Card

With all the news around the world sounding the alarm about the spread of the coronavirus, I tried hard to block out all the chatter. After a long meditation, I drew the Princess of Autumn, an earth card.

This princess is optimistic and happy. She’s also charming, reliable, upbeat, and rather clever! Doesn’t this sound like you?

I bet you have a passion for learning. Guess what? You’re in good company. But don’t be fooled… a mischievous streak runs through this princess. Be on the lookout for that to manifest in your life, as well. Like you, this little fairy is a joy to be around. She’s also responsible and a wise soul.

The Princess of Autumn signifies that a part of you loves to learn, while some of you might assume the role of the perpetual student; too shy about getting out on her own. This princess has a tendency to think things through way too long before acting.

Never fear. When you finally make your move, everything will flow into place as planned. Do you need a push to get started? Maybe this is the message you’ve been waiting for so you can finally get past whatever has been holding you back.

Suddenly, the books or knowledge unavailable to you before are now wide open. Embrace any knowledge you’ve gained through rigorous study. You’ve done the hard work, now is the time to reap the rewards.

Maybe your message for the day is that it’s time to go back to school? Take advantage of any study and research opportunities. If you can, attend seminars or courses even if they are online. Be prepared for some good news about finances!

  1. Cool, Fairies Tarot Friday. What a fun and interesting way to end the week and start the weekend with a good message and thoughts.
    I’ve been curious about fairy tarot and wondered how it differed from regular. Thanks for sharing. I look forward to next Friday’s card. 🙂

  2. Did you draw this card for moi? I was born in Autumn and love Autumn! 😉

    While I haven’t quite started yet – I found a friend who will help me learn another language!

      1. I have a bunch of language books… but I don’t understand the pronunciation keys…(I was never an English Language major…)

        I just picked up a small Scotts Dictionary – the language of Burns (and fae?) for a buck at my Library Cafe… (and I’ve got a few on American Sign Language too…)

        From the Scotts Dictonary (random pull as it were): Kailyard or Kaleyard : a Kailyard is a vegitable patch or kitchen garden. (Good place for fae to reside??) Kailyard is also used to allude to a unrealistically sentimental and couthy picture of Scottish life similar to that which writers of Kailyard School are often accused of displaying (in italics…): ‘the delayed romanticism of tartanry and Kailyard. (OK what’s tartanry…:

        Tartanry is a derogatory term for the excessive use of tartan and other Scottish imagery to produce a distorted sentimental view of Scotland and its history: (in italics): a popular culture based on tartanry, Highland Games, and sentimentality.

  3. I’ve never tried tarot – doesn’t appeal to me especially – but I like the idea of being inspired with something, which it seems these cards can help a lot of people do. It’s an interesting post, and I’ll enjoy reading others!

    1. I’ve been working on my intuition and meditation. It helps to center me. I know an author who wrote an entire book by selecting a Rune stone to direct each chapter. It was one of the best books I’ve ever read. Is this science? No. But it’s a great way to learn to focus your energy in a few moments of mindfulness.

    That’s a great card. I have the fairy cards, too, but mine look a bit different, I think, I will have to compare. I like the last line about good financial news and good things coming after hard work. I agree we all needed a pisitive message!

          1. I never thought about it. It is more intuitively that I reach for those cards or for angel or other oracle cards. And sometimes I combine them. I would say the fairy energy is more centering and making you look at the moment while the energy of the angels is more guiding. Don’t know if that makes sense to you… lol

              1. So many wonderful tools everywhere, fitting the individuals and the individual needs of the individuals 😃

        I think my message disappeared as it was loading, so hopefully you don’t get two from me. Great message. Just what we all needed! I loved that last line, and things coming to us after hard work. I have the fairy cards, too. I will have to compare, I think mine are different. Thanks for the the good message for today.

        1. I think they are a few different decks. I think I read somewhere that Doreen Virtue has reverted back to Christianity and now shuns the Tarot. That could be why your deck is different. I like this particular one because it is so positive. We have plenty of things to cause us worry. We need inspiration! <3

Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
