#Fairy #Tarot #Friday ~ May 8, 2020

Welcome to Fairy Tarot Friday. 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.

Doreen Virtue numbered the Minor Arcana cards to comprise four suits representing unique aspects of human life. They number the Minor Arcana cards 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: The Prince of Winter

Hello, my faery friends. Happy Friday! Today, I’ve chosen the Prince of Winter who moves with swiftness of a flash of light! Look in the left-hand corner of the photo. After I snapped this photo, I noticed the light reflection from my lamp. I took this as another sign that our faery friend wanted us to pay attention!

The Prince of Winter is a change card. The last time he appeared in one of my readings was on January 31, 2020. This was the day the United Kingdom formally withdrew from the European Union (Brexit). So, look for some earth shattering events on the horizon.

As a court card from the Minor Arcana, it represents either a situation or a person. On a personal level, this fairy prince asks us to prepare for a big change that we’ve been waiting a long while to happen. This could be the moment in your life when everything aligns at the right time and place as the universe offers you the chance to move forward on your path and welcome your destiny. Don’t let this moment slip away!

This little prince’s mind moves at warp speed, which means we’ve got to be ready for the change he brings when it happens. Carpe diem!

In more general terms, our world is changing at an exponential rate because of the coronavirus’ advancement around the world. What we once thought of as normal is long gone. Yet, many countries are loosening their rules about wearing masks and social distancing.

Perhaps this little faery is warning us to be more assertive and direct by asking ourselves the hard questions. He might suggest that it’s time to take a direct approach while being quick-witted and intellectual—we need to use our intelligence to determine if it’s safe to go without masks and practice social distancing.

Maybe we should slow down and reflect on what we know to be the truth. Trust the scientists and not the politicians. Do what is safe for you and your family.

Are you a risk taker like the Prince of Winter? Remember to take care because he is idealistic, decisive, focused, and determined. At that same time, he’s also impulsive and undiplomatic. He loves the thrill of the ride, but is he watching where he is going? He could set himself up for a fall, and that could be disastrous.

Does this sound like anyone you know?

The additional meaning of this card are: Believing strongly in your mission, fighting for justice. Experiencing sudden or unexpected changes. Intellectual solutions to problems.

“Carpe Diem,” #Shadorma

Embrace changes—
focus on your truth
ask questions
contemplate—
the gifts the universe grants
providence awaits

    1. The change is our awakening to world events. I can see companies allowing more work from home employees. We’re still in dangerous times with our economy but if we embrace the change, we will survive. Don’t fight it, go with the flow and let it evolve naturally. ❤

    1. That would be amazing! Let’s all look for the positive in the change. We’re all becoming more aware and embracing the change. Look how our families have grown closer by cooking and spending time together. I love that kind of change. We all need more of it. ❤

  2. I was working for justice in my dreams this morning. I remembered how bloggers took a stand with Tygpress. and for whatever reason, I saw bloggers do this again for upcoming world and political issues. Thank you for this card! It just seemed to go with my mind state this morning.

    1. I remember that! Many of my posts were found on that site. We are all looking for some sort of justice right now. Just when I think our government can’t get any more disfunctional, it does. We are all stuck in a dystopian novel that leaves us no choices. Our lives are at stake. However, if we do what we know is right, we will come out of this. The change is our awakening and that seeking out of justice. Have a fabulous day. ❤

  3. I think this little faery is doing his best to warn us. As restrictions have eased and people are gathering in numbers again, I’m afraid we are going to see some dire consequences. But, I’m doing all I can do to keep myself and my family safe! Thank you for sharing, Colleen!

    1. Thanks so much, Jan. I agree with you. Here in Arizona we’re technically on lock down but many places are opening up. The numbers of deaths and new cases continues to rise. Today, we went well over 10,500 cases. I think they are opening too early. Only time will tell. Stay safe and take care of your family. That’s what I’m doing as well. ❤

  5. Thanks for this. So appropriate for these days. I pulled a rune yesterday and it was the rune Uruz – the rune for strength. “With every test of your strength, new strengths are born, as in natures´s cycle of perpetual renewal.” Be strong my dear. xo

    1. I love my Rune stones, as well, Darlene. Uruz and strength is so perfect for right now. Although, I am seeing a lot of good coming from the changes in our lives. The main thing is to stay positive. I know you do. You uplift us all. ❤
