#Fairy #Tarot #Friday ~ May 22, 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 different 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:

Ego – from the Major Arcana

The Ego card… Wow! This is the first time I’ve drawn this card. What are the faeries telling us? Well, for one, happiness will be elusive if you’re not clear on your own priorities, motivations, and behaviors.

The ego card also suggests that by taking the time for some self-reflection will allow you the opportunity to open your heart to experience great personal epiphanies and to practice self-forgiveness. Who doesn’t need a reality check once in a while?

LOUD and clear… see the truth of who you are.

Release what no longer serves you. Let go of the guilt, fear, and blame. Now is the time to feel compassion for yourself. You’re wonderful, you know!

The faeries suggest you look into the mirror and tell yourself:

I love you for being Divinely perfect in this moment.

Detox from harmful foods, substances, or people. Confront your fears and release yourself from any limitations or self-imposed traps. I know it’s hard to do, but once you embrace this fresh way of thinking, you will feel free for the first time in a long while. Breathe!

Do you feel the burden of the material side of life? Perhaps you’ve lost your job because of the coronavirus? If so, this isn’t your fault. Give yourself permission to free yourself from blame. Remember when one door closes, a window opens. Be creative. Dream of a new reality.

This lovely card portrays two faeries standing before a traditional Celtic Beltane Fire, a springtime sacred ceremony to release the old—that is, guilt, fear, blame, and other products of the ego—and welcome the new.

Today is also the new moon. Here is another reading that will help you find clarity on this date. Click the link below:

Additional meanings of this card: Determine what is the cause and what is the symptom. Self-examination. Placing too much importance on material items. Getting caught up in fear and worry. Dependency or addiction.

“Let Go,” Senryu

open up your heart
see the truth of who you are
let go of ego

  1. This is a perfect card for this moment in time… What better time to adjust our egos as we learn to let go and embrace a new way of being..
    Clearing toxins out of our bodies eating right foods… Releasing our fears and old ways of being as we let go of the old programs and re-invent the New World we wish to embrace..

    Perfect.. What a lovely deck of cards too Colleen.. Thank YOU for sharing… I have a few decks of Angel cards by Doreen and more than a few books of hers.. .. Though it did surprise me when I found out she has now renounced her former spiritual self and condemned her association with some of her books and teachings…
    I did wonder had she had a ‘Walk in’ As I always found her so lovely… Any thoughts?

    1. I’ve read the same thing about Ms. Doreen Virtue. My understanding is that she found Christianity, where the reading of the cards is frowned upon. Such a shame. She seemed to have a real connection to Spirit. She muddied the waters, I believe. ❤

          1. Exactly. The funny thing is, she changed her way of thinking, but the fruits of her “witchy” labor still remain for us to enjoy. I think we’re the winners in this situation. ❤

          2. Yes exactly Colleen. Which is why I said a ( walk in) comes to mind. A complete reversal of thought. Attitude and condemning her own work too.
            But yes we are the winners 😁🤗💖

  2. Perfect! I’ve gotten similar messages now x3. I’ve been working on shadows the last couple of weeks and this really resonates. It hasn’t been fun but I’m setting new perspectives tonight! I’m going to place that note in the mirror. I also think it’s a shame about Virtue… her light was needed with us… but I still enjoy her cards and books. Thank you for the reading! ✨ 🌟 💫

    1. It’s interesting how the universe seems to resonate with what we need to hear right now. Thanks so much for sharing your own experiences. I think the collective will miss Doreen’s light but her work lives on. We can still benefit. ❤️
