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: Nine of Autumn
Woo HOO! It time to reward yourself for all your hard work and achievements. It appears you’ve accomplished a great deal this week. You deserve a little relaxation, nurturing, and peace. Take a deep breath and let it all out. Doesn’t that feel good?
Do you feel a sense of accomplishment or satisfaction? Did a special wish you asked the universe for finally come true?
Baske in the warmth of this emotional fulfilment. Why not? You deserve it!
You’ve worked very hard. It’s healthy to honor yourself in some small or large way as an incentive to keep you moving in a forward direction! Remember, you earned this. Reflect on how good this moment feels. How will you reward yourself?
This card shows the image of a successful fairy who is enjoying the music from her harp, while the fruits of her labor ripen around her.
Additional meanings of this card: Being happily self-employed. Creating a beautiful environment, enjoying the finer things in life. Cherishing your time alone.
Reward yourself for a job well done

and self-loving too,
