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: Seven of Summer

No more procrastinating! Your power comes from making a decision. Confusion that arises from over-analyzing the options.

I’ve not picked up the fairy tarot cards for a few weeks. I felt like so much was out of my control, lately. Sometimes the way to clarity is to just let it all happen, especially when things are out of our control. So, I waited to see what happened next.

Today, I felt the call. I shuffled the cards and asked the universe for the message to share. Someone needs this message…

There are always pros and cons to every decision. The situation you’re in is demanding a choice from you, and procrastination is no longer an option. What you decide involves actions that may benefit you physically, emotionally, financially, intellectually, or spiritually. Recognizing that you always have a choice is a great realization about your personal power.

Now, realize that this also means that you are responsible for the outcome of your choices. The moment to choose has arrived!

You could make a list of every alternative and test it, or you could seek the answer through prayer, or by speaking to your god, (or gods, or goddesses). The message is: The time to choose is now! Just do it!

Daydreaming or meditation is a great way to get an insight into a challenging situation—or it can be a way to avoid taking action. Make sure your imaginings serve a productive and positive purpose. Make a plan to put your dreams into action, one step at a time, and follow through.

The Seven of Summer shows a fairy who allows the sunlight to shine through a prism, onto a bed of white roses. White roses signify that his intentions are pure, but the prism (rainbow) shows there are many possibilities.

Additional meanings of this card: wishful thinking, needing to regain focus. Over analyzing, too many choices. Receiving guidance to detox.

Just Breathe, #Senryu

rainbow prisms sparkle
embrace your secret power
always choose wisely
