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: Ace of Winter
The Ace of Winter is the first card in the Winter suit. The message from the card is simple. Don’t be deterred by challenges along the way. You’re on the right path, and your plans are protected and safe. Any difficulties you experience are intended to make you stronger—they aren’t blocks at all.
Trust that the new ideas you have are inspired and worthy of your time and energy. You’re crystal clear on what to do, even if you’re doubting yourself. I know many of us need to hear this message!
Have confidence in your own insights. Communicate in a clear and concise fashion in order to avoid confusion, but be careful not to seem cold in the way you speak your truth!
Look at this fairy… She holds great magic in her hands, but also that of pure crystalline thought floating above her head. Her companion represents the potential strength and courage she will grow into.
Additional meanings of this card: Brilliant new concepts. Overcoming obstacles. Remaining optimistic. Being objective. Noticing and trusting the signs of a positive outcome.
With the election looming and the full blue moon on Samhain, the energy in the cosmos is swirling. Focus your energies on a positive outcome and believe it will happen. Magic is everywhere.
