#Fairy #Tarot #Friday ~ December 4, 2020

Welcome to Fairy Tarot Friday. I’m in the middle of packing to move cross-country. So much is changing so quickly. I’ll try to stay in touch. Each Friday I wanted to 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

Today’s card is the Two of Summer. When it’s real, you know it! This relationship is one you can count on. Two hearts become one in a beautiful moment of genuine romance. It’s safe to make a commitment and allow yourself to love and be loved! Let yourself rejoice and revel in these heart-fluttering emotions.

Wow… what a great message. We all need to hear this, especially during the busiest time of the year. This year has been like no other, so try to go with the flow. Reflect on the positives and not the negatives. This too shall pass…

Relationships sometimes go through challenges. This isn’t the time to give up. If your partnership is feeling strained, continue to work on it. Love still lives in the hearts of both individuals. Stay in a place of faith.

Look at the image on this card. The male fairy shows his passion for the female by bringing her to a bed of red roses. A waterfall cascades behind them, showing the power of the emotions between the couple.

Additional meanings of this card: Getting engaged. An equal partnership. Forgiveness and resolving a problem. An unexpected gift. An intimate friendship. Ending a disagreement.

“Love and Be Loved,” #Senryu

unexpected gifts—
shy glances between lovers
two hearts become one
