#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.

unexpected gifts—
shy glances between lovers
two hearts become one

Today’s Card: Ace of Winter

Don’t be deterred by challenges along the way. It’s important to communicate clearly and accurately. Amazing new ideas that should be implemented.

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.

Today’s Card: Queen of Autumn

What a perfect card for a Friday. Consider this Queen to be like a fairy god-mother. She cares about everyone and can’t wait to swoop in to save the day! She is generous and giving, and loves to make dreams come true. She adores luxurious and beautiful things. She could spin straw into gold if you asked her… and she’d love to try!

The Queen of Autumn’s family means the world to her. She also can run a small company and a large household without so much as breaking a sweat! The Queen also has an eye for decorating. Her motto is “Form and function, dearie. Form and function.”

Guess what? The Queen’s tastes are expensive (very expensive)! Thank goodness she’s discerning—and picky! Fortunately, she’s good with money because she spends it like crazy. By the way, the Queen marries well. Does the Queen remind you of anyone in your family?

In this card, the Queen sits on her throne. She may appear inactive, but magic swirls around her! The rabbit by her side symbolizes the prosperity and creativity at her command. READ: Rabbit Symbolism & Meaning

Since the Queen embodies the tradition of family, this card represents a woman skillful in the management of finances who possesses a practical nature.

This person could come to your aid in some financial matter. It is likely that her advice will be spot-on regarding better money management. The advice you receive will help you create abundant prosperity, so listen carefully. #Fairy #Tarot #Friday

Be practical in your decisions and how you proceed with the advice you’ve received. Pay attention to the messages from the universe. Look for signs signaling that you are on the right path.

Additional meanings of this card: The ability to make anything more beautiful. The ability to be sensible. A love of gardening. A wonderful parent.

Today’s Card: Six of Autumn

The prosperous fairy in this card shares her wealth with those around her. Her kindness is admirable, so long as she is giving wisely.

“Look for an unexpected inflow of money. Don’t forget to share the success you’re blessed with. As you give to those in need, the universe gives back to you tenfold.” #Fairy #Tarot #Friday

Remember, giving doesn’t have to be in the form of money. Many people desire your time, more than anything else. Even in the days of social distancing, we can connect via social media with family and friends. Don’t forget to call your mother or father. They need to hear your voice.

Have you considered volunteering? Perhaps you have some rare insights to share with others? How about offering instruction in something you’re good at? The blogging world is full of opportunity!

However, be wise in your giving. It’s important to know that the organization you’re supporting is reputable and doing honest, good work. Do your research. Ask your god(s), the angels, or the fairies to deliver clear messages about which associations you can trust.

Meaning of Number 6

“The number 6 is a symbol of completeness. Number 6 symbolizes beauty and high ideals. It is a perfect number. The Pythagoreans acknowledged number 6 to be the first perfect number…”

Additional meanings of this card: Balance between giving and receiving. Providing what is truly needed. Sharing the wealth. Tithing. Money for college or continuing education.

They number the Minor Arcana cards 1 (Ace) through 10, plus the four court cards (Princess, Prince, Queen, and King).

Today’s Card: The Prince of Winter ~ Intellectual, Determined, Focused, Impulsive

Happy Friday! Wow, the Prince of Winter moves at the speed of light. Don’t blink or you might miss him.

When this card shows up, you know you’re in for some quick action! This little fairy’s mind moves fast, and he can assess a situation quickly which allows him to get right to work. This is great energy for completing projects that you started but didn’t finish.

Remember, when this fairy’s on a mission, you may as well stand back and let him take charge, because he will, whether or not you want him to! Breathe into this potential and use it to your advantage. This is the time to act quickly and decisively. Be prepared for sudden or unexpected changes.

By drawing this card we know we are also dealing with idealistic, decisive, focused, and determined energy. Expect decisions to become a little impulsive and undiplomatic, which is much of the energy swirling around in U.S. politics at the moment. Keep your eye on what they do and not what they say!

Concerning any of your own projects and aims, my best advice is to pause and reflect before you set any plans into motion. Weigh out all your options. Is this plan as sound as it seems? What are you not seeing? Seek an intellectual solution to your issue.

Additional meanings of this card: Believing strongly in your mission. Fighting for justice. Sudden or unexpected changes. Intellectual solutions to problems.

Today’s Card: The Chariot

What a fantastic draw! Freyja, the wise woman’s apprentice picked this card today. She seemed to be a natural!

“The Chariot,” from the Major Arcana, signifies that you’ve done great work so far! Of course, you still have many priorities that you are balancing at the same time. It couldn’t be any other way. Be prepared. You may be called upon to keep control of more than one driving force at a time. stay centered, strong, and determined. I know you will accomplish your goal!

Remain steadfast in your sense of purpose, and don’t allow other influences to steer you off course. If you keep at it, you can accomplish far more than you realize.

This card also reminds us that it’s your moment to step into the spotlight. Drawing attention to yourself or your work can feel awkward, but it’s absolutely essential at this time for you to make this move. Don’t hesitate! Show people what you’ve got.

Be genuine and optimistic in your interactions with people and the public. Your excitement for your goals will shine through and your confidence will increase. Be proud of your accomplishments.

Notice the faery charioteer who leads two dragonflies. These magical creatures have the ability to go in any direction—and at amazing speeds! The fact that this faery can keep the dragonflies under control and headed in the right direction is a testament to her determination and skill. You possess these same qualities!

Additional meanings of this card:

Self-control. Victory! Celebrate what you’ve achieved. Accomplish your dreams. Modes of transportation, and work-related travel figure into this card, as well.

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?

Today’s Card: Three of Summer

Happy Full Strawberry Moon! In the Northern Hemisphere, the Algonquin tribes in New England chose this name for the full moon in June because this was the best time of year to harvest the strawberries that grew wild in the area. (Moongiant.com)

There’s a lot going on in the world right now so if you need to pause and take a break from the chaos, do that. Practice self-love and take care of you and your family.

I feel the energies of the universe swirling around me today, so I gasped in surprise when I selected the Three of Summer card. This card in Fairy Tarot is equivalent to the Three of Cups card.

Notice the three frolicking fairies in the card? They are celebrating their wonderful fortune with a dip in the cool water. It looks like they are having a marvelous time!

Consider the number three and its meaning in this card, as well:

Angel Number Three

The Meaning of the Number Three

When the universe plays beautiful music, it’s time to dance. When life presents you with joyful news, it’s time to celebrate. The Three of Summer is a card that celebrates friendship, sisterhood, and creative collaborations.

Yesterday, my daughter, Amy, shared that she and her boyfriend, Joe, had decided to get married sometime this summer. Apparently, my delightful news colored today’s card selection!

But, wait… do you have news worth celebrating? Any weddings, graduations, or births in your future?

You know, this is also the perfect time to celebrate the friends you cherish. Embrace this moment as a drop in the ocean of all the blessings the universe holds in store for you.

With some creative social distancing, you can get together with your friends to spend some quality time. Those of us on the blogs do that often through social media: FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger. Be creative.

This together time, when you give and receive love and encouragement to and from your friends, is the most important part of this message. Embrace this full moon energy. You’re here to do important things together!

Remember to tell those around you how much they mean to you. Spend time with family and friends. Your words will be warmly embraced, and your truthful intentions will be honored.

Don’t forget to experience gratitude for all these gifts which bring happiness to your soul. Be thankful for this opportunity.

Additional Meanings of this card: An impending wedding. Becoming pregnant or giving birth. Vibrant health. Becoming part of a close-knit community or “chosen” family. Embrace the love.

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: The Dreamer

I spent some additional time meditating this morning as I wondered what today’s message from the fairies would be. There’s so much unrest in America. I can’t force the images of the nightly newscast from my brain.

As of late, I’ve withdrawn from the constant bombardment of negativity that is known as American politics. I feel powerless in a system where my only option is to vote in order for my voice to be heard. Not dealing with the negativity has had positive results. I’m sleeping better and have returned to my daily writing habit. It’s been a life changer!

So, this morning when I drew The Dreamer card from the Major Arcana, I knew the messages from the fey would be special.

In other Tarot decks, the first card in the Major Arcana is the Fool card which suggests that you should forge ahead with your plans without a lot of worry. For me, this has always represented an expedition into examining what my purpose is in this life.

What dreams are you waiting to come true?

In Fairy Tarot, the Dreamer card suggests the first step in making any dream come true is to believe… all happiness and self-confidence begin with an act of faith.

There’s a reason we have these dreams. But first, we must believe in ourselves! Let nothing hold you back. Release your fears and follow your heart’s desires.

This card also suggests that it’s time to fulfill your life purpose. And in true fairy-spirit, the fey ask you to embrace your future with joy and exuberance. Life doesn’t have to be serious all the time. Laugh a little!

Start your transformation by telling supportive people of your intentions. Did you know that when we verbally express our plans, we become committed to moving forward with those plans? It’s all in the power of the spoken word. When said with conviction, the voicing of our hopes helps us find the courage we need to bring about genuine change.

In this card, the fairy dreamer stands at the base of the mountain where up top sits the Glastonbury Tor, a sacred tower dedicated to mighty Archangel Michael. Doreen Virtue was all about symbols, so this tower is a symbol of your beginning journey. It’s a nod at the fool’s journey—Are you ready for a fresh start?

See the cardinal flying above the fairy in this card? The red bird symbolizes power, wealth, and enthusiasm. Knowing what you want, and how to get it, is the central power of the Cardinal bird. (Cardinal Symbolism)

I especially like the dog image on this card. Her paw points in a forward direction, showing that the time to move forward has arrived. Yet, the dog represents loyalty, protection, and devotion. (Dog Symbolism & Meaning)

Additional meaning of this card: Time for a fresh start. Be open to novel ideas. Is it time to embark on a new adventure? Go ahead, embrace your true purpose. Take risks.

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.
