#Fairy #Tarot #Friday ~ May 8, 2020

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 unique 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: The Prince of Winter

Hello, my faery friends. Happy Friday! Today, I’ve chosen the Prince of Winter who moves with swiftness of a flash of light! Look in the left-hand corner of the photo. After I snapped this photo, I noticed the light reflection from my lamp. I took this as another sign that our faery friend wanted us to pay attention!

The Prince of Winter is a change card. The last time he appeared in one of my readings was on January 31, 2020. This was the day the United Kingdom formally withdrew from the European Union (Brexit). So, look for some earth shattering events on the horizon.

As a court card from the Minor Arcana, it represents either a situation or a person. On a personal level, this fairy prince asks us to prepare for a big change that we’ve been waiting a long while to happen. This could be the moment in your life when everything aligns at the right time and place as the universe offers you the chance to move forward on your path and welcome your destiny. Don’t let this moment slip away!

This little prince’s mind moves at warp speed, which means we’ve got to be ready for the change he brings when it happens. Carpe diem!

In more general terms, our world is changing at an exponential rate because of the coronavirus’ advancement around the world. What we once thought of as normal is long gone. Yet, many countries are loosening their rules about wearing masks and social distancing.

Perhaps this little faery is warning us to be more assertive and direct by asking ourselves the hard questions. He might suggest that it’s time to take a direct approach while being quick-witted and intellectual—we need to use our intelligence to determine if it’s safe to go without masks and practice social distancing.

Maybe we should slow down and reflect on what we know to be the truth. Trust the scientists and not the politicians. Do what is safe for you and your family.

Are you a risk taker like the Prince of Winter? Remember to take care because he is idealistic, decisive, focused, and determined. At that same time, he’s also impulsive and undiplomatic. He loves the thrill of the ride, but is he watching where he is going? He could set himself up for a fall, and that could be disastrous.

Does this sound like anyone you know?

The additional meaning of this card are: Believing strongly in your mission, fighting for justice. Experiencing sudden or unexpected changes. Intellectual solutions to problems.

“Carpe Diem,” #Shadorma

Embrace changes—
focus on your truth
ask questions
contemplate—
the gifts the universe grants
providence awaits

Today’s Card: The Five of Autumn

Our world continues to revolve through the chaos of the Corona Virus. While our elected officials bicker over whether to stay in quarantine or to reopen our world economies, most of us struggle to understand the implications of making money over saving lives.

I shuffled the cards three times and cut the deck. I then chose the top card. When I turned over this card, I felt the message came directly from the mother goddess, herself.

The Five of Autumn reminds us that when things feel challenging, there’s always a way to receive help—Ask for Divine guidance! Do you see the wise little boy fairy asking for help on the card’s image? Don’t be afraid to consult your gods and goddesses, the angels, or whatever spiritual source you feel comfortable consulting. They are always nearby, ready to hear your requests for assistance.

Be prepared, because help can suddenly appear and provide you with whatever you need. Look for the signs regarding how to proceed next. Remember, magical messages appear at every turn, and at every moment of every day. Ask for the messages to be made clear, so you know how to interpret the messages you receive.

Consider this: If you focus on the negative or the things in your life that make you unhappy, you’re setting yourself on the path for more difficulties to arise, which then become self-fulfilling prophecies. Instead, focus on the positives in your life.

The additional meanings of this card reflect what we all are feeling right now in these trying times. We all feel challenged by money issues, and obviously with all the layoffs this is poor timing for a career change. How many families are facing health concerns? Some of my friends have lost family members to the virus. Some believe they’re all alone when in reality, they are not.

How do we fix this? Shift your attention to what you have now, and what you want to manifest in the future. That way, your powers get used for good.

The Five of Autumn, #Butterfly #Cinquain

relief
comes to those who
ask for divine advice
when our lives feel most challenging
wise up
when magical messages come
embrace the positive
set forth your fate
flourish

Today’s Card

Eight of Spring

Wow… did I pick up on everyone’s mood or what? There are so many kinds of stress. This card reflect the kind that comes from having many wonderful things in your life at once!

Seriously, in the middle of stay at home notices and quarantines, please take the time to recognize your blessings! You may be juggling your family, your career and new opportunities, your fitness, maintaining your health, writing, etc. You just seem to have a lot on your plate right now. I get that.

Guess what? This is the card of successful multitasking. If things have been quiet for you, expect to see a big increase in traffic! Things will feel like they are speeding up. Make sure you complete all your tasks. If you can, delegate items on your to-do list. That will alleviate some of that stress you are feeling.

Be grateful for all the wonderful things in your life while you juggle them. You’ve got this!! Embrace your confidence and embrace any sudden events or rapid changes with a smile on your face.

The fairy in the card attempts to manage eight dandelions at one time. That’s a lot to handle… just remember, dandelions represent wishes that will come true. Are you ready?

Confidence Rising, #Shadorma

Stressful bliss—
manna from heaven
new balance,
for strange times
be grateful for your success
when wishes come true
