Card: Ixchel – from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“Commanding power is not the same as demanding it. Demanding comes from a childlike place akin to a tantrum, based upon the fear that it might be withheld. Commanding is based upon the fear the sure a steady knowledge that you are part of the Great Spirit’s grace and wisdom. You’re a lightening rod that can conduct the power.”
Note from Erin: I’ve been sick for the last 5 days, and today I’ve been feeling like a little kid wanting to throw a big tantrum. I had a pretty good laugh when I pulled this card – those rascal Faeries teasing me. It brings up a question for me: how do I conjure up a commanding energy for healing when I’m feeling so rotten? I really just feel sorry myself right now and I feel entitled to feeling better, lol.
Message from the Faeries: When you are not in a good place – when you are feeling down, unhappy or unwell – it can be difficult to be at a place of grace and dignity. When you are suffering, it is not easy to feel safe or be from a place of gratitude. When you are sick, it’s hard to see yourself as the healer.
Even when you are not feeling healthy, you are still the healer. You just have to find that space where you can calm your mind, and relax your soul. When you find the inner peace, you can find the grace to accept the healing into your life. Being in a relaxed and calm state will allow you to be in a place of acceptance: you are sick today, but it doesn’t mean you will be sick forever. This is where you are now, today. Be in the moment.
You can command healing for yourself and others when you trust and know that everything is happening in the moment, now, for a reason. It is all part of your journey. Sickness and health are all part of the ride. Try to relax and enjoy the whole thing – not just the parts you think are good – it is all good whether you know it or not.

Card: Three of Wands – from the Tarot Del Fuego by Ricardo Cavolo.
“Practical knowledge, strength, enterprise, trade, compromise”
Message from the Faeries: The three wands depicted in this card are this person’s legs and support. Wands are the element of fire and represent your ability to create, and so this card is showing you that you have all of the creative foundational support that you could possibly need. As well, you carry the essential fruit of knowledge within you to excecute your creative ideas with precision, and the ghosts surrounding you represent fact that you have all the spirit (and spiritual support) required to get the job done.
This week has all the potential of success. You have everything you need to achieve your goals, it is entirely up to you if you want to achieve what you desire. If you are experiencing any sort of trepidation, then it’s best to work that out before you get started. Go in with the mindset that you will be able to achieve success. A positive mindset will go a long way.
Another thing that we would like to remind you of is that it would benefit you greatly, right now, if you were focus mostly on yourself and not so much others. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a care. If someone is need then please help to the best of your ability, but otherwise you should try to not pay too much attention to what other people are doing if it isn’t your business. Focusing on other people is an indication that you aren’t wanting to take a look at yourself and that you might be ignoring your own behaviour. If you aren’t paying attention then you will have difficulty in executing any projects this week. Don’t forget to have a care for yourself.
We love you,
Card: Earthworm – from The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit cards by Kim Krans.
“This card is a reminder not to be intimidated or lose hope. Mastery takes time, and you’re on the right track. Besides, rumor has it betginner’s mind offers the most valuable insights.”
Message from the Faeries: A lot of people think of the earthworm as being at the bottom of the food chain. They are food for the birds, and a kitty like the one in this picture would like to play with the worm and maybe make a snack out of it.
It is true that worms are food, but if you dig a little deeper, and watch the worms, you know that they play a much more important role in the web of life.Worms make the rich soil that allows food to grow! Without the worms, there wouldn’t be all the lush green. There would be no plants! There would be no life!
So, if you are feeling small and insignificant, or if you feel like all the things that you say or do amounts to nothing, please remember that you are an important part of the web of life. Your life has meaning and a deeper significance than you can possibly imagine. It’s hard to see the big picture, especially when you are down in the dirt, but please know that you matter. Your life has great purpose and meaning.
Keep up all your hard work, and soon you will see things grow and blossom out of all your hard work.

Card: Knight of Coins – for The Fountain Tarot by Jonathan Saiz.
“As a Knight, this card signifies action, idealism and dedication. Unlike his quick and tenacious peers, the Knight of Coins is methodical, plodding and practical – almost fussy. For him, gathering facts, details, and string rarionale keeps the unexpected at bay. Fighting is a waste of time. Though he may appear slow and loves structure, he is consistent, dependable, and highly effective.”
Message from the Faeries: While it is true that some people get all the luck and they don’t have to work very hard to get what they want, these people are super rare and are almost borderline myth. They truth is, most people have to work really hard, and they have to dedicate a lot of time and energy to achieve their goals. The Knight of Coins is showing you the fruits of his labour. He worked really hard to accumulate his wealth, and it most certainly did not happen overnight.
We hear some of you talk about “the laws of attraction” and we find it quite interesting to watch people try to create things in their life simply by having positive thoughts and intentions. Most certainly a positive attitude and prayer can go a long way, but it will never take you the full distance. Action is always required. Sitting on your ass, hoping and praying, just isn’t going to get you where you want to be. You have to physically put things into motion and follow through to the very end.
This week is about following through. It is time to put your prayers into motion by taking action. Do whatever it takes to get your goals and dreams happening. It will require you to put a lot of your time and energy to get the ball rolling, and now is the absolute perfect time to do so. Most importantly, you most take action until your goal is achieved. Don’t get too consumed by the idea of time. It will get finished when it gets finished. Just enjoy the process and try to have fun along the way. Also, always maintain a positive attitude. As we always say: doubt is a killer.

Card: Nine of Worlds – from the Voyager Tarot by James Wanless, Ph.D.
“Harvest completions provide you the material wherewithal and insurance – like nuts gathered by the squirrel – for inactive periods and winters of austerity. Think ahead.
Unfinished projects and incomplete affairs are like fallen fruit that putrefies stagnates. This garbage holds you back from moving forward into the springs of new beginnings.”
Message from the Faeries: As you can see in this cards the planets, the Sun and the Moon are going to have a huge impact on the goings on in the world and your life right now. There is some powerful celestial activity that’s going to herald in some big changes for you on both a microcosmic and a macrocosmic level.
The eclipse and New Moon at the start of the week are the catalyst for the big changes coming your way. To make this transitional time in your life go smoother, it would be a really great idea for you to spend some time at the beginning of the week in contemplation and reflection. What are the blocks in your life at the moment? What do you need to let go of? What is no longer serving you? It’s time to let go. Do it now.
The next month or so is going to be really intense. You are going to see and hear some pretty wild and crazy things – some good and some bad – and it’s important for you to stay focused. Stay focused on being positive. Keep your head held up high. Keep your heart open. Keep an open mind. There are going to be some surprises along the way. The best attitude to cultivate at this time is to be optimistic and easy going. If you fight the changes that are coming, you will most certainly have a difficult time. It’s important to go with the flow.
The Harvest is coming. Autumn is coming and you will soon start to feel it in your bones. Change is coming, so enjoy this amazing time of transformation. You’ll be truly amazed at where you find yourself in the next few months. We are very excited and we hope you are too.

Card: Six of Cups – from The Hermetic Tarot by Godfrey Dawson.
“Lord of Pleasure. Six flowers rise up in the center of the card and each flower bends over a different cup. The stems of the flowers are haphazardly intertwined. A hand grasps all the stems and four large leaves. From each flower glistening water flows into the cups, yet the cups are never full. Above and below are the symbols of the Sun and Scorpio. Angela Nelokhiel and Yeyayel. Meanings: Contention. Pleasure. Past. Memories. Nostalgia. Steady gain. “
Message from Erin: Okay, full disclosure, I really struggled with the cards today. Normally things flow super easily and I don’t resist the messages that come each week, but this week I just wasn’t having it. I was actually clearly guided to pull a card from Doreen Virtue’s Magical Messages from the Fairies deck. I pulled one, got mad, pulled another and got annoyed and pulled a third and still didn’t like it! And believe or not I was super annoyed that the cards were all similar in theme and I was annoyed at the Faeries for being so damned positive! Haha!
I mean, how dare they be so positive when things feel so the opposite right now. Well, at least they feel that way to me. Things feel difficult! And the energy right now is so wacky and off putting. The Faeries, of course humoured me when I declared I was going to pick from my “dark tarot”. And of course, the card I picked has the exact same message as the other three cards. Joke is on me! Anyway, lesson learned! I should have just stuck with the first card.
Message from the Faeries: In spite of all the intense energies and negative things happening in the world, and despite your own struggles, things are really looking up for you this week and this a time where some things you’ve been working towards are really going to work out. We will go so far as to say: Things are going to work out to spite of all the dark and weird things going on this week. Good things can and will prevail!
We aren’t going to smother you with too much positivity because it might come across as unreal or disingenuous, but we hope this message of light will shine through the dark. Your cup(a) aren’t empty, they are flowing!
We love you,
Card: Heart-to-Heart Conversations – from the The Romance Angels Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“Your love life needs a healthy infusion of honest communication, according to the Romance Angels. You’ve been harboring emotions that are masking your feelings of love. There’s still time to heal the situation; however, it will require effort on your part. You may need to initiate an uncomfortable discussion and risk upsetting your partner. In the end, though, this is a necessary move to ensure the health of your relationship.”
Message from the Faeries: One of the things that we have observed for a long time now is that most people have a really hard time being honest with other people about how they are really feeling or about what they are really thinking. This often causes a lot do grief and troubles for you in the long run. What often happens in relationships and friendships is that someone’s behaviour, words or actions upsets the other person, but instead of saying anything, often out of fear, the offended person stays silent or pretends that everything okay.
There are, of course, many reasons why you do this. Afraid of being honest is often rooted in the fear that the person you are upset with will reject you when they know how you really feel, or another common reason is that you don’t want to hurt the other person’s feelings. While both of these outcomes are strong possibilities, we still wonder why you would rather live out a lie, by not being honest about how you really feel, rather then being up front and dealing with the consequences right away. Which ever approach you take, there will be consequences, but not being honest about how you feel right away only prolongs the outcome and causes more pain for yourself and the other person in the long run.
There are some very intense energies happening this week and there is a really good chance that you will find yourself having to be honest in an uncomfortable way. It will either be with yourself (most likely) or with someone else. There is also a really a good chance you will be on the receiving end of some honesty that you might not be expecting.
The good news is that this is all happening for the benefit of your own healing. Healing with yourself and healing in your relations. At the end of the day, it will do you all some good.
We love you,
Card: 6 The Lovers – from the Fairy Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.
“You are deserving of magical and long-lasting love! The fairies champion romance and deeply felt friendships for everyone. This card indicates that you are about to enter into a significant relationship in your life. If you are already in one, this card signals that positive changes are possible at this time and should be pursued. The kind of romance that comes with this card is powerful and often has a past-life connection.”
Message from the Faeries: Hooray for Love! We love Love! We hope that you love Love too! If there is one that that all of you could use right now, it’s some good old fashioned loving.
As you know, there are all kinds of types of love. The type of love we are talking about this week is a deep soul love. Have you ever met someone and you just felt so deeply connected with them right away, like you’ve known them forever? When you feel that way, that person is from your soul family. You will meet a few members of your soul family in your life. Sometimes they are lovers, family or friends.
This week you will either reconnect with someone from your soul family or you will meet someone new with whom you will instantly connect with on a deep level. If you’ve been praying to meet someone and fall in love, we hope you are ready to meet the love of your life because that’s who’s waiting to come your way. Are you ready for a deep soul connection? Are you ready for true love? Are you ready to meet one of the bestest friends you’ll ever have?
You deserve love. You deserve to be loved.
We love you,
Card: 7 Queen of Hearth and Home – from The Heart or Faerie Oracle Cards by Brian and Wendy Froud.
“The Queen of Hearth and Home carries with her the ability to make a home in the moment, in the now, wherever she is. She passes this ability onto you. It is important to ‘be at home’ in any situation, to create a ‘home’ when you invite people in to your space, whether a table in a restaurant, a desk at work, a seat next to you on a bus or plane, or in your own home.”
Message from the Faeries: This week’s reading is related to last week’s reading. Last week we talked about the importance of compassion, and how much the world needs it right now. Now more than ever. Compassion makes the world more hospitable. This faerie queen is here to remind you have of the importance of hospitality.
Hospitality isn’t just about giving people a nice place to sit or sleep, and it isn’t just about offering fresh food and drink. Hospitality is about showing people grace in your space. Your space is whatever is all around you at any given moment. It can be a challenging being gracious with your space when you live in such an unfriendly environment where most people seem so selfish with their space.
How many times of you sat on a bus, only to feel your own space infringed upon by the person sitting next to you who insists on sitting with their legs wide open. We’re certain you can think of countless examples of people being in hospitable. This behaviour is mostly due to a lack of awareness of what they are doing. It’s really not personal they truly just aren’t aware.
See the mask this Queen is wearing? She is slightly lowering it down because she is getting ready to tell someone that they are being inhospitable and she is going to gently remind that they are sharing a space with other people. We encourage you to lead by example this week, and we want to tell you that it’s okay to tactfully and gracefully tell someone if they aren’t reciprocating with the hospitality. Sometimes people just need a little nudge. Chances are they just aren’t paying attention and are not living in the moment like you are.
We love you.
Card: 27 MAMALAHOE – from the Mana Cards: The Power of Hawaiian Wisdom by Catherine Becker and Doya Nardin.
“The splintered paddle represents compassion. It is a reminder that the quest for power or success should not allow your ego to interfere with your ability to be compassionate towards yourself or other people. Self-centeredness driven by ego can cloud your ability to empathize with others. What you give to others will be given back to you. If you forget to have compassion for the weakness, faults, and failures of others, then you risk becoming shortsighted, unfair, emotionally cold, torn up or dead inside.”
Message from the Faeries: What is humanity lacking in abundance right now? Compassion. There just isn’t enough compassion in the world. If there was a lot of compassion, there wouldn’t be so many people suffering and at odds with themselves and each other.
Most of you are way too harsh on yourselves. You are super critical, unkind, judgemental and miserly with yourself. This causes so many of the struggles and problems that you have in your life. It causes you to have a terrible relationship with yourself, and it’s why you have so many difficulties in your relationship with others.
If an alien landed on your planet, and they were a compassionate alien, they would see how awful everyone was to themselves and each other and they would probably hop back on their spaceship and fly away. They would come back to visit sometime in the future in hopes that you have all learned a thing or two about compassion, because they see the seeds of compassion planted inside of you, and they know the potentiality of humanity.
If you have a difficult time being compassionate towards others, then begin with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Don’t be judgemental towards yourself. Be generous to yourself. Be loving to yourself. Once you are for real being compassionate towards yourself, it will be easy to be compassionate towards others. Why are you more compassionate towards some people more than others? Everyone deserves love and compassion. Imagine a world where this was true?
We love you.
