Faerie Card Reading for the Week of August 26th – September 1st, 2013
Card: 52 Paradox – from The Heart of Faerie Oracle cards by Brian and Wendy Froud.
“It’s good but it’s bad, it’s right but it’s wrong. What is it? It’s a paradox. All faeries are paradoxical in some way. They don’t easily fit into any one category. All good, or all bad just isn’t what they are about, but this is slightly different. This faerie shows up when something is , as and example, good bu bad at the same time in equal parts. Confusing, isn’t it? Have you ever been in a situation where you know that something is the right thing to do, but if you do it, it will be absolutely the wrong thing to do? Your intellect tells you that this is a good thing, but your gut instinct tells you that it’s a bad thing. This is a time to stop and really, really, pay attention. Look for signs. Examine your feelings, your intuition, your hunches. ”
Message from The Faeries: We love paradoxes! Life is paradoxical! You guys have made one of the greatest paradoxes there ever was when you all assisted in the creation of this reality. You assisted in the creation of duality. The male and the female. The good and the bad. The light and the dark. You can’t really have one without the other, and yet they aren’t really real. Physically you may be a woman or man, but as you can see in your world today, many more people are expressing themselves outside of their physical assignments. They are born a man, but they feel like a woman inside. As beings, you are becoming less and less limited by your physical manifestations. You are becoming less limited by your ideas of what it is to be a man, and what it is to be a woman. In the faerie realm, just like the angelic realm, we don’t have gender per se. We do sometimes physically manifest with male or female genetalia, but this isn’t for our own purposes. This is for human understanding of what we represent.
Today we are using the gender paradox as an example, but really we could go on and on about all the paradoxes to be found in life. Oh yes! Life and death are also a paradox! Is life the beginning or the end? Is the death the beginning or the end? Is there a beginning or an end? Perhaps we will save that topic for another day, because today really want you to focus on the most important message to come out of that card today: Pay attention!
Pay attention to your dreams right now. What are you dreams trying to tell you? Pay attention to your intuition. What are those little voices inside of you saying? There might be some things going on around you that aren’t making any sense right now. Or there may be some confusion or misunderstanding happening. Listen to yourself. Pay attention to your thoughts. Are you feeling as though all your thoughts and feelings are coming from yourself, or are they being projected onto you by others. There are some chaotic things happening right now in the Universe. Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the chaos, and sometimes it’s even fun, but for the next little while we would like you to use some caution. Pay attention to everything and ask yourself questions: Is this really how I feel? Is what’s going on around me ok? What do I really want to be doing right now? Is what this person saying even sounding right? Listen to yourself and trust yourself. Like the face in this picture – things are going to be a little topsy-turvy.
Buckle your seat belt and enjoy the ride!
We love you!
