Card: Three of Spring – from the Victorian Fairy Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone.
“The first warm days of spring draw the fairies outdoors to joyously express their talents and avocations, like this happy musician. Perched in a blossoming pear tree, he strings his fairy harp. The pear tree’s message is ‘affection and comfort’, both of which are wholeheartedly felt by the fairy as he is joined by three linnets, who begin an impromptu concert with a thrilling burst of melody. The fairies’ relationship with the birds is a complicated one, but for the most part they enjoy each other’s company and, in some cases, share a deep and abiding friendship. Music is the bond that links them best, and all winter born fairy and linnet look forward to joining together in song. As Wordsworth wrote in his poem ‘The Green Linnet’:
In this sequester’d nook how sweet – To sit upon my orchard-seat – And flowers and birds once more to greet – My last year’s friends together!”
Message from the Faeries: For many of you reading this, you are in the throws of early Spring. The snow is starting to melt and you find yourself becoming more social. Many of you are starting to spend lots of time outside, and some of you are fortunate enough to be enjoying early blossoms and flowers. This is definitely a time where you are coming out of your Winter hibernation, and are spending more time with friends and family.
This would be a good week to be outside, enjoying the wonders of nature. Go out and visit the birds and they are busy building their nests, coupling and laying eggs. Listen carefully to their songs, especially in the morning, as they sing to the trees, encouraging them to blossom and grow leaves for them to seek shelter in. Pay attention to the close relationship that the birds share with the trees. One can’t live without the other.
Let the energy of Spring in the air inspire you to do something creative. Listen to music. Go dancing. Make dinner for some friends. Write a poem. Sing a song. Do whatever it is you do to lift your heart and feel light. Don’t get so caught up in the humdrum of day to day life. Let nature lift your spirit and feel your spirit soar.
It’s time to put that spring back in your step!
We hope you all have a wonderful week.
We love you.
