Card: 20 Lady of the Forest – from The Heart of Faerie Oracle by Brian and Wendy Froud.
“The Lady is the Forest is the eternal feminine, the other half of everything. There is a bias toward the feminine in Faerie because Faerie is an intuitive realm, a place of dreaming, creativity, and imagination that we associate with the feminine. “
Message from the Faeries: The Lady of the Forest is the mother of us all. She gives life to all Fae. Like you, we need to the mother and father to come into existence. In Faerie culture, we feel a deep connection to the divine feminine energy and we have a deep love and respect for it.
This week we ask you to check in with yourself. How are you loving and respecting feminine energy in your life? Are you expressing your love outwardly in any way on a daily basis? Are you respecting the feminine energy within?
From our perspective, all human beings carry both masculine and feminine energy within. Some people are fortunate to be in balance with both energies, while we notice that the masculine energy is the more favoured energy in most human cultures. This has nothing to do with how people who identify as women express themselves in physical form. What we are talking about is how you treat each other in a daily basis.
We notice that people who identify as men are more readily respected and treated better. We notice that many women experience this preferential treatment externally and internalize it in self-harmful ways.
Try to show some kindness and gentleness to the women in your life, and to that feminine energy within. What do you appreciate about the feminine aspect? What do you love about women? How are showing your love?
We love you,
