Card: Four of Earth – from the Angel Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.
“Your hard work is paying off, but stay alert to new possibilities. Change is inevitable and can bring newfound sources of abundance. Be open to new and exciting opportunities. Don’t let fear-based thoughts limit your actions.”
Message from the Faeries: The dark haired faerie on this card is looking very reluctant. She has a basket full of coins, but she’s feeling unsure if she can afford to give any of her abundance away. She isn’t feeling totally secure in this moment. The smaller faerie looking up to her is trying to reassure her that everything is going to be okay. It’s okay for her to let go of her coins.
People who are misers are living in a place of fear. They aren’t just afraid of losing all their money and possessions, they are also so afraid of losing everything that they have forgotten how to really live. It’s sad, but they are afraid to die and they don’t know what it means to feel fully alive.
You have so much abundance in your life, and you have so much to live for. If you are feeling a little of afraid to give or be generous right now, please be assured that you are already taken care of, and it’s okay to share. Giving is one of the greatest feelings in the world and it opens you up to receiving. Giving doesn’t mean a depletion of resources. Giving is a way to express your trust in yourself and other human beings.

Card: 4 Hot Seat – from The Secret Dakini Oracle cards by Nik Douglas and Penny Slinger.
“From the seat of the throne great flames issue forth, indicating the tremendous masculine transforming power inherent here. This power is related to spiritual and secular authority. The seat is that of a Master of the Universe; any person prepared to take such a position should first be sure that adequate work has been achieved and that he or she is prepared for the responsibility. Under the seat depicted the mystic stone of Scone, over which many battles have been fought and many lives lost. Here it is still only a stone, though it has a practical function as a support once the flames have been overcome. “
Message from the Faeries: Uh Oh! You are going to be finding yourself sitting in the hot seat this week! Do you think you can handle it? Is your butt feeling toasty yet? Well, regardless of how you think or feel about it, we know for a fact that you can handle it. As a matter of fact, we are going to tell you the straight up hard truth of it – you are sitting in the hot seat because you deserve it.
Does that sound a little harsh? It’s not intended to be. Do you think that sitting in the hot seat is some sort of punishment?!Well, it’s not. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. You should be honoured to sit on this throne. Do you think just anybody gets to sit there? No, you have to earn the chance to sit on this magnificent chair. You sincerely cannot sit on this throne until you have earned the right, and you are now sitting in it because it is now time for you to be the boss and make some tough decisions.
This week is the culmination of many moments that have brought you to the hot seat. No more dilly-dallying and wasting your time. You have some difficult life choices to make before you move on to your next adventures. You see, it’s time to decide who you want to be, how you want to be, where you want to be, what you want to be and when you want to get there.
It’s the end of the year and now is the time to begin looking ahead and figure out what you need to do to move forward. So now is the time to make some tough decisions. Do you keep your job? Do you need to move? Do you stay in your relationship? Are you where you want to be? Are you the person you see yourself as? There are a lot of difficult questions you need to be asking. Now is also the time to act. If you can’t move quickly, then at least get the your plans into motion. If you don’t make changes on your own, life will find a way to do it for you and it might be a little more challenging if you don’t have a say in the matter.

Card: Starfish – from the The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit cards by Kim Krans.
“The starfish is a natural and exquisite beauty, mesmerizing to all. Being around someone with starfish energy is a thrill, like you’ve been put under a spell of divinity itself. The problem is, these creatures have been reliant on how they look (and what other people think of them) for so long that they may have forgotten their life’s deeper calling. When this card appears it’s important to ask: Am I being swayed by outward appearances? What dreams have I put aside to please others?”
Message from the Faeries: This is your week to shine like a star. Go out there and be your bright and vibrant self. It’s okay to sometimes be the person in the room that everyone room gravitates towards. It can be lots of fun being the centre of attention. We encourage you to explore your star-like qualities and to find enjoyment in your glamorous self.
Of course, when someone’s star qualities are out of balance and they become desperate for attention, this can be an unhealthy behaviour. The opposite shadow aspect of this is when you shun the spotlight and withdraw too much into yourself. We aren’t asking you to go out and become a celebrity (unless you really want that!), we are just asking you to go out and have more fun.
We also think it can be joyful and exciting to put yourself out there. Put on some of your best clothes, maybe put on a little make-up or put on your fancy shoes. Pay attention to how you feel when you put a little effort in your appearance. If it feels good, why don’t you do it more often. Also, pay attention to how other people react to you when you put a bit more effort your self-care. How does that make you feel? Have fun with it!

Card: Ten of Winter – from the Fairy Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.
“It’s time to walk (or run!) away. This situation no longer serves you and is merely holding you back. Sometimes endings are sad, and sometimes they’re a relief. Changes can be stressful and intimidating, but trust that this is a healthy and necessary one.”
Message from Erin: A few minutes before I pulled this card, I was having this overwhelming feeling of sadness and heartbreak. It was strange because it felt like it came out of nowhere. I felt like I was going to cry, but I had no idea why I was feeling that way. I think this card holds an answer for me: a part of me is dying, and I don’t want to let go. I’m scared if I let go of this fear I carry deep inside of me, that I will lose control and over my life and lose myself somehow. But these deep feelings and fears are no longer serving me. These fears are holding me back. I wonder if this card holds true for any of you…
Message from the Faeries: As winter approaches, the seasonal changes are going to be reflected outwardly and inwardly. As some creatures and plants are dying, so are parts of yourself. Don’t be afraid of death and changes, it’s all very natural and healthy.
Maybe some aspect of your life is in great need of change. Is it time to end a relationship? Is it time to move away? Is it time to quit your job? Maybe it’s something more profound. Maybe it’s time to change your way of thinking, or maybe it’s time to open your heart and mind to new possibilities. Whatever changes come your way, we hope you embrace them with ease and grace.

Card: Kick Up Your Heels – from the Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“There is always something to celebrate, and this card asks you to do so now. Your soul longs for an exciting adventure, such as a out-of-town trip, throwing a party, or kicking up your heels and dancing. Sometimes we procrastinate when it comes to personal time-outs, believing that such activities cost too much time and money. Yet the benefits of celebrating are many: getting a fresh perspective and new ideas, rekindling old friendships, and the sheer joy of entertaining yourself.”
Message from the Faeries: If you haven’t been having any fun lately then it’s time to get at it. It’s easy to get caught up in all the seriousness and business of life and lose sight of the big picture. As far as we are concerned, a life without fun is not a life worth living. So if you aren’t having any fun, then you are doing it wrong.
Some of you might not want to take our advice. Why would you listen to the faeries? We are notorious partiers and we don’t seem to take anything too seriously. Correct? Well it is true we love to play, make games and have lots of fun, but we do take the business of partying very seriously. The more joy and laughter, then the better a life and a more livable world.
One of the reasons you all have so much stress in your lives is because you take yourselves and everything else so seriously. Lighten up a little! We challenge you to spend at least 30 minutes each day doing something that you enjoy and brings you joy. It has to be activities that you don’t normally do, like dancing, singing or going to a new restaurant. It’s time to shake things up a little and bring more smiles to your hearts. Then, pay attention to how these moments of fun each day impact how your week goes, overall. Maybe you’ll decide to make a regular habit of it.

Card: Two of Wands – from the Circle of Life Tarot by Maria Distefano.
“It is presumptuous to think that certain problems and difficulties are ours alone. Knowing that we share them may serve and consolation.”
Message from the Faeries: Last week the wands appeared, and they are back again this week. Wands are the element of fire, and they represent the alchemical and creative energies. This is very much a time of change and transformation. Right now would be a good time to be doing some sort of creative project.
In the imagery of this card, there are two women with their backs to each other. They are both working with their own separate fires. Imagine what would happen if they were to face each other and share their creative energies. A partnership may not only increase their productivity, it might also allow them to learn and share new ideas. Sometimes it can really pay off to work on important projects with other people. If you don’t want to work with other people, it could also be valuable to ask someone to look at your work and ask for their feedback.
Another aspect of this card is the number 2. There is a duality expressed in this imagery, not only with the two faeries, or the two snails, but also with showing the the contrast of the light and the darkness. As the days are getting shorter there is a movement closer towards more darkness. It’s okay to spend some time exploring your shadow sides if you feel so inclined, just remember to keep it close to the light.
We love you,
Card: Five of Wands – from the Shadowscapes tarot by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and Barbara Moore.
“In the Five of Wands, sometimes it seems the world tosses dozens of obstacles in your path. When gathered together, these minor obstructions become an overwhelming wall to overcome, but take heart and let the adrenaline awaken body and mind to rise to the challenge. Answer that challenge not with despair but with renewed vigor. Appreciate the unknown strengths that are drawn forth when faced with difficulties.”
Message from the Faeries: Now is not the time for dithering or dilly-dallying. Now is not the time for sitting around and waiting for things to happen. Now is not the time for feeling overwhelmed, like you can’t move or take action. Now is the time to get up and move and get things done.
It’s easy to feel paralyzed with fear or overwhelmed, especially when it feels like everything is happening at once. This week is going to be fast paced and feel like there is no end in sight. Have no fear, this is just a passing moment of hectic business. Things will start to wind down at the end of week. That is when you can take a breather and rest. The week will go by super quickly, you just need to hunker down and get to business.
Like the rabbit in the imagery of this card, you will manage to get through this week unscathed, but it will take some determination on your part. Take courage and believe in yourself. We have no doubt whatsoever that you can accomplish all you need to at this time. You’ve got this.
We love you,
Card: King of Coins – from The Fountain Tarot by Jonathan Saiz.
“Traditional values, practicality, and hard work have kept the King of Coins grounded and successful, giving him both material wealth and a respect for the rhythms of life – the ups and downs. The King hates risk and cares little for innovation or about what’s popular, order and common sense rule the day.”
Message from the Faeries: The King of Coins (Pentacles) has appeared once again. He’s come to check in to see the progress you are making. Are you getting ready for the cold winter? Have you been taking good care of yourself? What kind of provisions are you setting aside?
You might be feeling a bit lazy these days, or maybe you are energized by this season. Either way, things are going to start slowing down soon, so it’s really important to get any tasks that you’ve been procrastinating on done in the next couple of weeks. If you are feeling too tired to do something on your own, you can also ask other people to assist you. It’s okay to ask for help.
Right now is not the time to be frivolous with your time, energy and resources. It is a time for being practical and focusing on what’s essential and important. Prioritize carefully and don’t waste yourself on anything that isn’t important to you. It sounds simple and basic common sense, but good to adhere to: if something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. Wasting time right now will cost you in long run.
Despite the more serious tone of this week’s message, please also remember to spend at least one moment of this week – hopefully more – doing the things you love to do. Weather permitting, go out and enjoy the beauty of the earth changes.
We love you,
Card: 60 The Pook – from The Faeries’ Oracle by Brian Froud and Jessica Macbeth.
“Our paradoxes and confusions are self-created, and the Pook need only dress them up a bit, add a little sparkle, and dangle them before is in order to induce confusion. In that confusion, we are likely to believe almost anything someone presents to us, just as if we have a metaphorical anchor in reality. His challenge for us is to wake up, to stop projecting our confusions on reality.”
Message from the Faeries: As you movie further into October, the veils between realms is getting thinner and thinner. You may start to notice things around you that you didn’t before. It might be events or situations in your life that you begin to see in a new light.
The Pook can be a tricky fellow. He can cause confusion and make you question reality. He’s hanging around right now to assist you in seeing through the veil. Warning: it might turn your world upside down. There might be a little chaos in your life in the next week or two. This isn’t a bad thing. It just means that your truth and reality will be changing.
Would rather see things for how they really are, or would like to keep up the charade? It’s ultimately up to you at the end of the day, but you might find it difficult to resist the Pook. He can be quite persuasive. It might be worth the adventure to discover your truth, even it means having to change your way of looking at the world. We strongly encourage having an open mind this week. If you resist the truth, it will likely rob you of an opportunity to change, shift or transform.
We love you,
Card: VI The Lovers – from the Tarot Del Fuego by Ricardo Cavolo.
“Love, beauty, unanimity, trists overcome, confidence, beginning of a possible romance, infatuation, tendency towards optimism, letting oneself go, the necessity of testing or subjecting to trial, struggle between sacred and profane love, putting to the proof, yearning.”
Message from the Faeries: This week, it’s all about love. For those of you who are single and are hoping to meet someone, and for those who are wanting romance in your life, this week will present you with an opportunity. If this is what you really want in your life right now, then pay close attention to signs being given to you and listen tonyour intuition. If you feel compelled to go somewhere or do something, then you should follow your instincts.
We would like to take this time to tell you that you are all surrounded by love, all the time. If you are feeling a lack of love right now, then you are not paying attention to the love that is there for you at all times. It means you’ve closed yourself off to love that is always there. Open yourself up and be vulnerable. Let the love in.
Please don’t forget this you are made of love. You don’t even have to look outside for love, all you could possibly need is within. Give yourself some love you deserved it.
And this is our other message for this week – you all deserve love. Every single one of you. No exception. You all deserve to be have love. You all deserve to be loved. You all deserve to give love too. We hope you take this to heart.
We love you,
