Card: Three of Cups – from the Shadowscapes tarot by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and Barbara Moore.
“There is a song that dwells at the ocean’s floor. Once in a great while, it bursts forth in an unstoppable swell to rise towards the surface. The Three of Cups is a call to celebration, dancing, and singing. Friendship is its key component, and companionship, relying on others, and developing community and team spirit.”
Message from the Faeries: Last week’s card was about healing the heart and relationships. This week we are still wanting to talk to you about the heart and relationships. Specifically we want to talk to you have your friends and community.
One of the greatest blessings you will have in this life are your friends. Friendships are the magical connections that you make with other people that you share common interests or experiences with. While friends are like family, the relationship can be stronger and healthier because there isn’t the same expectations or history that is shared with your blood family members. You can’t pick your parents, but you can pick your friends.
This week is a good opportunity to reflect on all the special connections you’ve made in your life. It doesn’t matter if you are still friends or not. Cherish the memories and honour, in your heart, the blessings of those special connections. All of you have been blessed with so much fun and love. Keep your heart open and full of excitement for all the connections and special moments you will share in the future.
Take a moment and imagine yourself celebrating with all your friends – past, present and future. How wonderful and lucky you have been to meet such amazing people! You are truly blessed. Enjoy and be thankful.
We love you,
Card: Three of Summer – from the Victorian Fairy Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone.
“Making time for friendship is as important as any other aspect of life. If you’ve been neglecting your connections to friends, now is the time to make it a priority. You will find great satisfaction in gathering with those who know you well and with whom you can be yourself. There doesn’t need to be a special occasion for a gathering of friends—the time you spend in good company is a celebration in itself.”
Message from The Faeries: This week it’s important that you take a break from your schedules and day-to-day life, and spend time with good friends. Be sure sure you go out and have some fun together.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the mundane, and to isolate yourself from the company of those who love you. The way most of your lives are designed, you spend your time either at home or at work, and you spend little time with your friends.
Go out! Have fun. Break free from your routine and spend time with people who love you unconditionally. That’s what real friends are. They are people that you feel free to just let go and have fun with. They are also the people you can say anything to. They are also the people have your back during the tough times.
Whatever you have scheduled for this week, be sure to spend time having fun with friends.
Erin: I had a chuckle when I picked this card. I thought for surely that it was meant just for me, but the Faeries insist that this card is for everyone.
This week, one of my best friends is visiting me. I’ve known him for 25 years – since I was 15! It’s so wonderful to have someone around that knows me so well. I would say that he is like family, but it’s different. With family comes pressure and expectations. With a good friend, you can say and do whatever you want. You don’t have to worry so much about pleasing people or about hurting feelings.
It feels good to spend time with friends, especially good friends that you can just hang out, let loose and be yourself with.
