Faerie Card Reading for the Week of July 16 – 22, 2018

Card: Queen of the Thrones of Air – from The Hermetic Tarot by Godfrey Dowson.

“A graceful woman with curly hair stands amid a multitude of rolling clouds. The crest above her head is the winged kerubic head of Air. Across her shoulders she holds a large sword, and in her right hand she grasps the newly-severed head of a man by the lock of his hair.”

Message from Erin: I really relate to this card. For the past few years I have often imagined that I have sword resting behind my shoulder blades. It’s a Sword of Justice. Like the Queen in this card, I would deliver swift justice to those who have broken sacred laws. I have imagined myself holding my sword to those who have committed atrocities.

The thing about carrying this sword around is that there is a great burden. The sword is quite heavy and it can restrict your movement. Also, in order to use the sword, you have to become very cunning, relying solely on your wits and having to ignore the pleas from the heart. Because of this, I choose not to carry a sword, but I have respect and admiration for those who choose to wield it.

This week, we are being asked to choose our mind over our hearts. If you are feeling driven by your emotional body, pay attention to your feelings but try not to let them be the deciding factor for any big decisions or actions you need to take. Try to use logic and your intellect instead. It’s important that you are very precise with your actions and words this week. If that seems to difficult, it might be best to try to hold off right now on making any major changes.

I love you,

Erin (and the Faeries)

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of May 21 – 27, 2018

Card: Ace of Swords – from The Hermetic Tarot by Godfrey Dowson.

“Invoked power for good or evil. Whirling force. Strength through trouble. Affirmation of justice. Great determination.”

Message from the Faeries: In a world that is full of chaos and uncertainty, it can be easy to get swept up by your or emotions. One emotion that is easing to get tangled up in is fear. Fear is a force of its own. It is so powerful for the that it can take over and one can be easily lost in it.

There will always be events that occur in your reality that will evoke fear. Sometimes fear is a necessary emotion that will help you survive, but it then becomes an emotion that is clinged to when no longer needed. Often, fear is irrational and evoked by others in order to cause you harm for their own benefit.

We want you take this sword that we present to you in this card. Learn to use this sword of knowledge and discernment to fend off the fear that is not serving you. Don’t let fear manipulate and control you. If you know that other people use fear to try and control you, what are you doing to stop it? You own yourself. Nobody else own you and fear does not own you.

One more thing we would like to say: when you feel like your heart is too hurt or fragile to move forward, turn to the cunning of your mind and use logic to guide you to your truth. Use this sword to fight your way through difficult times.

We love you,

The Faeries
