“Sometimes having to struggle for something you want adds sweetness to its attainment. If you are facing challenges to your power or obstacles to your endeavor, use your ingenuity to see how you can turn those trials to your advantage. Defend what is yours with righteous courage.”
Message from The Faeries: The first thing we would like to say about this card is – for those of you living in the Northern Hemisphere- rejoice in the fact that Spring is just around the corner. It probably feels like Winter will never end, but the faerie in this card is waving his wand around to remind you (and the birds) that spring is coming. It might look like he’s scolding the birds out of the garden, but he’s actually yelling at them to get back to work. The birds play an important role in bringing in the Spring. Their songs help to activate all the plants and animals to wake up and come to come out of hiding.
The second thing that we want to say about this card is that these obstacles you are encountering right now in your life are not there to defeat you. These difficulties and hardships are just a very small part of your story. They help create the coming narrative that involves triumph, joy and new adventures in your life. There are many wonderful things that are beginning to unfold for you. It’s hard to feel it right now, but it’s true.
If everything was great 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, would you really have any sense of gratitude or appreciation for your life? Most likely you would not, because what would you have to measure anything against? You live in this three dimensional reality that is encapsulated in duality. This is simply how it is.
So here is a tip for you: The sooner you accept reality exactly as it is, and the sooner that you accept the bad with the good, the more easier it is for you to navigate this world of yours. Also, stop blaming everything and everyone for your problems. Being a victim all the time is stopping you from moving forward with your life and your personal growth.
So, quit your whining and get up and do something. Winter is a time for lying around and being lazy – that time is coming to an end. Move it!
We say this all with love.
