Card: Three or Autumn – from the Fairy Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.
“Follow your passion when it comes to what you do professionally. If your heart is in your career, then it will shine like a beacon through your work. You can make a successful living through your creativity! You’re drawn to what will bring you joy for a reason, and that in turn will lead to abundance.”
Message from the Faeries: The fall is a time to harvest and get ready for the long winter ahead. Start thinking about how you would like to spend the slow moving cold season that is approaching. Will you hibernate and close yourself in? Or would you like to be more active this winter? What do you want?
This week, it’s time to set the tone and pattern that you would like to carry through the winter months. If you want to have a more physical routine, it’s time to start going to the gym or getting more exercise. If you want to eat healthier, do it now. If you want to be more creative and spend less time on your phone, then you better get to it.
The energy is just right for you to get into the good habits that will carry you through in the future. We also recommend sitting down and writing out your aspirations for the next 6 months. Meditate on it and put lots of positive thoughts into it. Your attitude this week is going to have a large impact on the next few months. It’s important to keep your thoughts and words in check.
Be passionate about what matters to you the most and the rest will fall into place.
We love you,
Card: Five of Swords – from The Fountain Tarot by Jonathan Saiz.
“Tainted Victory – Victories get polluted when your personal integrity is compromised. Nobody actually wins in this scenario, and the backlash can be horrible. Make sure you are paying attention to the whole picture. Broaden your vision and honour your principles. It will pay off in the long run.”
Message from Erin: This past week was a bit of a stressful one for me. It was very busy at work, and in the midst of the chaos, I got into an argument with one of my coworkers. I really hate conflict, and it was challenging for me to keep my anger under wraps. Even though I felt I was in the right, and had to stand up for myself and other coworkers, I did not feel like I came up a winner in my battle. It feels awful, for me, to argue with someone.
However, despite the fact that I didn’t “win”, I gained some understanding of myself and other people. The truth can be harsh and uncomfortable. And my truth is really important to me. I don’t need to be right all the time, but I need things to be just and fair. If someone isn’t being fair or just, I need to stand up to that. That’s my truth. I am willing to be the loser in a scenario where the truth needs to be told.
And so, this week I want to reflect on this card. It’s okay to go into battle and come out the loser, especially if it’s for something or someone that you feel is very important. But ask yourself: is this battle worth it? Is this the sword you want to fall on? Are you willing to lose? What is the price you are willing to pay?
In the grander scheme of everything, when when I’m looking at all aspects of my life, I can ask myself: is this worth it? Am I willing to fail or succeed for this? Discernment – it’s a very useful skill to learn. I hope to gain this wisdom. Maybe you want it too.
I love you,
Card: Ace of Wands – from the Circle of Life Tarot by Maria Distefano.
“Intuition is the sister of reason. Both must be developed without giving preference to one or the other.”
Message from the Faeries: While we find the words that come along with this card to be interesting, we would like to expand upon them by saying that intuition and reason are not a duality, they are bound together like this faerie and bird in the egg.
All great artists, writers, scientists, architects…anyone who creates something spectacular…doesn’t rely on just their intuition or just their reason, they rely on both, to execute their accomplishments. On top of using their skills and hard work, they are great alchemists that are able to create something fantastic using the magic of instincts and logic. Try to find the balance between of your ability to use reason and your ability see things that are invisible to the naked eye.
Trust in yourself! Think of the egg in this card to be the philosopher stone that will allow you to create the life you want for yourself, and to achieve your creative goals. You were born to do this. When you were a child, hatched out of this egg, you had the natural abilities to combine reason and intuition. This current reality you live in favours logic over gut instincts, and therefor most of you have a distrust in your sixth sense. When you learn to trust your instincts, you will accomplish many great things, and become the alchemists you were meant to be.
We love you,
Card: III Empress – from the Voyager Tarot by James Wanless, Ph.D.
“The Empress, symbolizing the law of preservation, is the guardian of life. Standing before the earth, she represents your charge to protect it and that lives…Life is a miracle. The Empress honours and respects all of life for its inherent richness and beauty.”
Message from Erin: I was so not surprised to pull this card for us this week. The Empress – the divine feminine – has been a reoccurring theme for me past few weeks. This feminine energy has been coming up a lot in conversations I’m having with some of my close women friends.
Why is the Empress showing up? Well, the first thing I want to say is that if you plan to work with the faeries at all, you will become very familiar with this strong feminine energy. The Faeries have a deep love for all of life. While they do have an affinity for humans, they will will fiercely try to protect all life on this planet. So this protective female energy is felt by me all the time.
I get the sense that the Divine Feminine is coming up for a lot of people right now, for both men and women. This energy can be quite challenging for some. It’s demanding that all of us to be more respectful of life – to all living beings. It’s asking us to have some deep and honest conversations with ourselves and each other – How are we protecting and honouring life? Are we? What happens if we don’t?
We are feeling and seeing the direct results of us and our ancestors not protecting and honouring life. We see it with climate change. We see it with people reacting to injustice when governments don’t respect and honour life. We feel it in the tensions we experience in our relationships with one another. The Divine Feminine is calling us every day into action. I pray that we all find the power within ourselves to answer the call.
I love you,
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: 21 The Faery Who Was Kissed by the Pixies – from The Faeries’ Oracle by Brian Froud and Jessica Macbeth.
“The presence is the Faery Who was Kissed by the Pixies suggests giving and receiving love and intimacy in any of a wide variety of relationships. She gives notice that this is a time to open and heal our hearts. Different aspects of life may well be flowing happily together, healing separations and hurts from the past. Bonding may take place and deep feelings emerge. Changes for the better may occur in all aspects of life, but especially in relationships, which may be deepening and becoming richer. You may be experiencing love therapy for opening the heart as new relationships begin and old ones develop. Enjoy!”
Message from Erin: My heart jumped for joy when I pulled this card for us this week. I love this card so much. It brings me tears of tremendous happiness. What a blessing to be visited by this faerie.
This is such a healing card. Just yesterday I was writing deep soul connections, and how often it is past trauma between two souls that bring people together in this life. These karmic relationships are the real work in this life.
If we can heal these relationships, then what is left between two souls is only love. Souls bound by pure love, healed of trauma, are those very rare deep connections where you feel only an unconditional, unpossesive love for someone. How special and magical is that? Imagine a life where all we had was were these kind of deep soul connections. I pray we all have that kind of love in our lives.
I love you,
Erin (and the faeries)
Card: Body Movement – from the Healing with the Fairies Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“Your physical body has its own life force and intelligence, and it’s part of the same elemental kingdom as the fairies. It’s both childlike and demanding, as well as mature and insightful. This card indicates your body’s wisdom, and asks that your body’s need for exercise and movement.”
Message from the Faeries: With all the important work you’ve been doing, a way to keep your energies level up is by getting a bit of exercise every day. It doesn’t have to be anything extreme, it can just be going for a little walk or dancing for a few minutes in your living room. The thing we recommend most is doing some stretches and working on your core strength.
Another great way to keep your energy levels up is by eating well. This means different things for different people. You know your body best. Avoid eating foods that make you feel unwell, tired and sluggish. Keep those high energy foods around for snacks at all times.
Also, it’s important to get the proper amount of rest and sleep. Again, you know what works best for you. Whatever you need to feel rested up. Try to stick to a routine. As we said last week. It’s really import to stay focused right now.
We love you,
Card: Seven of Sky – from the Mystical Cats Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone.
“Because of too many distractions, you are in danger of losing something valuable to you. Consider where you choose to put your time and attention if you want to accomplish your objectives. There also may be something going on behind the scenes that you have been too preoccupied to notice. Pay attention.”
Message from the Faeries: We hope that you’ve had fun the last few weeks, going on adventures, meeting new people and trying out new things. It’s good to let yourself let loose and do something different from time to time.
This week it is time to change gears. It’s time to sit down and get to work. It’s time to set a new tone to your daily routine. It’s very easy to get distracted by even the most boring and mundane aspects of day to day living. That’s why we asked you to do some fun new things the last couple of weeks. We want you do something else new this week. We want you to start a new routine.
Take a moment at the beginning of the week to reflect on what matters the most to you right now. What are you being distracted from? How are you allowing yourself to be distracted? After you figure out what you really need to be focusing on, try to come up with a plan to get it done. If you have to, come up with a schedule, or think up a new pattern of behaviour and actions, to ensure that you are able to be successful at your goals.
It’s time to come up with new ideas and new ways of thinking. The old patterns and behaviours are no longer serving you. We know that new things can be frightening or intimidating, but if you’ve done something new, as we instructed, then you will have learned that new can be fun and exciting. New is almost always well worth the try.
We love you!
Card: Discovery – from The Faerie Guidance Oracle by Paulina Cassidy.
” Be prepared to nurture the seeds of discovery. Pay attention to your actions and reactions. Know what it is that you’re looking for. The smallest, simplest things can become revelations when discovered for the first time. It doesn’t need to be something new to the world or to anyone else. Its only requirement is to be new to you. You will see a more fulfilling purpose in life as your field of experience through the journey of discovery broadens.”
Message from the Faeries: This week’s message is a continuation of last week’s. Last week, we asked you to go outside more. We asked you to step outside of your comfort zone and to engage with the outside world.
This week we want you to take things a little further. We would like you to try something new. It doesn’t matter what it is. It can be anything, really. It can be something small, like trying a new food, or it can be something huge, like making friends with a stranger. Whatever it is you decide to explore, we hope you do it with much enthusiasm.
Why is it so important, right now, for you to going out and trying new things? Why now and not next week or next month or next year? To that we ask: Why the hell not right now? Now is the perfect time, and there is nothing else to it. What you do right now, impacts what you do tomorrow and the next day. It’s all about setting your tone and vibration for what’s coming next. We want you to be primed and prepared for your future!
We love you,
Card: Cordelia – from the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue.
“Being cooped up is not the natural way for inhabitants of this exciting planet to live. Believe me, there’s plenty to see and experience when you exit your four walls and roof. A daily venture outside will not only revive your spirit and soul, it will give you hope and faith in this planet’s very existence and future…Don’t let another day go by without stepping outdoors into this most entertaining and exciting of environments.”
Message from the Faeries: We love our Faerie goddess, Cordelia, so very much! She brings so much joy and and beauty to our lives. Without her, summer just wouldn’t happen! We hope you are out there enjoying all of her hard work.
We’ve been observing this growing trend amongst a lot of you of staying inside. We understand that you love the comforts of your home, and all the distractions that can be found there. We also sympathize with your desire to spend time alone, in the safety of your space, away from the complexities of interacting with others.
While we think that spending time at home and alone can be great for your mental health, and sometimes it is essential, we also think it’s imperative for the survival of humanity for you all to get out there more and engage with the world and each other. We’ve watched humanity moving towards a more antisocial species in the last 100 years, and it’s wreaking havoc on not only social structures, but also on the environment.
We don’t want you to feel pressured or guilted into going outside. We wish deeply in our hearts that you will go out more into the world (work doesn’t count) because you have a desire to connect with other human beings, bonding with others and also the world you live in. We want you to really live!
We love you,
