Card: The Queen of Wands – from The Fountain Tarot by Jonathan Saiz.
“The Queen of Wands is never low on energy, warmth, or generosity. Her playful enthusiasm usually makes her the center of attention at any gathering. Some people find her intimidating, but to most, she is an inspiration. Despite all of the recognition, she is fiercely independent, guided almost solely by instinct. She is in love with life, and her feisty sound will ensure that any task is completed. She will not accept repayment for her gifts; her reward is watching others learn and grow.”
Message from the Faeries: We hope you find inspiration from the Queen of Wands this week. She is quite a remarkable person. Look at her glowing and twirling in joy. Why is she is full of life and light?! It’s because she believes in herself. She believes in her intuition. She believes in magic.
In case you forgot, you are quite a remarkable person as well. You are full of magic and you have the intuition that will guide you to the places you need to be, to the people you need to meet, and to dream up the dreams that will inspire others. You have everything it takes to weave amazing things into your life. You are creative and have so many valuable ideas.
We hope you see yourself in the card we chose for you this week. We you hope you recognize your abilities and can feel excited about all the possibilities that are being presented to you at this time. It is time for you to wield your magic wand and create greatness in your life and inspire those around you. You can be a beacon of light and hope to friends and family. We believe in you, and we hope you do too.
We love you,
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: Three of Wands – from the Tarot Del Fuego by Ricardo Cavolo.
“Practical knowledge, strength, enterprise, trade, compromise”
Message from the Faeries: The three wands depicted in this card are this person’s legs and support. Wands are the element of fire and represent your ability to create, and so this card is showing you that you have all of the creative foundational support that you could possibly need. As well, you carry the essential fruit of knowledge within you to excecute your creative ideas with precision, and the ghosts surrounding you represent fact that you have all the spirit (and spiritual support) required to get the job done.
This week has all the potential of success. You have everything you need to achieve your goals, it is entirely up to you if you want to achieve what you desire. If you are experiencing any sort of trepidation, then it’s best to work that out before you get started. Go in with the mindset that you will be able to achieve success. A positive mindset will go a long way.
Another thing that we would like to remind you of is that it would benefit you greatly, right now, if you were focus mostly on yourself and not so much others. That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t have a care. If someone is need then please help to the best of your ability, but otherwise you should try to not pay too much attention to what other people are doing if it isn’t your business. Focusing on other people is an indication that you aren’t wanting to take a look at yourself and that you might be ignoring your own behaviour. If you aren’t paying attention then you will have difficulty in executing any projects this week. Don’t forget to have a care for yourself.
We love you,
Card: Three of Fire – from the Mystical Cats Tarot by Linaea Weatherstone.
“It’s time to leave the safety of the known. Your next step forward requires some risk, but the rewards will more than make up for it. You’ve stayed in the dark long enough. If you want to find enlightenment, you must leap into the light.”
Message from the Faeries: Are you curious as a kitten? Are you a questioning cat? Are you an enquiring feline? If the answer is no, then you might want to consider turning that into a yes? Being curious leads to new adventures and takes you closer to your destination. If you had no curiosity, you would live a pretty dull and boring life. It’s your curiosity that then leads you to doing new things or trying something exciting.
The cat in this picture sees something that has caught her attention. She wants to jump up and see where the shining light is coming from. She’s going to jump at it without much thought. Cats are impulsive and sometimes this is to their detriment, but often it leads to something fun – or maybe the shining light turns out to be nothing. Either way, they aren’t afraid to jump in and find out.
The element of fire in this card is about a passion or a creative endeavour. Whatever it is that you feel drawn to or interested in this week, don’t be afraid to jump in a try. The odds are very much in your favour right now. If you are thinking about trying something new, just go ahead and do it. If there is someone you want to ask on a date, don’t be afraid to ask them. Just do it. You really have nothing to lose. Be brave and take the leap.
Whatever you decide to jump into this week will lead to something great. Everything is lined up right now to move you further down your journey. New endeavours will bring you to many opportunities further down the road. Even if you find yourself in a bit of a tricky situation after you take your leap, it’s still exactly where you were meant to be. It’s still a step in the right direction, even if it feels like a misstep.
Might as well jump!
We love you,
Card: Six of Wands – from the Circle of Life Tarot by Maria Distefano.
“In any contest, before defeat is met, there is always a moment to stop and think.”
Message from the Erin: Every once in a while, when I do our weekly reading, I pull a card that the Faeries seem pretty unwilling to give much information about. This happens to be one of those times! They insist that this is the card for this week, but they aren’t being very forthcoming with any other message, haha.
In my experience, the Six of Wands is a pretty great card to get, it’s a card of victory. It means that you get what you wanted and things will work out. Interestingly, the words that come with this particular deck and card give us a bit of a different message. The truth is, before either a win or a defeat, there is always a moment to sit and think about all the possible outcomes and make peace with whatever will happen.
I think this a pretty good message for this: win or lose, when you’ve already made peace with the outcome, it doesn’t really matter. Yeah, of course it’s great to win, but it’s also the process of trying to succeed that can the reward in itself. Sometimes when things don’t work out the way we expected them too, we soon realize that maybe we didn’t actually want what we thought we did, or we end up with something better.
The Faeries just told me: “There is no winning or losing, there is only winning”. We win no matter what. Whenever we think have lost we have actual won something that we didn’t know we needed at the time.
Keep on winning!
Love Erin (and the Faeries)
Card: Three of Wands – from The Enchanted Tarot by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber.
Message from Erin: Hi Everyone! I’m sorry the reading is so late this week. I’m out of town for a conference and for the first time since I started this blog I forgot to do a reading! The Faeries think this is quite hilarious and are pleased that I’m too busy having fun right now, and that I am shirking on my tarot duties. They think it’s about time I cut loose and enjoy myself. It’s been too long since I’ve let myself have fun. They are saying that everyone should be having more fun…but here is one other message they have:
“You are receiving the Three of Wands this week to remind you about how magical life can be. The three little faeries on this card are holding up the wands at the power of three in act of triumphant joy and pride. You hold that magic and power to create good things in your life and you should know that you deserve to make beautiful magic. Also, don’t forget to try and have lots of fun along the way. If you aren’t having any fun at all, then you aren’t doing it right.”
We are keeping it short and sweet this week!
We love you,
Erin and the Faeries
Card: Eight of Fire – from the Mystical Cats Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone.
“If you need to move, move! Restlessness and an itch to make changes in your life should be heeded. You may feel a sense of urgency to take action on something that you’ve been putting off. Use that impulse well. Take advantage of the blast of energy that comes from inspiration.”
Message from the Faeries: This week you may find that you have a sudden burst of energy and a wave of inspiration. Perhaps you’ve been feeling low in energy, or maybe you have had no desire to work on fun projects.
With the New Moon that has passed on Sunday, and the energy from the Thinning of the Veils this week, a new energy has arrived. Take advantage of this burst of energy and make the most of it. Let it charge up your energy reserves and get your juices flowing.
If you have been thinking about taking up exercise or taking up a healthier lifestyle, this week is the perfect week to do so as you will have enough will power and determination to get yourself started on a new pattern of behaviour.
Also, if you’ve been in a situation that hasn’t been feeling good or you are in a relationship/friendship that is very unhealthy and you’ve been looking for a way out, then this card is the sign you’ve been looking for that it’s time for you to leave. Have courage and do the right thing. You deserve only the best.
We love you.

Card: Princess of Wands – from The Enchanted Tarot by Amy Zerner and Monte Farber.
“An opportunity may be coming your way. You must balance your need to be rash and impetuous with the necessity of acting in a mature, steady manner. Wild at times and easily fired up, the Princess of Wands awakens us to the enthusiastic and spontaneous side of life.”
Message from The Faeries: It’s time to tap into your fiery side! Time to let your inner spark to light a flame within. No more sleepy slumbers of the winter. Spring is almost upon you, and so it is time to come out of hibernation.
Let the Princess of Wands inspire you this week. She’s a very energetic young woman who is full of passion and life. Always on the go, she doesn’t let anything stop her. Sometimes, of course, her fiery personality can get herself into trouble, but her enthusiasm can not be beat. She is often able to demonstrate to others that despite her exuberance, she has the best of intentions.
Pay no mind to what others think: This week isn’t about anyone else but you. Your energies have been lower than usual lately, and this week that is all going to shift. You have to do some of the work though. Be sure to get lots of fresh air and try to exercise a little bit. Go for short walks and move your body. Like the tree that’s been asleep all winter, it’s now time to get all your sap flowing. Soon you will blossom into your vibrant summer-self.
If you find yourself in the sunshine, bask in all of the Sun’s glory. Let the rays flow into you to help your inner fire to grow and give you life energy. We also recommend that you listen to some of your favourite music and let it inspire you to move. Get your blood moving.
Burn, baby, burn.
We love you,
Card: Seven of Spring – from The Victorian Fairy Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone.
“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.
