Faerie Card Reading for the Week of June 19 – 25, 2017 


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) 

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of May 1 – 7, 2017


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

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of October 31 – November 6, 2016

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. 

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of March 14 – 20, 2016

  
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,

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of February 22 – 28, 2016

  
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.

The Faeries. 

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of December 21 – 27, 2015

  
Card: Four of Fire – from the Mystical Cats Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone. 

“Mundane practicalities will not fully feed your spirit. Make time for wonder, beauty, magic, and connection to the sacred. If you have a ritual or spiritual practice, give it more time and attention on a daily basis. If you don’t have such a practice, it may be time to create one. Look for the light.”

Message from the Faeries: One of the reason why Christmas time and the holidays can feel so magical is because you give yourself a break from humdrum of your day to day life. If you think about it, you also perform certain special rituals this time of year. You might cut down a tree and decorate it. You might light special candles. You specially select or make presents and wrap them. You cook special food for family and friends. These rituals are what make Christmas magic.

This magic, of course, is enhanced by all the love and well wishes that is shared this time of year. It is so wonderful that so many of you take this time of year to be with loved ones and share in ritual. Your ancestors have been doing this for a very long time, and it’s a very important part of the year-cycle. It’s the best way to end a year and start a new pattern for the year to come. 

Some people like to downplay the importance of ritual, and some people have outright removed it from their life. We think this is unfortunate. Even if you don’t believe in God, Jesus, Santa or any religious anything, it doesn’t matter. Ritual is important. All your action carries an energy. Ritual is just a way of expressing your energy, or tone. The intention behind the energy is put into the physical which will create a reaction. It’s very basic science, really. 

While all of the gift giving at Christmas can be waived off as Capitalism at its worst, and there is truth to this, there is a greater force at work at the root of it – Love. Open your hearts and receive the love of this special time of year. Give love and receive love with big open hearts. 

Help set the tone for the new year, and try not to get too caught up in your inner child drama that tends to surface this time of year. Do you really want to ring in 2016 with your inner child having a temper tantrum? Go out and have fun over the holidays. Spread joy and good cheer. If you stay home, fill your home with good music and warm food. Comfort your soul with things you enjoy. 

Be like these magical cats in this card. Spread the love with your inner joy and have fun. If you feel the magic, let it shine.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Everyone

We love you.

The Faeries.

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of December 7 – 13, 2015

  
Card: Three of Wands – from the Paulina Tarot by Paulina Cassidy. 

“This majestic gentleman stands balanced on a stone globe as he considers new horizons. His two companions await his signal to move ahead to new ventures.”

Message from The Faeries: It’s time to do something new! 

This week it’s time to put on your thinking cap – not unlike the crown that the faerie in this card is wearing – and decide which kind of new adventure you want in your life. 

Are you wanting a new job? Are you looking to start a new relationship? Is there a place you’d like to go to that you have never been? Is there some project you’ve wanting to start? Perhaps you haven’t thought of starting anything new – well now is the time to do so. It’s time to wave your magic wand and create something new.

The first step in any new endeavour is a thought. This thought then develops more into an idea. Eventually it might evolve into a plan. Then the plan is taken into action. Then the plan turns into something real and tangible. Eventually the thought becomes a full on creation. How exciting is that?!

The big picture here is that just one thought can eventually become something real. So, what are you thinking about? What do you want to make real? Are you willing to do the work to make that thought into reality? It’s okay to be picky and choosy as to what you want to do, as you are going to have to make a serious time investment to put into it. 

All of you have some really amazing thoughts and ideas, but hardly any of them ever become a reality. There is so much negative self-talk that happens, that most of you end up talking yourselves out of some really great plans and creations. It really takes a brave heart to make your dreams come true. 

As a friendly reminder: Cut out the negative self-talk. Stop letting yourself down. Let your ideas grow and develop. It’s okay to have to start a plan and have it fail. You learned something important so that you can start something even better. 

Don’t be afraid to try something new. 

It’s time to get the ball rolling.

We love you, 

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of November 23 – 29, 2015 

  
Card: Three of Fire – from the Mystical Cats Tarot by Lunaea 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: This week is about taking a risk. Better yet, let’s call it what it really is – a leap of faith. It’s time for a leap of faith. Are you ready? 

Here’s the thing about leaps of faith – the key to success is complete trust in the Universe or God – you have to Trust. The most important Trust is in Yourself. Trust your own inner guidance and intuition.The other important part of us success is following through with your actions until it’s finished. You have to complete your action. 

So, let’s say that you’ve been tired of your job. You want something new. You’ve been thinking about change. This week it’s time to apply for jobs. Apply for jobs that you really want to do, even if you don’t think you have the qualifications the business might be looking for. After you apply for the job, follow up. Let them know how interested you are. Put yourself out there. How are you going to make change if you don’t take action? 

We know why people are often afraid to take risks. The fear of failure or rejection can be paralyzing. Most people have had experiences that have left them feeling bitter and disappointed. Everyone has had this experience. We say – don’t let this stop you from pursuing your dreams. Trust and know that things didn’t work out in the past for a reason. It wasn’t the right time or situation for you. 

In the past, whe you didn’t get what you wanted, when you wanted, you gave up on your dreams. You didn’t trust that everything happened for a reason and you gave up on your dreams. This time, carry it through. Let go of expectations and just let everything unfold. Trust. If things don’t appear to be going your way, don’t give up. Keep trusting. 

We want you to have the things you truly want. It’s worth the risks. You owe it to yourself. 

We love you. 

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of September 7 – 13, 2015

  
Card: Two of Wands – from the Voyager Tarot by James Wanless, Ph.D.

“White candlelight is symbolic of purity. Like the untainted white snow and impeccable white lotus, you are clean of character impurities. Purity, as the natural light of the candle, means being authentic and natural – be true to yourself without the contamination of outside conditioning. White light, the crystals, the window and lotus reflection represent purity of perception. See things as they really are, unhampered by prejudicial preconceptions. Pure white energy means living without artificial stimulants, chemicals and drugs. Pure, you are a window to others for seeing their path. Be a guiding light.” 

Message from the Faeries: Purity is such an intereting word. What does it mean to be pure? When we imagine pure, we imagine something in it’s wholeness. We imagine something in it’s true essence. When we think of you in your purity, we think of you undiluted. You are full and shining brightly in your naturalness.

Being pure doesn’t mean that you are clean, without a mark. Purity does not mean perfection. Perfecttion is such a funny concept to us. It assumes that something can be imperfect, and while this is an idea that some of you might subscribe to, we do not see anything as being imperfect. Everything is always perfect, always. Therefore, we never consider you to be impure. There is nothing that anyone can do or say that would make us see you as impure. We do often see you as diluted. 

What do we mean by diluted? How can you be diluted? When we see you in social situations, pretending to be happy when you are sad, you are diluting yourself. You are not showing your pure essence of who you are in the moment. When you dumb yourself down in conversations so that you fit in, this is diluting your intellect. We see you do it all the time – making yourself dull so that you don’t outshine others. 

There is nothing wrong with the practice of diluting your pure essence, and there is often some very practical reasons for doing this, but this week we ask that you not water yourself down in any way. Be your authentic self as much as you can. We know that we ask you to do this often, and we would like you to take it up a notch this week. When you are being your pure essence-self this week, we ask that you also try to keep your body, mind and spirit as pure as possible. 

This week we ask that you avoid eating processed foods, alcohol and drugs. We ask that you eat whole foods and that you try to get as much fresh and exercise as you can. Also, try to spend at least 5 minutes meditating in the morning, and smudge every day. After you do this for a week, we would like you to take note of how you feel? Do you feel better? Do you feel good? Do you feel pure? Are you diluted? Do you notice any change at all? This will be a good practice for the build up towards the New Moon, where you think about what life you are creating for yourself, on the 13th.
