Welcome to Fairy Tarot Friday. I’ve migrated this feature over from the Sisters of the Fey blog. Each Friday I’ll share a card from the Fairy Tarot deck by Doreen Virtue & Radleigh Valentine, featuring an uplifting message from the fey. I’ll also include a bit of syllabic poetry inspired by the card reading.
The Major Arcana contains 22 cards that describe major events and turning points in our lives (marriage, pregnancy, relationship and career changes, and overcoming personal challenges). The Major Arcana cards also represent the different phases from childhood to old age.
They number the Minor Arcana cards in four suits representing different aspects of human life: 1 (Ace) through 10, plus the four court cards (Princess, Prince, Queen, and King). The Minor Arcana reflects the day-to-day aspects of our lives and the people in them. Court cards represent either a situation or a person during a reading.
The Minor Arcana comprises four suits. In traditional Tarot they are; wands, cups, swords, and coins. In Fairy Tarot, the four suits reflect the seasons: Spring for wands, Summer for cups, Winter for swords, and Autumn for coins. In Angel Tarot, the seasons represent the four elements: fire = spring, water = summer, air = winter, and earth = autumn. Consider these elements in relation to the Fairy Tarot as well.
The divinatory meanings are given for upright cards only—this tarot is not intended for reversed readings.
Once you get to know the fairies, you’ll see they are strong-willed environmentalists. They get perturbed at people who mistrust animals or the earth. Never lie to a fairy. Instead, help them take care of the planet and other living beings. Do your part. Your actions will richly reward you, and the fairies will encourage you in amazing ways.
With all the news around the world sounding the alarm about the spread of the coronavirus, I tried hard to block out all the chatter. After a long meditation, I drew the Princess of Autumn, an earth card.
This princess is optimistic and happy. She’s also charming, reliable, upbeat, and rather clever! Doesn’t this sound like you?
I bet you have a passion for learning. Guess what? You’re in good company. But don’t be fooled… a mischievous streak runs through this princess. Be on the lookout for that to manifest in your life, as well. Like you, this little fairy is a joy to be around. She’s also responsible and a wise soul.
The Princess of Autumn signifies that a part of you loves to learn, while some of you might assume the role of the perpetual student; too shy about getting out on her own. This princess has a tendency to think things through way too long before acting.
Never fear. When you finally make your move, everything will flow into place as planned. Do you need a push to get started? Maybe this is the message you’ve been waiting for so you can finally get past whatever has been holding you back.
Suddenly, the books or knowledge unavailable to you before are now wide open. Embrace any knowledge you’ve gained through rigorous study. You’ve done the hard work, now is the time to reap the rewards.
Maybe your message for the day is that it’s time to go back to school? Take advantage of any study and research opportunities. If you can, attend seminars or courses even if they are online. Be prepared for some good news about finances!
