#Fairy #Tarot #Friday ~ March 27, 2020

Welcome to Fairy Tarot Friday. 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 cardsThe Minor Arcana comprises four suits representing different aspects of human life. They number the Minor Arcana cards 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.

Today’s Card

Eight of Spring

Wow… did I pick up on everyone’s mood or what? There are so many kinds of stress. This card reflect the kind that comes from having many wonderful things in your life at once!

Seriously, in the middle of stay at home notices and quarantines, please take the time to recognize your blessings! You may be juggling your family, your career and new opportunities, your fitness, maintaining your health, writing, etc. You just seem to have a lot on your plate right now. I get that.

Guess what? This is the card of successful multitasking. If things have been quiet for you, expect to see a big increase in traffic! Things will feel like they are speeding up. Make sure you complete all your tasks. If you can, delegate items on your to-do list. That will alleviate some of that stress you are feeling.

Be grateful for all the wonderful things in your life while you juggle them. You’ve got this!! Embrace your confidence and embrace any sudden events or rapid changes with a smile on your face.

The fairy in the card attempts to manage eight dandelions at one time. That’s a lot to handle… just remember, dandelions represent wishes that will come true. Are you ready?

Confidence Rising, #Shadorma

Stressful bliss—
manna from heaven
new balance,
for strange times
be grateful for your success
when wishes come true
