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.
Doreen Virtue numbered the Minor Arcana cards to comprise four suits representing unique 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.
I’m late today with my reading because I took the day off yesterday. We had spectacular temperatures (only in the 80s F.) here in Arizona. We barbecued and spent some time outdoors on our patio. I even planted a few more seeds!
If this pandemic lockdown has taught me anything, it is to slow down and enjoy the precious moments the universe has given us. I’m writing again and pulling away from social media to accommodate my need for writing time.
I’m stunned by the current political environment and combined with the pandemic the entire situation is toxic! Take care of yourselves. When you social distance, apply some of that to social media, as well. You’ll thank yourself for the decision. Maybe that’s why this card asks us to make smart choices?
Today’s card, the Six of Spring, is from the Minor Arcana. The last time I selected this card was during the first two weeks of February. I chose it twice in a row.
At that time, we celebrated the Kansas City Chiefs super bowl win, and Bernie Saunders won the Iowa Caucus. In the second week of February, there were 813 total worldwide deaths from the Corona virus. Looking at that number compared to the current number of infected humans is mind boggling. Click here: Worldometer-coronavirus to find the current totals.
The Six of Spring usually signifies congratulations for a job well done. This is not the time to act humble. Instead, bask in the glow of your successes! Let people see the wonderful things you’ve created. Get ready for positive recognition. Woo HOO!
While you’re at it, be visible and vocal about your beliefs. Don’t feel afraid to say what’s on your mind. Show your unique talents and passions to everyone. As a role model, show others what is possible.
Wonderful news is on the way. This could be a promotion or even a fresh career opportunity. Maybe you will receive an award, since this card features a person of significant accomplishments.
Notice the unicorn. Unicorns represent purity of thought. The red rose petals scattered on the ground represent passion and commitment. Breathe in the energy of accomplishment.
Other meanings: Success. Receiving awards or scholarships. Standing in the public eye. An offer from someone very successful. Smart choices.
bask in your accomplishments
success is at hand
turn into a role model
show what is achievable
