#Fairy #Tarot #Friday ~ June 5, 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.

Doreen Virtue numbered the Minor Arcana cards to comprise 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: Three of Summer

Happy Full Strawberry Moon! In the Northern Hemisphere, the Algonquin tribes in New England chose this name for the full moon in June because this was the best time of year to harvest the strawberries that grew wild in the area. (Moongiant.com)

There’s a lot going on in the world right now so if you need to pause and take a break from the chaos, do that. Practice self-love and take care of you and your family.

I feel the energies of the universe swirling around me today, so I gasped in surprise when I selected the Three of Summer card. This card in Fairy Tarot is equivalent to the Three of Cups card.

Notice the three frolicking fairies in the card? They are celebrating their wonderful fortune with a dip in the cool water. It looks like they are having a marvelous time!

Consider the number three and its meaning in this card, as well:

The Meaning of the Number Three

When the universe plays beautiful music, it’s time to dance. When life presents you with joyful news, it’s time to celebrate. The Three of Summer is a card that celebrates friendship, sisterhood, and creative collaborations.

Yesterday, my daughter, Amy, shared that she and her boyfriend, Joe, had decided to get married sometime this summer. Apparently, my delightful news colored today’s card selection!

But, wait… do you have news worth celebrating? Any weddings, graduations, or births in your future?

You know, this is also the perfect time to celebrate the friends you cherish. Embrace this moment as a drop in the ocean of all the blessings the universe holds in store for you.

With some creative social distancing, you can get together with your friends to spend some quality time. Those of us on the blogs do that often through social media: FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger. Be creative.

This together time, when you give and receive love and encouragement to and from your friends, is the most important part of this message. Embrace this full moon energy. You’re here to do important things together!

Remember to tell those around you how much they mean to you. Spend time with family and friends. Your words will be warmly embraced, and your truthful intentions will be honored.

Don’t forget to experience gratitude for all these gifts which bring happiness to your soul. Be thankful for this opportunity.

Additional Meanings of this card: An impending wedding. Becoming pregnant or giving birth. Vibrant health. Becoming part of a close-knit community or “chosen” family. Embrace the love.

    Congratulations to your daughter! It’s good to hear good news. I wish them all the best!

  5. Well yes it is summer now – I know this only because I actually fireflies in the wee hours of June 5th.

    Congratulations to you and your family. We have a few birthdays in our family this month. Tempered by the recent death of a friend (not due to Covid 19). We are also happy to now be in the Yellow stage – so we will get to dine (though only outside) at a restaurant with friends this evening.

    1. Fabulous, Jules. I hope you had a marvelous time dining out. In Arizona, the numbers of infections are exploding, so we’re staying home and being safe. I’d love to see the fireflies again. Such a lovely mind image I have of them flitting through the grasses. <3

      1. “They” are thinking of starting schools here early just in case they have to close them again. You stay safe! We are only in Yellow and it could take months before we go Green. Without I hope reverting to Red again.

        Mine actually light up my back yard trees! 😀

    Congratulations on your daughter’s upcoming wedding! My son is also getting married this summer so we get to be a pair of wedding mothers.

    Good reading. Repeatedly this message has come up and I can’t help but think that despite this rough human transition we are setting up for better times. Energetically we are there. Physically and emotionally we need to stay the course and practice loving kindness.

    Hugs!

    1. Congratulations to your son! Great news, for sure. I feel that way as well, Charli. It is with love and compassion that we will be able to lift our way out of this mess. It’s always darkest before the dawn. We’ll get there with time and perseverence. <3
