#Fairy #Tarot #Friday ~ July 3, 2020

Welcome back 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: The Chariot

What a fantastic draw! Freyja, the wise woman’s apprentice picked this card today. She seemed to be a natural!

“The Chariot,” from the Major Arcana, signifies that you’ve done great work so far! Of course, you still have many priorities that you are balancing at the same time. It couldn’t be any other way. Be prepared. You may be called upon to keep control of more than one driving force at a time. stay centered, strong, and determined. I know you will accomplish your goal!

Remain steadfast in your sense of purpose, and don’t allow other influences to steer you off course. If you keep at it, you can accomplish far more than you realize.

This card also reminds us that it’s your moment to step into the spotlight. Drawing attention to yourself or your work can feel awkward, but it’s absolutely essential at this time for you to make this move. Don’t hesitate! Show people what you’ve got.

Be genuine and optimistic in your interactions with people and the public. Your excitement for your goals will shine through and your confidence will increase. Be proud of your accomplishments.

Notice the faery charioteer who leads two dragonflies. These magical creatures have the ability to go in any direction—and at amazing speeds! The fact that this faery can keep the dragonflies under control and headed in the right direction is a testament to her determination and skill. You possess these same qualities!

Additional meanings of this card:

Self-control. Victory! Celebrate what you’ve achieved. Accomplish your dreams. Modes of transportation, and work-related travel figure into this card, as well.

“Step Up and Take a Bow,” #Shadorma

stay centered
focused and driven,
celebrate—
it's your time
draw attention to your work
your confidence soars

  1. Pilgrimage Studio – My pilgrimage began with an interest in the cultural practices, customs, and traditions for wellbeing and healing across the world. Practices that are as old as time itself and have been proven by years of use. This interest resulted in a Bachelor of Arts in the College of Health, Human Services, and Science for a degree in Complimentary and Alternative health (which is relative to Holistic Health and Integrative Medicine) from Ashford University in 2014. At first it was an interest. And then it grew. Now, I share these practices with others.

Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
