#Fairy #Tarot #Friday ~ July 31, 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: Six of Autumn

The prosperous fairy in this card shares her wealth with those around her. Her kindness is admirable, so long as she is giving wisely.

“Look for an unexpected inflow of money. Don’t forget to share the success you’re blessed with. As you give to those in need, the universe gives back to you tenfold.” #Fairy #Tarot #Friday

Remember, giving doesn’t have to be in the form of money. Many people desire your time, more than anything else. Even in the days of social distancing, we can connect via social media with family and friends. Don’t forget to call your mother or father. They need to hear your voice.

Have you considered volunteering? Perhaps you have some rare insights to share with others? How about offering instruction in something you’re good at? The blogging world is full of opportunity!

However, be wise in your giving. It’s important to know that the organization you’re supporting is reputable and doing honest, good work. Do your research. Ask your god(s), the angels, or the fairies to deliver clear messages about which associations you can trust.

Meaning of Number 6

“The number 6 is a symbol of completeness. Number 6 symbolizes beauty and high ideals. It is a perfect number. The Pythagoreans acknowledged number 6 to be the first perfect number…”

Additional meanings of this card: Balance between giving and receiving. Providing what is truly needed. Sharing the wealth. Tithing. Money for college or continuing education.
