Faerie Card Reading for the Week of July 23 – 29, 2018

Card: Wolf – from The Wild Unknown Animal Spirit deck by Kim Krans.

“The Wolf’s mission is to uphold the well being and longevity of the pack. Healthy Wolf energy expresses itself through activism, mentorship, humanitarian efforts, or teaching…Contemplate the following: embrace all, exclude none.”

Message from Erin: Last week we got the Queen of Swords, with her Sword of Justice, and this week we get the Wolf. I feel like there is a much bigger message emerging for us this month. It feels like there is a global call to action for all of us. We are being asked to stand up and be leaders.

While this may sound like a pretty big ask of us, if you really think about it, you’ve been called into action many times in your life. Sometimes you feel compelled to stand up for what you think it righteous. What do you think you are being asked to do right now?

For me, I think about a conversation that I had with my dad on the phone today. I told him I was sick and tired in all the conversations I’m hearing in the world right now. We, as a people, are being divided and conquered by politicians and the media. This whole Left vs. Right thing is getting way out of control. I’m just so done with it! We are being played! Most of what is happening is out of our control, so wouldn’t it better to focus on the things that are happening in our day to day lives? How do we take care of ourselves and each other?

So what am I going to do about it? NOTHING! Haha! I’m kidding. What I mean is that I’m going to do my best to stop engaging in the dialogue as much as I can, and try to change the narrative when I feel I have the opportunity to do so. It’s just too toxic for me. So, I also want to bring the light more to this darkness. I’ve been playing in the shadows too much these days. Also, there’s too much hating going on. This call out culture and outrage culture isn’t really creating positive change, it’s just causing more division from what I can see. People who are in opposition often aren’t verbally communicating in non-violent ways with each other. I just want to improve my relations with friends and family, and community. Check in with people and see if they are okay, see if they need help.

As the Wolf says: Embrace all and exclude none.

I hope you all have a wonderful week.

I love you,

Erin (and the Faeries)

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of July 16 – 22, 2018

Card: Queen of the Thrones of Air – from The Hermetic Tarot by Godfrey Dowson.

“A graceful woman with curly hair stands amid a multitude of rolling clouds. The crest above her head is the winged kerubic head of Air. Across her shoulders she holds a large sword, and in her right hand she grasps the newly-severed head of a man by the lock of his hair.”

Message from Erin: I really relate to this card. For the past few years I have often imagined that I have sword resting behind my shoulder blades. It’s a Sword of Justice. Like the Queen in this card, I would deliver swift justice to those who have broken sacred laws. I have imagined myself holding my sword to those who have committed atrocities.

The thing about carrying this sword around is that there is a great burden. The sword is quite heavy and it can restrict your movement. Also, in order to use the sword, you have to become very cunning, relying solely on your wits and having to ignore the pleas from the heart. Because of this, I choose not to carry a sword, but I have respect and admiration for those who choose to wield it.

This week, we are being asked to choose our mind over our hearts. If you are feeling driven by your emotional body, pay attention to your feelings but try not to let them be the deciding factor for any big decisions or actions you need to take. Try to use logic and your intellect instead. It’s important that you are very precise with your actions and words this week. If that seems to difficult, it might be best to try to hold off right now on making any major changes.

I love you,

Erin (and the Faeries)

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of July 2 – 8, 2018

Card: Page of Pentacles – from the Shadowscapes tarot by Stephanie Pui-Min Law and Barbara Moore.

“The Page of Pentacles comes bearing her message for opportunities of growth and prosperity. She is lighthearted and joyous, and her spirit is entwined with everything around her. It is a small spark she holds, but she is just the harbinger for potential. Make of that spark what you will—a mere smoldering coal or the blaze of a rising star—but that choice and vision is something that each individual must find on their own, using skills and resources at hand.”

Message from the Faeries: We bring you this card this week to remind you that you are, just like the faerie in this card, pure potential. You already contain everything you need to accomplish your goals and to be successful in whatever project you are involved in.

We want to encourage you to go ahead and start any new creative endeavours this week, or to put more time and energy into existing ones. The time is ripe right now to move forward. The energy of pure potential that is flowing right now is there for you to take and use however you see fit.

The owl in this card is reminder that you also have all of the knowledge that is required for you to work towards your dreams and desires, and you can easily bring into reality that which you are trying to create. Turning dreams into physical reality is within your reach.

We love you,

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of June 25 – July 1, 2018

Card: King of Summer – from the Fairy Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

“The King leads a very rich inner life, often coming from a pursuit of spirituality. A humanitarian, he is honourable and quite chivalrous. He shows high integrity in relationships. However, he may come off as being a little intense sometimes. He’s been through a great deal, and his desire to protect you may result in paternal-sounding advice. The King is also a fierce protector of friends and family, so it benefit you to speak kindly of others in his presence.”

Message from the Faeries: Last week we showed you an example of the Divine Feminine. This week we are presenting you with an example of the Divine Masculine.

This Faerie King is a fine example of the kind and nurturing man who is able to express his emotions in a clear and gentle way. He knows how to give and receive love. He knows how to be in a healthy relationship and knows how to bring out all the best qualities in his partner.

We encourage you to try and see yourself in the qualities of this male. It’s okay to explore your male aspect. Have you ever encountered a man like this? We promise they exist! In fact they exist in all the men in your life. However, if someone is in alignment, you will recognize these qualities in them. How can you help foster relationships that allow the Divine Male to present itself? How can you foster those aspects to show express themselves through you?

We love you,

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of June 18 – 24, 2018

Card: Queen of Water – from the Angel Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

Message from Erin: Sometimes when I’m doing the weekly readings, the Faeries pick a card that I know is meant as a wink or nudge to me to then a opportunity for me to share a story with you all, or to give you my personal insight.

The Queen of Water from this deck has always really spoken to me. I love the imagery of this beautiful angel with the orcas and the stars above. For about twenty years now I’ve had dreams about whales. They are very intense and emotional dreams that have stuck with me for all this time. We have so much to learn from these beautiful beings. These dreams have always shown me that there is an intuitive bond between myself and others. They remind me that all living beings are connected to one another and that we all need each other to survive. More accurately, humans need to stop being so harmful to life.

I recognize myself in this card, as this tender hearted, empathetic, patient and loving angel. I probably don’t come across that way at all , haha, and that’s probably a result of a life full of adventures and heartbreak (the human journey!). My deepest self, minus the ego, is like this being. And I imagine that we all have this aspect to ourselves. We all have that kind and nurturing spirit within. I think this card is here to remind us that it’s okay to be tender hearted, and that it’s okay to love, even when it sometimes hurts.

I love you all.

Erin (and the Faeries)

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of June 11 – 17, 2018

Card: 20 Lady of the Forest – from The Heart of Faerie Oracle by Brian and Wendy Froud.

“The Lady is the Forest is the eternal feminine, the other half of everything. There is a bias toward the feminine in Faerie because Faerie is an intuitive realm, a place of dreaming, creativity, and imagination that we associate with the feminine. “

Message from the Faeries: The Lady of the Forest is the mother of us all. She gives life to all Fae. Like you, we need to the mother and father to come into existence. In Faerie culture, we feel a deep connection to the divine feminine energy and we have a deep love and respect for it.

This week we ask you to check in with yourself. How are you loving and respecting feminine energy in your life? Are you expressing your love outwardly in any way on a daily basis? Are you respecting the feminine energy within?

From our perspective, all human beings carry both masculine and feminine energy within. Some people are fortunate to be in balance with both energies, while we notice that the masculine energy is the more favoured energy in most human cultures. This has nothing to do with how people who identify as women express themselves in physical form. What we are talking about is how you treat each other in a daily basis.

We notice that people who identify as men are more readily respected and treated better. We notice that many women experience this preferential treatment externally and internalize it in self-harmful ways.

Try to show some kindness and gentleness to the women in your life, and to that feminine energy within. What do you appreciate about the feminine aspect? What do you love about women? How are showing your love?

We love you,

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of May 21 – 27, 2018

Card: Ace of Swords – from The Hermetic Tarot by Godfrey Dowson.

“Invoked power for good or evil. Whirling force. Strength through trouble. Affirmation of justice. Great determination.”

Message from the Faeries: In a world that is full of chaos and uncertainty, it can be easy to get swept up by your or emotions. One emotion that is easing to get tangled up in is fear. Fear is a force of its own. It is so powerful for the that it can take over and one can be easily lost in it.

There will always be events that occur in your reality that will evoke fear. Sometimes fear is a necessary emotion that will help you survive, but it then becomes an emotion that is clinged to when no longer needed. Often, fear is irrational and evoked by others in order to cause you harm for their own benefit.

We want you take this sword that we present to you in this card. Learn to use this sword of knowledge and discernment to fend off the fear that is not serving you. Don’t let fear manipulate and control you. If you know that other people use fear to try and control you, what are you doing to stop it? You own yourself. Nobody else own you and fear does not own you.

One more thing we would like to say: when you feel like your heart is too hurt or fragile to move forward, turn to the cunning of your mind and use logic to guide you to your truth. Use this sword to fight your way through difficult times.

We love you,

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of May 14 – 20, 2018

Card: Immortal Treasures – from the Kuan Yin Oracle by Alana Fairchild.

“Within you are precious immortal treasures, gifts of you soul, which include the ability that you have to transmit healing. Honour yourself as a healer. Whether formally or informally, your soul brings special healing light to humanity. You have divine support in your role as a healer, in whatever way, usual or highly unusual, that is unfolding for you now. “

Message from the Faeries: We chose the Mother Goddess of Compassion, Kuan Yin, to deliver you this week’s message. Kuan Yin says: “You all have the gifts of healing. Each and everyone one of you. Some of you already know how you can heal yourself and others. Some of you are just discovering what it means to be a healer. Some of you still do not understand what it means. Regardless, now is the time that everyone will be called upon to bring their healing gifts to the world.”

From our perspective, there is nothing that any of you have to try or do to be a healer. Quite sincerely, just be you and keep doing your thing. Don’t stress about being a healer. You will come about healing in your own way when that time is right. Just be yourself. Keep doing you.

What does a healer look like? Anyone! Everyone! You all get presented with opportunities to heal yourself or others. Healing can come many shapes or forms: kind words, a smile, a laugh, and tear from empathy. It is a pure act of love that comes from the heart. This act of love assists others to move forward on their journey.

We love you,

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of May 7 – 13, 2018

Card: Two of Spring – from the Fairy Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

“You’re off to a wonderful start. It’s as if you have the whole world in your hands! Choices about the short-term future now appear, and the most important thing to remember is that it’s safe to take chances. If you had every possible resource at your disposal, what brave new steps would you take? Evaluate the situation, and then move forward quickly. Many more opportunities are on the way.”

Message from the Faeries: Last week the King of Spring arrive to bring the blessings of hard work, dedication and creativity. This week’s card is the sign that things are moving along quite well for you right now. The outcomes of your efforts will yield positive results. Keep the momentum going.

This week we want to remind you that you don’t have to do everything on your own. You could form a partnership or a team. Or maybe you might need to ask someone to help you in some way. Sometimes it’s hard to share challenges with others, but you aren’t an island. You don’t have to carry all the burden. Maybe you just need a second opinion. We hope you are open to the idea of working with others.

There is an exciting energy that’s flowing right now, and we think it would be great for you to take full advantage.

We love you,

The Faeries

Faerie Card Reading for the Week of April 30 – May 6, 2018

Card: King of Spring – from the Victorian Fairy Tarot by Lunaea Weatherstone.

“This card can be used to represent a man in the prime of life whose power is generously shared with others. A natural leader, he motivates by example and charisma rather than by domination or autocratic action. His self-assurance can make him seem a bit arrogant to those who don’t know him well. If this card doesn’t represent a particular person, it can mean a time of powerful personal growth and the ability to influence others in creative and positive ways. In a nutshell: confidence, creative growth, empowering others, charismatic leadership”

Message from the Faeries: It’s so great that the King of Spring has finally decided to show up for you this week. His timing, as always, is perfect. Just when you were feeling tired and a bit low energy, this King shows up to give you the boost needed to carry on with your creative endeavours.

Being from the element of fire, this faerie King is a force to reckon with with. He will show you how to move forward with your projects with ease and grace. He will give you lots of inspiration and creative ideas.

Let the energy of Spring give you the energy you need right now to move forward with your dreams and aspirations. The time for rest is coming to an end, and higher energies will move in to give you a much needed lift. Take this energy and run with it,

We love you,

The Faeries
