1 ~ BAT ~A rebirth is assured~
After something has run its course and died or been released, finished, surrendered, completed, or ended, there is a promise of a new beginning. Rebirth is assured just as night gives way to dawn and the bat emerges from the darkness of a womblike cave. Bat Spirit has come to remind you that this rebirth is a miraculous one, for the very best elements of what you had to give up in the death of the old, are still present in this new, amazing life forming now. This is the miracle and magic of rebirth in every aspect of your life, including the rebirth of faith in your ability to establish new and healthy relationships. Bat Spirit reminds you that at present, you are in unknown territory and may feel as if you are lost. However, you are called to trust that your intuition will be a reliable guide as you give birth to something new and unfamiliar. Bat Spirit has listened in the darkness of night and has heard all your hopes and dreams, your fears and worries, and assures you that this new version of your dream—this move from darkness into light, from lost to found and death to rebirth—comes to fruition with Love at its core. Bat Spirit asks you to trust that what seems to have died is actually shape-shifting into something even more meaningful and wondrous than before. If you feel you are in the dark, know that come morning, all will be revealed, and things will be in a new form that is right for you.
2 ~ LIZARD ~Dream the world into being~
When was the last time you basked in the sun and allowed yourself to daydream, to imagine what might be and who you might become? Lizard Spirit appears when you are called to let your imagination flow and dream something new. Inspiration is available to you now if you are willing to slow down and let your eyes close a little, allowing ideas to dance in your head. What might come into being if you were to pursue your dream? How might you grow and expand if you allowed yourself to dare to believe in the impossible, making it possible first in your dreaming mind and then in the world as you co-create with Spirit? Give in to the power of imagination and soon your dream will become clearer, the steps will reveal themselves, and what was ephemeral will begin to coalesce into form. Dream it and be it—Spirit asks you to dare to dream big.
3 ~ DOLPHIN ~This and that are true~
Focus on the positive, for light exists alongside the darkness. Dolphin Spirit calls for you to come up from below and enjoy a weightless moment in the sun as you dive in and out of this and then that, accepting and even enjoying the duality of life. Why not join Dolphin Spirit in acknowledging and affirming the blessings present in this moment? In all areas of your life, there are aspects of both “this” and “that.” Today you can celebrate this fact and recognize the complexity and the beauty of the fabric of the universe. You are at a place right now where your past self is still present as you move toward the new self you are becoming. Aspects of both selves are present, so even if you want to say goodbye to what was, you are required to find solace in this “between time.” Today is not a day to choose one over another either, but rather to accept things as they are without judgment or resistance. Even in matters of the heart, duality is present. Your next action will be obvious when you drop your bias and see things as a whole.
4 ~ COYOTE ~ Trust in divine detours~
Do you find that you are being led on a strange detour in your life right now? Does it seem that what appears to be the next right action and the right choice, best situation or fabulous relationship unexpectedly turns into the opposite—or just disappears into thin air, as if you’ve been tricked? Coyote Spirit’s trickster energy is designed to bring you into situations to teach you lessons you have forgotten to learn. Perhaps you need a taste of failure before you experience success, a need to feel disappointment before you can truly appreciate the joy, love, and prosperity that is coming up for you. Perhaps you are revisiting a pattern you forgot wasn’t in alignment with the life you are intending to co-create, being reminded that gratitude, not complacency, will keep you awake and aware of all that is available to you in this moment. Coyote Spirit reminds you to laugh about the unexpected twists, to develop humility and gratitude while releasing your attachments to the form of your desires. Even when you suddenly find yourself on a detour, wondering when you will get back on track to manifesting what you desire, remember that Spirit has a plan and wants the best for you. Trust in divine order now. Coyote Spirit is a divine helper; no matter what seems to go astray, things are exactly as they are supposed to be.
5 ~ Come Together
Fairies like to be busy and a group of them is showing you that many hands make light work. Working as a team helps get the job done.
A group of fairies have come together to show you that working as part of a team can make any task feel fun – and the time will fly by! What’s more, a team of happy humans can be super productive. Teamwork can also be very rewarding and help each individual to feel valued and uplifted.
We have our own unique set of skills that we bring to the table, and combining this with the talents and ability of others can form a mighty workforce indeed. Working together can be a bonding and supportive experience and also sets an example to individuals who have yet to join forces. It’s also the foundation upon which communities are created.
Perhaps you tend to work alone, either out of preference or necessity. This can be important for particular types of work, such as writing, but the fae wish to show you another way; even when you work alone, you can call on your fairy friends to help inspire you and this can help to get the work completed.
If you know someone who could do with a helping hand, reach out and let them know that you care and are there for them should they need you. People are funny beings and often feel shy about asking for help, so it’s time for you to take the initiative – and that includes reaching out yourself if you need it.
6 ~ Inspiration
Be prepared, as you’ll soon receive a visit from the Fairy of Inspiration. Come dusk or dawn, she can call at any time.
The Fairy of Inspiration is full of ideas and will gladly share them with you. All you need to do is be receptive to her whisperings. She may plant the most fantastical ideas in your head, but remember you always have a choice, so if any idea doesn’t resonate for you, then simply let it go; it may be meant for someone else. When an idea does resonate, however, go with the fairy flow and trust where it may lead. Sit back and enjoy the fairy ride of fun and creativity as you transform inspirational ideas into reality.
Perhaps it’s time to plant your own seeds – your own ideas. Take a sip from this card’s helpful fairy and plant your seeds of inspiration in fertile soil, allowing them to grow using positivity combined with practical action.
Call on this friendly fairy whenever you feel you’re lacking inspiration. To connect with her, go outside and just be in nature; or, if you’re unable to get out, meditate on a photo in nature or visualize a place you have been that brings you peace. Allow your senses to perceive the beauty all around, and set your intention to allow inspiration to flow.
7 ~ Transformation
This fairy tells you go surrender to a transformation in your life that’s happening for your highest good. Embrace your transformation – the best is yet to come.
The caterpillar has no idea it’s about to transform into a beautiful butterfly. The Fairy of Transformation has flown into your reading to remind you that you’re transforming, or are about to transform. Change can be challenging, but it can also be exciting as you witness your own beautiful transition into a new you. Wherever your current circumstances, know that things are changing and transforming for time highest good of all.
The Fairy of Transformation wishes to remind you that change can be more amazing than we could ever imagine. When we let go and surrender to the natural changes that occur in our lives, the process of transformation can be a beautiful experience. Change and transformation can also have a ripple effect on those around us. Sometimes people resist change, making it an unpleasant and painful experience, so seeing you willingly transform, with love and trust, may have a super positive influence on their personal experience of transformation. This fairy tells you which parts of yourself and your life are ready to transform, so follow her lead and allow, trust and flow – all is well.
8 ~ Moon Energy
Surrender to the natural ebb and flow of life. If you’re feeling confused, this fairy comes to calm emotion and reassure you that peace of mind is possible.
We are all effected by the Moon, wether we realize it or not. Perhaps you feel especially tuned in to the Moon cycle right now. The fairy of Moonlight often appears when we have too many thoughts or are feeling confused. You can call on this fairy to take away any concerns or inspire you to come up with solutions to challenges you are facing.
Working in harmony with the Moon can enhance any efforts you’re making to manifest something in your life. The New Moon phase is the perfect time to plant the seed of a wish you may have. As the Moon grows, waxing through its phases, so too will your wish. The Moon’s waning phases are best for releasing anything that no longer serves your highest good, such as unpleasant thoughts, health issues or people who aren’t right for your life.
When you place a crystal in moonlight it will absorb the magical moonbeams, which can then be used for fairy spells. Clear Quartz is particularly good at absorbing the Moon’s energy and will help to amplify many things in your life, from health to finances. Amethyst is good for increasing spiritual energy, while rose quartz helps to enhance love.
The Fairy of Moonlight also sends inspiration to you to write down your thoughts, poetry or songs, or even to write a book. Writing down what’s in your head can be very therapeutic. Don’t censor your thoughts: once the words are on the paper you’ve symbolically released then from your mind. You can then bury our burn the paper to release fully your cares, worries or concerns. Even more powerful during the full moon.
9 ~ Meadow ~Vulnerability~
You are in a place now where you can take risks with your feelings, and even more important, take risks with the truth of who you are – the truth you know in your heart and soul. You no longer need to be subjected to your conditional fears of letting others know who you really are. Yes, others may judge, evaluate, criticize, and perhaps even put you down. These are very real possibilities. Yet by trusting that you have the strength to deal with these reactions – rather than responding adaptively and always playing it safe – you can more confidently allow yourself to be vulnerable. Always holding back from expressing your truth can create an illusion of safety, but armed with your trust and your faith, you can choose to be vulnerable and share your authentic self with the world.”
10 ~ Gaia ~ Nurturing ~
Receiving can be a sacred act when your intention is to honor Spirit. It is as holy as giving when performed with a humble and open heart. This is even truer when receiving much needed nurturing, so let others give to you. It may be a stretch to do so at times because of childhood conditioning, but that habit can be overcome. Your wounds can be healed. One way to achieve this is to nurture yourself, and allow others to nurture you. Consider the actions that you take that are self-nurturing. What really comes to mind when you think about doing beneficial things for yourself? Set aside your ritualized habits and beliefs that restrict the pure act of allowing your body, heart, and soul to be nurtured. Lie on the Earth and ask Gaia to rock you in her bosom as you breathe with her and relax into her living care.
11 ~ Green Man ~ Synergy ~
You have the advantage of an incredible synergy at this time. A flow of Life is guiding you, where things just seem to fall into place as you move about your business. You are in a mutually cooperative interaction with Spirit, as your will is aligned with the will of Spirit, and your mission is congruent with your sense of purpose. When this is happening, there is a synergy, a way that your life force is continually coming into balance with the forces of Nature. There is also a synergy between your spiritual awareness and your personal self, or ego. Be aware of the various idiosyncrasies of your ego, and do not take any of them too seriously. Know that your Higher Self is always looking out for your best interests. In this cycle, tune into that guidance, however it shows up, and you will find that you move through Life with greater ease due to a synergistic balance of forces expressing themselves as you.
Spirit is constantly sending you messages on your path. Keep an eye for number patterns, repeated number sequences, animals, dreams, there are messages everywhere. As you become in-tune to this energy, your connection to the universal energy flow deepens.
12 ~ Winter Solstice ~Reflection~
Review the past year and ask yourself what the most important lessons you have had to learn are, what you have accomplished, and what dreams and visions you want to manifest in the upcoming year. Whether it has been a relatively smooth ride or a challenging series of events, acknowledge your experience as being the work of Source, no matter what your judgements, fears, or joys are. Honor whatever has happened over the previous several months with gratitude as forgiveness. Then let it go. Allow yourself some solitude so you can spend some quiet, slow time in reflection. Once you feel complete, reflect on your present life, especially focusing on what you are grateful for. When you are finished, consider what is to come— all the different possibilities and potential that exist before you. Allow your imagination to roam without limitation or ambition, and see what shows up. Notice how you feel in your body with whatever scenario plays out in your mind. These are previews of that which is gestating, and can manifest and grow when cared for properly. Patience and stillness is called for her, for just as the Earth cycle have their own pace, so does this cycle.
13 ~ Uranus ~Revolution~
How can you harness the power of group consciousness by joining up and participating in something much larger than yourself? Uranus riles brainstorming and blue-sky thinking. Who can you call on to mastermind your situation and help you come up with an as-yet unimaginable solution to your current conundrum? There is an opportunity now to break on through the boundaries of self-imposed limitations and build something brand new from the ground up. Embrace the exhilarating sensation of throwing caution to the winds of change, and crafting a vision that embodies your highest ideals.
14 ~ Aries ~The Firestarter~
Aries means it’s time to push the pedal to the metal and move forward, fast. There’s no time to waste considering how your actions may impact others; the iron is hot and it’s time to strike. Making mistakes and breaking things is part of this process. There’s no shame in getting it wrong. This is how you learn to play harder, faster, stronger. The podium awaits, the gold medal has already been etched with your name. Go for it!
15 ~ Cancer ~Doula~
The Cancer Card is asking you to look at the balance between giving and receiving in your life. How much caretaking have you been doing, and where have you perhaps forgotten to exercise some tender loving toward yourself? We’ve learned that it’s good to give, but when our own reserves are depleted we can wind up becoming resentful of the very people we want to help the most. In the coming days, make space for things that fill your own cup. Cancer is here to remind you that self-care is never selfish.
16 ~ 8th House ~Intimacy~
Your bluff is being called. It’s time to show those cards or strip off another layer and reveal what’s underneath. The stakes may feel too high, but ultimately this call to a deeper level of vulnerability and intimacy shows you are ready to stop playing small. The opportunity, should you dare accept it, is to feel like the winner who takes it all! As you prepare to bare, remember that beneath the layers of conditioning is what we connect with our unbreakable diamond core. The nucleus of our nature. And that nothing and no one can take what is essentially and eternally yours.
