1 ~ Hope
Hope is always there, even if we can’t see it. Optimistic expectations can help change a negative situation into a positive one.
The Fairy of Hope flies in to remind you to believe in hope, for it’s the key to the door that can lead you away from your current predicament. No matter how hopeless things may seem, if you look deep inside your heart your spiritual heart-wisdom will reveal a glimmer of hope and this can lead you to a brighter future. This fairy tells us always to stay full of hope, because positive thoughts and beliefs can literally change your future.
On this card we can see a rainbow — a symbol of hope — and the dove of peace flying towards the fairy shows us that hope and peace often come together and that anything is possible. Sometimes we just need an extra boost, so the fairies fly in on the wings of the dove to let us know that they’re with you while you experience difficulties.
Remaining hopeful while those around you are full of doubt and negativity can be extra-challenging, but remember that hope comes from deep within our hearts and is an excellent habit to cultivate. Heart-wisdom and hope will see you through whatever is going on for you and those around you right now, so have courage and trust — the Fairy of Hope walks hand in hand with peace and miracles.
2 ~ Life Energy
The happy Fairy of Sunshine brings lots of life giving energy. She reminds you to shine your light and reveal anything in the shadows that needs to be healed.
The Fairy of Sunshine comes work an abundance of life-giving light and energy. Perhaps you’ve been feeling shy or lacking in confidence? If so, this golden fairy says it’s your time to shine!
Sometimes we hide our light for fear of being seen and feeling vulnerable. This is quite normal, but it serves us neither spiritually nor physically. Light also exposes any issues lurking in the shadows that needs to be healed and released, allowing this process to happen. Once these issues are revealed, there’s no need to dwell upon them anymore: recognize and release them, then move. This process is essential for spiritual growth. Radiating our natural light makes us feel good, and it can inspire others to shine their inner light too.
Maybe the Fairy of Sunshine is saying you need to get more vitamin D from sunlight— perhaps a mini-holiday to a sunny location is just what the Fairy of Sunshine ordered!
She may also be telling you that if someone feels like a ray of sunshine in your life, keep them close; or she may be calling you to be a ray of sunshine in someone else’s life.
Sunlight is healing but too much of it can be harmful, so on a practical level be sensible when you sunbathe and use sun protection made from natural, ideally organic, ingredients to protect your skin.
3 ~ Lost and Found
What was once lost is about to be found, thanks to the Lost-and-Found Fairy. Sometimes she can help us find things we never even realized were lost!
The Lost-and-Found Fairy collects lost treasures and keeps them for a rainy day, revealing them when they’re needed most. She is attracted to shiny things and often keeps company with magpies and crow, for they too have a keen eye for things that sparkle – if you see these birds, this fairy is probably nearby.
If you’ve misplaced something , either materially or spiritually, call on this helpful fairy to find it. She will often leave little hints, tips and clues. She may remind you to be practical; for example, if you’ve lost your keys, retrace your last steps in your mind – where were you and when you saw them last?
This fairy often appears in autumn and wintertime. In autumn, animals often bury foods ready to sustain themselves during the colder months, and seeing them do this could be a sign to stash away the things that will sustain you, too, during this period. These could be material thins such as food and money — remember she is a very practical fairy! Or you might stash away cherish memories inside your heart and tap into them whenever you need a spiritual boost.
The Lost-and-Found Fairy also reminds us that it’s ok to lose things: perhaps you never really needed them anyway, or their time and purpose has been served.
4 ~ Stargazing
When you gaze at the stars you give yourself fairy-focus. Your intuition will flow more freely and reveal what you need to know about the situation.
This card says the answers you seek is in the stars. This can literally mean looking up into the night sky and stargazing. Stargazing is like a form of divination: allow yourself gaze to drift around the sky and see what flows into your mind. Fairies can be very active when the stars begin to appear and and shine upon their surroundings. This also applies to you, except the Star are illuminating your current situation so that a solution can be more easily seen. Stargazing can bring about a deep sense of peace and also to help you to put things into perspective. Look how tiny the stars appear to be – yet this is only an illusion. Conversely, perhaps something in your life appears to be bigger than it is in reality?
Do you have an interest in astronomy? If not, this card may be saying that it’s time to explore this area. The insight you seek may also be found in astrology. This may be in a daily horoscope, or it could be the perfect time to have your own birth chart created so you can see the energy currents at play in your life. This doesn’t mean you have to change your life, but being aware of certain astrological patterns can be helpful as you move forward.
5 ~ Magical Blessings
Whatever you’re going through, you’re being assisted by magical fairy blessings. The fairies say you can bless others too.
To receive fairy blessings is an honour, and right now the fairies are bestowing their blessings upon you and your current situation. Fairies blessings are magical and can also be healing. Only you will know what form these blessings take.
You can ask the fairies for their blessings at any time; perhaps you have a job interview coming up, or a challenging situation at home. To do this, close your eyes and speak from your heart, explaining why you feel their blessings would be beneficial. Then wait. Patience is a virtue when hoping for a message or a sign from the fairies, and remember they will only bestow blessings if it is in their will.
It’s important to acknowledge the fairies’ blessings and give thanks. The fairies are also reminding you that you can bestow blessings on others. Also to count your own blessings and to focus on the positive aspects of your life.
6 ~ Acorn’s Invitation
~Touch, Exchange, Connection~
This card represents a beautiful man: physically appealing, earthly in nature, well in body, healthy is sexual appetite, who has a strong association with the archetype of Robin Hood or Robin Goodfellow. He has something of the faun or satyr or Pan about him, and while he is a man, truly, he is also there to help his woman by loving and honoring her physicality. A unique aspect of the faery realm is that it honors both the Goddess and the God. Faeries teach us to be vital, to be healthy, and that part of this is to glory in our physical selves and our physical desires. This faery man is not talking about a kind of base physical gratification, a filling up of a void, an appetite sated. He is speaking of true, communal, healing, loving touch. As his finger caress the earth, so he respects and loves the woman, the feminine, the mother, the crone, the maiden. He reminds us that when we touch something, we are in communion with it. We are at one with it. Touch is an energy communion, and an exchange between two or more people or beings. No one can touch and be left unchanged. When we touch with faery fingers, super sensitive and fully aware and conscious, we experience the sublime, and make better choices about who we touch — and who touches us — and why. Massage. Love-making. Earthy sensuality. Touch therapies.
7 ~ The Secret Path
~An irresistible pull down a distinct path, Ley lines, Mystical Traditions~
You may be reluctant to start on your path: refusing to understand your connection to sacred places, feeling they are irrelevant, not understanding the song of the land and how it is sung in your own blood, fearful of meaningful pilgrimage and joyful creative play on your journey. Feeling that going uphill is too hard, rather than a source of deep riches. Fearing what lies beneath, as you may have experienced fear based conditioning about what lies under this sacred earth. Confusions and misunderstandings regarding direction. Feeling alone on your path and uncertain about sharing your path with others, or creating magickal experiences with others.
It’s time to step out of that comfort zone. Get out and dance freely in nature. Feel the connection all around you. Ley lines, walking meditations, building or walking a labyrinth, and journeys to sacred sites are what you’re being called to help open your awareness to this beautiful energy all around you.
8 ~ Snail’s Pace
~Slow down, Grounding, Listen for the heartbeat of the earth, Subtle energies~
The faeries can see beneath the “shell” you present to others and they know too that you doubt your own impact and influence. But they look upon you tenderly and they wish for you to take this time to slow down, find your own pace and place in the world, and to go your own way. This faery’s appearance signifies oh-so-strongly that it’s time for you to find the path that is your own. While others may see you as lazy or even slow and a little foolish, that is none of your business. It is time to slow down, to check your pace and find your rhythm that feels best to you. And know that you have a faery guardian watching over you, happy to see you moving into your own energy, time and space. You can be lonely at times and need to be aware of your surroundings. Your hard shell protects a sweet and soft being. You leave behind silvery beauty, an energy stream that is discernible to those who are sensitive – as are you. Do not confuse slowing down for a time of stasis, as from this soft contemplation of a gentle pace, you will create anew. When you observe the creative forces that you have mustered together and released into the material world, you will realize that your thoughts have created the tangible reality about you. What do you see that you love? What would you like to incorporate into your life? There will soon be many choices. For now, please work on nurturing, protecting, and loving yourself by keeping a slow and gentle pace. Pay attention to what is happening in each moment. Listen to your heartbeat. Feel it echo throughout creation.
9 ~ Storykeeper
~Tell your story, Legacy, Write your wisdom~
The Storykeeper faery will write down what you speak to her of, so it’s time to seek the wisdom in your story, and change the patterns and twists that have repeated themselves. Carve out an original tale for yourself; create it from your dreams and adventures. It’s time to tell of who you are. Share your story. Recognize that you are a record keeper – what is it that you wish to gift your ancestors with? Think of the generations to come and live your life as you would wish your story to be told. Bring what you dream of into reality on a daily basis. Tell the best story possible to yourself about your life; writing is therapeutic. Be original in your storytelling! Live your life imaginatively, boldly and magickally.
10 ~ Greenman’s Door
~Portals to Faery, Wheel of the year, Galactic and Gaian entry points~
Turning off the natural doorway points and refusing to walk through. Thinking you may be unworthy, and thus saying to yourself, “Perhaps later, perhaps another time, perhaps when I am wiser, better, when I have studied more”. Fearing what may lie within the world behind the portals and doorways. Disconnected from the earth cycles and the galactic cycles. Feeling a lack of meaning and magick about you, through allowing yourself to be disconnected. Too much “civilization” disconnects ya. ‘It’s time to turn off the electric lights and wonder into the twilight to find your magicks again. Choosing the “wrong time” to enter the realm of faery, thus believing that the door is not opened to you; alternately, banging or pushing on a door and demanding to be let in cannot work with faery. Only timing, coming from the wild heart, and allowing will open the door.
11 ~ Bountiful Harvest
You have access to the infinite source of love and resources provided by Mother Earth and the Universe. There are no demands, requirements or conditions that affect your ability to access this supply. This is a wonderful reminder and the absolute truth pertaining to the abundance that is available to you. Grant your abundance opportunity to flow into your life. It will reshape your perspective. It will strengthen and nourish you. This phase holds a plentitude of affluence and fertility. You are lucky and blessed.
12 ~ Keep Your Dreams Alive
Start to identify plans and actions that will lead you to achieve your dreams and goals. Your dreams can become your reality. This is a time when you need to be able to apply detailed planning in order to manifest your dreams and realize your goals. You need to remain focused on the practical side of things. Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. It is easy to be distracted by more ideas and concepts. Keep focused on what is realistic and achievable. Your common sense and pragmatic approach will lead you to a solution that actually works. Begin taking steps that will bring you closer to your dreams.
13 ~ Make a Wish
As a child, you may have been encouraged to blow on a dandelion and make a wish. As you blew the seed blossoms from the stem, they would be carried on the wind so your your wish could be fulfilled. This card is a gentle reminder to set clear intentions about what you wish for in your life. You’re being asked what you would like. At this moment, anything is possible. If you were given one wish, what would you wish for? Trust that your wish will be granted at the most opportune time and in the manner that supports you in the fullest.
14 ~ Breakthrough
Feel confident that things are falling into place. Just as the seedling breaking through the surface of the earth, you too are going to experience an emergence. The efforts of your hard work will become evident and you will begin to see the difference all of the labor and time you have invested has made. Count your blessings! You are gifted with a creative touch and the ability to generate new and wonderful things. Take a moment to feel proud of yourself for all that you’ve accomplished.
15 ~ Renewal of Peace
It is important to maintain peace with all aspects of your life mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Inner imbalances can often manifests in your daily life if you don’t make time to take care of yourself. It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re imbalance is a negative one. Being optimistic to the point of believing yourself to be invincible can also lead to challenges. Balance is best achieved through listening to your body. Take time for yourself. Allow your inner power to heal and return to being peace-filled. This will assist you and make you stronger.
