The future, past, and present with Faeries

*This post contains an ad link.*

The Faeries of the Future card was the pull for today's Faery Friday.




This card is pretty simple in its interpretation, but it requires a closer look at the intricate artwork by Brian Froud.

Therefore, I'm not including a photo of the accompanying crystals for a meditation on its message. A closer look at the card is needed.


The easiest way to break it down is to look at the direction figures are facing.
The title of the card would suggest that the future is the focus, and by sheer numbers you'd be right. The majority of the faeries on this card are facing right, indicating a forward outlook.



Next, take a look at the tiny faces that are actually peering or pointing back...


The Gnome King at the lower left points forward. His large belly represents a strong intuitive instinct. He is absolutely sure of the way.

The top of the card shows us the split vision of the Gnome of Now,


 seeing the past and future at once.


On closer inspection, we see that the anchor figure in the bottom of the illustration is poised in a dynamic balance;


 her eyes glancing backward, torso upright, forearms held out, and right leg moving forward. This is a great overall summary of the theme of this message.

The Faeries of the Bright Future aren't here to grant wishes. 
This card is about the future and making our desires come come to fruition, but we aren't getting there in a pumpkin carriage this time. 
If it's going to happen, it's only by assessing the past, staying grounded in the moment, and trusting our intuition and guidance. And as you can see, there are many Future Faeries in your corner.

Transformation & Alchemy with Nelys

*This post contains an ad link.*


Ch-ch-ch-chaaaaanges!
Nelys the Alchemyst is here to transform the base into gold!
Today's oracle card is about transformation.
When she's here, things are about to change for the better.✨


Hold up, though-
Before you start buying fancy bags to hold all that gold, it's important to know that alchemy is about inner change as much as outer change. Things can't happen outside unless they change inside. As above, so below.
You gotta purify. Crucibles aren't always pretty, and burning away the metaphorical soul crud isn't always fun and games.

 Crystal grid meditation~ Amethyst for purification, malachite & labradorite for transformation (and maybe a little citrine or imperial topaz, & gold if you are trying to manifest a lil sumpin').

Should I stay or should I go now....Indi brings indecision to Faery Friday

 *This post contains an ad link.*

One look at this Fae and you sort of understand what this card is all about. 
From that pained look to the way those orbs are being handled, the energy coming off of this being is back and forth and fleeting and all over the place. 
Now, take a look at the head on which Indi is standing...
Yup. You know the feeling. Indi may look slight in stature, but there is a heavy, heavy pressure on the head below. 
If Indi shows up in your reading, it's time to pick one or the other. You may need to get out a paper and pen and make a good old fashioned pros and cons list, because your fence sitting isn't helping anyone, especially you.

However, if Indi shows up reverse in a reading, it may mean that your indecisiveness is warranted. You need more facts and time to make a proper choice. Be patient and the right choice will make itself clear. 


The crystals shown are for meditations on clearing the mind and easing emotional stress, which can help us to make better decisions.

Top to bottom:
Fluorite
Amethyst
Citrine (clearing solar plexus and stimulating creative solutions and confidence)
Lepidolite

Faery Friday- ✨A Fairy Godmother ✨

                                                                                 *This post contains an ad link.*

 The card for today's Faery Friday doesn't even need much explanation. Everyone has heard of a Faery godmother, whether it's from fairy tales or guardian angels, the belief that there is someone stationed to watch over you and bestow blessings and good turns is almost universal. 

The point I'd like to make today is that she's always around and ready to help us. However, it's not our worth or even effort that determines what help we get. Sometimes, with all of the suffering and pain in the world, we feel we don't deserve extra help. But if you are in a position of extraordinary grace, it puts you in a place to help others even more. Everyone is worthy of love, and you are loved. Remember that. 


Stones for meditation on this card:
Labradorite ~ Transformation, Synchronicity 
Sunstone ~ Joy, Good Luck
Smokey Quartz ~ Removal and transformation of negativity

Faery Friday; The Sage

*This post contains an ad link.*




🌿 Simplify to understand the complexities. 🌳

Today's card is from the Froud Faery Oracle deck, and for me, corresponds with the Hermit of the traditional tarot.
He represents a time to turn inward and retreat for wisdom and inner knowing, deep contemplation tempered with compassion and a willingness to learn.

If he shows up reversed in the reading, 
it might mean that wisdom or information is being hoarded or withheld.
It can also be a reminder that the ego is blocking us from learning what we truly need to learn.
Information used to prove rather than discover is a perversion of the Truth.
To turn the Sage right again, remember
a wise man knows he knows nothing at all and keeps an open mind.


Crystals pictured;

Howlite~ awareness
Kyanite~ meditation, balancing 
Scolecite~ understanding, connection

Giving and Receiving with the 6 of Pentacles ✨💚✨


*This post contains an ad link.*



 No matter where these little ones show up in a reading, if they are right side up, it's a good omen. Pictured here we have the 6 of pentacles, or coins. They represent the earth element, the physical  manifestations in our lives. On this card from The Linestrider deck by Siolo Thompson, we see some adorable creatures instead of the traditional wealthy man giving alms to the poor beggars.

However, the scales are still present and this is essential to the concept that giving and receiving is a balance. The universe, God, fate, whatever you wish to label it, gives abundantly. If one wishes to hoard those blessings, the scales will tip and the stockpiles will fall to the ground anyhow. 





 This card is is reminder that our finances, talents, and time are gifts to others and we can bestow them generously. 
Here's the hard part-
We are also allowed to accept these gifts from others. 
This can be difficult, sometimes. We are often shamed into silence when we feel we need assistance, or that we are not as deserving as others that may need it more than us. 
Take this image and remember that everything is a balance.
There will be times you are the abundant bird, and times you are waiting for seeds of blessing to fall upon you. There will always be new ways of satisfying your needs and helping others. 

The universe is limitless, so are you. ✨💛✨


~Pictured:
Clear quartz points~ amplification of focus 

Green Aventurine~ abundance & healing

Pyrite~ prosperity & protection
Buckeye nut~ good fortune

Losing (and finding !) It; Faery Friday Ilbe the Retriever

 Life can be messy, and so can people.
Our physical organization skills vary from person to person, situation to situation, and from day to day.
Keeping your metaphorical shit together can be even harder.
We let things slide to piles in the back of cupboards and closets of our minds.

 When Ilbe shows up in a reading, it's a hint that something we thought lost will turn up again.
Think of him as the Fae director of the lost and found. (Oh, and he may put some things in the lost pile for safe keeping if you're too busy to tend to them, only to let you find them at a more appropriate time.)
This object that returns might not be in the best condition, it could maybe use some polishing up, but it's still here.
He thinks we still have a shot at it. Don't give up. Just be open and let it show up.
 There are tons of stones to focus on luck and rekindled desires/hope-
just a couple pictured here;
Rough emerald and serpentine.
