I was given a new deck for my birthday. Brian Froud’s “Heart of Faerie Oracle”. It has been on my wish list for some time and it did not disappoint. (although I can’t see anything Froud-related disappointing)
I have been doing readings for friends with this deck and absolutely love it! So needless to say, I chose to use it for this week’s reading.
I decided to do a three card, past/present/future spread.
Interestingly enough, the topic of manifestation has come up quite a bit lately. Ellen Dugan is publishing a new book entitled “Practical Prosperity Magick”, due out in June. The timing seems right, as many of us are trying to find ways to manifest finances via our creative endeavors.
The Magician reminds us that we can convince ourselves of anything if we put our minds to it. But without the work behind the intention, we are simply wearing a mask and creating Faerie Glamour. When the glamour wears off, we have to take responsibility for the situation we created and the circumstances we find ourselves in.
Have you recently come to the realization that not everything is as it seems? Do you project an image to the outside world that is not in alignment with your truth?
This card goes well with The Magician as it also talks of Faerie Glamour. Oftentimes, gifts from the Fae are not what they seem. But in this case, she is holding a very precious, very REAL gift for you. The gift of wisdom.
What can you learn from your past mis-steps? What knowledge can you bring forward to help you move on? What have you done to make changes in your life? What can you do now to ensure that you do not slide back into previous patterns?
“If you are willing to acknowledge the journey you have taken and the lessons you have learned, then accept her gift, freely given and richly deserved.”
When we move through challenges, we have the opportunity to learn amazing lessons. But we have to be open to that. In order to grow, change has to take place. Are you willing to change? You have the tools you need and are about to find the path you are meant to be on in order to move forward with your life. But you have to be willing to take the first step. It’s rarely as frightening as we often lead ourselves to believe.
Now. Take another look at the cards. Do you find any messages there? Does one of them leap out at you, demanding your attention? Feel free to sit with them for a minute or two and see what they have to say.
