Card of the Day- July 27, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the Fairy Tale Tarot is the 'Nine of Pentacles' and the card shows us the story of ''The Boy and the Dancing Fairy''. The story is about a kind boy who receives a magic box containing a dancing fairy from an old man. The fairy grants his wishes, first he wishes for a pleasant place to find a companion. He wishes for many things, and gets married to a beautiful princess. When he gets old, he leaves the box in the woods, as the fairy could not grant him youth or free him from death. This magic box signifies possibilities. Magic works when you are kind and compassionate. It is this love that can be passed on to the next generation. Experiences bring you wisdom. This a good time for you as you will soon experience good days ahead, and struggles are over. You can prolong good fortune by being kind and compassionate to those around you.

Card of the Day - July 26, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the Healing with the Fairies oracle deck is 'New Opportunity'. There is a new opportunity going to come your way. Be open minded about what comes in your life, as it could be something very unexpected. Do not question it, or wonder if you deserve it. You are worth it and of course you need it, that is why it has come in your life. This opportunity could be an unrealized dream, a wish or something you have thought about casually. Do not let it slip by, and grab it, as you are one of the few lucky ones.

Card of The Day - July 25, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the Fairy tale Tarot is the Princess of Wands represented by the story of Tatterhood. You can read the story HERE.  The Princess of Wands is a very strong, outgoing and wild and free girl unlike a regular princess. Just like Tatterhood, you need to stop being vain and delicate and adapt her qualities of honesty and kindness. Clothes, jewelery and other materialistic things are not all the things that make the world go round. Look for beauty in even the ugliest of things. All that glitters is not gold. What you already have , has much higher value in someone else's eyes. Value the things you already have. Be strong and fiesty today, and don't be afraid of being yourself.

Card of the Day - July 19, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the Healing with the Fairies oracle is 'Make Music'. Music has the ability to heal the soul. People sing to their babies and to plants and animals. Also, music therapy is a very well-known form of healing. Anytime you feel low, listen to your favorite song, switch on the radio in traffic and see how less irritated u feel driving in peak traffic! You can elevate your moods depending on the type of music. To feel mellow, listen to some soft music or classic symphonies, to get in a romantic mood listen to ballads or love songs, to get energized listen to rock music. Every note activates a different emotion and mood. Play with music, as that is what energy is made up of, sound and vibrations.

Card of the Day - July 10, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the Fairy Tale Tarot is the Seven of Pentacles represented by the fairy tale of 'The Golden Goose.' The golden goose represents special qualities you possess like magical abilities and talents. You are not ordinary. This card is a reminder that something about you is magical. Just imagine what you want, and you can fulfill your dreams. Don't allow your perceived limitations to stop you.

Card of the Day - July 9, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the 'Healing with the Fairies' Oracle cards is 'Problem Solved'. What a relieving card this is! We are always worried about something or the other. At all times, there is always a lingering problem hovering over us. Sometimes we start questioning ourselves and our paths, and sometimes we get sleepless nights about how to deal with a situation. You need not worry as the fairies say that whatever problem you are facing will be solved very soon. Just leave your problems to them and believe in the Universe. The card shows a fairy holding a snake in her hand. It does not seem like a problem to her and has it wrapped around her arms and fingers. Treat your problems in the same way. They can be tackled and managed. They are larger in your mind, than what they really are.

Card of the Day - July 7, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the Fairy Tale Tarot is the Princess of Pentacles represented by the fairy-tale of 'The Princess and the Pea'. I have always loved this story. Today, you are free to treat yourself like a princess. Splurge, spend, indulge and treat yourself to whatever you desire. It is necessary to recognize earthly delights as an important component to well-being. Do not deny yourself pleasures like a beauty spa treatment, new clothes, new shoes or a pampering pedicure. Though expensive, they are worth the pleasures they bring you. You need to maintain a spiritual and material balance in life.

Card of the Day - July 6, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the 'Healing with the Fairies' cards is 'Awakening Your True Self '. In the daily routine of our lives, we sometimes forget who we really are. What is our true self? The true self is the self we were when we were born. Do you remember how you were as a child: innocent and curious? naughty and mischevious? Where is that part of your self gone? We keep on changing every moment, and as we experience new things and become wiser, we lose our innocent self. Today make it a point to be curious, inquisitive and childlike. Remember what you used to love doing and try and recreate some aspects of that in your present life.

Card of the Day - July 5, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the Fairy Tale Tarot is the 'Two of Wands' depicted by the fairy tale of 'City Mouse, Country Mouse'. This story shows two points of view, the city life and the country life. The country mouse wears an apron, lives in a humble home and is actually very happy and content. The city mouse is full of pretenses, wears a suit and hat and only pretends to be happy. Which mouse are you? The moral of this story is, the grass is always greener on the other side. Do you envy your rich and gorgeous friend? Do you keep cribbing about your small apartment? You do not know what others are missing in their life unless you look deep within. Everything is not as it seems. Learn to be happy in your present situation. Somebody might be envying your life without you knowing it. Count your blessings.

Card of the Day - July 4, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the Healing with the Fairies oracle is ''Honoring your True feelings''. What are you really feeling? Are you happy in your current situation or do you need a change? Honoring your feelings means listening to your inner voice. Is your intuition telling you to go ahead even if logically it seems silly? Do you feel like taking a break even though you need to be working hard at this point? Listen to your feelings as they know more than your logical mind does. The more you honor them, the more they will help you make important decisions. If you ignore your feelings, they will start fading away, leaving you with only your brain to make practical decisions.

Card of the Day - June 3, 2012


Today's Card of the Day from the Fairy Tale Tarot is the King of Wands depicted by the fairytale of Aladdin. You have the ability to make your wishes come true. Just call upon the Genie from within. Use your mental intuitiveness like Aladdin and you will be able to overcome all your obstacles. Aladdin, like the King of Wands is fiesty, active, a man of smart words and great ideas. He is also a risk taker and an adventurous boy. Learn the qualities of Aladdin by reading the story.

Card of the Day - June 2, 2012


Today's Card of the Day is from the 'Healing with the Fairies' deck and as a part of 'Fairy Month', I will be removing cards from this deck and The Fairy Tale Tarot this entire month. Today's Card says ''Be Honest with Yourself''. Honesty is the best policy and the best person to be honest with is yourself. It is no point portraying a fake exterior, when we are truly not happy from inside. We can fool the world, but can we fool our self? If you are not happy, accept it and do something to fix it. Are you living a lie that makes you feel guilty every time you look into someone's eyes? The fairies say that like them, be honest, free and loving beings. In the card, a fairy with beautiful wings looks at her dragonfly companion. She has realized her true self and is being completely honest. Are you?
