Weekly Card Reading, April 3 – 9, 2017

Before this weekly card reading, I spend time in meditation to “tune in” to the universal energy patterns which affect us all. This week, I called upon the Fairies to deliver messages to help us all live in alignment with our highest good, and for the highest good of the planet. This week’s reading was done using Doreen Virtue’s Magical Messages From The Fairies Oracle Cards.

The overall message that the Fairies have for us this week is to have faith that the situation is improving, and we need to take care of ourselves and stay positive. Things are going to go your way in the end, if you are able to do so. As much as possible this week, the Fairies ask that you spend time in nature, to uplift and nurture your body, mind, and soul.

Magical Messages From the Fairies: Everything's Okay, Healing, Healed, Healer, Flower Power

Monday/Tuesday: Everything’s Okay – “Don’t worry. It’s all working out in a beautiful way.” This week, the Fairies want to remind you to keep the faith because everything is going to work out for you – it just might take a little time. No need to get anxious or frustrated if things aren’t moving along as quickly as you’d like. This is Divine timing at work, as Spirit works behind the scenes on your behalf.

Wednesday/Thursday: Healing, Healed, Healer – “Healing energy surrounds you and this situation.” We may experience tensions in our relationships with others mid week. Stay calm and trust that the magical, healing energies of the Fairies are all around you. When you feel your emotional triggers being activated, remember that you can tap into this Fairy energy through your breath. Try taking three slow, deep breaths – inhaling the blue-green healing light of the fairy energy, and exhaling anger, stress, resentment, and guilt. Know that healing is happening right now, and that the situation will improve.

Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Flower Power – “Spend time with flowers and flower essences to increase your personal healing power.” This weekend, the Fairies ask that you make time to enjoy all the Spring flowers they have been tending for you. Time with the flowers builds your energy reserves up, and revitalizes your senses. Spend time outdoors in the garden, visit a park where the wild flowers are in bloom, or make a trip to a floral greenhouse. You can also harness the healing floral energies by bringing cut flowers into your home, or by spraying your aura and personal space with a floral essence or essential oil to bring the restorative power of the flower into your being.

 

Pineapple Sage, the Fairies, and You!

Pineapple Sage is one of my favorite plants to have in the garden. It is absolutely stunning when in bloom with its showy, bright red flowers. Pineapple sage attracts butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, as well as the delightful and endearing fairies who make their homes wherever this plant is found.

The Fairies of the Pineapple Sage are charming and fun loving. Their high pitched voices are lyrical and melodious. They possess personalities that are as sweet as the scent of the plant they are sworn to protect, and their tiny wings resemble in miniature the wing patterns of all the varied butterflies who are drawn to this plant. These earth bound celestial beings are avid adventurers and travelers, frequently hitching a ride on the backs of the hummingbirds that are attracted to the bright red flowers of the Pineapple Sage. Together, bird and fairy dart through the garden, small daredevils enjoying the thrill of being alive! These fairies are most active on bright, sunny days as they adore dancing in the sunlight.

These fairies love to help you orchestrate change in your life. Because of their adventurous spirit they are not afraid to try new things and visit new and exciting places. They thrive in the excitement of stepping into the unknown, and can inspire you to do the same. Working with this plant, and the fairies who tend to it can be extremely empowering.

Pineapple Sage has a feminine energy that you can use to tap into unconditional love and compassion. Pineapple Sage resonates with the energy of happiness, harmony, and hospitality – especially in the home. It also aids in communication to assist you with maintaining harmonious relationships. With its striking red flowers, and aromatic leaves they are beautiful as a cut flower you can use to bring its energy into your home.

This plant is wonderful to meditate with as it helps you connect through both your root and heart chakra, up into the heavens and with the Divine. Work with this plant and its Fairies to enhance your abundance and prosperity so you can be fully supported as you fulfill your life purpose. Doing so can aid you in gaining clarity into your finances and your attitudes towards money and receiving. They can help you release your prosperity blocks and develop your intuition in the areas of business and finance.

How to use Pineapple Sage:

There are many different ways to use Pineapple Sage. Here in San Francisco Bay Area it is fairly easy to grow and blooms most of the year. Pineapple Sage prefers full sun and moist, well drained soil. It is a beautiful addition to any garden, and I consider it a “must have” for a fairy garden, if your climate can support it. As with any plant, please be sure you have correctly identified it before consuming.

In The Kitchen:

Clip fresh Pineapple Sage leaves for herbal tea. You can also use them muddled in cocktails for a fresh and fruity alternative to mint. Pineapple Sage can also be used as an alternative to Culinary Sage giving your recipe a light, somewhat floral sweetness. The bright red flowers are also edible and make a beautiful addition to salads, fruit plates, and frosted baked goods.

In the Home:

Use in floral arrangements to attract the energy of the Pineapple Sage into your space. The energy of this plant promotes a joyful and harmonious home, supports manifestation, and promotes prosperity and abundance. Cut Pineapple Sage will also attract its Fairies into your space!

You can also make or purchase Pineapple Sage Flower Essence. You can add the essence to your bathwater or spray from a mister bottle to bring the vibrational energy of the flower into your aura.

For Meditation:

If you are able, it is a genuinely magical experience to meditate outdoors, surrounded by Pineapple Sage and the many fairies that will always be surrounding it. If that is not practical for you, there are many other ways to use this plant during meditation. I like to hold a handful of crushed leaves and inhale the plant magic. You can also simply hold a sprig of it, or bring a vase of cut leaves and flowers into your meditation space. You can also spray Flower Essence to cleanse your space prior to your meditation practice.  As you meditate, ask the Fairies of the Pineapple Sage to share guidance with you, and/or  hold the intention to bring into yourself the desired energetic assistance of the plant. You can also use the affirmations shared below, or make up your own.

Affirmations:

Tune into the positive energy of Pineapple Sage and the Fairies, and know these things to be true for yourself.

  • I have everything I need to attract prosperity.
  • I am abundance and abundance is mine.
  • I easily attract all the money I need, and have plenty left to share.
  • I am worthy of success.
  • I am magnetic to money.
  • Financial prosperity is mine.
  • As I pursue my life purpose I am fully supported.
  • I thrive on change and bravely step into new territory.
  • I am empowered to be true to myself.
  • I love and accept myself exactly as I am.
  • I allow others to be who they are, without judgement.

  • I communicate honestly and openly with others, and receive honesty and openness from others in return.
  • Through love, my heart is one with Spirit.

 

Fairies of the Yellow Woodsorrel

The fairies of the yellow woodsorrel are a mischievous and fun loving bunch. They love dancing in the dappled sunlight that filters through the shamrock leaves. The flowers and leaves of the yellow woodsorrel close up at night when their fairies rest nestled in the flowers with the petals wrapped tightly around them like warm, snug blankets. During the day though, the flowers are open and if you are quiet and living in peace with the Earth you can hear their high pitched fairy chatter as they celebrate nature with the ringing of these floral bells.

Fairies of the Yellow Woodsorrel

It is very difficult to relay eye witness accounts as those who have interaction with the Fairies of the Yellow Woodsorrel frequently can only describe their interactions with them as indescribable or intoxicating. Sightings are most common in the morning when the fairies are out drinking their brew – a lemony flavored mixture of the floral nectar mixed with the morning dew. Humans can make a similar beverage from this plant by using the fresh or dried leaves and flowers plus spring water to make a tea, which when chilled is a bit like a lemonless lemonade. (This plant should only be consumed in moderation as it is high in oxalic acid and potassium oxalate and should not be used at all by people with gout, rheumatoid arthritis, kidney stones or kidney disease. Obviously, do not consume any wild plant without being 100% certain of what it is.) Yellow Woodsorrel is commonly referred to as sour grass due to it’s tart, lemony flavor and is quite refreshing as an addition to soups or salads. I highly recommend thanking the fairies for their diligent care of this plant before plucking any if you wish to avoid being on the receiving end of one of their mischievous pranks – these fairies can be quite the little tricksters!

As with most fairies, however, if you treat them and the environment with reverence and respect the Fairies of the Yellow Woodsorrel can bring you blessings. They are wonderful friends to have – motivating cheerleaders that are perfect to work with on confidence and self esteem issues. Next time you come across a patch of Yellow Woodsorrel take a few moments to give thanks to the fairies who watch over this lovely little plant. Those who take the time to meditate in peace with these fairies will often find that solutions to their problems magically appear.

Weekly Card Reading – March 13-19, 2017

Each week before I draw cards for the weekly reading, I take a moment to find that space of silent stillness before tuning into the universal energies that connect and affect us all.

Today as it is warm and beautiful here in Northern California, and my back yard is a sea of yellow wildflowers, I felt a strong pull to work with the fairies. I love connecting to their joyful, protective energies, and that the fairies are not afraid to tell it like it is. Although the fairies have a bit of a reputation of being mischievous tricksters, I find that if you make an effort to live in harmony with the earth that the fairies will act as friends, not foes. If the weather in your area permits, make time this week to spend time outdoors and connect into the feisty fairy energy that can always be found in the splendor of nature. This week’s messages are from Doreen Virtue’s Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards.

Magical Messages From the Fairies Cards

Monday/Tuesday: Birthday – The fairies encourage us to nourish our inner child this week. Although we are all busy with our work and adult responsibilities, the fairies have sent us this card as a reminder to carve out time for the fun stuff in life – the things that never fail to bring a smile to our faces, or that make us feel like celebrating. Indulge in these activities for the joy that they bring us is what makes a life truly worth living.

Wednesday/Thursday: Assertiveness – “Stand up for your beliefs and only say yes if you really want to.” This card is a reminder from the fairies that it is okay to assert yourself and stand your ground. Only you know what is best for you – no one else can decide that for you. Should you find yourself in a situation this week that doesn’t feel quite right to you, don’t be afraid to assert yourself and do or say something about it. So often in life, we are afraid to assert ourselves out of fear that doing so will hurt someone’s feelings, or make us unlikeable in the eyes of others. In truth though, practicing assertiveness from a heart centered place of love lets others know that you care about and respect both them and yourself, and allows space for others to reflect caring and respect back to you.

Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Debt Paid Off – If you have been carrying the burden of debt, know that relief is on the way! The fairies know that no one enjoys living a life where they feel the heavy burden of debt upon them. Know that energies are shifting, burdens are lifting, and change and transformation are headed in your direction! Pay attention for any signs that the fairies may be sending you this weekend on how to reduce, or even eliminate your debts. For some of us, this may be ideas on how to generate additional income that can be used to pay down financial debt. For others among us the fairies may present us with ways to pay off our energetic debt by bringing forth ways to repay the favor to those who have generously assisted us in the past. Let the fairies speak to you this weekend and act on their wisdom. Doing so can help you break free of the stress and burden that debt brings.

TarotScopes for November, 2016

Welcome to your TarotScope for November, 2016! The TarotScope is part horoscope, and part card reading, designed to give you valuable insight into the month ahead. This month, I pulled cards for each sign from the Fairy Tarot Cards deck by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine. * I love working with the fairies any time, but especially when we are experiencing a change in seasons, as the fairies are very active during these times! I think it’s interesting that in spite of my excessive shuffling, certain cards kept appearing over and over again. As such, we have a few recurring themes that kept popping up. The fairies spoke loud and clear about the need to release anything that no longer serves you, the importance of continuing education, and the great joy that comes from surrounding yourself with the people you love. Great advice for all of us! Find your sign below to see what messages the fairies have for you this month.

 

♏︎Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Scorpio kicks off November surrounded by the love and affection of family and friends. Enjoy this time of tranquillity and happiness! As the month progresses you will find you’ll need to lean on these loved ones for support to get through a tough time. Don’t think you have to go it alone because your loved ones are always there for you, and want to help. Mid-month you’ll find yourself under pressure to make some snap decisions. Don’t give into this pressure! Carefully consider all your options, and meditate or sleep on it before making any commitments. As November wraps up, you’ll find yourself perfectly positioned to either make a career change, or obtain a raise or promotion. You’ve worked hard to become the best at what you do, so don’t let anything stand in the way of achieving your career goals. As we head into the busy holiday season, say YES! to any social invitations that come your way. The fairies want you to know that these invitations are likely to lead to a new romance, or a valuable and rewarding friendship.

♐︎Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Fiery Sagittarius has a lot to look forward to this month! You’re enjoying a lot of success at the beginning of the month, and this success has positioned you nicely to be able to move forward with any new projects you’ve been working on. Celebrate all of your success in both your professional and personal life. Gratitude can only serve to amplify your abundance, so be sure to give thanks for all your blessings. Mid-month, take time out for yourself to reflect upon your career – where you started, where you are now, and where you’d like to go. Reward yourself for how far you have come, while considering what tools you’ll need to get to where you want to go. Seek out educational opportunities such as books, seminars, workshops, or even going back to school, so you’ll have all the skills you need to reach your goals. Opportunities for new romance abound as we near the end of the month. Whether this is a new relationship, or the rekindling of passions in an existing relationship – the fairies ask that you open your heart to love!

♑︎Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): At the start of the month, you may find yourself clashing with others, especially at work. It can be challenging to get things accomplished when there are so many conflicting opinions, and you’ll find yourself pushed in one direction while being pulled in another. Take a deep breath when you find yourself in these moments of overwhelm, and know that you will make it through! Your multi-tasking skills have never been better, and they will help you tremendously at this time. Try to keep a playful vibe going as this will help keep you from getting sucked into other people’s drama. By mid-month your work troubles will be behind you, making space for romance to bloom. The fairies want you to know that you are going to find yourself drawn to someone very special! If you choose to let them into your heart, this person will prove to be a loving and dependable partner – someone you can really count on, and who always has your best interests at heart. As the month nears its end you’ll find the passion is growing stronger and stronger, and that this lover both encourages you to dream big, and gives you the courage to pursue those dreams!

♒︎Aquarius (January 20 – February 18 ): New ideas abound at the beginning of the month. Get clear about how these ideas fit into your long term goals before implementing them, but once you are clear don’t let any roadblocks stand in your way! As November progresses, you’ll find yourself surrounded by friends and family. Being surrounded by so many people who love you causes a natural heart opening, and by the middle of the month you’ll find yourself drawn to a new love, or find that an existing relationship has suddenly become a lot more passionate! The fairies want you to ask a trusted advisor for advice as you proceed with this relationship. Know that their advice will lead you on a path towards love and abundance. Wrap up the month by celebrating and showing gratitude for the many blessings you have in life.

♓︎Pisces (February 19 – March 20 ): You’re flying high as November kicks off! Embrace your creativity and go after your dreams with gusto at the start of the month. When you engage your creativity with enthusiasm you will find that you can handle any rough patches that come along, as it will help you discover unconventional solutions to your problems. Mid-month you’ll feel a shift and you may find yourself caught up in self doubt and indecision. Ask a friend or mentor for help – they can help you understand your situation more clearly, and give you the self confidence to make the choices that are best for you. The fairies want you to know that when you empower yourself to put yourself first, things work out in your favor! Take this lesson with you through the end of the month, when you’ll need to make objective decisions instead of worrying about what other people want you to do. Make sure you are being fair to yourself above all others – if you can do this you are sure to come out ahead!

♈︎Aries (March 21 – April 19 ): It’s important at this time, Aries, to be gentle with yourself. Now is the time to give yourself a little TLC. Get plenty of rest, and consider taking a weekend trip, mini-vacation, or a stay-cation so you can really get yourself out of stress mode. Once you disconnect from your everyday troubles you’ll gain clarity as to what you need to let go of in order to advance your career, or meet your personal goals. Make those changes mid month and breathe a huge sigh of relief as you walk away from negative influences in your life. If you can do this, by the end of the month you’ll feel as though the weight of the world has been lifted from your shoulders as you’re no longer held back by associations with stressful situations and overly critical individuals. The fairies encourage you to take a deep breath and step forward into happiness and fulfillment.

♉︎Taurus (April 20 – May 20 ): As November begins, you may find that what you thought you wanted isn’t really what you want at all. Don’t be afraid to turn your back on dreams and goals that no longer excite you. Take a deep breath and make time to to examine what is meaningful to you and what dreams you actually want to pursue. No need to worry about the future – through stillness the answers will come to you. By mid month you’ll reach clarity on what it is that you truly desire, and know the next steps to take to make it happen. The fairies want you to know that this is the right path for you, so bravely take inspired actions towards these goals. Your creativity is at peak levels right now and will help you be successful. Celebrate yourself and show gratitude as we wrap up the month. You’ve set yourself on a path to make meaningful life changes and to live in alignment with your truest self – and that is something to be joyously grateful for.

♊︎Gemini (May 21 – June 20): The beginning of November finds you, Gemini, tired and dragging your feet as you walk through life. Instead if continuing to muddle through, take time to rest and meditate. This will allow you to recuperate your energies and cue into your intuition. Part of why you became so tired in the first place is because you are not living in alignment with your highest self. Your intuition is the surest way to realign so taking the time to quiet the mind so you can clearly hear your intuitive messages is extremely important this month. The fairies are working overtime to make sure you receive these messages loud and clear by the middle of the month so you will understand how you should move forward. Be advised that you may have to cut ties with people who are no longer acting as a positive influence in your life. Don’t be afraid to let them go – they are only holding you back. As we head into the end of the month you will find yourself in full on career mode. This is a great time to focus your energy on that aspect of your life, and doing so will bring satisfaction and meaning to your life, as well as financial rewards. Don’t derail your professional success by procrastination! Stay on track, and keep moving forward daily to continue to reap these rewards.

♋︎Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Sensitive Cancer, as this month begins, take time to reflect back on everything you have achieved in life and reward yourself for all of your accomplishments. Self care and having fun are important areas for you to focus on now so treat yourself to a pedicure, spa day, or a long, hot bubble bath – whatever feels pampering and joyful to you. The fairies are here to remind you that because you do so much for others, it’s important to recharge your batteries by doing something just for you. By mid month the energies are shifting and you may find yourself caught up in fears and worry. Know that these fears are unfounded, and that a lack of self confidence is contributing to these fears being blown out of proportion. Believe in yourself and know that everything you need to succeed is all ready inside you. Make an effort to contribute to your savings account or nest egg as this will help you feel more secure about what the future has in store for you. At the end of the month, surround yourself with family and loved ones. They will help you remember why your dreams are important to you, and give you the confidence you need to pursue them.

♌︎Leo (July 23 – August 22): Roar loudly and take charge of your life this month, Leo. Now is the time to make any decisions that you have been putting off – don’t delay any longer. Your intuition is working overtime at the start of the month , so trust in it and make your decisions from the gut. If you find you are having a hard time connecting to your inner guide, make space for quiet reflection and the answers will come to you. By mid-month the choices you made at the beginning of the month will be paying off for you.  The fairies are here to remind you that you have the strength to easily tackle any challenges that come your way. Messages are coming to you about your career path – don’t be afraid to follow your passions and choose to focus on work that you both truly enjoy, and find meaning in. As you near the end of the month you will find that as you engage with work that holds real value for your soul, you are able to experience positive change and feel a magical joy in all areas of your life.

♍︎Virgo (August 23 – September 22): The beginning of November finds Virgo filled with an abundance of confidence! The fairies want you to know that this means it is a wonderful time to take action on making any life changes that you have been contemplating. You have everything that you need to get to where you want to go in life, and the stars are aligned in favor for your success. Release anything that may have been holding you back in the past and you will see the rewards of doing so by the middle of the month. This will be a wonderful time for you if you step fully into your success and allow yourself to make choices that empower you to walk away from anything or anyone that is no longer serving a positive role in your life. As the month comes to an end, continue the release. When you do this you will find yourself more at ease and see that letting things go opens up new opportunities for positive life experiences.

♎︎Libra (September 23 – October 22): Good news, Libra! Positive life changes are headed your way! Things might not have gone your way in the past, but now is the time to follow your passions and turn your dreams into reality. The fairies ask you to visualize your ideal life, and then set a course in that direction! Mid-month you’ll face challenges – stay focused, employ your intellect and quick thinking skills, and know that you will make it through this rough patch. As you near the end of the month, let go of any attachments you have to people who no longer bring you joy. Cutting that cord opens the door for new friendships and relationships to flourish. Look for opportunities to add sensitive, gentle individuals who radiate love and kindness into your life.
