Frolicking Fae

By Terri Clement

Using Amy Brown’s Faery Wisdom Deck

January here in the Pacific Northwest proves yet again, to be warmer, brighter and milder than what is typically expected.  This type of weather makes one really yearn to get outside and enjoy the lengthening daylight, even though layered clothing is required.  Today while running errands, I even found myself with the window rolled down in the truck.  This is surprising for January, to say the least.

Let’s see what the Fae have to offer us for this, the first month of the year…

The first thing that comes up is that you might be feeling alone or even ignored by those around you.  This is really a time to dig in your heels and figure out what makes you truly happy on the inside, without input from others.  Then put those things into practice.  Make you happy first and foremost, trying to let go of relying on others to fulfill this most personal need.

The first two weeks of the month offer up some sort of an opportunity.  Take a good look at this chance when it approaches your direction.  This could bring in an additional source of income or needed material effects.  This may present itself in the form of barter.  Look around and determine what physical things are no longer serving your best and highest intention, then decide what you need.  Look for an occasion to make a valuable trade.

The middle of the month you may find that you have too many things on your “to do” list.  Remember, that all things do not have to be done in a single moment.  You can sort out what has to be done and finish those things that you have the energy for and put some of the others on the back burner.  Remember, to prioritize.  It will really help you tackle more things in the long run.

The 23rd is the New Moon, which is when you will want to shift your focus to what you want to manifest in your life.  This is a good time to write out what you are trying to bring in to your life and then burn it, give it up to the Fae, your Angels, your Creator or the Universe (whom/whatever feels best for you).  Then expect what you are asking for to come in to your life.  This is also a good time to fine tune any Resolutions that you have set for the New Year.

A good stone to carry for this month is the Carnelian.  

This is a nice stable stone that can help restore motivation and stimulates creativity.  It also aids the memory.  Carnelian can also help with courage, harmony, happiness and self esteem.  This stone can help lower back problems, arthritis and depression.  It can also help improve vitamin and mineral absorption.

As always, I hope you find that this message, from the Fae helps guide you through the ups and downs of this month!  Remember, to say a special little thank you, to our Fae Friends, for the guidance, insight and entertainment!

See you again, next month and keep the faith!
