Frolicking Fae

By Terri C.

Using Twilight Realm: A Tarot of Faery by Beth Wilder, published by Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.

As I sit to write this, the garden is really sprouting up.  I am excited about all of the different things we’ve planted this year.  If I could only find the right magic to keep the deer from eating all of my peas and raspberries, I would be quite content.  Two batches of strawberry freezer jam have been put up-- that's 28 jars!  Raspberry jam will be made next week.  I am so grateful that we live in a place where it is so easy to pick up local produce!

Let’s take a look and see what the Fae have to say…

Right out of the gate, the Fae are telling us that it’s time to get up, walk away from all that is electronic (if you can), and get outside.  Do something physical without the influence of electronic devices.  Leave your phone and ipod at home.  Pay attention to your senses, what do you smell, what do you see, what do you hear?  See how good you feel when you take some time just for you and spend some time away from all of the hustle and bustle or your “every day” life.  If you physically cannot do this, then sit in your favorite chair, put your feet up, close your eyes and imagine yourself doing so (but remember, turn off your phone and tv)!    Try to incorporate a little of this every day, work it into your routine, you might surprise yourself and actually enjoy it.

Once you’ve taken some time for you, then it’s time to focus on your path.  Take a quick self-evaluation, look back over your New Year’s Resolutions or your goals.  Re-evaluate them, if need be.  Then set a plan in place and begin your forward motion.  This can be a highly successful time for you, but you need to stay on course and stay focused.

Towards the end of the month a new and very creative idea comes to you.  This is something that you should take a close look at.  Though the idea is a little complex and might require quite the investment of your time, it looks like it will really pay off.  This could relate to business, for those of you who run your own, this could increase your profit margin nicely.

The beginning of the month of August, you might find yourself in the presence of someone who wants to burst your bubble.  You have a choice here, choose wisely.  You can engage this person and try to prove yourself or you can ignore and go about your business.  Either way, don’t let this person drag you down to their level.

August may also bring you to a place where you feel like you are stuck in a rut.  If you see this happening and you can’t see a way out of the cycle, re-read the very first part of this message and get your body moving, do something different-- ride a bike instead of taking a walk.  Fly a kite instead of playing “Angry Birds.”

It looks like there is an improvement heading your direction, in regards to a material nature.  This could revolve around finances.  Hold tight and be patient.  Then be sure to express gratitude when it happens.

A nice stone to carry this month is the Sun Stone.


This is a joyful, light-inspiring stone.  The Sun stone will help you nurture yourself and brings in light and energy.  This stone allows your true self to shine through brightly.

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!
