Daily Angel Card, from the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck, by Stephen D Farmer: Fairies
Fairies: “Earth Magic.”
“Fairies are Nature spirits thought to be descended from the early tribes – particularly the Tuatha de Danann, those associated with the goddess Dana, who once ruled ireland – that inhabited the British Isles. Over time, these ancient people were conquered and displaced; and they fled to areas where humans didn’t venture, ultimately becoming increasingly smaller and less visible in order to better hide themselves
Fairies have assumed responsibility for the plants and trees (or Standing Ones). They work with Earth Magic to take care of these beings, and if you ask, they will help you with your garden or yard. They also have the power of enchantment and shapeshifting.
Fairies appreciate it when we show them through our actions that we love the Earth as much as they do; and consequently, they bestow a little of their Earth Magic upon us.
You have the same power available to you as the fairies do. It starts with loving the Earth through your heartfelt gratitude and appreciation, but more important, through you r actions. The fairies can help you reconnect in a more intimate way with the Earth, and all they require is your willingness to pay attention to the trees and plant life around you, and demonstrate you care.
Whether you life in a small space or have an expanse of land, make it a point to be especially attentive to your surrounding vegetation. Plant something. Get your hands in the dirt and do so with love and enthusiasm. Every flower, tree, or shrub you are tending is a living being, so treat each like you would a dear friend. Ask the fairies to help you take care of these friends, and you will be rewarded many times over.”*
I get so excited when I pull a Fairy card! I love fairies and if you are environmentally conscious, and can admire the astounding beauty planet Earth has to offer us every minute of every day; they will love you too. Connect to the fairies by doing your part to help the Earth: reuse, reduce, recycle! Take care of the planet and it’s creatures, be kind to animals, insects and plants. Enjoy the beauty of a budding flower, and pick up garbage on your walk through the forest or on the beach. When dealing with the fairies, you must prove your worth. You must do your part to earn their trust; they are elemental earth angels and they won’t put up with any damage to the Earth.
Fairies, like Angels, will connect with you through shapeshifting into dragon flies, butterflies and small birds. They will help you realize the concept of abundance by providing a stellar crop in your veggie garden; but you must have respect for all creatures first. Feed the birds, remove spiders and wayward insects from your house rather than killing them, and use natural cleaning products that don’t harm the environment. Eat organically and try to live a sustainable, smaller footprint existence!
Now, I realize that for some of you this is a stretch! Many people don’t believe in Angels, but Fairies?? Come on!! We live in a microcosm of the Universe, we have our blinders on at all times, new things can make us uncomfortable and sometimes that discomfort makes us feel fearful which leads to anger! If it makes sense to you to believe in Angels but not Fairies, that is fine by me, I am only a messanger, I am here to share and I picked the Fairy card today. I love fairies, I always have. You could conduct an experiment and decide for yourself whether the fairies are “real” or not, try working with them and see how it goes, and please… let me know, I would love to hear your experiences.
