Daily Divination Cards - Tuesday 23rd October 2012

Good morning!

No time to chat - just flying in quickly with the cards and messages - as they have taken me ages to type out this morning!

(That's the trouble with using a new deck for the first time - which were a gift from my Mum - but I do love these cards and have been wanting to share them with you for ages!)

Whatever your star sign - have a great day :)

Brightest Blessings,


This week I am using the

My personal card for today:

The Speaker of Truth 

Trust / Acceptance / Open Heart 

In Faerie, many of the individuals we meet can be tricky. They will tell you a lie as blithely as tell you the truth; it’s in their nature. This beautiful man is the Speaker of Truth. Like Thomas the Rhyme, he cannot lie.

When something needs to be told, when a question needs a truthful answer, he will always speak, going to the heart of the matter and telling you what he has found there. It may not be what you want to hear, but it will be truthful. He can be trusted when you need someone to trust.

When the Speaker of Truth appears, ask him the question you most need a truthful answer to and be willing to accept that answer. It won’t always be easy, but when he turns up, it means that somewhere within you, you are seeking the truth. So open your heart to him as he opens his heart o you and truly hear what he speaks.

Today's cards for each of the star signs:
Due to lack of time, etc. These are the 'quick reading' messages - for the full reading and meaning of the cards you will need to obtain these cards for yourself - or get someone else to buy them for you as a gift!

Here are your messages and insights for today. Try to sit quietly for a few moments, meditate on your card and think about how you can learn from, and act upon, its message...

The Queen of Passage (2 days in a row!)

Surrender / Transition / Trust 

Quick message: All things change. All situations move from one phase into another. Sometimes those transitions are difficult. Letting go and moving on, whether to a new life, a new love, or perhaps just a new phase in a current relationship, can be painful, but the Queen of Passage is there to help with those transitions. There is growth in the future. There is a way ahead. The moment of passage between the past and future is moment of surrender. Trust this great queen to be your guide. Listen to what she has to tell you and then take that step. She will be at your side in the moment you move out of the past and into the future.

The Queen of Owls (2 days in a row!)

Physical Healing / Wholeness / Wellness 

Quick message: This is the bright queen of physical healing. When the physical body is unbalanced or in pain, it can be difficult to find a connection to anything other than that pain or disease. Relationships can falter and fail when all of your attention pivots on dealing with pain. When your physical body becomes the only thing you can focus on, turn to this bright and gentle being. The pain is real, the disease is real, but the power to heal is real within you as well. Concentrate on the Queen of Owls and reconnect with the healing energies of Faerie.

The Shape Shifter 

Perception / Illusion / Truth Within 

Quick message: Who is this man? Well, that’s the problem really. He is everything and nothing. He can change who and what he is to suit any situation and any relationship. If you place your trust in someone like this, you may find yourself waking up with a stranger one day, not the person you thought you knew at all. A relationship with a shape shifter is a frustrating experience. You will never be able to pin this person down. You must ask yourself if it’s worth the effort, and if the answer is yes - then be strong and courageous. Hold onto him as he shifts through his many shapes, and you may find yourself with a true man at the end.

The Maiden 

First Love / Wonder / Endless Possibilities
Quick message: Always in that magic state between girlhood and womanhood, the Maiden lives in the place where everything is possible. Love and romance are her lifeblood, and where she walks in Faerie, romance blossoms and love flowers in her wake. No matter what our age or sex, we must honour the Maiden and acknowledge her in our lives and relationships. When the Maiden appears, take the time to remember how you felt when you first fell in love. Remember and take some of that wonder and sense of endless possibility with you on your continuing journey.

The Faerie of Growth 

Movement / Growth / Re-visioning Process 

Quick message: Growth can mean so many things. One thing it always means is movement and change. Growth doesn’t standstill. Growth by it’s very nature is a constantly changing process. To stay on one mindset or one mode of being is to stagnate. If you move through life with an awareness of everything around you, you will grow. You won’t be able to help it. If you draw this card, take time to think about how your life is changing and how you can direct that change for the good. Look at the Faerie of Growth and feel the energy of her unfolding wings. Step forward and see where that step leads you. Spread your wings and grow.

The Queen of Hearth and Home 

Welcome / Courtesy / Graciousness
Quick message: The Queen of the Hearth and Home carries with her the ability to make a home in the moment, in the now, wherever she is. She passes this ability on to you. It is important to “be at home” in any situation, to create a “home” when you invite people in to your space, whether at a table in a restaurant, a desk at work, or in your own home. The ability to make someone feel welcome when entering your space is a gift indeed. When this card appears, remember that you are in the presence of a great queen. She gives you the ability to be gracious and create a home wherever you are, in any relationship. - 100% Free Dating

The Queen of Laughter 

Art of Joy / Lightness / Fun 

Quick message: She is always ready to leap joyously into a situation, grinning mischievously and fluttering her lovely wings as she lands in your soup, on your clean shirt, or in your very serious thoughts. She’s out to have fun and she wants you to come with her. A sense of joy and fun can do more good than almost anything else in most situations. Wherever this queen goes, she spreads joy, and when you travel with her you can’t help but spread it, too.

The Challenge 

Self Criticism / Obstruction / Go For It 

Quick message: This faerie stands before you as you set off on your journey. She bars the way and demands an answer to her challenge. She asks you to be brave. She may try to dissuade you from your task by whispering undermining thoughts in your ear. She is testing you. Don’t give in. Stand up to her and she will gladly step aside and let you pass. If you are thinking about beginning a new relationship or venture, but the voice in your head keeps whispering that you’re just not good enough to even consider it, remember that this is a challenge. You are being tested, so go for it, and you’ll be surprised at how much you can achieve.

The Faerie of Naughtiness 

Lighten Up / Mischief / Misrule 

Quick message: Sometimes you just have to be naughty. The Faerie of Naughtiness asks you to step outside of your boundaries for a moment and do something unexpected. She dares you to change the energy of a situation by doing the one thing that will tilt the universe just a tiny bit. Sometimes you can change that energy just by thinking. Naughty thoughts can lighten a situation without anyone else having to know about it. If you don’t acknowledge her, if you ignore her, you may become the target for her own naughtiness. She’s very good at stealing things, losing wallets, misplacing important letters and important thoughts, so when it looks like it’s going to be one of those days when little things go wrong and circumstances become predicaments, acknowledge the Faerie of Naughtiness, and get her on your side again. She just wants to play.

The Hope 

Light in the Dark / Faith / Comfort 

Quick message: This is the faerie of dark despair. She is there in your darkest hour. She feels despair and lives it with you, she helps you through it because the only thing to do is go through it and come out the other side. In all despair there is hope. It may be small and seem insignificant but it is there. Hope is the bright spark, the tiny bit of magic that can turn the tide of despair. If you find this card in a reading, remember that there is hope in any situation. It may not come in the form you are expecting or would wish for, but look for it, and you will find it nonetheless. Have faith that something good can come. By allowing that thought in, the darkness of despair can begin to give way to the light of hope.

The Boy 

Adventure / Freedom / Youth 
Quick message: The eternal Boy is like Peter Pan, the boy who never grows up. What is important about the Boy? We are told that we inevitably grow up, grow old, and die. And we do. At least part of us does. But there is another part of us that, like Peter Pan, stays eternally young, and not just young, but “boy” young. The part of us that wants to seek adventure, live dangerously, live heroically, die gloriously. Male or female—we all need to acknowledge the “boy” within us and let him run free. When the Boy turns up, take a minute to find the boy inside of you. He may be hiding - boys are good at that - but coax him out into the light, say hello, and let him fly. He’ll return to you, and when he does, oh what tales he’ll have to tell!

The Shadow of the Past 

Past Love / Letting Go / Resolution 

Quick message: The past can haunt, especially past relationships, and past loves. In Faerie, when you wander in the past, time takes on a different meaning. Things that may have happened years ago resurface as very “present” feelings and emotions. The Shadow of the Past can be a help or a hindrance on your life’s journey. If this card turns up, perhaps things that were left unsaid at the end of a relationship could be said now in Faerie. If you do so, the shadow, if unneeded and unwanted, may depart and the haunting end. On the other hand, if you enjoy encounters with the past, then greet your old love with joy and listen to what it has to tell you, and let it go freely. Holding onto the past can be an unproductive thing if it blinds or deafens you to what is happening now. Letting go can lift the shadow of the past and make way for the joy of the future.

Merry met!
I stumbled upon your site last night, and it appeals to me. I was searching for "Live Heroically, die gloriously" and of all the billions of web sites in the world, yours was the only one to provide this quote. I just wanted to know who originally said it? But your web site made me think about a lot of things, bravo. I've been into Faerie, Witchery, and Divination for most of my life; Illumination, and the path of awakening. It's always good to see that there are others out there, for this is a hopeful sign indeed.

Hi - thanks for your message - it threw me a bit because of this being a blog from last year! If you read today's blog - - it's all about synchronicity and that seems to be what happened to you, in finding this! Brightest Blessings to you, Kaz :)
