This blog is designed to explore the new Fairy Tale Tarot by Lisa Hunt. But since I LOVE to blog....I am sure I'll wander off into some other musings about fairytales!!

"The Fairy Tale Tarot cards are like gazing into that pool. They reflect different aspects of each of us. They illuminate or accentuate those parts of us that we seek, or deny, or just long to understand. The cards and the fairy tales they are based on, provide a framework for understanding self and the human aspects of life. And maybe the "not so human" aspects too....the spiritual. They are the water in the pool. Clear and shimmering, reflecting clearly and yet also bringing forth tiny glimpses of those wings. It is this aspect of the cards that called to me. I feel they have things to reveal to me and I am anxious to hear them "speak."

Fairy Tale Tarot Activities

This deck is so multi-leveled that it seems anyone could bond with it....but alas each person is individual. So here are a few ideas for activities to use when playing with the cards.

1. The Fairy Tale of My Life: This is just a variation of the Past Present Future spread. Deal three cards while focusing on "The Fairy Tale of My Life" Now examine each of the cards and from the art, tell a small tale of how it relates to your life in some way...fairy tale style...For example...Once upon a time, I felt trapped (like Rapunzel)....etc.

2. Fairy Tale Motto: This is a variation on the daily draw....when you draw your card for the day...make up a short motto based on the fairy tale...For example from The Thunder Dragon the motto "Kindness will be repaid." or from Hok Lee and the Dwarves...the motto.."There is beauty in honesty."

3. Blended Fairy Tales....draw three the tales and pick one character from each and "blend" them to make a new fairy tale...How does it relate to your life? What message is it conveying?

Those are just a few tidbits that can give you a focus when working with the cards...and don't forget....there is understanding through writing so start a blog or a journal!!!
