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."

Princess and the Pea Spread

Image ©Copyright 2009 Lisa Hunt & Llewellyn Publications. Used by Permission.

Card One:
This card represents the Seeker or the Issue.

Card Two:
This card represents a factor/influence close to the Seeker.

Card Three:
This card represents The Fairy Tale that has the message needed for understanding or resolving the issue.

Card Four:
Represents a truth that must be believed or proven or accepted.

Card Five:
Represents a shadow aspect of the situation. Deeply hidden or unacknowledged, it is creating the most discomfort

The Princess and the Pea spread is layed out just as shown...with card one being the top mattress and card five being the bottom to speak. I tried to tie elements of the story into the spread....for example card four is about truth or believing. That is part of the story...the need to confirm that the Princess is telling the truth.


  1. I learn more about the other tales, I hope to develop a few more.

  2. help!!!!!!!!!!.what does this spread lool like? a single row?
