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 Friendship Sample Reading

I wrote about the Fairy Tale Friendship Spread yesterday so this morning I thought I'd try a sample reading. As I started it occured to me that even though I have named this the Fairy Tale friendship reading, it would work equally well for any relationship.

Card One: (The Seeker): Ace of Cups. Overflowing emotions, love This card also indicates the even though overflowing is only in the beginning stages, a possiblity if you will. Cups are also Water indicating 'things are not moving, things are staying the same."

Card Two: (The Other Person/Friend) Nine of Wands: Eventual Victory, Tendency to obstinacy
Hmmmm...interesting. Wands are fire. Things are moving, things are changing.

Card Three: (What connects the two people) Two of Pentacles: The ability to handle multiple situation, harmony during change, balance between two choices. Pentacles are the earth..Things
are stable, things are grounded.

Card Four: (What divides them): XVIII The Moon: Going within, illusions. deception, trickery, double-dealing. The Moon is Water...things are not moving, things are staying the same.

Putting it all together. There are several possiblities here....for the sake of time...I will only explore one this morning but will be back later to offer alternatives.

As a person I see the Ace of Cups as a person of passion and strong feelings. A person with strong intuition but one who is only just beginning to trust and rely on this. Change may be hard for this person because they are who they are. They believe strongly in some basic things and are not quick to "throw the baby out with the bathwater."

As a person I see the Nine of Wands as a person who is constantly changing and moving. Sometimes this is a good thing and creates a positive energy and at other times it can be disruptive. This person is always seeking eventula victory. But victory is whose eyes? Their own? With a tendency to obstinacy they frequently set course to victory without considering other viewpoints or options.

What connects the two? The need or the desire to maintain harmony. Neither seriously wants to upset the apple cart so to speak. there is a balance between not agreeing but remaining "together" on certain issues or topics. The need for an appearance of harmony often overrides the true nature of things and keeps them connected. add in the element: earth...there is a need to stay grounded and stable and so they do.

What divides the two? The Moon: Deception, trickery, double dealing. Hmmm this might be major behind the scenes stuff or it might be referring to the "falseness" of What connects the two...or a bit of both. I get the feeling that there really is deception and double dealing or at least one or both of the people think there is. Water...things are not changing....this is an aspect of the relationship that will not change easily...there is no trust. With two waters and an earth...I'd say slow moving or not changing...the fire is there but it is being dampened by the other three...and perhaps that is a good thing. Change for the sake of change is not desirable. Also change that is selfish is troublesome.

Hmmm....those are my first thoughts....more later.
