I adore Fairies, and I adore Oracle cards. Thus together, the combination in this stunning Oracle card deck is indescribably enchanting.
Last year, I truly loved using Oracle cards (I’ve previously reviewed a Unicorn deck here) as part of my bedtime routine as they always carry a message of hope that eased my anxieties and helped me overcome any doubt that arose in my daily life.
For Christmas, I was kindly given the Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards from Doreen Virtue, and I truly think they are already one of my favourite deck of cards to date.
What are Oracle Cards?
Oracle cards are an ancient and reliable way to receive spiritual guidance and detailed insight, with the number of cards in a deck related to numerology.
The selection process is based on the ‘Law of Attraction’ that ensures that you’ll always choose the correct cards whose answer matches the vibration of the question.
From there, the process is very individual. For me, I love to seek a peaceful backdrop, and as I read the words in the card description, I like to notice any thoughts, additional words, feelings, or visions that come to me. I tend to use Oracle cards at night and I keep a journal on my bedside to make any notes about cards I pick.
Oracle cards vary immensely in theme within the spiritual realm. For me, a card with love and light from faeries or my Unicorn cards I reviewed here are an easy-to-use deck of oracle cards that are appropriate for beginners as well as those experienced with divination cards.
History of Faeries
In folklore, a faerie is one of a class of supernatural beings, generally conceived as having a tiny human form and possessing magical powers with which they intervene in human affairs.
There are over a thousand variety of faeries throughout legend and lore around the world. Almost every culture has some form of faerie being who interacts with humans. Some cause havoc and others are here to protect or help!
The spiritualists of the west tend to focus on faeries of Europe, but they do exist all over the world and can even be found in Japan, China, India and in many shamanistic cultures of Native American Indians, African tribes and Australian Aborigines!
Faeries are highly connected to nature and take care of the natural world or what some might call the ‘elemental world’. They bring the spring and help the nature kingdom wake up from its long winter slumber.
There is just so much history about faeries that is fascinating, and if you want to read more into this, I highly recommend you do! Fairy lore is particularly prevalent in Ireland, Cornwall, Wales, and Scotland and through Scandinavia, all a huge part of my identity.
I also love to read about fairies in literature from the Middle Ages and in art. They appear in the writings of the Italians Matteo Boiardo and Ludovico Ariosto. Also the English poet Edmund Spenser, the Frenchman Charles Perrault, and the Dane Hans Christian Andersen, among others.
Fairy Oracle Cards
As Fairies are often known as beloved “nature angels” they make the perfect subject for Oracle Cards. As Fairies are so close to the Earth, they are brilliant at healing and helping with everyday concerns such as relationships, health issues, and finances.
With stunning illustrations, these magical messages from the faeries are an absolutely exquisite deck of quality Oracle Cards from Doreen Virtue.
Each of the 44 cards has a gorgeous painting of fairies and a message or answer for you. For more in-depth meaning for each card, the enclosed guidebook walks you through the steps for giving an oracle reading for yourself or others and outlines the extended meanings behind each card.
Today I picked out the card ‘Let Go’, a truly perfect reading for me, and one I’m sure many can resonate with as we head into the new year with this blank canvas we have.
If you’re new to Oracle cards, the first few pages of the guidebook detail very simply how to clear and prepare your deck for readings so that you can be ready to start within a few minutes.
Overall, these fairy oracle cards are completely magical and are a truly delightful way to connect with the Fairy Realm.
For anyone interested in Oracle Cards, and who is also interested in Angel cards but are unsure where to start, then these cards are very gentle and great for younger ages or beginners.
