So, I asked my cards what I can practically do to reconnect with faery. I decided to draw a line of seven (faery number), and to shape it like a flame, as fire is the element of action and inspiration.
|Earth, Man, Snake, Lily, House, Stork, Air|
This deck has four elemental cards, and two of them came up in this reading, framing the other cards! Reading this as a line gives me, logical practicality for boundaried actions bring a peaceful transformation. Meditating on a sense of home brings progress in the feeling of comfort, and inspiration in how to move forward.
What I get from that is the idea that I do need to be both rational and practical about this, and acknowledge how much I can actually do. If I make big plans, I probably won't stick to them, so I have to keep it real! What I can do is make a space in my home again for the Sidhe, and dedicate at least a little time to it daily. I need to make it feel like somewhere they would like to spend time, and add to it regularly.
It's interesting how looking at the mirror cards puts Earth and Air together, once again practical and rational both. Man and Stork is action to move things forward, and Snake and House is transformation of my sacred space. Meditation in the Lily crowns it all. So, not just about making the sacred space, but also about meditating there.
I wonder whether I could set something up in the garden, as we have a little bench under the shed's roof, where I could sit even if it was raining… Or is that not practical enough?
