Reading with the Dream Fairies

The beautiful ladies of the Dream Fairies deck (Bianca Luna, Julia Jeffrey / Lo Scarabeo) called to me this morning, inviting me to create a spread that combines the two spreads included in the guidebook that accompanies this lovely deck. (To read my review of the Dream Fairies oracle, click HERE.

One spread from the book uses two cards with the positions representing the positive side of a situation and the dark side of the same situation. The other spread uses five cards to represent us and our dreams, how we can make them come true, obstacles to be overcome, the advice of the Fairies, and the direction our dreams will take.

My combo-spread uses five cards:

…………..3…………..
1…………5………….2
…………..4……………

(1) positive side of a situation (seen clearly, strong points to be developed)
(2) dark side of a situation (cannot or will not be seen, deceptions we may fall for)
(3) how to make the most of the positive side
(4) how to overcome the dark side
(5) the most likely direction the situation will take

And the Fairies say. . .


(1) positive side of a situation (seen clearly, strong points to be developed)

ASTRID, The Fairy of Taurus

Here we have the fairy connected to my Moon sign, Taurus. Key qualities of this fairy and this sign include patience, stubbornness, and determination. Ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus also has a keen appreciation for beauty and pleasure in life. So, these characteristics are seen clearly in the positive side of the situation and/or represent strong points to be developed. I get the sense that, on a positive note, patience and determination can win the day. Notice that Astrid is accompanied, appropriately, by a dog, known for loyalty and steadfast dependability.

(2) dark side of a situation (cannot or will not be seen, deceptions we may fall for)

ALMA, The Fairy of Virgo

I love that this fairy is connected to my Rising sign, Virgo. (This is turning out to be a very personal reading from these fairies!) Although Taurus and Virgo are both Earth signs, they are also quite different from each other. Virgo prides itself on organization, order, perfection, and a focus on health. So apparently something in that mix is contributing to “the dark side” of the situation. I think perhaps the message is that even though I may think organization, attention to detail, and a perfectionistic attitude are useful or necessary, those things may actually create problems and obstacles. Alma-Virgo also focuses on daily life and the routines of life, and perhaps focusing too narrowly on those things is a problem.


(3) how to make the most of the positive side

Tami, The Fairy of Scorpio

This “lady” is not  a key part of my birth chart, so it’s interesting to see her in this position. She is apparently able to make the most of the benefits provided by Astrid (Taurus). That makes sense from an astrological perspective, as Earth (Taurus) and Water (Scorpio) are highly compatible elements. However, as you can probably see from Julia Jeffrey’s gorgeous illustration, Tami is a creature of the night. She looks deeply and feels strongly. Her gifts of introspection, daring, and a craving for risk can offset the steady-as-you-go nature of Astrid/Taurus so that things don’t grind to a halt. And Tami prompts the Seeker to explore the Self and the Soul to understand the truest and deepest meaning of life. Like Astrid, Tami is accompanied by a dog, but hers doesn’t convey the same steady temperament I see in Astrid’s companion. Tami’s dog looks as if he might bound away in pursuit of prey or a playmate at any minute.

(4) how to overcome the dark side

Ariel, The Fairy of Aquarius

Now we can see how an Air sign/fairy (Ariel – Aquarius) might overcome the obstacles presented by an Earth sign/fairy (Alma – Virgo). When I look at these two cards side by side, the fairies face each other, and it is clear to see that Alma-Virgo is serious and careful, where Ariel-Aquarius is adventurous and open to all possibilities. I can almost imagine Virgo’s look of anxiety upon hearing of the escapades Ariel-Aquarius is considering. So the way to overcome a tendency toward obsession over details, safety, security, and daily routine is to welcome the spirit of non-conformism and encourage objectivity and openness to new ideas. Virgo tends to be a solitary soul (the Tarot card associated with this sign is The Hermit), and Aquarius is the sign of friends and groups and sociability. Relax! Explore! Interact!


(5) the most likely direction the situation will take

Lilium, The Fairy of Sagittarius


My Sun sign, Sagittarius (a Fire sign), finally makes an appearance in this reading in the form of freedom-loving, confident, optimistic Lilium. Flexible, dynamic, and willing to change, Lilium tends to be quite jovial and is always ready for travel and adventure. If I can use the energies expressed in the other cards in this reading, I increase my chances of experiencing freedom physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. For Lilium, stagnation is not an option.  

I love this group of fairies with their zodiac signs that seem to match the prominent signs of my birth chart. I like that all of the elements are represented in this reading. The coloring of all but one of the cards is green, yellow, and taupe or tan. Tami/Scorpio stands out in her violet and black hues, drawing my attention for a purpose, perhaps.

  1. These cards are so beautiful, I just wish there wasn't such a steep learning curve on them. I love what you got from this reading, it's a great mishmosh of the two spreads, and beautiful to see the synchronicities with your own natal chart. Good luck with finding your freedom :)
