The Fairies believe that every living thing should be taught the healing medicine of animals. For the Anniversary of the Fernie Fix the Fairies wanted you to get to know an animal that is within you. These provide insight and understanding of your true self. Please remember that you have more than just this animal within. Happy Anniversary!
Aries (March 21 – April 19) Bat – Rebirth
Hanging upside down is a symbol of learning to transpose your former self into a newborn being. This can mean a time of letting go of old habits, and assuming a position in life that prepares you for rebirth, or in some cases initiation. In every case, the Bat signals rebirth of some part of yourself or the death of old patterns. If you resist your destiny, it can be a drawn out or painful situation. The Universe is asking you to grow and become your future.
Taurus. (April 20 – May 20) Coyote – Trickster
Contained within the trickster is the humour of all ages. The Coyote Fairy has many magical powers, but they do not always work in his favour. His trickery fools him, and no one is more astonished than Coyote at the outcome of his own tricks. He falls into his own trap and yet somehow manages to survive. He may be banged and bruised, or have lost the battle but he is never beaten. You have the ability to lighten people up, add cheer to a party, or break a death-grip conversation. But if you can’t laugh at yourself, you lose the game.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Rabbit – Fear
Rabbits are so afraid of tragedy, illness, disaster, and “being taken” that they attract these fears to teach them lessons. The keynote is what you resist will persist. What you fear most is what you will become. Here is the Rabbit Fairy’s lesson – stop talking about horrible things happening and get rid of “what if” in your vocabulary. Stop trying to exercise control over the future. Write your fears down and be willing to feel them, and then set them free to Mother Earth.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) Black Panther – Embracing the Unknown
The Black Panther Fairies tell you not to worry about the future. Trust that you are not supposed to mentally figure it out at this time. You may need to confront fears of the unknown, of being less than you truly are, or an inability to simply BE. Let go of fears that appear as obstacles or barriers. Embrace the unknown and flow with the mystery that is unfolding in your life. Here you will discover Black Panther’s unexpected blessings.
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22) Beaver – Builder
Beaver Fairies know that limitation cancels productivity. They say it may be time to put your ideas into action or to complete some project that has been neglected. Also, it is time to settle differences with fellow workers or friends. The Beaver Fairies urge you to look for alternative solutions to life’s challenges and to protect the creations which you put your love and energy into. “Beaver – teach me to build my dreams, including others too!”
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22) Squirrel – Gathering
The gathering power of the Squirrel Fairy is a great gift. It teaches you to gather and store your energy for times of need. It teaches you to reserve something for future use, whether it is a judgment, an opinion, a savings account, candles, or extra food. To put it in a nutshell, the Squirrel is the Boy Scout of the animal kingdom – always prepared. The Fairies suggest you lighten your load if you have gathered things that do not serve you. “Teach me to take no more than I need. Trusting Great Mystery to harvest seed.”
Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22) Deer – Gentleness
The Deer Fairy teaches us to use the power of gentleness to touch the hearts and minds of wounded beings. The Fairies ask you to find the gentleness of spirit that heals all wounds. Stop pushing so hard to get others to change, and love them as they are. Apply gentleness to your present situation and become like the summer breeze – warm and caring. This is your tool for solving the present dilemma you are facing.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21) Raccoon – Generous Protector
Raccoon Fairies are the protectors of the underdog and provider for the young, infirm, and elderly. Often called the little bandit, it’s time to become a protector and generous provider to those in need. The little bandit may be telling you to look around and see who needs your strength at this time. Speak up in defense of another instead of remaining silent when others are gossiping. Raccoon asks that you honour yourself and others equally.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21) Opossum – Diversion
The Opossum Fairy asks you to use strategy in some present situation. Rely upon your instincts for the best way out of a tight corner. If you have to pretend to be apathetic or unafraid, do it! Expect the unexpected and be clever in achieving your victory – whatever that may be. Opossum is beckoning you to use your brain, your sense of drama, and surprise – to leap over some barrier to progress.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19) Crow – Law
The Crow Fairy is an omen of change. They live in the void and have no sense of time, seeing simultaneously the three fates – past, present and future. Crow merges light and darkness, seeing both inner and outer reality. The Fairies ask you to pause and reflect on how you see the laws of Mother Earth in relation to the laws of humanity. Be mindful of your opinions and actions. Be willing to walk your talk, speak your truth, know your life’s mission, and balance past, present and future in the now.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18) Moose – Self Esteem
Moose Fairies have the ability to know when to use the gentleness of Deer and when to activate the stampeded of Buffalo. They understand the balance between giving orders to get things done and having a willingness to do things themselves. The Fairies say you have a reason to feel good about something you have accomplished on your journey. It is a time of feeling harmonious pride and of recognizing those who aided you in the process.
Pisces (Feb 19 – March 20) Antelope – Action
The time is now. The power is you. Antelope Fairies give you the strength of mind and heart, and the ability to take quick and decisive action to get things accomplished. The Fairies ask you to say what should be said. Your judgment is sound and your actions will be successful. Take the courage and leap – your sense of timing is perfect.
