Hello lovelies, happy 2010!
I have a request -- does anyone know of anywhere that sells individual cards from the deck, or a used set for cheap? I discovered around New Years that I'm missing three cards from my deck (so sad, I nearly cried! I'm not even sure how long they've been missing.)
I'm in Canada. I've tried Amazon and Chapters online, and they both have used sets, but with shipping, it works out to the same price as re-buying the set new. I'll do it if I have to, but I prefer to find a cheaper option. I'll also use Ebay if I have to, but I prefer not, because most of my Ebay experiences have been negative.
I also wanted to share a couple stories: I had some friends stay with me for a few days over New Years, and we did readings with the faeries oracle. My friend just wanted to choose one card. He shuffled and cut the deck and pulled one card, and it was reversed (I forget exactly which card it was). He wasn't particularly happy with this card, but when I went through the meaning with him, it was definitely an appropriate card for him to have pulled.
A couple hours later, he was still pouting about pulling that card. So, he decided to redo the reading (which I was against), so he shuffled everything back up, pulled another card, and low and behold, it was the same card, and it was still reversed even!
:) I love this deck! I love that it doesn't seem to matter what you want to know, the faeries are going to tell you what they want to tell you. And I've never pulled a card I couldn't understand.
My second story is about a dream I had on New Years eve, after doing a reading for myself. I pulled three cards, to represent the past, present, and future. After the reading I went to sleep, and had a vivid dream that I was standing in an apartment that just being built. The walls were half-painted, the appliances weren't in yet, the floors weren't finished. And I remembered that I had lived in that apartment when it was completed; I could remember what colour the walls would be and where the furniture would go. And I also knew that I had helped to build the apartment, when it was still being built. I remembered the neighbours were loud and their entire apartment was an aquarium filled with exotic fish, and I walked upstairs to the roof and found that the entire building was a ship in a sea that was in the sky. The sea-sky was stormy with clouds and violent waves.
I adore this dream. The way the past, present, and future all merged together into one time and overall idea that the apartment represented my soul, and the connection to water, a metaphor for emotion. It was such an appropriate dream to have on New Years, and I think it was a good omen for 2010.
