July's Frolicking Fae

By Terri C.

with the Shadowscapes Tarot

As I sit down to write the article for this month, we in the Pacific Northwest are enjoying our warmest day of the year so far.  The weather forecast calls for highs of eighty degrees today.     As we had quite the rainy and cold spring, this makes for a very happy day around our part of the country.  I imagine many people called in with some sort of reason not to go to work today.  

At the beginning of this month we celebrated Independence Day.  I do hope that everyone had a safe and sane holiday.  The Fae have a little something to say about that, not necessarily the freedom of our country, but they want to address our own personal independence and freedoms.   They want you to grab your life and shake it up, they feel that some of us are a little to willing to stick with the status quo, in order to maintain a certain appearance.  They are shouting, “Who cares what other people think?”  The Wee Folk really want you to do things, just for you and let go of the fear of what others’ might think.  When you let yourself go, shake things up, even if just a little, you might find yourself experiencing new and exciting things or discovering a hidden talent.  So shake things up!

They also say that the thing that you have lost or are looking for will soon turn up.  Stop fretting over it, once you do that, everything will be as it should.  Just let it go and then whatever your “it” is, will come back to you.

Towards the middle of the month, you might find yourself experiencing a bit of an emotional upset, however it is only a bit and you should mend through it quite quickly.  Only small growing pains this month.

The month of July is also a fine time for traveling, so if you have plans, expect them to go quite smoothly.  There may also be some sort of a get-together, possibly a family function that you have thought about skipping.  You should probably re-consider.  There is a quality connection that you can make at this event. 

This month has fantastic energy for anything that requires paying attention to fine detail.  Any intricate projects should really take off this month if you put a little energy towards them.  For the person who is doing the beadwork, I am being told that you need to add green…  The color of emerald green.

Toward the end of the month, you should experience leveling out with all of your relationships.  You will be able to easily see the closeness with those in your inner circle.  However, you might experience a little extra garbage at work, but like the emotional upset in the middle of the month, this is not too much for you to handle either.

A positive stone to wear or carry this month would be is Citrine.  This particular stone is known as the Success Stone.


Not only will this stone help you put cash in your pocket and bring you good luck, it also promotes the “share the wealth” attitude.  This stone also helps dissipate negative energy.  It can be used to remove unwanted energies from the environment and is a stone that does not need to be cleansed.  You will also find that it can help eliminate fear and bring happiness.

All in all the month of July should not have too many ripples.  Enjoy it!

As always, I hope you find that this message, from the Fae helps guide you through the ups and downs of this month!  Remember, to say a special little thank you, to our Fae Friends, for the guidance, insight and entertainment!

See you again, next month and keep the faith!
