Frolicking Fae

By Terri Clement

Featuring the Oracle of Shadows & Light by Lucy Cavendish and Jasmine Becket-Griffith.

Summer is in full swing here in the Pacific Northwest. The skies are battleship grey and it is a whopping 62 degrees. The garden is coming along nicely. I am finally having some success with tomatoes.  A friend advised me to keep them under cover and told me that tomato plants do not like getting their leaves wet. This year my plants are already taller than I am and I have several tomatoes on the vines.  I am VERY excited!

Let’s see what the Fae have to tell us for the month of July…


The beginning of the month it is important to remember to treat yourself to something special, especially, if you are feeling a little down. It’s okay to feel this way set a time short time frame and honor all of the feelings that you are experiencing. Find the root of the emotion and find a way to release that. At the end of the window of time that you have set make a choice to change how you are feeling, then treat yourself to something that you don’t normally allow yourself to have. Feel a sense of self-love and self-worth. It is time for fun, a delicious meal, a massage and more! You deserve it!

The middle of the month is an excellent time for learning and change. What have you been interested in lately? What is the thing that you want to know more about?? Now is the time to expand your mind. Do independent research, take a class or talk with an expert. 

Towards the end of the month you may be feeling the need to pull away from someone or a situation that is not serving your highest and best good. Be very clear with your intention here, do not allow yourself to become passive aggressive. If you feel that you need to tell someone to back off, then do it and don’t be wishy washy about it. Don’t worry about being seen as the “bad guy” it really doesn’t matter. You have to do what is best for you.

A nice stone to carry this month is the Ruby.


Ruby improves motivation and helps us set realistic goals. It encourages passion and zest for life. This stone encourages joy, laughter and courage. It helps remove negative energies from your path. It can help overcome tiredness and can help calm hyperactivity. It can be used to aid fevers and can stimulate the kidneys, adrenals, and spleen.

*Stone healing properties are not intended to replace the advice of your doctor.

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!
