Frolicking Fae

By Terri Clement

Using a junk oracle.


As I write this, we on the rainy side of Washington state are having one of our warmest days so far this year - it might get to 86 degrees.  The weather has been so odd this year; the garden is finally doing well and it looks like I will be picking my first cucumber of the season today.  YAY!  The good news is that I will have pumpkins galore for Samhain and Halloween!  :D

Let’s see what the Fae have to say for this month…

The beginning of the month it looks like you will be pulled in many different directions, all at once.  Do your best to get through the stuff that “has to be done.”  The rest will fall in line as it should.  Keep in mind that the Fae are not giving you permission to procrastinate, just advising you to prioritize.  

It also looks like there will be slow movement on that project you are working on.  It might even look like nothing is happening, when actually the forward movement is so slow that you might not be able to see it.  But there is movement none the less.  Stick with it!

Towards the middle of the month, this chaotic energy seems to settle down and frees you up to “monkey around” just a bit!  This could relate to the fact that many of us have children that are going back to school.  Just don’t forget about the project that needs your attention.  You know which one…  it’s the one that you’ve been putting off all summer.  The Fae say go ahead and just get it done.  Get it out of the way.  You will be so happy when you have it behind you (this is something around the house).

At the end of the month, it will be an excellent time to look at the relationships that you’ve put on the back burner and do some evaluating.  Ask yourself: “Why am I not keeping these relationships in the foreground?” and “Should I be putting in more effort?”  Your answers to these questions will give a clear answer as to what you need to do.  Do you put more energy and effort into them?  Or do you let them slip away?

The entire month provides an opportunity for you to shine at your workplace, so do not be afraid to step into the spotlight.  This could be exactly what you need at this particular time.  It’s a time to show off, show them what you have to offer.  Performance reviews that happen this month should be “glowing.”

Outside of work, we are in a time where you can really let your freak flag fly.  It’s okay to show the world who you really are.  It doesn’t matter what other people think, that’s their problem.  Be yourself, BE HAPPY!

For those of you who suffer with sleep issues, you should find that sleep comes easier this month and you will wake feeling very rested!  Enjoy!

This is also a good time to have your car serviced (at the very least check your tire wear and fluid levels).

A good stone to carry this month is the garnet.  


This stone is the birthstone for the month of January and it is linked to the base and heart chakra.  This stone purifies and balances energy.  It brings serenity or passion as appropriate.  It alleviates emotional disharmony.  It can also activate the survival instinct and brings courage and hope.  It can also stimulate past-life recall.  It is a nice stone for “readers” as it sharpens perceptions of oneself and others.  This stone can also help stimulate the metabolism.

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 their guidance, insight and entertainment!

See you again, next month and keep the faith!
