Frolicking Fae

Using the Oracle of Shadows & Light
By Lucy Cavendish and Jasmine Becket-Griffith

The Summer Faeries begin their rest as the Autumn Faerie awaken from their slumber. So many things for them to do. Helping the summer plants return to earth and give a last burst of energy to those just coming into harvest.

Did you know that If you have fruit trees or vines, it is customary to leave the last of the fruit for the Fae. This can help for a bountiful harvest next year.

Let's see what the Fine Folk have to say for the month of October.


At the first part of the month you may feel that even though you are working hard and working long hours – that nothing is getting done. This could easily lead to boredom and frustration. Be sure to look at your “down time” and make sure that this is “quality time.” Do something easy, fun, and something that shows results.

You may normally want to be seen as someone who is always well liked and conform to rules and boundaries set by others, but during this time it is okay to bend the rules from time to time. Speak up, take action, and don't be afraid to take a risk.

Mid month, you may find that bending the rules earlier in the month sets new things into motion. New ideas, new motivation, and new energy are ripe and ready for the picking. Make lists on the order in which things should be done then run with your new ideas and see how far you can take things.

Pay attention and flex that intuitive muscle. This is also a great time to explore your creativity and maybe try a new art form. Try something completely different than you would normally do.

The end of the month is going to come very quickly and you will have plenty going one. Even though it looks like chaos, you will find the order and will be able to keep things settled and yourself calm.

If you read Tarot (for others), you might find yourself busier than normal.

Remember to take care of yourself as you move through this busy time. Be sure to create time for breaks so you can enjoy the season as well. Be sure to schedule in time to get out and take a walk and enjoy the fall colors before they disappear.

A nice stone to wear or carry this month is Peridot.


Peridot is a very powerful stone. It helps release and neutralize toxins. It can also help release jealousy, hatred, greed. It can help open the heart to joy and new relationships (those looking for love might want to include a rose quartz as well). Peridot can help with confidence, motivation. It can help boost energy and open the mind to new levels of awareness. 

Peridot can be good for the immune system, metabolism and skin. It can also help balance bipolar disorders, strengthen the eyes, help with issues of the heart, lungs, gall bladder, spleen, and intestinal tract.

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!
