November Message from the Frolicking Fae

By Terri C. 

Based on meditations with the Mystic Faerie Tarot

Fall has definitely arrived here in the Pacific Northwest.  As I look out the window, as I write this the leaves that are still left on the trees are a beautiful gold, orange and red.  I don’t imagine those leaves staying on the trees much longer.  There are already many on the ground.  The days are darker and damp.  Jack-O-Lantern’s adorn my front porch.  Last night we had a brilliant electrical storm.  This truly is my favorite time of year!

Let’s take a look and see what the Fae have to say for the upcoming month.

First, they would like to send wishes of good luck and speedy writing to those you who are choosing to participate in NaNoWriMo.  They would like to say that it really doesn’t matter what you are writing, just that you are writing.  If you choose to write about the Fae, that would truly delight them!  Whatever you choose to write about, remember to just write.  Find the regional groups in your area and participate in the kick-offs, the write in’s and the other fun events that the Municipal Leaders have planned.  It will make the month, much more fun for you!

If you are not participating in NaNoWriMo, they want you to find some other creative outlet.  Find something your passionate about and then schedule in at least a half hour a day.  Something to fill your time during the darker months here in the Northern Hemisphere.  The Fall and Winter months often lead to depression and having some sort of creative flow going on, will give you something to look forward to.  Maybe it’s time to pick up a new hobby or craft project of some sort.

While you are feeding your passion, it’s also important to nourish your body.  Don’t forget to drink your water.  Often times, in the cooler months, we forget to take in those extra fluids.  Remember, if you are thirsty, you are already dehydrating.  Calculate out how much water you should be taking in and then do it!

This may be an emotional month for someone close to you.  You may feel like you are earning your counselors degree this month as they are coming to you for so much advice.  Your relationships with friends are important, but if you feel that this starts to drain you, then know that you need to back away just a bit and take care of you.  If you find yourself in this position, try to find something fun that you can go do together, that will occupy that persons mind and give you something else to talk about even if it’s only for an afternoon.  If it really becomes too much for you to deal with, you may have to suggest that this friend visit her doctor, spiritual counselor or something of that sort.  

Many stores and even our media are pushing the holiday’s on us earlier and earlier.  Try to relax and take each day for what it is.  There is no reason to start thinking about Christmas or the likes, right after school starts.  Enjoy the season for what it is.  Also, something to think about, due to the economy, it may be important, for your budget, to scale back what you are spending and that’s ok!  Think about what you can make and give as gifts.  Homemade gifts can be a real treasure!  Think about things from cookies, jams, jellies, to crafts.  All of these would make wonderful gifts.  You might think about giving a bird feeder and bird seed to someone who doesn’t have one.  Let’s all try to make this a practical holiday season!  

Towards the latter part of the month, you may not be feeling quite up to par emotionally.  This could actually be a very difficult time.  Try to differentiate what is really YOUR stuff and what you are carrying around that actually belongs to other people.  Just by noticing the difference and refusing to carry around other people’s baggage, you will begin to feel lighter and brighter.

You may find yourself having a run in with someone at work.  Even though this feels very challenging, remember you really don’t know what is going on in this persons personal life.  Nor should you know.  They are carrying around a lot of personal stuff and it’s making it’s way into their professional life.  It’s best to agree to disagree than continue along with the argument. 

As we muddle through the middle of fall, try to spend some time outdoors.  Even if you have to get rubber boots and dodge raindrops.   If you really can’t seem to get out, then maybe pick up a couple of pretty little plants and bring them inside.

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!
