I work with a big collection of different decks for various purposes. I had stumbled upon this Faeries deck many times through hearsay and the positive reviews kept catapulting it to the top of the list. I would ignore it or discredit it each time for a couple of reasons. One was that I don't know anything about Faeries nor do I have an interest in them. Also the deck seemed a little too cutesy on the cover and I thought how am I going to connect to a deck that looks silly to me? This is probably more for those who have a fondness for girl stuff and the pretty faeries.
I eventually kept getting a huge jolt to pick them up that only seemed to increase over a couple months. I ordered them thinking, "What's the worst that can happen? I'll lose $10 and I can always give them to someone who'll have more use for them."
No way. I'm keeping them.
These are excellent! One of the best decks I've worked with. They weren't nearly as airy fairy as I feared they might be. In fact like the name of the deck they are quite magical and another form of the angelic. The art work is top notch and expressive. The gilded edges and enlightening use of purple and gold on the backs really make this deck pop.
What I love about this deck is it focuses on issues that are not featured with some of the other decks. It mostly deals with concrete issues such as tangible, materialistic, manifesting ventures. You wouldn't think so with Faeries, but I've learned that these are another form of angels that are simply closer to us than any either. They're the ones hanging out in the gardens and in nature. Some people that take photos of those settings will often see light orbs scattered around. Well - there they are...the faeries.
There are cards such as "New Home", "Marriage", "Business Venture", "Affirmations" and "New Career" to more internal issues such as "Do Some Research", "Be Yourself", "Easy Does It", "Walk Away" and "Patience Please". The deck is one of the first I've seen that assists in timing by adding four season cards like "Autumn", "Winter", "Spring" and "Summer". You can also use the "Holiday" and "Birthday" cards for timing as well. There are also some that might be confusing to you such as "Son", "Daughter", "Pregnancy" and "Birthday". At first glance you may be unsure of what your guides would be telling you when you keep pulling the "Son" or "Daughter" card, but remember that your guides are attempting to communicate something to you in the best way they can. If you're consistently pulling the Son card and you don't have a son or can't get pregnant, it's possible another message is trying to be relayed to you. It could be someone else's son or that there is someone who is a Son equivalent to you that needs advice, or maybe you're a children's author. You have to delve in deep and listen to your guides or your intuition on how "son" might be connected to you.
Or if you're pulling the Pregnancy card, it doesn't mean you're going to get pregnant. It could mean many different things including the birth of a project or a new career you're thinking about doing. The point is not to take the cards at immediate face value.
I'm a natural clairvoyant and sentient so the cards are really just another tool I sometimes feel the need to use if I need to double check on something. They've been accurate each time for me as I'm able to hear or see the additional messages given to me that's associated with the card. These are fantastic and work for me. This is one of the decks I have fun with. I'm glad I went for it and got these. They'll work regardless if you're male or female. It's the messages that you're getting out of them that are valuable and can't be bought.
If you are new to using oracle cards and not sure which ones to start out with, I would stick with Doreen Virtue's collection but practice with the "Healing Messages From Your Angels" Oracle Deck and "Angel Therapy" Decks. Those two are less specific and a great place to start. You can branch out easier into the other decks afterwards.
