If you selected Card 1:
Faery Love - Follow Your Heart The alchemical marriage depends on the right balance of opposites. Listen to your heart, mind, and spirit. The king and queen are equal partners. The Faery lovers come together knowing the winds must dance between them at times. They are equal partners. This entails being able to think beyond self and allowing the other partner to pursue their own soul path, while keeping the magic alive. Only through mutual respect and with the highest love can this happen. The harmonious synthesis that results is the alchemy of creation and true happiness. This painting is set in St. Nectan's Glen in Cornwall. It is an old hermitage and faery glen. It is said that when Tristan and Isolde left King Mark's castle at Tintangel, they lived for a time in the wood near a hermitage. This site is hidden in the damp forest close to Tintangel. A Nectan was an ancient Celtic water god, possibly the origin of the hermit's name. Faery energies are often caught on film in this area.
If you were drawn to Card 2:
Love Conquers Death - Let Peace Prevail Slay your demons and bury the sword. Unlock the vaults of your heart. Weary of conflict, the Templar knight kneels over the vaults of Rosslyn Chapel. In the background there is a light visible through the window. It is illuminating the stairway to the vaults and waiting for someone to enter. On his shield is the moss-covered heart stone ensconced in the river Esk below the Roslin glen. The sky is the twilight glow of a Midlothian sunset, signifying the urgency that it is time to act before the knight is engulfed in darkness. Two keys of wisdom hang from his belt. The hero's journey is about cycles of death and rebirth. Denying the Spiritual only leads to the illusionary life. The satisfaction of winning or gaining is transitory and usually leads to conflict. Bury the sword of external power and seek the hidden treasure within.
If you chose Card 3:
Encounter in Wistman's Wood - Conquer Your Opposite Polarity Whether within yourself or outside, there is always a part of ourselves to challenge and harmonize. Clear your issues with a partner or friend. Within the county of Devon, England there is an area of Moorland called Dartmoor. Here lies the primeval oak woodland of Wistman's Wood with its gnarled ancient trees. It s a windswept otherworldly landscape of moss covered granite, patches of bracken and clumps of spagnum moss. A sacred grove of the Druids once existed here in this enchanted place. Scholars differ on the meaning of the name. Some say it means "Wood of the Wise Man." Others say it is a derivative of the Devonshire word "wisht" meaning "pixie led." In the painting of this wood, the enigmatic faery woman wanders whole and complete. The falcon represents her psychic or higher self. Suddenly, a stag appears - a challenge! Will she shave the skills needed to harmonize the situation?
