Mabon has officially happened and we are on our way towards Samhain which marks the peak of shadow work season. Before we get there, though, we get to PLAY in Venus ruled Libra season!
There are no better allies for play and nature than the fairies.🧚(Trust me I am a fairy soul myself!)
Read on below for my 5 top tips on how to please the fairies and invite their elemental medicine into your life this Fall.
1. Embrace Play! 💃
Fairies are elementals. They lie in an energetic realm different than humans, but also different than angels. Sometimes referred to as the "nature angels" they work closely with nature, guarding, helping and healing its plants and animals. The fairies care about you if you care about Mama Gaia. As you help her, they will help you.😊
As such, fairies are playful beings who love to delight in the moon, the stars, and all the juicy magic Mama Gaia can provide us. Fairies love when we are appreciating and playing in nature to embrace and respect her beauty...all the better with kiddos or pets in tow! So, take some time to play in the leaves, laugh by a campfire, run with your dog, laugh at the squirrels...the more you can bring in play alongside helping furry friends, the better!
2. Leave out Shiny Autumn Themed Treasures✨
Fairies love things that make them laugh and feel delight. They love sparkly things, colors, and glittery treasures. Experiment with drawing in the fairies to your garden or an outdoor altar by painting acorns with gold and silver nail polish, preferably eco friendly. (Bonus: fairies help your plants grow!) I love Roxx Polish because it is crystal infused and eco friendly! Use this link to score some of your own vegan cruelty free nail polish at 10% off. I painted mine with the Tiger's Eye and Labradorite colors and used six, the numerological number for balance.
You might even like to set up an altar for daylight with gold tones, and another one for moonlight with silver tones. For a moonlight fairy altar, make an arrangement of leaves with pyrite stone and drizzle with a sacred oil or handmade perfume. Use orange and cinnamon for daylight, and cypress and patchouli for moonlight.
Bonus points if you leave these altars by naturally growing mushrooms...aka fairy rings!
3. Fairy lights, Fairy lights, Fairy lights 🏮
Along with glittery and sparkly things, fairies also like delicate lights. Think garden party at night...oh so pretty!! Light one beautiful lantern with a non toxic tealight candle. I like GoodLight tealights.
You can also use a simple soy, coconut, or palm wax oil candle. Sip a cup of tea, drape yourself in a cozy blanket and wait for the fairies to come out at night. If you need some inspo, check out Aloha Bay candles which are chakra and energetic themed. A simple essential oil burner or eco friendly wax melt will do too!
4. Buy Sustainable Fashion 🛍️
As a libra moon, I can tell you there is no greater joy than fashion upgrades in fall season. Its important that we do this with some consideration for the environment, however.
Instead of that impulse buy at Tarjay, buy something handmade with love from an Etsy seller or local business. This could be a new scarf or just a small treasure. Fairies love to work more closely with people who are eco friendly and take positive action steps to benefit the planet, people, and animals who live in it.
Buying green, repurposed, or handmade helps reduce toxins from large clothing manufacturing plants, ensures fairer worker conditions, and overall spreads love and good vibes to the planet.
Surf the waves of Etsy for handmade goodness, and check out Pact clothing for sustainable bras, undies, shirts and leggings.
5. Take Time Outs in Nature ☀️
Most of all, fairies want us to appreciate and respect nature. She is our home, and they do an every day job of helping protect, take care of it - and often repair the impact humans do upon it!
In the ways you can support that mission to help and heal nature, you have the thumbs up from the fairies. Take time out to marvel and respect nature via a long nature walk, hike, or extended stay at the park. I LOVE to do so with my pup!
Bonus points if you bring gloves and a bag to pick up any excess litter you see along the way. You might even like to (safely) organize a nature walk cleanup with a couple friends!
No matter what you choose, if love, play, care for Mama Gaia and helping animals are involved, you will be sure to please the fairy souls of this planet.😊
