Being spring is upon us, I thought I’d share some information about elemental fairies. The elements are broken down into fire, earth, air, and water which sums up what their responsibilities would be. Sometimes ether is also used as an element, but being ether is from which all elements come, we usually do not use it.
Fire Fairies correlate to Aries, Leo, and Sag in the zodiac and their elemental name is “salamander.” Their subdivision is a very short one. It consists of the salamander and the flame spirits. Those two subdivisions of fire take care of all the needs of this elemental. Fire Fairies can make and controls fire or make a fire burn out of control, depending upon the circumstance.
Earth Fairies correlate to Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn in the zodiac and refer to the ever-popular “gnome.” The earth subdivision is a little more complex. It indicates two major subdivisions of the surface fairies and the underground fairies. The surface fairies consist of tree, wood, and garden fairies. The underground fairies consist of the rock spirits or gnomes. Earth Fairies are usually mischievous and like to hide things, but eventually, will return them if you ask nicely. They also protect the all the foliage, plants and all trees on our planet.
Air Fairies correlate to Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius in the zodiac and have the “sylph” as its representative. Air fairies are broken into two categories. One is the sylph and the other subdivision is the nature spirits which include the cloud, storm, and dragon spirits. Air Fairies control the different air currents related to wind, storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc., but also the nice warm breezes of summer.
Water Fairies correlate to Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces in the zodiac and are called “undines.” This group is subdivided into salt and fresh water. The freshwater spirits are called undines. The saltwater consists of water babies, sea sprites, and storm fairies. Water Fairies control the water flow of rivers and oceans and help heal the water bodies as much as possible in light of world pollution. They even turn the water into ice and snow in the winter and then can turn the dew to frost.
Fairies come in many shapes, colors, and sizes, but frequently take on a human form because they know that’s what we expect to see. If you suppose they would look like an animal, they will. If you believe they will look very ethereal and spirit like, your wish is their command. Their intent is to make you comfortable with their form – their intentions are usually honorable and caring.

ARIES – March 21 – April 19
Even though we have Covid19 restrictions, you seem to have a lot going on for you. This is a good time to take on line courses, read, learn a new language or study philosophy, esoterica or religion. This time at home or in limited contact with work is a time you can shine. Figure out what you really want to do and then do it! A home project, a personal task or perhaps you want to do something special with or for your family and/or partner. You can learn how to cook new and exciting (and healthy) meals, even though cooking can be over-rated! You want to show the world you can do so much if given the chance. Feeling as if there is so much more to try in this life gives you the impetuous to ideas that you may want to put on your Bucket List. Be satisfied for now and get all the things done in the house, garage, basement or attic that you haven’t had time for in the past. Yes, they aren’t wonderful jobs, but they will be done with so that you can enjoy the upcoming lovely weather.
TAURUS – April 20 – May 20
You should be thinking about work or home projects while you have the time. Do whatever you can to meet your goals, aspirations and dreams. Maybe putting together a photo album, or cleaning out a clothes closet or bureau so that you could give away unwearable clothes and accessories to a local church or charity. Wouldn’t that be a smart move? You can even get a tax donation slip for your trouble. You’ll have less to do with spring cleaning because you would have taken care of some of your housework. Wouldn’t that be a smart move and less for you to do when we are allowed out of our pandemic restrictions. You seem to be taking the warnings very seriously and are not taking any chances with your family’s health or yours for that matter. You wish the world would just follow the rules so we can get on with our lives.
GEMINI – May 21 – June 21
You just don’t stay still for anything, do you? Many projects are in the making and it would be wonderful if you’ve finished some of them. You may also be learning new skills from Youtube in art, language, fashion or makeup. Calling friends, planning things for when we are not hostages in our homes any longer, and catching up on your favorite TV series, or finding new ones seems to be a never-ending task. However, you will go through a few days of being lazy, or feeling like nothing matters so you can just watch TV or read that book. I’m sure staying in your PJs isn’t new, but you may wish to see what you look like with makeup, jeans and a smart top. Get some sunlight and fresh air; everyone needs a break. Don’t put too many demands on yourself unless you are sure you will not be overwhelmed.
CANCER – June 20 – July 21
Be sure to keep busy and interact with those you can. At times, you may be overwhelmed, anxious, having doubts and fears, but when you realize we are all going through the same concerns, that feeling will quickly pass. This may be a good time to study metaphysics, religion or philosophy. You are ready to go out after this lockdown and get back to work, meet with your friends and be with family. You can’t wait to celebrate birthdays of family and friends in person. It’s just a very slow process and you are coping quite well through it all. By now your house must be spotless and everything you’ve wanted to accomplish has already been accomplished. Taking care of family and home schooling is different and it was fun at the beginning, but it seems to be getting old now. You want freedom to do whatever you want to and perhaps wish you occasionally had some time for yourself as well.
LEO – July 22 – August 22
Still being the kind and helpful person you are, it seems that you will be helping others and trying to do more to help those in need. There will be some of the Leos, of course, who will just want to keep to themselves to write, read, or create. They are finding this extra time to be like a gift to the hectic life they used to have with work, family, responsibilities, deadlines and never seeming to get ahead no matter how late you worked. You are setting up your priorities and limitations now. You want a life that you can call your own outside of the family. Maybe looking for a part time job or career after the pandemic is over would be just what you need to make yourself feel youthful, useful and valuable not only to yourself and family, but to all others as well.
VIRGO – August 23 – September 22
It seems finances and/or money issues, at least, and family are the topics for this month. There seems to be a lot of confusion within the family, perhaps different or varied opinions about important topics. However, this is also a time to reconnect or make peace if you are not on good terms with someone in your family. Life is never as easy as it looks and it doesn’t come with a How To book to let us know how to handle every situation. Others may be experiencing tougher circumstances than you. Be compassionate and sympathetic to those who may need your help in getting their lives back on track, but be mindful of those who are taking advantage of you over and over again. You know, whatever you give out, you get back, so help all you can by volunteering, delivering food or even helping on hotlines, hospitals or driving the elderly to their doctor appointments. You will see that helping others will make you feel happy as well.
LIBRA – September 23 – October 23
Family and home life seem to take up too much of your time. You wish things were getting closer to being back to normal because you have so many of your own things to do to find peace in your soul. You may want to start a little home-based business that you may have thought of during the pandemic and really want to concentrate on that aspect of your life. Having family around is wonderful, but it may be a bit of “I need some space,” time and you will try to get it by taking walks alone in the countryside, walking the dog, taking photos of new places you’ve discovered on these walks, watching TV on your own, or perhaps even going into a separate room “just to take a deep breath.”
SCORPIO – October 24 – November 22
Home and love life seem to have your interest now. Certainly, doing things to keep the children occupied, figuring out computer school, keeping them safe and fed, and picking up after them has taken up a great deal of your time. Be sure that you don’t neglect your partner or there may be trouble looming in the future. Have discussions about matters that are important to you and see where that goes. Maybe you may need more help at home or take a break on your own. You have many pursuits and interests on hold now because you are taking care of everyone else and not attending to your needs. Your life needs balance and until you find out how to do that, you may not be as happy as you could be by compromising or cooperating even if it’s not what you feel was in your best interest (for now).
SAGITTARIUS – November 23 – December 21
You are still speaking your mind; however, it would be appropriate to talk to your romantic partner or loved ones very carefully this month. You are able to put your foot in your mouth a lot, so think about what you are before letting it leave your lips. You are also very sensitive now but you try to cover it up by being busy, being critical about things, perhaps not taking things as seriously as you should. You may wish to see why you are so sensitive now—perhaps a partner isn’t fulfilling your needs or you may think that (s)he is not attracted to you any longer. Arguing isn’t going to help resolve issues, so have a good conversation about what is bothering you. You’ll be surprised that your partner may not even know what you are going through and by telling him or her your life will change in a very positive way.
CAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20
You may still be trying to lose some of the pandemic stay at home weight you have acquired over the last year. Getting on a healthy diet is always better than trying diets which more often than not, never work. Exercise, walking, trying new ways to stay physically fit would be a good start. You can even watch new exercise videos on Youtube. It seems that if you put your mind to it, you can do anything. You just have to decide which things in your life you want changed and then change them. Life is not as disheartened as you may think. There are plenty of people doing new things, finishing old chores or tasks, or just being able to get some quality time with your partner and family. Not having full control at work may be an issue, but everyone is dealing with that. You need to relax a little and enjoy the time off. Once you are back to work, you will wish you had more time with family, so enjoy them now.
AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 18
There may be some distress or embarrassment when it comes to your personal partner and loved ones, or those who you know through business. You must be very fair and relaxed to discuss occurrences that may have disturbed you in some way. Discussing it in a tranquil manner would be a good beginning. Dealing with money may also lead to some conflicts. Helping a family member through a tough time and it will be greatly appreciated. Even though you may be able to be at work, as a health care professional or other essential service, you were hoping that you would have more time at home to get to your projects and household tasks. You want to revamp a few things. You may wish to renovate a room or two which is a good choice to work on or perhaps painting one accent wall of a room to give it character and the slight change you may be wishing for. Of course, little accessories can add color to any room. Rest when you can and stay safe.
PISCES – February 19 – March 20
You may be inspiring to others and will help them with their issues and concerns while yours go unattended. For now, that’s ok. You are using your intellect, logic and creative abilities to keep busy. Thoughts of traveling or more education on some level (formal education, DVDs, CDs, TV, workshops, training, classes, etc.) is indicated. You may want to take an online course whether its for fun or to push you up the career ladder. Don’t misread situations as you may make a wrong judgment on any quarrels or clashes with others. Maybe that person just needs someone to listen to them or to understand their side of the story. Being how lovely you are, be sure to keep yourself as one of your priorities because it looks like you are doing all the giving and others are just taking whatever you give them.
