View Full Version : honesty
I love Honesty!!!! :-D I just got these cards last weekend and when I was going through them the card I had to stare at forever was him. Maybe he's apealing to me because I'm finally being honest with myself in a big way. Or maybe it's all that green! Wow...He's so gorgeous. Does he speak to anyone else this way?

You may want to try the excercises in the beginning of the book. They really help you leap into this wonderful deck and give you some instant insight on yourself. Your fondness of him may be because he's your favorite card, and with that, there is a message there. Very much like what you stated. TAke a look at the excercises, and then read the thread about favorite card. There is a thread about all the excercises here, and we would love to see what you come up with and what you have to say, or more correctly, what your fae have to say to you. GRINS. I hope this deck brings you as much assistance and insight as it has for me. It's incredible all the way around. Welcome to our band wagon ~grins happily riding along with all the beautiful fae and looks to where we're going just b/c she's curious~
Oh, I did! I did the exersises at the beginning when I first got it and it is my favorite. hehehehehe
Fatham please post your exercises if you can, we would love to read them!
She of the Cruaeh(sp?)...I see the She in Honesty..It is like they match up..Anyone else see it? No i have not read the book yet to state anymore similaritys..
When I first looked at honesty....How could he not be..Check out the Eyes...They eyes tell it all...Then I noticed She of Cruaeh in there..Hmmmm..
the eyes are quite catching. they're big but not in a creepy way ;) what is this She, Redwood?
I dotn know..it was hard to read the lettering on teh card to be honest...ugh...I should stop now while I am ahead
RedWood is referring to She of the Cruach ... I need to check out the pairing! great observation RedWood!
....Duh. That's who. After I asked when I worked with the deck She came up three times "It's ME...MEEEEEE!" lol
I just did some exercises with the Honesty card and I was quite amazed.
I noticed that he has big eyes and big "ears" but a really small mouth. I saw this: listening and watching are more important than talking when communicating. Hmmm.... I'm not sure what it says in the book, but I was quite proud of myself. :D (I'm trying hard to not look up descriptions. :) )
He also looks like he could live in the sea. Very green and flowing. I think there may be a fin hidden out of sight at the bottom! lol Perhaps I'm just influenced by a certain mermaid?! ;)
Thanks for letting me share my thoughts. :D
I simply love Honesty. He was the second card to speak to me after I got the deck (the 1st was Solus). He taught me a major lesson about brutal honesty - I did actually realized at the deeper level of myself that brutal honesty is rather an ego than true honesty.
I also did some magical work with Honesty. (I believe I wrote about that experience somewhere here earlier). Honesty 'filtered' me as I passed through it to the space where I met Solus to fill my spirit with the energy I needed. Honesty himself suggested this technic. It was rather powerful energy. As Honesty said, most of the times we are simply filled with junk that hampers free energy flow. Honesty is being myself, thus getting rid off all junk.
Last night I was doing a reading about my relationship with my husband (we've been having some hard times as of late). I did a reading on myself using the fae, and boy, it reminded me that i needed to "clean house" badly. My house is almost ran by nothing but faeries (which leads to an interesting household). The pook showed up (confusion) along with bodach (mischief everywhere) and let me tell ya, these are an awful mix to have together. Mischief, confusion, and I realized that the "morning faery" has been hanging out A LOT too (I had to kick her out today unfortunately. The morning fae is in his book "Good Faeries, Bad faeries". Anyways, through it all, I finally asked "what do I do? how do I get through this? Who can advise me through this time?" and guess who showed up? Yup, Honesty. At first I was looking at him in the book as I felt it necessary to really study him for a moment, read what Froud has said about him. I got a lot out of studying honesty in the book, but I was further influenced to pull a card "who can help me" and as soon as I picked up the deck, honesty fell out of it, and I took that as a sign.
The rest of last night and all day today, I've really been connecting myself with this beautiful faery guide. He's been helping me get to the bottom of who I am, what is going on, and helping me sort out the "truth" vs the "confusion". Honesty and i together kicked out Bodach and the Pook. He's been helping me do some soul searching deep down inside of myself, and I am amazed (even though I've been working with this deck for a few years now) at how much counseling I've had in this short a time from him and I working together.
A special thank you to the faery Honesty.
What I've learned about honesty is that He is truly helpful with helping you find the truth inside yourself. When your confused, befuddled, or just don't know where to turn, I STRONGLY encourage you to pull out this card and study him for a little while. Ask for his assistance, and you'll be amazed at what you find. There's isn't a specific message, he just helps you find the truth in the situation you are needing help with. Therefore, that truth changes from person to person.
What are your experiences, understanding, or relationship to Honesty?
Oh my, I got a great help from the Honesty faery recently. Been going through some dissappointments in my life and confused relationship. Honesty advised me on how to overcome illusions and expectations that I built. You just need to look into yourself and see the moment when you don't need anything at all (somewhat a pure existence in this world) and start rebuilding your life spheres once again from there. In my case Honesty worked in cooperation with other faeries - I got help from the Laume with freely flowing senses, the Green Woman which gifted me with that marvelously green sparkle of Life and The Unity which is the Source of all stored in depths of every personality. By now I can Honesty being present, he (this faery is 'he' to me) is a witness to some of my conversations, telling me how to see the truth behind someone's words. I guess at the moment Honesty is my guide to the energies of Singers and Sylvanius's Mask of Truth.
