Under a Maia Moon (Fairy) (Note Card)

Regular price $5.00

Along the lines of my Pagan-y greeting cards, I offer these full moon name cards. This one features two of the names for the full moon in May; the milk moon (Colonial American) and the hare moon (English Medieval). The lighter part of the moon is painted in the pale creamy tones of milk and the the darker areas are colored with an adorable baby hare. It also features the faint outline of Maia, the May fairy (of my tradition).

The full moon is done in watercolor; the fairy is drawn in chalk pastel.

Perfect for May birthdays, holidays, esbats, or whatever suits your fancy.

A tidbit about Maia:
Maia is one of the 13 fairies that I made up once upon a time (ha ha, no pun intended...ish) when I was a composing a (as of yet and probably perpetually) unfinished story about Sleeping Beauty. There's one for every month, plus one extra. They have all sorts of alliances and suchlike and are at war, and elemental, and all have weird names that are vaguely associated with their month names, function, or holidays therein.
Maia is the fairy of May. She's pretty neutral as far as faerie alliances go, following in Mellie's (November) wake a little. Her name is drawn from Maia, a Greek goddess who put the stars in the sky, which gives her a kind of dreamy far off quality that wildly contrasts with the themes of Beltaine, the major holiday in her month.

Oh yeah and card details, for people who care about that sort of thing:
Cards are approximately 5 1/2" by 4 1/4", and come with a slightly larger envelope to put them in (although there is a stamp on the one in the photos there will be no stamp on the one you receive; it is just for reference). This one is also blank on the inside, so that you may fill it with the message of your choice! (Such as "Happy Birthday!")
