Under a Moira 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 the blue moon. The texture of the lighter part of the moon is taken from a blue rose, and the darker areas are shaded with the pattern of a blue jay's wings. It also features the faint outline of Moira, the fairy without a month.

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

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

A tidbit about Moira:
Moira 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.
Moira is the monthless fairy. She is meant to be the "evil" fairy that wasn't invited to Sleeping Beauty's christening (older versions of the story have strong nature references, and one of the variants cite not inviting the last fairy because they only had 12 golden plates to serve the fairies with (who each represented a month)). She's sort of a harbinger of fate, thus her name which references the moirae (the Greek fates), and also means "bitter," an homage to how harsh she can be. She is allied with Bridget (February) and Avery (April) and is fierce rivals with Juniper (June), Marjoram (March), and Augustine (August). She and Juniper cause the most problems with their fighting.

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 (these ones are white, 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!") And it'll be packaged in a cardboard mailer, so it won't get all bent up.
