Fairies and Valentine's Day

Fairies are often associated with romance and love. They feature little in the origins of Valentine's Day, however that does not mean they don't play a part!

There are several origins to Valentine's Day. Originally, it was common belief in the British and French Middle Ages that birds would start searching for a mate on February 14th. However, the main origin lies in the Roman festival of Lupercalia, celebrated on February 15th and to herald the coming of spring. It also honoured the Roman god Faunus, who protected shepherds and sheep, and later, the mythical founders of Rome raised by a she-wolf, Romulus and Remus. In becoming a festival to guarantee fertility, it consequently became known as a love festival.

The event went on to become known as St. Valentine's Day, thanks to the saint himself. During the reign of Emperor Claudius II, young men were banned from marrying, for Claudius believed that soldiers would be reluctant to work long campaigns if they had wives. A Christian priest named Saint Valentine was sympathetic to those who wished to marry, and conducted many secret weddings for them. He was put to death for his actions on 14th February 269AD, and passed a final message to his friend, the blind daughter of his jailor, which became known as the very first Valentine's card.

It is the angelic cherubs who are more commonly associated with Valentine's Day than faeries, mainly because the Roman god Cupid (known as Eros to the Greeks), who was god of love and all things erotic, was watered down by the church (as were all pagan gods, celebrations and symbols) to become a fat little cherub with a magical bow and arrow, rather than the manly god he once was.

Fairies, however, are active on this special day because they adore matters of the heart, whether it be the benevolent and gentle fairies of love and romance, or the more malevolent or trickster fairies, who love to meddle in human affairs!

Fairies of Love and Romance

Fairies are intimately connected with love and romance - there are countless tales of faeries taking mortal lovers in folklore, using their faerie glamor to enchant and bewitch both men and women.

The most famous of faerie romances is that between Oberon, King of the Fairies, and his Queen Titania, from A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare. The more mischievous fey enjoy meddling in human affairs, and like Puck and the fairies in this story, they can enjoy causing chaos and havoc in the love lives of those they encounter.

However, fairies can also be very helpful in love. There are many fairy love spells out there, which ask the fairies to help attract romance or heal broken hearts. Many fey beings are connected with fertility and the more primal sides of love, while others have a more gentle energy and can help with romance and a loving heart.

Some faerie kings and queens associated with love and relationships include Aine, an Irish fairy and loving fertility goddess, Flora, a Greek/Roman fertility fairy goddess, and Oonagh, a fairy queen of the Tuatha de Danann who helps with monogamy and relationships.
