Faerie Card Reading Week Jan 7-13, 2013
Card: 9 The Queen of Laughter – from The Heart of Faerie deck by Brian and Wendy Froud.
“She is always ready to leap joyously into a situation, grinning mischievously and fluttering her lovely wings as she lands in your soup or on your clean shirt, or in your very serious thoughts. She’s out to have fun and she wants you to come with her. A sense of fun and joy can do more good than almost anything else in most situations. Whenever this queen goes she spreads joy, and when you travel with her you can’t help but spread it, too. Be a little daring. Do something. In Faerie joy is a serious business. Faeries have perfected the art of joy and passing it to humans whenever they can. Sometimes we don’t see it that way.
Often faeries will do things that bring them much joy while we feel more annoyed than anything else at their antics (sock stealing, and car key hiding are good examples). When this happens, when you can’t find your keys anywhere, stop for a moment and listen. You may just be able to hear the silvery laugh of the Queen of Laughter as she leaps between the worlds dangling your keys in her fingertips. Say hello, give her a smile, and she might just do the same for you. Pass her joy on to a friend or a lover and watch your relation blossom.”
Message from the Faeries: We know how hard it is to be human. Some of us have tried it on for size from time to time. We like to take on human form and see the world through your eyes. Sometimes people have allowed us to enter their bodies and allow us to live through them. We feel your pain, your sadness, your loneliness, your despair, your anger and frustration. We have felt your depression. Some of us faeries represent these emotions, and we hover around you when you are down. Because of the dualistic nature of your reality, we like to provide you with balance. So when the grumpy faerie is hanging out with you, you can bet the Queen of Laughter is right there behind them, ready to bring joy and happiness into your life. The choice is yours though, always. It’s ok if you want the grumpy faerie to hang out with you, but we would like you to know that the faeries of joy and happiness are always there too. If you just ask for them to be there to help you and present themselves, they will come and bring laughter into your life. And yes, sometimes when you spend too much time with the grumpy faeries, the faeries of fun and laughter will come along and do something to make you smile just a reminder that life can be fun too. It’s winter time, and the days are shorter with much less sun. It’s a time where you naturally slow down and sometimes feel the weight of winter on your shoulders. We just want to give you a friendly reminder to laugh a little. Read a funny story. Watch a comedy. Tell a silly joke to your friend. Make a funny face. If you don’t do it, we might just have to come along and do it for you. Many blessings to all of you! Smile! Love, The Faeries.
