My current favourite is The Faerie of Growth and my least favourite is Prick Up Your EarsSort through the piles and find your favorite card and your least favorite card. Imagine these two Fae face to face.
I don't think that they are friends. They move in discrete circles but they DO know OF each other. I think that the Fae on Prick Up Your Ears thinks The Faerie of Growth is a little self-absorbed. The Faerie of Growth could care less. She has an important job to do.What would they have to say to each other? Are they friends?
They don't really talk to each other or interact at all - which the 'big-eared' fae thinks is a little ironic. ' If we do not talk, there is nothing to listen to? If we don't listen, how do we learn? We should be able to learn from each other, don't you think? I'm not making a big issue of this but without learning any growth is bound to be stunted.'Are they enemies? Do they get along or do they fight?
They tell me that at the moment they are not prepared to say...What secrets do they know about each other?
I am on trial. They haven't decided. I might be too unresponsive and to filled with human concern. Am I worth their efforts? 'Will you listen?' asks the one with big ears. 'Will you grow?' asks the green one.Do they like you?
The deck and the Heart of Faery itself would be diminished.If the fae that you dislike were to disappear and never again be seen or heard from again, how would that change the community/readings you might do with the deck?
I guess I hadn't really thought about what each and every Fae brings to the equation. Each has a part to play and an offering to make. I shouldn't be quite so dismissive - and I should beware of becoming quite as self-absorbed as the Faerie of Growth otherwise I stand to miss so much.Talk about how the exercise helped you, changed your mind about either fae.
