Fairy post #27- Unicorns and other fey energy


Faerie News


Fae Magazine in the UK announced & pictured The Australian Fairy Tale Society's new ezine in its unicorn edition, timing with release of my song "Evander the Unicorn", which Fae's Editor Karen Kay has endorsed on Facebook. Over the moon our hemispheres are bunting, astride our steeds! Join us in feting (or shall we say fée-ting) one of my favourite creatures, the unicorn.



Read about The Three Wishes Faery Festival,
 unicorn meditations, spells, stories, fashion & folklore, and enjoy our equine music while reading - or riding!


“Evander the Unicorn” is free until October, in tribute to Fae Magazine

Ah-ha! Here is one dancing now... 

Erin McCuskey of Luxville & Vic Fairy Tale Ring

A trio of Luxfillian frogs? Is this what she is dancing to?




Current theme: The Frog King! 
What is a golden ball? 
Can we keep our promises? 
How do we feel about parental power?
Social mobility, anyone? 
To kiss or to slap?





12 Dancing Princesses by Katharine Cameron 1909
Next theme: 12 Dancing Princesses! 
When do we really come of age? 
Why does secrecy matter? 
Do you prefer red sequinned slippers, 
glass shoes or seven league boots?

Seems Faery magic can pluck off a nose, sing from a kettle, jingle the bells on a palfrey’s bridle, or pop out of a golden goose’s bottom... and a whole lot more mischief, magnificence and munificence. What does it mean for you? Share your ideas for future conversations via any of my networks along the fairy tale web :-) x Louisa John-Krol x
