The Fairy Queen does not have to defend her power. She simply is power. She has spent Her lifetime gaining knowledge through Her personal trials and tribulations. She has educated Herself meticulously. She is well aware of Her weakness and is always in the pursuit of knowledge to hone new skills. She also knows Her strengths and utilizes them with confidence. She is without question, a benevolent ruler and mercy is a hallmark of the Fairy Queen. Justice is also held in reverence with Her. Any crime will be fairly weighed, and the justice will be swift. The Fairy Queen expects you to be your best self while in Her presence. Not because She demands your respect - She has lived so much more than you can possibly imagine and does not need it – respect is a shared endeavor, and Her desire is that you respect yourself.
To encounter the Fairy Queen is not only an omen that victory is at hand, but in fact, has already been won. She has come to remind you that you already possess what you need for your accomplishment. Especially in a scenario that feels impossible, Her appearance signals that perhaps you are neglecting to acknowledge your greatest of assets. The Fairy Queen does not need a crown of jewels to mark Her station, because Her power comes from Her experiences. You must not think of only appearances or limit yourself when in the company of the Queen. Think instead, in terms of those qualities that have you worked to establish and made uniquely your own. Your success will be manifested as a result from the strength of your character won in the challenges you faced. The appearance of the Fairy Queen does not necessarily mean that your journey will be easy, only that at the end, you will prevail with grace.
It should be noted that if one is seeking escape, this is the one venture that is sure to fail within the presence of the Fairy Queen. The Queen does not surrender. She faces Her fate with courage.
Generosity is the realm of the Fairy Queen as well. So, if one is looking to hold onto their money, the Fairy Queen is an omen that this is not the time to be miserly.
