Fluff (left side) and Puff (right side) have agreed to let me do a reading for them. I am used to doing tarot consultations with couples, but this was a bit odd for me. Why? What’s so special about this couple? Well, for starters they are a couple of bunny slippers.
Yes, you read me correctly. Bunny. Slippers. Fluff and Puff are the somewhat demented, always entertaining bunny slippers who live with Jazz Tremaine. Who’s Jazz? Well just where have you been lately? Jazz is the 700-year-old heroine of Linda Wisdom’s Hex series. The first book , 50 Ways To Hex Your Lover created a lot of buzz in the romance world. But the real surprise hit was the popularity of Fluff and Puff.
Fluff and Puff, what I am going to do here is a relationship reading. I realize that you two aren’t lovers (are you?) but I think this spread will suit nicely. This spread focuses on two individuals creating a whole. Feel free to interject as you see fit.
The first card is how Fluff sees Puff. The 4 of Coins here tells me that Fluff thinks Puff needs to get out a bit more. There is some feeling of resentment about Puff holding back when Fluff would rather get out there and mingle. I take it Fluff is the more gregarious slipper?
Fluff – He sure does need to get out more! Cuz if Puff got out, so would I! But the only time he thinks about getting out is when we’re on a bunny slipper mission. Would it hurt him to want to go to a party instead?
Puff’s first card is the 10 of Cups. You see your partner , Fluff, as being a bit too focused on the emotional joys of life. Perhaps you aren’t as happy with Jazz’s relationships with others as Fluff is? This card makes me think you also are the more grounded of the pair.
Puff – Yeah, Fluff likes to play too much. We’re magick and need to keep our magick up to date. And you gotta admit that Jazz’s boss, Dweezil, is pretty icky. Sure, we don’t go there very often, but it’s always nasty when we do go.
Second card for Fluff is Fluff’s ambitions for the partnership between the two of you. Ah! The Ace of Cups is a lovely card here. Fluff sees this partnership as a way to bring love and joy to all (as well as more carrot cake if there’s a party.)
Fluff – Party yes! And we love making people happy and laugh. We even visit our buddies AshNay and Jordan because they’re so fun to hang out with.
Yet Puff’s card is the much more ambitious Queen of Wands. Puff’s vision for this relationship is to promote Jazz and get her out there more. Puff, do you see yourself as more of the political type?
Puff – Hm, not sure political, but Jazz needs to build up her business. Licorice root isn’t free, ya know. And we really do like her bath products when we have our baths. No reason why we can’t smell nice too. At least she doesn’t toss us into the washing machine. Probably a good thing. So she needs more work to keep us in the style we’ve become accustomed to.
Fluff’s third card represents fears for the partnership. This is what worries you the most. The Page of Cups which is the card of the psychic messenger. You really hate that don’t you, Fluff? When some new clue pops up and Jazz has to go off again to save the … well, at least get everyone out of trouble.
Fluff – She needs to take us with her more often! Things happen that’s scary, and sometimes we can help. We want her to know we can do magick stuff too. And bite ankles.
Puff’s fears are shown in the Heirophant. The Heirophant is the rule maker and boundary keeper. Looks like Puff really hates being thrown under the bed or in the back of the closet. Puff wants to break a few rules and make sure those in power are the right people.
Puff – Or under pillows! Hellloooo! Like we still can’t hear? Let’s talk ick factor here. A nice soundproof bubble would be nice sometimes or at least the freedom to roam, but she hasn’t allowed that in awhile unless we vow not to get into trouble. And the vow she makes us take means if we break it we’ll end up in some pretty gross slime so she’ll know what happened.
Interesting! The connecting card shows what pulls you two together and it’s the Devil card. This card is all about temptation and mischief. I’m pretty sure there’s carrot cake and licorice in all that food there as well. Looks like Fluff and Puffy, you two are hellbent for stirring up trouble. Not to be evil by any means. It’s just what you do.
Fluff – Mischief, us?
Puff – Yeah, considering what’s said, we’re actually very well behaved. You know like those stories in the tabloids where they claim Madonna’s having an alien baby or Bigfoot was sighted again. Bigfoot’s really shy and he’d never allow himself to be photographed.
Puff – That’s true. We bring fun into your life. We’re the Masters of our Universe!!!
Fluff – This was very cool Arwen. Thank you for doing this for us.
Puff – Yeah, thanks! I’ll promise to get out more with Fluff and not just when we’re on the hunt for something.
