Bear – Storks – Crossroads

April 15, 2010

These cards were part of a bigger spread for my husband. They show the near future (hopefully very near!)

Bear/Storks is a combination that anyone would be happy to see, especially in this economy; it foretells financial improvements.

Crossroads, on it’s own, shows that with those financial improvements there are choices to be made….there are options that present themselves, so to speak.

If I were to also combine the Storks and the Crossroads, they talk about expansion and diversification. Either way, money is coming in and there will be great activity and choices because of it.

I have to laugh, we are busily flowing the energy as if it has arrived in the NOW. The last 2 days we have been test driving new automobiles, in preparation for the increased finances! We now know what car we will buy for a replacement.

VW won out over another Hyundai Santa Fe (which I’ve loved), for it’s diesel engine and resale value. I have a Golf Wagon with all the gadgets coming to my driveway in the very near future……mark my words! 🙂 and it gets so much better fuel mileage than most cars or suvs!

Diesel cars have been the norm in Europe for years – they’ve been fortunate, at least they’ve had the  choice!!

And that’s the color!!


Looking for clues….

April 11, 2010

I have been out for the count over this past week, with back/muscle problems. My shoulder/neck, back areas became ONE BIG muscle spasm!! and I found myself on the sidelines having to take muscle relaxants to survive. ugh!

I kept asking myself, why didn’t I see this in any of my cards?? Well, now that the fog has cleared from my brain (!) I went back over my notes and found at least one or two references to my health;, but I didn’t see it at the time.

The above, isn’t the strongest link, but it still could relate. I had been thinking it was a woman with money, or that it was showing financial growth (hope springs eternal! lol)-

Woman/Bear can denote a strong woman, a motherly/nurturing woman, an overweight woman. I’m definitely the first two, and only just a bit overweight but not overly so! 🙂

The Tree references health issues with this woman. Bear/Tree though puts the emphasis on diet and nutrition, and the stomach more than anything else; and I have been more conscious of what goes into my mouth.

Generally, maybe this would have been an indicator, but it’s not a definite ‘hit’ in my opinion.

Earlier in the week, I also drew these 3 cards as part of a bigger spread:

At the time of the reading, I took it to be referring to a legal judgement, a decision concerning legal or big business. I remember mentioning possible hospital connection and surgery, but nothing else.

Well the Tower, can refer to the Spine!! I don’t usually look for health and body parts – so I missed it completely.

So here we have the Spine card, followed by the Scythe which points to accidents, followed up with the Tree – which is all about health! Definitely a clue that there would be health problems conerning my back and I never got the message.

I drew these cards last Monday, and I think my troubles started on Tuesday. I seem to be ok for a few hours in the morning, and then the spasms hit and I’m stuck on the recliner with a heating pad for the rest of the day. This has been my week.

Metaphysically speaking, I shouldn’t be surprised really. The back represents your support system and how well you feel supported  by the Universe. I’ve been awfully stressed out/tensed with financial delays, and guess that my back spasms are mirroring those feelings –

Even when I know better, I can’t help but get nervous by what I’m observing. It’s another reminder to me to stay focused on what I want instead, rather than observing what is. Sometimes easier said than done!!!

Well, at least the cards did hint at this, even if I missed it entirely-

House – Letter – Lily

April 8, 2010

Every time I think Life has settled down, something else arrives that challenges me! Lots of personal stress and physical work too, which has left me with a pulled muscle in my writing arm – and I’ve got to say, I didn’t see getting hurt in the cards!

It is my strongest desire to write consistently, ideally daily; I hope that I will be able to do that soon.

On to the cards 🙂

House/Letter: Property deals/real estate contract, family papers, family news, letter/news coming to the home….dealing with papers around the home or concerning the home!

Letter/Lily: News that brings serenity/peace, news from a father figure or parents, old records of some sort, paperwork from a man that fits the Lily card (in my case, there are 2).

So! there are a lot of ways I could go with this combination.

There might be a contract done on our house that we’re relieved and happy about (we have it up for sale).

Or there could be family news that’s a relief, or family news from my husband’s parents (mine are deceased).

We could be dealing with property records/deeds….? or family geneology records?

There could be news that comes to the home that brings peace of mind; or news from the Lily man – this would either be my ex-husband (yuck! less said the better! lol) or the lawyer for the other side in my husband’s lawsuit.

Lots of ways to interpret…and probably more than one meaning will apply:)

update: so far this seems to have referred to changing the price on our house and dealing with the real estate contract to reflect this. Why the Lily? I think we both felt a sense of peace and relief, as we put the house on for a price that showed that we were both ready to release it to someone else. We’re ready to move on.

Child – Mice – Cross

March 30, 2010

I unfortunately knew what this was referring to very soon after drawing it.

My son is weighed down with papers to write, and finals to study for…..never mind being short of money! He was completely stressing out and having what he calls ‘a meltdown’ – I know it will pass, but it’s hard to see him getting so worked up about everything.

I hope tomorrow it will show some relief!

Man – Ship – Scythe

March 29, 2010

It’s been a hectic, busy week with no time for writing……..I hate that!

On March 25th (Thurs) I drew these cards. My initial thought was that a man at a distance either was making an important decision (which I assumed would affect us) or that this man at a distance was going to get a shock or have an accident…or maybe was having surgery.

I thought that covered all the bases! lol

I threw out at the end of my verbal string of ideas, ‘Oh maybe someone’s having car trouble or has a car accident’…..

Yesterday, March 28th, my husband got ready to drive our Boxer to a nearby park for a long walk through the woods; only to discover that the battery was dead! He spent the next few hours getting the car in working order again.

Moral of this story: throw out every idea that you have about a combination of cards, because it just might turn out that the one thought you have and don’t share is the correct one!

If I remember right, Sylvie mentions in her book that Ship/Scythe can mean an interrupted trip – so this definitely fit the bill.

I still might hear about the man at a distance, but I found it interesting that it was really about our car, first and foremost! 🙂

Man – Clover – Mountain

March 23, 2010

Clover/Mountain can describe a vacation, or a resort, but it can also denote a retreat. I know that this is most often meant in the terms of a  holiday, but I thought it might also just mean r-e-t-r-e-a-t!.

My husband, (possibly the Man here) has retreated to the outdoors today. It’s raining, and he’s taking advantage of the fact to burn branches on the property. He has had a few really bad days, both physically and mentally, and decided that being outside in the elements would be beneficial and grounding.

He is definitely in retreat!

Now there are other ways to read these cards.

Man/Clover could be a lucky man, or a man who takes risks….this leads to possibly an opportunist. It could also be saying that  fortunate opportunities are presented to the man….that there’s a lucky break for him.

It all depends on whether you decide to combine the two cards, or read them singly and string together a sentence.

So, maybe there is a lucky break coming for the man coming from a distance away….a mountainous region, like Montana (! haha) or Switzerland 🙂 OR it represents a risk taker/opportunist from such a place…..this actually would make sense for our scenarios right now.

The first fits, maybe more will in time –

Key – Woman – Snake

March 22, 2010

I have been away for awhile….sorry! My husband had an infected tooth, which then split – we had a week of trying to get that sorted so that he would be comfortable again. We finally made it to the dentist this morning 🙂 It’s hard not being able to deal with problems in an immediate way, (the way we’re used to doing). At any rate, it kept me far away from my computer!

This morning I drew the Key – Woman – Snake. When the Woman/Snake combo comes up for me, it is referring to the deceitful, “enemy” woman that we’re dealing with legally. She’s the Snake Woman! lol

So when I saw that combo, and then saw the Key, my mind immediately said ” Solution with the Snake woman” – I think there is about to be a resolution…..

Now if I hadn’t made that immediate association, I could look at the Key/Woman and come up with the interpretations of a significant woman in my life, or a Spiritual Woman, who is having some kind of difficulty or is lying.

I don’t have any significant females in my life anymore. I’m an only child, and my mother is passed…so I can’t relate to that meaning. I think the first thought is the most likely, but I’ll have to wait and see.

I doubt I will draw the Woman associated with the Snake, once this is over! what a nice thought 🙂

Garden – Whips – Birds

March 15, 2010

I’m not quite sure about these today. I have a couple of ideas that I’ll throw out, because as I’ve found often the one idea that I almost don’t put forward, is the one that the cards are referring to! So although it’s supposed to be a personal draw, I’ll just write down anything that comes to mind.

Whips/Birds brings up the idea of arguments…either a verbal argument, argument over the phone or a couple arguing. Whips also makes me think of exercise/activity, also sexual “stuff”! lol

What about verbal gymnastics? in other words, a debate? or phone sex? LOL  I’m just playing here, but you never know!

Garden/Whips makes me think  of a Gym; also a public argument…….the Garden shows up for me alot to represent the  Internet, or forums/blogs.

Maybe I’m going to become aware of a big dispute on one of the forums that I frequent (!) – if that’s the case, it’s not nice.

I could easily say that there are discussions about exercising and going to a gym, but I kind of doubt it 🙂

Whips/Birds also makes me think of swift communication………..Garden, in this case, probably referring to meetings; SO meetings that bring swift communication.

Humph! Meetings around a dispute (whips) where there are negotiations, or we’re going to hear about such a meeting!

So many ways to go with just 3 cards, aren’t there?

Hopefully I’ll be able to pinpoint which one soon –

Bear – Key – Dog

March 13, 2010

My husband drew these cards this morning (more exciting than mine!)

Bear/Key can mean financial breakthrough or financial reward. The Key shows some kind of resolution around finances (bear)…a surprising twist around money.

This is connected to the Dog, which in our case usually refers to a specific friend as we’re only dealing with very few people right now.

Now, I first read this trio to mean that there was a financial breakthrough or reward for the Dog, but it could also say that we are receiving money from the Dog – I know that if this particular “Dog” gets money, then we will too.

Considering everything we’ve been going through, I’m happy to see such cards 🙂

I just had a peek at Sylvie’s book, “The Lenormand Oracle” to see what it said about the combo Key/Dog. She gives the meanings of soul mate, ‘karmic’ family & counselor. I had to laugh, because this particular Dog has become part of our Spiritual Family. We have come together through some very mysterious circumstances, so it definitely feels that karma is at work. This just reaffirms to me that we will receive money from our karmic family/friend. Interesting.

Freaky Update!

March 12, 2010

On the below drawing (Coffin-Sun-Ship) I had given quite a few combination ideas, some serious, some not so…..

At the very end of the post, I threw out the idea of “death while on holiday”, more joking around than anything. Lo and behold! I received an email from a friend of mine in the UK; she and her husband had just returned from the Maldives for their honeymoon.

They enjoyed snorkeling a great deal, but discovered an elderly man and his wife (in their 80’s) dead floating around in their snorkeling gear! The couple had arrived a few days before! No word on what had happened to them-

I was just shocked and amazed to see that the idea I threw out, off the top of my head, turned out to be correct.

How eery is that?

Coffin – Sun – Ship

March 9, 2010

Out of the ashes, rises something new? That’s what I think of when I see Coffin/Sun. It also conjurs up the thought of successful changes, or an ending that brings about success, or depression lifting (?)..major changes for the better…

Sylvie mentions in her book, The Lenormand Oracle, “winner, rebirth…”.

This pertains to something at a distance. Sun/Ship can mean international success, or a holiday somewhere warm 🙂

As much as I’d like that idea, I know that at the moment it’s not the correct one!

My husband was successful in his court hearing, but we won’t get an award amount for another 2 months, so that certainly isn’t what the cards are describing…….unless something happens out of court shortly, that changes everything?

We are still waiting on the manifestation of funds into the business account – now, they are coming internationally, so maybe these cards are about that. I’m scratching my head on all these “successful draws” – they just haven’t happened yet! so who knows?

Something’s got to break soon.

What else could I make of these? A death while on holiday? a depressing holiday even though it’s somewhere beautiful? lol  Winner of a trip???!! I think I’m punchy today!

March is the month for the ship – maybe our lives completely turn around this month.

Clover – Sun – Child

March 5, 2010

Today is Judgement Day in my husband’s legal case. We are on pins and needles to see how this goes. We had been awarded a fantastic sum by the original judge, but it was overturned when the defendant won an appeal. Now it’s before a new judge, who doesn’t have all the history from the past 7 years….doesn’t have first hand knowledge of what a liar this defendant is either!

We’ve just had to surrender and trust that karmically this will work out the right way! it’s been really tough!

I drew these 3 cards 2 days ago, and had to smile:

So nice to see the Clover and the Sun! both very positive cards.

Combining the two there is sudden success, overnight success, outstanding accomplishment., sudden victory!!, lucky victory! lol

The Clover card, besides having the meanings of positive twists of fate, and the element of surprise, also has the timing of 2 days, 2 weeks or 2 months. Could it be possible that it literally means that there is overnight success in 2 days?

wow! fingers crossed!

The Sun + Child also combines to mean “winner”, so this is looking really good 🙂 I could also play with this combo to mean victory and new beginnings, or a successful offer being put forward….

I don’t think it matters which meaning I try to assign, they are all positive!

Clover – Cross – Man

March 1, 2010

The Clover card brings good luck or unexpected answers to a problem.

I don’t usually like to see the Cross card, but combined with the Clover it has a good meaning. It represents spiritual or religious contentment or blessings for the man.

Cross/Man represents a worried man, or a depressed man. The worried man would be my husband, under alot of stress. It’s nice to see the Clover card there in front of him! Surprising and unexpected solutions and opportunities being presented to him. The Clover also has the timing of ‘2’ – whether 2 days or 2 weeks… I make note of that, because in 2 days he will be with his lawyers in the U.S. – maybe something great happens on Wednesday! fingers crossed 🙂

Crossroads – Storks – Bear

February 25, 2010

Crossroads and Storks show improvements and progress.

How nice to see the Bear following that message! In Sylvie’s system, the Bear represents Finances, money, windfalls etc. – it can also refer to nutrition, food/diet as well.

SO! there are two messages for me here! lol

There are going to be improvements financially for me (hooray) and most likely, a much needed improvement in the way we have been eating! I would very gratefully change the latter, and not look at a baking potato again for a few years! lol  it doesn’t help that my husband and daughter lost weight during this time and look great, and I have stayed stubbornly at the same weight. Something I don’t consider fair!

A look at the week ahead~

February 20, 2010

Being the weekend, it was time to have another go with Kapherus’ Lenormand spread to see what’s ahead in the ‘week’ to come. Like Madame Seaqueen’s Trigger Spread, I suspect that the time will extend out a bit.

I did a spread for my husband, and it is still saying the same thing – we are still on track, but it just hasn’t arrived yet

I decided to charge the Man to represent the House of “J” (this is the invisible placeholder in the middle of the spread, in which the charged subject is looked at in combination with the card that actually falls in this position); focusing on the question “what lies ahead this week for “J”?”

This is what I drew:

Interestingly, the Man falls in the position of the House of “J”……..  I took this to mean that “J” will be having important dealings with another man this week.

Key/Garden combines for the meanings of a spiritual/metaphysical group, or workshops on one hand. It could also just read singly to say “Important/significant meetings”.

I think the man connected with either the spiritual/metaphysical group or key meetings, is either a lawyer or a male representative from the group.

The reading goes on to say that there will be negotiations for a deal (Ring/Birds). Another possible meaning is that there will be a phone call that a deal is struck with the group representative.

My husband is due to fly back to the states, for a final showdown in court on March 2nd; but my cards keep hinting at coming to some kind of an agreement before then.

Just maybe, this is actually the week 🙂 we shall see.

Funny enough, this line of cards, also sounds like a wedding celebration of a man that “J” must know. This doesn’t ring a bell at all, but I’ll note it just in case. Maybe we’re hearing about it….
