Reading using the No-layout spread
This morning, I asked the question would the legal battle be resolved shortly?
I used Sylvie Steinbach’s No Layout spread, from her wonderful book, The Lenormand Oracle. (Please check out my link on the sidebar to check out a great workshop, free! to learn more about Sylvie’s method)
I concentrated on the Man for my husband, the Woman for the legal opponent, and the Ring for a deal. Shuffling and concentrating, I laid out all the cards in the deck, and picked out the the cards. I then proceeded to read the 2 cards on either side of the focus card. Here’s what I got:
These were the first cards to come up. The Key card describes resolutions to difficult situations; it is also a “Yes” card -and says that a major event, a twist of fate is about to happen. Next to the Coffin, it says to me that there is a major change in this situation surrounding the woman that is about to take place.
The Tree & the House threw me a little bit…. in response to the question I asked, it would seem to say that there is going to a postive growth period for the family with this major change. If it’s referring to a time frame, then the Tree is saying that this event will be happenning either in the next 5 days (by Thursday)or by May.
One thing that hit me, is that on another level it’s describing that she’s been in a deep depression/spiritual breakdown. Her mental health is at issue (if you knew this woman, you’d know that to be true).
The Tree+House could also be referring to a health center of some kind. She’s going to need help. This is off message, but I think still true and relevant.
Next came the Man:
The Garden and the Mountain shows that in the past, my husband has hit obstacles from this “spiritual group” over and over… these two cards talk of resistance, retrictions, opposition…very true.
But! in the near future, he has documents coming from a distance! He is getting news around this case. Hopefully it means signing papers, but I’m not sure. There’s definite new coming on the case though.
The Mountain and the Letter, could also describe the mood of my husband around this matter, Unreachable. He has been closed off in another mental place, of fighting this demon, for years. It’s been a very difficult time in our lives.
The Ring showed up last:
Well this looks good! The Whips and the Bouquet talk about a resolving of a dispute, a positive ending to it.
And the Scythe and the Clover also talk about a positive decision being made; or a lucky swift ending to it all.
So I think, I can pretty safely say that this long term legal battle is about to come to an end, and in a way that is of benefit to my husband. The only 2 cards that I’m not completely satisfied with are the Tree and the House. If anyone else has some insights to this reading, I would welcome your slant. Just remember, I’m trying to look at these cards in the context of the question I asked🙂
