Daily reading N°3 about my trip to Paris, France

Hi there,

this is the third reading I did when I was in Paris.

After going to the Sacre Coeur and Montmartre, I went back at the hotel in order to drop all the little things I bought along the way. I also had to charge the battery of my camera. So, I took the opportunity to make another 5 cards draw to see about the rest of my day.

Here are the cards:

the clover 02the child 13the sun 31the letter 27the star 16

the clover, the child, the sun, the letter, the star

The second part of my day was a fun ride. Walked a lot again ! And I went to new places. Places I have never been to when I was in Paris, but that are actually quite famous. That is “le quartier Saint Germain”. I decided to go there by walk from one of the bridges, because I knew the views would be beautiful. At that time of the day, the sun was slowly going down offering myriads of colors. Honestly I felt like I was in one of those movies …

pont-11

This is a picture I took on the bridge as the sun was going down, and the dark clouds were taking place in the sky. Quite dramatic. Unfortunately this picture doesn’t quite capture the color of that moment. I yet have to learn to master that camera a lot better !

sunset-in-paris

This is something typical from Paris. The old bookstands. There are so many of them. You can find very old books there. Also, stamps, comics, posters, calendars …

bookstands

I took a coffee at “Les Deux Magots” which is one of the famous places in Saint Germain. Le café de Flore is just a few walk steps away and is another famous place. Huysmans, Giraudoux, surrealist writers , Camus, Faulkner, Simone de Beauvoir … They all have been there on a regular basis …

les-2-magots

I visited some bookstores in the streets nearby. Actually took a look at some novels, … After that I went back to the “Rue saint Honoré” and had a nice walk enjoying the city lights.

The Ritz’s entrance on the Place Vendome. A mythical hotel. I’d love to stay at that hotel someday.

And then, to finish the evening, the Champs Elysees again.

So, if I look at the cards in the draw :

the clover, the child : me enjoying new places in the city.( what I mean by new is “new to me” as I have never been there).

the sun, the letter, the star : related to the weather and time of the day. the sun was going down at the beginning of my walk and finished in the night. Also it is related to famous places (the sun and the star) . Places made famous by writers and intellectuals (the letter).

Cheers,
Hope you enjoyed the little trip

The Clover : a flash card

Hi there,

I have been looking around my diaries of readings to put other post about finances and love topic with the Lenormand deck. And I also played with the concept of flash cards that I am currently developing as a support for classes on this deck. The Rider as a flash card has been posted previously, and this time it is the Clover. On a funny note, everytime I see a clover, I think of marzipan. As a child I went to Germany and Austria around January and it is the tradition apparently to offer lucky charms such as a little pig, a horseshoe … That kind of things, in marzipan or chocolate. Usually around the pig or on the horseshoe, there is a clover of course … I also bought my first Zigeuner deck around that time. It is a little divination deck, very popular over there. I used it a lot and should post about that one too 😀

Anyway, here is the flash card I made around the Clover, hope you like it !
Cheers

“How someone looks” using the lenormand cards

This a case analysis using the Lenormand cards to determine how someone looks like. The key card here is the Man.

The Snake (7), The Clover (2), The Book (26), The Man (28), The Cross (36), The Scythe (10), The Bouquet (9)

The question : what is he going to look like ?

The Book stands for someone discreet, private. With the Clover on its left, I tend to think he is someone curious and interested in many different topics. Intelligent (the Snake and the Book), but someone who doesn’t brag about it (The Book). And with the Snake on the far left, I would even say he is someone very modest, somewhat self deprecating. With a sense of humor that is smart, you have to allow some time for this individual to open himself. The cards on the right now, the Cross : tired and or lonely, coming through a hard period of his life with the Scythe on its right. I also thought of scars with that three cards association. The Bouquet also means good looking. Conclusion would be good looking and sharp, great sense of humor but somewhat discreet, and the cards on the right are telling me something about “being hurt”, having scars …

Lenormand cards : a case study about finances

Here is another case study with the Lenormand cards. This time it is a reading about the querent’s financial situation. Basically the querent has been through a period of harsh financial times and wanted to know whether this would last or would improve !

The key card chosen was the card representing the cash flow, thus The Bear.

the Dog (18), The Snake (7), The Letter (27), the Bear (15), the Horseman (1), the Child (13), the Fish (34)

The cards on the left are representing the past troubles, especially with the Snake. The cards on the right though are showing that her cashflow is going to improve. The Rider shows the move about the topic, here money. The Child offers novelty, and/or something small. And finally the Fishes that may represent wealthier times ahead. We didn’t speak much about it, but the cards on the left seemed to imply a cheat around a contract, a deception around her activities. The Fish also might speak of a free lance activity, not an employee. Currently though, she is an employee …

It then surfaced that the querent wished to develop a project along her job and wasn’t sure that it would be beneficial financially. The querent wanted to keep her job at the time being (for safety) and start to develop her project on the side. So this is not about leaving a job abruptly, but going on smoothly from one level to another. This question asked was : Could that activity be interesting financially ?

That activity could only be developed as a free lance and not as an employee. Therefore the Fish was chosen.

the Clover (2), the Storks (17), the Child (13), The Fish (34), the Bear (15), The Horseman (1), the Key (33).

Only positive cards here. The Clover, the Storks and the Child seemed to say that the change would be making her very happy about it, and the Child means novelty but also small. Next to the Storks which means changes, this seems to be linked to our previous conversation around the first draw. The changes would be done step by step, in order to make things secure. (It is always nice to get clues like that, clues that are telling you that you are proceeding and reading the right way). The Key on the absolute right are giving an indication that there might be security to be found in the end. The Bear speaks about the financial aspect of the question of course, and also very positive here on the right side of the Fish, as it increases the potential for her to make money. (Bear means big). The Rider is yet another clue that money is indeed coming in ! And the Key is also a sign that this is the way to go for her. Being a free lance is what is going to be beneficial for her in the long run.

Hope you enjoyed this case analysis,
Cheers

Lenormand case study : a reading about a travel

Hi there,

this is yet another case study using the 2 paths spread. Some years ago, the querent made a trip overseas, and she is actually wondering if it would be wise for her to go next summer over there again. As this is a long travel, I picked the ship as the theme card. The theme card is always taken out of the deck and placed on the table before picking up the other cards.

Question asked : is it wise for her to travel overseas next summer ?

first line stands for “if the querent is going”, the second line is “if the querent is not going”.

Here is the first line :

the Clouds, the Whip, the Star, the Mice, the Storks

This doesn’t look too good. The Clouds speaks about confusion and the Whip indicates troubles and arguments about this ideal (the Star). The Mice and the Storks are there to show that there would be losses, stressful changes along the way. The fact that the Storks are ending the line are though positive, changes can still be coming but the “flight” of the Storks will only take place if the underlying issues shown by the previous cards are resolved. Better wait before crossing the ocean !

The second line on the contrary is incredibly positive ! The Man and the Letter, followed by the Clover speaks about a positive and uplifting message from a man. The querent is single so there might be something very interesting here … The Woman and the Bouquet is the querent and it shows her as being content and very happy. The Letter and the Bouquet can both be a sign of a proposition and/or invitation. Chances are that by next summer, there will be a change of plans and something very positive will take place. Something that will make her a lot happier than that trip overseas.

Feedback to come !

hope you enjoyed this case study around the Lenormand cards,
Cheers

Lenormand oracle deck : a case analysis about love

This is a case analysis with the Lenormand cards. The reading is about a love relationship, and I decided that the 2 paths spread would the one to give the most information. This spread uses a theme card, which is taken out of the deck and placed on the table. Since it is a reading about love, the theme card is The Heart (24). The 2 paths spread is useful to have informations and insights about 2 different options.

Context of the question : she is single, and is hoping for a relationship that would last and of course make her fulfilled and happy. She has a friend who is very kind, and at times, she’s been wondering whether that friendship would evolve into a love relationship. Or is there someone else out there for her ?

Question asked :
Is my friend meant to be my partner in a love relationship or am I meant to be with someone else ?

The cut : the Rider (1) + the Book (26).

The cut is indeed mysterious ! There is something definitely on the way. I don’t believe she is going to remain single that long. She is going to have unexpected news; or meet someone by surprise. Now, I have to look at the other cards because this may also be her friend (the rider) who is having a secret. Is he secretly attracted ? My first impression though was that there is someone coming, someone on the way. The book also seems to say that this person is unknown to the querent.

Now for the 2 lines :
The first line stands for the person the querent knows already, only a friend. No love relationship going on yet. The second line stands for some other person that might be the querent’s soulmate.


the Tree, the Scythe, the Mice, the Lady, the Child

The first line isn’t bad, but it seems to speak more about a story that would help her to rebound, gain some faith in life. But according to me, the idea of a relationship with that person is going to be short lived. The friendship may of course remain between the two of them, but it won’t be a love relationship. Actually I think the friend is here shown by the child card. He is someone playful and helping here to cope through the painful times (The Mice).

The Man, the Dog, the Clover, the Tower, the Key

The second line :
The Man card is easy to understand, and with the Dog by its side : it seems to scream “soulmate” right here. The Dog indicates someone faithful and that can be trusted. That one is a keeper : friendly, loving and reliable ! The Clover and the Tower might give some clues about the nature of the relationship or his personality. The Clover : funny, bright, good sense of humor,positive thinking. The Tower could mean that he is single and somewhat isolated. But also, may be an indication about the way he looks, the tower stands for someone tall. The Key is the yes card, that person is going to be a key player in her life. The key is a sign of destiny !

(On a sidenote, I also sensed that the Tower here was the sign of her ideal. This guy seems to be keeping up with her. The Child in the first line seems to say that her friend is just that : a friend, not someone who could live up to her high hopes and ideal. She needs a man, not a little boy …)

As a conclusion, better remain friends with the person she knows already. They are fond of each other and their friendship is stable. And there is someone coming into her life that is going to be her partner, and that person will be very important to her.

Feedback pending 😉
She will keep me posted !

Hope you enjoyed the case analysis about this love reading,
Jayce

The Clover (2)

The clover
This is the second card of the Lenormand oracle deck.
This card stands for fast luck. Not the biggest luck or opportunity of all time, but a very good sign anyway. The clover traditionally stands for hope, something to be happy about. Good times, cheerfulness are indicated here.Don’t forget the lifetime of a clover is not very long, so grab the opportunity while it is there because it won’t last. The timeframe for the clover is between 1 to 14 days. The clover makes the surrounding cards meaning as “being younger”, “being shorter”.
Of course, it is considered as a positive card. As a person, it is the happy go lucky kind.

This is an introduction to the clover, hope this helps.

Cheers
Jayce
