Reading about a relationship / Part B

Hi there,

I was thinking about the combination the Garden and the Rider I got as an advice yesterday. This clearly means I should go out there, and have some fun, make new acquaintance. I did a reading with the Garden as a keycard, asking “What kind of place ?”. Here are the cards (they should be read in a line).

the clouds 06the ship 03the tree 05the garden (20)Mountain 21the lily 30the bouquet 09the man 28

the Clouds, the Ship, the Tree, the Garden, the Mountain, the Lily, the Flower, the Man

I remember the 4 central cards I just had when I did my Grand Tableau : Mountain, Lily, Garden and the Anchor. There are some strong connections between the 2 apparently. When doing the Grand Tableau, I was actually asking myself if that meant a place in the mountain, a remote location, Canada, North America, some sort of a resort … And I am finding those cards again in this no layout spread around the theme card : the Garden.

The Clouds and the Ship together in combination seem to imply that there is a distance : I should get there by plane, or train. But it is not next to where I live.

The Ship and the Tree and the Garden. That is some sort of a spiritual gathering. I actually thought of going to some conferences around topics that interest me. I don’t plan to travel in the very next future … this is very intriguing. Maybe these cards are simply telling something that is not going to happen in the next future, but later on. That would actually make sense. The Tree before the Garden could mean a park, but also adds a spiritual notion to it. It is anyway a quiet place, filled with nice energies.

The Garden and the Mountain : This place is a remote place, maybe in the Mountain.

The Mountain and the Lily : a place in winter, under the snow, a high spiritual place. Very serene.

The Lily and the Bouquet followed by the Man : I could meet someone there. The Bouquet means beauty but also Joy, Happiness.

As a conclusion, this could speak about a conference, a seminar, a place where one feels concerned about a spiritual path. Or simply a very quiet place. The place is located far away, not in my neighborhood. I intended to go to a shop that sells tarot cards and books; but I am not sure this is the place that this draw is referring to. According to me, this speaks about another place than that shop. We’ll see. But I don’t intend to go in a remote place in the mountain at the moment. Yet, this is actually what the cards seem to speak about. I will see how this unfolds ! Feel free to add your comments ! 🙂

5 cards layout about this evening

Hi there,

taking a little break from the Grand Tableau’s theory. This will be a case analysis using a 5 card layout. Context : a friend of mine asked me to help his son with his studies. I usually am at ease with teaching, but I have never done that sort of activity with a teenager. So I prepared some stuff to help him out: some learning tools. I wanted my approach to be very different than the one he has been used to with his teacher. The one point is that he has to be motivated. I reasoned that it had to be a departure of what he already knew. So I wanted my approach to be fun and playful. That way, he would actually learn stuff without even knowing. These are the 5 cards I got :

the book 26the child 13the clouds 06the star 16the tree 05

the Book, the Child, the Clouds, the Star, the Tree

The Book stands for studies, learning. Matter of fact, I am going to help a young teenager (the Child) with his English speaking skills. He dislikes learning his lessons,and is acting quite grumpy (child+clouds). The point is that he has to learn to enjoy learning. Right now, he doesn’t feel like learning could be any fun. The experience he had with his teacher in class wasn’t “all that” as he told me ! He finds it utterly boring, difficult (clouds) … and he is being very lazy with the whole thing (clouds and stars). I yet have to jump in and make him feel like this could actually be fun. The Star and The Tree speaks to me as being a clean base again, something creative and I think they might represent me and my approach.

What actually happened :
He was at home with a friend of the same age, so in the end the class was given to the 2 kids. We made flash cards with drawings and vocabulary. Many topics were covered. It was very funny, and very productive. Many laughters. Full of energy. Very creative : the star card I suppose. We reached what we wanted : he is now motivated. And managed to view it as a challenging game and not something boring and dull. They actually remained focused for 1 hour and half. Prior to the lesson, I asked how long he thought he could remained focused, and then should take a break : 40 minutes was his opinion. I am glad it all went well.

Cheers

Reading Case analysis around summer time romance

Hi there,

I yet have found a reading I did a while back which is around the topic of relationship.
Context : single, going on an extended holiday, wanting to know if a summer time romance would be on the menu !

The past (3 cards)

the Bear (15) , the Heart (24) , the Coffin (8)

This is reflecting the relationship that ended. That part of the spread was representing the past that ended, and has no more influence on her at the present. On a sidenote, the Bear is here standing as the very possessive nature of her ex lover. So sometimes, when you will see the Bear associated with the Heart, think about asking the querent whether she thinks her partner is possessive, jealous and such. When you do a reading using the “grand tableau”, you have more than 3 cards, and you will have more clues whether to translate that as possessiveness or just passion without the bad aspect such as jealousy. Of course, the Coffin here says that passion or that possessive relationship is over.

What is happening right now in regard of her decision (which is to find someone), opening the door to that eventuality. (3 cards)

the Cross (36), The Tree (5), The Crossroads (22)

She is actually at the Crossroads. The decision to leave her ex is one thing. But the fact that she now decides to find love is another decision. The Cross is there to imply she is making an important decision, she is at a turning point of her life. The Crossroads is at the end of the line so I see it as her leaving what is unnecessary behind and moving on. She has a high ideal and she is pursuing it. The high ideal is to me the combination shown by the Cross and the Tree.

The next future and the outcome of her question : Was she going to meet someone in the summer time ?

the Tower (19), the Sun (31), the Fish (34)

She was going on holiday and wanted to know if there was a potential for a relationship during summer time. I would have love to tell her about summer romance, but with that combo; it looked unlikely. It was showing a place by the ocean during the summer (the Sun with the Fish). Also implied it could be expensive ! But all in all, the Tower is not exactly the card you get announcing a relationship. The Tower stands for isolation, loneliness in this draw. It doesn’t mean an awful holiday but don’t expect to meet the love of your life. Be self reliant, enjoy the summer. Make the most of it, love is probably on the way but it will come later, at the right time !

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 tree (5)

The tree is the card for health in the Mademoiselle Lenormand Oracle deck.. Probably because its priviledged link to the sun and the water, trees (and plants as well) are usually seen as a good sign. It represents the cycle life, from birth to death, and also renewal. The tree makes the connection between the earth and the sky; it is an image of spiritual elevation. This tree is to be seen with foliage, it looks healthy. It has strong roots and is firmly planted on the ground. Stable. It is there for a long time. A tree takes time to grow. A tree is a living thing. It is a very good metaphor to represents us as a being who is the result of our experience. Like some tree, we need a tutor when we are growing. We have roots. We are affected by what the roots, the experience of life is bringing to us and our soul and our outlook is affected by that. We are at best, trying to reach our ideal just as the tree is reaching to the sky. We also may provide shelter for those who are near us, just as the tree may as well. We also bear “fruits”.

This card is from the mystical lenormand.

Cheers
Jayce
