Reading about relationship

Hi there,

Phoenix proposed a very interesting spread on her blog which is http://phoenixoracle.wordpress.com/ which got my interest.

I like this spread as it doesn’t involve to many cards, and it yet proposes an advice. I first did a spread asking for a general. But the cards didn’t seem to focus on anything. I noted it down though and might post about it. But I did another reading focusing then about the topic of “relationship”. Here are the cards.

The mice 23the man 28the snake 07

—–the garden (20)the rider 01

——the lily 30

The situation : the Mice, the Man, the Snake
well, the man card is not in such good company here. Still, to remain on a positive note : the Mice diminish the surrounding cards. I would say here that I finally got rid of a nuisance. Someone destructive and a real troublemaker. It probably still have to work on it, the “getting over it”, as those cards show up representing the current situation.

The advice : the Garden, the Rider
Go out ! Get involved in an outside activity. Meet new people. I thought about going around for a walk in the park as well : there is one next to where I live.

The outcome : the Lily
I don’t know whether this stands for the season : the winter; or if it means there is some bliss to come my way but not very soon. The “not very soon” factor is because the Lily : it can take some time before evolving. Either way, the Lily is a good card that represents the return to a state that is the complete opposite of the Mice. A return to harmony.

I am always looking at the cut : in this reading it was the Clover and the Heart. It definitely looks like having some luck in matters of the heart.

Cheers,

Jayce

Reading about a position at work

Here is a case analysis about situation at the workplace. Will there be a renewal of the contract ?

Cards describing the querent : The Bouquet, The Crossroad, The Storks

These cards are describing the person in front of the situation. Accepting changes gracefully, willing to take an opportunity, seeing the positive aspect in a change. The other cards in the spread were not that positive as you can read below … But it is anyway showing that even if the answer is not good in the end, she has the opportunity to bounce back, which may be more important in the long run.

the bouquet : beauty, happiness, grace, a very positive card
the crossroad : decision , moving, parting of ways
the stork : change, moving, flexibility

The Cloud, The Moon, The Snake

The surrounding energy at work : worries caused by the atmosphere at the working place which is not good. Stabbing in the back may take place, one is not anyway able to see the trouble stated there in full clarity, one can only feel it if being intuitive.

the clouds : troubles, clouded thinking, arguments
the moon : intuition, creativity, feelings (always look at the surrounding cards with the moon, it seems to grab the energy of the surrounding cards, it is a very emphatic card)
the snake : knowledge, a woman, troubles, snickering person, someone difficult ( for good or bad)

The Mice, the Fox, the House

State of things right now : one doesn’t belong to the same family as the rest of the people at work. Loss of the job is strongly indicated here. To the very least, it is very feared. To the least, the situation is eating you up (the mice) as you feel on the watch (the fox) at the working place (House associated with the fox).

the mice : loss, anxiety, nervousness
the fox someone with an agenda, elements held in the background, lies, treat (and sometimes represents work, employee)
the house : working place

The Ring, the Cross and the Child

what will happen concretely : the contract won’t be renewed. This was my conclusion in regard to the other parts of that spread.

the ring : a contract, engagement
the cross : something sure, karmic, definitive, a cross to bear (but it is not always a bad card, as one might believe !)
the child : the renewal

the cut of the deck was the Bear and the Tower : it seemed to represent her boss who was the one taking the decision about the contract being renewed or not.

Hope you found the break down of the analysis helpful,
Jayce

Lenormand reading : a case analysis around oscar night

Browsing my archives, I found out a funny reading I did around the academy award. Don’t ask me why but I was pretty sure it was either Marion Cotillard or Julie Christie who was going to get it. And just like that, in front of the TV, I did a reading, silly me. I was oh so curious of what the cards would be telling me. Usually I don’t “play” with my deck, but couldn’t resist the fun. I thought it would be a good training.

Here are the cards I got for Marion Cotillard / (the Lady is the key card)

The Lily, the Star, the Dog, the Lady, the Snake, the Heart, the Ring

For Marion Cotillard : I think the cards to the left are related to the fact that she had been honored already (with Bafta) about her interpretation of Edith Piaf. So she was already highly appreciated and respected as an actress before the Oscar night. That is the combination of the cards Lily, Star and Dog : appreciation of both the audience and her peers. Cards on the right first made me hesitating quite a bit. The snake is usually a sign of trouble, something that is not going the right way … that kind of thing. But it also might represent a woman. And I think that here it represents Edith Piaf. She honestly completely transformed herself : she WAS Edith. Also, I think that it played a huge part as Americans know and cherish Edith Piaf. And for that, (the heart) she is highly appreciated and praised (the ring). And you know the rest of the story, she got that Oscar !

“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 cards : animals

This is a post about little pets and bigger ones too 🙂 Some Lenormands cards can actually be related to animals and give you informations about them.

The obvious ones : the Dog ! And the Fish ! The Snake as well, of course. But the Snake may also stands for any kind of reptiles, geckos, … that kind of exotic animals. (Exotism is also indicated especially whenever the Ship is around). The Birds cards : little birds, poultry, owls … The Storks is for bigger birds. The Mice, apart for little mice, can be for hamsters, rats, weasel, beaver …
Maybe less obvious, the Fox can stands for Cats. For bigger animals the Bear is perfect. But the horse will be represented by the Rider.
The Tower may represent the refugee, the vet clinic. The Garden could be the place where you “train” the dog, or the horse. Actually, recently I had it in a reading and it stood for the zoo !

Cheers,
Jayce

The Snake (7)

The Snake represents troubles. Things are not going straight to the point, sometimes they take turns. It is therefore connected to hypocrisy, lies and such but also to diplomacy (check surrouding cards). They may represent a difficult woman, someone who is intelligent but sometimes to a degree that you might qualify of manipulative. The snake (as connected to Adam and Eve in the Garden) represents knowledge. Surrounding cards will be important here as it might vary : is it someone who is lying to you and creating troubles of all kind, someone prone to lying and cheating ? Or does it represents someone with knowledge, who is smart and know how to talk in a seductive and efficient way ? In relationship, this may represent a rival.

Cheers
Jayce
