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.

le-ritz

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

pizza-pino-on-the-champs-el

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

Daily reading N°2 about Paris, France

HI there,

this is the second daily drawing about my little trip to Paris. Prior to the drawing, I already knew where I was going. So the house here should not be read as my home place, or the hotel room … because I definitely didn’t stay in !

the house 04the heart 24the anchor 35the whip 11the child 13

the house, the heart, the anchor, the whip, the child.

Again, I propose this as a little exercise to be edited later on with the answer.
What about that second day in Paris ? What do you think ?

Cheers,
Jayce

*edited to add*

This is where I went in the morning : the Moulin Rouge … Quite mythical right ? just next to my hotel, it was a small walk.

le-moulin-rouge

The Moulin Rouge really well in the cards through the house+heart+anchor

see how the anchor evokes the 4 sides of the windmill ?
also the House and the Heart could evoke the Sacre Coeur, but … I guess the cross would have been there … the Whip is more like showing the “stimulating” aspect of this place of the city : the Moulin Rouge, Folies Pigalle, and the Erotic museum …

folies-pigalles

musee-de-l-erotisme

sacre-coeur

This is the Sacre Coeur : I went in and it is quite breathtaking. Pictures are not allowed inside though (which I understand). I bought some stuff such as a statue of the Virgin Mary for my father who is ill and so, she will protect him. At the top of the stair, you have one of the most beautiful sight !

manege-sacre-coeur

this is the Manege just in front of the Sacre Coeur before you take the steps up.

mime-sacre-coeur

and a mime just as you are about to take the steps heading to the Sacre Coeur. I took so many pictures of the place !

peintre-butte-montmartre

This is Montmartre with la Butte Montmartre as it is called, with painters …

I have had the typical lunch there chez Eugene : a Fish Soup ! Of course, it is filled with tourist, but still I loved it ! There are so many things to see there … I loved the atmosphere of it …

voila, see you for the next reading still about my little city trip to Paris

5 cards spread about a health problem

I finally decided to see a doctor for my neck and back problems. I just hope the treatment won’t make me feel good for 3 days and then back to starting painful point again. What I want is the problem to be fixed for once and for all. I got my appointment tomorrow and decided to pick 5 cards to see how this would go.

Here are the 5 cards I got :

Mountain 21the ring 25the tower 19the moon 32the anchor 35

the Mountain, the Ring, the Tower, the Moon, the Anchor

the Mountain shows the blockage : at one point I couldn’t move at all. I don’t think there is another card in the deck that could be more appropriate to reflect the situation. I always see it as a good sign whenever there is a card pulled that is telling me I am being focused while doing the reading.

the Ring : that is the chronic aspect of the problem. It happens every now and then. Some muscles in my back or disks in my neck are going haywire every now and then. Ring whenever related to health may means “chronic”.

the Tower could be an hospital. But here it is a medical facility : his own office, I suppose. Also to me, the structure of the tower evokes the vertebrae, my neck, my back …. Structure anyway. And when I am blocked I feel as stiff as that Tower. The neck brace around my neck is sure making me look like some sort of stiff tower 😀 On a sidenote, of course, I have to answer about 50 times a day question like does it hurt ? how did it happen ? and so on … I yet manage to get a lot of fun out of it. Each and every time I am making up stories. The one that works the best is “I did parachute jumping this week end” (pause)… “and guess what … the ‘chute DIDN T open !” (looks of distress and shrieks of my audience) … me : “well, I am ok you know, I mean … the instructor who was jumping with me is way worse than me, …. I landed on him !” … (pause).. me “but you know what, I got everything on camera, wanna see the film ?” People are actually buying this stuff, I am apparently very good at this. SIGH I totally missed my call … I should have gone into acting and I would at least make money out of making myself look like a total goofball. Awesome.

The Moon : my appointment is taking place rather late in the day. Also, here the Moon shows the instability and my worries about the problem. And finally whenever I am under pressure, the problem increases.

The Anchor : could represent the return to stability. (the use of an instrument ?). But as it is the card representing work also, this could be my final decision to seek for professional help. I can’t let the situation as it is … I thought that the problem was over, but every now and then my neck hurts so bad, I have to go and seek some advice.

I think that the cut was very well representing the (hoped) outcome of the appointment, by the way

the storks 17the child 13

the Storks and the Child : the return to flexibility. Well, I truly hope so. I am going tomorrow, so hopefully I will post the feedback very soon 😀

Cheers

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 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 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 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
