Reading : cards and astrology

Hi there, I have currently Uranus in transit making a trine to my natal conjunction Moon/Venus. Over the years, I have noticed that astrology transits are very effective. Astrology is something I have studied : noting down the aspects of transits at major turns in my life. There never was a major event that wasn’t reflecting in transits. A trine is an aspect of 120 degree, and it speaks here of an opportunity. As 2 planets will be affected by the transit, there will be some major changes coming in. As the planet transiting  is Uranus the transit will be a “surprise”.

uranussymbolcolorUranus is the planet of awakening, sudden shock and surprise. Some keywords : originality, inventors, computers, cutting edge technologies. It is the joker, the wild card of the universe.

An array of possibilities can be here triggered, the Lenormand cards are used here to seek out which out of all the possibilities is going to be given birth to.

I did a 5 cards reading to see what exactly this trine would bring into my life. Here are the cards :

the coffin 08the bear 15the heart 24the birds 12the crossroad 22

the coffin, the bear, the heart, the birds, the path

The relationship between the Coffin and Uranus is quite interesting to have here. This is actually a great example of the Coffin not necessarily being a “bad” card. It speaks of a major life’s alteration. Uranus is a new way of looking at things ! As the transit is a trine , it is going to be taking place smoothly into my life.

Uranus disrupt, change, and re-do whatever it touches. Some things are going to be changed forever. The Coffin is the end of a life cycle. Looking forward. This could really mean the end of being single. Especially since the Heart is there in 5 cards. This will break up the rigid past and challenges. Viable patterns for the present are able to step into my life. I have to admit I can’t wait to have some changes brought into my “routine” right now. I had some very tough times the last 10 years, and I am fed up with tragedies and losses. I want my life back.

Next card is the Bear. It may represents someone. Most of the time, the Bear is a man. Keywords : strong and powerful. Someone protective, caring, generous.

The Bear associated with the Heart : someone with a good heart, generous. A passion on the way ?

The Heart is for tenderness, generosity, love, romance. The conjunction of Moon and Venus are I guess represented here by this card. As the Heart is central in the draw, it seems to act as a focus.

The Birds : this is the card of verbal communication, chat, gossip. Also the cards for a couple. Directly following the Heart, it looks like being in a romance is coming around the corner.

The Crossroads speaks again of the choice, the opportunity. I see it here as meaning life getting into a new direction.

I always look at the cut : the Key associated with the Ship. Key is the Yes card. The Ship can stand for many things, here I suppose it is the longing for something. The Combination speaks about a dream to come true. The ship speaks also of travel, and being abroad. Maybe it speaks about a future move, indicated in the 5 cards by the Crossroads.

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 ! 🙂

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

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 !

Cheers

The Crossroads (22)

The crossroads represents a choice to be made. You are standing at a crossroads and you have to decide which one you will take in order to go further on your path. If you were stuck for a while, whether in relationship or at work, now you have opportunities. Several options are available. Multiplicity is the concept of the crossroads. This may though describe an individual who’s not ready to settle, someone who is saying one thing and then doing another. This represents the time to make up your mind.

Cheers,
Jayce
