Daily draw : a city trip to Brussels, Belgium

Hi there,

tomorrow I am going to Brussels. From what I have seen on this website, there are many things to see and to do. I am trying as much as I can to break my dull routine of working like a machine non stop and then going home and reading or watching tv. There is more to life than just that, right ? Here are the cards I pulled for this day.

the heart 24the tower 19the key 33the bear 15the birds 12

the heart, the tower, the key, the bear, the birds

here is what I am getting from this draw : I am going to love (the heart) my trip to Brussels (the tower being a big city, a capital); this is certain (the key). I will spend some money there and/or eat something (the bear). Also I might enjoy a conversation, the liveliness of the place (the birds). I am wondering now if the heart means meeting someone there, someone tall (the tower) and with a beard (the bear) ? Someone who is going to be a key event for the day (the key) and enjoy a conversation with him (the birds) ? It looks like I am going to spend a very nice Sunday over there … Christmas shopping looks like fun with those cards … I will put the feedback as an update and add pictures of the places visited as well !

Cheers
Jayce

*edited*

It has been fun ! Made a lot of pictures that I will post later on. I ate a lot of little things here and there as I was discovering the little stands/shops put up for Christmas. (the bear). I also bought a few things as Christmas presents. There was a concert on the Great Market Place that was quite trippy ! Lightning effects, change of colors on tubes place vertically on the ground. The colors were making patterns, changing through the flow of the music. And it was really something to watch/listen in the nighttime. I walked a lot and I am rather tired now. I didn’t meet anyone, it was a rather lonely day even though it was fun. apparently the Tower here just meant the capital, or the fact that I was lonesome. The Heart : the fact I enjoyed the day. The Key is here I think meant to be read with the two following cards. The Bear all the treats along the way : candies, roasted nuts, warm red wine … and finally the Birds : the concert on the Great Market Place. I will post the pictures I have made later on, I am too tired to open the editing program to save the pictures on a lighter format for download right now …

Cheers,
Jayce

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

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.

Cheers

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 !

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

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 Heart (24)

The heart is of course related to love matters. That is of course pretty obvious. Individuals described by the heart are loving, caring, you just love to be around them. It is though not necessarily related to a marriage, an engagement : that is the matter told by the ring (25). As for romance, anyone can guess this is a good sign :still, look at the surrounding cards! If it is related to work you are involved with something that you love and makes you feel fulfilled. Lucky you ! The heart also stands for generosity, compassion and humanitarian endeavors.

Cheers,
Jayce
