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 …

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 !

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 …

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 …

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.

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

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

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 case study : a reading about a travel

Hi there,

this is yet another case study using the 2 paths spread. Some years ago, the querent made a trip overseas, and she is actually wondering if it would be wise for her to go next summer over there again. As this is a long travel, I picked the ship as the theme card. The theme card is always taken out of the deck and placed on the table before picking up the other cards.

Question asked : is it wise for her to travel overseas next summer ?

first line stands for “if the querent is going”, the second line is “if the querent is not going”.

Here is the first line :

the Clouds, the Whip, the Star, the Mice, the Storks

This doesn’t look too good. The Clouds speaks about confusion and the Whip indicates troubles and arguments about this ideal (the Star). The Mice and the Storks are there to show that there would be losses, stressful changes along the way. The fact that the Storks are ending the line are though positive, changes can still be coming but the “flight” of the Storks will only take place if the underlying issues shown by the previous cards are resolved. Better wait before crossing the ocean !

The second line on the contrary is incredibly positive ! The Man and the Letter, followed by the Clover speaks about a positive and uplifting message from a man. The querent is single so there might be something very interesting here … The Woman and the Bouquet is the querent and it shows her as being content and very happy. The Letter and the Bouquet can both be a sign of a proposition and/or invitation. Chances are that by next summer, there will be a change of plans and something very positive will take place. Something that will make her a lot happier than that trip overseas.

Feedback to come !

hope you enjoyed this case study around the Lenormand cards,
Cheers

The Letter (27)

The Letter stands for documents such as a letter, an information, a notice, an email … You are getting news about some topic. Communication. The written form. A contact with someone also. Documents. Surrounding cards will say whether this is good or bad news. In itself, the letter is a neutral card : you cannot really say whether the news is going to make you happy or sad. Financially speaking, you may receive an invoice, some news related to your budget anyway.

Cheers
Jayce
