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

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
Jayce

The Sun (31)

The Sun is of course a good card to get in a reading. It speaks of positive outcome. Celebration time. Being successful and enjoying the rewards. Being honored. Optimism. Warm hearted. Being incredibly lucky and/or victorious. Sunny weather, sunny location, summer time, holidays. Creativity. Energy. If you question yourself about the outcome of an undertaking, this is the card of success and positive result. Enjoy 🙂

Cheers,
Jayce
