NY September 11 and Ground Zero

While watching a documentary on tv news some days ago, I felt like doing a spread for the events and the renovation of Ground Zero in New York.

Here is the spread :

Lenormand cards for Ground Zero

The Sun associated to the Letter (the cut of the spread):  represents the upcoming “anniversary” of the event. And the amount of publications that are going to be written: 10 years already and like many people, I do remember that day just like yesterday. It is one of those moments that one remembers all his life. I was going back to my hotel; I was staying at the Reunion’s Island at that time, when I heard the news on the radio. I spent the evening watching the news with other clients of the hotel, including someone who used to be a journalist.  We would talk and stare at that TV, wondering what the world was turning into.  One of my friends who actually was a New York resident send me later a photograph that he took from the top of his building where he could watch the event taking place. He wrote me that he saw the tower collapse. Without a doubt, that day he woke up to live the worst nightmare of his life. I still have a little tourist book of NY in which I checked all the places I wanted to see in the city, including of course, the Twin Towers. Fact is, in September I had a last minute change and instead of going to NY, I had to go the Reunion’s island for work. Someone must have been watching over me.

Now back to the 13 cards layout:

What could possibly better represents ground zero than the Mountain? Everything is cement and block of concrete there and has to be rebuilt. At the crown of the layout we have the Garden. So we go literally from a block of concrete made by nature, to complete scenery made by man.

Architecture by the way is well represented within the layout as the combo of Pisces and Garden. Bear is standing next to it, and represents the amount of money which is tremendous. Bear, by itself represents money. Pisces placed like this, close the Bear, augments the amount of money. And the lady, (one must consider here the ace of spades on the card), illustrates the contract to rebuild the place.

The Dog, the Bear, and the Book: in a layout, 3 ten represents an important change. The 2 Kings stand for a new enterprise and the house on the right is the big buildings.

The garden is considered by many as being a very good card, when you don’t take note of the cartomancy aspect of the card: the 8 of spades. Some readers only care about the picture and ignore the traditional meaning of the card. In this particular layout, one has to take care of the traditional meaning. The Garden is actually the 8 of spades as you can see in the picture of the spread, and it is at the top, crowing the whole set atop the snake.

The 8 of spades has a very bad reputation and despite the fact that the Garden might also represent a public place, here it should be taken into account especially if the Snake is present, and it is: just below the Garden as a matter of fact. Traditionally, the Garden and the Snake associated with one another when studying if a place is spiritually clean is a warning sign of entities present. Not that I am so surprised in this case considering the amount of pain that must be floating over there.

Mice in itself is a bad card, which I always see in case of stress, suicide, death, health problems, every kind of “deterioration” you can think about … Along with the Garden and the Snake, it is enclosing the layout, sort of making a parameter around it !

The Storks is a good card to notice there in the layout standing over the Scythe : the change taking place is positive and should, with time, take away the negativity over there : the Scythe “cutting” the Mice. It is like a cleansing process, and it will be taking place bit by bit like the Clover is indicating, being at the center of the layout.

Hope this analysis was interesting to you. And my deepest thoughts to all people affected by this event.

Lenormand cards combination

the Ship and the Moon recently appeared next to one another in a reading representing the husband of the querent. Usually this combination of cards could make one think about being intuitive and dreamy … Here, in her case, it was referring to the problem she was having with her husband. He is suffering from Alzheimer disease and here it had to be read as : he is moving into the “night”

Oscars feedback

Okay, next time I’ll just do another spread with Lenormand cards 😉
Even though, now when I look at it (of course!) I see that it had to be Colin Firth …
Ah well … lesson learned !
And I don’t practice with the pendulum for long enough to count on that anyway … if I needed a proof of that, I have it !
Good for experimenting but that’s it about it for now. (Bummer ………………)

Colin Firth had those cards
gentlemen + letter + ring + birds

on the left, of the gentlemen : lily + cross (which didn’t look all that good and made me hesitate quite a bit)

but on the right side !!! Come on !!!
Seems obvious right ? It is what I call an answer by the book !

letter : the envelope
the ring : the Oscar
the birds : the committee , the academy
Clear as crystal water, but I don’t know … I wasn’t 100% sure !
Probably because, I was afraid to let my own opinion go in the way.
Before doing the spread, I was like : okay Colin is going to have it anyway ..
This said, James Franco had good cards as well …. This will be subject of another post, as I will do the breakdown of the cards.

Still, I was happy with the result : Natalie Portman had it and “Toy Story 3” as well.
I didn’t post the cards I had for the animated film category, but just to let you know, I used the moon card as a keycard. At least, that was right 😉

Memo to self : look better at what you have right in front of your nose, and leave the pendulum for now !

Pendulum and the Oscars

Tried something new with my pendulum …. I just asked who would get the Oscar for best actor …

a definite NO for all of them except : James Franco (127 hours)

I honestly wonder who is going to get it : with Lenormand cards, I would have to do a second spread  just for Colin Firth and James Franco : they both had good cards for that question. So it wasn’t very easing determining who would get it with the first spread. The pendulum was swinging back and forth left to right for all of them (that’s how it says “no”) but for James Franco it would make tiny circles … Therefore, answering “yes” … we’ll see then : I am of course very curious at this point !

Have you tried to do spreads for the Oscars ?

Answers a few hours away …

Lenormand cards and the Oscar night

83 academy award on the way !

Since I can remember, I always loved the oscars. We are one day away from the Oscars night.

On the eve of the biggest night in Hollywood, I did a spread for each nominee for the Best Actress category.

According to me : Natalie Portman is going to get it !

Shuffling the cards, I “charged” the woman card with the name of Natalie Portman, here below are the cards I got for her :

clover + woman + bouquet + cross + house + horseman + clouds

The most important card being clover and bouquet on the left and right of the woman card. these two cards may indicate that she is the favorite.  And even though the cross is not so far from the woman card, right next to her is the bouquet, so it looks very positive here.

… tree + ring + anchor (the ring here represents the “gift”, thus the oscar) the anchor symbolizing here something solid, stability, established …

… key + letter + bear (and the card letter might represent the envelope)
The key represents an important information, a “key fact” and the bear represents money among other things but also possession so, all in all after looking at the spread in general, I think she will definitely get the Oscar this year.

If I am right, I will maybe do another post doing the full breakdown of the spread, and post the other cards I got for all the other nominees in this category.

Lenormand cards : a possibly criminal case

A woman disappeared in France, early in the morning , doing her jogging, she actually never came back home. She is actively being searched for.

I used lenormand cards in order to do the reading. The women card is “charged” with her name.

cut :

Sun + Cross (which seems to describe the painful situation taking place right now)

clover + whip + heart + women + lily + cross + birds + man + storks + mice + mountain + bear

the situation doesn’t look good to me. lily + cross, especially regarding to this question may mean a long agony, suffering …

birds mean proximity. so the man (if it proves to be a criminal case), is probably someone from next town, nearby …

storks and mice : a stressful move. did he hurt her by accident, and then fled the scene ?

mountain here doesn’t look good : it is an obstacle and a big one (bear).

all in all it doesn’t look that good. no really good cards implying that she is safe and sound unfortunately.

for more details I pulled 3 cards again

key + scythe + garden

which seems to imply that she has been hurt in a public place … that was the turning point.

for more details again, asking the question “is she dead” ?

tree + fox + coffin

I would say alas yes, and the fox seems to look at the tree … maybe they will find her thanks to trained dogs (canine brigade), but in my humble opinion it is too late …

Lenormand cards : Belgium’s government

Hi there,

following a discussion with Jase, I used the Tower card as a keycard regarding a question about Belgium’s government. There are quite a few problems right now in the country, and we are about to break the record held by Irak of a country with no government, by the 17th of this month.

People have been manifesting on the streets … as this thing seems to last for about wayyyyyyyyyyy too long now.

so, that was for the context if you didn’t know about the whole thing 😉

Question : are we going to have a government any time soon in Belgium ?

I always look at the cut before I fan the cards on the table and pick the cards ….

cut : cross + anchor (oh well …. well anchored pain !)


Fish + Tower + Anchor + Lily + Bear + Dog + Coffin + Scythe + Lady + Book + Sun


the tower and the anchor means : world landmark

anchor is also a long time frame, so it seems that Belgium next big record is underway, no government by the 17th … (nothing to be proud of !)

Especially with the lily next to it, delays, delays, delays …. the lily is also winter, so all we can hope now is the next season, I suppose, to find a solution ….right now, it is a total blockage.

The bear is the sign of all those financial deals that are on the table now and discussed, and a big part of the problem, no solution seems to be reached ….

The bear/dog : financial analyst ….

The bear and the dog on a side note makes me think of Bart de Wever and his “opponent” in politics … Bart is much of a bear physically … Bear may suggest someone very stubborn, who won’t let go, and that is very much him. He is certainly a heavy player in that scene.

(the lily could be the king of Belgium, by the way as it represents an older man).

If we look at a period of time, the bear stands for end of April to end of May (taurus sign).

The coffin : could be the sign of the end of the problem

and what next : the scythe …

This is my worry : they speak of making some part of the land “individual”, independant … so the split, the schism could be inevitable

I pulled a couple of cards afterwards to see where the scythe was going  : the sun is there, but it is so faraway ….

If a solution is underway, it certainly won’t be by the end of the week …
