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”

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,

The Moon (32)

The Moon represents the ying type of energy. The Sun being Yang energy of course. The moon stands for intuition, hopes, desire and longing for something. The nighttime. An ideal that you wish to come true. It is the psyche. Feelings. Sensibility. Dreams. Sweet romance. Take note of the surrounding cards, the moon is easily “under influence”, and with negative cards around, it is the sign of delusion or nervous breakdown. ( Just as in Tarot, the Moon is a tricky card.)

Cards about love

the loversace of cupsAce of Wands

Love is of course one of the main reasons people ask for a reading. Not that I am complaining. I just shuffled my deck today, and flipped the cards one by one.
As I looked at each card, I jotted down these thoughts trying to connect them with events related to love. Well, of course, all cards could be related to this topic in some way or another, but some seems to be more obvious than others. I’ll start only with the upright cards. I’ll keep the reversed for another post.

The lovers card comes to mind of course, but contrary to popular belief this may remain platonic. It may speak about the affection 2 individuals have for one another. So it may sometimes indicates a soul mate but this could be the friend you’ll keep for a lifetime. Or maybe just an indication that you are at present in your life, listening to your physical and spiritual needs when making a choice.

The Ace of Cups is showing a time when you discover about love, about expressing it and receiving it. My stepsister that I love dearly, and who’s lucky in love and doesn’t know anything about tarot; just once looked at the whole deck. I actually was wondering what would be her reaction to the cards as she has no notion of the card’s meaning, she just looked at the Ace of Cups and said “This looks beautiful. Very catholic in a way, but I love the details of it”. By the way, it was the medieval Scapini tarot deck. So the Ace of Cups is about a new relationship, or taking the existing relationship to the next level.

The Ace of Wands is a very phallic looking card. It may means fertility, but one thing for sure when you get this as an answer for a relationship reading, the spark between the 2 individuals is there and this could lead to a passionate fling, if not a relationship. It says physical action. Think “Start me up” by the Rolling Stones when you see this card.

2 of cups3 of cups The 2 of Cups is the sharing between 2 individuals. The sharing is beneficial for both and both are working on the relationship. The 4 of wands and/or the 6 of wands is for the commitment. The 10 of cups is also a good indicator.

The 3 of Cups may simply denote friendship, a party. But it may point a marriage/commitment : the celebration party. Look if the Empress is around, she is the mother card, the home stability. (and if there is one of the Pages : it may indicate a women’s pregnancy). Look for the 9 of pentacles as well. When it comes to being committed, the 8 of pentacles shows the will to work on the relationship, doing what’s right to make it work. The 6 of wands is the coming home with success. The 4 of wands alone may mean redecorating a house, but with the other 2 cards : moving in with someone, making room for a relationship … the 10 of cups which shows a loving family could indicate a true bliss.

8 of wandsThe 8 of wands on the other end speaks about something happening quickly. It doesn’t promise to stay. It may also represent someone who’s making a move on you. But it could move out as soon as it moves in. “Carpe diem”. Enjoy, but don’t look yet for commitment, first things first. Think “I need U tonight” by INXS.

5 of cups

The 5 of Cups shows sadness. it is the mourning card. along with the 9 of swords it may point to serious issue like depression, endless nights without sleep, crying for the lost love. Look if there is the Tower and the Death card as well, it could lead to something very serious like a nervous breakdown, something very hard to go through.

8 of cupsThe 8 of cups is someone leaving the relationship if there is one. Which can be a good thing if it is an abusive relationship. and if there is none, it might be someone who’s leaving pain, sadness, grief behind in order to seek something more fulfilling. If the relationship was a bad one, then it is a good sign, you leave the pain behind, you keep on going on your journey, looking out for a better place for you in the world.

The 3 of swords is yet another card that shows the pain one has when a meaningful relationship is coming to an end. I see the 7 of cups as illusion in love, not knowing what you need or want in a relationship, especially associated with the Moon for example.

The 4 of cups is a card you may get when being bored in a relationship. maybe it is a sign that love has turned into a dull routine. If the 7 of pentacles is around, you might be reconsidering options. Should I stay or should I go ? You are in need of “Alive and Kicking” (Simple Minds).

5 of pentaclesthe hermit

The 5 of pentacles is being poor in the matter of the heart ( if the question is about love of course) this card is about financial matters, but in regards to feeling : it shows being left out, not having a home to come to. The Hermit is a solitary individual, who could though long for a soul mate, but also someone who’s dedicated to something else in life, and has no wish to fall in love.

10 of wandstowerpage of cups10 of cupsthe empress

The 10 of wands : someone is carrying all the burden of the relationship on his shoulder. It may show an abusive relationship, or someone who’s always victimizing himself. Or maybe just overloaded with work, and is not looking for any other trouble at the moment.

The Tower is actually tricky and should be analysed with the cards around it. Could be a love at first sight thing, but also the brutal ending of a love affair that really alter your view on relationships.

The page of cups is a messenger of love, the very beginning of a love affair, the early states.

10 of cups shows a happy family. the empress is the card of fertility, the mother card.
These 2 together with the ace of wands could indicate the addition of a little one to the family.

temperancethe hanged manthe starthe devil

Temperance may show a time when you are feeling good with yourself. If you have suffered a break up in the past, you are now sort of having a balanced approach. You may not be ready to have a relationship yet, but you are experiencing peace of mind.

The Hanged Man may show a humanitarian. Someone expecting stuff to happen also, not the kind to make a move, but the kind who’s waiting for the other one to make the move. I have seen it in reading representing someone that was “once bitten twice shy”, yet compassion is there as well. The Star card is indicating a renewal in faith and hope for life as well.

The devil is a card indicating passion in some reading. But you have to look for the cards around it, because this can indicate a passion that is blind. And maybe destructive. Surely not the quiet type.

Any court card appearing in the reading may indicate the type of person around you, the kind of person the universe is sending to you.

well, that’s it for now. Hope this is helpful. I feel I deserve my coffee now. Jayce.
