When you ask the same question with both Tarot and Lenormand...
It often happens this way, and it is a perpetual wonder. Among the many visual and symbolic similitudes, notice the egg (which can also be seen as a "keyhole" of completion and opening), the numerical dance of 21, 22 and 2 and of course the crossing/crossroad - present in both 2 of Pentacles and the Crossroads. I love cards!
"What will the outcome be after the interview with A in London?"
7 OF DIAMONDS Rx: "One of your ventures is threatened by failure"
QUEEN OF SPADES Rx: "The ill-starred influence is significantly weakened"
9 OF CLUBS: "Success in marriage or winning a lottery'
At first it looks as if your goals in relation to this interview are unlikely to be reached, and after the interview you might feel as if things didn't go as you expected. However, the cards foretell a turn of events that will bring you success. Maybe the confusing influence at the beginning is related to delays, a change of plans, but whatever the outcome you will feel appreciated, wanted and successful in an unexpected way. A woman might help. She is usually older, with dark/or grey hair, mature, serious, intelligent, sharp, reserved and the manager type. She is a mediator, so she could be a lawyer or a counselor.
"How will my social life go when I'm in Jkt (a city)?"
10 OF DIAMONDS Rx: " A difficult, long journey, with setbacks and delays. Near a Spade: the journey will take longer than planned."
9 OF SPADES: " A sense of suffering and loss."
KING OF HEARTS: "A man in his prime of life, a sincere friend. If the Questioner is a woman, a love affair is in the offing."
It seems to me that the start of the journey will be difficult, the process of moving and integrating will be challenging, stressful and maybe fraught with delays and turns of events. You will be very busy in the beginning, for the first few months, too busy to enjoy the city and its people, but in a way, this is a normal evolution, for your focus will be on adjusting your daily rhythms to the new city, settle down, make arrangements, redecorations, planning your work and making new schedules etc.
The middle card, the "heart of the spread" shows a mother traveling with her children. You might feel as if you need to take care of everything by yourself, for a little while, in the beginning, but then the opposite will happen once you feel more settled and past the hectic time of the move: you will feel taken care of, even "mothered", and it looks like a woman will be one of your first friends, she can even be an actual mother, she will become a close friend and also introduce you to a new group of people. The cards are very populated and they show that with time you will enjoy a rich social life, which is in fact focused on meeting "parental-like friends", helpful and sincere, warm, kind and joyful, and the main protagonist is this man, the King of Hearts, the archetype of the husband, especially near the mother-children card. I think this is where you meet your future marital partner. This King usually stands for a type of man you enjoy, both physically and psychologically, caring, optimistic, kind, vivacious, and most importantly, loving you.
KING OF CLUBS Rx: "Setbacks, danger of loosing"
8 OF SPADES Rx: "An unforeseen occurrence. Near the King of Hearts the overall situation should take a turn for the better."
KING OF HEARTS: "A man in his prime of life, a sincere friend. Support and success."
9 OF HEARTS Rx: "Minor obstacles or transient worries"
I am tempted to say a no here, but this will not upset you, eventually, the reason being that you will actually take on a new opportunity.
GK'S PROJECT/CODE NAME: SA
1. What are the chances for this wish to come true?
SCYTHE SHIP CROSSROAD
At first glance, based on the main spread, it looks like a 50/50 chance. But the clarifier Rider makes us believe this wish will eventually come true. The wish is connected to a "sudden turn" which could be one of events, a decision, or both. Perhaps the wish implies a radical turn in your life, the result of it, or causing one, and there is a lot of movement and dynamism in the spread. Project SA may involve travel, transportation, alternative means, and even a 4 wheel vehicle.
2. Magical (inner) power to use
There is so much magic in the CROSSROADS card! First we see the magic of having the courage to take a solitary path, to venture into the unknown, by following an inner vision or plan (the book in the hands of the traveler) and also the magical spirit guides (the Blue Bird, a powerful symbol of intuition, spirituality and faith); the magical power of shapeshifting and adapting along the way (the magical water horse); innovation and constant change; openness (the open fields, the many roads) and the ability and courage to trace a new path.
3. How my wish can come true (what I should do, keeping the magical power as primary energy)
MICE TREE FOX
Work, work, work. If we consider the Tree as Virgo energy, we have 3 work cards in a row. It is interesting to see the two resourceful animals, the mice and the fox, considered opportunistic aka able to adapt to any environment, survivalists, omnivores: a metaphor for the ingenuity to create and administrate resources. But you will not be alone all the time, or you shouldn't for in the middle, as heart of the spread, we have the Tree of connections, helpers, we see here a team (Mice, Tree) led by the Fox, as a guide: you will be clever, fast, one step ahead as the Fox.
4. If it happens, what are circumstances of my wish coming true? ( clues about the moment/circumstances when the wish comes true)
HEART MOUNTAIN BIRDS
It looks like this wish will begin to have a shape one year from now; it is very dear to your heart, perhaps for a long time, although recently it must have resurfaced with a new face to it. The circumstances are related to an important partnership making you feel as if able to move mountains, and tangible resources (money) are also involved; at first, it seems the wish is being blocked by a hurdle in this partnership, but what seemed to be misfortune proves to be a blessing in disguise. It will be two winters after you start project SA when you will feel your wish is coming true and the realization will fill you with a sense of personal power that goes beyond the tangible value of the project, because it will be the success of believing against all odds and the feeling you really got to use the magical power(s) described in the power card Crossroads.
5. If it happens, when will it be? (timing estimate)
Apart from the Birds card in the previous spread and the other timing clues, I also got the HOUSE card which tells me project SA will probably take 4 years to be completed, since its inception.
6. What will the wish bring into my life? (consequences of it coming true)
BOOK SUN WOMAN
Beautiful! Recognition, personal power, success, but most of all, knowledge, of a new kind, and a new life plan, with both Book and Sun being such powerful symbols of revelation and knowledge. You will be a revelation and you will experience one. May your wish come true!
MissBlyss Weekly Forecast 19-26.04.2016, with Rider-Waite Tarot
KING OF PENTACLES KNIGHT OF PENTACLES 9 OF WANDS 3 OF WANDS KNIGHT OF SWORDS QUEEN OF WANDS
In love, the general theme of the week is…waiting. And getting ready. There is this strong, pervasive feeling that you are waiting for someone, for this King-Knight, or this King to turn into a Knight again, to abandon his throne where he is dozing in grapes perfume and bring the pentacle back to you, where it belongs. My feeling is that this King is from the past, but maybe he is just a mind/heart image you carry inside, this voluptuous, a little lazy King suddenly leaving a state in which he has the luxury to sit and think or dream and becoming young again, and put back on in his armor, and turn into a suitor ready to battle new battles for you. You are wounded in love, but not giving up, and this makes you stronger and more beautiful now and in fact you seem to be preparing for a battle, and you are ready for it. The first half of the week seems to be about waiting, and then for the second part, the rhythm changes, pentacles turn into wands and you will have the occasion to show yourself as the Queen of Wands that you are, charismatic, attractive, dazzling, to whoever Knight or King dares to visit you. The only problem I see here is that this King disguised as a Knight is going to make a proposal that looks more like the past than the future, while you are ready for a new path, despite being determined to keep what is gold, from the past, you still want it to be new uncharted territory, a new map, you want to be wooed in a different way. But the wands are very promising, in the end, and despite the friction here, and the fact that the results might not come this week, the rhythm changes and you will feel the fire and there is speed and movement by the end of the interval, and lots of passion filling the air.
5 OF WANDS 10 OF WANDS 7 OF CUPS 5 OF SWORDS DEVIL
This looks like a very busy week, during which you will be tempted to perhaps carry and fulfill more tasks than you can handle, not that you can’t, but you will feel a little tired in the end. The heart of the spread are dreams and plans and I wonder if you didn’t make a list, a schedule for this week, but as we have the Devil here sticking his tail, and he is a meddling one isn’t he? there will be some changes of plans for now, but don’t worry about it, you will be able to get back to your initial plans, or what you dream to do, when May begins. Don’t get discouraged by the delays or setbacks you may encounter this week, it is happening because there are conflicting forces bringing lots of demands on you now, but it is like a training that will eventually make you stronger, another side of the Devil.
There could be some minor work conflicts, or a sense of over-activity, cleaning other people’s mess, or simply too many people asking too many things at once, and sometimes in contradiction. But the good thing is that you will multitask, and it will be like a multi-tasking training week. I wonder if there is also some physical activity, intense one, taking place at your job this week. A minor work conflict, related to finances is also possible.
If you are going to school, you will have lots of homework.
Be careful with sharp objects and sharp tongues.
Make sure to exercise and drink lots of water. Working with fluids will be very beneficial to you this week. There is some alchemical work going on at your job, chemistry and alchemy, with the water in the cups and the fire of the pit.
With 5 of Wands and the Devil you are struggling now to become independent, and to feel free at what you do, and you are on the right path.
By the end of the week, there is a sense of prevailing, of winning something, like a competition, dispute or exam.
Other highlights this week
6 OF WANDS 3 OF CUPS QUEEN OF WANDS
Oh so nice! The celebration of a victory!
Going to a party is also in the cards, and if a party a spirit of joy and feeling like a winner will be your banner there.
Inspired by Fieran's Lenoscope, MIRROR OF FATE is an eclectic and insightful Lenormand or Tarot spread combining cards with astrology, namely the card correspondent of astrological placements. (each Tarot and Lenormand card is attached to an astrological symbolism).
MIRROR OF FATE is fixed for each person and it depends on your birth data. It's a Tarot or Lenormand profile reflecting a particular astrological chart.
The spread describes two levels, with the same string of cards, a marvelous particularity of Lenormand to be able to tell several parallel stories with just a few symbols:
1. personality level (which is the real vehicle of our fate)
2. destiny level, the life path in several areas and combined
For these two dimensions of the reading, we use as reading instruments the 5 personal planets and the North Node (life path) as they are written in the chart, to which I added the Ascendant, as personal contribution to the spread.
For each planetary position, we consider 3 elements in order to build the spread:
This way, a spread of 3 cards is built for each level of the reading.
For example, for the Sun which describes your personality, we look at its sign and we find out the first card, and this card shows how you best express your personality (the sign of your Sun); then we add a second card which represents the ruler of the decan where your Sun lies, and this card is a clarifier for the first, it gives an additional personalized layer to your Sun position; finally the third card corresponds to the astrological house of the Sun and it shows the life area where you are most likely to shine, to show your personality. (see example below).
Together, these 3 cards describe not only your personality (dimension 1) but also your destiny on that specific level: destiny in love, career, general karma etc. (dimension 2) as it is shown by the spread.
Having 3 cards for each personal planet and the North Node, plus 2 cards for the Ascendant, this becomes a comprehensive 20 cards spread.
What exactly it describes?
1. ASC (2 cards) - your physical appearance; how you are perceived as general presence; the major motor behind your fate, your guiding star
2. Sun (3 cards) - your basic personality; life events related to it; potential for success and where and how it manifests; general fate
3. Moon (3 cards) - your emotional nature and needs; how you express them; events with strong emotional impact
4. Mercury (3 cards) - communication and mental processes; intellectual activity, job and interests; the life sector where you best express your mind and skills; the important message of your current incarnation
5. Venus (3 cards) - love nature; likes/dislikes; how you express yourself in love; love events and your love-related fate in this incarnation, namely how your love life will be
6. Mars (3 cards) - your actional profile; drive, motivation, force, action; sexuality; how you best express yourself on these levels; important events on Mars level
7. NN (3 cards) - your Karma in this life, events, lessons and best achievements, what is essentially destined for you to live
Let's take a look at E's Mirror of Fate with Lenormand: she is a Cancer Sun and ASC.
ASC IN CANCER, 2nd DECAN
In terms of physical appearance, we can see here that E is probably of medium height, with a special, enigmatic, perhaps darker face, strongly lunar, in shape but also as energy. The eyes are big, watery, mysterious. She may have well-defined eyebrows, slightly thicker, replicating the shape of the moon and almond-shaped eyes. These eyes sometimes look like puppy (watch the dog) or sheep eyes, soft, tender, loving, adorable, disarming. Brown, hazel or maybe blue eyes if we look at the bluish Moon, but still the brown is more prominent in the combination. Since Fox is usually associated with fur, hair, she must have beautiful, rich hair. She moves fast, as the Fox, but at the same time the two cards seen together point to feline, smooth, undetected presence, the kind of person who can startle you, behind your back, moving in silence, like a cat. We have here a Fox surviving in the harsh winter, a symbol for austerity, which makes us think she is probably thin and even wiry in body.
She is perceived by her entourage as silent, enigmatic, mysterious, alluring, fascinating, secretive, but at the same time adaptable, flexible, intelligent, caring. The sharpness of the Fox, the innocent, child-like, ready to please energy of the Sheep.
Since the Fox is the mind, our mental processes, and the Moon is our emotional, intimate life, but also mysteries, the unconscious on one hand, and the mystery of worldly success on another, the Moon-Fox pair has various meanings derived of such a combo: one of the main meanings is the ability to seduce and be seduced with the works of the mind, which creates the potential for illusions, but also imagination and the ability to tell stories, to fascinate, to have an aura of drama and mystery. In other words, the ability to create illusions and a magical world. A Moon-Fox person is a magician, an illusionist. This is also a classical combination for psychic gifts, especially empathy. As you can see from the Fox card, it depicts a major esoteric and archetypal symbol: the mirror of the soul; the Fox and its reflection. In combination with the Moon, it creates the ability to read into souls, but also a tendency to replicate the energy of the environment, which makes us think E is a bit of an emotional shapeshifter, and also absorbs the energy of the environment quite easily, for good or bad.
As a short conclusion, we may say that she is seen as blending in, if she wants to, but keeping an aura of seclusion, mystery and existential solitude about her, which most likely is perceived by others as either power, or weakness, but always fascination, at the same time.
This is a very spiritual combination and in the end it shows the main drive and source for E’s life force and life path is the search of spirituality, the desire to create a spiritual connection with the environment, and also the pursuit of stories and enigmas in need of solving.
She is a natural detective and spy.
SUN IN CANCER, 3rd DECAN, 1st HOUSE
MOON CLOUDS BEAR
The spread for the Sun doesn’t look very sunny, does it? Don’t get fooled, for the Bear is a strong solar card and it is considered the equivalent of the Strength card in Tarot, a Leo Card.
As personality, E is very emotional and at the same time a deep thinker. With the Moon and Neptune together, the Moon and the Clouds, we can see that her moods are very changeable and she may even suffer from a slight form of emotional ups and downs (slightly bi-polar) and sometimes she can be so sensitive to the environment, that her moods are like the weather and can even change with it. These ups and downs will be felt mostly during the first half of her life, because the ultimate destiny of how her personality is meant to be expressed, as we can see from the house position (the 1st house), Bear, mirroring Moon, is to overcome all the shadows of the passing Clouds and become a matriarch: emotional strength. But also motherhood, which seems to be a very important theme of her life. With the Clouds in the middle splitting the mother combination, it is possible during her childhood E experienced some difficult emotions and events in relation to her mother, that have shaped her a lot, and part of her task is to bring clarity on the sky of these accumulated emotions, to heal her anger and resentment (Bear) and to become a nurturer herself. Both the Moon and Bear cards have strong nurturing themes, and they show us E is indeed a nurturer of others, protecting and caring, a mama bear for her dear ones.
With Clouds in the middle, this time in their role as the King of Clubs, the epitome of the business man, and flanked by two managerial cards such as the Moon and the Bear, we see that E is destined to be her own boss and to perhaps guide other as well, although there is no team here, so my guess is that she will express her personality in a career where she can work mostly by herself, control her environment and make her own schedule.
The whole combination also indicates a marriage later in life, with a King of Clubs-type, more mature partner, and the couple will focus a lot on parenthood. A stable and prosperous material life is also indicated in connection with this marriage.
E has a more than vivid imagination, very rich and complex, with both the Moon and the Clouds together. She is compassionate, kind and feels and suffers the pains of those around her, and can resonate to those of the world, very strong empath. One of her life tasks is to overcome the moods, and the shadow of depression, with the Clouds card in the middle, a tendency to day-dream, to escape, to trip, to “fantasize” her life. The Bear is a strong symbol of awakening, and although the Bear is a solitary animal, looking at the bee in the card waking up our Bear here from his long hibernation, it is likely E will know at least one partner, or mentor, in her life who will give a sense of strength and awakening to her and bring clarity to her sense of purpose.
She probably works in periods, such as the Bear, hibernating for a while, and then able to work very hard for a short period of time when she uses a huge amount of energy and personal resources, and during each she has a tendency to overwork and then perhaps she feels a little depleted of energy and needs to rest again. Like the Bear.
MOON IN ARIES, 3rd DECAN, 10th HOUSE
STORK BOUQUET GARDEN
The Moon is sunnier than the Sun, this is lovely, E’s emotional nature is vibrant, feisty, and very rich, like a garden in bloom. There is great power of seasonal regeneration here, and it is likely the sunny seasons, spring and summer make her feel good, regenerate cyclically . We see restlessness with the Stork, but also someone who is committed to their long-term friends, who has a deeply maternal and caring emotional personality, with the Stork as an universal symbol of parenthood. There is a lot of femininity in all three cards, and the Stork is in fact the Queen of Hearts, a lovely, soft, caring, social, feminine, bubbly queen. E has a great sense of humor, that perhaps she shows better to her close friends, and can be goofy and very fun and playful. She is generous and the Bouquet, together with the Garden, shows a plethora of skills for anything happening with people and involving mediation work, public relations, beautifying places and people. She would probably be a great advisor for beauty tips, for both genders, and makeovers, in general. The emotional combo of a sustainable, skilled motivator and trainer.
Her emotional life will get better and better, with age. She feels like blooming among friends and dear ones, who help her enjoy the pleasures of life, and always open new opportunities and perspectives for her to use both her sunny talents, and her magnetic Plutonian nature for the benefit of all (the Garden). It is likely that the second part of her life will take place in a vivid, colorful, happy environment, full of dear friends, parties, celebration and events. Going to exhibitions, cinema, theatre, reading, have a strong impact on her emotional life, more like with other people, offering inspiration and fortifying her vivid imagination. She will have the chance to display her emotions to the public by means of creative work such as visual arts, literature, poetry.
MERCURY IN LEO, 2nd DECAN, 1st - 2nd HOUSE
SUN BOUQUET FISH
E’s mind is a fantasy world, an entire city or even country, populated with many characters, dreams and stories. We can see here a strong, victorious mind, great sense of humor, many talents and skills (the Bouquet is generally a card of richness of talents) and also a good speculative sense, if we consider the Fish a card of money and mathematics as well! She has the tendency to beautify things a little, and probably sees people and life events in a better light, initially. This spread indicates a very prolific creative imagination, and also the talent to convince and a karma of finding allies, especially unusual, artistic, open minded personalities. Based on this string, we can expect her greatest success in life to come from a creation or creations of her mind. She will find an important ally/supporter who will help her to give a tangible form to those and maybe teach her how to give a monetary value to her imaginative skills.
In terms of the mind, she needs constant stimulation from the environment, despite her imagination being so rich, and enjoys interacting with foreigners and since we are talking Mercury here, and we see two different countries, continents even: Africa and Asia, Egypt and Japan, this Mercury spread shows that E might speak at least one foreign language and that she will travel to beautiful (Bouquet) distant lands and have many international friends.
Her tastes are eclectic, she is a cosmopolitan, she enjoys parties, food, drinks and possibly cooking as well.
VENUS IN CANCER, 3rd DECAN, 12th HOUSE
MOON FOX CROSS
E’s love life is not the easiest part of her life path. The spread indicates prolonged periods of solitude, sadness, depression and pain, but at the same time the ability of the vivacious Fox in the middle, which in Lenormand corresponds to Pluto, to survive and regenerate and eventually find that fated partner (Moon+ Cross) this Fox mirrors. It is likely this partner will come when E doesn’t expect him to, and the meeting seems to be connected to her work. There is a sense of sleep in this string, and the scarcity of the last days of winter, so E’s story in love is a little like Sleeping Beauty, being awaken by a kiss. In my readings, the Fox comes up many times as the Kiss, being one card in which the character “drinks”.
For the first part of her life, in terms of how E expresses herself in love, it is possible that the veil of illusion created by the Moon Fox combination to have given her a sense of disappointment, disenchantment and eventually pain. She may have had the tendency to see people in a way that suits her imagination and a love dream she has rather than how they actually are. But this pain, the pain of the Cross, will eventually become an emotional test, a trial by fire, turning her into a Fox: Fox, among its many meanings, embodies our learning from our own mistakes, piercing the veil of illusion and looking at the truth, especially about ourselves, in the water mirror, and then “drinking” that truth. This is the moment when E’s love life will change, after confronting her own shadow she projects in relationships.
MARS IN GEMINI, 2nd DECAN, 11th HOUSE
BIRDS WOMAN DOG
We can see here that E is probably not very strong in body, she looks like what is called the “nervous” type, thin, walking and moving fast , with great dexterity, athletic, but in a delicate way. Mars also stands for our body and the way we move. This spread completes the same impression we found with the ASC, the same type. The Dog however has a different kind of strength, which comes from good instincts and the ability to work “like a dog”, a different kind of stamina. Work and play must be E’s motto, or let’s say a work that allows her to play, move, create, integrate, communicate. She loves to talk, but also to listen. Her style of action is “watch me do”, so we see here someone who acts rather quickly, and is able to do it all by herself. But the presence of the Dog shows us E will have many friends and again we have this feeling she will have a lot of helpful friends, especially during the second part of her life.
In her intimate life, for E it is important that the partner is a kin, a good friend, with similar tastes and able to communicate and express feelings and thoughts eloquently, communication is paramount for intimacy, and so are loyalty, playfulness (Dog) and a sense of intellectual communion (Birds).
Here we can also see the partner, for a woman’s Mars is one of the main indicators for the partner in a chart, and the Birds ( a major couple card) mirroring Dog (which stands for partner and even soulmate) flanking the woman show this partner will bring a sense of compatibility, stability, loyalty and complement her desire for action. With him, she will be able to “do” many things she hasn’t done before, but perhaps thought about, many times. The Birds, especially the Owls, are the planning part of our mind, and a new kind of action, and the time to see all these plans coming to fruition, will be experienced by E when the Dog comes into the picture (it’s funny to see that the Dog in Mystical Lenormand is actually posing for a portrait).
NN IN VIRGO, 1st DECAN, 2nd HOUSE
TREE RIDER FISH
This is a delightful spread for a life path, for it depicts two major “life” and “path” cards, the Tree of Life, and the Rider, such a beautiful metaphor here for our life as a “ride”. Being the “heart of the spread”, this Rider tells us E’s life will be quite a journey. On a karmic level, the Tree opening the spread shows E as an old soul, close to their final incarnations, a feeling that is emphasized by Tree mirroring Fish, a symbol of the eternal soul.
Life as a river, life as a tree.
With the Tree in the beginning it is likely that E’s first half of life and her childhood to have felt magical in a way, but at the same time, moving slower than the other part, for around the age of 33-35 her life should begin to speed up, but at the same time take a deeply spiritual turn. The rhythm is changed as if by the bite of the Snake on the horse of the Rider. Issues of past lives, patience, waiting, memories, family, childhood (Tree) would be processed, alchemically burned and turned into individuality (the Fish). Her financial life will also get better with time and the second part brings wealth, connections, power. But the ultimate karmic meaning of E’s life is transgressing solitude and reuniting with a lost partner, a lost dear soul from the past (Tree + Rider + Fish).
