Excerpt taken from the LWB provided in the Madame Endora’s deck. Thank you to the Monolith Graphics duo for this insightful layout. So, where now- a reading of course-J Here’s one done when I took timeout from the Lenormand, a rare occurrence but it happened on the 3/2/2008. I will not post any pics as I am yet to receive permission to do so.
|The Hourglass||The Knight||The Wyvern|
|The Sun||The Siren||The Golem|
|The Harlequinn||The Heart||The Earth|
Just looking at the layout is breathtaking..
The Siren in position 1 represents me. –‘temptation may lead you astray’- the siren sings beautiful songs luring men to their deaths. A bit dramatic.. but nevertheless, this could be how I view myself or how people view me. What this means to me, although sometimes an image is projected, the inner self can be the exact opposite. I may be/look/ or act like a Siren, but what I am on the inside is the opposite perhaps. What I should do- is examine my motivation when it comes to getting what I want.
The Knight in position 2 represents my aspirations- ‘triumph over adversity’- the knight demonstrated valour and courage. Is this what I lack- or is this what I want in my companion- knight in shining armour. 2 things comes to mind- one has to be brave to face adversity and courage in any endeavours whether in life or work-
The Heart/ Love in position 3 represents my worldly pursuits- ‘True love and fidelity’- how lovely is this- my wordly desire is to have this. Enough said. The Sun in position 4 represents what is behind me- ‘Your perseverance is rewarded’- great, all the hard work and efforts I have put in to my work and my career will reap its rewards. Patience is a virtue.
The Golem in position 5 represents what is yet be- ‘A close friend acts on my behalf’- even better, someone somewhere has taken notice of my efforts and consistency- I may or may not know this person- but nevertheless he/she is in favour of me. There are other ways of interpreting this—however- I will keep it simple.
The Hourglass in position 6 represents Past Spiritual/Romantic Influence- ‘Time is of essence’- hmm.. obviously at some point I must have been complacent or maybe I have actually acted on time!! Even so, any opportunities that arise now, I shouldn’t hesitate in snatching it up- great- bring on the opportunities!
The Wyvern in position 7 represents Future Spiritual/Romantic Influence- ‘Your secrets are safe’— What ?? I think at this point- this oracle is getting very up close and personal- I’ll keep this to myself–;) all I wish to say is this, in the LWB- the Wyvern is the keeper of secrets and the granter of second chances-
Tha Harlequinn in position 8 represents Past influence on money/health- ‘True Feelings are Masked’- this is actually an accurate representation of the work I do- professionalism dictates me to mask my true feelings/impressions/reactions to others—
The Earth in position 9 represents the Future influence on money/health- ‘Utilize logic, reason and common sense’—well, yes- yes, yes—summons my work in 3 words- logic, reason and common sense-, and in health as well.
I am really impressed what one can get when one allows the Oracle to speak freely within the parameters you set them- a lesson in exercising control- within limits and focus- The Lenormand and the Madame Endora Deck can be guided when handled with respect and humility.
