I was not thinking of anything particular. I asked for my attention to be drawn to anything I should be aware of atthe moment which would require prompt action on my part. The cards were shuffled and drawn at random. This is what I drew:
‘these images are from the ASS Lenormand available on the ‘public domain. These are here for appreciation only’
I drew the usual 3 cards and the 4th card to clarify the progression, and then I drew the 5th card as I noticed a story evolving-
’23 mice + 10 Scythe + 25 Ring + 22 Crossroad + 17 Storks’
I hesitated posting this reading as it is quite personal and revealing. However, in order to serve as a mental reminder as I requested advise which would require prompt action on my part to ensure the best possible outcome. Also to show how the cards responded promptly.
As it turns out- this became a no layout draw with the keycard 25 Rings coming into focus-
The central cards- describe a sudden break/ cut off within an established relationship (scythe+ring) the perverbial divorce. Thus leading to a parting of ways- the get out card (ring-Crossroads).
The mice denotes the nature of the situation- difficult and being ill at ease which is causing slow drain of the spirit. The Scythe is about making a clear cut decision once and for all- no two ways about it. Together- the cards are describing a situation which is causing mental anguish/ a dis-ease which need prompt actions- ie to breakaway.
The crossroads informs of the new freedom when this is done- the opening of options, I am free to go where I choose upon making that clear break. The storks is about positive movement and expansion- the freedom to move and not be tied down.. So- the advise is recognising that a situation is causing more harm than good, not to leave it any longer than necessary- the sooner I breakaway the better as it will leave me with an open road and move in a more positive direction devoid of grief and anxiety..
Looking into the book to double check my interpretation:
mice+scythe = stressful decision
scythe+ring = separation/ breaking a commitment
ring+ crossroad = breaking up / separation
crossroad+storks = improvements/ progress
I am noticing more than ever that my relationship with the cards is getting closer and closer day by day. As I am becoming more focused in my thoughts, the cards are speaking with clarity-
Let me know what you make of it..
