Goethe Playing cards~

These are images from the GOETHE playing card deck. I did a search to see where they might be ordered, and I found them at Amazon.co.uk. I’d love to have a physical set of these one day! :)  (You can click on each image to see them in better detail).

3 of Hearts – Queen of Hearts – Ace of Diamonds

I drew these on Monday, while I was still in quite a bit of turmoil with my significant other. I felt really low, and was surprised to see this draw. (I didn’t explain it to him either! lol some things are better left unsaid!)

The 3 of Hearts shows expanding love, things growing emotionally, or a celebration.

The Queen of Hearts represents me :)

And the Ace of Diamonds has a few meanings: it could refer to a gift, a ring, or a message of some sort. Now I also connect it to the Ace of Pentacles in the tarot; so I could also guess the beginning of a financial venture, or money being offered etc.

At the time of the draw, we were hardly acknowledging each other, the anger was so great; and in a fit we had taken our rings off! talk about tumultous! I had quickly put mine back on the next morning, having pivoted in my perspective, but he hadn’t…….and it hurt to see the bare finger!

I smiled when I saw this draw, as I immediately got the message that love would return and expand, and the wedding ring would be back :)

Sure enough, this morning all is well – we made up, and the ring re-appeared. So the cards were a reassurance that all would get better:)

(we aren’t normally so intense!! thank goodness)

Now on another level this could be saying that we’ll be celebrating shortly because of a financial counter-offer from the defendant in my husband’s court case. That would fit too – but my immediate thought was of a personal one, and it happened within 24 hours, so that’s definitely a match…

Playing cards~

I drew these earlier this week. I thought they were referring to my female cousin that I had been in contact with. I couldn’t see how they might relate to me, to be honest, not then.

The 8 of Hearts usually refers to a relationship; not necessarily a romantic one.

The 8 of Swords describes this relationship as being one-sided, out of balance somehow. It also has the meaning of feeling trapped.

I knew this all pertained to the Queen of Hearts, (which is also me) but at the time of the draw I was happy and looking forward to my husband returning.

He wasn’t home 24 hours before there was a blow up over our dog. It quickly escalated, sadly; and the happy, loving feelings I had felt earlier, were replaced with feeling absolutely trapped in a relationship that is all about ‘him’. Had I had the funds to leave, I think I would have! This connects to the Lenormand draw that I did a day later, which I’ve written about here.

So here’s a draw that I totally didn’t see for me, thinking I would hear about another Queen of Hearts with a relationship issue, never for once thinking that I would feel so awful, so quickly! sigh*  The cards are something else!

Now if only the great draws that I have also had this week would manifest so quickly!!!!!

I’m back! hopefully for good this time :)

I have been disconnected from the WWW for a bit of time now, thanks to my laptop getting a nasty virus and needing to go into the shop. You might say, that my dear friend went down with the Flu! It’s so nice to have it back :)

While she was gone, I continued to do readings, and also have been listening to a wonderful audio course from the Tarot School on the Minor Arcana. I can’t recommend their work highly enough! I’ve been reading the tarot for most of my life, (with great success, I might add) but I found myself re-thinking the minor arcana in delightful ways after listening to this one course. My ‘time-out’ was well spent, as it has brought the tarot back into my enthusiastic focus, once more. After 20+ years, I am wanting to delve much deeper.

As I said, I’ve read the tarot very well for years, and I’ve known people who are amazing with the tarot without any formal training….totally using their psychic faculties; but I was surprised at all the little things I learnt, listening to this course! I wish I had found it years ago :)

In one session they were talking about the 9 of Swords. This is not a nice card, by any means. Most commonly it is regarded as someone who is caught up in their worries so deeply that they can’t let go. It’s being trapped in the ‘monkey mind’ and being ruled by it.

Another aspect of this card was brought to my attention though; it’s also the card of aggression, violence etc. There is a carving on the bed of the Rider Waite decks, that shows physical violence ( not very clearly here – sorry).

I also read a lot with the playing cards, and sometimes post them here. Recently, my husband drew these:

200px-Playing_card_club_4_svg_small200px-Playing_card_spade_9_svg_small200px-Playing_card_spade_A_svg_small1

The 4 of Clubs can mean a telephone call, so I thought he might receive a  call that caused him some worry. Since both the 9 and the Ace of Spades can lean that way, I knew I was missing something. News of a death?getting a phone call and hearing that someone is ill? what???

A few days later, I heard my husband take a call from a creditor that we owe money to. We’ve fallen behind on a few bills sadly, and it’s caused a great deal of stress.

This creditor wasn’t being nice, though….he was being very pushy and aggressive, so much so, that my husband hung up on him! It was hearing his end of the conversation, that the penny finally dropped for me.

The 9 of Spades was, in this case, referring to aggressive, bullying behavior – just as had been mentioned for the 9 of Swords in the audio course.

So the meaning of this draw came through within 2 days – a bullying, not-nice phone call that would cause worry (Ace of Spades)-

It was an awful experience – but I got a wonderful insight on this card! LOL

(*I sometimes think I live on another planet…. haha)

update: This draw also had a second level to it. My husband also received a telephone call from his daughter in England. She’s come down with a flu which has him worried, but luckily not the Swine variety.

Playing cards talk about my daughter-

jack-O-diamonds9ofSpadesclubs-7queen-diamonds

I haven’t been able to get near my computer! it’s been really bugging me :)

First a total meltdown, which I finally fixed and reloaded all the software…only not to have any time to write about my cards! I’m thinking of getting up extra early or stay up very late (!) to find some time for myself. I can see at least 2 more weeks of hectic living before it settles back down. All the kids will be out of the nest then, for the first time in my life….very strange feeling.

I mention this, as it’s pertinent to the drawing I did last Thursday. We were having delay after delay in receiving the money that was due; and it had caused a lot of stress on whether or not we would be able to go forward in sending my youngest daughter off to Uni after all. Of all the kids, she’s the one who deserves and needs to go the most- She was one of 30 in her graduating class that had High Honors :)

A deadline of Friday for more of the fees was looming, and no hope of being able to pay.

The Jack of Diamonds represents my daughter. It usually comes up as the “student card” for me, or my Virgo child. It also comes up for my step-daughter a lot, as it represents a young relative by marriage.

In this instance it related to my daughter, Vanessa, and the worry surrounding her situation. Fortunately, I saw the 7 of Clubs and the Queen of Diamonds as us being able to work things through with the woman in charge at the University.

The 7 of Clubs can relate to work and what someone does, but it can also have the meaning of talking things through, working things through; in this case with the Queen of Diamonds.

I was so stressed over this, that I developed mouth ulcers!

Luckily, the next day, it worked out as the cards predicted : we were able to get an extension. So we will have the money and the ability to pay in time. All too close to the wire, for sure, but we’re getting there!

The cards were right again–

Back in the early part of July, (the 8th-12th to be exact) I had a few worrisome draws that I didn’t write about.

One of them included these:

jack-heartsqueen-diamondsBP-FrogAce

The Jack of Hearts usually represents my 20 year old son, and I’m the Queen of Diamonds a great deal of the time. I immediately commented to my husband that it looked like I was going to be worried about him.

There were other draws in the oracles showing illness around the Jack of Hearts/L’Amante and I felt a great deal of worry. He’s been out in Alberta doing a work co-op for his college work.

Sure enough, within 2 days of the different draws, we visited with him on webcam and discovered that he was quite ill. We couldn’t seem to convince him to go to the doctor either! so I was very fretful!

He  eventually did go to the doctor’s when he still couldn’t sleep because of the pain in his joints.

I have only found out last night, that my son actually came down with the dreaded Swine Flu!!!! I almost had a heart attack! If I didn’t see that he was now over it and fine, I would have fallen apart. One of his college friends died of the Swine flu at the beginning of the epidemic, when he returned to Mexico to visit his parents.

Talk about an unbelievable year. I just count my lucky stars that my son is ok. He is coming home next week and I know that I’ll be doting on him! 11_2_104

Cards with the same message-

Ace of Spadesaceofdiamondsist2_6961566-queen-of-clubs-two-playing-card

*An unpleasant or worrisome message being given to the Queen of Clubs.

militareladronemica

A person of the court, an official, being sneaky with the Enemy woman!

In other words….. the Process Server pulling a sneaky stunt to serve court papers on the Bad Woman!

30 Court person8 False person7  Pleasing Letter

Again, a Court person (and this time literally) using deceptive means, or tricks, to serve documents!

LetterLossThief

The Thief card comes up regularly to denote the nasty woman that my husband is legally fighting. In this draw, it shows her finally receiving the news, or the documents that defeats her. I am pretty sure that these cards, also, are showing that she finally gets served. The Judge has demanded her presence in Court, mid-July. She has done everything she possibly can, to avoid being served. She knows that if she goes before the Judge now, he’ll send her to jail for contempt! The end is near, and I know that the process server was going to attempt again, over the July 4th weekend to catch her, and serve her the papers.

These are only a few of the draws in the last few days that show the same theme. I’m convinced that woman will, or has been served. Hopefully we’ll have news of this on Monday or Tuesday.

Isn’t it fascinating how the different decks can show the same theme? It helps to confirm to me that the cards speak clearly…no matter what kind of deck you choose.

Showing a death-

Hi everyone,

I’ve been offline having been awfully busy with my youngest daughter’s high school graduation. I was so proud. She made High Honors for the year, and only 30 in her graduating class managed that :) It’s hard to believe that my baby will be starting University in the Fall.

My last draw has not come to pass yet….it’s been 3 days? absolutely nothing comes close to being interpreted as Merriment-Unexpected Joy-Fortune….not even my daughter’s graduation! So I’m still puzzled as to what that’s talking about.

I continued to read cards and drew these 3 playing cards the morning of Thursday, June 26.

Ace of Spadesjack-spadesKingSpades

I thought that it might be describing my ex-husband. He’s always the King of Spades or the King of Swords. The Jack next to him describes him as a man from my past, but also the Jack of Spades shows up for me to describe someone who is shifty, or lying. This is true for him!

The Ace of Spades, can denote a worried mind, troubles; so my first inclination was to say that he was worrying about what he did, and it was causing him some grief.

Then another thought crossed my mind. I said, hesitantly, I wonder if this could mean a sudden death of a man?The Ace of Spades with 2 other spades can sometimes predict a passing. Seeing the Jack of Spades is similar to the Page of Swords in the tarot; which can mean sudden news.

We both just looked at each other, wondering if someone we knew was going to pass…

My husband during the same card reading time, drew these 3 lenormand cards:

06clouds08coffin03boat

I had taken this to mean, mysterious death…or questions/doubt around a passing. This all happening at a distance from us.

Neither of us had a clue and just noted it down for June 26th.

It was later that day that the news media announced that Michael Jackson had passed away. There have been growing questions about prescription medications that he was taking as well.

It wasn’t until late that night, that it dawned on me that those two draws were talking about a news event and not something within our family. His passing was so strong in the ethers, that our cards even picked it up.

No matter what you thought about the controversy surrounding his life, he was a brilliant entertainer and we were deeply saddened by the news.

Playing cards: King of Hearts – 5 of Diamonds – King of Clubs

Four days ago I drew 3 cards from a deck of playing cards. These were:

king-heartsPoker-sm-23A-5dking-clubs

The King of Hearts is my husband. I told him that he was going to hear from his lawyer about the legal matter shortly.

The 5 of Diamonds can relate to legal issues or a legal judgement, and next to the King of Clubs I was pretty certain that it was describing the lawyer. The King of Clubs is the business man who is usually also married, which his lawyer is :)

Sure enough, last night, only 3 days later, my husband got the first communication in weeks from his lawyer sharing the latest news on the court case. The judge has spoken, and action is being taken!

I love seeing the dailys coming through loud and clear!

Playing cards come true within hours!

As part of a bigger general spread with the playing cards, in the position of what is unknown I drew these 4 cards:

king-diamonds208px-10_of_spades.svgQueen of Heartsking-hearts

I said to my husband, “this doesn’t look good! we’re the King and Queen of Hearts….”
There is grief or frustration connected to the King of Diamonds that somehow affects us. I hope it’s isn’t “D” our financial trader friend…

I then took a step back and said, “well, this could be a banker type or someone concerned with finances giving us hassle or grief..”  we both rolled our eyes and hoped that wasn’t the case.

Sure enough, a few hours later, there was a phone call from one of the credit card companies. Usually the people are very decent and polite, but this time my husband got someone who was obnoxious. He got so pissed off at him, that he demanded a supervisor and hung up until they could find one for him to talk to!

These people call every few days, “gently” reminding us that we’re overdue with a payment (Like we didn’t know!)- but usually they’re polite! this one really got my mate’s temper riled.

So remember, King of Diamonds….banker type, credit card/finance guy….  (@!$#%8#)

Playing cards~

jack-spadesspades9-70551110 of heartsking-hearts

This morning, these 4 cards were a part of a larger spread that I did.

Most of the time, the Jack of Spades represents my husband’s oldest daughter, who lives abroad. They haven’t been as close this year.

The 9 of Spades told me that there would be stress/worry around this young lady; and the 10 of Hearts described the stress…to do with family matters; in particular, with the King of Hearts (her father).

I took note of it, but didn’t mention it to him. Out of the blue later today, he decided to try to find out how she was; and called her mother. Surprisingly, his daughter happened to be visiting and answered the phone. They spoke for awhile, but it was very strained and polite. She was very uptight and on the defensive about everything. It was not a very enjoyable call.

I found it amazing that he chose today to try to contact her, and actually connected with her. It’s been about 6 months since they’ve spoken!

The Playing cards correctly predicted that scenario-
