Gypsy Line of 5 Spread~

*Please read prior post below, before reading this one*


I thought I would experiment and use the Line of 5 spread with the Gypsy cards. I actually did this spread on Sunday, before finding out that my step daughter was sick.

When I first looked at it, I thought that maybe I was going to feel very upset about putting our house on the market- and end up making myself sick! A very good interpretation, as we don’t want to sell our house- we are just trying to keep our heads above water! It’s been delayed a week, with my husband gone, and we may actually not have to go through with it- but I’ll save that for another reading post!

The Gypsy cards in this line, actually reflect pretty well the Kipper cards of the prior post. The middle card, House, showing that this is a family matter, and my sense of ‘Home’.

I think the Sadness and Loss represent how I feel about “losing” my husband at the moment. Normally, when all is running smoothly, I’m perfectly fine with him going off and travelling! (Frankly, I enjoy the Me time! lol)- but at this moment in our lives, we’re under incredible amounts of stress- just holding it together by our spiritual beliefs and our wacky sense of humor….and each other’s support.

I really feel his absense big time, unfortunately.

The Jealousy & Malady cards represent how I feel about the reason for his absence….having to go be with his daughter (and rightly so). Rather than the word Jealousy…which really doesn’t totally fit the bill; I think it’s more of a feeling of resentment and annoyance of the timing. I haven’t surrendered too well to the circumstances- and hence, now I’m sick with a bug, most likely because of the Resistance I felt!

If you then link the 2 outer cards, you have Sadness & Malady– I am definitely upset over the fact that my step daughter has a mystery illness. (They’re running a CAT scan today to see if it’s neurological)

Then linking the 2 inner cards, you have Loss & Jealousy, which again shows my sense of loss and resistance to him being gone at this time….

I didn’t have  clue what these cards were talking about on Sunday, so I didn’t post them right off the bat- now, I’m amazed at how perfectly they fit with the other card readings that we both did at the time!

I will definitely keep experimenting with the Gyspy cards and see what meanings they bring up to me 🙂 good or bad!


Multiple draws pointing to a message & and a Bird hitting the Window!!

My husband had a few cards in a number of readings that seemed to refer to the same thing. It didn’t matter what kind of deck he used, it still seemed to point to the same thing, and it had him really worried.

I didn’t write them all down, but here are a few examples:

As part of a bigger Lenormand spread, he had these 3 cards in the present position:


* I add this example after publishing, as I had forgotten it! He thought he was reading about someone else- and I blurted out there’s confusion around a woman’s health. (one more reference to his daughter, but we didn’t catch it at the time)


House-Short Illness- Rich Good Lord: In this instance,  I had thought that the Rich Good Lord was referring to someone else – as my husband usually shows up as the Good Lord or Principle Man.

This draw refers to an illness in the family, connected somehow to the R. Good Lord.


He drew this the other day, and became quite worried. He didn’t have long to wait to see what it was about either! We received a phone call from his daughter out in Vancouver, that she was really ill again, and had spent the day in the hospital- she’s experiencing muscle weakness in all limbs and pins and needles in them. This gal doesn’t call unless things are really bad!

My husband was on a plane the next day (yesterday) to fly across country and be by her side. I haven’t heard from him yet, to know what’s happening.

Around the same time of these draws, I drew the following cards:


I remember commenting to my husband, that that didn’t make much sense, because his daughter wouldn’t be considered “The Great Dame”! she’s too young!

Lo and behold! I dropped my husband off at the airport last night, came back and made dinner for my daughter and me, and by 8pm felt really sick! I was so worn out from all the hoopla, that I’ve come down with a really nasty sinus cold and sore/constricted throat. Instead of writing my blog entries last night, I ended up in bed!

I’m not faring too much better today either 😦  I’ve run my errands, and plan on laying very low today….it’s vitamin C time and ColdFX as my companions. Sigh* It never fails, I finally have a quiet moment to myself, and now I’m sick! lol

Tuesday morning, I drew these 3 cards from the Kipper:


I had secretly thought (but didn’t voice) that these cards reflected how I was feeling….which is a little hard to admit.

I thought they were showing my feelings that her illness/drama was “robbing” from my family affairs, my private inner sanctum…I can’t quite find the words for this, and it just doesn’t sound nice! Not only was the situation taking my husband away at a very critical time for us personally, but it was costing us airfare money that we just didn’t have.

Don’t get me wrong, I know she needed her Dad, and there was no way he wasn’t going to go– nor would I have suggested anything else! if it were one of my kids I’d do exactly the same thing…. I just think that the cards were reflecting that inward feeling.

Having said that- finding myself ALSO now sick, I can say that this darn bug that I seem to have, is now robbing me of my inner/personal time – I don’t feel well enough to do the things I wanted to do!!  So these 3 cards were a double whammy!!!  LOL

As we started having these cards appear over the past week, something else happened that set us both on alert.

We were sitting in our respective offices, off the living room, when we both were startled by a huge bang against the window. We both ran out, and found a beautiful bird laying on our deck, breathing heavily. Both of us felt heartsick, both for the bird and for the message it might be bringing.

In the past, when we have had birds hit our window so hard like that, it has been similar in meaning to the Tower card in the Tarot. It has almost always meant that we were about to get a shock- and most often, not a pleasant one.

It happened 7 years ago, just before my mother had a devastating stroke & subsequently died; and it’s happened before we got word that someone was ill, or before someone tried to serve my husband with legal papers! We just know, to “take note” when both of us get that particular message from a bird. Years ago, when I was helping my mother move out of her home, and move in with my former husband and me, I had crows hitting every window of the house for hours!All I could think of was the movie “Birds”! it was very very creepy, and I think a warning (which I didn’t heed) of the wrongness of the move in with us! lol

I took time out to Google about the spiritual meaning of birds hitting the window, and found a fascinating blog with many people writing in, on their experiences with birds! Well worth a read, if you’ve ever experienced the phenonomen.

Sure enough, just a few days later we found out that a loved one is  ill…..

I’m a firm believer in signs and synchronicities!
