Gypsy cards: Constancy – Visit – House


I hadn’t planned on posting another Gypsy card draw today, but the energy has been so strange leading up to the Full Moon on May 9th that I thought I would.

Yesterday I wrote about Misfortune – House – Sweetheart, and that I twisted my ankle pretty badly.

Another Misfortune befell me as well! Hubby is a classic Cancerian, and ever since my children and I moved in with him 10 years ago, we discovered that we could predict when the Full Moon would be, just by his behavior! He always gets very moody and cranky the 3 days leading up to it. I’ve read of “moon madness”, but brother! never thought I’d be married to someone who could change so much during the moon phases! crazy stuff-

He chose yesterday to go off the handle and get angry with me, over something he got it in his head that I did and I hadn’t! So, on top of being in BIG discomfort, I had an irate mate to deal with. It’s still not fixed, and I’m kind of dreading having to communicate with him later today… I was  glad to see this draw.

Constancy gives stable energy to the surrounding cards & situation. Nothing dramatic is going to happen, it should be pretty smooth.

Visit is the next card in the draw. Visit can mean literally just that, or it can mean discussions. Looking closely at the card, a few things come time mind. We have an older woman, positioning herself a bit higher on the staircase, she comes across as thinking she’s right about something, and she looks a bit stern in expression. The younger woman, is in a lower, more submissive position on the staircase. She looks like she’s listening to a criticism and frowning! She holds flowers in a gesture of openess, and wears a white dress. This makes me think of innocence and purity, as where the other, older woman is in darker drabber colors (more negative!)

The younger girl, just wants to be accepted and get along, but she’s getting an earful. That’s what I’m a bit worried about, that I’ll have to go through a criticizing, not so nice conversation, because of someone else’s negativity – but the Constancy card looks as though it reassuring me that this won’t be the case.

I’ll end up having an ok discussion with him. The House shows that this is family stuff, family discussions/meetings.

ha! we’ll see! Full Moon time is always difficult 🙂 Anybody else have to cope with a Cancerian?????


Update: these cards were pretty ‘right on’. I was definitely the younger woman standing lower on the staircase, just wanting to be light and happy – no drama – and he was definitely the other. It wasn’t completely smooth sailing to begin with, but it became smooth and stable pretty quickly. Not the bad encounters I was imagining. Darn good thing he doesn’t read my blog!! LOL Really glad that Constancy was there in the draw!

Pages of Shustah: Bed, Sacred Mushroom, Angel of Summer


I drew these cards before my mishap of twisting my ankle. That one event, certainly changed the tone of my day. I was forced to stop &  rest.

I have two red cards here. Red represents the struggles, adversity, troubles and disappointment. I have definitely felt that today.

The Bed card shows the need for rest, and the possibility of illness or injury if you don’t! I’ve actually drawn this card a few times in the last week, so the warning was there. I was aware of it, but felt that I couldn’t just choose to slow down because I was under so much pressure to achieve certain things by a deadline. My husband is still away, so there was no one else to lean on. I just keep getting the message, “be still” when I see the bed card.

The Sacred Mushroom, according to the Pages of Shustah book, is the card of psychic and Occult exchange. It tells you to listen to your intuition, listen to you Inner wisdom. There is a shifting of consciousness available at this time, if I’m sensitive and alert enough to stay open & listen.

Sadly, all I’m aware of presently is the great pain radiating throughout my ankle and up my leg! it’s awfully hard to notice much else!

I honestly feel that these 2 cards are telling me that if Iwill “be still and listen” that there will be an exchange spiritually. Maybe I will receive a message from my Higher Self or a guide. There is guidance to be had here. Ken Foor writes “A new teacher may be coming to you.”

There is something about being stopped in my tracks that is going to be of benefit to me 🙂

And then, there is the Blue Angel of Summer. Blue is the color of communication for me; thinking of the throat chakra which is represented by this color. My mind drifts to all forms of communication, clairaudience for instance; the ability to hear Spirit.

Spending time with the Blue Angel of Summer, I was very aware that she is sitting there poised, with her head slightly tilted, as though trying to hear something. Above her are 3 swirling bits…what are they? Energy? Whispers on the wind? There are 3 of them, the number of manifestation. Something is in the process of manifesting to the Blue Angel. She is intently aware and listening.

The Blue Angel of Summer is the card of success. This card, according to Ken Foor is associated with the Archangel Uriel.  Uriel is one of the most powerful Archangels and is associated with  illumination. Uriel will assist you with brilliant new ideas entering your mind… or so my research says!

Uriel transmutes lower vibrations into frequencies of higher vibration.

When to ask Archangel Uriel for help – Call Uriel forth if you have trouble sleeping or are feeling tense or anxious. (that’s me!) Uriel is here to release any fears or worries you may have concerning a situation. He can give you the determination and assist you to transform any aspect of your life.

So this card packs a whollop!

This forced rest, may just be the catalyst to go deeper within, and receive guidance and help from another level. I remember years ago, during a development circle at Spiritualist church in Northern England, being given the name Archangel Uriel in meditation. I have never studied Angels and their meanings, but remember being told something similar to what I’ve read today. I was going through a very difficult time then too, and felt such peace after the encounter.

It’s time to meditate regularly again, no doubt about it.
