Weekly Drawing – Tea Leaf Cards

Click on the picture to see it more closely-

I drew these this morning, and following the last reading, I am grateful to see these cards!

The Tiger, for me, always represents my husband. He is a Tiger in the Chinese Zodiac and fits it to a tee. They have 2 sides for sure – and you can see my hand at the back, trying to soothe just a bit, the unpredictable Tiger, wondering if I’ll get my hand bit off!

Target describes my husband very well. He is very goal oriented and can’t understand why others don’t follow suit to the degree he does.

Butterfly means a change for the better; and the following card Barrel says that something I feel is lacking is going to change for the better….or something that he (?) feels is lacking is going to get better? Most likely both!

It is my hope that these cards say that conditions surrounding us take a turn for the better, and that he doesn’t bite the hand that tries to soothe him.

Why do people turn on the ones closest to them? lashing out? it’s a very short-sighted thing to do!

Another way to read this possibly is that the very goal oriented Tiger has a change for the better around something seen as lacking.

I would like to think it relates to me, and I wonder what Rae would say was her experience. But oracle cards for me often talk about other people around me, and are not always necessarily a message directly to do with me. It’s one of those grey areas that I just have to follow my intuition on, and then come back and see if I was right.

I’m hoping the message means both!

Update:The message did end up meaning both and in a very surprising way. Yes, for me personally, things got better between my Metal Tiger and myself. It was a tough week work-wise and full moon -wise (!) but there were improvements in our relationship in a way that I had hoped for.

On another level, I was shocked at how these cards pinpointed an event for my husband. In general terms I will share that he has been deeply involved in negotiating a big land deal for his company. It has been a grueling few months getting it just right. Funds had been delayed, and the deal was left floating. This week, my husband learned some critical information about loans owed by the other party and had one of the creditors contact his lawyer. It literally was a game changer on the deal and will mean that he will save millions on this project.

Rae’s warning about being careful for what you wish for turned out to be very true though, because my husband is not a cut-throat when it comes to business, he and I firmly believe in karma. With that in mind, he has carefully tried to find the middle road for a fair deal on both sides, in light of the new information. It is a very tricky process!

So yes! these cards are very quickly becoming one of my favorite oracles (although nothing will take the place of the lenormand in my heart!! lol) — simply uncanny so far 🙂

  1. As a fellow Tiger I know we can be a bit unpredictable. What is hes element if I may ask? Mine is wooden so that has a slightly stabilizing effect, and tames the beast a bit 😉

    • He’s a Metal Tiger 🙂

      Metal Tiger – Years 1950 and 2010

        Assertive, competitive and sharp, once Metal Tigers set their sights on their goals there’s no stopping them. They’ll always do what’s necessary to remain at the center of attention. Metal Tigers tend to jump to conclusions; a behavior they need to work at improving.”

        (Definitely him! lol ) – But for some reason, as an Earth Pig, I keep being drawn to Tigers! I have a few friends who are Tigers as well. My husband is a Cancerian Tiger which is an interesting combo. Tigers are fascinating, grand people….sometimes hard to live with! but grand all the same 🙂

      • That they are, grand people indeed.

        I have had a Pig(Virgo) in my life for the last 15 years, and a more loyal friend I could never ask for.
        We have shared a few lifetimes, and even faced eachother in battle a few times. Yet in each lifetime we are attracted to eachother, for the one would not be complete without the other without having had some interaction.

        Pigs are dilligent, hard working, warm hearted, kind and caring.

        However…they can be ruthless too in dealing with anyone that threatens their clan/family/sircle of friends. A pig is not someone to trifle with, but then neither are we Tigers 😉

  2. Hi Spiritsong:
    Again, your reading is spot on. I feel the Butterfly and the Barrel refer to you. The Butterfly is a very interesting card because while it signifies a change for the better, it also embodies the old Chinese saying “be careful what you wish for as it might not be what you want in hindsight.”
