Life has been so hectic over the past few months, that I haven’t had a chance to seriously get to know the wonderful Mah Jongg cards. I thought that I would add them to the rotation of cards that I work with, even if it’s only to draw 3 or 4 cards…
Here’s what I drew:
6 Bamboo (Water) – The element of Water signifies communication.This may be in the form of correspondence, or travel. It is also linked with health and healing (good).
Green Dragon – Commence- This card gives the go ahead for any new enterprise. If there are doubts embarking on new schemes, this card is a reassuring sign that one can proceed with confidence. Regarding health, this card expresses confidence in the patient’s recovery. This is an excellent sign for the inauguration of any new enterprise.
5 Bamboo – Lotus – The opening lotus signifies new birth, the mystical symbolism is of a spiritual awakening. Frequently this symbol appears to those who have recently endured a severe loss, financially or otherwise – it is the rebirth, the starting again. There may be unfulfilled ambitions which now have the possibility of being realized. The great Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu said, “What may appear to be a calamity often gives rise to fortune.”
For many, the lotus brings the happiest of news, or indicate an opportunity for a new life. It is always a reassuring symbol, with new ideas and inner happiness. Contentment is signified.
30 West- I added a 4th card, which isn’t usually done as they are read in three’s…I just couldn’t resist! lol so I’ll call it a ‘clarifying card’ 🙂 The card West seems to represent the objective, that the querent has to face. This is either another person, like a partner either in business or marriage, or it may represent obstacles.
As a clarifyer I think both apply; it relates to my partner or his daughter, and also to the obstacles we’ve been faced with.
So in summation, I think there are 2 ways I could read this. If it relates to another, and it’s about health; then it’s concerning my step daughter. This might be saying that there is going to be a recovery, but I think with the Lotus it’s also saying that this will have been a wake-up call to live her life differently. She is a workaholic, stressing to perfection. It has gotten steadily worse over the last few years. So possibly this health matter will be the message she needed, to balance life better.
The other way of taking these cards is to say that there is news coming, and that things are moving forward, and that we will be starting a new chapter in our lives soon.
I hope it is both, frankly.
