I remember having these cards in a bigger reading a week or so ago. I offhandedly said that a Queen of Hearts friend of mine was ill. I thought she’d be traveling soon. I dismissed it, mainly because I’ve lost touch with many of my old friends and thought I wouldn’t know. And secondly it didn’t seem of much importance! 😦 Why is it that it’s the card spreads you dismiss that come back in your face??
I was totally surprised to find that a dear friend who lives locally, and who I know has had some difficulties, announced she was going to Vancouver for 2 weeks to seek some alternative healing there. She’s at the end of her tether and can’t get any relief.
The usually refers to illness, but also can denote difficulties, worries, depression, trouble sleeping. It’s not a nice card to see. All of the above I can relate to this friend.
In the past, my husband and I would give her Reiki every week, and it helped immensely; but now we don’t live as near.
This morning in my cards, I had these cards:
As my friend, Kapherus pointed out, (where have you gone dear teacher?? no forum…:( )
the traditionally is the card of disappointment, illness and restriction. The refers to any situation that is out of balance. (Interestingly this is literally one of her issues.) It also can denote a visit to the doctor or a health professional.
Now for me, the is about getting one’s fondest wish, similar to the 9 Hearts/Cups or showing the thoughts of the , positive, happy thoughts… I deducted from this that my friend, the Queen of Hearts, was going to be pleased with some healing modality she experienced while in Vancouver.
It traditionally denotes a young man, who is beloved. He could be the person’s son, or a person of either sex that the person has a close bond with. If it’s not a relative, then it might be referring to a young man that she meets who gives her some kind of treatment.
My intuition tells me she’s going to be satisfied with some healing experience she has over there.
I have 2 weeks to hear the outcome! I will definitely update once I know more.
I am always humbled how the cards show things very precisely whether I “get it” or not! This is why keeping a journal on your card spreads is so helpful in expanding your understanding of what the cards are telling you. You can go back and see with hindsight, what the message was.
It feels so good to write about the cards again!!!!!
Cartomancy is so much a part of who I am, that I felt like there has been a major hole in my life not writing on my blogs this past year or so. I’ve been on an incredible roller coaster ride, but somehow, I will get back to writing.
WordPress has changed in my absence, so bear with me as I learn the ropes all over again 🙂
