Ecclesiastic – Marriage – Sweetheart

Oh my God! it’s April 17th and it’s started to snow outside!! Unbelievable – not good for the flowers, that’s for sure!

I hadn’t planned on sharing another Gypsy draw, as I’ve posted a few in a row, but today’s draw intrigued me so much that I wanted to share it with you.

My husband, upon seeing them, thought it was a “sweetheart” of a deal with the so-called Spiritual group that he’s been legally battling 🙂

Actually, considering my other draws that accompanied these, that’s very possible!

We’ve noticed that many times when the Sweetheart comes up in one of our readings, it doesn’t necessarily fit to think of the card as me, or a Queen of Hearts/Cups type of person. Sometimes it’s describing a feeling instead; such as loving, nurturing, something really wonderful. I’ve never seen this written about before, but that’s been our experience of the card.

Now, Ecclesiastic/Marriage might be just that, a beautiful union! maybe there will be a marriage on my side of the family…. or a new level of closeness within my own marriage….

What I saw though, (and kept to myself) was that I was making a Spiritual commitment, or a commitment to my Spirituality…….somehow, more so than in the past. That message made me grin and feel really pleased.

I’ve been promising myself that I would get back to meditating every day, and last night while pondering my life, made a firm commitment to spiritual practice and study. I had recently decided that there were a few disciplines in card reading that I wanted to study on a deeper level as well. Last night had been pivotal in my mental process for some reason! lol , so to see these cards the following morning, really made me smile. It’s as the cards were saying “Good Job!”

Malady – House – Thought

Ugh! I drew these last Friday morning, and knew that it couldn’t be good, whatever it was referring to! and I was right.

It became very evident that a “malady” had indeed affected the Home, in the sense of Negative Energy – negative thoughts prevailing.

My husband ended up in a very negative thinking state, that I wasn’t able to cajole him out of, or help him pivot from. It pervaded the entire home, and all I wanted to do was escape!

Thankfully, no one else was home, but it was very tough on me. It only lasted the one day (thank goodness) & the following day, I recognized my mate again 🙂

At the time though, it was as if a big dark cloud had descended over our Home……….nasty.

Gypsy cards: Death – Desire – Sweetheart

I was very drawn to these cards this morning- they seemed to be a soothing balm to my tired Soul.

My very first thought was “the ending of Longing & Desire for me.”

I have been the woman looking out the window…in the world, but not really a part of it, this past year.

Funds have been so minimal, that it’s been a game of window shopping, and visualizing in my mind. The Library was my best friend this past year! lol I have looked out longingly wanting to participate, but not being able to…..just watching the world go by…

SO, are these cards telling me that that’s all about to change?? that there’s major change around that particular way of being about to happen? God! I hope so.

I’m afraid I won’t know how to act when the restrictions are lifted, to be honest!

Lover – Fidelity – Anger

A few days ago, (I think on Thursday) my husband drew these 3 cards from the Gypsy deck.

I remember telling him that someone close to him, someone loyal, was going to be angry about something. He was worried that his business partner, who comes up as the Dog in the Lenormand, might get angry  with him for some reason.

I didn’t think so, as the Lover card would have come after the Anger card if it were directed at him. My guess was that he was going to hear about frustrations/upset from someone he liked; maybe lending a a listening sympathetic ear.

I never would have guessed that the dog/Fidelity card would end up representing ME!

Saturday, I woke up happy, but quickly started having heavy burning sensations in my chest. It was the sensation one would have with Bronchitis. It was so sudden and so fierce, it frightened me; I felt as though I was suffocating.

So, I sort of lost my inner balance, and next thing I knew I was acting out towards my husband, yelling at him! I never do that!!and I lost it with our Boxer when she took too long sniffing outside! I was a perpetual short fuse with everything and everyone. My energy was so spikey, that both computers started acting funny when I went near them – it was not a pleasant day! lol

I ended up being the B*tch!!!  sigh   Fortunately, he knew I wasn’t myself and didn’t take offense 🙂 I guess you could also say that the Lover was loyal through the Anger episode……

Happy Gypsy trio-

This is an incredible draw! It looks like my husband and I are going to get a major surprise around money, and be two happy campers! lol

My merriment would include a grocery shopping run to fill the larder with some healthy foods. It’s amazing how one’s perception changes when you’ve done without for a period of time…….all I can think about is a big gourmet salad…and maybe a glass of champagne 🙂

That would definitely represent Merriment to me! lol something healthy, and something sublime.

Gypsy cards and Kapherus’ Spread~

Our neighborhood has been having internet problems over the past few weeks, so I never know when I’m going to be able to write! at least we’re getting a discount for the poor service!

The other day, I tried out Kaph’s streamlined lenormand spread, but with the Gypsy cards instead. It seems to work very well with other oracles as well.

You shuffle the deck, focusing on a topic for the question. In my example, I focused on the Money card (what a surprise!). Then you lay down 5 cards, whether from the top of the deck (as I do) or by fanning out the cards and picking 5.

The middle position is seen as the ‘House of Money’, and whatever falls in that position will get combined for an answer. You then read the cards traditionally, from left to right, expanding on the message of the middle position.

Here is my example:

House of Money

My question had been “where is the 1st batch of money going to come from? the legal or somewhere else?”.
You can see that I actually drew the Money card as part of the reading. Kapherus says that this just affirms to him that he focused well on his question.

First, I look at the middle position, and see the Enemy card with the ‘invisible’ money card.
At the moment, when the Enemy comes up in a draw for me, it’s referring to a literal Enemy – the only one that my family has – the nasty woman in the legal suit.

So this tells me that money ought to be coming from that direction first.

Death – Money says to me there is a change in financial circumstances, and that the “Enemy” is involved with that change.

Message – House says that there will be word, or news coming to the Home/family.

Interesting…….something seems to be brewing up, and funny enough, as I’m writing this my husband is getting some information about the defendant from an informant! My life has become SO strange in the past few years…

I’ll update on this as soon as I know anything-

2 Gypsy draws today~

Every morning, by husband and I have the tradition of having our morning tea or coffee while doing our daily draws and also some spreads. Morning  just doesn’t feel right without that ritual 🙂

This morning, both of us had interesting and correlating Gypsy card draws which I’d thought I’d share.

My husband drew:

we both took this literally to mean there would be unexpected Joy from the Legal ending…..’death to the legal’. Another interpretation could be that the Judge is bringing it to an end, but that wouldn’t bring on Unexpected Joy because we know he will be ending it if we do go back to court on March 5!

So I take this to mean that there is a surprise ending to the legal that makes us very happy –

I drew these 3 cards:

We have both looked at the Loss card as representing the “Loss” that we have endured, the wrong-doings around this legal battle. It is the perfect card to depict how we feel as well.

So here we have a Gift (!) coming concerning that Loss. It’s not something that is ordered by a Judge, but something coming out of the blue; and this again leads us to Unexpected Joy. There is something being offered around this that we are not expecting, and turns out really well.

I can’t help but to read these two draws as hinting to a settlement out of court as their main meanings.

There is always more than one way to interpret the cards.

Another thought came as I was writing here: Gift/Loss….could show me receiving a gift of something that I had formally lost or had to give up. In the midst of our financial struggles, I sold some things that were very dear to me to keep things together. This draw could also be saying that I’m going to receive something back, and that I’ll be overjoyed by it. (first thoughts, my diamond ring or my sewing machine…….!!! how I miss both!)

I hope my personal draw has both layers of meaning……

Fortune – Visit – Sweetheart

The Fortune card is a sight for sore eyes (literally!). It foretells of a change in circumstances for the better, or literally a change in fortune. Something good is about to happen.

The Visit card comes up when there are discussions, or meetings. Maybe I’m going to be the one (Sweetheart) to receive a phone call with good news. The Visit card can also represent a short period of time, so possibly this positive change is literally almost to my door.

This would mean more than I can say 🙂 it’s been a challenging time. I know that once this comes to pass, I will forever be changed. What I’ve been through has tempered me into something different, a person with different priorities. I will never take for granted any good fortune that comes my way!

Kipper and Gypsy draws on my Birthday

It has been a bit of a stressful time here in my household. One child leaving for college, and the other unable to go at the last moment. I have had to back away from blogging to deal with everything, sadly.

Saturday, was my 50th birthday…where the heck has all the time gone??? lol I just turned 40 in my head! oh well. It is my hope and my intent that this is the year of some real positive life changes.

On my birthday, I drew these Kipper cards:

d0245835d0245807d0245824

and

WidowerLetterSweetheart

 

The first one, shows a letter/email communication coming from someone who isn’t trustworthy.

The second one shows a man from my past communicating with me.

Ironically, my ex-husband has been showing up as a Thief in the Kipper, and as Nemico in the Sibilla, which is not the way I would have portrayed him consciously–they began showing up just before it became known that he hadn’t lived up to our divorce agreement concerning life insurance. I was shocked, and had to re-evaluate how I perceived him.

We have not been on talking terms since June, when he stood up his youngest daughter on her graduation day!

I found it hard to believe that I would be hearing from him, but sure enough, I received an e-birthday card in my emails later that day. We’ve known each other since high school, alot of water under the bridge:) Strange, but I was kind of touched to receive that card, even though he’s been a pain recently….

Gyspy draws-

It’s amazing to me that just when all seems to about to turn Golden, that all Hell breaks loose. Have you ever found that to be true?

I had been having fantastic readings showing all the positive changes, and then one day recently, I had a slew of pretty upsetting draws. I had a hunch that it had to do with a  blowout with my partner, but hoped I was wrong. Two of the Gypsy card draws are below to show an example, and what I learned about these cards.

JealousyWidowerLover

and the other being:

AngerWidowerLetter

I had entertained the thought that these were referring to my ex-husband. I have often thought that there is resentment and jealousy at how my life went forward after I split from him. I know that he is jealous of my mate. So with the brewing legal arguement coming over a 10 year old divorce settlement (!!) I thought that maybe I was going to get a doozy of a letter from him. But I was wrong in my assumptions.

The Widower wasn’t a man from my past, but rather my present mate stewing over some past ‘issues’.

Jealousy did indeed rear it’s ugly head, and it had to do with past hurts and resentments. So in the first draw, the Widower/Lover was all about him.

The Second draw also was about my husband, being angry over a past issue and writing me a not so nice letter to vent his frustrations!

Why is it that the not so nice readings come about so much more quickly than the hopeful/nice ones????? I’d say in my case, that that statement is about 95% true!

Thankfully, there have been some soothing drawings since 🙂 and the air has cleared. I’m ready for the golden draws now!
