A busy, frantic time!

Hope those in Canada had a wonderful time yesterday…Happy Canada Day 🙂 Being an American who’s become a Canadian citizen, I get to enjoy a week of festivities every July! lol

I’ve been absent from blogging due to moving house over the last 2 weeks. We are happy to be ensconced in a lake house for the next 6 months…oh the peace….

My cards showed the move a month or two before we knew we’d have to vacate the other condo!

I wanted to share a series of draws that I’ve had over the time we moved, starting with:

I am the woman, and what surrounds me is the scythe and mice. This could have indicated stressful decisions (which during the move there definitely were) but I was fascinated to discover that it can also mean ‘breaking down’.

I’m a very steady, emotionally solid person 99.9% of the time – I’ve been through trials that would break a lot of people, and didn’t me. During this move though, there was an altercation between my mate and I that set me back to the Stone Age. I didn’t know which way was up! I had been working my butt off to clean the condo that we’d vacated  and was exhausted, only to return to someone who was bent on picking a fight. You know the kind, no matter what you do or say, it’s not going to matter?

It went so far, that I completely lost it and wept on a bed for hours and hours. We didn’t talk for 24 hours, and the next day, he was conciliatory.

So Scythe/Mice described what happened to me perfectly, although I never would have guessed it prior to it happening. I hope you never find yourself with that card combination meaning this! because it’s awful!…..’stressful decisions’ I would have much preferred for a meaning!

A day later, after efforts to bring back normalcy, my husband drew these 3 cards as part of bigger spread:

The Sun and Storks hints at positive improvements. The Birds can represent a couple.

The combinations of Storks/Birds can mean progress in a relationship or improved intimacy.

I was very relieved to see these cards! We were feeling much closer and healing our rift by this point, and it was just darn nice to see in his cards that he was feeling better too.

Stress is a real killer!

This morning’s Lenormand draw –

Well, the cards have been hinting at it for awhile, but I chose to ignore it. I drew these cards this morning, and exclaimed “oh crap” I think we ARE going to have to move!

I knew we were going to move eventually, like Sept. but not in 28 days!

We got a call from the landlady who lives in another province. She had been waffling back and forth about possibly selling the property. She also could get large rents per week, as a holiday rental.

Unfortunately for us, there is someone who has a bit of influence here who got annoyed with my husband. He complained (to her) about her leaving her dogs out unattended and letting them bark. Their favorite place happens to be outside our kitchen window! Now I’m a real dog lover, I’ve had them all my life – but I’ve always been very sensitive to making sure that my dogs were good neighbors.

Literally only a few days after he complained, we hear from our landlady that she received a few emails saying that he had accessed her other property and had moved furniture around – 1) we didn’t know which other unit was hers and 2) we would have no way to enter that property! nor would we.

She didn’t believe the email, but used it as an excuse to not to have to renew our lease. So there’s the Snake around our home – someone up to no good/ trouble around our residence; with the result being that we’re being forced to move. In all my years on the planet, I’ve never had to deal with something so outrageous (and for me, personally hurtful).

I’ve had other readings that show tremendous luck and fortunate synchronicities around me, and being happy about moving – so we’ll see! I’m doing my best to trust that the Universe has something better in store for me 😀  If I’m totally honest, there are things about living here that neither of us really liked, but it was convenient for my husband’s flight school training. I’m just going to have to surrender on this….

Good Old Lenormand :)

A week ago, I started to have terrible problems with a back molar. A chunk of it had fallen off and the nerve became exposed…painful! I got into the dentist and they thought they could save the tooth . After A LOT of novocaine (it always takes me more than the average person) and a big bill to match, I walked out with a temp crown and a numb mouth.

As the days passed, my mouth and tooth didn’t improve though. My jaw swelled up so much that I couldn’t close my mouth properly, and I couldn’t eat. The pain was excruciating even with the strong pain meds 😦  I was rushed back in, and the dentist said he had never seen swelling like that before (Ha! leave it to me, as always!)

He gave me a prescription for it and we all hoped it would get better.

Now, after more days of waiting…finally the swelling is going down! The antibiotics seem to be saving the day 🙂

I drew these cards the day I went back to the dentist, without giving much thought to them.

Tree combined with Letter can have the meaning of prescriptions, and that wasn’t on my radar when I drew these cards. The final card, key, brings a resolution to a problem.

So these 3 cards were telling me that a prescription would solve the health problem I was having.

It seems to be doing just that! although I’m still not able to eat very much – a forced diet, yuck! lol

I must admit though, I dread going back for the fitting of the permanent crown after all of this…..

Now, if only I could get my graphics to post the way they look before I publish! Gotta love WordPress 😦

Daily draws as themes for bigger issues…

I’ve been having some haunting dreams; dreams of someone I know from the past, dying. Since I was little, I’ve had many ‘correct’ death dreams, and this feels like one of them. What has been creepy, (but confirmation) is that I also keep getting messages in the cards of a death, so I’m holding my breath.

The Gypsy has been the most direct with draws like

MessageDeathSweetheart  or

WidowerMaladyDeath 

or the playing cards, here’s an example:

200px-Playing_card_spade_A_svg_small1200px-Playing_card_spade_9_svg_small200px-Playing_card_spade_10_svg_smallks1

No matter what the card system, the card for a certain man I know from the past is represented, and news of a passing connected with him.

I’m writing this early, without my notebook, so I’m trying to remember examples that I’ve written down….

I do remember 03 Ship20 Garden08 Coffin(ship-garden-coffin) it was connected with other cards like the Lily and the Cross…. Garden+Coffin could mean funeral, and the ship either showing that I will be travelling to one, or that that the funeral is quite far away.

At any rate, I thought I’d better once more document that something is brewing up, both in the cards and in my dreams, although not a happy thing.

On the flip side, I continue to draw lots of draws around the legal (UGGHH!) which comes to a head next week; and they show a payout on the settlement……and lots of draws around business (money is due in today)

 What I thought would be daily draws, very often times seem to be more weekly draws!!! These 3 themes show up over and over. If there is a spat between hubby and wife, that’s an hourly draw! lol

Has anyone else noticed their dailies stretching out, being more of a message on a bigger theme, rather than a small daily message? It might stay that way until these bigger issues are resolved, frankly. Since they’re the most dominant things on my mind, that’s what I continually draw about……..I am so ready for new themes!!!! LOL

Showing a death-

Hi everyone,

I’ve been offline having been awfully busy with my youngest daughter’s high school graduation. I was so proud. She made High Honors for the year, and only 30 in her graduating class managed that 🙂 It’s hard to believe that my baby will be starting University in the Fall.

My last draw has not come to pass yet….it’s been 3 days? absolutely nothing comes close to being interpreted as Merriment-Unexpected Joy-Fortune….not even my daughter’s graduation! So I’m still puzzled as to what that’s talking about.

I continued to read cards and drew these 3 playing cards the morning of Thursday, June 26.

Ace of Spadesjack-spadesKingSpades

I thought that it might be describing my ex-husband. He’s always the King of Spades or the King of Swords. The Jack next to him describes him as a man from my past, but also the Jack of Spades shows up for me to describe someone who is shifty, or lying. This is true for him!

The Ace of Spades, can denote a worried mind, troubles; so my first inclination was to say that he was worrying about what he did, and it was causing him some grief.

Then another thought crossed my mind. I said, hesitantly, I wonder if this could mean a sudden death of a man?The Ace of Spades with 2 other spades can sometimes predict a passing. Seeing the Jack of Spades is similar to the Page of Swords in the tarot; which can mean sudden news.

We both just looked at each other, wondering if someone we knew was going to pass…

My husband during the same card reading time, drew these 3 lenormand cards:

06clouds08coffin03boat

I had taken this to mean, mysterious death…or questions/doubt around a passing. This all happening at a distance from us.

Neither of us had a clue and just noted it down for June 26th.

It was later that day that the news media announced that Michael Jackson had passed away. There have been growing questions about prescription medications that he was taking as well.

It wasn’t until late that night, that it dawned on me that those two draws were talking about a news event and not something within our family. His passing was so strong in the ethers, that our cards even picked it up.

No matter what you thought about the controversy surrounding his life, he was a brilliant entertainer and we were deeply saddened by the news.

Pages of Shustah: first look

I’ve just received the Pages of Shustah from a friend. It’s a little known deck, created by Ann Master and Cecil North in the 70’s. I was initially intrigued with the artwork, and then started reading a few people’s experiences with the cards and I knew that one day I would have to have them too.

I broke down, and ordered the book that was written for the deck, and look forward to exploring them deeper.

Madame Seaqueen and my friend, Kapherus have both written about them, and there’s a wonderful blog written by Rev. Ken Foor dedicated solely to Shustah.

As an introduction, I thought I’d just share a couple of immediate thoughts about them, now that I have them in front of me.

The deck consists of 70 cards, made up of 5 suits.

I was surprised to see common cards in this deck that remind me of the tarot, and also of the Lenormand.

blue-3-little-fish34-fish1 AND     blue-9-major-wish124-heart

green-2-guardian-dog18-dog A ND      red-2-foxes14-fox

red-8-serpent7-snake AND      red-7-whip11-whips

There are a few more corresponding to the Lenormand. Then I noticed that there are 4 Knights and 4 Pages as in the Tarot:

blue-12-divine-horse148

The Divine Horse is shown with Water, so he reminds me of the The Knight of Cups; in the tarot it’s associated with feelings and intuition and Water.

green-12-magical-horse34

The Magical Horse is shown running along, this I associated with the Knight of Wands. It’s a card of movement & action.

red-12-pale-horse62

The Pale Horse is bolting swiftly, galloping; as you can see with his mane. At least that’s my first assessment! Otherwise he is rearing suddenly- one’s taken by surprise and things happen suddenly. For this reason, I would compare him to the   (Knight of Swords) It looks like the same kind of energy to me.

yellow-12-victory-horse76

The Victory Horse reminds me of the Knight of Pentacles. Both are standing still, both have the “gold” in common. I might be wrong with these correlations, but they certainly jumped out at me.

blue-11-harmonizing-page47
The pages look like they correspond, as the page of cups is the sensitive, artistic sweet one.

red-11-spying-page61

And the red Page looks as though he/she is holding a sword!

green-11-playful-page33

The green Page, looks like it could correspond to the Page of Wands, but the 2 swirling coils pictured reminds me of the 2 of Pentacles….of needing to balance more than one thing! so I’m not really sure here!

yellow-11-breakthrough-page75

The gold Page has something to do with effort and perseverance, so as the Page of Pentacles is also the student card, working towards something, they might match……… These last 2 I don’t feel convinced of though.

I don’t have the book to look deeply into meanings yet, so they’re meanings might not match at all! but I was intrigued at the familiar symbols in the deck.

There is also a Ring card,and a Paths card like the Lenormand! The artwork is just beautiful- they look like wood carving prints!

I look forward to delving into these…………

Multiple draws pointing to a message & and a Bird hitting the Window!!

My husband had a few cards in a number of readings that seemed to refer to the same thing. It didn’t matter what kind of deck he used, it still seemed to point to the same thing, and it had him really worried.

I didn’t write them all down, but here are a few examples:

As part of a bigger Lenormand spread, he had these 3 cards in the present position:

06clouds29female05tree

* I add this example after publishing, as I had forgotten it! He thought he was reading about someone else- and I blurted out there’s confusion around a woman’s health. (one more reference to his daughter, but we didn’t catch it at the time)

d0245820d0245831d0245813

House-Short Illness- Rich Good Lord: In this instance,  I had thought that the Rich Good Lord was referring to someone else – as my husband usually shows up as the Good Lord or Principle Man.

This draw refers to an illness in the family, connected somehow to the R. Good Lord.

d0245810d0245812d02458312

He drew this the other day, and became quite worried. He didn’t have long to wait to see what it was about either! We received a phone call from his daughter out in Vancouver, that she was really ill again, and had spent the day in the hospital- she’s experiencing muscle weakness in all limbs and pins and needles in them. This gal doesn’t call unless things are really bad!

My husband was on a plane the next day (yesterday) to fly across country and be by her side. I haven’t heard from him yet, to know what’s happening.

Around the same time of these draws, I drew the following cards:

d02458101d02458313d0245806

I remember commenting to my husband, that that didn’t make much sense, because his daughter wouldn’t be considered “The Great Dame”! she’s too young!

Lo and behold! I dropped my husband off at the airport last night, came back and made dinner for my daughter and me, and by 8pm felt really sick! I was so worn out from all the hoopla, that I’ve come down with a really nasty sinus cold and sore/constricted throat. Instead of writing my blog entries last night, I ended up in bed!

I’m not faring too much better today either 😦  I’ve run my errands, and plan on laying very low today….it’s vitamin C time and ColdFX as my companions. Sigh* It never fails, I finally have a quiet moment to myself, and now I’m sick! lol

Tuesday morning, I drew these 3 cards from the Kipper:

d02458314d0245824d0245821

I had secretly thought (but didn’t voice) that these cards reflected how I was feeling….which is a little hard to admit.

I thought they were showing my feelings that her illness/drama was “robbing” from my family affairs, my private inner sanctum…I can’t quite find the words for this, and it just doesn’t sound nice! Not only was the situation taking my husband away at a very critical time for us personally, but it was costing us airfare money that we just didn’t have.

Don’t get me wrong, I know she needed her Dad, and there was no way he wasn’t going to go– nor would I have suggested anything else! if it were one of my kids I’d do exactly the same thing…. I just think that the cards were reflecting that inward feeling.

Having said that- finding myself ALSO now sick, I can say that this darn bug that I seem to have, is now robbing me of my inner/personal time – I don’t feel well enough to do the things I wanted to do!!  So these 3 cards were a double whammy!!!  LOL

As we started having these cards appear over the past week, something else happened that set us both on alert.

We were sitting in our respective offices, off the living room, when we both were startled by a huge bang against the window. We both ran out, and found a beautiful bird laying on our deck, breathing heavily. Both of us felt heartsick, both for the bird and for the message it might be bringing.

In the past, when we have had birds hit our window so hard like that, it has been similar in meaning to the Tower card in the Tarot. It has almost always meant that we were about to get a shock- and most often, not a pleasant one.

It happened 7 years ago, just before my mother had a devastating stroke & subsequently died; and it’s happened before we got word that someone was ill, or before someone tried to serve my husband with legal papers! We just know, to “take note” when both of us get that particular message from a bird. Years ago, when I was helping my mother move out of her home, and move in with my former husband and me, I had crows hitting every window of the house for hours!All I could think of was the movie “Birds”! it was very very creepy, and I think a warning (which I didn’t heed) of the wrongness of the move in with us! lol

I took time out to Google about the spiritual meaning of birds hitting the window, and found a fascinating blog with many people writing in, on their experiences with birds! Well worth a read, if you’ve ever experienced the phenonomen.

Sure enough, just a few days later we found out that a loved one is  ill…..

I’m a firm believer in signs and synchronicities!
