Back in the Saddle Again…..(I hope!)

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 Image 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 Image traditionally is the card of disappointment, illness and restriction. The Image 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 Image is about getting one’s fondest wish, similar to the 9 Hearts/Cups or showing the thoughts of the Image, 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 🙂

Goethe Playing cards~

These are images from the GOETHE playing card deck. I did a search to see where they might be ordered, and I found them at Amazon.co.uk. I’d love to have a physical set of these one day! 🙂  (You can click on each image to see them in better detail).

3 of Hearts – Queen of Hearts – Ace of Diamonds

I drew these on Monday, while I was still in quite a bit of turmoil with my significant other. I felt really low, and was surprised to see this draw. (I didn’t explain it to him either! lol some things are better left unsaid!)

The 3 of Hearts shows expanding love, things growing emotionally, or a celebration.

The Queen of Hearts represents me 🙂

And the Ace of Diamonds has a few meanings: it could refer to a gift, a ring, or a message of some sort. Now I also connect it to the Ace of Pentacles in the tarot; so I could also guess the beginning of a financial venture, or money being offered etc.

At the time of the draw, we were hardly acknowledging each other, the anger was so great; and in a fit we had taken our rings off! talk about tumultous! I had quickly put mine back on the next morning, having pivoted in my perspective, but he hadn’t…….and it hurt to see the bare finger!

I smiled when I saw this draw, as I immediately got the message that love would return and expand, and the wedding ring would be back 🙂

Sure enough, this morning all is well – we made up, and the ring re-appeared. So the cards were a reassurance that all would get better:)

(we aren’t normally so intense!! thank goodness)

Now on another level this could be saying that we’ll be celebrating shortly because of a financial counter-offer from the defendant in my husband’s court case. That would fit too – but my immediate thought was of a personal one, and it happened within 24 hours, so that’s definitely a match…

Playing cards come true within hours!

As part of a bigger general spread with the playing cards, in the position of what is unknown I drew these 4 cards:

I said to my husband, “this doesn’t look good! we’re the King and Queen of Hearts….”
There is grief or frustration connected to the King of Diamonds that somehow affects us. I hope it’s isn’t “D” our financial trader friend…

I then took a step back and said, “well, this could be a banker type or someone concerned with finances giving us hassle or grief..”  we both rolled our eyes and hoped that wasn’t the case.

Sure enough, a few hours later, there was a phone call from one of the credit card companies. Usually the people are very decent and polite, but this time my husband got someone who was obnoxious. He got so pissed off at him, that he demanded a supervisor and hung up until they could find one for him to talk to!

These people call every few days, “gently” reminding us that we’re overdue with a payment (Like we didn’t know!)- but usually they’re polite! this one really got my mate’s temper riled.

So remember, King of Diamonds….banker type, credit card/finance guy….  (@!$#%8#)
