Weekly Tea Leaf Reading –

(If you’re not familiar with these cards, please click on the image for a larger view of them )

After the morning’s phone call from the landlady and spending the day stewing, I started throwing out things and getting organized! (which is what I always do when I get stressed, never mind have to move!!)

During a break, I pulled out my friends, the Tea Leaf cards, for some insight. They are turning out to be amazingly accurate for me – I am really bonding with this deck!

I drew: Wedge, Clouds, Rainbow, Candle.

The first card down, Wedge, describes a trouble maker, someone trying to come between me and someone or something I want. They didn’t succeed in coming between me and the landlady – I’m pretty sure that she just wanted to have the freedom to charge more rent during the summer season – but they did manage to succeed in having us have to move out. Not nice!! and this person looks like the sweetest little old lady! watch out – appearances can definitely be deceiving!

With the 2nd card,Ā Clouds, assures me that this is just a temporary problem, nothing too major.

The 3rd card, is once again the Rainbow ( I had that recently in another reading). It promises that the worst of a situation is over.
Now interestingly, I also caught a commercial today on television, that I had never seen before. I couldn’t tell you what they were selling (!LOL) but it showed all these people dressed up like Dorothy of “Wizard of Oz” fame; and they were all dancing at the end of a rainbow on the Yellow Brick Road!! The title that kept flashing was “Over the Rainbow” šŸ˜€

I’ve written before about the song “Somewhere over the Rainbow” and it’s meaning to me, so funnily, this gave me a little bit of comfort. It felt as though my loved ones in Spirit were trying to let me know that it was all going to be OK so don’t get too upset. The other thing IĀ  noticed is that Dorothy ended up very happily dancing on the Yellow Brick Road…the road of gold…

And the 4th card, the Candle, reassures me that I will be shown the way. Looking closely at the card, it also is surrounded by a wreath of Lilies. For me, personally, that represents Spirit. I spent years going to Spiritualist Church in North Yorkshire,England, participating in Psychic development circles etc. so this is a strong image for me. The fact that the candle is encircled with Lilies made me think that not only am I being protected and embraced by Spirit at this time, but that they will be guiding me through this difficult period.

So although, I’m upset and not just a little bit miffed at what’s transpired, I believe that there will be a silver lining to all of this.

If I wanted to stretch a little further, I would also mention that my employer, shows up in the Lenormand as the Lily card – he’s older with gray hair. It may be that he is also connected in helping in this matter.. we’ll see.

********Update: these cards were right on the money! I really am ‘Over the Rainbow’! Spent a day scouring listings and feeling really glum because the rents in this area go through the roof in the summer, I stumbled upon a listing for a furnished home out in the country amongst the vineyards, that’s a close commute for work and flight training. It’s quiet, in an artist community, and on the lake! HEAVEN!! did I mention quiet?? and a private beach??????? We went to view it today, in the pouring rain, and knew that this house was waiting for us to find it. So goodbye noisy condo with the quirky neighbors! I’m headed to paradise for the 1st of July šŸ˜€Ā  Woo Hoo!! I love these cards….

Most recent Tea leaf Card draw –

It may be Thursday, but I missed my weekly draw this past weekend because of company staying with us. I didn’t want to wait till the weekend soooo….!!

I’m grateful to see the Rainbow as my first card, and the meaning that “the most difficult part of a situation is over”.
When I personally see rainbows, I always feel it’s a gift from Spirit and a good omen.

The following 3 cards describe what the situation has been:

Quill – get back to basics

Hills – Obstacles to overcome

Boot – Increase your efforts if you want to achieve your goals.

My family went through a period of great financial difficulty over the past 3 years. We were forced to sell our house and many of our belongings. It was difficult and heart wrenching, but also a time of obtaining a new perspective on Life and learning the lesson of ‘Enjoy the Journey’ and “Stay Present”.

Past norms went out the window, and living as frugally as we possibly could became the new norm for us. We took a leap of faith and moved across Canada, leaving all our belongings in storage, while we tried to forge a new life. Our things are still in storage 2 years later (!ugh) but our experiences have been rich. I became a modern day gypsy in many ways!

The Universe lined us up with some very interesting people – we found jobs, and are slowly re-building our lives. It’s been very hard, but I’ve really taken to heart about getting back to basics. I’ve since learned how to can foods, dehydrate, etc. and have built a food storage supply. Having gone through my own mini-“depression era” I don’t want to ever find myself without the basics. I’ve learned how to make my own laundry soap for a fraction of the cost of store-bought, and have discovered how wonderful White Vinegar is for cleaning and other uses! I’ve made the most of being frugal, and wouldn’t trade the knowledge. My grandmother and mother would be proud šŸ™‚ ā¤

But, how nice it is to see the Rainbow card in front of this situation! The most difficult part is over…. I like that. Now, if only I can get my belongings over to this side of Canada and find a home to put them in!! All in due time….

What’s interesting about this reading to me, is that my Higher Self or my guides wanted me to know that things will improve. This wasn’t a mundane reading about some event or person, but a sweet message of encouragement. That means a lot.

I don’t know why it took me so long to dedicate time to these wonderful cards, but I’m so glad I’ve rediscovered them now. I really like their energy.

Ironically, if I didn’t see any words on these cards, they would still have a special meaning to me. My grandfather always had me sing “Somewhere over the Rainbow” when I was little – lol – always found them of special import.

The Quill for me is writing – (my father was a journalist and was writing his first novel when he died) I have always written stories, songs, poetry…

The Hills remind me of the Hill Country in Texas where my grandfather had the family ranch. I grew up there, riding horses and making pictures out of the clouds šŸ™‚

and the Boot, was our regular attire! but it’s a strong symbol for my Dad.

I’ve been seriously contemplating taking a course on writing a novel – these symbols could be a message from my Dad that that would be a good thing for me to do! (Thanks Dad)

Always remember, there are many ways to combine symbols – what you are drawn to is appropriate for you. There can be more than one level of reading messages in the cards of any deck. Play with them and see what you come up with!
