This morning I pulled the following cards for my daily draw:
Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand (c) 2008 Konigsfurt-Urania
At first I thought the cards were giving a message about my son’s upcoming online interview with one of the grad schools he applied to. The cards seemed to suggest that the University (Book + Tower) would provide him with a reassuring update (Rider + Anchor) after the online interview ended (Coffin + Birds).
But then it occurred to me, maybe the cards were commenting on something else entirely…
My son is an emerging artist. His work has been featured in several local and regional art shows over the past couple years. Last week, to his shock, he discovered a local business had stolen one of his images (probably copied it from his blog) and used it in an advertisement poster which they then placed in their front window.
Needless to say, my son was not happy.
My son’s girlfriend’s mother works for a law firm and he asked her to discuss the situation with one of the attorneys. My son doesn’t want to start a lawsuit. He just wants the company to take down the artwork they stole from him.
In that light, I read the cards as follows:
The law firm (Book + Tower) provides reassuring news (Rider + Anchor) about ending (Coffin) the advertising (Birds).
It could take a few days before either of these situations resolve. The online interview with the University is Thursday, and it may take a few days after that to hear back from them. It also may take a few days before the law firm responds to my son’s request for advice.
I’ll update once I know the results.
Update 2/28/2014: The cards began manifesting quickly. By late afternoon on the day of the draw, I learned the lawyers (Book + Tower) were all over the “stolen art” situation like crows on roadkill. They told my son (via his girlfriend’s Mom) they would draft a cease and desist letter (Rider + Anchor as encouraging or supportive news) instructing the business owner to take down the advertising (Coffin + Birds).
My son received the draft and the letter was mailed out to the business owner today.
As far as the interview with the University (Book + Tower), my son received an encouraging email (Rider + Anchor as supportive feedback) after the interview ended (Coffin + Birds).
Looks like the cards killed (Coffin) two birds (Birds) with one stone — so to speak!
