When using Lenormand cards for my daily draw, I often throw a Line of 5, then select the base card (bottom card of the shuffled deck) for clarification or additional information.
This morning, after shuffling while asking the Lenormand cards to show me something that would happen today or something I needed to know, I inadvertently selected six cards for my Line of 5:
Blaue Eule (Blue Owl) Lenormand (c) 2008 Konigsfurt-Urania
At first, I was unsure of how I wanted to deal with this unexpected situation. Should I disregard the mistakenly drawn 6th card? Use it as the base card showing clarification or additional information (even though I’d already peeked at the bottom card)?
I left it in the line up for several minutes as I contemplated what the cards might be telling me, keeping in mind the base card I had peeked at, 8 Coffin…
Basically, I got the sense today would be a day of procrastination (Mountain + Clouds) with no clear focus (Clouds + Paths) and passing weather conditions (Clouds) — it was cloudy and rainy when I pulled my cards — and that maybe I’d go back to bed for a couple hours (8 Coffin as clarification or additional information), bored outta my mind (Tree).
I would probably lay low (Coffin), not much would get done (Mountain + Clouds + Paths), and I’d experience a slow, boring (Tree) day, at least until later in the afternoon when I would leave the house to pick up Grandson #1 (Child) from school (Book).
Note: After realizing the first three cards (Mountain + Clouds + Paths) went together, making the 4th card 5 Tree (slow, boring day) the central card of the spread, the reading quickly clarified and I had to “tip my hat” to my subconscious, which surely had orchestrated the selection of six, rather than five, cards.
What Actually Happened:
As the cards had suggested, the day started out slow and boring (Tree) and I didn’t accomplish much of anything (Mountain + Clouds + Paths). Somehow, however, I managed to stay out of bed (Coffin)!
Around lunchtime, the boredom (Tree) ended (Coffin) when I happened to notice a new book I’d purchased but hadn’t gotten around to reading laying on the kitchen table under a pile of paperwork. As I picked it up, I instantly realized Child + Book in the morning draw was completely literal: new (Child) book (Book). Also, as planned, I picked up my grandson (Child) from school (Book) later in the day, so the last two cards of what was supposed to be a five card draw wound up pulling double duty.
