Using Tarot cards or Lenormand cards to answer health questions can be a little dicey. First, if the question impacts you personally, you might inadvertently project your greatest fears or hopes into the reading which could possibly spiral you into a panic attack (!!) or lull you into a false sense of security. Second, if you’re reading for another person and you are not a doctor or a medical professional, you could be putting yourself at legal risk.
While I usually back off from health questions, lately I’ve been concerned about my elderly mother who suffers from dementia and congestive heart failure. Historically, the month of February is not kind to her, adding to my feelings of apprehension. This morning, however, feeling fairly objective, I decided on the spur of the moment to inquire about her health.
Q: How will my Mother be doing health-wise over the next three months or so?
My first thought upon seeing these cards was “How literal!” My mother’s (Bear) aging issues (Lilies) remain constant (Anchor). She continues to suffer from anxiety (Mice) and dementia (Clouds).
As I’ve mentioned in many previous posts, when I cast a Lenormand Line of 5, I usually also pull the base card (bottom card of the shuffled deck) because I’ve found it almost always provides helpful additional information.
Here, 22 Crossroads as the base card indeed brings some useful information into play. Crossroads can indicate multiples. Lying under Mice with Clouds to the right of Mice, it seems to be emphasizing my mother’s multiple fears and/or anxieties. This made me feel sad, but not surprised.
From a health standpoint, Crossroads can also refer to arteries, veins and the circulatory system in general. Mice as deterioration and Crossroads as the circulatory system certainly could be interpreted as congestive heart failure and the cards could simply be suggesting that this issue continues to be a factor in my mother’s declining health. With 35 Anchor ending the Lenormand Line of 5, however, I think my mother’s health will remain stable during the time period in question.
