Drama Monitoring with Lenormand Cards or Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

‘Drama monitoring’ is a technique you can employ that will help take your Lenormand and/or Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards card reading skills to the next level. It’s an easy, fascinating, intuitive, and powerful way to learn how the cards want to speak to you.

So, you ask, What exactly  is ‘drama monitoring’?

Drama monitoring is the intentional casting of card draws for the purpose of observing or monitoring regular episodes of drama occurring in your personal universe.

 

The only difference between ‘drama monitoring’ and asking the Lenormand, Tarot, or Gypsy Witch cards typical questions such as “How will my day go?” is your intention to ‘drama monitor’ a person or situation before you shuffle and draw the cards. I’ll show you examples further down in this post, but first a couple of caveats:

  1. Do not ‘drama monitor’ yourself!!!! This is because it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to remain objective when you are personally going through a situation or circumstance that is impacting you emotionally.
  2. Do not ‘drama monitor’ your husband/ wife/ boyfriend/ girlfriend/ partner/ child/ lover/ parent(s)/ family member. You are way too close to these people. It will be difficult, if not impossible, to remain objective because these people clearly impact your emotional life.
  3. Do not ‘drama monitor’ anyone who “pushes your buttons.” Same reasons as above. You cannot remain objective and your lack of objectivity will skew your readings.

So who or what can you ‘drama monitor’?

  1. The next door neighbors (assuming they don’t push your buttons).
  2. The boss (assuming he or she doesn’t push your buttons).
  3. Drama-prone co-workers (as long as you’re not in the thick of it).
  4. Your favorite daily television soap opera characters.
  5. Your favorite television reality show stars.
  6. Your favorite celebrity/ politician/ musician/ entertainer — anyone in the public eye who you follow regularly on social media.
  7. Anyone or anything that you have contact with at least several times a week, if not daily, as long as you are not emotionally invested in either the person or the outcome.

************************************

Note: If the thought of ‘drama monitoring’ a person you know seems a little too pushy (or nosy) and/or offends your code of ethics, give options 4, 5 or 6 above a try. They work just as well.

Example: Drama Monitoring an Ongoing Situation with Lenormand and Gypsy Witch Cards

Background: a co-worker’s daughter is going through a marital rough patch. You’re sympathetic, but not involved. Hoping to help if you can (as well as to learn more about how your cards speak to you), you decide to ‘drama monitor’ the situation.

First Draw:
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards: 18 Lady (2 of Diamonds) - 6 Coffin (5 of Spades) - 3 House (6 of Hearts) - 29 Mouse (6 of Spades) - 25 Clouds (7 of Spades) - 52 Shepherd (Jack of Spades) http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards: 18 Lady (2 of Diamonds) – 6 Coffin (5 of Spades) – 3 House (6 of Hearts) – 29 Mouse (6 of Spades) – 25 Clouds (7 of Spades) – 52 Shepherd (Jack of Spades)

A woman (LADY) appears to be depressed (COFFIN), worried/ stressed (MOUSE) and confused (CLOUDS) over a domestic (HOUSE) matter. The Base Card (bottom card of the shuffled deck) suggests support is being sought (SHEPHERD), likely from a family member (HOUSE + SHEPHERD). The Gypsy Witch cards accurately mirror and confirm the situation under ‘monitoring.’

Second Draw:

[Note: The second draw was done with Lenormand cards, four days after the first draw. Prior to drawing the cards, it was pre-decided that the central (hinge) card would be “superimposed” onto the House of the Ring, making any card that fell into that central position descriptive of the marriage. Here, we see decisions or choices (CROSSROADS) has “landed” in the the House of the Ring, giving us decisions or choices about marriage.]

The first two cards point to the issues in the marriage that are causing problems. BEAR and SNAKE suggest control issues, including, perhaps, jealousy and/or sexual issues that are factoring into decisions being made about the marriage (CROSSROADS in the House of the Ring). SUN + MICE does not auger well. Instead, it suggests deterioration and eventual loss. It seems that (at the time of this draw) a decision to recommit to the marriage (CROSSROADS in the House of the Ring) will falter after some initial success (SUN + MICE). TREE as the Base Card shows the situation causing the distress is deeply rooted and/or has built up over time, perhaps five months or even five years. Basically, TREE shows that the situation under ‘monitoring’ is not a new development.

Third Draw:

[Note: A subsequent draw using the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards was performed three days after the second draw. It suggested that despite the ongoing marital difficulties, there was hope for recovery. No cards (or houses) were pre-selected.]

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards: 19 Gentleman (2 of Hearts) - 18 Lady (2 of Diamonds) - 15 Letter (King of Diamonds) - 25 Clouds (7 of Spades) - 38 Flames on the Hearth (7 of Diamonds) - 42 Amor (Queen of Spades) http://livingwithcards.com
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards: 19 Gentleman (2 of Hearts) – 18 Lady (2 of Diamonds) – 15 Letter (King of Diamonds) – 25 Clouds (7 of Spades) – 38 Flames on the Hearth (7 of Diamonds) – 42 Amor (Queen of Spades)

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards – U.S. Games Systems, Inc.

The GENTLEMAN and the LADY have their backs to each other, showing they are not seeing eye to eye. LETTER + CLOUDS points to divorce papers, if not a serious lack of communication. However, the spread ends with Gypsy Witch 38 Flames on the Hearth, which, according to the ‘fortune’ inscribed on the card, “…neutralizes the evil of near lying unlucky cards and increases the value of lucky ones.” This suggested that (at the time of the card draw) there may be hope for the marriage, The Base Card, 42 Amor, supports this conclusion, suggesting that despite their problems, love and attraction could still exist between them.

************************************************

The ‘drama monitoring’ card readings clearly show that the co-worker’s daughter is obviously unhappy and that she is confused about what she really wants (or needs).  You might suggest that the daughter hold off on making critical decisions concerning her marriage until she sorts out her feelings. Your input may or may not help the situation, but that is not under your control. The real value here from a cartomantic point of view is that ‘drama monitoring’ has given you a deeper understanding of how the Lenormand and Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards “speak” to you.

 

Summary

A series of ‘drama monitoring’ readings (five altogether) using either Lenormand cards or Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards were done over an approximate two week period to monitor the energies surrounding an ongoing marital issue.

The card readings clearly showed fluctuations in energies producing changeable outcomes, exactly mirroring the subject’s emotional ups and downs during the time period the ‘drama’ was ‘monitored.’

 

 Conclusions

Obviously, I could have included the Fourth and Fifth Draws, but I think the three examples given have probably clarified how the process works. If you decide to try this method, you can continue to ‘drama monitor’ any situation to which you have access until resolution is reached or you lose interest, whichever comes first. The point of ‘drama monitoring’ is not to vicariously participate in someone else’s misfortune. Rather, it is a highly effective and powerful way to strengthen your intuition and improve your card reading skills.

If you prefer, you can use the ‘drama monitoring’ technique with tarot cards. The process is contingent upon the intention to elicit information about the energies surrounding any particular situation, and not upon the particular card system used.

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins

Forensic Cartomancy: Lenormand Cards Discuss Missing Child Diana Alvarez

Here’s a question for you. If you pulled some Lenormand cards to find out whether a missing child was dead or alive and got DOG + BOOK + SCYTHE + CHILD + GARDEN + BIRDS, would you say that child was dead or alive?

I say ‘dead’ and will explain why and how I came to that conclusion further down in this post. But first, I’d like to discuss factors leading up to that particularly grim determination.

 

 

Background

According to news and media reports, Diana Alvarez, a nine year old Fort Myers, Florida child, was discovered missing from her home around 7:00 am on Sunday, May 29, 2016. Over the next several days it became sickeningly clear that a 28 year old male with the initials JG* likely was responsible for the child’s disappearance.

*********************************

*JG had been a tenant at the family’s home, living there and paying rent. When family members noticed that JG appeared to be inappropriately interested in Diana and Diana appeared to be smitten by his attention, they insisted JG move out. This occurred in early May, shortly before the little girl disappeared.

**********************************

As I write this post, the suspect JG is in custody, charged with possession of child pornography. He has not claimed responsibility for the disappearance of Diana Alvarez and has since “lawyered up.” The child is still missing.

The Astrology

I have mentioned before, in this post and this one, that I primarily use forensic horary astrology techniques to discover what has happened in missing persons cases.

Because this is a cartomancy blog and not an astrology blog, I will not go into the blow-by-blow details that I was able to pull from careful analysis of the pertinent charts, other than to say there were numerous indications of kidnap, rape and murder, along with disturbing indications of extreme violence. If you are astrologically oriented, you can get the general idea from my scribbled notes on the “Discovered Missing” chart below.

Sickening, at best.

Based on past experience, it occurred to me that perhaps the Lenormand cards could shed more light on the matter. While the astrology was certainly clear enough, I’ve found the cards can often add another layer that is helpful to understanding the dynamics surrounding these tragic cases.

First I pulled a Lenormand Square of 9 to get the general “lay of the land,” so to speak.

Lenormand Square of 9: Circumstances Surrounding Diana Alvarez Disappearance

Lenormand Square of 9: 3 Ship – 26 Book – 9 Bouquet – 18 Dog – 22 Crossroads – 7 Snake – 13 Child – 24 Heart – 15 Bear

Mlle Lenormand Cartomancy Deck of 36 Cards

 

Note: None of these cards were preselected.

Diana is 13 Child, JG is 18 Dog. We can easily see they went on a road trip (SHIP + ROADS) that ended badly (SHIP + ROADS + SNAKE). Diana has a crush on JG (DOG + HEART), but JG has told her they have to keep it a secret (BOOK + HEART) from Mama and/or Papa (BEAR). JG gives Diana gifts (BOUQUET) or perhaps promises (HEART) to give them. Diana trusts JG (DOG).

22 Crossroads with 3 Ship + 26 Book suggests a “secret journey.” She should expect something wonderful and pleasant (BOUQUET). Perhaps the roads they traveled were wind-y,  or full of curves, or a round-about route (ROADS + SNAKE). Perhaps a bear or two (BEAR) had been spotted there. Maybe he told her they were going to stop to see the bears (BEAR) on their way to the “big surprise” (BOUQUET) he had for her.

She was so incredibly trusting (CHILD + HEART). Most nine year olds are.

****************************************

 

While the Lenormand Square of 9 was descriptive enough, it did not seem to address the critical question. So, taking a breath, I thoroughly re-mixed the cards and asked:

Q: Diana Alvarez Dead or Alive?

Lenormand Line of 5 with Base Card: 18 Dog – 26 Book – 10 Scythe – 13 Child – 20 Garden – 12 Birds

Mlle Lenormand Cartomancy Deck of 36 Cards

Following my normal procedure, I selected the base card (bottom card of the shuffled deck), placing it directly below the central (hinge) card of the Lenormand Line of 5. I have repeatedly found this extra card adds value to the reading, either by modifying one or more of the three cards above it, supplying additional information or clarification, and/or by pointing out a factor that should be considered.

DOG, BOOK and CHILD once again appeared in this second card draw. The repetition of cards in spite of vigorous shuffling and re-mixing in between draws did not go unnoticed. JG is the DOG (trusted friend, loved one, typically male); Diana is the CHILD and the BOOK is the secret between them.

The Line of 5 is quite straightforward. It suggests that the secret friend (DOG + BOOK) “cut” her down/ committed a violent act against her (SCYTHE + CHILD), then buried or placed her in a lushly vegetated area such as a park or nature preserve (GARDEN).

As a modifier to SCYTHE, BIRDS (associated with the throat and/or vocal chords) suggests “air.” Combining the base card with the hinge cardSCYTHE can be a “cut” or an “interruption” and BIRDS breathing and/or the breathing process (air). Did JG “cut” (SCYTHE) her throat (BIRDS)? Did he “interrupt” or “cut off” (SCYTHE) her airways (BIRDS)?  …. In other words, did he strangle or suffocate her so she wouldn’t (couldn’t) “talk” (SCYTHE + BIRDS)?

Conclusions

The forensic horary astrology charts suggest that Diana Alvarez is no longer with us. The Lenormand cards appear to agree. Both approaches suggest strangulation/ asphyxiation (with possible testimonies for slashing of the throat) as cause of death.

The Lenormand cards suggest Diana may be found in a garden, park, nature preserve or other area where there is lush vegetation (GARDEN). With BIRDS as the base card in the Line of 5, perhaps the authorities will have some success getting the perp to “talk.”

We can only hope…

Note regarding my process: I will only examine a Missing Persons case when I have a reasonable understanding of the circumstances surrounding the disappearance, a reliable timeline including the date, time and place the person was either discovered missing and/or reported missing to police, and the victim’s birth data. The birth data of the perpetrator/ prime suspect is helpful as well. I prefer to work with current cases.

Unlike psychics (no disrespect intended), I do not base my findings on dreams or visions, nor do I pull information out of the ethers (or my butt, depending on your level of skepticism). Rather, I read the ‘star language‘ contained in the forensic astrology charts that I examine and interpret it to the best of my ability.

The first step (after familiarizing myself with a case) is always the casting and examination of the relevant astrology chart(s), which are carefully compared to the victim’s natal chart before drawing any conclusions. Once that’s done, I may or may not throw a card spread or two to gain additional information, as I did here. Yes, intuition is involved. So is common sense. Everybody has both of these faculties to some degree or another.

 


Lenormand Card Meanings & Combinations: 7 Snake

As you work with Lenormand cards in your daily draws, you begin to experience patterns in which the cards personally speak to you. This happens with Tarot cards as well, or any other cartomancy system with which you work regularly.

It’s always a good idea to make notations in a personal journal as to what the card combinations mean to you. This helps you build your own cartomancy vocabulary and assists you in becoming a more accomplished card reader.

The Lenormand card, 7 Snake, is an interesting card that has a generally negative meaning.

Lenormand 7 Snake meanings and combinations http://livingwithcards.com
Lenormand 7 Snake

 

By itself, it warns you “something is up,” likely in an unpleasant sort of way. With 3 Ship, 1 Rider or 22 Paths7 Snake can symbolize something as mundane as roadblocks or traffic snarls, particularly in a daily draw where the card meanings are of a “lighter” variety. In a health question, 15 Bear + 7 Snake could represent a digestive issue. If 21 Mountain is close by, it could be constipation.

In general, however, 7 Snake symbolizes deceit, betrayal, and complications, particularly in a relationship reading. With Queen of Clubs as the playing card inset, it also is one of the person cards, symbolizing a woman who may or may not be older than the querent and who may be devious or mysterious in some manner. As a woman, 7 Snake often wears glasses or contact lenses. 7 Snake can represent a woman with psychic abilities. It may also represent the partner in a lesbian relationship, or the “Other Woman” in a love triangle.

The following example shows how 7 Snake may play out in a reading:

A female querent wanted some insight on a male co-worker who’d recently joined the company where she worked. She found the man attractive and wondered if a possible romantic relationship could develop between them. He appeared to be “footloose and fancy free,” didn’t wear a wedding band, and she hadn’t heard any gossip that he was already involved in another relationship. They worked together in the same department and as far as she could tell, had plenty in common. She could already imagine herself in bed with him, but before she went any further, she wanted some reassurance he was as “available” as he appeared to be.

 

Is Male X romantically available?

7 Snake – 26 Book – 29 Woman

Mlle. Lenormand Jeu de destin No. 194115 (c) 1986 Piatnik

 

The Lenormand cards selected at random for this reading were quite literal: “No, he is not available!”

7 Snake shows deception or complications and 26 Book shows secrets or hidden information. The cards clearly indicate that this man is deceiving (Snake) our querent by hiding (Book) his relationship with another woman (Woman).

She’d do best to steer clear of him…

Lenormand Cards Discuss Birth of Twins: Letter, Tree, Snake, Gentleman, Sun, Bouquet

Yesterday afternoon I was anxiously awaiting news about the birth of a dear family friend’s twin girls. I had gotten a text from my younger daughter that the friend, who’d gone into the hospital early in the morning due to a health complication, was still in labor.

I asked the Lenormand cards what was going on and got:

 

27 Letter - 5 Tree - 7 Snake - 28 Gentleman - 31 Sun - 9 Bouquet
27 Letter – 5 Tree – 7 Snake – 28 Gentleman – 31 Sun – 9 Bouquet

Mystical Lenormand (c) 2005, 2007 – AGM-Muller

 

The cards suggested I would get a text (Letter) about a health complication or physical problem (Tree + Snake) that the doctor would successfully resolve (Gentleman + Sun with Tree).

The base card 9 Bouquet (bottom card of shuffled deck) suggested there would be a positive turn around (Snake + Bouquet) and I’d soon be hearing happy news (Bouquet + Letter).

Wanting to learn more about the babies, I found 13 Child in the deck and pulled the card before and three cards after:

15 Bear - 13 Child - 11 Whip - 10 Scythe - 8 Coffin
15 Bear – 13 Child – 11 Whip – 10 Scythe – 8 Coffin

Mystical Lenormand (c) 2005, 2007 – AGM-Muller

 

The cards indicated that the children were strong and healthy (Bear + Child) and the pregnancy would likely end (Coffin) after a painful surgery (Whip + Scythe). I surmised that a Cesarian section would occur.

 

What Actually Happened:

I received the happy news (Bouquet + Letter) early this morning. The doctor (Gentleman) had successfully (Sun) managed the mother’s health complication (Tree + Snake) and the twins were born yesterday evening.

Both babies are strong and healthy (Bear + Child). Baby A was delivered vaginally, while Baby B was delivered via Cesarian section, as the cards had suggested. 11 Whip correlates with the number 2 and it was the second twin that required surgical intervention.

Once again, the Lenormand cards amazed me with their accuracy.

As I write this post, Mom and babies are doing well and all of us are over the moon with happiness!

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins

Lenormand Cards Discuss a Book: Snake, Lilies, Book, Whip, Scythe, Paths

When I throw cards for my daily draw, I usually just ask for a heads-up on how my day will go. This morning, however, I had an exact question.

There is a book I want to purchase. Yesterday I went online and discovered this particular book would take two to three weeks to ship. I didn’t want to wait that long, so I thought maybe I would check out the local Barnes & Noble and get the book there. As it turned out, schedule conflicts interfered and I never made it to the store. So this morning, I asked the cards if the book I wanted would be available at the bookstore.

I decided to use the Mystical Lenormand deck and I energetically charged 26 Book while shuffling the cards. After finding that card in the deck, I chose the two cards preceding and following it to complete my draw. As usual, I also pulled the base card (bottom card of the deck) for additional information.

Here’s what I got:

7 Snake - 30 Lilies - 26 Book - 11 Whip - 10 Scythe - 22 Paths
7 Snake – 30 Lilies – 26 Book – 11 Whip – 10 Scythe – 22 Paths

Mystical Lenormand (c) 2005, 2007 – AGM-Muller

 

The cards described the situation — and the book — perfectly. The reason I asked the question was because I considered the long delivery time (Lilies) had I ordered the book online yesterday as planned problematic (Snake). The Line of 5 went on to show that the book (Book) concerns the termination/ cancellation/ elimination (Scythe) of sex/ sexual (Whip) hormones.

As I considered the cards, I further realized that 7 Snake + 30 Lilies could be indicating an aging problem — likely about females since Snake can indicate an older woman — due to termination/ cancellation/ elimination (Scythe) of sexual (Whip) hormones.

I was amazed at how accurately the Lenormand cards described the book, which is about managing and naturally restoring the loss of female hormones experienced after menopause through the use of topical bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

22 Paths as the base card suggested that since Barnes & Noble was only a short jaunt from my house, why not take a ride and find out if the book I’m looking for is there?

Seeing 10 Scythe as the last card in the Line of 5 felt confusing. I wasn’t sure if Scythe was indicating a “harvest,” and that yes, the book would be in stock, or if it meant the book had been “cut” from the inventory. I’ll have my answer later today and will update this post.

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins

UPDATE:  My local bookstore did not have the book I want in stock, confirming the Scythe’s traditional (negative) meaning of a cutting or elimination.

All was not lost, however. I was able to put the book on order at the same price I could have gotten it for online, with delivery promised within five to seven days and no shipping costs!

So, as a card giving clarification or additional information, perhaps 22 Paths was also indicating that an alternative route/ direction to getting the book I desired was available.
