Lenormand Cards Confirm Death of a Pet

This is an entry from my daily journal:

 

On August 3, 2013, I asked the Lenormand cards,

‘What is in my immediate future – the next 35 days or so?’

I pulled:

30 Lilies - 8 Coffin - 3 Ship - 18 Dog - 13 Child - 2 Clover
30 Lilies – 8 Coffin – 3 Ship – 18 Dog – 13 Child – 2 Clover

Here’s how I interpreted the cards:

Death of a pet. My dear kitty Sasha is on her way out. Dog + Child = puppy, small pet. (Dog can refer to pets in general, including cats.)

She’s old (Lilies), small (Child), a pet (Dog), and she’s on her way out (Coffin + Ship).

Clover indicates 2 months / 2 weeks / 2 days.

 

What Actually Happened:

My sweet, little 18 year old kitty, Sasha, had been losing weight over the summer at an alarming rate, and I was just beginning to realize she’d lost her hearing as well. I knew something was up. Despite the cards I had drawn, I remained in denial. I wasn’t ready to let her go.

Sasha took a turn for the worse approximately two weeks (Clover) after the date of the draw. The week of 8/19 was very bad. By Sunday, 8/25, it was certain she was dying. On Monday, 8/26, I called a local vet and arranged to bring her in for euthanasia. Sasha was given a lethal injection at 10:45 am on Monday, 8/26/2013.

I cried all day.

All week.

On and off through September, and into October…

Approximately two months later (Clover), Charlie and Midnight came into my home and my life.

Charlie and Midnight are Rescue Kitties, abandoned when their family pulled up stakes and left town. Charlie, the orange guy, is about 3 or 4 years old and as friendly and cuddly and playful as can be. Midnight, an older, toothless gent of about 7, purrs up a storm, eats like there’s no tomorrow, and wakes me up every morning by poking his paw in my face . I still miss my sweet Sasha, and always will, but I’ve grown to love my new Kitty Boys.

Lenormand Cards Weekly Draw: Tower, Coffin, Scythe, Mountain, Clover, Rider

On Sundays, instead of doing a daily draw, I usually take a look at the week ahead, asking for a heads up on what might occur.

Here are the cards I pulled this morning:

 

19 Tower - 8 Coffin - 10 Scythe - 21 Mountain - 2 Clover - 1 Rider
19 Tower – 8 Coffin – 10 Scythe – 21 Mountain – 2 Clover – 1 Rider

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

 

The Lenormand cards seemed to be following up on a situation I’d heard about yesterday when I was alerted that an older gentleman friend had wound up in the hospital after experiencing what appeared to be a stroke.

This morning’s cards showed the sudden (Scythe) hospitalization (Tower + Coffin), and went on to indicate a potentially slow and possibly challenging recovery (Mountain + Clover). Rider as the base card suggested I will get an update on the situation sometime this week.

While Clover at the end of the Line of 5 is encouraging and suggestive of recovery, I know this card has a temporary influence, so I can’t help but worry a bit about my friend’s long term prospects.

On the other hand, perhaps Clover is simply saying that this old boy will luck out & be sent home as good as new. I think I’d rather focus on that outcome for now.

Lenormand Daily Draw: Book, Tower, Rider, Coffin, Birds, Anchor

This morning I pulled the following cards for my daily draw:

Lenormand cards 26 Book - 19 Tower - 1 Rider - 8 Coffin - 12 Birds - 35 Anchor
26 Book – 19 Tower – 1 Rider – 8 Coffin – 12 Birds – 35 Anchor

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.

Blessings,

Mary Hawkins

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!

 

Lenormand Daily Draw: Coffin, Cross, Storks

We each have our crosses to bear. Mine include frequent morning headaches which I rate in my daily journal on a scale of 1 (not so much) to 5 (just shoot me now).

This morning I got hit with a 4.

The headache, which had started around 4:00 a.m., was so painful I almost didn’t pull cards (the key word being ‘almost’). The ibuprofen I’d taken (chugged down with the requisite cup of black coffee) hadn’t made a dent. How I evenĀ  managed to shuffle the deck can only be explained by sheer force of habit.

Here’s what I drew:

8 Coffin 36 Cross 17 Storks
8 Coffin – 36 Cross – 17 Stork

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

 

The first two cards were appropriately literal. COFFIN can indicate a headache and COFFIN + CROSS certainly can suggest a headache of monumental proportions. The third card, STORK, was hopeful, indicating relief, as this card often indicates changes, usually for the better.

I wound up going back to bed for a couple hours, and by the time I got back up, thankfully, the headache had dissipated, allowing me to continue on with my day.

In retrospect, I’m glad the daily draw hadn’t been more complicated. My head was hurting way too much to bother trying to figure out much more information than these three cards provided.

Lenormand Cards Give a Literal Reading

When you draw cards every day like I do, it’s probable you are going to get ordinary information more often than not. I think this is because card readers, at least the ones I know, tend to be introspective and do not live a roller-coaster life where weird and wild things happen to them on a regular basis.

Many of my daily draws simply confirm something I already know.

A case in point:

My sister visited over the winter holidays. On the morning of her departure (while she was still snoozing on the sofa), I drew my cards for the day and got:

 

Lenormand 29 Woman - 20 Garden - 8 Coffin
29 Woman – 20 Garden – 8 Coffin

The Enchanted Lenormand Oracle – Caitlin Matthews & Virginia Lee

 

Here’s how I interpreted the spread, straight from my personal journal:

“The social activities/ festivities (Garden) with my sister (Woman) come to an end (Coffin).”

And that was exactly what happened. Later that afternoon, I drove my sister to the train station and watched her board for her trip back home. I felt a little depressed (Coffin). I love my sister (Woman) and I had enjoyed hanging out with her (Garden).
