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.]

Mlle Lenormand Cartomancy Deck of 36 Cards

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

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Meanings and Combinations: 24 Hand in Hand

Seventeen of the 52* Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards depict images not contained in a normal Lenormand card deck. As far as I can determine, there is little information available on the internet that illuminates the meanings of these 17 cards. For those of us interested in understanding this deck, all we can do is continue to work with the cards and begin to develop our own compendium of meanings and combinations, based on how the cards seem to be speaking to us. The Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Card I will be discussing in today’s post is number 24 Hand in Hand.

A Little Background Information on the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards

Each of the 52* Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards consists of five elements:

  1. Playing card inset
  2. Number
  3. Title
  4. Image
  5. Prophecy

Which, or how many, of these elements is important in any particular card draw depends on the question asked and the circumstances surrounding the question. According to the general rules of cartomancy with playing cards, “red is good and black is bad.” As card readers and diviners, however, we must keep in mind that the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards do not follow the rules and some of the red cards in this deck carry a more sinister vibration, for example, 11 Fox (Ace of Hearts) and 36 Cat (8 of Hearts).

By Itself, Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand is a Fully Positive Card

As an individual card, Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand expresses in a fully positive manner: the playing card inset, King of Hearts, is positive. The number vibration 24/6 is positive. The card title, Hand in Hand, connotes cooperation and agreement. The image depicts a friendly handshake between a man and a woman. The “fortune” or “prophecy” suggests trust, cooperation, fidelity and general good fortune. Unless it is surrounded or hemmed in by cards of a more negative nature, Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand gives a “yes” answer to a yes-or-no question and casts a favorable light on whatever subject you are asking the cards to discuss.

The Numerology of Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand

The second element shared by the 52* Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards is the number assigned to each individual card. Some cards resonate more strongly with their assigned number than others, and Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand is one of them.

From a numerological standpoint, Gypsy Witch 24 Hand in Hand strongly resonates to the 24/6 vibration, which is a fortunate love and family vibration. It is magnetic, favorable, and altogether lovely. Some other qualities associated with the 24/6 vibration include: social and financial success; sound business judgment; practicality in money matters; creativity (a creative mind); clairvoyancy; interest in and support of family matters; gain (in all areas); and love.

*Note: There are actually 55 cards in the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards deck: 52 playing cards, the Joker, and two “extra” Jokers, one red and one black (3 Jokers total).

Reading with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards Part 4

The more I work with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards, the more I enjoy them.

I mentioned in Part 2 of this series that the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards do not follow the rules. While all 52 playing cards (plus 3 Jokers) are in the deck and they can be read as such, the cards also depict 35 of the 36 Lenormand images, causing one to assume they can be read that way as well. Until you discover the card numbers assigned are not the same and the playing card insets are different as well. What’s with that?

Gypsy Witch 27 Dog (4 of Diamonds) vs Lenormand 18 Dog (10 of Hearts)
Gypsy Witch 27 Dog (4 of Diamonds) vs Lenormand 18 Dog (10 of Hearts)

 

And then you might notice, if you make Gypsy Witch #43 Lightning (6 of Clubs) equal Lenormand 36 Cross (6 of Clubs) which works for me, there are still 16 additional images that are not contained in a regular Lenormand deck. Hmmmm. And on top of that, there are “fortunes” or “prophecies” written on each of the 52 cards. (There are no “fortunes” or “prophecies” written on the three Joker cards.)

Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 45 Order (Jack of Clubs) - 49 Eye (4 of Spades) - 24 Hand in Hand (King of Hearts) - 38 Flames (7 of Diamonds)
Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards 45 Order (Jack of Clubs) – 49 Eye (4 of Spades) – 24 Hand in Hand (King of Hearts) – 38 Flames (7 of Diamonds)

 

So, what gives? Do you read them as playing cards? Lenormand cards? Oracle cards? Do you have to choose one system or another? Can you blend them together and, if so, how? “Everybody” knows playing cards are read differently from Lenormand cards. And Oracle cards seem to have their own sets of rules, depending on the deck.

Since there isn’t much of anything online (that I’ve been able to find) about how to read / work with this deck, I can only share with you my own experiences and encourage you to “take what works and leave the rest behind” as you develop your own personal relationship with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards.
