This morning I was sitting next to my bookcase with a shelf full of decks and I couldn't decide which deck to use. I held some of them in my hand, drew some cards but nothing really happened. No “Aha” experience or a “Yes that’s it” thought. I drew the proverbial "blank" this morning. Although I didn't like it, It didn't strike me as odd. After an intense couple of days for me the last week, tarot wise, the well was a bit dried up. So I decided to draw some Lenormand cards to answer the question; what to do next. I used the Gilded Reverie Lenormand and I drew three cards with the center card as the main subject:
Birds + House + Ship
1. After a lot of and talking/blogging about a spiritual journey it is a good idea to stay home and rest for a while.
2. Being at home talking about a journey; physical or spiritual. What do I long for? Where do I want to go?
3. Searching for a place to retreat away from the chatter of daily life.
The first and the last interpretation speak to me the most. I guess I really need some peace and quiet today. I do feel a bit hermit-like lately and I love spending time alone. Autumn is starting early this year and I love the introspective quality of this season.
When I count the inserts for a conclusive message , I get lily: When I listen to the message of these cards I may find harmony, tranquility and maybe even wisdom.
So today I am going to consciously seek for a quiet place, in or outside myself, to explore silence and rest for a while…..
