Repost - Andy Boroveshengra/néosfortune: The Final Word or The Heart's Spade

A lot of good pointers in this example! Be sure to read the notes as well.

Andy is one of the best. He's published my favourite book on Lenormand, and his Tarot de Marseille book is coming out in October. 👍

Repost - Myth & Moor: The Peace of Wild Things

"When nature is personal, the world is peopled by rocks, trees, rivers, and mountains, all of whom are actors and agents, protagonists of their own stories rather than just props in a human story. When Earth is truly alive, the world is full of persons, only some of whom are human."

Thank you, ATA!

Crazy thing is, this is the second time I've won. With all the members ATA must have, I can't believe that's possible! But I'm not complaining. 😁

YouTube: How 'Nandora Tarot' uses her Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling cards

This is so cool!

A lot of people struggle to use Gypsy Witch cards because the deck combines elements of Lenormand plus additional symbols, a full set of playing cards, and Near and Far placement meanings (like the method found in the "Philippe LeNormand" instruction sheets that came with early Lennie decks). They don't know which way to jump first!

I love that Naomi has taken this "disadvantage" and created a magical method all her own.

Oracle Haiku

Speak up, I can't hear you...

I’ve just made a fairly obvious discovery about communicating with spirit, specifically passed loved ones, that I'd like to share. You probably know this intellectually as well, but it bears saying directly.

Ok, here goes - You need to talk to them Out Loud. They don't just *know* what you're thinking or what you're feeling. You have to Tell Them.

I realised this while I was using cards to communicate with my mother. She showed me that she didn't know how my step-father, her husband, was feeling. Now bear in mind, she's been dead 16 years, but apparently this was still an issue. So I spoke to her, and told her that he missed her, that he still thought about her and cared for her very much. The next morning I drew cards for her again, and the joy expressed in those cards was heart-breaking. And I thought, Well duh, Judy - she didn't know what you were thinking when she was alive. What makes you think she's somehow acquired the ability to read minds just because she's changed her plane of existence?

It's good to talk.

Want to receive a spirit message through your cards?

Would you like to use your cards to receive a message from a deceased loved one or a particular spirit guide?

Assign them a significator, a card that will be their "place holder" in the deck. For example, for me, my mother always appears as the Queen of Diamonds* when using playing cards, and the Bouquet when using Lenormand.

Shuffle the deck and then thumb through it face up until you find their card. The card before (on top of) it reflects what they want to talk about or how they're feeling, and the two cards behind (below) it expand on the subject or form the message about the first card.

Need more information from them or want to ask a question? Reshuffle and repeat the process. Don't overdo it though. When you start getting jibberish is when you know you've worn them out. 😉

*Because in traditional German courts this Queen is holding a carnation, my mother's favourite flower.

Repost - Card Reader/Angelo: Another Love Reading

Somehow, I'd fallen off Angelo's notification list. I just thought he hadn't posted any of his excellent readings for a while. Then Kapherus shared a link to his latest post on Facebook. Hooray! New material, plus I now have the pleasure of catching up. 😁

YouTube: My Gypsy Decks - Special request video for chris379000

Chris is the reason I have yet another gypsy/zigeuner deck. I told him so, and he wanted to see the rest of my "collection".
See the first of Chris's gypsy videos here.
