Summertime: A 3-Months Russian Gypsy Draw

Summertime, time, time,
Child, the living’s easy.
Fish are jumping out
And the cotton, Lord,
Cotton’s high, Lord, so high.

The sun is shining bright and the countdown has begun! My solar return commences in less than 24 hours, crowned with a Rose Full Moon is Sagittarius and a partial Lunar Eclipse. Also, two whole weeks of summer break start in a week and a day from today. And here’s the cherry on the icing: we’ll be on a plane to the mysterious city of my fantasies, New Orleans, in 9 days — Child, the living’s easy!

Well, maybe not that easy considering the job front is starting to borderline unbearable again. But summer beats even that. My life is a carnival. I am aware of that. And so over a ride on the roller coaster I pick the ferris wheel consciously. Too old for drama, I’m intent on manifesting a calmer type of happiness. And when I am completely loosing my zen, I will try to remind myself of the following Russian proverb:

G-d’s with us, and hell’s with them!

Talking about proverbs, I figured that today would be a good day to set some periodical fortunetelling in place with the Russian Gypsy Fortune Telling Cards. Summertime, here I come!

[# Title — General card description; Prediction based on a specific position. Time period]

40 Knot — Family Ties; You have tied strong knots for a lifetime. Life

31 Sun — Warmth and strength of character. Immediate to middle.

Your daddy’s rich
And your ma is so good-looking, baby.
She’s looking good now,
Hush, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby,
No, no, no, no, don’t you cry.
Don’t you cry!

36 Handshake — State of the union between two people; The handshake will weaken if you don’t make an effort to strengthen it. Middle to life.

35 Anchor — Stability or hindrance; Disillusionment with the ideal / doubts. Middle

50 Bread — Happiness; Profit and happiness in the house, success in business affairs. Middle.

One of these mornings
You’re gonna rise, rise up singing,
You’re gonna spread your wings,
Child, and take, take to the sky,
Lord, the sky.

Last Card (outcome):

39 Horse (no match) — Emotional upheaval; Your feelings will be trampled upon. Immediate.


But until that morning
Honey, n-n-nothing’s going to harm you now,
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no,
Don’t you cry,
Cry.

I wish everybody a wonderful summer, full of sunny, bright days, and lucky and happy fortunes. with this in mind, today I leave you with Janis because nobody does Summertime better than her. Bless your soul, sister!

    I just got these and I wish now that I’d gotten them a lonnnnng time ago.
    I may never remember all those directional meanings and it’s not quick enough for phone readings, but it’s my new favorite personal deck. 🙂 Just me and friends. I’ll sit on the floor and *gasp* look the meanings up in the book! 😀
    Youtube took your Summertime video down, but I found another one for you. *raises shotglass of Southern Comfort* 🙂

      They’re very interesting, for sure. You have to take the author’s advice with a grain of salt tho…. lol

        BIG grain of salt, lol.
        I think Andy advised using the short meanings and not paying attention to the longer explanations unless you get stuck. Works for me. 🙂

        Yeah, the pro-christian approach was a bit too much for me. And girl, I’m a Jew, and I do loads of readings on Sundays and on Saturdays. lol
