I drew from various oracles to foresee what’s coming up during the month of August. Here are a few images of the various sources of wisdom and the messages that came through for me. I am still working on deciphering what it all means.
Time: 6:15 AM.
Weather: 54 Degrees Fahrenheit; Overcast, but the sun is coming out.
Cards Drawn: Anchor + House + Bouquet
Key Card Focus: Anchor
Keywords: Stability / Base / Commitment + Homey / Familial + Pleasant
Feeling secure and comfortable at the home base — Pleasant homeland security, lol. A gift of safe home environment. A stable and pleasant home. Maybe an invitation to a house warming?
Time: 10:05 PM
What happened in relation to the cards:
Actually my feelings at home weren’t so secure because I got into an argument with my husband over house chores and other stuff. I am also feeling really congested, so there was not much around the house or work that felt pleasant.
I realized, though, the cards’ true meaning just a few minutes ago, after rereading Andy’s comment about the Anchor’s daily meaning — it was all about my older sister, whose birthday is today. Because we live in different countries we get to communicate via Skype. So today, my two-year-old and I skyped my sister to wish her a happy birthday. My daughter said: “Happy birthday, Lina,” which made my sister over-the-moon pleased. I think she even cried a little. It was without a doubt the best birthday wish she’s gotten today. And it made me feel like a proud mommy!
The real prediction of this reading turned out to be: Pleasant familial commitments, i.e. calling to say happy birthday and feeling satisfied in a special way about it. The Anchor continues to be a theme card recently, and I slowly see the not so apparent aspects of its meaning; especially relating to daily activities.
This morning I drew three cards from my Pixie Lenormand (1st ed.), and supplemented it with same three cards from the Mystical Lenormand. I also drew one card from The Victorian Flower Oracle.
Time: 8:00 AM
Weather: Cloudy, with a chance of rain — 59 Degrees Fahrenheit.
Key Card Focus: Anchor
Keywords: Stability + Phone/Email Communication / Stressful + Heavy or Blocked
Anchor + Birds = Communication and anxiety around concepts of security. Birds + Mountain = “Heavy” or blocked emails and/or phone calls. Mountain + Anchor = Inertia
I feel that a lot of today’s energy will be spent on heavy, and possibly unfruitful, email and phone communications. Concepts like Inertial and feeling lonely, abandoned, stuck, and blocked are predominating.
I am still feeling under the weather, and have a sore throat and a looming root canal. In addition, I am going to see my burn specialist, who is going to examine my recent surgery site. One of the items I need to purchase ASAP (and fight my medical insurance so they pay for it) is a very expensive and custom compression garment to keep my scars from raising and thickening. Wearing a compression garment feels in a way like being stuck in that Mountain energy.
I feel that these cards could also relate to a specific clients I am going to read for today.
Time: 10:11 PM
Some of the energy did relate to my client, and the difficulties she’s going through. But the majority of the draw seems to be connected to the events of the day, or rather to the events that didn’t happen today.
(1) Both my husband and I didn’t realize that my burn specialist appointment was scheduled quite early. When I saw the time my appointment is scheduled, I texted him but he didn’t receive my text in time. Eventually, I had to reschedule the appointment.
(2) The person who was supposed to figure all the information relating to my compression garment ended up leaving me a voicemail saying she was very sorry but she still didn’t have all the needed information. And she’ll be in touch with me as soon as she knows more.
(3) And, I finally ended up getting a dentist appointment, but only for next week. So there’s a delay there too.
It seems that Mountain in today’s context represented largely a delay. Though things are going to fall into place (Anchor), it’s going to take longer than initially anticipated. Also, communication was blocked — my husband didn’t receive my text message in. And I ended up discussing the delay, in a way, via phone; i.e. rescheduling appointments, trying to get appointments, and listening to VMs. Truly, there’s a sense of inertia to today because I didn’t get to do as much as I hoped for, and I am “stuck” in the same place due to not accomplishing as much as I wanted.
For today’s daily draw I decided to pull 9 cards from my new Pixie Lenormand, for a 3X3 block. And also drew 2 cards from The Victorian Flower Oracle. Here’s what I got:
Problem: Thistle / Threat
Solution: Tulip / Propserity
Book — Ship — Clouds
Anchor — Flowers — Tower
Bear — Lady — Cross
This one is a loaded one. I’m not really surprised.
Daisy — Family Matters
Cross — Book — Anchor — Letter — Bear
Queen of Diamonds — Ace of Clubs — Significator — 9 of Spades — 7 of Hearts
9 of Spades repeats in Lenormand, via the Anchor.
The Book is 10 of Diamonds & The Bear is 10 of Clubs
