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.
I thought it would be of interest to share a sample 3X3 reading I gave a fellow student of the Cartomantes Cabinet. My colleague’s concerned with the month ahead, focusing mainly on love and money. Personally, I think he’ll have a rocking month!
3 Sixes — a lot of money. Money will be coming in, possibly through a full-time job. Corresponds w/ the Fish card. 2 Kings — Agreement (possibly foreshadows a successful month in the relationship arena).
– 1 –
The Focus — TOWER — ambition that is triggered by the STARS, which represent hope and guidance.
Stars + Fish + House + Ring — This shows that you’re interest isn’t only in work and relationship separately, but there’s also a desire for the relationship to help or facilitate financial growth. I hope this makes sense?
– 2 –
Rod + Clover = Lucky argument / Satisfying sexual encounters
Clover + Tower = An official lucky break
Tower + Letter = A message of official nature
Letter + Key = A positive message / document
– 3 –
Past: Star + Clover + House = Hoping for happiness in the household / relationship. Also, hoping for luck to come from the relationship.
Present: Rod + Tower + Letter = Official documents / correspondence going back-and-forth between you and a potential employer. Possible arguments based on anxiety around this issue.
Future: Fish + Key + Ring = A successful contract that brings an increase in money. Also, this position is supported within your romantic relationship.
– 4 –
House + Ring = An official commitment in a relationship + Rod = but it will also generate some strife and arguments.
Stars + Fish = A hope for business / improved finances + Letter = A document that brings a positive answer to this hope.
Time: 6:50 AM
Weather: 46 Degrees, and sunny. Seems like it’s going to be a warm day.
Cards Drawn: Clouds + Tower + Scythe
Key Card Focus: Clouds
Keywords: Confusion / Complication + Lonely / Official + Final / Aggressive
This is going to be a day of complications and confusion. Doesn’t seem like a particularly good day, considering that 2/3 of the cards are negative, which consequently paints the neutral card (Tower) negative as well.
Feels like the main blow will come from work, since The Tower usually comes up in a daily reading around this concept for me.
Time: 09:50 PM
What Happened in relation to the cards:
This was indeed a crappy day. First of all my general physical condition got worst. My tooth is really hurting, and I am even more congested. Apparently, one of my students has been coming to school with Mono for the past two weeks, so I am at high risk for getting it. Also, while keeping the medial theme going, I saw my burn specialist this afternoon. This meeting made me feel quite upset because: (1) He was almost an hour late for the appointment; and (2) though he agreed that I absolutely need a compression garment, he couldn’t offer any help in regard to dealing with insurance. I despise the medical / insurance system in the US — in this arrangement the patient’s well being is really not a priority.
Finally, on the work front, I learned some disturbing news that proved yet again of the dirty politics that’s going on there. As we say in Hebrew, “the fish stinks from the head,” meaning that management is the nastiest part of a corporation, and if something is going wrong the leadership positions are the most responsible for it — unfortunately, they’re usually the least accountable.
The Clouds, being the key card has definitely set the tone for my mood today. Things felt uncomfortable and depressing. The Tower + The Scythe seemed to represent medical issues (especially visiting a sergeant’s office, and dealing with toothache. They also added layers of loneliness and gloom.
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
