Holy shit Y'all. I love this Lenormand deck by Siolo Thompson and I get asked about it every time I post of photo of her beautifully illustrated cards. The Lenormand readings tend to be so blunt and I felt like we really needed a straight shooter this week, so Lenormand it is - here we go:
- Broom - In traditional Lenormand decks, The Broom is presented with another card, The Whip. In this version, The Broom is a little gentler and kinder...it's about clearing away, dissolution and separation - but also about fresh starts. With the air clear, we can move forward. It's also indicative of truth telling - sweeping away lies.
- Scissor - This card is represented as a Scythe in Lenormand and it is all about cutting away problems - in relationships or situations that fail to serve you. This card also turns up as a warning sometimes, about making rash decisions and rushing into things too quickly.
- Heart - This card is super straightforward, Generally speaking, The Heart is all about love, affection, passion - whatever you hold most dear to your own heart, in fact. It's not only about romance though, acts of caring and generosity are called upon here as well. It's a good one (and a personal favorite of mine in this deck).
This week we are asked to clean house - to take mental inventory of everything in your life that isn't working out for you and just rid yourself of it. This is a broad reading, so obviously that's going to be different from person to person, but I think it's a good rule of thumb to follow in general. Taking a hard, honest look at our own lives is tough...made even tougher if we've been lying to ourselves about staying in unhealthy relationships, working in a job we don't feel passionate about, and/or our perspective regarding our own personal conduct and behaviors. It's a good time of year for all of us to clear the negative bullshit out of our lives - just remember, the things we don't like in others is often mirroring the things we don't like about ourselves. Time for some Shadow Work, Y'all!
Where the Broom and Scissor are asking us to take some serious spiritual, interpersonal and philosophical inventory, our dear Heart is here to remind you that doing so will make space for the things which are truly important to you. Which will be awesome for you!
