{ Mind Killer Monday: Bear }

Well, I decided to dust off my beautiful Scrying Ink deck for this week's focus card and - because Lenormand decks are direct as hell, I pulled Bear for us. Bear represents the ten of clubs and most frequently indicates personal finances and money issues for the querent. Taxes are due, finances are on the mind and so Bear has turned up to say, 'Oh hello, your anxiety about money is giving you stress, I just thought you'd like to know what you already knew. You're welcome, enjoy.'

If you are among the lucky few who are not freaking out about financial strain, you may be wondering what else can the Bear mean for us in a reading? In a career focused reading it can mean that showing aggressiveness or strength is beneficial at that time so pull up your big girl pants and get at it! In issues regarding personal health, it usually signifies weight loss or gain - a good reminder is for you to think about how bears survive their Winter hibernation by gorging on food in the Spring. (This one is relevant to me personally, as yesterday was a *personal best* for epic snack consumption and napping). Oh, and the Bear can also represent a matriarchal figure as well, so call your mom. Finally,  when romance is on the brain the Bear can signify a robust, even aggressive suitor, if you know one of those...maybe rethink things if your S.O. is acting possessive or pushy.  Also, let us not forget the direct and even literal ways of Lenormand tarot communication, for you boys who like full-figured fellers, I've got good news - this card could mean a 'bear' for you!  

This is a bear.

This is a bear.

This is also a bear.

{Three Card Monday }

Hi Y'all - I hope your weekend was good! I painted two huge ceilings and then treated myself to seeing Get Out, which I loved. Have you seen it? I love horror movies and also Jordan Peele, so this was a treat for me - I highly recommend.

Anyways, let's do this thing.

I've missed my Scrying Ink deck lately and really felt like we could use a super direct reading, so I cracked it out for us. These cards are so beautifully illustrated, I've shot them individually so we can get a better look at them!

The Scrying Ink, Mountain - with my paint-splattered, Grandpa hands. 

The Scrying Ink, Mountain - with my paint-splattered, Grandpa hands. 

- Mountain - All right. So we are presently facing some difficulties. We are experiencing some significant issues and it feels like things are moving so slowly right now. While our obstacles are no joke, they are not insurmountable...we are just going to be in for a long slog of it.

But!

The Scrying Ink, Dog. WE HAVE DOGES.

The Scrying Ink, Dog. WE HAVE DOGES.

- Dog - WE HAVE DOGES, Y'ALL. The Lenormand Dog is a card that signifies friendship, alliances, loyalty, companionship and trust. Our friendships and community are instrumental in times like these and we must remember to help each other when things get tough. We have strength in our numbers and let us not forget what a powerful tool LOVE can be. Also, Dogs!

Therefore...

The Scrying Ink, Crown, which is badass.

The Scrying Ink, Crown, which is badass.

 

- Crown - We are being asked to assume greater positions of responsibility with this card. Finding power in our numbers, we will perhaps be called to instigate great change and take a role of leadership. If you feel uncomfortable with this, believe me, that feeling is normal. I feel like many of us have seen or felt a significant shift towards more spiritual practices - moving away from traditional and outmoded methods while honing our intuitive skills. The Crown is not part of the traditional Lenormand deck, so I believe that it's appearance here is also pushing us to trust our gut and not be so reliant on 'tried and true' pathways. It's time to dig in and get real weird, Y'all!
