Redirection

Good morning to all of you who support and encourage my progress with this deck. I need to let you in on a development.

1) I have a website that is just for what I do, what I am doing and has some nifty sacred spaces and blog posts on it. One of these blog posts is The Lenormand Light. I am taking the entries from this blog and transferring them there. So I will be posting only on that site in the future. The website is:  The Creativity Place  I recommend that you bookmark this site and return to it to see the new posts. I am exploring ways to share the blogs with you: the main blog, The Lenormand Light blog and The Contract Tarot blog.

2) This website houses my artwork, the decks of cards I am creating, merchandise, forums, etc. Just check out the drop down menus and you’ll see for yourself. I hope you enjoy what you find.

3) I will redirect this site by 17 August 2012. So, if you forget and click on this site, you will be redirected to the appropriate website.

I am still creating cards, still uploading and still planning goodies and such. I hope to have the Lenormand cards finished by the end of this month or early September 2012.

I’ll post a card tomorrow. Until then… Love, light and blessings! ♥

Freshly Squeezed Lenormand: The Meeting Place

The Meeting Place is full of sun It dances brightly on the flowers It showers those who visit here With love, with long spent hours Of holding hands, of stolen kisses Of good company and reminiscences Of friendships old and friendships new Of times past and time to come Come to the Meeting Place here in the sun.

In traditional decks, this is the Park or Garden card. It is a meeting place where people go to gather, to connect, to transact business, to meet. It is a place of possibilities and opportunities. It is a place of friendship and love.

If this card is near the Key card, you are seeing a long and lasting friendship. If it is far from the Key card, it tells of false friends or fair-weather friends.

What do you see in this card? How would you interpret it?

Freshly Squeezed Lenormand: Time

Time has authority Over our lives It treats us each In isolation And gives us ties To powerful dominion Of experience Of healing Of inspiration If we heed time.

This card is usually the Tower card in traditional decks.

I’ve changed it to Time because when I think of authority, I think of large institutions and things that constrict and bind us. The largest thing I could think of was time. It is a completely man-made concept by natural observation of sun and moon and passing seasons.

Ironically, time changes over time.  Have you ever noticed that you need to set or reset your timepieces as time goes by. Daylight savings time, that not all places honor, changes our entire cycle of time twice a year. We use atomic clocks for keeping accurate time but, even then, we have to adjust for a few seconds of time lost over time.

What do you see in this card? How would you interpret it?

Until Monday… Love, light and blessings!

PS I try to post a card a day but have recently not met this goal. As I am deep in the process of creating and gathering goodies and working out bugs to creating the cards, I cannot guarantee it will be a daily post. I will strive to be as constant as I can though and, once the cards are complete, there will only be making them, sorting out goodies and posting them to those eager to embrace them! It is an exciting project and I can’t wait to share it all with you!

I now have a website where you can see a slideshow of all the cards I’ve created to date. If you’d like to visit… please click on Freshly Squeezed Lenormand and it will take you there!  Thank you all for your support and encouragement! ♥

Freshly Squeezed Lenormand: Friendship

 “Billy the goat and Tiger the cat And Floppy the bunny and me Playing catch! Come join us and see How friendship can be! But beware what’s around you Because it may surround you With false expectations And commiserations For friends once perceived Can often deceive.”

I enjoyed making this card. So often our pets are our friends and we find they bring us much joy! I chose the traditional dog to be the voice of this card but I didn’t want to miss other non-traditional pets like the billy goat and the rabbit. Of course, a cat demanded to be part of this card as well.

When this card appears in a reading, it is important to look at the cards that surround it and the position it is in for the reading. If it is away from the Key card and is surrounded by other cards of bad omen, it can mean friends that will be deceitful or treacherous. If it is near the Key card, it can represent someone you rely on, a son, brother, young man or lover. If the Clouds card is next to it, be warned, that someone you rely on may not be so reliable. Treat this with caution and question the veracity.

Until tomorrow… Love, light and blessings!

PS I am forging ahead with these cards and making good progress. I hope to have them available sometime in September for you. If you’d like to be notified of availability, please go to The Creativity Place, fill in the form and submit it. I will notify you when the cards are ready.

PSS I am putting goodies with these decks. Every deck will have a beautiful golden organza bag with it and the first 20 orders will also get a lovely, small, lemon-yellow faceted sapphire.  Just because… ♥

Freshly Squeezed Lenormand – Change

Change is afoot It’s time to move! A new beginning awaits For you. Where will you go What will you do Adventure is knocking You need to get packing Change is afoot!

In traditional decks, this is known as the Stork.

This card depicts a moving van in front of a house. The ramp is extended, the sold sign is apparent and moving is happening.

When this card is near the Significator card, it tells you that change/a move is imminent. When it is far from the Significator card, it tells you that change/a move is on the horizon.

What do you see in this card? How would you interpret it?

*****

There is change afoot in my house, too! I have many projects on the go. This is one of them. It takes time to make these cards and I may not always be ready to post as I am caught up with my creation. I have 19 cards to go and I am striving to get these done so we can get them printed and boxed, along with some goodies (I hope) in time for Christmas. We are going to self-publish this deck. This will give me the opportunity to sign one card of the deck for you (don’t know which one but it will be random). So, I need some time to create. If you would be kind enough to give me a couple of weeks… I may just have loads more to share with you. So, until the 6th of August… Love, light and blessings!!!

Thank you for your interest, your support and your encouragement!!! ♥

Freshly Squeezed Lenormand – Stars

Look to the stars! What do you see? Good fortune and success Locked in astronomy? The stars hail success Intuition and spirituality Psychic powers are heightened In the light of astrology Stars bring luck Good fortune and bliss Look up to the stars To find your happiness!

In traditional decks, this card is called Stars.

When we look to the heavens to view the wonders of the night sky, we’re reminded of just how much we don’t know and how small we are. I often wonder if the night sky is the microscope of a scientist who works within a dark room. He lights a multitude of lights and this reflects off the surface of our Spirit to give the illusion of billions of stars in the sky. And then, I wonder, who is watching that scientist under a microscope of illusion?

I also look at the stars in the night sky and realize with humility that I am part of that vast universe. I am star dust! I am a product of conspiracy… of elements, energy, light! I am witnessing and feeling the Oneness of I am… ♥

So what do you see in this card? How would you interpret it?

Until tomorrow… Love, light and blessings!
