Finally, we have some good news! After rummaging through the dark of our souls to see what we're truly made of, the lessons of the fall have come full circle. Which is good news, especially as we prepare for the winter season. It appears we will have some light in the coming darkness after all. We're also noticing a shift from focusing on our disembodied psychic and emotional selves to working on our daily lives, our careers, and of course, our physical bodies. This comes as no surprise as we begin to button up against the cold.
Using the Primal Lenormand, a reprinting of the 1799 Game of Hope, house reader Blue June shows us the light after our shadows.
RELINQUISH: 36. Cross, upright
Finally! All the suffering we've been feeling in our jobs, bodies and hearts is behind us! Many of us have found the past few months to be challenging in matters of business and have had difficulty in moving forward with our projects and goals. There has also been a lingering threat of depression that should now be easy to move past. This card can also sometimes specifically refer to lower back pain which is often caused by emotional stress. Well, now it's time to move out of this phase and leave those low vibrations behind us. It's okay to take a deep breath and release your worries. Move forward with the outlook of success!
FOCUS: 2. Clover, reversal
Now, traditionally people don't very often read Lenormand oracle cards in reversals, however I think there is a bit of a modified meaning to this card that certainly still represents good fortune and good luck! This card means that now is a good time to take a risk and put yourself out there, but be careful not to put yourself in a situation that is unsafe or could make you ill. Immune systems are easily compromised in this season, and we just want to be sure we don't put our selves in harms way. If you've been managing an illness lately, you should be on the mend shortly and if you've been waiting for the right time to take a chance on something, this month is going to be the time to do so! Just make sure that you are analyzing your decisions before hand.
CHALLENGE: 9. Roses, reversal
Because of the nature of this cards position "Challenge" we are going to put a little more emphasis on the fact that it is in reversal, but don't worry it's not so bad!! So this is another card that supports the idea that now is a great time for health, but the nature of good health comes from your own efforts. This card also suggests that things are going to go your way. Everything's coming up roses, so to speak. However, the reversed nature of this card encourages us to remain humble while these things are falling into place. Don't let your ego trick you into feeling entitled to it; show your gratitude for these blessings coming your way!
EMBRACE: 12. Mountain, reversal
There are about to be so many things to celebrate and be happy about! Yet another card that tells us physical health is improving, and obstacles are moving out of our way. Remember to be patient if the road doesn't open quite as quickly as you hoped, things are moving in the right direction. This is why it's a good idea to keep your ego in check this month. Some obstacles of the heart will need to be resolved this month, and it's time to accept that and deal with it. As far as money is concerned though, the eight of club indicates you will receive whatever you've been owed this month. Professionally, things should be smooth sailing!
