Although you are seeing this post on a Tuesday, it reflects a reading from Sunday. I’ve experienced and posted enough readings that reflect accurate results in terms of the situation, I think it’s also important to show the readings gone wrong.(Forget Girls Gone Wild videos, let’s get those crazy cards filmed as Readings Gone Wrong!)

I ordered something from and was surprised to see an option for Sunday delivery. I thought I’d go ahead and order, and see how that worked. (It’s been rolled out in various cities, but I hadn’t seen it until now.) Although the delivery estimate was Sunday by 8m, when I didn’t receive my package in the early afternoon, I began to wonder if it would show up. Will my package arrive today? Time to consult the cards!

On Saturday I had the opportunity to do a quick predictive reading with same-day confirmation. I wondered whether my partner would work his on-call shift at his part-time job, so I whipped out my trusty Lo Scarabeo Tarot deck to ask that question. As usual, I focused on the question and let my mind calm while shuffling the cards until I felt they didn’t need to be shuffled anymore. I had decided on a three-card spread, and this was the result:

Although I’ve never been interested in kippers in general, I’ve always liked the Mystical Kipper illustrated by Urban Trösch. The False Person who looks like a female vampire; the Bereavement card that reminds me of Edward Gorey’s art; and the charming feel of the warmly lit, Victorian House; these all stand out to me. When I saw the Mystical Kipper in a local store a few months ago, I “grabbed while the grabbing was good.”

When I got them home and looked through the deck, I liked the artwork but wasn’t moved to read with it. The “people decks” like kippers and sibillas never appealed to me, as the abundance of people cards seemed too much of a crowd. I always thought the Lenormand seemed more balanced. So I set this deck aside.

I made efforts to clean out some of my card collection over the weekend and decided to give the Mystical Kipper an honest try. I used seven cards as a chakra reading, to see what’s going on in the areas of life as related to the seven chakras. I used a linear layout from left to right; so the first card on the left is the base chakra, the second card is the second or sacral chakra, and so on.

My first impression wasn’t great. Prison, Bereavement and Short Illness stood out as three negative cards which were hard to ignore!

However, this picture is feeling a bit quiet today, so I can share a couple of facts.

This continues my previous post, using the Egyptian stones inspired by the Cartouche oracle cards, to look at current influences surrounding me in the context of work. It also mentions the Cartouche cards, some relationships between Cartouche and other oracles, and even an ancient Egyptian pun!

Again, this is based on a Tree of Life spread where the planetary aspects take precedence. I left off with Earth in the fifth position of Mars. I will continue with the lower half of the tree.

I used my Egyptian stones, based on the Cartouche oracle cards, to take a brief look at influences at work and around me at this time. This is based on a Tree of Life spread where the planetary aspects take precedence.

A reader of this blog, Justin, asked in a comment:

Do you have a specific tarot spread you would recommend for looking into situations at work?


My response was so lengthy I decided to turn it into a post. Here is my reply to Justin, which others may also find helpful.

I made a set of Egyptian “rune” stones for myself. They are based on the much-loved (in some quarters!) Cartouche cards by Murry Hope. I recently obtained Cartouche for a bargain price. I got the Way of Cartouche book and deck kit. The cards in this set are doubled in size from their original printing, I understand, which makes them quite large — bigger than a tarot. I was interested in having something smaller, and with the recent winery visit I also had durability in mind.

I’m attending a winery event this weekend, and was thinking about doing some readings there. It was popular when I did so the last time. However, part of me just wants to go, drink wine and enjoy myself. Without worrying about people unloading their problems, trying to find semi-privacy or — worst of all — watching that my cards don’t blow away in bursts of wind when sitting outdoors!

So I sought some advice from the cards. What do I need to know about reading at the winery this weekend? I chose the Dreampower Tarot.

I don’t know why, but even after after all these years with the Lenormand, their directness can still surprise and excite me.

The head of our department called the managers in my area for a private meeting this morning. Since two of them were on vacation, this was unusual and worrisome. I wondered what kind of news might come out of this. So I hit up the Lenormand to ask: what is the news that will be shared in this meeting?

I used The Fool’s Dog iPhone app, although I’ve depicted here with my new Gilded Reverie Lenormand. For those of you who are newer to Lenormand, even though these cards may look a little different than older cards — for example this Birds card depicts more than two birds — they are read the same. Lenormand is Lenormand, no matter the deck.
