Here is a tableau spread with the Old Castle Lenormand, as a Halloween treat.
Pardon the washed out image, I didn’t have optimum lighting. Below is an enlargable image.
I thought to do a quick reading this morning, as I drink my morning coffee (Godiva brand pumpkin flavor — was on sale — yum!). I used my Gilded Reverie app and did a two-card reading.
Sorry the image looks so small. The app journal export (via email) is low resolution.
My intent was to see what’s in store for my workday.
I was playing with my tarot last night and had a thought about interviewing someone for this blog. I’ve thought about doing interviews here for a while — not the “big names” or published authors, but real people doing their own thing, some of whom are now known on the internet. It’s not something I’ve been motivated enough to make happen.
Last night, I thought: “Hey! Why don’t I interview __________?” I started imagining how such an interview would go, then thought maybe it wasn’t such a good idea. I decided to consult the cards about it.
8 of Swords – Empress – Death (Lo Scarabeo Tarot)
My specific question: What will come of my idea to interview ______ for my blog?
I’ll be breaking down this straightforward spread, showing how the tarot gave a pretty clear-cut answer, exploring the Death card and comparing that with the Lenormand coffin.
I have a short work week, due to Labor Day and a vacation day, which give me Monday and Tuesday off. I really needed the time away because I’m stressed out from my new position at work. I asked the cards: What will my work week be like?
36 Cross – 21 Mountain – 26 Book
I am temporarily one-handed, so today’s post is a short audio meditation (recorded yesterday) and inspired by a combination of tarot and Lenormand cards. Think of it as a sampler; I would love to do more of these, in longer format.
One of my readers commented on the fact that she relies on intuition yet for reading the Lenormand, and says that “it’s still hard for me to wrap my head around the idea of NOT using intuition.”
I felt this worth addressing as a short topic of its own. Here is my opinion on Lenormand and intuition.
What does this symbol mean to you?
Yesterday, I took my car to the mechanic for some repairs. It was leaking transmission fluid — again — and I was afraid of experiencing costly repairs. While I was at work awaiting the mechanic’s phone call, I snuck out this quick no-layout style reading, asking what would happen with the car.
13 Child – 14 Fox – 3 Ship – 15 Bear – 27 Letter
I got my long-awaited Old Castle Lenormand deck last night. Yay! I’m not normally drawn to Gothic or dark decks, but I really felt drawn to this one. I think it’s because it has the creepy haunted house vibe; which fits in with my love of Halloween.
Of course I wanted to put this new deck to use, and had time for a super quick daily draw before work this morning. I chose the Fox as a focal point, figuring it would be easiest to put this reading into the context of my job today.

Here is a daily draw of three cards, focusing on my workday.
3 Ship + 30 Lily + 10 Scythe
I like the idea that maybe the Lily shows my fatigue. I was woken up about 5am to clean up after a sick cat. (Our youngest has a sensitive stomach.) I stayed up after that, and my head is rather fuzzy from insufficient sleep — a way of life with these cats, apparently!
