Long time, no see, gentle readers! I haven’t done much with cards for a while, and so I haven’t had a lot to write about. My break has been good to refresh my mind and my energy, although I still have many things to juggle right now.

I have a meeting at work this afternoon, and to get some Lenormand reading practice in, I asked about the outcome.

This is the no-layout method, charging the Garden as the keycard to focus the reading. It’s a small meeting but I still think the Garden —  people, public and meetings — is appropriate. I’d considered the Birds but as I might want them to highlight some communication aspect, I felt it best to stick with Garden.

As anyone who’s been reading my blog knows, I’ve been searching for a home to buy, and doing readings related to the hunt for a house. Not all of them have been posted here.

I did finally fall in love with a house. The only downside I could see was its location on a busier street. I did some readings regarding this house and its suitability, and none of them were ever really positive. Cross had shown up to describe this house, even when next to Heart, making me think of “the burden of ownership.”

Garden had popped up a couple of times, and the best I could figure was to relate it to the busy location. The reality turned out to be quite different. The house is settling too much, indicating a likely problem with the foundation. In retrospect, Garden seems a good representative of the foundation itself. In this light, here are two card combinations that came up.


Garden + Mice: something “eating away” at, or eroding, the foundation.


Garden + Bear: the foundation needs to be strengthened; needs a lot of work.

Sometimes readings do make more sense after the fact, and this is one of those cases. The upside of this is that particular pairings will have more meaning for the reader in future. I’ve certainly expanded my repertoire for the Garden card!

Today’s combination:


Anchor + House. The main theme here is the Anchor, and it is modified by the House.

Anchor = work, job. House = home, family.

This could mean a home-based business, or a family-run business.

If I add a third card to the mix:


Anchor + House + Park

The Park (or Garden) suggests the public and social events. Modifying the House, this makes me think of a “public house,” which could be a restaurant or a bed-and-breakfast.

So with these three cards, I could read this as a job in a restaurant. I think it’s equally correct to say a home-based business doing public relations, or event planning. It will depend on the context of the reading as well as intuition.

If you have other thoughts on interpretation for these cards, please leave a comment.
