Asking the gypsy cards: how will job hunting go


Q:
I’d like to know how Job hunting will go.

A:

center-focus card for job hunting: travel
above-thought: hoping for a good arrival
below-undercurrent: jealousy 
left-behind-uncounscious influences: judgement
right-front-conscious act: letter

interpretation

you are already taking a lot of action for job-hunting, every time hoping for a good result, but being disappointed because somebody else was chosen.

unconsciously your inner judge is putting a lot of stress on your process.

it seems the oracle is trying to tell you: hold your horses, take a break, relax…

Only then there will be space for good news

Choosing a Tarot Deck 


So many decks to choose from…

Hard-core traditionalists would prefer old Tarot te Marseille, but I find most old artwork too ugly for my modern senses.

Other Traditional decks: Choose a Deck | Tarot Heritage

On the other hand…modern versions of TDM sometimes diverge too much from the original tradition, almost becoming a Rider-Waite-Smith clone.

Other modern TDM: Marseille inspired Tarot decks

Rider-Waite-Smith…need I say more?
Diverging from de original TDM, heavily loaded with Golden Dawn dogma!

What is less good? RWS clones! 

What is worse? Zombie RWS!

 

THE BARE Bones OF THE ORACLE


Ancient Chinese put their questions in pictograms on tortoise or ox bones, then the diviner would put holes in the bone.
After that, the diviner would apply so much pressure to the bone that it would crack.
The diviner would interpret the cracks and inscribe the result on the bone.

The underliying principle of this oracle is:
Every pictogram might have several meanings depending on context (place in the structured ‘text’), in other words a pictogram had not just one single meaning but several diverging possibilities.
Look at the overall relations between pictograms and ‘connect the dots’ (the pattern of the lines that are formed after the cracks).

This bare bones approach is also applicable in other forms of divination:
– Tasseography :tea-leaf, coffee grounds
Cartomancy.
The idea is just to look at the pictures, the relations between pictures.
Of course, there are many cultural variations on interpretations of the pictures: a wolf might mean something very different, depending on European or Native American outlook!

Wandelen in schoonheid


 

ik wandel  in schoonheid
de schoonheid is voor mij
de schoonheid is achter mij
de schoonheid is boven mij
(vrij vertaald naar Navaho lied)

Ik onderzoek de manier waarop wandelen heilzaam kan zijn voor lichaam en geest.

Zomaar wat zegswijzen die ik tegenkom:
‘Even wandelen, de benen strekken, het hoofd leegmaken’

Als ik echt in volle bewustzijn kan wandelen, dan kan ik mijn eigen lijf en tevens mijn omgeving goed ervaren, mijn relatie met mezelf en mijn omgeving verbeteren.

Als ik dit ook met anderen in dezelfde intentie kan doen, versterken we elkaars aandacht en aanwezigheid!

Interview with a new oracle deck:Tarot de Marseille


Casting of seven cards in a row, reading from left to right:

1. Please tell something about yourself
Denier 6: value for money
2. What is your most important character trait?
Epee 7: Resourcefulness
3. Your strengths as a deck of cards
XVI LaMaisonDieu: Upending stagnation
4. Your weaknesses as a deck of cards
XIIII Temperance: Slow moving
5. What is the best way to work with you?
XI LaForce: Discipline
6. The result of our partnership
Batons 7: Confidence
7. What else do you want to mention?
XVIII LaLune: Heed the visions

Gestalt reading: Denier 6-Epee 7-XVI LaMaisonDieu-XIIII Temperance-XI LaForce-Batons 7-XVIII LaLune.
Four major arcana:
XVI LaMaisonDieu-XIIII Temperance-XI LaForce–XVIII LaLune, the swift harshness of XVI LaMaisonDieu is tempered by the slow moving XIIII Temperance, while the power of the discplinarian XI LaForce is mellowed by the dreamy visionary XVIII LaLune,

Three minor arcana: two sevens (Epee & Baton) & Denier 6, the chancy sevens are grounded in the material world.
The emotional Coupe is missing, but on the other hand there is the dreamy XVIII LaLune.

It seems that here the Major Arcana shows the balancing act of opposite forces, while the Minor Arcana shows the grounding of complementary forces.

Conclusion: I have the feeling that Tarot de Marseille is really willing to work with me.

update…second opinions on the web:

1. The decks is best read using spreads;
2. Best answers positive, pro-active questions ( 7 connected to Chariot, Swords – Thoughts) ;
3. Sees through illusion and deception;
4. Agree with your interpretation;
5.Patience;
6. Agree with your interp.; also i think it will become one of your working decks.
P.s. of course i agree with all your interpretations, but i added where i have other thoughts too.
Enjoy your deck!
….
1. Please tell something about yourself
it’s a new structure
2. What is your most important character trait?
Breakthrough prior boundaries
3. Your strengths as a deck of cards
inspiration
4. Your weaknesses as a deck of cards
Balance takes time
5. What is the best way to work with you?
Discipline
6. The result of our partnership
Provide a whole new perspective
7. What else do you want to mention?
Keep it simple. Some will tell you things not true.

Gypsy cards: my path after pension


reading: lover-merryment–unexpected joy-thought-desire

I preselected the Lover card and only picked 3 cards but then choose another card to see where your Thoughts were going. Merriment can show that you will have a great time, spending time with friends and enjoying company. I will make you happy (Unexpected Joy) and I am wondering if the combo Unexpected Joy and Thoughts can mean that you will have some surprising thoughts (brainstorming, light going on in the brain – een lichtje gaat aan) of what you really want to do (Desire)

Kipper daily reading


7 message-27 unexpected income-34 occupation-20 judication-30home
reading:
it looks like you’ll have a surprise in its way today. When I look at this I see it might be something you were not looking forward to doing. I have the feeling it will be postponed for a while. It seems to be to your satisfaction though.
I also feel this is from the people above.
Anyhow! A good day with a relief surprise
When I see this I think of performance or project reports. 
feedback:
What happened in reality? I went to the barber, several bookshops and did some unwelcome chores at home.
Actually I was involved with a project some time ago but I quit because the conditions not safe enough in the context of covid.
Maybe I will reconnect with that project later next year, maybe I have to find another project with another group.
second opinion:
Somehow, I find 5 cards for a daily reading too many cards and the “cut the deck” method is much reliable- short & sweet. Beside it is a good practice to include it in your extend it readings with all your divination cards.
I can tell first hand this method is probably at least 150 years old.
Beside your interpretation I get another layer of info that is not a mundane activity but more a subject that is very much in the querent`s mind.
There are 2 time cards that shows a permanent development will take place in the next aprox. 2 weeks related to work place and documentations will be processed with legal discussion, advise & expertise.
The change will be permanent and affect the personal situation of the querent.
7+20= documents that have a personal character,
7+27= a contract probably and chained with 34= a work contract and money that have been worked hard for,
the 27+30= unexpected legal talks and advice, etc.
You chain the cards in line and also mirroring them. What does contain the documents?
7+34+20= a work contract that is very personal and affect the private area.
What more? The documents are also about hard earned money:7+27. etc.
The time cards are: 27 & 20.

feedback:
I am preparing for my pension, will have to arrange all relevant documents and cleanup my workspace.
Some legal talks & documentation might be expected to finish this job properly.
