Daycard Lenormand 26 may 2020


What will happen today?
First impression..
“after closure getting news of a fresh beginning ..”

Looking back, it is quite easy to make a connection of the oracle with the daily news on the job: Our department will have another reorganisation, meanwhile our director will have his pension.

Looking backwards, it is easy to make the oracle fitting into what happened in the past. The wording of the oracle was vague enough.

To really expand the predictive worth of the oracle, I have to state exacting questions!

“What is closing? What’s beginning?

Sybilla & Tarot connection


Found some interesting research that enables me to make a connection between Tarot and Sybilla decks:

The Sibilla, like the standard playing card deck, is divided into “quattro semi” (four suits): ♠ Picche Quadri,  Cuori, and ♣ Fiori.  Each suit is composed of 13 numbered cards.  The first 10 correspond to the standard playing card pips.  The final three of each suit represent “Il Fante” (Jack), “La Regina” (Queen),” and “Il Re” (King).
The Four Suits of the Sibilla:

The card title refer specifically to the Zingara della Sibilla deck, although most Sibilla very similar.

Picche (Spades): Represent conflict, combativeness, and the ability to fight for a cause, anger, aggression, violence, delays and obstacles, lack of progress, misfortune, pain, illness, disease, instability, mourning, sadness and grief. This suit indicates great mental force and courage.

3 – Il Vedovo 8 – Disperato Per Gelosia 13 – Sacerdote
4 – Ammalato 9 – Prigione

Bomen en bos


In de loop van de tijd heb ik aardig wat orakelkaarten verzameld, maar welke gebruik ik wanneer en waarom?

High-brow: esoterisch, mystiek, ‘high magick’
Tarot:  voor meditaties en magie.

Low-brow: folklore, praktisch, ‘hedge magic’
Lenormand: Situatieschets

Kipper: Onderliggende relaties

Gypsy: Rechttoe-rechtaan directe waarheidszegging

Lange tijd was ik voornamelijk bezig met High-brow en nam ik Low-brow
niet serieus, maar langzamerhand ervaar ik mijn High-brow nogal pretentieus en hooghartig, en waardeer Low-brow steeds meer.

Waarheidszegging


Onlangs herlas ik Pullman’s trilogie: His Dark Materials, en meteen werd ik weer gegrepen door Het Gouden Kompas, de Alethiometer.

Zesendertig symbolen in een kring rondom een kompas, als medium tot waarheidsvinding!

De Egyptenaren deelden de hemel in in 36 Decanen

Maar dichterbij huis herinnerde dit mij weer aan de diverse tradities van kaartleggen; toen ik mij hiervoor begon te interesseren begon ik met gewone kaartspelen, maar ik vond het teveel gedoe om alle lijsten uit mijn hoofd te leren, dus zocht ik naar orakelkaarten met plaatjes:
Lenormand,

Sibylla/Gipsy,

Pixie Tarot.


De eerste twee heb ik in het begin kort verkend, maar de laatste heb ik het meeste bestudeerd en gebruikt.
Door het boek van Pullman heb ik weer interesse gekregen in Lenormand, en naarmate ik me daar verder in verdiep vind ik ook andere kaartlegsystemen uit die periode interessant:
Sibylla/Gipsy,

Kipper!

Er gaat een hele wereld aan orakelbeelden voor mij open!
