The Daily Deskhenge (featuring “The Dust Bunny Lenormand” by Marcia McCord):
Today’s Daily Deskhenge is making use of the wonderful Lenormand deck by Marcia McCord, “The Dust Bunny Lenormand” (http://marciamccordtarotreader.blogspot.com/p/tarot-decks.html). Lenormand decks are cartomancy cards that use specific symbols to mean specific things, unlike the Tarot, which is much more subject to individual interpretation. In this layout, for example, I’m using the classic “pair” of cards to determine what today’s energy is all about: the one on the left represents the “noun” of the pair, and the one on the right represents the “adjective” that modifies the noun. In this case, the card on the left, “Mountain,” represents obstacles, delays, and enemies. So that’s our noun. The card on the right modifies it: the “Heart” is all about what you’d imagine it to be all about: love, romance, passion, happiness, and wishes coming true. In this case, since the cards represent such extreme opposites, and since the adjective modifies the noun, I’d read this as ameliorating the bad news. We will be experiencing negativity today, blockages, delays in promoting the general welfare as it were, but it’s not going to be as bad as it could be. Another potential reading to keep in mind is that this could be a warning about “frenemies.” Frenemies, if you aren’t a devotee of “Jersey Shore,” are those people who pretend to be our friends but who really aren’t. They’re people who are working against us behind the scenes. They won’t do us the honor of challenging us outright to a fair fight; they’d rather snark at us behind our backs and then sympathize with us to our faces. Be careful of these people today. Death by a thousand cuts is still death.
