Different Perspectives, Different Selves 2

Last week, I explained a way of using both people cards to look at different aspects of someone's life.  In actually doing the reading, though, the cards had their own idea about what message I needed to hear.  Still, the method is a useful one, so I decided to show it reading for someone else.

Once again, I took all 45 of the Celtic Lenormand cards, shuffled them up and looked for the Lord and the Man cards.  The Lord, in this case, represents the man's work life and the Man his home life.  Then, I laid the two lines of five one above the other, so they can be easily compared.



Burial Mound (Coffin), Sun, Lord, Scythe, Female Rider/ Mice, Owls, Man, Tower, Moon.
Now, I can't go into specifics because of confidentiality questions.  However, the first line clearly shows some big changes in this man's work life, with both the Burial Mound and the Scythe pointing to potentially painful endings.  Still, the Sun suggests this change isn't all bad, and the Scythe partnered with the Rider suggest making a break with old ways of getting messages across.  This is very appropriate for someone who is considering taking his face-to-face business online, due to changes that have slashed the prospects for the work he has, before now, enjoyed. 

In his home life, too, all is not a bed of roses.  Communication with a corporation (Owls/Tower) has been emotionally draining (Mice/Moon).  This is true in two different regards, related to his house and his family situation.  There is a suggestion that poor communication (Mice/Owls) may well be part of the issue, and that the way these corporations are seen has been affected (Tower/Moon), as well as how they see him.  Advice here might involve holding his ground, getting some external support (Tower + Moon - emotional isolation), and communicating more clearly. 

When we compare both lines, a couple of things stand out.  How he communicates is an issue in both, suggesting this is an area to consider and work on more generally.  There is also the question of how much the difficulties in each area affect his responses in the other...

As you can see, this spread gives two different perspectives on a person's life and roles, and comparing how they manage these, the similarities and differences, can add an extra layer.  Do let me know if you give it a try!

  1. I can see now more clearly how this spread was supposed to be. It can also come in handy to compare other aspect of life for instance choosing between two options.

    1. I completely agree, Ellen! Anywhere that you have two aspects, it can be used. As for choices, I actually created a different spread for that, perhaps I'll feature that next week ;)

    1. Well, you could do this with any of the decks that has two versions of the Man and Woman cards. Still, I hope you'll try it with this one :)

    1. I saw - how cool is that! Zanna was one of the twenty two lucky people to receive a review copy from the few decks that were sent air, instead of by sea...
