This week, I wanted to demonstrate one of the spreads I created specifically for the Celtic Lenormand. This nine card Triple Goddess spread is designed to seek advice from spirit, looking at what inspires us (Maiden/Songbirds), what we can create (Mother/Chickens) and what guides us (Crone/Owls).
It's laid out as a line of nine. You can use the three Bird cards as anchor points/significators in positions 2, 5 and 8, and I've added a card on top of each of those, which is optional. It would also be possible to use any deck for this spread, simply keeping the Goddess positions in mind in the same way you can use Houses without needing a card to represent them. If you're not sure what I mean by that, check out this reading I posted last year :)
|Nine Card Triple Goddess Spread|
If I were reading this at an everyday level, I would see a logical approach to finances inspiring the end of a partnership, which could create the need to seek reliable information to guide a new venture. That reading is actually relevant to my week, as I have to make an assessment on two tenders the company I work for has received to change their accountants.
Now, although the fundaments of the message are similar, I see a call to actively go in the direction spirit is currently directing me, even if it means breaking a previous commitment. Sometimes, if the road ahead is blocked, it is because we are called on to find a different path. And I hope I will fulfill that commitment, just at a later time. For now, being more playful and getting out of my comfort zone is closer to what my soul's journey calls for.
This makes perfect sense to me. Last week, I was feeling very blocked and confused in a project which is deeply important to me. While I don't like breaking commitments, even to myself, the advice to challenge my comfort zone and find a way to be more playful, too, will hopefully help me align better with spirit and move forward in a slightly different direction...
