Question? Will R. ask Veronica out on a date within the next week or so.
Vertical Row #1-Cards 1,5,8 describe the recent past-the last few days or the recent circumstance around your question.
Dog 18 Clover 2 Child 13- Veronica experienced a brief connection with someone new (R) and that is the reason she is asking the question. Dog & Clover can suggest a fleeting or passing opportunity.
Vertical Row #2-Cards 2, YOU, 9 describe the now-what is going on with you -your thoughts and feelings.
Bear 15 YOU-Veronica 29 Fox 14- Veronica is overprotective of her feelings (bear) and is suspicious, not in a trusting mood (fox) right now.
Vertical Row #3-Cards 3,6,10 describe the immediate future, a day or so. These cards will tell you what to anticipate.
Cross 36 Ship 3 Key 33- The cross is not always a welcome card. When it is beside the ship (movement, travel) it prevents or delays. The key card shows a definite answer to her question. If he doesn’t call and ask her out for a date-that is her answer.
Vertical Row #4-Cards 4,8,11 describe soon, less than a week. It’ll give you an answer to your question.
[note: correction Vertical Row #4 should read 4, 7, 11]
Bouquet 9 Broken Mirror 8 Tree 5- The broken mirror basically says it all. She can expect a disappointment whether R. asks her out or not. The bouquet is a pleasing card usually, indicating a fondness but next to the broken mirror (coffin card in most Lenormand decks) there will be an ending to the potential of anything growing (tree) or branching any further.
*The middle horizontal Row- Trigger cards*
Clover 2 Veronica 29 Ship 3 Broken Mirror 8 – The trigger line suggests she had short encounter in the past, and there is distance between them which eventually will lead to a dead end. The distance is because they are not an item yet.
Keeping the meanings nice and simple can still give you a general feeling of the outcome. There are many combinations in this layout as well that can be considered. I think Veronica would be setting herself up for an emotional fall (cross & broken mirror). She is overly affectionate (dog & bear) or too needy for attention. She wants someone to protect her (child & fox). And that is precisely why she attracts males that end up exploiting her (fox & tree) life force- sucking her energy. Sometimes the ship card can indicate the desire of getting away or thinking about escapism. The crosss & ship suggest anguish- a yearning heart. Another test(cross) for her to work through and figure out (key). The broken mirror can also suggest a shattered self- image or the inability to see the totality of the entire situation around her question. A distortion- leading to a distorted desire for an answer.
