I received an email from Lady J. using the following cards in the —–> Heart Layout (instructions). The deck she is using is the Lenormand by Carta Mundi Dutch version.
bear dogman – clouds – womanheart bouquetColumn 1: what’s on his mind BEARThe male possesses strength of mind. Thoughts on money issues. He appears to be passionate in all he does.MAN: gentleman in questionHEART: what he facesHis thoughts are on an emotional situation/relationship. To him it is in the early stages of development (Jack of Hearts) and he isn’t the type of man to be rushed (Bear)Column 2: what’s on her mind DOGLady J. is thinking about a person who is a friend right now. She seems to be loyal in her mind towards this person.WOMAN: Lady JBOUQUET: what she facesLady J. could experience some rewards from this possible connection. Perhaps a gift. Her approach to relationships is not flippant. (Queen of Spades)Center: Outcome card CLOUDS.The outcome appears to be foggy about the direction in which the connection between Lady J and the Gentleman will unfold. It may not happen too quickly. The King of Clubs inset in this particular deck is facing to the right. He is looking at the Lady card (woman). The clouds seem to be on the right side of the card in this deck although I can’t quite tell as I don’t have the actual card in front of me. I am looking at the cards in the link above. One part of the Gentleman in question is interested but his attention currently is focused on money. (Bear)Lady J. asked my in the email if this Gentleman is interested in the female depicted in the Bouquet card (Queen of Spades). I didn’t get the feeling he was and besides that the Queen is looking to the right of the layout indicating she probably wouldn’t be interested in the Gentleman.
Note: The Gentleman and Lady are not always facing to the right or to the left. Some decks they face forward. If your intuition tells you to read the directions then do so by all means. I don’t always factor the direction when reading the Significator cards but more times than not I consider the playing card insets.
