I was looking over some of my Lenormand posts that I have linked to the cards + meanings in the tab under the header called “Lenormand”. There are a few cards that I did not link to detailed posts, and #30 is one of them, The Lily. Actually I did write about it when it was in combination with other cards but perhaps not as a stand alone card. Thanks Noelle for sending me an email pointing out that a few links were not functional. I have since corrected this.
King of Spades – The Lily.
Traditionally, this card is about a harmonious influence, the family and an older loving man which the King of Spades is rarely associated with. Many of the European sites suggest a sexual connection with this card as well.
The cards will lend a “helping hand” or support to the neighboring cards. Here is an energy that you would want as a contributing factor in a layout especially if it follows those “bad” cards. In one word – encouragement. There is wisdom and experience contained within the card’s essence.
Combinations to consider:
- Next to the Stork, #17 being on the right side or beneath, it signifies the return of an old flame. Look to the card following the Stork to see what will materialize. Is it the Scythe? (the whole thing blows up in your face) Is it the Clover? (nothing permanent will occur) Is it the Cross? (unfinished Karma)
- Coupled with the Child it foretells of a new love or relationship. It is important to consider the following cards to see what happens. The same applies here as with the Stork + Lily combo. There are many other cards as well that will usually give you a specific direction.
- With the Fish card there is a promise of a growing bank account or steady improvement in finances. Possibly investments with a good return. Also with the Anchor card- securing a job with room for growth within the company.
- Near the Heart, an admirer. The Book nearby – a secret admirer. Does this admirer profess his/her love? (look for the Key or Letter cards) Will the admirer remain a secret? (look for the Mountain or Coffin cards)
Spiritually – beside the Snake the suggestion is that the Kundalini energy has been activated. I would recommend that you do not play around with the energy of Kundalini unless you are absolutely sure that you can handle it or are receiving assistance from a more experienced practitioner. This meaning is only applicable if you are looking at the cards on another level. In a more mundane explanation the Lily + the Snake would suggest a powerful sexual attraction or experience. You know the kind that knocks your socks off. :) :)
