More winter or early spring?

The weather has been mild over the last few days. Actually, it is quite sunny today and much of the snow has melted. Could it really be an early spring 2019 or does Mother Nature have some surprises yet to come? 

The Groundhog did not see his shadow on Feb 2nd. This suggests an early spring. My mom always said that if Good Friday (GF) is early like in late March then spring comes early. I checked the calendar and GF is mid April after my dad’s birthday so this is a strong indicator that winter could last much longer.  Not everyone has the belief system around GF so I’ll leave it at that.

I pulled three cards asking if we will experience an early spring as predicted by the groundhog. Those silly mice always sneak in there somehow.  🙂 🙂 🙂 

FISH + MOUSE + BOUQUET = 34+23+09=66/12 = Birds (hidden energy)

Keeping the question in mind how does the Fish card reflect the weather. This card is about accumulation in the general sense of the meaning. We are not talking about money in this particular case. The Mouse card minimizes that accumulation. This could be saying that there is a loss in the value regarding the prediction. The Mouse card is ruining what could be a pleasant (Bouquet) outcome. It spoils the overall prediction.

The hidden energy Birds card indicates more worries to come over the weather. Since this card is associated with the number 2, I think we can expect a repeat of winter-like weather as in heavy snowfall and freezing temperatures.  As I write this post, I can hear the birds chirping outside. They are happy the sun is out and that it is much milder. Last week I heard some birds which sounded like a squeaky gate. Mom always said that the squeaky bird sounds was a warning of cold weather to come. I always suspected she was a natural psychic but she would get annoyed with me when I told her that. I think it frightened her. 

The three card reading does not support the prediction of the groundhog. 🙂

  1. Hi Madam Seaqueen,
    Did your prediction ring true?

    As a reader, when I see FISH+MICE, I always read it as the positive. That is, some readers of old see MICE as (and only in combination with FISH) as making back your money, hand over fist; “sh—-ing money”, etc. It’s like the only positive combo of MICE whereby you have the ability to get it back quickly.

    So I would read this throw differently. I’d say that the Spring was arriving quickly and those fast showers would herald mild temps. I don’t know where you’re located but in the NY/NJ area, we had a mild end to Winter, thank goodness, with much needed warm days in March.

    How did the Spring turn out where you are?

    Love the blog. Still follow after eight years or so 🙂

  2. Hi Michele. We have had a late spring. Actually it snowed briefly last day in March. So far this month there was only 2 or 3 warm days which a jacket wasn’t required. The temperature is below normal. Thanks for your interpretation. Interesting though on Fish + Mice. Don’t you read Mice as taking away energy from the card preceding it? If I saw Mice + Fish I’d be more confident that some money is recovered.

  3. That’s a good point.
    I was taught by Treppner years ago. She doesn’t really use right side or left side when certain cards are right next to each other. But each reader is different. Maybe I should do so because I do read sides? Perhaps had I gone so, my interpretation here may have been more accurate.

    • Hi Michele. Each Lenormand teacher has their own take on how to read the cards. It’s good to stick to one system of reading but as a person gets experienced pretty much through trial and error some of those systems become incomplete. I factor in directions for a handful of cards and I look for a deck that reflects those directions. Many cartomancers do not read directions. For example with Scythe card, some readers do not read the way the scythe is facing. The pointed part of the scythe will be much more powerful facing a certain card than the blunt end of the scythe. The blunt end is more of a kick in the butt, lol, which can awaken or bring into focus the card beside it. Sometimes, I read the Mouse card as theft if the adjoining cards point to that. For the most part, it lessens or takes away from the card preceding it. You could take it a step further. If the back end of the mouse faces a card, then it gets pooped on. I dunno what’s right and as you say each reader is different. 🙂

      • The chances of FISH ending up right next to MICE I justify using sheer proximity. But that’s just me. I’ve tried to read your throws before and been totally wrong! lol!!
        Anyway, hope things are getting better 😉
