Waiting for an Offer Reading from Last Week

I pulled these cards last Thursday, a little over a week ago, just before putting the house on the market. When I look at these in light of that action, I could speculate that they might mean something like:

"Patience (Temperance) and intuitive understanding (High Priestess) will lead to an offer (Ace of Pentacles) and ultimately a happy outcome for your family (10 of Cups)." 

But I didn't actually bother to interpret these cards. Haha! I just gave them a cursory glance and then went on with the house prep chaos. I guess that's the benefit of looking over readings later. That's why I continue to do tarot blogging. That, and the sense of blogging community.

As it stands now, we have an offer that's (allegedly) going to be put on the table on Tuesday after the potential buyers get financing lined up and the Labor Day holiday is over. So...we shall see.

Much Love,

Basket: Positive Recognition

I wanted to see something encouraging when I did this pull, and I did! After a slow start and mediocre feedback, I was given a pep talk by my realtor who said that things will pick up dramatically in September because it always did. She explained that July and August were the slowest months for her, and to keep my head up. So...that is what I am planning to do.

August and September Tea Leaf Fortune Cards

I decided to whip out the ole Tea Leaf Fortune Cards and do a pull for the months of August and September. Of course, August is almost over, and I already did a reading which included August, but I thought I'd make this the latter part of August into September. In that reading regarding July and August, my realtor's significator card came up, which immediately made both my husband and I think we might end up selling after all, somehow. We did, so here we are.

This reading appears to be a bit mixed, but nothing too horrible. Hah! On the less positive side we have the Purse card, cautioning us to pay attention to our finances, which is something we always have to do, especially during such an expensive transaction as house selling/buying. Ram shows up with its stubborn and aggressive behavior (who this is referring to I can't be sure yet).

Otherwise the reading isn't too bad. With good luck, wish granted, and good fortune as some of the main meanings in this pull, I can't complain too much. The Lily is an unusual card. I never quite feel connected to it. Though it's not a negative card by any means, so I am cool with it.

In any event, there it is...and I hope things do go relatively smoothly over this next month or so.

Breaking Free: Changing My Thinking

Here is a card I pulled just a bit ago. I didn't really have a question--I just felt run down, moving obsessed, and in need of some sort of guidance or affirmation. I think this is a good one. Its message did resonate with me.

I have felt tied down and restricted by this house thing, even though it also represents freedom (from the commute) but I keep getting all twisted up in the details, the semantics. The worries about selling the house for a high enough price--about timing, about finding a house in our price range with tight inventory where we're moving. Etc! any given moment I can free myself from this worry. I can break free of it. It's just thought, after all. It doesn't matter if it's true or not. The point's something that I can stop doing.

Conclusion and Be Back Soon

Hello Lovely Folk,

It has been a week since I've posted last so I thought I'd do a quick post. Here is a card I pulled from the Wisdom of the House of Night Oracle app on my phone.

I thought it was fairly apt, considering we're moving to another city and have to wrap things up with that. We finished the staging, the photography, the cleaning and weeding and organizing (you know, as much as one can--there's always more to do), and now we just have to keep everything pristine until we sell.

I may be rather busy the next few weeks or so, considering the move, plus my daughter's school re-starting. I'll be volunteering again plus doing house hunting with my realtor and there are also a few school activities coming up.

Oye! I am not really one who likes being busy. I mean, I like being somewhat busy, but not too busy. I guess really I am not super busy but I guess I feel a little frantic from all the goings-on. If that makes any sense.

So, I'll be back sometime in the next week or two to update!

Love to y'all,

Interesting Pull of Six

I pulled these yesterday and here are my thoughts on them:

Coins: I guess this makes sense. My parents are loaning us the money to cover expenses such as earnest money and inspection fees for the house hunt.

Hammock: Taking a vacation. This one makes less sense, but maybe not. Maybe this shows a break in the action somewhere for a very brief respite. I don't know! I know we have a day date planned at the end of the month, unless we end up needing that day for moving purposes.

Bell: Announcement. Well, this could be announcing our house for sale next week, certainly. Among other things, I guess!

Pig: This is funny. I guess we should beware of greed! Either in our house search or with finances or something else. I can actually understand why that would come up. I know when looking at houses you really have to be open-minded and not too greedy about the process.

Broom: I guess this one is pretty specific and self-explanatory. It came up twice in doing readings yesterday.

Heart: This is a sweet card. I like that it's next to the Broom card, showing loving a new house, perhaps. Gosh, I hope that's the case!

Of course, there are numerous ways to read this. It's not a spread so it could be read any way you want. I try to stay open and not too rigid about how I interpret where things might be. I will come back and look at this in another week or two and I imagine it will make even more sense then.

Much Love,

Purchasing House Duo: Hard Work and Staying the Course

Here's a card duo I pulled from the Tea Leaf Fortune Cards this afternoon, regarding purchasing a house in the town we're moving to. We are more concerned about purchasing than selling, due to the real estate climate being favorable toward sellers.

This duo makes sense right off the bat, I think. Table is hard work--which shows it may not be easy to find a property in our price range that we won't be outbid on, and the Mountain Road card shows success...IF...we follow a careful, prescribed formula for how to get there, and don't deviate from that. It's a cautious duo. Cautiously optimistic, perhaps, but not easy.

Fingers crossed,
