Tea Leaf Fortune Cards for March
I do so love this deck. I like to post with it, almost more than any other deck I have. I do go through phases with my decks, as you may have noticed from my recent run with the Energy Oracle.
I admit I was a TOUCH nervous to pull cards for March, maybe because March is my birthday month and I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my birthday. I need to let that one go, I think. Hahaa. I think being too focused on things going perfectly can backfire. I guess I just don't like bad news. Who does? Even if you get bad news, whether it's from someone else, from life in general, or from an oracle deck, that doesn't doom you to misery. You always have a choice of how you respond to life's twists and turns. And it's OK to freak out and complain at times. Things eventually do balance out, unless you refuse to allow balance.
On to the cards. The first card flipped out, which is Handshake. This card is about an important meeting and connection with someone who is beneficial to you. I like that. It isn't an offensive card. Hahaa. The card directly beneath Handshake, which is Ring, reminds me a little bit of the Handshake card. It also points to a beneficial collaboration. I see these as being connected.
The other two cards are 'Bell' and 'Feather'. Bell is neutral, simply an announcement of some sort. It could be anything--but usually it's something notable, not just, 'I have hemorrhoids'. Sorry. That was a really awful example, but I guess it serves its purpose in banality. I do associate the bell with weddings, because it's such a common wedding symbol.
The Feather card is saying that someone is not dependable, and something you thought would go through may not. I've gotten this card before, and in that case, someone acted interested in getting a small commission from me for a necklace and never followed through. This could be a similar situation.
Looking at the entire spread together, with Bell, Ring, Feather and Handshake, it makes me think that maybe it's talking about a specific and particular situation. The wedding theme comes up again as a possibility, as the Bell+Ring really spells wedding to me.
I sure hope this isn't saying that the gift baskets I'm planning to make for a friend's wedding will end up not going through for some reason. I will certainly keep that under advisement. Otherwise, I will see how else this might play out.
