So, I admit when I pulled Cross I thought, 'UGH' and shoved it back into the deck. I shuffled again and pulled a card out. Guess what I got? Cross again. So I sighed in resignation and pulled it out. Then I pulled a second card to complete my duo and received Rider.
'Oh no!' That's what my anxious, feverish brain exclaimed when it saw this duo. What does it mean? Bad news? Usually when I think like this it's my anxiety and not my intuition. That's what I'm telling myself, anyway. I looked at the pull for a bit and then went over to Learn Lenormand to see the brief but sometimes thought-provoking keywords they provide on two card combinations:
Cross + rider (1): help is on its way, destined visitor
Oh. I felt a bit relieved. That's not really what I expected to see. Admittedly, I'm still a neophyte when it comes to the Lenormand system. I know that the Cross, while it can mean trouble or hardship, does not necessarily mean that. Here are some meanings I've come across:
So, then I looked at Faery Godmother Fortunes and saw their interpretation:
- Something destined
- Something unavoidable
- A crossroads
Rider/ Cross- a visit to more than one place or multiple visits
And from Cafe Lenormand:
Cross + Rider: Painful visit, assistance
Hrm. I'm still not sure what to think. As with all readings, it's best to just take note of it and not worry about it or overthink it. The best readings happen when you're able to detach from them.
See you all next week. I'm going to be visiting with family and then my hubby's birthday is on Friday.
