Lenormand Yes or No: Artistic Commissions


Lenormand Yes or No Answer: YES!
Update: Yes, this was absolutely true. It happened the same day I did this!

So, I felt like blogging so I decided to come back. Woohoo? Anyway! I decided to make a new blog segment called 'Lenormand Yes or No' and so here's my first post under that heading.

I asked whether I would get any more hand-painted necklace commissions before the cut-off date of December 9th. I received, as my answer, the Ship and Stars as a pair. It looked auspicious to me, but I recognize readings can be interpreted in many ways. I see Ship as something coming in. Goods, services, things arriving, people, and so forth. Stars is something destined, sometimes luck itself,  recognition, the green light in career, and other auspicious-sounding things.

If you take it super literally you may limit your interpretation--as a trip or fated meeting or something else involving an exchange or delivery. This could be a clue, as well. I may get a commission that I have to ship. Get it? I am offering free shipping in the continental U.S., so maybe this is a nod to that.

In any case, that's that for now. My goal is to update these as soon as I learn anything.

Sending y'all love,
MM

The Action Duo: Forward Motion


I wasn't sure if I wanted to post today or not, but I decided to go ahead and a pull a couple of cards from the Albano-Waite Mini. I love this deck for no particular reason. I guess the weird colors and the backs appeal to me. And its diminutive size, of course.

So this duo brought to mind taking action and charging forward with an idea. It carries a lot of fast, creative energy. When pulling this duo I was thinking about whether to move forward with various little ideas, as I feel sort of hesitant about a few things. I am considering changing some things up, maybe trying other things, doing something new. This seems fairly supportive of that, or maybe it's just saying I'm a hothead? In any case, there it is.

Love,
MM

Hathor: Vulnerability of Receptivity


Here is a repeat theme I've been getting in readings recently: receptivity. Allowing things in. Allowing yourself to receive, to heal, to hear inner messages. To slow down. To be more yin.

I like this card, and it cracks me up with the waterfalls flowing out of her breasts. Haha! Anyway. It's true, isn't it? If we don't refill the well or if we feel detached, disconnected and unsupported...well, we can't really get that far when we feel that way. We need others to survive. We're all interconnected, even though we may need alone time. I try to remember this when I struggle to receive payment for services, or feel guilty or confused about something that I want to do/get. I think we're taught not to be greedy or to want things.

Plus, as the title of my post suggests, we are vulnerable when we allow people in. Information, exchanges, gifts, and the like all open us up. But vulnerability is the magic ingredient that dissolves shame, as Brene Brown would say. Open your hand and see what comes in to fill it.

Love,
MM
