The Power of Tarot
The Le Normand oracle cards stand at a three way intersection of tarot cards, playing cards, and Madame Le Normand’s own unique and original intuitive gift. There are just 36 cards in the deck but the imagery covers all the major themes of human life within its simple, day-to-day symbols. I’ve discovered that journaling is a great exercise to do with Le Normand. The evocative images seem to lend themselves to self exploration. The images are easy to interpret and are extremely flexible in what they encompass.
Our interpretations today are inspired by the Dreaming Way Le Normand, by Lynn Araujo. Let’s open the deck and see what they have to reveal to us now!
October 20 – Sunday
“The only way to have a friend is to be one.”-Emerson
This is a card of joyful, unconditional love. The dog is pictured with sincere, steady brown eyes shining with loyalty and friendship. Whoever this card signifies to you, whether co-worker, friend, lover, spouse, or family member, they have proven their love and devotion. They can be trusted. This card depicts a true give and take relationship. The boy on the card trusts the dog, and the dog equally trusts the boy.
Question: Who is this in our lives? Do we give too much in the relationship? Or do we need to let ourselves receive more from them?
October 21 – Monday
“I do believe in an everyday sort of magic- the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places….”-Lint
This card speaks of a special place we know to go to in order to connect with others. The others could be people, animals, or friends in the spirit realm. It is communities, support groups, cultural, or educational colleagues. Some places are truly permeated with special energies! We can also create the special energies by the quality of our consciousness when we visit there.
Question: Where are our sacred turfs? How can we be there more often? What will it do for us that otherwise wouldn’t occur?
October 22 – Tuesday
“Birth… is exchanging nothing for the possibility of everything.”-Dixon
There will be an important development today. Expect major changes. Similar to an actual birth, this usually signifies a development brought about by careful planning, patience, and long labor. Productivity will result in tangible transformation. We could feel a sense of “arrival” in a place that is important to us. It could be a location, a position, or a state of consciousness.
Question: When I visualize a state of “arrival” where is it? What does it look and feel like?
October 23 – Wednesday
“For my part, I know nothing with certainty, but the sight of stars makes me dream.” -Van Gogh
If success has appeared elusive, today’s draw tells us that what we really want is truly attainable. This card encourages us to explore new paths, trusting that the Universe has amazing things in store. Stars have provided guidance to people since the beginning of time. The simple design on this card, an indigo background loaded with stars simply tells us to reach out for one today.
Question: What would you really, really want to do if you knew you could not fail? (Deep down you know what it is!) Is the risk really that unmanageable?
October 24 – Thursday
“Our nettlesome task is to discover how to organize our strength into compelling power.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
The bear sagaciously strokes his chin. His eyes gleam with an idea. His look is level and direct. He knows he is formidable. The bear represents a resourceful person whose strength protects us. This card tells us to heed the advice we have recently been given on an issue important to us. The bear offers safety and security if we do so. Bears protect their own.
Question: Whose advice have I shrugged off recently to my own detriment? How is mastery of detail actually mastery of life? What detail do I need to tweak in order to have more security and power?
October 25 – Friday
“Birds sing not because they have answers but because they have songs.”-African Proverb
There will be conversations, news, discussions- all kinds of verbally transmitted ideas today. Before reacting in a positive or negative way to any of them, discern the source and motivation behind the words. Some of it will be valuable advice and counsel. Some will be manipulation toward various ends. Some of it will be “chatter-addiction”. The card tells us to keep our eyes open to symbols and signs from the Universe about what to respond to and what to step back from.
Question: How can I pause today for more objectivity to discern the truth about an important situation I currently have going on?
October 26 – Saturday
“Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the wind in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”-Mark Twain
This card indicates an exciting and profound journey in outer, or inner realms! We must simply know that we have the permission and freedom to make our own choices and navigate as we see best today. The picture on the card, an ornate sailboat traveling in a wash pan, alludes to the fact that it isn’t the distance traveled that makes a journey worthwhile, but the quality of our observations and experiences, even if they take place within one block. Storm clouds will always be on the horizon. Don’t let that stop you from venturing creatively forward!
Questions: Which have been my favorite inner and outer journeys? What made them that way?
The Spiral Spread
This spread celebrates the circular nature of growth. This doesn’t mean that growth and change doesn’t move us forward, but that they are a process of two steps forward, and one step back. It’s not a straight line ahead and, maybe, it isn’t meant to be. Slow development brings about stability. When we pause before the next better or higher step and look back, we can better appreciate our progress.
Browse through the deck and choose a card to be your significator, one that resonates with you and the issue at the forefront of your mind. Place it in a central position before you.
Then, shuffle and lay the cards face down on the table. Pull nine more cards at random and arrange them spiraling clockwise direction outward from the significator. Ask what you most need to be told about the situation that concerns you most. Turn each card over individually, meditating on what the image is telling you about your concern. Continue in a spiral direction, turning the cards over one at a time.
A story will unfold, giving you insight into possible actions which will bring solutions to your problem.
