(As a side note, drawing six cards made me think about the tradition of drawing uneven lines. Yet, in the Grand Tableau, the "most traditional" version is the 8x4+4 method, giving an even line. And many traditionalists argue that you should never consider a Lenormand card individually, and yet they do just that with the middle card as theme! There's no reason you can't consider the centre two cards as the theme, so that's what I've done here.)
These are the cards, shown here with the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004):
|Heart, Dog, Bear, Rider, Clover, Owls|
I have been feeling almost angry, and certainly anxious, about my emotionality (such as crying when trying to shop on amazon for a dvd for my own mother for Christmas). Yet, that is also a resource to tap, if I choose to see it that way. My emotions are far closer to the surface, far stronger, so I can hopefully learn from them more easily than if they were buried deep.
There are a lot of emotions in me around pregnancy and motherhood: it hasn't been an easy path for me so far. Yet, I want this time to be different. I see here, too, a message that small changes can make a huge difference. This isn't a spread full of big, obvious cards - Ring, Child, Storks, Coffin, or Tree, for instance. It is about staying loyal in the day-to-day, accepting small joys when they come, feeling my anxiety and learning from it, looking for subtle messages from my body and in my life.
I appreciate the reminder that I need to listen inwardly, pay attention to small signs, and give time to both my children - the one who more obviously needs it, and the one who is not yet able to ask for what is needed. That I should show a loyal love to this pregnancy, to myself as being pregnant, even if in small and subtle ways like taking aspirin daily and making sure I snooze if I need to. I shall certainly do my best to heed the cards's wisdom :)
