I also decided to draw three cards to look at a focus for today, with the intention that I receive a message about both a spiritual and a more mundane focus. However, when I opened my eyes I saw I'd actually drawn doubles in two positions, so I ended up with a line of five. Here they are from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004):
|Dog, Rider, Snake, Man, Fish.|
At a more spiritual level, I see that there are messages from a friend (the deck), about how to let go (shedding something we've outgrown is a meaning of the Snake given by both Fiechter and Jösten) of a man, and go with the flow of life now. Okay, so that's still about my ex, lol. Seriously, though, I think it's more far-reaching than that. I've been noticing over the last few days the way in which some of my responses, both to the friends who asked for an investment and to my ex, are conditioned. That I have an old tape that says I must be loyal and take responsibility for others. And that's just not true. These are grown-ups, they can take care of themselves. So, I have to let go of that tape, let go of that responsibility, so that I can learn to swim in the river I'm in now.
