|Literary project spell|
I created Lenormand spells for both the literary project I want to get a fire lit under, and for improving my eating patterns. I chose the cards based on lines, and then also used them as nine squares for reading, a practice that I'm finding adds interesting dimensions to the spells. These are connections that I often don't foresee when I first choose and place the cards intuitively. Then, I also chose Goddess cards for each spread.
For the literary project, I used the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004). Making an energetic commitment to the project (Ring, Sun, Book), skilful writing brings progress (Letter, Fox, Storks), and creative clarity/guidance is the key (Stars, Bouquet, Key). And the Goddesses I chose from the Goddess Oracle (U.S. Games, 2006) were Brigid (beautiful creative spark and wordsmith), Sophia (for wisdom), and Eurynome (titled ecstasy, which for me touches on both joy in doing, and also a connection to the divine).
White Owl Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2008). Cutting food addictions (Scythe, Whips, Bear), committing to a new sense of harmony (Ring, Child, Lily), and healthy, creative choices (Tree, Paths, Bouquet). Reading the cross corners had an interesting result: cutting cosmetic concerns (Scythe, Bouquet), and focusing on healthy eating (Tree, Bear).
As for Goddesses, I chose mainly moon-based Goddesses, to make the most of the full moon energy. Artemis, for focus and self-confidence. Ix Chel for healing, and creating a web of support. Coatlicue is titled Grief, and maybe there's some of that needing healing… And Corn Woman, for a spiritual approach to self-nourishing.
