Yoga On The Cards

Last night, I drew a Lennie line of three for today from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2014).  I struggled to interpret them (well, I'm really not a night owl, for one thing) - peaceful news of choices, meditation brings information and choices?

Rider, Lily, Paths
This morning, though, it was much clearer to me.  Yesterday, I did a weights workout dvd without much stretching on it.  I even added in my own stretch at the end, but I still feel stiff today.  At a basic level, then, peaceful movement is a good choice.  Adding in the houses layer:

1) Rider (1) gives 2 - Clover - exercise of short duration.
2) Lily (30) gives 32 - Moon - emotional peace.
3) Paths (22) gives 25 - Ring - commitment to a choice.

Emotionally peaceful exercise of short duration is the choice to commit to.  So, a short yoga practice is called for today :)

    1. It is a gorgeous deck! The artist, Urban Trösch, is incredible, and it's all done on egg tempera - very time consuming but it gives a lovely, luminous look. Will Worthington used it in some of his decks, too :)
      Had a lovely yoga practice, thank you. Hope you had a great start to the week, Catherine!

  3. Your ability to read Lenormand cards continues to amaze me. Your advice sounds like what I tell my meditation students - better 5 minutes every day on the cushion rather than once a month for an hour! :)

    1. Yes, I once had a yoga teacher who said that, if nothing else, you should at least roll out your mat every day and sit on it for 30 seconds. I find, if I get that far, I always go further ;) I think it's the same with the cards, too, little and often is better than just one big reading every month that I promptly forget… :D
