Fuzzy Lenormand

There are those who say that Lenormand readings are very precise.  For myself, I believe that most things humans do are fuzzy.  More than that, it is in the fuzziness that creativity lies.  If there is only one possibility, there is no room for free will, for intuition, or for innovation.  

Anyhow, philosophy aside, this morning I drew a line of three from the Mystical Lenormand (Königsfurt-Urania, 2004):

Bear (Strength/Management/Mothering), Bouquet (Creative/Graceful), Scythe (Break/Make the Cut/Shock)
The first thing I saw here was creative management needs to take a break.  Not having a nine to five job, it's easy for work to leech into the weekend and there are a couple of things I was considering doing today.  However, taking a break sounds like a good idea, too...

Then, I thought about creative mothering making the cut.  A reminder that I can be a good enough mother even when I don't give my children 100% of my attention.  And the more creative I can be, the better I can mother them and have a bit of a break for myself :)

Finally, I saw the suggestion to do something that combines gracefulness and strength, with no shocks.  This is based on the direction of the Scythe, whose blade tip faces into the emptiness beyond the reading, so that the sharp shockingness of it does not touch the two previous cards.  No aerobics, then, with its shocks to the joints; and no lumbering around with heavy weights.  Rather, a mellow cardio-pilates workout with light weights :D

Some good suggestions there for an enjoyable Sunday.  Hope you all have a good one, too!


  1. I agree with you on readings - Lenormand or otherwise. While the cards might seem cut-and-dried in their meanings, humans are much too complex to pin down. I prefer to see possibilities, patterns and options instead of something rigid and unchangeable.
    I hope you found a way to take care of your obligations and do something enjoyable today!

    1. Tee hee, I did, Bev. I read a book on my phone's kindle software while lying in bed with the baby. He stayed asleep longer than normal, and I got some downtime :) I also enjoyed my workout, so it was a good day!

  2. Fuzzy, yes! Much more interesting than defined and bound perimeters.Don't fence me in I say! We are much happier with those possibilities, patterns, and options Bev speaks of in her comment.

    1. Totally agree, Catherine! I don't like being fenced in, nor told that something must be a certain way. Definitely not my experience of anything in life, things are always so malleable. And thank goodness for it, gives us options, if we want to take them! :)

  3. Without creative fuzziness you could let the computer read you cards!
    Creative Mothering: ha ha another word for multitasking (reading and cuddling)
    These interpretations sound like the ingredients of a wonderful relaxed weekend

    1. Quite true, Ellen! I've yet to see a computer program for reading Lenormand cards, more evidence that it isn't as clear cut as some folks make out :)
      And yes, it was a pretty good Sunday, all told :)
      Hugs to you, too!
