What to focus on next week?

I haven't had much time for cards this week, between work, kids, and some stuff that came up on an association I volunteer for.  Today, though, I wanted to draw a few cards to look at the energies for next week.  In particular, I asked about getting some Christmas shopping done, and working on the project that is closest to my heart.


Drawing from the Esmeralda Lenormand, for Christmas shopping I got Mountain, Storks and Ship.  This suggests that obstacles can be overcome by tapping into memories from the past.  That sounds like a good suggestion.  I've been worrying about gifts for my more distant family.  I normally send them chocolates, but worried about doing that, given I'm not currently eating chocolate.  Still, it's become a tradition, and it also harks back to my grandparents, who always gave everyone chocolate.  For other friends, too, perhaps some gifts that remind us of when our friendships began...


As for my favourite project, the cards could hardly be nicer: Rider, Bouquet, Heart.  Creative messages come from the heart!  If I take the time to listen to my emotions, I will find the creative inspiration I need.

  1. Lovey l message for your creative project. This can be so encouraging to get started, to fire up the engine again. I hope you will enjoy working on it
    Does ship also mean memories from the past; "time travel"?

    1. Ship can mean nostalgia - the thoughts that come to us when we journey forward, yet look back. Time travel is an interesting take on that!
      Thanks, Ellen, I shall certainly try to enjoy it, and work on it :)

  2. I think your wonderful, optimistic attitude will help you climb that mountain easily and then ride like the wind with your creative project in tow. :) There is a lot of moving, growing, birthing, burning energy in those cards, so you should have what you need to get your where you want to go. Good luck!

  3. Beautiful Deck! Christmas shopping is light years away for me. I'm glad I don't have to have to shop! I got off the merry-go-round of the " Shopping Mal Merry" years ago! I avoid them like the plague!

    I'm sure you creative project will be very satisfying for you. I make my Christmas gifts which makes me feel good.

    1. Ha ha, well, I avoid shopping malls, too. I do most of my Christmas shopping online, that way they often do the posting, too, as I have family spread out around Europe…
      Making your Christmas gifts sounds wonderful. I don't feel there's anything I make that is nice enough to gift to others :(
