|Gentleman, Mountain, Stork, Birds, Fish|
Man has come next to, or near Mountain before, too. This time, I see it somewhat differently, inspired by one of the keywords on the Mountain card here. The past of this situation is that I had to deal with an intimidating man. Not that Will Worthington is intimidating as a person, more his reputation. It was tough for me to approach him, THE Will Worthington, as just some woman with an idea for a deck. Still, he was really nice about it, took the project on its merits, and is thoroughly down-to-earth and easy to communicate with.
Stork in the centre position says that this is something which will bring change, growth, a "new addition to the family". That's a new addition to my family and Will's family, as this is our project, our baby (though he has rather more "kids" than I do). And also a new addition to the Lenormand family :)
As for the future, Birds and Fish recommend communication for making money. Straight away, I thought about networking! I've been doing a lot of that the last few days, spending hours on Facebook that I wouldn't normally spend. Still, especially if we do go the self-publishing route, having built up a community of people interested in the deck will be vital.
In this combination I also see support for my wish to teach Lenormand classes. That is another form of communication with a group that will also help make money. Both directly, in getting paid for classes, and indirectly in creating word-of-mouth about the deck, which I will use in my presentations as soon as images are available.
So, I shall use that Alchemist energy from earlier to approach some occult stores and see about hiring a space to teach Lenormand classes, hopefully with some advertising support from them...
