For this last day, I wanted to come back to Kendra's Vintage Petit Lenormand (2013) again. This time, it's the regular vertical deck, which comes with 67 cards to choose from. There are several variants with a "holiday" theme - Christmas or Thanksgiving, so I guess you could change your deck choices as the seasons roll by. There are also four "Card 37"'s: extra, non-traditional Lenormand cards, which are interesting and cute. Kendra has uploaded a video on using the extra "card 37" cards, which is fun and helpful, though I don't think I will read "Social Hour" quite the way she does... I've made up my personal deck for the moment (could change in the future), with 47 cards. Drawing from that, I got: Social Hour, Mountain, and Water Lily.
Peer pressure blocks us from inner tranquility.
A stony facade hides a passionate nature.
Time spent networking feels like an ordeal, though we know it is required for leadership in a given area.
Cold social relations affect our sense of peace.
Old-fashioned social graces feel like an up-hill battle.
A couple of these speak to me today. I sometimes have that sense of self-doubt raised by the comments of others, blocking me from feeling at ease with myself, as suggested by the first interpretation. And certainly, when those around me seem cold, it disturbs my inner balance. So, these all seem to be about how I connect with others, and what that means to me.
Despite the talk of being self-reliant, and loving ourselves first, I've written before about the importance of inter-connectedness and validation from others. We humans are social creatures! I'll be sure to make an effort today to connect with others, and to validate them.
I am grateful for the people in my life, both near and far.
