So, I decided to dedicate every other day of this Lennie Week to this 'charming' oracle (yeah, sorry, couldn't resist). For today, I did a cast with one of Carrie's casting sheets. I think, for future uses, I'd try a shake-and-sprinkle approach, as a shake-and-chuck resulted in quite a one-sided reading both times I did it. On the sheet, each 'House' has a little phrase to describe it - basically, it's like reading a Grand Tableau, but without all the positions filled.

House 2 -What brings luck: Tower+Anchor - working with an institution.
House 3 - What you offer to the journey and it to you: Woman+Coffin - female intuition and endings/women's troubles.
House 9 - The gift you give is: Cross - an ability to bear burdens/faith.
House 10 - Be cautious of: Bear+Sun+Heart - overeating, using up all your energy, and wearing your heart on your sleeve/strong sun and heartburn.
House 11 - How you might be punishing yourself: Ring+Mountain - by committing to tasks that are a real slog.
House 12 - This is what's being said via the air waves: Fish - time to make some money/a fair exchange is required.
House 19 - Self-rule brings: Dog - faithfulness/loyalty to self/good friends.
House 27 - A memo brings: Moon - emotional messages/fame.
Although there's a lot to process there, I really like this casting method. Lots of information, lots of possibilities.
I was definitely struck by the 'what brings luck', having been so involved with working with US Games this last week. And the question of what I offer to the journey and it to me, I like the idea of me offering my feminine intuition, and the journey offering me endings - I'll be glad to finally be able to say I've finished my part of the Celtic Lenormand: it's been a long journey. How I might be punishing myself has a real 10 of Wands feel to it, and I love the message about self-rule. I also laughed at the House 12 message. At first it made no sense to me, but then I saw a post about De Pepi's Magazine being out. I'm an affiliate, so it was a reminder to post about this, as there is, once again, loads of interesting stuff in the magazine. Insights into the forthcoming Whimsy Lenormand, a Japanese Culture Oracle, the Gypsy Palace Tarot, and much more!
I am grateful for endings that are hard-earned.
