Here we have another deck from Brazil, this time called the Tarô Cigano (Gipsy Tarot) rather than the Baralho Cigano (Gipsy Deck). However, it's still pretty much a Lenormand, no matter its name.
(P.S. I source these Brazilian decks through De Keizerin in Holland, very friendly and helpful).
mentioned before, in terms of images the only real difference between
this and a regular Lennie is in card number 2. In the European
tradition this is a Clover and associated with luck (though generally
small or fleeting). In the Brazilian tradition, the card shows logs
blocking a path and is associated with difficulties and obstacles. This
time, we get to see that, as today's line is Logs, Paths, and Lily.
Difficult choices bring harmony.
Choose between strife and peace.
A walk uncovers problems, which an elder can help resolve.
when I first drew these, I felt the first sentence was most likely to
be relevant to me today. Re-reading them, though, a variant of all of
them seems like it could come into play. As I mentioned on Sunday, I've
been feeling an internal pressure to clarify my path in life. This is a
tough choice, and in some ways choosing my dissertation feels harder
because it doesn't inspire me much, yet easier as it fits with societal
norms. This afternoon, my Dear One and I have scheduled a walking date,
out on the local Heath. Perhaps my beloved will help me gain a little
inner calm talking it through on our walk...
I am grateful for a companion to walk this path with.
