Lenormand Meanings for Love & Relationships

The Lenormand system of divination based on playing cards keeps gaining popularity so it seems timely to introduce these cards here, with meanings that are specific to love & relationships. If there is an interest in studying the Lenormand cards, please let me know in the comments below. I’m quite happy to add Lenormand card meanings and combinations to our vast and ever-expanding metaphysical online library. The following keywords relating specifically to love and relationships are meant as additions to the standard nouns and adjectives for each card (2-3 of each), so if you haven’t sorted out what those are yet, I suggest you do so first.  There are quite a few free Lenormand learning resources you can Google if you do not wish to invest in a book.   I recommend downloading Sandy Cristels FREE Interactive Lenormand for learning purposes. For those of you looking for something to hold in your hands, I recommend The Enchanted Lenormand kit which includes a phenomenal introduction to the Lenormand by one of the main authorities on card divination, Caitlín Matthews, as well as a pretty and easy-to-read-with Lenormand deck. Please bear in mind that the Lenormand cards are always read together with other cards. Each card is a ‘cipher’ with different possible meanings and gains its precise meaning in synthesis with other cards. The cards also operate on the near vs. far principle and the meanings change accordingly. It is a complex system to learn so be patient with yourself and allow your learning to take as long as it takes. It’s all good as long as you’re having fun!

The Soul Mate Excuse

The Soul Mate Excuse

“But he is my soul mate!” “I can’t be with anyone else, because we are Twin Flames and have important work to do!” “He’s just on the run because he’s so afraid of the intensity of our connection. That often happens in soul mate relationships, you see.” “He’s my Twin Flame and just needs to work through some stuff, then my life will begin.” “He’s treating me like crap but we are soul mates and I think I’m burning off some bad karma.” “If I only try harder, I’ll be able to read his mind like a proper soul mate should.” “I will never experience love like this again because he was my soul mate.” Trust me, I’ve heard them all and then some! Here’s the thing ladies: He’s just not that into you if he is a) not there or b) not returning your messages or c) treating you like crap… So tell me again how it matters that he is your Soul Mate/Twin Flame? Let’s apply some logic to these situations. Yes, we have brains for a reason. While we should indeed follow our hearts in love, we are not called upon to abandon reason. In love, the decisions we make need to be aligned between heart, mind and gut in order to yield lasting and mutually beneficial results. First of all, can you even be sure that he is a soul mate? What makes you so sure? Fair enough if you have past life memories of sharing one or more lives with this person and you both instantly knew that you were soul mates. But if it’s above average chemistry it could be pheromones, a cheeky smile, a washboard stomach or wicked tongue action rather than a true soul mate connection. Cupid is funny like that. Secondly, even if you have shared past lives together and come from the same soul group… so what? You can’t know exactly why your paths have crossed in this incarnation and you have LOTS of soul mates… You won’t sleep with or be in a relationship with every single one of them – not even the eligible ones that you have chemistry with. A soul mate is just someone you have a past with and that you keep bumping into on the other side in the life between lives. There is never any guarantee that you will have a future together in any given incarnation. And if it is your Twin Flame (because you just know, not because some oddball psychic told you), yes… then you will be together. When the time is right, which could very well be 20 incarnations from now, when both of you are ready. The time perspective we need to bear in mind is eternity. Oh and in case you were wondering… Soul Mates and Twin Flames have free will too. You can’t shackle them with...
