Playing-Card Insets: A Challenge Worth Taking

I've been working with the Lenormand cards going on nine years now, but I've never put a lot of effort into understanding and using the playing-card insets. Concurrently, I've been studying playing-card cartomancy somewhat casually, first through Dawn Jackson's Hedgewytchery material and more recently through the excellent blog of Kapherus (J.

This creates an additional narrative path that Matthews suggests can be read as a separate line, after interpreting the pattern in the … Continue reading Counting Round: A Step Beyond

The fact of the matter is that, unless criminal indictments arise from Mueller's document, it isn't likely to be made public. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/justice-department/you-may-be-disappointed-mueller-report-n971601 I decided to do a Lenormand reading using my "Knight's … Continue reading Mueller Madness
