Psychic Fair

I have read cards for about 32 people at a psychic fair today; one card for each person. I like doing one-card readings on fairs. It is helpful to reduce an issue to what is really important before drawing the card.

There were many people, many stories. Impressive, the courage people have in living their lives, how they aim to make good decisions in their situations, for jobs, education, and on finding a partner, and how they care for their family, kids, partners and themselves.

There is another day tomorrow and I am tired now. Yesterday I have had a course in Amsterdam and now a whole weekend fair, that is pretty much. The date for the fair was changed and I still agreed on coming which was not the most sensible thing to do, I have had sleepless nights about it, but I think I’ll do all right tomorrow.

Pumpkin Spread, Card 7: Lovers

I am doing a Pumpkin Spread. Still in the mood of Halloween.These are the positions.

1. Cutting out and removing the lid: What you need to temporary lift to enable you to see yourself clearer?
2. Scooping out the pumpkin: What you need to work hard on or work through?
3. The seeds you reveal: How you can grow? Your potential?
4. The flesh you remove: The obstacles in the way to let you grow?
5. The hollow: You darker self. What is within you that remains unseen?
6. The carving: What you need to pay attention to?
7. The candle: How you can best shine? Your postives? How to reveal your darker self?
8. Replacing the lid: How you will feel more content? The improvement you will notice?
9. Placing the pumpkin in the window: How others will see you and respond?

The question of today was position 7 of this spread, inspired by the candle: “How can I best shine? My positives? How to reveal my darker self?” The answer I got was Grail Two. I found that surprising because I have pulled The Lovers for the card of the hollow of the pumpkin: my darker self (what remains unseen). Grail two has the same ‘love-theme’. It is reciprocity: telling each other our days, doing things we both love and can talk about, feeling supported (while I support back). All that makes me shine, and gives me joy.

I have pulled The Lovers for the card of the hollow of the pumpkin: my darker self, what remains unseen. Grail two has again the ‘love-theme’. It is reciprocity what makes me shine: telling each other our days, doing things we both love and can talk about, feeling supported (while I support back). All that makes me shine, and gives me joy. If it is not there, 'the lovers card' in my real life stays in the dark. But the dark hollow can also mean that I take that for granted, that I undervalue it.

Psychic Fair Revisited

Remarkable of today’s fair was that was that I met two church-people there. New Age and church are different circuits here; it is rare I meet people from the church on these fairs, and it was great meeting them. We interchanged email addresses because we might mean something to each other. One of them stood right next to me. Such a coincidence!
