Today’s daily Lenormand draw is 34 The Fish and 08 The Coffin. The Fish represents business, commerce and finances, and may refer to a specific business enterprise. I have a love/hate relationship with The Coffin. On the one hand, it is my favorite card in terms of its artistic representation of the ancient Egyptian sarcophagus. But on the other hand, this card scares me a little in terms of it’s symbolic significance.
The Coffin represents endings and major life changes which can seem very negative, or completely out of your control. The interpretation that stands out for me today is the idea of being forced to give up something, and start over. The combination suggests bankruptcy or foreclosure.
I spent yesterday running around town with my friend Kelly looking at houses. If you’ve read my practice reading “Foreclosure?” you’ll know that Kelly is having to let her current home go due to the ridiculous financial burden it has become. I posted an update to that reading describing a happy ending, and I think these cards refer to the dissolution of her current financial obligation. This situation is all we talk about lately, so I’m not surprise that it would turn up in the cards.
I think yesterday’s daily card draw may also pertain to this same situation.
