This morning I pulled 3 cards for inspiration and guidance, and I drew card 16 The Star, card 27 The Letter and card 29 The Woman.
The combination of The Star and The Letter indicates some very good news on the way in form of a letter, email or other type of written correspondence. It might even indicate something I read in a newspaper, book or magazine. The combination of The Letter and The woman would indicate a message from or about a woman.
The Letter and The Woman could also indicate a woman who is ‘lettered’ or literary and well educated. In combination with The Star, there could be an announcement or headlines about her, or perhaps some kind of award recognition for her.
I think it’s more likely that I’ll hear from a female friend today who is excited about some terrific news regarding something she’s been hoping for, or dreaming about.
Another thought occurred to me as I was about to scoop up the layout to put the cards away. If I retain the focus of this reading on myself, these cards could suggest that I am hopeful (Star) for some word (Letter) from a woman (Woman). This interpretation would actually be very accurate because just yesterday I attempted to reach a female friend I have not spoken to in a long time. I emailed a mutual acquaintance, and I’m awaiting a response.
This final interpretation may be completely intuitive on my part, and I’m always afraid that when I read for myself I could be ‘reading into’ the cards. On the other hand, I think in a real-life situation, intuitive input is what makes the difference between a great reading and a mediocre reading that is based merely on regurgitating the textbook meanings for the card combinations.
