I love the Mystical Lenormand deck. The colorful detail and cultural themes appeal to me. My only complaint is that card 25 The Ring depicts two birds. I understand that they are meant to symbolize a couple, but for some reason whenever this card turns up, I mistake it for card 12 The Birds.
This morning I drew three cards for inspiration and guidance with no particular focus in mind:
25 The Ring
18 The Dog
09 The Bouquet
I immediately mistook the Ring for the Birds; Hence, my first impression of these cards was that I would receive a phone call from an old friend sharing good news. The fact that Card 25 is actually the Ring changes things considerably.
The Dog of course represents someone I know. The Bouquet carries feminine energy, so the Dog is probably a female who is light-hearted and kind. The Ring could indicate a reunion with this woman that is happy and well-received (Bouquet). The Bouquet can also represent a gift which is confirmed by the Ring. The combination Ring + Dog may indicate a romantic connection from the past. Reunion with a lovely woman I already know, and may have dated, who will be bearing a gift or some good news.
I find these cards particularly interesting because about 6 months ago a family member ran into an ex-girlfriend of mine from college. She gave my relative her number and asked that I give her a call. We hadn’t parted on the best of terms–In fact if I remember correctly, I was heartbroken at the time. I’m long since over it, but why dig up bad bones? I just tossed out the number without bothering to call.
It seems the fates may intend for a reunion with the lovely girl.
