Mona has allowed Heidi to move back into their apartment barring the discovery of any unexplained or frivolous purchases on Heidi’s part; which in Mona’s mind would be conclusive proof that Heidi stole the money. As I suspected, Mona is not interested in discussing the possibility that her sister might have had anything to do with the theft, so for now the investigation has gone cold.
Last night I hung out with Heidi and Mona at the apartment watching TV. Mona had tivoed the season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy. Maryanne, who is another friend of Mona’s, dropped by and after a couple of glasses of wine she started talking about her failed marriage. Maryanne has been married for three years, and her husband, Reuben, travels extensively for business. Maryanne found out a month ago that Reuben had an affair with a co-worker while away on a business trip, and she immediately threw him out. They have been separated ever since.
Heidi told Maryanne about my “mystical cards,” and Maryanne, who had never been to a ‘fortune teller’ before, wondered if my cards could help her figure out what to do about Reuben. Luckily, it’s my habit to carry my Lenormand cards with me wherever I go. I dug out my deck, and asked Maryanne what she would like to know.
Maryanne said she wanted to know what Reuben was thinking and what he planned to do about the situation. She told me that they have not spoken in almost three weeks. I set my intention that Lenormand card 28, the Gentleman, would represent Reuben, and I asked the cards what were Reuben’s thoughts and plans regarding the failing marriage.
This reading is about Reuben’s thoughts and intentions. Starting to the left of the Gentleman the Birds is about conversations, and indicates that Reuben wants to talk. The Clouds shows confusion, and it seems that he doesn’t know what to say. The Cross shows regret and suffering. Reuben is upset. He regrets his actions, but he doesn’t know how to make things better with the relationship. The Birds falls directly next to the Gentleman indicating that the relationship is still very important to Reuben.
Continuing to the right of the Gentleman the Clover indicates that Reuben is looking for a second chance. The House and the Heart reveal that he wants to return home. If Maryanne is willing to give him a second chance, Reuben will be more stable and focused on the home and family (the House), and more conscientious and caring (the Heart) in the future. Based on these cards, it doesn’t look like Reuben would roam again.
I told Maryanne that Reuben regrets the affair, and he wants to save the marriage. I advised her to think seriously about whether she is able forgive Reuben, and whether she is willing to give him another chance. If so, and if she can rebuild the lost trust, there is a good chance that their marriage will survive and eventually become more stable and loving than ever.
