Mulling over The Queen
When I first began to read cards, I would become frustrated if I could not instantly locate what it was that they were driving at; who is that King of Spades and why do the cards around him not make sense to me right now? With time, I have learnt to appreciate that not knowing straight away is often part of their beauty. Who wants to be told about something they already know? This is a question that I have always put to paying clients when they told me that the cards were not making instant sense. Would you not rather be given some clues or foresight about those things that had not yet happened, rather than be told about those things which have?
Today's cards are like that. I am not entirely sure who the Queen of Spades is at this moment, but I am sure I will soon figure it out. There are a few women who she could very well be. What is important in this draw is that she is not interested in me at the moment, since she turns to look the other way (for those not familiar with this method, I perceive the cards from the left). Between her and I is some kind of disappointment which relates to an agreement we had with one another. I am guessing that this has been broken, or if not yet, she is less interested in it now than she was. This is the kind of information I want to know about, because it could prevent me from banging my head against the wall in the near future. I must say that this queen does look a tad stroppy in these cards.
I held out from sleep for most of today. I journeyed back from my boyfriend's early this morning, but despite being tired, I went straight into town; starting off alone in a cafe having a cup of tea and something to eat, and then meeting up with a friend for a wander. After leaving her, I went to get my hair cut and bought a few bits and pieces; I want to make a good impression if I meet my boyfriend's work mates tomorrow.
When I got home, I set about the pouch for my runner and cards. I was worried that the cloth would get damaged if left loose in my bag, so I used the last of the two fabrics to make a lined pouch to carry the lot in. After the sewing machine was put away, I took a lay down. I slept for a few hours straight.
Today hasn't been about anything remarkable. It's been pretty matter of fact. At this moment, I am mulling over the Queen of Spades, wondering where she will pop up in my life. In essence, I can see that she is soon to disappoint, or at least, the potential is there for her to at the moment. I shall keep my eyes open for her as the days go on. The 5 of Clubs has been a visitor for my last three draws, so this must be a situation that I am already aware of or which has some importance.
