A lot to read & study

Bridgett's Tudor Lenormand
Today I drew Whip + Book + Stars.

The whip is usually a representation of ARGUMENTS, discussions, separation, sports, physical activity, abuse. But it can also symbolize writing, and repetition.

The book is about SECRETS, education, knowledge, expertise, discoveries, studies, a book.

The stars about DREAMS, fame, encouragement, reputation, moving forward.

In combinations, the whip + book can be academic competition. But since my day has already happened, I can tell you that it had to do with a lot of research and reading.

Book + stars can mean enlightening information, or esoteric studies. I sometimes see this combination as reading online as well.

For me today, these cards were a prediction that I would spend a lot of time online today reading about something of interest to me. My interest just happens to be the art of reading playing cards. :)

Hope everyone had a wonderful day!

A star is born

Bridgett's Tudor Lenormand
Today I drew Dog + Child + Stars.

The dog usually talks about a loyal friend / friendship. The child can be: either a child, or something new / small. And the stars are usually about dreams, encouragement, reputation and moving forward with clarity.

In combinations, the dog + child can mean a new dog, a child's dog, a new friendship, or the meaning that I will take from it today is being my child's friend.

The child + stars can mean several things as well. Either a new start goes well, a talented child, a child is popular.

Dog + Stars, a famous friend, or a very lucky friend.

Since this is a daily draw, I am going to make a prediction that my child will come home from school with a friend, or a bunch of them. This has been true for the last several days, and it makes me feel good that she is finally finding some loyal friends to pal around with. I also think that one of my children may confide in me about something, and I offer encouragement. I might even make a new friendship today, who knows.

Have a great day everyone.

Horsing Around Again

Bridgett's Tudor Lenormand
Here is my daily draw for the day, as I look out my window at the cloudy sky for the fourth day in a row. I miss sunshine!

Stork + Clouds + Rider

I stayed up late last night, so again today, I will pay the price with a lack of focus. (stork + clouds). It may also be due to a confusing message (clouds + rider). Sometimes when I get clouds with rider for a daily draw, it comes up as horsing around. This is probably true for me. I always end up doing things that I shouldn't be doing, instead of things that need to be done. Also (stork + rider) mirror one another and may mean a message about change.

This ought to be interesting. Enjoy your day everyone.

*update* I just got a message in my inbox telling me some news of changes made with a student loan, and it has caused me to feel a little uneasy. But it's not too bad.

Flexible & Positive

Bridgett's Tudor Lenormand - not for sale at the moment
My daily draw for today is Man + Stork + Garden.

The man and stork combination shows a man bringing changes, and the garden says that they are happy changes. Also, the man shows flexibility. The change becomes public.

Just before getting the chance to post this blog, I talked to my neighbor who is a man, and he brought good news my way. He was telling someone about me, and the person he was talking to suggested a position at a local pharmacy that is hiring full time workers. They think I will be a good fit, and they want me to fill out an application. :)

So a man did bring positive (possibility) of change to me today.

Hope everyone has a blessed day.

Lazy Days

Bridgett's Tudor Lenormand - not currently for sale
Here is my daily draw for the day. Woman + Bouquet + Clouds.

I never like it when the clouds appear, but for a daily draw it isn't so bad. Also, the weather is rainy and very windy at the moment. It has been for a few days now.

Usually when I see the bouquet and clouds combination for a daily reading, I see it as daydreaming or laziness. Of course, the woman is me. It has been a rather boring, lazy day today, and I keep looking out the window to see if the sun will appear.

The woman and bouquet, for me, usually represent a charismatic, pretty woman. A woman who is happy. But since there are clouds here, she appears troubled or confused as well.

This is all very true. There are some things in my personal life going on that are causing me a little trouble. It has yet to be resolved, and it has been a year. I am hoping by the end of summer, I will be over it and ready to take on a brighter future.

Hope everyone has a good day.

Took my car in for an inspection today, and was surprised by some troubles. lol Oh dear. Time to find money to take care of that problem now.

Nurture Yourself

Victorian Romantic Tarot & Celtic Lenormand
The King of Cups keeps everyone working together, and is patient in trying circumstances. He also teaches with loving attentions.

The three Lenormand cards talk about a commitment to friendships & family.

I will probably communicate with one of my daughters while she is at her fathers, like we usually do. Perhaps I will find time to get together with a friend as well? Who knows. It's always a little difficult for me to be away from my kids, so I am sure I will have to preoccupy myself in a nurturing way. We should all be reminded to do that!

Have a blessed Saturday!

Too Tired to Fight

Victorian Romantic Tarot & Celtic Lenormand
Oh dear, look at the load on her back, and in her arms? She must be tired and ready to just drop everything and rest her poor aching body. But she cradles a baby in her arms, so she knows she can't just let go, but she must be more careful.

The three Lenormand cards suggest that happiness has a price, and sometimes there is unavoidable conflict.

I am not sure what all that is about, but I am guessing that I will certainly be relieved that the weekend is finally here! I get to relax, and put aside my school stuff for 24 hours before I have to start studying for the week ahead. Oh goodness, it is going to feel so good! But before I can do that, I first have to take my kids to see their father. So not up for the extra miles I have to drive.

I hope there won't be any quarrels today, because I am too tired to fight.

The Ache in My Heart

Victorian Romantic Tarot & Celtic Lenormand
I LOVE this 2 of Swords picture. It is breathtaking. The waves crashing against rocks, and the sky full of dark clouds, maybe predicting a storm that is near. But the person in the picture braces herself, and has a calm look. The muscles in her face are relaxed and untroubled. She hides stress very well, and ignores warning signs. Perhaps she is just meditating on what is to come, fearing for the future, and guarding her heart.

The three Lenormand cards that follow predict a letter from a childhood sweetheart. Maybe it will cause some aching in my heart, or remind me of troubling times. I am guessing that it will keep me on the fence about something.

We will soon see! Have a blessed day.


I actually worked in a nursing home today where a man was visiting his wife. He told me that they have been together for many years (high school sweethearts). She always put up with his shenanigans, and he appreciates her so much. He said that they got old too fast, and forgot to talk about what measurements to use when they were unable to care for themselves. It made me sad. I cried on the way home thinking about it.

The Paradox

I found a new copy of The Heart of Faerie Oracle by Brian & Wendy Froud. I can tell already that it is going to be a favorite.

While asking the character of two questionable females, the cards didn't mince words.

Said female #1 - The Lady of Leprechauns:

I asked what I need to know about her. In the beautiful hardback book, I get, "Leprechauns are tricky, their Lady is even more so." and, "Remember that her gifts are not what they appear to be."

"You may be wise to thank her and walk away empty-handed."

So, there we have it! Beautiful but not so honest or friendly.

Said female #2 - The Paradox:

I asked what I need to know about her. The book spells it out again ...

"... good but bad at the same time, and in equal parts."

"Examine your feelings, your intuition, your hunches."

"... be very very careful about how you proceed in this relationship."

Just look at the picture. Two faces. Wow! Can't get anymore direct than that.

Then I asked, how I should proceed.

The Green Woman:

"Relationships call for a gentle greening sometimes."

"Be strong in your convictions, but gentle in the manner in which you present them."

So there it is. I was right. Now for the hard part. Wish me luck!


Victorian Romantic Tarot & Celtic Lenormand
The Page of Cups appears today. For me this card usually reminds me to forgive people, and respond with care rather than anger.

The three Lenormand cards that follow predict relief, and a positive outcome to something that could otherwise bring pain, or burden.

I look forward to seeing what it is. Positive outcomes are always good!


Respond with care rather than anger sounds about right (from above). I was invited to lunch this afternoon, but it turned out to be more grief than what it was worth. The food was good, but the company wasn't the best, I ended up feeling burden for the rest of the day, knowing that I am getting played by fake friends.

Friend or Foe?

Victorian Romantic Tarot & Celtic Lenormand
Oh my! Look at The Devil I drew today. She certainly is quite alluring, isn't she? The money at her feet, the beautiful jewels in her hand, the flowers, what is a girl to do? For me this card is usually about procrastination, and being enslaved by something.

The three Lenormand cards following talk about an end to public confusion, or quick confusion via a social network, or even hurtful public confusion. I suppose they will leave me doubting myself ... The Devil. Perhaps something at school? Maybe even questions on a test?

Hmmm. Well, I will post an update later. I hope it isn't too serious. Have a blessed day!


I had a painful headache this afternoon. Ugh! I had to stay after school an extra three hours to do labs, so I certainly felt enslaved!

Wack a Mole

Victorian Romantic Tarot & Celtic Lenormand
Today I drew the Page of Wands. For me this Page is about taking action & being assertive. This Page likes to move beyond doubts, and be a step up from everyone else.

The three Lenormand cards drawn may certainly be the reason for this assertiveness. It looks like it may call for some digging around and finding out about a man's behavior, or reason behind a troubling message.

Whatever the case, I am not looking forward to today! I hope it's something minor. *sigh*

The day is not over yet, but I am wondering if the fox + man + rider could be me sneaking messages to a guy during class. LOL

Another Playboy

Victorian Romantic Tarot & Celtic Lenormand

I really want to get back into doing daily draws but school has been keeping me SO BUSY! Some days I wonder what the heck I was thinking when I signed up, but other days I feel like I am accomplishing something worth while. Nursing is certainly a rewarding career choice, but I can't wait to use the skills that I am learning in a real world setting.

Today I drew the Knight of Cups from the Victorian Romantic Tarot. He is a charming young man with sparkling armor. He is well protected except for his head. He looks up at the sky as if daydreaming about something bigger than himself. His hair is longer and has a bit of curl. It seems the girls go nuts over curls because he is surrounded by several beauties. He could have his pick of any of them. I know who this playboy is for me today; he is the man that my affections have turned toward in the last couple of days. He just so happens to be venturing into "single" status. Even though I am quite excited about this, it appears that he is in no hurry to set his sights on just one woman. In fact, his sights are set on any! They paw all over him, but he looks like he hardly notices, and might even be annoyed. For now his head is in the clouds, and he contemplates his next move. I suppose I should back off a bit, and let him take care of business. After-all, I have quite a bit on my own plate right now. I am a patient person, and will certainly invite my own distractions.

The next three cards are drawn from the Celtic Lenormand. They seem to go along with what I mention above. This man has much to manage right now from past commitments, and I should gently nurture the friendship between us.

Off to study. Much to learn.

What will happen tonight? Vikings Season 4, Episode 1

A Viking Fan Lenormand Deck, created by B.Trejo 2016
So, if you know me at all you know that I am a very big fan of the TV series Vikings on the History Channel. It might seem silly to you, but I have grown quite fond of it, and watch it faithfully. I have a girl crush on Travis Fimmel who plays Ragnar, and Gustaf Skarsgard who plays Floki.

Ragnar has gone from being a farmer to an Earl and then a King. He has a curious mind, and craves knowledge about all things bigger than himself. Travis plays this part very well, and it's hard not to love him. If you have seen any interviews with Travis, you will see that he is much like the character he plays on the show. He too is a farmer, and he has a gentle spirit. His sense of humor is contagious. I would give anything just to sit with him for an hour and laugh till my belly hurts. A hug would just be a bonus. ;)

Floki on the other hand is a brilliant ship builder. Ragnar seeks him out to build him one and they become good friends. Floki had my interest from the very beginning. He is a very intense, and energetic character on the show. He may not have a lot of mental faculties when it comes to relationships, but he has real vision for anything mechanical. Gustaf being of true vikings decent, has warmed my heart toward Floki. I especially like his crazy snickering. It comes at the most inappropriate times, which makes it all the more funny. I have fear for Floki's safety in Season 4 though because he let his jealousy get the better of him.

** spoilers **

I have been counting down to season 4, and am both relieved and excited that it finally starts tonight! I thought it would be fun to pull a few cards to see what I could predict for tonight. I made a cute deck of Lenormand cards for myself, just to add to the anticipation.

I can't help but think Floki is the fox in this drawing. He has done a terrible thing by killing Ragnar's Christian friend. There is very little Floki won't do to please his Gods, and getting rid of his Christian rival is small potatoes to him. But to Ragnar, it isn't! Ragnar is certainly angry and feeling betrayed.

The fox is next to clouds, suggesting confusion around this betrayal. I am predicting there will be some dark clouds hovering around Floki in tonight's show. (poor Floki).

I also believe that it will be his own wife (lily + woman) who reveals the secret (open book) of what Floki did. Up until this point, Ragnar has been speculating that it was Floki who killed Athelstan. But tonight's episode is bound to wipe away any doubts, and make it more concrete for Ragnar. Ragnar will truly see the depths to which Floki has gone to get rid of the man whom Floki thinks has poisoned Ragnar's mind.

I feel troubled for Floki's wife as well because it can't be an easy thing for her to do, putting her husband into the hands of the Viking community, where he will surely be judged harshly for his crime. She probably tossed the idea around for a long while before deciding to do what she feels is right (lily) and cleanse her conscience.

Good luck Floki!


The episode didn't actually say that Floki's wife told the others about his "bad deed" but Bjorn; Ragnar's son, had Floki arrested for the murder of Athelstan. It is unclear what punishment awaits Floki at this moment.

It felt like the episode flew by, and I didn't want it to end. Waiting another week to see the next episode is a killer after binging on past seasons without interruptions. *sigh.

#Vikings returns Thursday at 10e/p
The gods have a gift for you. In honour of the return of #Vikings, we have a special sneak peek at Thursday's premiere!

Week of 2/15/16 - Into the Unknown

My week ahead: 2/15 - 2/21
Deck: The Wild Unknown Tarot

Monday 2/15/16: daughter of cups -
The daughter of cups in this deck is usually the page of cups in a traditional tarot deck.

Since I am actually posting this on Monday, and the day is almost over, I can say without a doubt that my day has been calm and stable, just as the water this lovely swan swims in. This swan reminds me that there is power in the simplicity of life. My youngest daughter, so precious, came to me this afternoon asking if I would do something special with her because she was having trouble occupying herself. She doesn't have school this week, and with the temperatures being below zero outside, there is only so much she can do inside the house without getting bored. We ended up making donut muffins, filling our house with a cinnamon fragrance, and much needed warmth. It was very nice, and a bonding experience. :)

Tuesday 2/16/16: 7 of cups -
This card is a little "trippy" to look at. It is about illusions and deception, but also, traditionally, the 7 of cups is about making a decision. I will have to really examine the choices in front of me and make sure that the cup I grab is really full and not empty. I have a lot of school work to do this week, even though I have the week off. It could mean that I may lack focus and commitment to my school work. Perhaps something will be distracting me, and I will procrastinate? Or maybe this is a warning that I will overindulge myself with snacks? I have been trying very hard not to eat more than I need to keep my body going, but hey, those muffins are calling my name!

**Update** I think I did overindulge myself with those muffins, and I also found several other things to do throughout the day instead of my school work!

Wednesday 2/17/16: 4 of wands -
Since I do not own the companion book for this deck, I am choosing to use the traditional meaning of the 4 of wands. It usually means a rejoicing over a happy event, or relishing the moment. I know that I have been anticipating the 4th season of "Vikings" on the history channel, and it happens to be starting on Thursday, perhaps this will be the reason for some excitement on Wednesday? I'm silly like that. I've been anxiously counting down the days.

**Update** I joined hulu plus so I could binge on past episodes of Vikings. I was on cloud 9.

Thursday 2/18/16: 8 of cups -
The 8 of cups is traditionally a card that represents moving on. Sometimes I become burned out in life, and want to walk away and start over. Unfortunately, it isn't as simple as that, and these thoughts can weigh heavily on my mind. The cups in this picture are broken, and can no longer hold enough liquid to quench my thirst. Perhaps I will feel some disappointment on Thursday. Whatever it is that leaves me dragging through the day, I hope it isn't too bad!

**Update** It felt like the day was dragging by as I waited for the new episode of Vikings to come on. When it did, I felt it was too short, and left me frustrated.

Friday 2/19/16:  9 of cups -
The 9 of cups for me is the wish card. Usually when this card comes up, I get something that I have been wishing for, and as a result, I feel "pleased as punch." I'm looking forward to seeing what Friday brings now!

**Update** I found chocolate Italian Ice at the grocery store tonight. Yum! Also, I drove my oldest daughter to meet up and spend the weekend with her best friend. They haven't seen one another in months, so both were excited to see the other. I hope they have a good time!

Saturday 2/20/16: 7 of swords -
The fox is usually about deception, or hiding from truth. Maybe I will hide from an obligation, I could say that someone might lie to me that day, but to be honest, my social circle is a bit small right now. I socialize online more than I do face to face. Maybe I will just prefer solitude Saturday?

Sunday 2/21/16: The Hermit -
Since I begin school again Monday, there is a good chance that I will be like this turtle, and retreat into my own private world, avoiding distractions and getting a lot of studying done. I have five chapter tests Monday. I'm quite certain I will desire stillness for days afterward. LOL.
