Being a fan of all things gothic, I was delighted when this deck arrived. It has some nice, gruesome touches, like the skulls under the Fox, and the shadowy wolves in the clouds above the paths in the Fork card :)
|Mysteries of the Old Castle Lenormand|
So, today's draw is Lillies, Fox and Fork. On a dark riff:
Skillful sexuality brings choices.
An elder makes instinctual choices.
In following your instincts, do you choose harmony, or to walk your own path?
Using cunning and the wisdom of your elders to make better decisions.
The last two, in particular, seem like they might be useful. Should we be following our instincts, or considering what decision is "best". And how is that "best" defined?
It's certainly true that I often try to keep the peace, rather than following my own instincts. And sometimes that may be for the best, but other times it might not be. Today, I shall try to stay aware of my motivations and choices. Not that I have anything much in mind - Big Boy is off school again, this time due to a tummy bug, rather than the inclement weather *doh* Still, plenty of choices in motherly tasks, too, and keeping the peace with a cranky child or doing what is "best" for him...
I am grateful that there are always choices in life.
