Unsurprisingly, our move to the US and all of the upheaval that comes with it is still at the forefront of my mind, and my main concern is the work I will be doing when I get there to put a roof over our heads and food on the table. I mentioned before how I am strongly considering going into the medical field at entry level and have been mulling over a number of training courses, options and specific areas of interest, imagining myself working in different roles and asking, what would I find the most fulfilling?
Of course, I can’t really know until I do it, so I decided to get back to basics and created this Lenormand spread to explore the core of what I can do and what I have to offer at this time. The first horizontal row represents my talents, the second is my skills (things I can also build upon) and the bottom is advice about how to put them to best use. I had quite a lot of fun with this spread because I made it in such a way that I can focus on those main three questions, then see how they intersect and interact with the bigger picture of our move by reading vertically and diagonally.
My talents – Key + Stork + Crossroads
Discovering adaptable solutions to various situations and conundrums; a specialty in knowing when it is time to move-on to a new path; unlocking numerous options to pursue when facing transition.
My skills – Birds + Fish + Snake
Talking through numerous complexities; going with the flow in times of trouble and anxiety; tempting talk of money – in other words, a good sales pitch; complex discussions about cash-flow – smart banking? Vicious talk of money – hard bargaining?
Advice – Clover + Child + Bear
Be resourceful with even the smallest opportunity; resourcefulness brings new opportunities; be protective of new opportunities; find joy in the smallest of resources; look for opportunities in new management; build strength through small opportunities; protecting my children brings luck.
How they interact/intersect – vertical line reading:
Key + Birds + Clover
Unlocking multiple opportunities; the key to opportunities is talking (networking and interviews, perhaps).
Stork + Fish + Child
New fiscal transition; moving to find new abundance; relocation brings slight affluence.
Crossroads + Snake + Bear
Manage complex choices; path of wise resource management; diverse and complex management of resources; protect against bad choices; boldness in the face of winding paths; empower biting discernment.
How they interact/intersect – diagonal line reading:
Key + Fish + Bear
The key to affluence is resource management; unlock financial reserves; the solution is multiple jobs; the answer is to protect your finances.
Crossroads + Fish + Clover
Diversifying your finances brings luck; taking short-term financial decisions; opportune financial decisions.
Key + Crossroads + Bear + Clover
The answer is to diversify your resources and opportunities.
It is interesting that both the Stork and Fish appeared, reflecting my concerns about a relocation and our financial situation, and the fact that the whole spread is kicked off with the Key just reminds me again why I’ve fallen in love with Lenormand – straight down to business, here are some solutions. Pragmatism at its finest.
Overall I am seeing from this spread that to best utilise my talents and skills during this move it is important that I diversify my plans. My possible ‘calling’ can wait, the specificities of which job or career are unimportant for now, first I must focus on seizing as many opportunities as possible to increase our cash flow and build up our reserves. I need to be adaptable, weigh up my options and just get talking to people about what opportunities are out there.
