How to figure out where to put my academic focus toward for the next 4 or 5 years?

Did a 3x3 (like the 3x3 for lenormand)

Q 4 5
5 J A
8 9 J

Spade are swords so many communication
diamond is money/investment
club is work

Q: A cruel mother; A seductress; Jealousy; A female rival. With this particular queen, watch out!
She’s intensely powerful and knows how to use that power to get what she wants. She is trying to take
something from the subject, be it a lover, money, or happiness in general. However, this card can also
be a warning that the subject is becoming too jealous for no reason, which is almost an opposite reading
in a way. So again context is important

4: In the case of information, this card
indicates a dull waiting period, possibly a prolonged one. This can mean “no news is good news,” or that
the client must wait on tenterhooks for a proper resolution to his/her situation.

5: Illness; A corpse. This suit is just full of jolly things, isn’t it? The Five of Spades indicates sickness,
disease, pain, etc.

I might be the queen of spades...who is in a position of feel like there is no good news causing me to be in a blah mood.

5H: A chapel; Fertility; A bed. The Five of Hearts shows the healthy development of a romance,
leading to family and (potentially) marriage. (in a non-literal manner...fertility equals a spark...romance maybe dong what I love)

J: A rebel; Bad news; A backstabber. The Jack of Spades is a bad boy/girl, someone not to be
trusted but who likely is very seductive and enticing. (going against what everyone thinks i should be doing.)

A: Death; Sudden change. This card is paralleled by the Death card in the tarot deck. And like its
counterpart, it doesn’t necessarily mean physical death, but instead a sudden transformation or an
ending. Much of this card’s meaning depends upon what it’s next to. This card can
also indicate deep isolation, and in some cases might even mean a period of contemplation, but again, it
depends on context.

Find something you are naturally falling in love with that causes you to rebel bringing about sudden change

8: – An argument; Shouting. Communication is important, but how a person communicates is also
vital. Pulling the Eight of Spades means that the client is not making him/herself clear and likely finds
him/herself constantly embattled and unable to resolve the problems in his/her life. It can also mean
long-standing arguments with those close to the client. ( I was thinking of a major that heavily focuses on communication one...is the health of the communication process of the brain, the other was debates)

9: Reaping; A forest. The Nine of Clubs shows things that have grown and how we deal with them
as human beings. In some cases, we reap what we’ve sown and prepare for hard times ahead, hoping
that what we have will be enough. Sometimes, we wander through the trees getting lost, hoping we’ll
find our way back again. A questioner finding this card may be having trouble making sense of his or her
life, but there is still plenty of hope left.

J: – A friend; A sibling. The Jack of Clubs is a peer, whether that’s a co-worker, a good friend, or a
sibling. This is someone with whom the questioner has a mutual respect. The Jack can also indicate
business news of some kind

Communication is important in making sense of my life with a career counselor/therapist.

come back later tonight to write up my interpretation.

3x3 CosmicBeing

Hi Cosmic, reading this in the same manner as I would read Lenormand's 3x3.

On a sidenote, I come to see the spades as troubles and challenges, the diamonds as thoughts and energy. Spades are stable, diamonds are instable. Like Captain Jack Sparrow says: "the problem () is not the problem, the attitude () is the problem."
Attitudes change, however the problem remains the same.

1. line - what's in your head

Queen is smart, so in this case she could symbolise you as a studied woman, the 4 does not move, and with the 5 at the end of the line, you might feel uncomfortable with the present situation.
The suits - spade-diamond-spade - points towards much work for very little reward. Maybe you worry too much, whether your studies lead to nothing, or instead of studying you worry too much which starts a vicious circle.
You are determined, but you might think you're stuck and 'caged'. This is an unhealthy situation, as you might feel frustrated and seeing very little success.
Quite far fetched, but could the Queen refer to your mother as a rival? That she wanted to study the subject but failed, and now you are under pressure for various reasons.

2. what's in your heart
The line of suits suggests a bad development, you might feel you are on the wrong course. For instance, you study this subject for the wrong reasons (to do justice to the rebellious side), and then you realise how much work this brings to you. But you seem to come to a final result which puts an end to your worry.

3. likely development

Inability to communicate your wishes, but you are determined to pursue your path and fight your way through.

What I noticed: 5, 5 + 9 could denote lack of sleep or exhaustion.

1. Column - the past

From the suits, this reads as a troubled heart, as though you cannot express your heart's desire. Trouble between you and your mother because you might perceive her as an opponent. You might have seen her doing many things for the wrong reasons. Like she says she supports you because she loves you, but you don't feel that this was true.
This looks like a long-standing battle.

2. column - the present

Difficulties get surmounted by hard work. You put something into focus - either the way you study, or the subject you study. You find a solution, you understand what is causing the trouble.

3. column - the future
You overcome your worries and doubts by talking to somebody you trust. Could be a study mate. You work yourself out of difficulties, which will be a boost for your self-esteem.

I been worrying a lot and just not interested in studies. I would like to take a huge break to really figure sh*t out.

I am doubtful it's my mother...except she always pushes me toward certain types of careers because those are the only careers my family really get into.

I was always very rebellious all my life. My family use to say that may be my downfall. But, I have always done what was expected of me (to counteract the rebellious manner of mine) and honestly it hasn't really gotten me anywhere and has made me feel more blah.

Yea trouble with expressing my wishes, but I am now determined to really follow my heart...just need to be able to communicate now.

My mother was pretty liberal but still 'traditional'. Meaning I was to do what was expected of me or be kicked out of the house. My mother was always pushing me to do stuff...so how education was in my house was year round school. I was always in schooling whether during the government ran months of schooling or summer school where I would have to go to tutoring classes for hours at end. I kinda felt that limited me to really figure out what I really enjoy.

So I never saw her as an opponent but I saw her as someone who pre-pave my path and I wasn't allowed to deviate from it.

Sounds good.

I can't yet comment, but I hope so!

Thank you. I forgot to read the column.

Knighting - options

starting with Q, we have A, A and J.
Beginnings, news, a letter, home & family. This looks promising. Two equally attractive options.

the line - what happens in the future -- 6 7 10

the logical development, putting a set of unpleasant feelings to rest. This task looks really difficult, and with the spade in the end, I won't be successful. Reason tells me it's sensible.

the line - what's on my mind -- 2 5 8
exchange (the 'vision thing') - the hand with the knife - shoptalk

Good grief, this is really happening. For the last two weeks, I was thinking about getting transferred, I spoke to my superior and her response was disheartening enough that I went and emptied my locker. I peeled off the tags with my name on it. She made it sound as if the doors are wide open, just go. Well, I stick in her craw. The dislike is mutual. I'm there because I like the team, she usually does not bother me because... I am stabilising the team. I also am reliable.
Anyway, when she said she won't be putting blocks in my way and if I want to go, I am free to do so, the team did not react the way she might have expected. To my surprise, they weren't happy. This makes a huge difference as for the first time I am part of a team. My workmates respect me and my expertise. I also am no backstabber and I am loyal.
So the superior was surprised, and she had to change her strategy. Had the team reacted differently, according to the 5 she'd flayed me alive and fed my bones to wild animals. Well, she tried to. In the situation, I focused on one thing - stay calm, don't get up and go. I was angry enough to put my keys on the table and leave the house for good.
There is a lot of talk going on, but it's nothing but a storm in a teacup. I am learning something here.

Diagonally - likely development -- Q 8 3
the vicious queen - inability to communicate - scatterbrain

I do not like the way I am treated by my superior. There is very little respect. But for a change, I managed to avoid this becoming a battle between mother and daughter. My superior tries to be 'the good mother' of the house, and she fails abysmally for she clearly is Snow White's Stepmother. When she smiles at me, I feel like I was an especially juicy frog she'd like to use for her potions.
But the evil line of troubles and problems will disperse. Lack of focus, lack of work. Things fall to pieces. At least for the time being, the battle comes to an end.

I know I have annoyed my superior, and she wants to pay me back. On the other hand, she never had been my friend and now we both put our cards on the table things could start to work out. She knows I don't buy her tales, my team knows what a nasty fellow she is, and I have seen I am not afraid of her.

Job change in the next 3 months?


Oooh my dear Z... you and I are on the same wavelengths... and this brings me back here as I am not sure what the cards are meaning. They seem rather positive, but with the big Ace in the middle.

Ok, here goes:

King Ace 9 Jack 5

K looks like the institution to me, as my bosses are wealthy and powerful.

Ace - death, the end.

9 "Daydreams, peace and contentment", but with the Ace before it... I see the end to that too.

Jack - bad news

5 - Here, I sense my emotional turmoil over this situation, but it could also signal a separation from the institution.

This is a very painful job for me and it reflects in the reading. But I am not sure if I am able to extract here whether I will leave in three months or not. I don't see the good news, as the positive cards have two very negative ones in the middle of them. interaction to me signals difficulties, though they are overcome and I find some form of peace.

This reading seems to indicate financial losses here to me. I would like some advice if anyone concurs here?

salut ma belle let's take a look at the message you get

a bank - a death - daydreams - bad news - natural development, a chapel

reading the suits, dividing them in 3 parts: Financial difficulties will be overcome; a worried purse; difficulties will be overcome easily.
I don't see what you need to do in this situation because of the lack of clubs. This is an emotional situation, you feel encumbered as you don't feel motivated. There is no security (King + Ace), It's just pressure, and getting a job done, but you don't see any success (9 + Jack). This also give the impression of a broken promise.

Financial trouble is indicated in the suits. But the reading ends positively for you. There won't be harm, just a bad feeling. Which has nothing to do with you but with the company's policy (K) changing (A), and you getting a rude awakening (J) from a dream (9), however with the A this could be a nightmare.
I don't see a decision, but the 9 heralds change, and the 5 is about gains and losses.

Good luck me dear

Thank you me dear... will try and 3x3 and see if it brings anything new.

Everything you said was right because I was hoping this job would keep me busier and I would be involved at my best abilities. Instead, am just a peon for a couple of rich people who don't want to click on the buttons themselves. You should see the level of nonsense I have to do (like delete pages in documents, or just rename them... yes, these are my 'tasks'!!!)

And in a previous reading you did there was a King Swords who the most absolutest b******* and his wife is the most disguised, cunning little fox ever who doesn't come to work for 3 months because she has to fly home before her belly gets to big (she was pregnant) and then you do see her with the big belly on Facebook in the Seychelles ( a seven-hour flight away).

OK!!! Rant finished.

Will get on the 3x3 for Weekend.

3x3 Career until March 2017


Overall impression, a majority of reds – so things aren’t as bad as I perceive them. All suits are present, which indicate some balance, but the majority of Diamonds indicate the relation to money, but also that all of this is going on in my mind. 2 Club Cards indicate that I really want to get on and do things practically, whilst the Spades and Heart minority indicate the emotions and sorrows could be only minor or passing, not long-lasting. An improvement.



Following Z's wording

Line #1 (what's in my head) : 8 7 2

Hearts & Diamonds: happiness & success, comfort & security
8-7-2, a situation that goes from ‘major’ to ‘minor’ … decreasing in importance.
8 H : “Raised cups”, that is, social drinking. Flirtatious conversation. A social club.
7 D : Financial challenges ; I sense this is about financial responsibility too
2 D: Money exchange of some sort ; I see it here as money going in and out

So in my head, I want to be happy at work… I just want to enjoy what I am doing. I thought my job was going to be about meeting more people, socialising more and also help improve my financial situation. In my head, this is what I also want to do. I want to do something which is a lot more interesting and social, and I want to earn properly. I have a business investment of my own in mind, but cannot go ahead with that as yet because of financial challenges, difficulties and responsibilities. Whatever money I receive, goes out towards bills and school, therefore I can’t not have a salary.

Line #2 (what's in my heart): 10 K J

Diamonds & Clubs interact to talk about investment
10 – K – J : something high on the agenda for me.
10 D – financial freedom ; financial success and achievement ;
KC - the investor / someone with the power to help or the authority to do so; perhaps even me as the main investor in my project
JC – a message concerning a business venture / possibly a younger business partner. I see it also here as a fresh business start / a new venture

So indeed, I would like to have my own business and am dreaming of having the money to do it. That’s all I have in my heart. I believe it to be the solution to my woes with employers and bosses that have tortured me throughout my working career.


Line #3 (likely development): 9 Q 3

Spades & Diamonds : imagined problems ; improved finances
B R R – emerging from a dark situation.


Column 1 : Past - 8 10 9

The conversation, society, group ; financial stability ; the coffin
My most recent past was fairly OK, and stable, but I chose to leave the job. I was also perhaps relatively happier in that previous job as there weren’t any of the gross discrepancies which I am now facing. But it wasn’t intellectually fulfilling and juxtaposed 10 D and 9 S definitely show that. Happy heart, but grieving mind.


Column 2 : Present - 7 K Q

7 Diamonds are considered ‘astrological’, so perhaps better stars are coming into play here… since I am told this is ‘my’ year. So I deal with K C and Q D, the dark boss and his fairer wife boss… who just really torture me by their absence and his unkind remarks and general shittiness. Very unkind man and a very airy, breezy woman… deceptive. But they are rich people and my finances depend on this job. So currently, I am tethered to them… and it worries me. My thoughts and finance both balance with the 7 with the eternal question: should I stay or should I go?


Column 3: Future - 2 J 3

I think this looks good by the end of the desired period! It does seem like an exchange of information occurring with the 2 D, so perhaps me passing CVs or e-mails etc. Which turns to a concrete message coming and what looks like development. I am not sure if it leads to something, but knowing that there is possible growth and improvement at the end of the period is a good thing to hold on to.

Passing Time with a non-serious Reading


http://www.destinywitch.com/Pages/Ca...dMeanings.aspx

What will be my perception of L.G Book by PG after I finish studying/reading it?
7 spade - Ace spade - 2 spade

-Card of removal: uncovering of truth, a removal, loss of some kind
-Card of changes: death, rebirth, change, transformation. Ending but at same time New beginning, problems resolved.
-Card of division: need to have others in life, need for harmony, but difficult decision. Fear of being along.

I got this book to gain a level of consistency the topic of the book deals with. So I am taking this as uncovering a truth that allows a problem to be resolved through gaining harmony through difficult decisions.


Update this after I finish reading the book.

How will my interactions at M organization go?
10 club - 6 diamond - Jack heart

-Card of Traveling: Traveling, Happiness, good fortune. Good omen of New beginnings.
-Card of Financial Responsibility: Full responsibility, improvement in finances, Financial help, or Money related to vehicles
-Card of Cupid: lover, friend, confidant, may represent me, someone I know, or someone I will meet.

There is a financial aspect.. I will have to give some form of payment. It may indicate Traveling to invest in creating a confidant in my life.

outlook for my week between November 14 - 20 2016?
4Diamond - 7Diamond - QDiamond - 10Heart - AClub
Card of Patience - Financial responsibility based on values. Satisfaction, prosperity, inheritance, spending money on luxury & entertainment or someone in love with you.
Card of Financial Challenges - Money problems, gossips, envy. Blah for financial dealing. Rumors & criticism.
Card of Gossip- A woman who loves to gossip, Very flirtatious, sophisticated, witty, & loves to party. Decisive, good judgement, & strong sense of responsibility.
Card of a Gathering- Social occasion, party, marriage, good news, large gathering of people.
Card of Communication- strong desire for knowledge. Extraordinary talents, original thinking, or a new beginning. Financial gain or recognition. Message in the form of a letter, phone call, fax, text, email.

This I might be the Q of Diamonds this week. I have Financial responsibility over financial difficulty....for a class (gathering to gain knowledge).
