Book Ring cat lily Rider
Book - something unknown or hidden
Ring - a committment, agreement or union
Dog - someone known to you that you trust and know well
Lily - passion, wisdom, peace, serenity, maturity
Rider - information, a change in your life
It seems here that there is something you are keeping to yourself (book is opened and laid face down on the table, suggesting to me that is something you know and are not revealing) this appears to be about your feelings for someone (book+ring hidden feelings or union). The ring with dog suggests this is someone you know well and trust, this doesnt appear to be a new friend as the cards suggest a level of intimacy here with this person and although I feel there is a passion for this person (dog+lily) I also think this shows a long established and comfortable situation where you feel safe. The rider is suggesting to me that you are entering a new cycle in all of this, that what you know as this connection affects how you go forward in some way. The book + rider suggests that the information that stirs this change is only whats known to you and that which you are keeping private and there is a sort of renewal with it, its not a surprise exactly but perhaps more in your face?.
the ring with lily gives me the feeling that this is a long standing situation, a long standing relationship but with the book and rider I don't feel it's your partner.
So basically this is a situation you are going to have to give your attention and focus, my feeling its not going to go away.
adding up the numbers takes me back to the rider, this situation is here now to be looked at, it's bringing something into your life which creates some sort of change.
sorry if this is all rubbish! as I said on my own thread I am VERY rusty and I was rubbish before I was rusty lol![/QUOTE]
Not rubbish at all..! very insightful..! :)
You're right that the book seems secretive, but I'm also in a place where I want to study a bit and withdraw, plan things, and put my nose to the grinder so to speak. It seems appropriate here, but who doesn't have secrets anyway? I certainly have mine. Very insightful indeed...!
Your advice and intuition on a relationship is spot on too. I do need to concentrate on the immediate relationships around me, and that's what I had planned on doing. This confirms things. Thank you so much! :D
I have to eclipse myself a bit, so I'll let someone else answer you, but if it's not answered by the time I get back, I'll tackle it for you.
