The second Modifier, Cross, is associated with religion, duty, selflessness, burden, and suffering.
Ring+Cross could be an unhappy marriage, but it could also be talking about the duties and work to keep a relationship stable.
So altogether, I read this as a reminder that a happy partnership still requires work to maintain; responsibility for that work is shared between partners, but do not be afraid to act selflessly.
Sun+Void could be the possibility of success, or unexpected success
Sun+Moth feels like it's about the search for or progress toward success
Moth and Sun is interesting imagery because we think of moths as being attracted to light, but they are _nocturnal_ creatures. A moth attracted to the sun is a lot like Icarus; too much of a good thing, too much ambition. You can imagine the moth crowing that it has the biggest, brightest prize in the world -- just before burning up
Today's draw: Void, Sun, Moth
a very moody set, art-wise. strong visual theme of circles
let's dig in!
The Subject, Sun, is success, recognition, victory, energy
The first modifier, Void, can be empty, but it could also be possibility; endless, unknowable
The second modifier, Moth, is active, hidden, compelled, nocturnal, possibly misdirected
@PaulCzege I've only played 2 sessions of Traverser, but I *cannot* say enough good things about the faring system -- I love it!
My most recent characters are people with severe PTSD that either live on an island of year-round Valentine's Day or suddenly find themself in post-capitalist utopia and are unable to cope, so I think I'd do pretty well in their places.
The first of them is a gondolier, so I don't think she'd do well at my software engineering job, but the other is basically from now-but-even-worse and has quantum powers, so I think she'd figure it out and do alright

I think there's a reading of these cards as something like "decay of family health," but that's not really the vibe I'm picking up
Instead I read them as "balance expanding friend circles with keeping my closest community stable" -- whether that expansion is by venturing outside my own comfort zone (Fungi) or by others joining my community (House)
As it happens, today I had a long, deep conversation with a friend, and one of the topics was masculinity, including some thoughts and experiences I rarely share with others
... and also, now I'm noticing that on my second screen I have a video pulled up called "The Lighthouse, Twilight, and Masculinity" -- Animus+Birds+Anchor seems as close as you can express that in Lenormand, too 😂
Today's #Lenormand reading:
Animus, Birds, Anchor
I'll admit, this one's perplexing me, but that is sort of the point of the exercise
The Subject is Birds, which is communication, conversation, companionship
The first modifier is Animus: masculine, or a man
The second modifier is Anchor: stable, secure, resilient
Star has to do with hope, optimism, inspiration, idealism, which makes it an interesting one to combine with worries
For me, Mice+Star brings to mind the phrase 'yacht problems' -- as in, "we can solve this problem from the deck of our yacht; we will only run into this problem if we're successful"
So altogether, I might read this spread as something like "don't get caught up in false choices and future problems"
Is that how you would interpret it? What reading do you suggest?
3 card spread with the Animatxs, Mice, and Star
I read that in a 3 card lenormand spread, you can interpret the middle card as the subject, and the left and right cards as modifiers that mirror each other
The Subject, Mice, can be worries or loss
The first modifier, Animatxs, can be about gender, but it can also have to do with binary/non-binary
So with Mice+Animatxs that could be something like 'a false dichotomy'
