Norbert Reads the Cards for Bookseller Mary Webber O’Malley

 

Norbert, the protagonist of the soon-to-be-published The Reluctant fortune-Teller, has been reading the cards of authors, and today he’s reading the cards of a dynamic bookseller, Mary Webber O’Malley of Anderson’s Bookshop in La Grange, Illinois. Anderson’s is the kind of book store that makes you want to buy bags full of books, because of the friendly and helpful people there, like Mary. Anderson’s is a huge supporter of authors and readers, and regularly has literary luminaries come for signings and interviews.

Mary’s question for Norbert concerns one of her own very favorite authors: Stephen King. On September 29, he and his son Owen King are coming to an Anderson’s event http://www.andersonsbookshop.com/event/stephen-and-owen-king

As Mary shuffled her cards amid the shelves and displays of books, she focused on this question: “Will I get a chance to speak with Stephen King when he comes to town in September?”

Here are the cards Mary drew:

Four of Clubs

Seven of Clubs

Ace of Diamonds

Six of Clubs

Nine of Spades

Ten of Clubs

Jack of Hearts

Here is Norbert’s reading:

Mary, I see here a preponderance of Clubs. This signifies popularity, friendly relationships and social occasions.

The Four of Clubs says that you are more popular and more well-liked than you realize, and that you should know that your sphere of influence is widening at this time.

The Seven of Clubs says to be on the look-out for a special new relationship in particular.

The Ace of Diamonds refers to your own special talent, which is powerful. There is a mighty force of creativity within you. This is also a card of magic, so the power has a magical feel to it; it is the ability to build worlds, to build something out of nothing.

The Six of Clubs refers to a “business meeting.” This may look like a regular business meeting, or it may look more like a social occasion that turns out to push you forward in business. Since it is right next to the Ace, this meeting is full of powerful potential.

Nine of Spades can mean various things. It may say “no” to your specific question, while at the same time saying look to the other cards for a direction toward what you really most want. Or, on the other hand, it may say, you are finishing one thing, and now is a time for renewal.

The Ten of Clubs indicates a time to heal and recharge. For you, this may mean drawing happiness, energy and encouragement from relationships.

The Jack of Hearts is a fun-loving person. I feel this is the card that represents you, yourself, and you are looking happily toward that healing-recharging card.

So, Mary, what we have here is a very social period, where your connections with other people are highlighted. Your own talent and power are in the forefront now, as well, and are instrumental in how things are playing out. Something that no longer serves you is coming to an end, and this is ultimately good, as it allows the new energy to flow into your life. Concerning your question, I advise you to see in your mind and feel in your heart the conversation with Stephen King. Feel the feelings that you will experience in that conversation, as if it is actually happening now. As you do, this will reveal to you information that will assist you as you move forward.
