Here we are deep into January, and we are still waiting for the underwriter to complete loan approval and send the loan package to the buyer. Our latest “guestimate” for a closing date is “by February 15.”
So let’s see what the Under the Roses Lenormand by Kendra Hurteau and Katrina Hill (U.S. Games Systems, Inc.) can tell us in answer to the question: “Will the closing on Mom’s house take place by February 15, 2016?” (Remember, cards from a red suit indicate "yes", whereas cards from a black suit indicate "no.")
The Locket (Jack of Hearts / Yes)
The Tree (7 of Hearts / Yes)
The Letter (7 of Spades / No)
Gah! Once again, the cards are playing themselves “close to the vest.” I thought for a minute I was going to get an unqualified “yes” but The Letter showed up with an alternative view.
The Locket (24) – AKA The Heart in other Lenormand decks -- is typically about love and romance, happiness, bliss, contentment. I don’t know about “love and romance” but I know a lot of people who will experience “happiness, bliss, contentment” once the closing takes place!
The Tree (5) tends to be about life, health, growth, and environment. The closing will allow several people to “get on with their lives” in good health.
The Letter (27) tells us that some sort of news, message, communication, or information may yet cause a delay or obstacle to the process of loan approval and closing. Who knows what this could be? The buyer has to be allowed three days after receipt of her loan package before a closing can be scheduled, so it’s possible that the hitch will come at that point, even after the underwriter signs off on the loan.
I can hardly wait.
