The first tea time of Looseleaved has come and gone! The teapot and cups were just as perfect as expected, and the drinkers were more enthusiastic than expected as well. The drinkers for this first reading were Jennifer Eng (Here’s The Dish), Mina Choe (Satirical Society of Scintillating Sentences and Haikus and Things Askew), Glenn Jackson (Insert Column Name Here), and Elise Mills (Musique Nonstop). After a divine choice (I decided who was closest to the number I was thinking of), the tea spoke to Elise. The managed leaves are below.
Rabbit: Fertility and newness
Crane (Interpreted as swan): Romance or someone graceful
Alligator: False friendship lurking in your professional life
Flying Insect: Distractions
Ladder: Improvement in your professional life
Triangle: Three-sided relationship
Squid (Interpreted as an octopus): Warning
The feeling of peeling off the wrapping to something new is a much satisfying feeling. Remember this as you move forward in your life, for you will be experiencing this abundance of cleanness, of turning over something currently undone. It will be a venture into a new world for you. It will involve a sense of love for you, I know it, which is good. The beneficial nature of your transition will be clear. Beware, however, of what may be lurking in the corners of rooms and in the cobwebs of things unseen. The spiders and goblins that lurk in all the people of the world may be more prevalent in some; be wary of them. Do not let them draw you away from your path and the glowing people that may come into your view. Especially avoid untrustworthy humans when it comes to those you hold closest. Don’t let them get in your way. Life isn’t long enough to let insignificant people stand in the way of what’s important to you.
