Query: Where are L’s earbuds?
Context: I wanted to practice reading today and asked my wife if she had anything in particular that she wanted to know. She replied that she still couldn’t find her earbuds, which she lost about a week ago. I then grabbed a single die, generated Four Mothers, populated the Shield Chart, authenticated the chart, and began the reading.
Court: My initial impression of the Judge was that it suggested the earbuds were in our bed, as I immediately interpreted Conjunctio as a location where she “joins” or “intermingles” with someone. I interpreted the Right Witness as suggesting that my wife had, up until this point, given up on finding them, which she confirmed while adding that Cauda Draconis could signify the bed in terms of a place where we retire for the evening or “end” the day. I interpreted the Left Witness (Laetitia) as suggestive of the joy that she will feel once she finds them. This figure, in particular, coupled with the Judge, led me to believe that she would, in fact, eventually find them. I struggled to interpret the meaning of the Sentence (Puella) in context to the Judge, though my wife suggested that this figure could refer to the pleasure that she would derive from getting them back, as she enjoys using them to listen to music, audiobooks, and podcasts.
Viae Punctorum: Via Puncti Aeris traces back to Fortuna Minor, which I struggled to interpret, while Via Puncti Aquae traces back to Conjunctio which I felt was again pointing to the bed as the possible location (intimacy and emotional bonding).
Triplicities: In light of my initial impression, I felt that the Puella within the 1st Triplicity represented her, Puer me, and Conjunctio the two of us together in “union”. While I struggled to interpret the 2nd Triplicity, the 3rd Triplicity (places most frequented by the querent) appeared to reinforce the Judge and 1st Triplicity which housed the same figures, albeit in a more explicit order. The 4th Triplicity did not feel relevant to the query.
Chart Sum: I interpreted the sum of this chart (91) as suggesting that she would find them relatively soon.
Result: After concluding the reading, we went into the bedroom and looked in, under, and around the bed with no results. I also checked in her nightstand but didn’t see them there either. I then checked in a few other places around the room, before calling it quits, while she looked in a few other places that matched her interpretation of the chart, such as around the front door. She additionally called the café where we sometimes meet, to no avail. I then laid on the bed and studied the chart once more to see if had perhaps I missed a clue. Just out of curiosity, I checked to see what figure would have fallen in the 2nd house of the House Chart had I done one. Conjunctio!? I then thought to myself “You GOTTA be here!”. I got up and checked in my wife’s nightstand a second time, and lo and behold, there they were, in the back of the drawer, peeking out from behind a bag of Ricola.
