Today’s very late card of the Day is Money (I had an appointment this morning that ended up taking all day). I wanted to make sure to get a card in for Monday since this card often sets the psychic energy “tone” for the rest of the week. This week the theme continues to be finance and money and on the world-wide level I suspect this is more reactions coming about as the result of problems in the EU, North America and a few other world economies.
This is another one where it doesn’t really take a psychic to know this is the case, but it is interesting and informative that the cards still have this as a clear winner for topic of the day/week; despite obvious efforts late last week to deflect public opinion from the topic and onto other ones (everything from Lady Gaga to possible nukes in Iran).
My husband points out that the coins buried on this card are Dark Ages, probably Saxon coins which means they will have been made with silver or gold; rather than the paper/base metal monies mostly in use today. That means they are still a “treasure” when found in the Earth by the farmer, even if they are over a thousand years old.
Most modern money on the other hand, if dug up after many centuries in the ground would be worthless other than as an interesting archeology display. Think of the difference between finding “Confederate Gold” in a Treasure test over “Confederate Dollars” and you get the idea (for non US readers, the money printed by the South during the American Civil Was was the Confederate paper dollar).
I think there is a message in here somewhere in that much of the world’s wealth appears to be fleeing back towards the ancient “dark ages” coinage as opposed to the modern sort.
It is also interesting that the last time this card came up, I felt a strong connection to the agricultural year/commodities as “wealth/money” and I’m still getting that as well. Long before people paid taxes in either silver or paper, they paid them in grain and produce, grown by the sweat of their brow as shown by the farmer plowing in this picture. Maybe he’s going to uncover the hidden treasure and maybe he won’t but either way if he is faithful in his labors and the weather is kind, he will have the “wealth” of his crops at the end of the Season.
I am sensing issues also around this sort of wealth, so expect stories about potential food shortages (as well as good harvests in some areas) as part of the money theme during the week.
The good side of the money card is of course the finding of hidden treasure, money and prosperity which almost everyone hopes to have in their life.
In a personal reading this can be a very good card, because while it may show that money is an issue; it can also indicate that money is coming (or can be found) and brought into the picture. Money in itself is simply a tool with no moral weight in either direction, how people use or even acquire money is a whole different issue and may also come up this week.
For individuals, this card not only signals potential issues around money; but a week of new opportunities open up as well. Both in terms of traditional wealth (land, food, livestock, equipment) and more recent forms (metals, coins, paper, etc) this is a good week for focusing on keeping, gaining and maintaining what you have. A good week for a personal job hunt or possible promotion, but also a good week to carefully plan out your spending in order to get through the month.
My sense is that Money/Wealth in all forms will be a big theme for this entire week; watch the stock markets but don’t get too caught up in them. Instead, watch what is happening in the background as most major stock markets these days are about the public message they send (as well as acting as a high stakes gambling den for billionaires). It is the man behind the curtain you want to watch, not the moth-eaten show presented by our old-friend the Liar/Joker who keeps coming up in these readings.
Meanwhile, pay attention to how distant decisions may affect your own life and be prepared to respond quickly if things suddenly change around you. Remember the message and the worth of those ancient coins and concentrate on both material and spiritual things that continue to hold their value over time.
That’s you card of the day, remember you can get your personal cards today or any day by getting a reading.
