Card of the Day – Weekend Edition – May 16-18, 2014

InquirerFive of WandsPerdo2

As I suspected yesterday, the energy for changes and emotional reactions was simply the start of a rather unstable time period with some new challenges and issues thrown in to make for an interesting mix, the outcome at this point is still uncertain and fluid.  This uncertainty and a tendency towards disagreements and conflicts is going to be very strong this week, and individuals show be very careful with family members, friends, co-workers etc because it is going to be a rather dicey emotional time.

The Inquirer Card represents the person asking the question (in this case me, the readers, etc) and the Five of Kitty Wands show five kittens have a “kitten rumble” as they do, play fighting but learning how to seriously defend themselves and attack others as needed, when they are older.  This card tends to represent disagreements, arguments, competition, confrontation both playful and serious; on the playful side look for stories about the sports-world, international games, horse-racing, gambling, Las Vegas etc.. This is a good weekend for playing board games with your family or enjoying peaceful challenges with friends at the Bingo Hall.

However, it is not a good weekend to try to have a serious family discussion on a disputed topic or a good time to bring up anything controversial or negative, this is the sort of weekend when Sunday Dinner with the family can easily devolve into a shouting match if Uncle Ben brings up politics and another family member takes an opposite view.  In fact, I think people in general are going to be walking around with a certain degree of an inner “looking for a target” emotionally.  Some of this is likely to be the results of any sudden or serious changes/transformations that have been taking part (or have taken part) over the last few days.  Those sort of sudden shifts tend to make people edgy, tired and more likely to fly off the handle or become defensive and combative.  This energy is simply going to push those buttons and make it easier to go over the edge.

The Pethro Rune is also called “The Dice Cup” and is the reason why the potential outcomes of anything are going to be hard to call this weekend, which is a another really good reason for trying put a personal hold on any temptations to react emotionally or combatively  with others, because this is a weekend when the “butterfly effect” is likely to be in full swing.  That means that situations and issues may arise for the strangest and least obvious of reasons; of course we can’t possibly control our every comment, feeling or expression just because it “might” upset the balance of things; especially when we don’t know for sure what that balance is.  But we can be careful to try not to poke sticks in hornet’s nest, this is so NOT the weekend to deal with simmering issues, ongoing problems or much of serious anything if can be avoided.

If an issue or situation simply MUST be sorted this weekend, it should be done with intention, calm and the understand that others may easily take things the wrong way and it is up to you, the person who has had this warning, to try to keep things calm and to influence the dice to roll in your direction.

Everything I have just written applies to the international/current events scenes only on a larger and more epic scale, this is a weekend when conflicts, disputes, competitions and confrontations can either continue to play around in the background of the world stage or suddenly surge forward into something very serious and not playful at all.  The Dice-Cup rune is associated by some people (me included) with the Norse Trickster God Loki, who is also associated with fire and sometimes Foxes.  Yesterday’s Torch rune is one kind of fire, the sort that can bring light and illuminate a situation or light the fuse that sets it off into total chaos.  The energy of this weekend gives the potential for both, foxes are known for being clever and cunning and I suspect that both traits are going to be needed by those in power trying to negotiate this new set of combative energies that is going to dominate the weekend. 

This time, while again I feel that Russia V Ukraine is one place to watch, it is not the only danger area; there is going to be a lot of intense competition behind the scenes this weekend and it won’t all be in one places, as various People/Tribes/Nations try to sort out a new or emerging situation.  I am feeling a strong pull towards the economic realm on this one, even those it isn’t showing up directly in the cards yet – but the potential for a shift in the world of macro-economics that leads to some strong disagreements or worse developing over the next week or two feels very strong.  Look for more stories about this growing issue and the underlying reasons for some of the more obviously physical/real-world conflicts (violent, political and corporate) to have their actual background in this underlying economic situation.  Some of this economic situation/change is already known but just not widely understood, but it feels like some of the consequences and actual effects on the ground have yet to manifest.

I’ll be keeping a close eye on the cards and runes over the next couple of weeks to see if money/economics/currencies etc comes back up to the service, but for this weekend it looks like the inter-personal conflicts both for individuals and for groups of people, and their uncertain outcome is likely to be the main energy we will feel in our daily lives and in the international news.
