Hi everyone! I’ve had a rough few weeks with the surgery and a post operative infection but I am happy to say I am finally on the mend, I will be trying for a shorter version of card of the day this week; enough to give some information in these troubling times but probably not as much detail as usual. Today’s cards fit right into to today’s headlines and suggest that perhaps a major power or person may yet do something surprising or magically transform a situation (or try to).
First, here are the cards:
We have the Mother Card, which we know from previous readings is about nurturing energy, actual Mothers, Mother Earth and in a current events reading: Nations that Identify as The Motherland and/or have Female Leaders (Mothers of the Nation). Then we have The Kitty Magician, this Black Cat can be a person or energy of great power but he is neither good or bad, simply a force to be taken seriously, when he shows up in a reading, ANYTHING is possible and might happen. He is neither a domestic cat nor a wild cat, he makes his own way in the world by having power over birds, fish, lizards and mice (all the suit energies of the kitty tarot land). Individuals who get this card are likely to be intelligent, charming, patient, agile, have keen insights and he (or she) knows how to use them.
My first impression on seeing this cards, is while the over-all energies are going to influence everyone today (and to some degree this week); I think it a very specific glad on Mother Russia (the Country/Empire) and the leader Putin (The Magician). I am also feeling a tug towards Angela Merkel as the “Mother” of “The Fatherland” aka Germany, who is also a Magician of sorts in her own way. I am not sure if these two are going to work together in some way to create a surprise or perhaps a way out of the current situation with the downed airliner but it would not surprise me. Or, I could be picking up on two different issues that are both affected by this energy, one Western Europe and one in Eastern Europe.
But the most powerful tug I am feeling is to Watch Putin this week, the Magician may have a trick or two to pull out of his hat; even when seemingly backed against a wall with no way out. Just what exactly he is going to do, I have no idea at this point but it feels truly connected to this Magician Card in someway. This could be anything from using new technology (that looks like magic) to a surprising diplomatic move that throws the dice back into Russia’s favor. It could be a military threat of some sort or even a treaty suddenly signed with Germany that creates an entirely new situation that affects not just the plane crash (and the situation in the Ukraine).
I don’t know why, but I just can’t shake this German/Russian connection here, though it may be Russian/EU as well since, the EU often is “Greater Germany” in these readings.
Other female identified nations (or female heads of state) are likely to be affected this week, as our Mothers and children (expect stories about them; magical and surprising events are likely to happen anyway; stage magicians may be in the news and expect a lot of “news” to be “magical thinking” otherwise known as propaganda, this week. Of course this energy is also going to affect other on-going situations like the Middle East Conflict (especially Gaza) where Mothers vs. Power may play out on You Tube, when the women decide enough is enough and may take action to try to affect the situation.
Magical weeks are tricky, thankfully this week’s energy is modified by the Mother Card coming first which suggests over-all more female/nurturing magic than if the Father Card were in the first place; think of the magical transformations that Mother’s create for their children when they take flour and make a batch of cookies or bed sheets to help a small child create a hiding place under a table. Not all of Mother’s magical transformations are positive but many of them area; this is a week when you may see the Magic of Mother Nature (Mother Earth) in some wonderful and unexpected ways. Unexpected Auroras would not surprise me, but also be on the look out for the magical mixed with the scary like geological activity or other “natural” surprises.
Individuals can expect a week in which female/mothering energy dominates but it upended at times by the more masculine/power issues of the Magician; especially in his tendencies to take control and try to manipulate situations in his favor.
A great week for Mothers, children and Magicians of all sorts – from Stage Magic to the technicians of the Internet….
