This weekend is likely to be a time where negative energies are strongly at work, making real decision-making difficult on the one hand and yet forcing some decisions to be made on the other. The Never Card is also a message with a Raven on it, which can hit of difficulties, battle fields (real and symbolic) and just general kind of beating against a brick wall when trying to get things done.
The Puzzle card indicates a decision that has to be made, a door must be chosen and to not choose a door results either in stagnation or the door being chosen for you; these two energies are pretty much in opposition this weekend and the results for many people (and current events) are likely to be stressful.
The Sun card is mostly a positive, suggesting the strong light for uncovering things that are hidden as well as the last strong warmth of the Summer season in the Northern areas of the planet, however combined with the other two cards we need to remember that the sun can also represent a lot of “solar” and “little sun” things, everything from solar power to nuclear anything (energy, bombs, lasers etc). So expect the sun to figure in the news, this could even be about a major decision being made on solar power or solar operated options in terms of energy; my hope is that this does not mean the industrial world turning away from solar in a big way, but the cards do suggest this is possible.
Our runes throw the weekend’s energies into further confusion with the Dice Cup (Pethro) and Berkano (Birth/Birch Tree); the dice cup usually indicates that things are unsettled, dicey, could “roll either way” and to expect the unexpected. Many people (including me) associate this rune with Loki the Trickster, which is not a bad thing in itself but often a surprising thing. Again, I keep feeling hints of technology and/or surprising decisions here especially in terms of current events.
The Berkano rune suggests this weekend’s difficult and almost opposing energies are likely to sort out by the end to forming a new and completely different situation going into the new week; that isn’t a certainty right now but it does seem to be a likely outcome. Berkano is also about health, health as well as the Mother Goddess/Mother Earth so there may be some good news that comes out on these fronts, though I would also watch the epidemic/health news of all sorts very carefully, because again this could be a weekend when a decision is made knowingly or unknowingly on those topics.
Finally, Berkano also has hints of mountains about it (as well as the obvious image of the two breasts of the Mother) so stories about mountains or things associated with the Earth would not be a huge surprise.
But the big energy of this weekend is that Never-Negative energy that is just going to be blocking a lot of things until it is either blown away by a sudden decision or fades away when the decision occurs anyway, possibly by new information coming to light on a situation (or situations).
Good news is: expect a whole new energy pattern sometime early next week, it may not be any easier than this one, but my hunch is the blockages will have lifted and things will be moving again.
