Today’s Cards are The Body and Knight of Kitty Wands, with Ansuz (Mouth/Communication) for the rune-stave.
The Body Card is often about matters of health or sometimes the physical world, and that is one of the reasons it looks like an illustration in an old medical text. It can also be about getting to the real issues involved in a situation, rather than only seeing things “skin deep.”
Now the Knight of Kitty Wands is very interesting, she is a rather loud kitty who always has something to say about everything. She may be very bright and intelligent for a kitty, but her constant mouthing off means that more often than not she gets put outside to spend the night on a tree rather than inside by the warm hearth-fire.
In a reading, she represents a direct, blunt, opinionated person why may be very knowledgeable but lacks feeling for others or understanding of how to communicate the information without being overbearing a dictatorial. This person may be highly logical in most of their thinking and really able to see actual solutions but will often be ignored or down-right rejected because they balance and consideration for the feelings of others.
Now when you combine this with the Ansuz rune which is literally translated as Mouth and associated with communication, the cards seem to be sending the message that there may be some sort of push, announcement, suggestion, advisement, directive etc coming up in the news that is about some situation that could affect public health (or the bodies of people).
The problem is that whatever this information is, it may be provided in such a heavy-handed, dictatorial and inconsiderate manner that it will be rejected by people out-of-hand.
Even if the basic idea may be a sound one, the execution of the situation has been so over-bearing that people are just likely to turn away from it.
The Ansuz rune is not only about communication (or THE MESSAGE) but it also often associated with the God Odin/Woden who is in charge of communications, battles and death in the Germanic world view.
My first impression is that this reading is directly about something happening in the US Health Care Reform situation in the next 24 to 48 hours when there is likely to be some sort of announcement from those in authority that may be logical, sensible or otherwise seemingly wise, but will be delivered in such a heavy-handed and dictatorial way that the public is likely to simply reject it and refuse to go along. It could also be that the “solution” or “suggestions” are not really helpful at all, they simply seem that way to a self-justifying group of people who believe that they are always right.
This could however also be about some major release of “health” information about some particular food, disease, human activity or other issue that has been “found” in a “study” to be a big issue/threat/positive or whatever for the health of individuals – and while it may be “true” the message will be delivered in such a dictatorial “thou shalt not – whatever” that people will just ignore the advice for the most part.
I am reminded of a “study” that suggested boiled and steamed food was better for a certain group of patients and the doctor in the article saying “these people will simply have to learn to like their food boiled, they will have to just get used to it.” Yeah right, go eat your own endless diet of stew and steamed vegetables doctor…that’s how most people would react to such “advice” as opposed to “these people may find they feel better and that their symptoms improve if they try eating mostly boiled and steamed dishes as the greater part of their diet.” Same exact advice, totally different presentation…
What ever the cards are specifically flagging here, this is time period when good communications may be thrown off course by people feeling a great need to get their points across to others in a very forceful and direct manner, which may be off-putting to the person receiving the messages. If this happens to you, try to listen to the actual information and not the tone of the presentation before reacting, if need be walk away and think about it for a while before deciding if the INFORMATION alone merits some considerations or actions on your part, while ignoring the way in which is it dictated to you.
This could really help individuals avoid yesterday’s destruction or wild rushes to judgment, and instead result in actual solutions to the actual problems in question.
