Card of the Day, Wednesday October 26, 2011

Today’s cards fell out of the deck, the same way they did yesterday only this time the  Birth card was solidly on top.  These cards, Birth and Union indicate another energy swing away from Death and Destruction, though what exactly is being born is unclear.

My gut sense tells me these cards indicate a “birth” of something related to the European Union will be a major story today.  Either the EU is going to come up with some grand plan to try to reinvent itself and/or it will be forced to be “re-born” as something else because it falls apart when no decisions can be made. 

Again, it doesn’t take cards or a psychic to really make this prediction, a glance at the headlines will do, but having the cards bring it up in such an obvious way over the last few days means it is something very important, if not the most important issue affect world/western world energies today.

Once again, these cards can also relate to stories about children, marriage, partnerships and even romance.  This past weekend’s cards about children/fertility and sexuality may be involved in this story.  Then I felt the direct energy was about both the EU and the ongoing disaster in Japan and the effects on both mothers and children.  I won’t be surprised if more of these stories come out today as well, though again I’m mostly drawn the card of “Birth” as something new (or seeming to be new) in an EU/Symbolic context (with the word Union being pretty obvious) rather than actual babies this time.

Now on a personal level, these cards are two fantastic energies that can be used towards anything from the physical and loving creation of new human beings, to the birth of new projects and partnerships.

Going to be interesting to see how the cards progress over the rest of the week, once again it looks like two very different types of energy battling it out (birth and destruction, union and death) along with a healthy dose of falsehood and distortion, making the waters even murkier and more difficult to get to the bottom of. 

At least today’s energies have very positive potential benefits, depending on how those in charge, CHOOSE to use them and/or which stream of the Union card they decide to dam or allow to flow.

Card of the Day – Tuesday October 25, 2011

Well, today’s cards are a little different, for one thing they all “fell out of the deck” with The Liar on top with the other two on the sides.  Though I normally only read one card (or at most two) on weekdays, I’ve learned to let the cards lead the way and today they want to give out three.

We’re having bad storms here in Ireland, so let me sum up what I think these portend and try to get them up before the Internet goes out again.  Obviously this is an important reading and want to get it out there as soon as possible, I may do an update later if events warrant it and I can get on-line.

Anyway, The Liar card we have seen quite a few times in the last weeks and once again it symbolizes falsehood, someone mis-representing something, out-right lying and distractions.  The Joker dances with his mask of humor all the while smirking at how stupid he things we are, not yet realizing his mask has slipped.  Meanwhile, he keeps just dancing harder, trying to distract from what is behind the curtain, the real issues that he is trying to keep the viewer from noticing.  That is where what is really important is being hidden.

As in the last few times he has shown up, I’m getting the impression that his distraction dance is getting more frantic and the little doll in his hand, just gets creepier every time I view this card.  I put this card larger because I feel this attempt at miss-direction is the over-all energy of the day and in a major way, a bounce back and response to revelations that started two weeks ago.

The second (and smaller) card is Peace, now this card has seldom (if ever) showed up yet in these readings, but normally it is a very good card.  The lovely stained glass windows, the sun streaming through; this card is usually delightful rest between labors and spiritual growth.  It does however, have the negative side of stagnation and stasis.  Total Peace, is only found in the grave and yesterday’s Death Card, makes me wonder about this card’s placement in today’s reading. 

My gut also tells me that something about today’s cards strongly suggests that “peace” will be “lied about” in some way.  Either that some problem or war will be hailed as over, but it will be a lie; the news about the withdrawal from Iraq is already “out there” as is the “victory” in Libya, so these are not new things, but they may be played up today as distractions from the real issues.  There may also be other stories in the news about things “being at peace,” when the are actually not and/or they may be peaceful but devoid of life and any meaning they may have had in the past. 

The final card is “Yes” it is also smaller because I felt that it was also a qualifying card for the Liar, but in this case I think it is saying “yes” there is a Big Lie going on out there and Yes, Peace is going to be affected.  That could also mean that an attempted peace or treaty may be endangered by a lie, or built on a lie – here once again I am feeling a tug towards the EU situation and the Euro/world finance situation but since I live here that is on my mind a lot these days. 

So, this could indicate a nod in that direction as well, as well as finally mentioning the Church on the Peace Card.  There may be more revelations coming out concerning the Vatican/State Church today on the topics of banking/finance and/or children/children’s issues.  In both cases, lies are being cooked up, and the State of Italy is probably deep in there as well.

Still for individuals today need not be a nasty or totally bad day; the outside energies may be grim, bu the peace and yes cards can be played up in our personal lives in order to defeat the Liar where he stands.  By making them the larger cards, you say yes to peace and light in your own life and allow them to help you take your eyes off The Liar’s distractions. 

As always, on days when the Liar is in play, avoid making business or serious contracts today.  If you can’t avoid them, make sure to read the fine print in great detail and trust your gut, if something does not feel right then avoid it,  or at least ask to think on it over night.

Use the Peace Card as an image during meditation, but pay attention to the news for hints of what is behind the curtain.  Notice what the media is NOT talking about because hints of what you need to know for personal safety may be there.  Use the Yes card, to give yourself permission to do the things you know in your heart are correct and you can avoid a lot of the grief stored up in today’s energy, re-direction I think is the key for individuals today. 

May you have a peaceful and quiet day today!

Card of the Day – Weekend Edition-Oct 21-24

Well today’s card’s certainly indicate an energy shift coming for the weekend!  Although we have had a couple of these cards before; taken together I think they show at least a change of what will be emphasized in the Main Stream Media during this time period.  That does not mean the ongoing situations of the past week will go away, just that there will be another new issue coming into the picture.

The First Card – Never and/or The Raven, is both a blocking card (in that something either will never happen or seem like it will never happen) and a Messenger card – as in “Quoth the Raven” or “Odin’s Ravens” who go about the earth and bring back messages to Valhalla. 

I’m sensing that in this case, the card is both; that there may be an unexpected blockage somewhere and that there is a message that goes along with it.  What it is, I’m not exactly sure but it feels rather dark; that’s because there is a much brighter “message” card in this deck and it didn’t show up.  Instead we get the more cryptic version with its usually negative connections..hmmmm..

Being right next door to the Mother card, this could signal two rather obvious directions to look for the Raven’s message.  The first one would be mothers and children directly, something happening that impacts directly on the maternal bond or the smallest family unit, which in nature is a mother and her off-spring (yes Dad’s are important, but the young can’t survive without nursing at the youngest ages, so if there is only one parent in the natural world, Mom has to be it or the babies perish). 

The other obvious reading (and they are not mutually exclusive) is the continuation of The Mother as a symbol for Mother Earth.  This card has shown up as that place-marker before, perhaps because unlike a standard tarot deck, this deck simply does not have a “World” card and The Mother would be a very close match, especially in her material and life-giving aspects.

Before going further, lets examine that final card which came up about a week ago in a more combative reading.  This card, The Libido; is the card for sexuality, life force and the general vigor of life.  When it is right next to the Mother Card, the think that strikes me most is a possible threat to fertility either of actual human women (and perhaps animals) and/or The Earth herself.

The last time this card came up, it seemed to deal with the affairs of men (the two peacocks fighting and missing the snake that threatens them and possibly the pea-hen).  There was still the mating aspect, but the female is outside the picture while the men-folks display for her amusement.  This time, while the picture on the card hasn’t changed, it is right next to the female in all her joy of fertility as a women who has already borne children and may or may not be in the process of actively creating another.  The child on her lap, and the arm of her brother; both hold the secret of her womb from us. 

I believe the artist did this on purpose as it is not for us to know what potentials hide within the womb, until they are exposed to the light.  In Spanish a women giving birth is said to “dar la luz” or to “give light,” and I’m getting this image here.  The light stays hidden until the time is right, meanwhile the concentration is upon the children already born.

To sum up, I think these cards show both a weekend energy shift away from both the active/male/destruction energies, and the inward depressive (cave) energies of the last week. 

Instead the focus is on the issues of Earth Our Mother and her children; there is some threat there that the Raven Card is carrying and it is likely to have a direct impact on both fertility and the joy of life.  I’m feeling a possible connection to some information that may come out of Japan’s nuclear accident, but that isn’t the whole picture (though it will be part of it). 

Something may be happening to human fertility would be one way to read these cards, although the fertility of the earth (crops, fresh water, clean air or the reverse of famine, sewage, pollution) could also be the issue.  Since both are often connected, this may be one reason I am having a hard time sorting these issues out.

While this may be a distraction from the past week’s news, it will be different from the previous, human attempts by the main stream media to divert attention away from the obvious real issues.  This is, in a sense, a new distraction with a REAL ISSUE, one that may seem to jump out of nowhere and catch the powers-that-be by surprise.  Pay attention when the news is fresh, because after a short while there may be some strong attempts to downplay or cover-up/obscure the issue.

Again, I’m not exactly sure what it is, but it connects women-children-the Earth-fertility in some way…watch for stories on things like GMO seeds and their effects on gestation or reports of birth rate declines, that sort of thing.

Meanwhile, on a personal level; for once these cards are harder to read and I really feel this was more of a macro-energy reading, some of which will affect people. 

However, it may be a good weekend to spend time with your children, but perhaps not the best time to create them (though if you do manage such an awesome task, meditate on the life-giving aspects of both The Mother and The Libido and leave the Raven to take his negative message elsewhere in your own lives as a couple).

A good weekend to celebrate that which is colorful in life (the peacocks) with visits to art galleries, doing your own creative work or “mothering” along projects already started and left lying about the family workshop.  Both women and men may feel an urge to become re-attached to The Mother by simple acts such as cooking, gardening or walking in the mountains or by the sea-shore.

Take care and have a peaceful, restful time this weekend; enjoy the break in the nearly constant stream of negative energy from the past week by grabbing on to the positive energies of the last two cards.  Even our Raven can be positive for individuals, Odin is a God of wonder, magic and communications as well as war and death.  So take those aspects and blend them with the other two cards and you can have a really great time with those you love and care for.

That is your cards for the weekend!
