Card of the Day Late Edition-Monday-March 25, 2013

I had a rather long day today – so I’m just now getting to the card reading but since things have been moving so quickly in the Current Events world I wanted to at least do a quick check in.

I think the Cards Liberation and No, almost speak for themselves…

On the Liberation Card we see the young couple escaping jail and fleeing together to freedom on horse back.  A wonderful card, suggesting an end to bondage, physical and/or mental entrapment and physical/mental/spiritual freedom.

Sadly the NO card throws all this in our faces, while I think individuals can simply prepare themselves for another rather dull and frustrating day(s) as this energy probably goes through at least part of tomorrow – I think on a Current Events level this is much more worrying.

Both in regards to the events in Cyprus – which is not now actually rescued and free but still imprisoned and in terms of various political and physical conflicts dotting the Earth at the moment, many supposedly in the name of Liberation.

These cards suggest bad news for places like Syria, Cyprus, Spain, Catalonia, Egypt, China and even the US where issues of Freedom and/or independence have been issues, some of which have come to violence.

I think these cards are also about the EU as a whole, especially given the way that last week’s readings seemed to be centered on that topic (and world economics in general).

This could also mean, on an economic level that stocks, currencies etc, are not going to “liberate themselves” into runs quite yet; though they may be under pressure to do so.

It also suggests that any attempts to “liberate” money in bank runs are likely to be met with a wall of negative actions to try to prevent that from happening.

Remember, this energy should hold for about 24 to 48 hours, but Monday’s often set the tone for the week (the other reason I’m doing a late reading).

So this whole week looks to be setting us up both personally and international for a push-pull of forces trying to break out and a big negative wall that tries to prevent them from doing so.

Not a good week to plan an exciting vacation break-away but perhaps a good time to continue to center on the home and what is already inside it.  Instead of a prison, make it a place of warmth and safety this week.

 

Card of the Day – Weekend Edition – Feb 1-3, 2013

Uruz2

Wow, well today’s Main Energy is exactly the same as yesterday’s Friendship, combined with not just one but BOTH of the major decision cards in this deck; my feeling is that some “international” friendship is really being “weighed in the Balance/Judged/Fated” (Scales Card) to make a decision (The Puzzle/Decision which must be made/choice of the individual/tribe/nation).

So we have friendship(s) balanced between a decision/judgment that they may be pretty powerless to avoid (will be made for them) and a decision that only they can make (must be made, can not be avoided).

The rune is Uruz – ancient Ice Age Cattle, usually designating Strength/Power/healing though also the sense of the “Ancient Bull” or “Ancient Cow.”  Large figures of strength that would tend to over-shadow anything else in the same room with them.

So I am getting the image of at least one (or more) Peoples/Tribes/Nations whose Friendship(s) are being tested both by Judgments/Karma/Decisions beyond their control and by the actions they may be about to take.  There feels like there is more than one layer to all this and at the heart of the matter may be the age-old contests of “Strength” to find out who really is the biggest bull in the China Shop?

In the way, the energies of the past week just continue to flow into the weekend, but now the Conflict looks to be seriously coming to some sort of decision(s) points; very strong forces are going to pull things in certain directions.  Some of these forces will simply be beyond the control of those affected to resist, however they will ultimately make their own decisions on how to respond to these outside pressures.  With contests of Strength being weighed against being Strong enough to resist the temptations that threaten the Friendships.

So, Current Events wise, a weekend when nearly anything can happen; especially when it comes to the friendships (treaties/alliances etc) between nations and their relative positions of Strength towards each other (both real and as perceived).

While I would be surprised at all out war breaking out just now, the pieces of the “Puzzle” feel like they are starting to fit together in a way that may form the power blocks, if such a conflict does take place.  It still doesn’t have to, the Bulls and Rosters could still see the snake in the grass that threatens everyone and go home; but the cards suggest this course is becoming less likely as each day goes by.

For a personal reading, this is a good weekend for individuals to spend time with friends and continue to forge strong friendships.  However, it is also a good time to “weigh up” some of the relationships in your life and there may be some people you need to make decisions about.  Some of these decisions will be very positive, to bring people closer into to your friendship network but other decisions may be more painful; that of letting people go who no longer resonate well with you and your family.

Again, some of these “choices” may be “made for you” (scales card) and if someone chooses to leave, then probably accepting their decision and letting them go may be the better road to follow.  Other choices will be yours alone, and that isn’t just about Friendship but all issues of partnerships and alliances (including mundane work) that may come up in the next few days.

The Uruz rune should give everyone strength to keep forging on ahead no matter what, both in terms of the personal events and whatever is happening in the greater world scene as well.
