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.
