Today’s Card is The Stranger and the rune-stave Wunjo is usually translated as Joy/Clan Banner or Battle Flag.
In my audio card reading on tonight’s show at Monday 8pm EST on the Time Monk Radio Network There is a weekly reading in which The Stranger is also the first and primary card for the week.
So, we in effect have the same card starting off the week in two different readings, therefore I am pretty sure that something New is coming onto the Current Event’s Stage during this time period.
As I say in the Audio Reading it can be a new person/leader/idea/situation or a brand new (and unexpected) twist on an older issue – that seems, well …strange.
In the overall reading this card combined with cards like the Voyage and Battle and friendships suggestion a possible unusual alliance or perhaps a military/defensive build up where you would not usually expect one.
This is also likely to be a week when the word “Strange” and “Stranger” are likely to be heard in the news a lot. This may express itself in scientific discoveries, incidents, pairings (unusual marriages or families), “famous” people who seem to come out of no-where, corporations that offer “strange” devices etc., etc..
The Joy Rune suggests that at least in some quarters the main “Stranger” being picked up by the cards (twice now for card of the week) will bring Joy or Happiness at least to some of those affected or aware of the new Person/Situation/Theory etc.
However, I also have to go back to the over-all audio reading with the Warrior and mention the rune’s other signifier of Battle Flag/Clan Banner; which suggests that while some Individuals/Peoples/Tribe or a Nation/Group of Nations may be delighted with the new situation, others equally may not be.
We just have to wait and find out what the New Stranger entering the world scene is before deciding if it is time to jump up and down with joy or not.
I mean this is the sort of energy when surprises could be in store; I’m not really expecting science figuring out a way to break the light barrier and discover the path to warp drive in space ships – but the energy would fit that too. Especially since the weekend runes in the Audio Show are:
Gebo-Gift and Kennaz – Torch (Light/fire/boil)
The Science Fiction Geek inside me would love to see such an outcome no matter how unlikely – however, not matter what happens I think this is a week to watch.
On a personal level, be ready for strange, new and often happy making people, ideas and events coming into your life this week. This of this week as a sort of Ripley’s Believe it or Not of the year week and you’ll be fine – a time when anything might happen and probably will.
Normally I don’t chat that much about the weekly audio reading on the Cat’s Eye show, but it just so connects with today’s reading that I thought it was important. You can hear more about the audio reading by listening to the show – either live or in the You Tube Archives at Time Monk Radio.
Anyway, this gives us a bit of insight into what may be a bit of a Strange and fast-moving (that Voyage Card) week.
So hold onto your hats and stayed tuned…
