As you can see on past diaries, the goal is to find positive outcomes with “actionable intel” on how to get them. Here I use a different method than yer olde new agey stuff. I actually go to facade.com to read stuff. For many reasons, but the one I want to highlight is that my reading here is just for fun, motivation and food for thought
So first the usual good news, Success, luck, and happiness, expected for us Biden voters.
But now, as promised...
I have spent a good amount of time looking at who votes Trump and why, to see if there is any way to get them to stop enabling a fascist COVID POTUS.
The short of it is maybe… but is not something we can say, they won’t believe a word we say. They need to believe we will be FAIR when Trump loses and — unlike Trump -— not be vindictive and keep a grudge. They need to see consequences for those who broke the law, or they will support a crony corrupt fascist again. But those who were merely hateful ? Alas, if we convince them most who supported Trump will be left alone but the law breakers, they might not vote Trump. But they will get out and vote when it gets to self preservation.
But let’s get to the Tarot… First a 3 Fates, with Past, Present, Future. I’m going to show just the past here, the present we know and the future shows they might listen to us.. maybe
The left card represents an important element of the past. Five of Pentacles (Worry): Hard times brought on by addiction, wasteful spending, ill health, or an outside event. Rejection, loneliness, and the need for comfort. May suggest unemployment, a catastrophe in personal finance, or a turn for the worse in business.
We all left the 90s running high on a stock market rally, excellent economy, balanced budget. GW Bush squandered the 90s wealth while Republicans applauded and believed the economy was great. Up to 3 months before the 2008 crisis anyone who said Bush’s economy was bad was laughed at by the Republicans. This is old history but try to put yourself into the mind of a Bush supporter. To Bush supporters, the 2008 market crash came out of nowhere. All of a sudden no more magic refinancing. Wasteful spending: Their houses, cars, way too big for their means, that they were talked into buying by unscrupulous bankers were repossessed. Unemployment: The economy had no jobs. Illness: Aging boomers finding out US healthcare was not good for the unemployed. Or for the barely employed, on the gig and part time economy. Addiction: An opioid epidemic and the meth usage got way worse, Rejection, loneliness red staters started dying at a rate much higher than normal. While the Bush voters now denied having ever liked the man, they could not get into the “Hope / Change” bandwagon.
What I saw in several spreads was bitter Disappointment
Five of Cups (Disappointment): Suffering a loss and wishing for what might have been. Being crippled by sadness, grief, and vain regret. Indecision brought on by the feeling that you made the wrong choice. Ignoring what you still have. May suggest a broken relationship or tragedy. May also suggest a gift, inheritance, opportunity, partnership, or marriage, but one that falls below expectations.
fear, regret but mostly Disappointment
The World, when reversed: Incompleteness and shoddy design. A great work betrayed. Insecurity, fear of change, and the failure to reach goals. Regret and disappointment.
Alas, instead of examining how the US got there and taking responsibility for their own blind cheering of GWB, their reaction to the recession was, at first, to reject reality. Through opioids or Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Jade Helm or whatever BS was on Fox
Knight of Pentacles, when reversed: The essence of earth behaving as fire, such as molten magma: One slow to action, even in the most urgent circumstances. A force of nature that cannot be diverted from the wrong path. The voice of duty and honor utterly divorced from reality. Lack of imagination and the complete unwillingness to try a different approach, even if the face of complete failure. Idleness and stagnation.
This only got worse, while we all cheered Gay Marriage and DACA, the conservatives were furious. Elitism and snobbishness. below is tarot’s word for bigotry and racism. While scared about their own nest egg eroding and their prospects for long term security being threatened by unemployment and recession, they saw people they didn’t value — minorities -— getting help from the government. To them this was rubbing salt in the wound.
Nine of Pentacles (Gain), when reversed: Bad luck attending material affairs. Elitism and snobbishness. Lack of discipline resulting in the erosion of security and stability. Contempt for the exact labors that brought one to a position of refinement. Dishonesty in financial matters.
Rich Republicans certainly didn’t help. To them Obama was a risk and one they couldn’t tolerate, so they started breeding suspicion and mistrust
Queen of Pentacles, when reversed: The dark essence of earth behaving as water, such as ice: A cold but generous host, driven by an overwhelming need for to accumulate and maintain opulence. A person so preoccupied with wealth and security that they can never stop to enjoy either. One who reflects the weaknesses of others, breeding suspicion and mistrust.
The rich Republicans funded the Astro Turf “Tea Party” and many other initiatives, aimed at keeping their electorate furious and suspicious of anything Obama did. This cleared the path for Putin, with undue susceptibility to outside influences
Queen of Cups, when reversed: The dark essence of water, such as a deep and foreboding lake: Discomfort with the worlds of mind and matter, leading to a retreat to the spiritual. The embrace of negative relationships, driven by the desperate fear of being alone. Devotion to fantasies and daydreams, to the exclusion of practical skills or the pursuit of knowledge. Insecurity leading to dishonor, vice, and undue susceptibility to outside influences.
The Cross and Triangle spread tells us who they are: The quiet neighbor you never suspected hated Mexicans. The petty Karen calling police on someone with skin less than 500 SPF having a barbecue. They “invested” in conservative “trickle down” and were left broke, jobless, living with their relatives...
The third card, placed to the right of the significator, represents Fire. It describes your motivations, creative energies, and the influence of passion. Re di Anfore (King of Cups), when reversed: The dark essence of water behaving as air, such as rain clouds in a gray sky: A pillar of maturity and patience, hiding a deep insecurity and an indecisive nature. One who secretly lusts for power, but lacks the courage, intellect, or work ethic necessary to take it. A charming seducer who appears innocent and understanding, but is in fact selfish and unfaithful.
The fourth card, placed below the significator, represents Water. It describes your emotions, meditations, and the influence of love and hate. 6 Dischi (Success), when reversed: Insolence and conceit with material things. Overconfidence, bad investments, and imprudent handing of acquired wealth. Contempt for those less fortunate. Deception and petty disputes driven by greed and envy.
The rest of the Cross and Triangle spread repeats the notes we’ve seen: Believing that security and identity are based primarily on the possession of material things. Coveting things and people. Living in a cloud of suspicion and prejudice. Fear of change, Unhappiness, selfishness, poverty and disruption of the home or family. Indecision, paranoia, and jealous rage. Sterility. Elitism and snobbishness (AKA bigotry and racism). Lack of discipline
But that spread shows Trump: Primed by years of astro-turf, the “party of personal responsibility” was ready to blame anyone else for their bad investment outcome. And ready to make sure any penny of help and stimulus went to “the right people”… They just needed a leader. Then they get a “Drama Queen” : Trump that can do and say what he wants (and they want too) and never gets bad consequences
Regina di Mazze (Queen of Wands): The essence of fire behaving as water, such as a rainbow: The natural embodiment of passion and sensuality, who is always the center of attention. One who reflects the desires and ambitions of others, and ignites them. A radiantly vital person, cocky and charismatic, who sees what she wants and goes after it.
The Queen of Wands here is clearly Trump. He can grab any women. Can shoot someone on 5th avenue. Can make Mexico pay for a wall… He can get away with anything… And all you have to do is vote for him. You don’t have to give away your SUV because of climate change, or think about minorities. As a matter of fact, you don’t even have to pretend to like them!
So what do they do ? They go for the cocky charismatic guy who doesn’t require any sacrifices.. And they get chaos.. Putting the Tarot as a Trump voter I got something you did to bring the situation (chaos) about.: Elect / enable / follow Trump
Cavaliere di Spade (Knight of Swords), when reversed: The dark essence of air behaving as fire, such as a tornado: A merciless and skillful warrior, unfettered by emotion or conscience. A nihilist who can refuse not even the most insurmountable of challenges. A person who inspires fear and hate through their domineering nature and the power of their presence. Speaking without tact or tolerance, in a sarcastic manner. May portend the swift initiation or conclusion of conflict, through the calamitous invocation of force.
I also got the most likely outcome of the situation given present circumstances, for Trump voters
Nabuchodenasor (The Tower of Babel), when reversed: Incompleteness and shoddy design. A great work betrayed. Insecurity, fear of change, and the failure to reach goals. Regret and disappointment.
The Tower is one of the worst cards on the tarot. And 2020 is the definition of it. We are living in it: Pestilence, conflict, discord, natural catastrophes… Upright is not so bad, but they got it reversed. Double Bad. Deaths, ruin… And no learning from it
The Trump voters and Trump can feel the reverse towers coming for them. They know he failed, and by extension they failed Their bad behavior and bad choices are coming due, and they are scared.
Is there any hope to reach them before the election ?
On my readings I always see some of them will repent after the election, but nothing will get through to them before it. In my last readings for the first time there was a maybe… There is nothing we can SAY but there is a way to still reach them. If they believe we will be Turning a blind eye to the minor infractions of others a lot of past Trumpers will welcome Biden. Getting the worst ones who violated the law is expected. Letting all the other small indignities slide is infuriating, but is key.
Here’s the 2 paths about that, from a Trump voter perspective
Path 1 : Biden Leave an America my kids can thrive on
The top left card represents the first possible outcome. Ten of Coins (Wealth): Completion of material prosperity and riches. Freedom from financial anxiety, the security of home, and the enjoyment of family. The passing of inheritance along to children, or the gaining of inheritance from parents.
Path 2 : Trump F*ck everyone, let me get mine now
The top right card represents the second possible outcome. Reyne de Baton (Queen of Batons): The essence of fire behaving as water, such as a rainbow: The natural embodiment of passion and sensuality, who is always the center of attention. One who reflects the desires and ambitions of others, and ignites them. A radiantly vital person, cocky and charismatic, who sees what she wants and goes after it.
What pulls people towards Biden (Path 1): Patience, self control, balance...
The middle left card represents the force drawing you towards the first possible outcome. Temperance (Temperance): Calm and restraint. Self-control, patience and tact in handling situations. The act of applying balanced spiritual and psychic forces to physical life.
What pulls people towards Trump (Path 2): Instant Gratification. No sacrifice, no caution, no science
The middle right card represents the force drawing you towards the second possible outcome. Cavalier de Baton (Knight of Batons): The essence of fire, such a great conflagration. One filled with vitality and passion for life. A sexy and exciting person, daring in their actions, cocky in their attitude, and utterly without fear. Absolute sincerity, coupled with violent emotions that swing wildly from one extreme to another. Boundless creativity and lust for a change of both pace and place. The rapid approach, or more likely departure, of something that sets your world ablaze. Often suggests travel or escape.
Absolute Sincerity might sound weird when referring to Trump but he calls Kamala a monster and refuses to condemn white supremacists. He tells Bob Woodward COVID is serious. Trump has no “internal voice” and will tell you what he truly thinks and then lie he was “just joking”… The same for daring and without fear, he can be both if he thinks he will get something out of it or just swing wildly for it out of his arse… But later he will quake in fear to his buddies “Am I going to die like <buddy who died of covid>”. And who doesn’t know Trump is always a great conflagration waiting to happen ?
What is interesting to note is that the Tarot tells us this is a departure perhaps even travel or escape. I hope Snowden likes sharing his bunk because it seems Putin is about to give asylum to yet another famous US law breaker…
So what will make Trumpers get Path 1 ?
The bottom card represents the critical factor that decides what will come to pass. Six of Batons (Victory), when reversed: Arrogance and dangerous overconfidence as the result of a past success. Impudence and false pride in meaningless achievements. Fear of failure coupled with false hopes. Frustration over indefinite delays and motion without progress.
They have been faithfully backing Trump and all Trump has given back is false hope… They are frustrated, tired of Trump
And what will we get, we that never liked Trump and have chosen Biden (Path 1) a long time ago ?
The card represents the critical factor for the issue at hand. The Hounds of Tindalos: The path of destiny. Karma on a grand scale. An unexpected turn of good fortune. A link in the chain of events. Success, luck, and happiness
But after victory, what to do about the Trumpers ?
one possible mask of your true destination. Two of Swords (Peace): Contradictory characteristics brought together as a means of resolving a conflict. Refusing to be ruled by negative emotions. Strife brought to a close through clarity of mind and restraint of force. Turning a blind eye to the minor infractions of others.
why a blind eye ? Because that is the “destination” for Trump voters that don’t vote, or don’t campaign for Trump or tell us the goods on how to defeat Trump:
Eight of Swords (Interference), when reversed: Learning a valuable lesson from the unexpected consequences of prior decisions. Narrowly escaping criticism, censure, and the imposition of external restrictions. Focusing on the crux of a problem and freeing oneself from a difficult situation. Coming to grips with a past failure or humiliation and moving on.
But a rat when cornered will fight for it’s life, and so will a Trumper. We must not trigger their “fight to the death” mode…
Peace. Is wise and better and way less violent..
1 -this is just for fun. If you hate new age, skip this diary. If you are a Tarot purist skip this too, you will be horrified!
2 - Not a prediction: Although I have had some pretty accurate readings, I would never say I’m predicting or forecasting anything. As you can see on past diaries, what I can see is some pretty obvious undercurrents of factors that point to an end state. The end state / outcome is not by any means guaranteed to occur
3 - “Positive, actionable”: We need you positive and committed to fight for Democracy. I will not have dire predictions here, I will just highlight trouble spots. It takes a bit of practice to read positive outcomes with “actionable intel” on how to get them.
PS: Caution Even without all the new age stuff, Tarot isn’t easy. And has it’s risks The trance states needed for Tarot reading are not as benign or forgiving as meditating or mindfulness. Reading Tarot too often / without practice might mess up with your neuro-chemistry..
