As you can see on past diaries, the goal is to find positive outcomes with “actionable intel” on how to get them. Also, this isn’t entirely serious or new-agey. I actually go to facade.com to read stuff for here. It is just for fun, motivation and food for thought
For this week I’m doing a Two Paths spread, which provides insight into an important decision ahead of you, the possible outcomes, and the forces that draw you towards each of these outcomes.
The top left card represents the first possible outcome. Cavaliere di Mazze (Knight of Wands), when reversed: The dark essence of fire, such as a great conflagration: One filled with vitality and limitless appetite. A sexy and exciting person, obsessed with style and outward appearance, overconfident in their abilities, and foolhardy in their actions. A hot temper and domineering nature, coupled with a love of false drama and all things theatrical. Anxiety over remaining in one place or with one person for too long. The rapid approach, or more likely departure, of someone or something that ruptures your world. Often suggests travel as the result of discord, or cruel indifference.
Gee who could it be that’s departing, obsessed with style and outward appearance, overconfident, foolhardy, drama king ? Someone that ruptured our world ? Travel here is not really travel, more like distance. GTFO Trump and don’t let the door hit you on your way out
The top right card represents the second possible outcome. Fante di Dischi (Page of Discs): The essence of earth, such as a mountain: The surprising appearance of new prosperity and opportunities for advance in the physical world. One who delights in the pleasures of the body, material things, and nature. The embrace of hard work, realistic goals, and scholarly perseverance as a means to create solid achievement. Dependability, trust, and a studious nature. May portend a new job or promotion.
While the first outcome was wonderful, with Trump leaving, the second one is even better. Reality, hard work, scholars… That was the 12th century Tarot name for science. Studious nature. Research. Trust, dependability… Now how do we get those ??!
The middle left card represents the force drawing you towards the first possible outcome. Fante di Anfore (Page of Cups), when reversed: The dark essence of water behaving as earth, such as a wellspring: An unexpected new relationship that is childish and foolish. An idle dreamer oblivious to the realities of the world. Moodiness, sad reflection, and retreat from society. Seduction and deception in personal and business relationships.
LOL, even the Tarot spirits know that the only person to blame fro Trumps failure to secure a second term is himself. We know Trump is moody. We know he is isolating himself. The WH is down to cool-aid drinkers and next of kin, says Jim Acosta. But I would extend most of the same to his followers. They are all childish, foolish, reality-impaired, moody. And the ones to blame for their election blues. This damage was all self inflicted!
The middle right card represents the force drawing you towards the second possible outcome. 6 Spade (Science), when reversed: Conceit and intellectual pride. Being stuck in a problem which has no apparent solution. Frustration and anxiety that are left unsettled. Travel and exploration are delayed.
Here I see in 2016 we were “stuck in a problem which has no apparent solution”. We spent 4 years frustrated, with unsettled anxiety. Exploration was delayed, i.e. science, research, etc.. all went into limbo during the Trump regime. I also see a cautionary tale: Conceit and Elitism might have helped bring those past 4 years. I don’t want to derail this diary but you can see more here.
So yes, this force, the envy of the Right wing intelligentsia, the red state Trumper anger towards the coastal elites and our own lack of addressing it properly is a key factor here, keeping us from such a delicious outcome #2. We will get outcome #1, it is pretty much a given, after the last 4 years of failure from Trump. Outcome #2 might not come as soon or as easily as we want though. We need to heal IMHO. But here I’m not sure. The Tarot here could mean that we should be “tough love” and actually BE CONCEITED. Could mean that we should show our frustration and anxiety. That we should stop giving right wingers a free ride for their awful behavior this past decade. So let’s look at the last card
The bottom card represents the critical factor that decides what will come to pass. 3 Dischi (Works): The commencement of business, commercial transactions, or employment. The constructive use of creative talents, and the expression of artistry in workmanship. Skill and labor turned to the crafting of things of value. Using the conventional as a medium for expressing the exceptional, in order to build something of great renown and glory. .
We need to get jobs going, get our creative juices flowing and use all our Skill and labor to craft things of value. Only by seeing the value we coastal elites Hollywood weirdos with our fancy PhDs bring to the country we will get both outcomes #1 and #2 and have the other half of the country not hate us so much…
Bottom line: We need to show our skill and our value, and make the Trumpies understand why you do not put a game show host in charge of a pandemic
So what are your thoughts ? Do you agree with my takes ? Do you see anything else ?
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 Do not try this at home , While mindfulness and meditation are pretty harmless, healthy even, those trance states needed for Tarot reading are not as forgiving. Reading Tarot too often / without practice might mess up with your neurochemistry.. Learn to identify when you went overboard. Take it easy. Do it for fun and self knowledge. Definitely do not do it more often than once a week for a question...
