I decided to pull a care while meditating on the inauguration tomorrow. I pulled the Seven Clubs – Mountain from my Sorcery Underground Fortune Telling Deck.
This card represents great obstacles, tests of courage, continued conflict. Needless to say, I won’t be going near any government buildings tomorrow. It’s dangerous when everyone wants to be king of the hill. The position is good if it can be held, and long term success is possible with determination. The capitol seems well prepared to handle any interference, but I wonder how the state capitols will fare.
Fortunes in shift. Watch your pocket book. Gains and losses end in equilibrium. We might feel the need to rob Peter to pay Paul, but when if we’re honest with ourselves and our checking accounts, we can pay Peter and Paul and be just fine. This will take some maneuvering and balancing on your part, but ultimately you realize you can adjust your definition of ‘need’ and make it work. Buy it next week.
This card often reminds me of the times when i say ‘im broke,’ and mean that my bills are paid, i’ve got food and gas for the week, and i have rainy-day money, i’m just not being frivolous. Many tarot decks depict this card as two coins in the loops of a lemniscate, or infinity symbol. In Marseille style decks, this is often shown as a looping banner with the name of the company that printed the cards or artist info. This concept of coins in infinity reminds us that money is such a fluid thing in the universe. Incredible wealth can be lost or gained overnight, and what we consider ‘incredible wealth’ can change in an instant. The stressful situation this card can vaticinate will come and go. Just keep the ball bouncing.
If it’s not what you thought it was, let it go. You’re allowed to move on. Use a sense of disappointment with the current situation as a drive to make some changes. Sometimes the grass really is greener on the other side.
