I did a reading for a client this afternoon – it was a great reading, and very affirming for her, which always is great for me as well.
Afterwards, she talked about the President and the uproar / opposition surrounding him and the Democrats as we face the midterm elections. I had another deck out on the table, and was moved to use it to ask two questions 1) what’s going on right now with the situation and with the president himself, and 2) what will the situation be six months from now. (Wish I had asked specifically about the elections, but didn’t.) I had her shuffle and draw the cards, and I read them.
1) The current situation has President Obama hemmed in so that he doesn’t have real freedom of movement in many situations, and the mindset of many is heartbreaking in terms of the President achieving his goals (8 of swords, three of swords). However, it looks like he is focused on those ideas and programs that he can grow and make prosper, and is not taking most of this personally. He’s also still very willing to take risks when the timing is right (princess of staves in the deck I was using, which is the page of wands in most decks). The same applies to the Democrats, thought perhaps at a lower octave.
2) Six months from now will be much happier and more integrated overall (9 of cups). President Obama will be relaxed and calm, and focused on making changes to programs and regulations already in place, to make them even more productive, and help them be applied even more broadly (king of staves/wands). The country’s economy will be much healthier – not perfect, but with real growth seen in the fairly near future (10 of pentacles).
So that would be about the first of March. Let’s keep track and check back.
