Click here for the previous day.
Honestly, I haven’t felt much like celebrating lately. Gotta admit.
Still, today’s theme is “Celebration,” so I sucked it up, shuffled my cards, and asked, “What will give me cause to celebrate?”
The result was pretty interesting.
It’s true that a lot of my concerns right now revolve around judgment. Will I lose my health insurance? How will the electoral college choose to allocate their votes? Are the threats being made against protesters going to be carried out? How much more harassment am I going to end up receiving (not “Am I,” but “How much more”) because of the President-elect’s obstinate refusal to reject the actions of his supporters? Are my friends going to be okay, or are they going to be deported, have their marriages nullified, or be herded into gulags? Am I going to be okay?
So, yeah. Judgment. It represents… Well, judgment. That isn’t all, though– if you examine the imagery, it has layers of rebirth and renewal. Absolution. A resolution of things, even, that allows you to move forward with a new purpose in life. It’s the kind of card that can either be a very encouraging, or very discouraging sign.
I’ve been working on moving forward with business-related things. I also, after a not-insignificant amount of rage and introspection, feel like I’ve developed a renewed sense of purpose. I’m collaborating on a new project with some people. I’ve got a lot going on– some of it’s writing or business-related, much of it has more to do with finding new ways to help or protect the vulnerable around me despite my own limitations. There are a lot of things Judgment could apply to here.
I can’t say I’m entirely sure about what this card’s referring to in this context, but I’d be lying if I said it didn’t make me feel hopeful.
