Mirror, Mirror in my cards….

Last night we heard that the UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson went into hospital for ‘further testing.’

What does this signify?

Social media is a shocker. The sheer venom and schadenfreude of those sitting in judgement, ill-wishing another. There has been so much sad news already. We don’t need more, although more is surely coming.

For those declaring the PM caught it from flouting his own advice, speculation is rife, and it is possible Boris Johnson caught the coronavirus following a meeting with Michel Barnier, who subsequently tested positive and went into self isolation, and I would also wish M Barnier well.

I drew the following playing cards last night about 9.30, asking for the oracular ‘take’ on this unsettling development, and was struck at the way the cards mirrored the facts as reported, though also with an undertow not reported, but which could be inferred by any one of us in contemplating this situation.

Let me briefly explain again for any new visitors on this site: I ask myself a question, the cards are shuffled blind and drawn entirely at random, and I lay them out left to right in a schematic representation which can be read in a number of ways; eg, Past-present-possible future, or I may interpret my line of cards as representing: problem- crisis-resolution.

The first card supplies my baseline, and if it is obviously relevant to the matter in hand, this lets me know if I am on the right track.

I generally use 5 cards but here you will notice I have pulled extra cards, for no particular reason, except as prompted by my intuition, in seeking further clarity.

Cartomancy spread for Boris Johnson 05/04.2020

The Top Row, reading left to right…the outcome is indicated by a combination of the central card and also the final card in the row:

The Ten of Diamonds = Number 10 Downing Street

The Three of Swords = pain of separation, Carrie Symonds and Boris Johnson, perhaps also a reference to the PM’s recent divorce.

The Queen of Spades= Carrie Symonds. Experiencing considerable stress, as one might imagine, and we know she has also been ill. This also refers to other family, BJ’s mother, and to his former wife, Marina who has had some very serious health difficulties. BJ is mindful of all three.

The Ace of Spades Reversed: Crux of the matter. Spades is the suit of Air. An Ace is a breath. It suggests Boris became breathless, and it was this that necessitated the removal to hospital. Further testing may therefore suggests testing for a subsequent bacterial infection…possible secondary pneumonia and a possible need for antibiotics. I heard mention today of oxygen therapy for Boris, and if this is correct, it would seem to support that interpretation. The Ace of Spades is notorious as the card of endings. But reversed, it additionally suggests this is ‘not the end.’

The King of Spades is Boris himself; a Gemini subject, a king of the suit of Air. Mercurial, so intellectually agile, his speech cannot always keep up, and his capabilities may be mistrusted, misjudged or underestimated. He is buoyant, some might say, and indeed they do, unduly so, and his resilience in based in a native physical energy and a temperamentally innate optimism.

Two of Clubs: well it is serious, but it is not the Ten of Spades. That is an utter stinker of a card…it might only mean a migraine (only!) but it can be worse than the Death card – which when it denotes real, actual human mortality (and often it does not) refers to a natural, timely passing, in my experience

I am a sceptical psychic practitioner, and that is not mutually exclusive except in binary thinking. I am extremely conscious that young, strong people are succumbing to this horrible viral pneumonia, and if we hear the PM is on a ventilator, well, it’s bleak news indeed,but others have come back from that. This reading is mirroring what we already know, which serves to illustrate the synchronicity that happens in a reading….the common experience of an apparently random but oddly meaningful coincidence.

The Bottom Row

The Joker: This card is representing both the ‘wild card’ of the coronavirus, and also the Prime Minister himself. The Joker or the Fool as it is known in Tarot is not to be mistaken for a fool in the sense of stupidity. The Joker is the most powerful and most numinous card in the playing deck, just as the Fool is in a tarot deck. There is no predicting the Joker. It is the ultimate Fate card; the hand of destiny.

The Ace of Hearts Reversed: Loss of wellness, sadness and worry, concern for a child (or in this case existing children and a new baby on the way)

The Ace of Diamonds: This is a positive card when read in it’s own right, indicative of medical diagnostic expertise. Read in conjunction with the Seven of Diamonds, I read it as ‘fever/contagion’.

The King of Diamonds means a doctor, and probably refers to one or more medical advisers currently in attendance.

The King of Clubs refers to another doctor, and also a senior government figure being kept closely briefed (Clubs = the business of government)

The Three of Clubs There is a key team at work here; an inner team of 3 government figures keeping close counsel.

Let’s turn to my Tarot cards….better pictures. So read us a story, morning glory.

From The Legacy of The Divine Tarot, artist Ciro Marchetti

Card 1: The Ace of Pentacles Reversed = head of government absent, someone left home, the physical body is topsy-turvy, one cannot eat, business is not as usual. Money is lost. Sadly true for too many.

Card 2: The Fool. Aha, Here we have another face of The (totally serious) Joker. Boris Johnson, and look, he has his little dog Dylan right there with him. He has been a bit ‘out of it’ with this fever.

Card 3: The Six of Swords; a solemn undertaking, a journey into the unknown. Styxian, but I strongly relate to this card, and based on past experience of this card, more often than not it signifies the road to recovery. Time frame 6 days-6 weeks.

This morning I read an ominous prognostication via an esteemed colleague on Twitter, Kyra Oser; a psychic tarot reader in the US :

Fasting Fridays for Future@KyraOser
· Today’s #Tarot: Tower, Devil R, 4 of Pentacles R This week brings the fall of more than one leader. The demise will come in threes. Mass unemployment of millions more will expose the greed of extreme wealth. The systems of past times will be overturned in an economic revolution.

Kyra does not name names, and she is quite right. Those cards are utter stinkers. I tend to be a sunny side up reader. I could be entirely wrong about that too, but if I have bad news to share with one of my clients, that is different. They have sought out the reading, I am trying to identify the answer to their question, and I am also working to identify their options in any given situation.

As with medicine, the aim in card reading is to do no harm. This looks as though it could be very tough.

All the very best to the PM, and to you too at this deeply unsettling time.

Update: 20: 30 and the PM has gone into special care.

The Norse runes in question: Elhaz/Elk, (protection) Uruz/Auroch (strength), Eihwaz/Yew (regeneration)

Until next time 🙂
