‘not every angel is terrible’ Gwyn Davy

Two lonely people with differing backgrounds find themselves crossing paths while living in the beautiful city of Prague. They soon discover, however, that they have a shared love of history, and also come to appreciate each other’s love of the works of Rainer Maria Rilke and Matsuo Basho. Fifty-something Englishman Edward Stone is divorced and semi-retired, a man with his own mind who is an enthusiastic blogger and walker. Thirty-something Brita Kraus has never married, and whilst she enjoys her independence, also feels there is something greatly missing from her life, the result of a family tragedy which she dare not divulge to anyone – until now.

Is The Pandemic Narrative Over? Tarot Reading

This is my 7 luminaries, or days of the week spread. For me the answer revealed here is yes… but….

Governments are starting to change their attitude and stances slowly, some quicker than others, but there remains caution.

That said, there is a sense of taking the initiative and accepting freedom. Most especially, people’s minds in general are about to likely flip, their attitudes changing fundamentally, once they realise the situation and start to tell everyone else and open up.

The overall sense of relief and emerging from an emotionally draining phase in our lives will be tantamount, leaving the majority grateful and happier that they can begin to look forward.

In Note Form:

Sun – overall situation – King of Wands: Leo; assurance, proclamations

Moon – feelings, responses – Knight of Coins: Capricorn; practical concerns, caution

Mars – action to take – Queen of Wands: Sagittarius; explore, consideration

Mercury – mentality, media, neighbourhood – Wheel of Fortune: change your mind!

Jupiter – higher mind, philosophy, travel – 8 of Swords: 2nd decanate of Gemini (Venus); an achievement reached, enjoyment, communicate it

Venus – values, feel good factor – 6 of Cups: last decanate of Scorpio (Moon); sense of relief, overcoming

Saturn – outcomes, resolution – 3 of Cups: last decanate of Cancer (Jupiter); spiritual progress, understanding
