Forward to the Past! A Tarot Reading – The State of the United States
A year on into the Biden Presidency, where does America stand?
The Queen of Wands at the centre of the 7 day week spread to me indicates that qualities of courage, independence and confidence are growing; despite trying circumstances, the wish for freedom and a meaningul philosophy is growing paramount.
The 6 of Wands in the Moon position hints that emotionally and domestically there is a sense of overcoming those trying situations, particularly over the last two years, of course. There will emerge a need for spiritual renewal.
A Long Lasting Dilemma
The 2 of Swords in the Mars position, is a strong indication of the dilemma that has faced US troops and also those responsible individuals who have to take action. There has and still is something of an impasse within the country between the two opposing sides of the political spectrum. This is unlikely to be resolved quickly.
The Death card in the Mercury position means that there is much to change in the local environment, the manner of short distance travel and most particularly within the media industry as a whole. This doesn’t merely suggest some tinkering at the edges, but a wholesale transformation in these crucial areas, as befits Pluto’s up and coming arrival at the point it was in the 1776 independence chart for the USA. Be prepared.
A Return to Family Values
The 4 of Cups in the Jupiter position shows that home and family will enshrine a new philosophy, indicating something of a restoration to more traditional values among certain populations. Religion too may well see a great growth; having had more time to think about core values over the last two years, many millions have examined their own hearts and family and have found solace there.
The Knight of Coins in the Venus position is a further indication that more traditionally conservative values can help to make many feel better, more wholesome. A certain pleasure can be gained from looking after the practical side of life too, even finding enjoyment in routine. Home crafts and local industries are likely to boom.
The Hierophant in the resolution or outcome position underlines the likely outcome for the USA this year; there will be a return to traditional spiritual beliefs and a need to conform to them, which has been brought about by the great uncertainty of the world around us. Sometimes, perhaps at all times, our souls need a cleansing and an assurance. Many Americans are beginning to understand this, it seems.
