And I really wanted to work with my copy of Jennifer Kast’s Caravan of SEE’ers Fortune Telling Playing Cards in this space again, so that’s the deck I chose to assist me.
So, I’m taking the deck in hand, shuffling the cards, and asking the (standard) general question, “What do we need to know about the possibilities for the week ahead?”
This week’s video reveals the cards for our reading:
If you prefer to read the post, here it is:
After shuffling the deck, I pulled three cards for this week’s reading.
For me, the suit of Clubs is associated with work and business, so there may be situations we’re “working” through on the job or employment front this week.
The 5 is a number associated with change, so the 5 of Clubs can simply suggest changes with work or business. One possibility, when this card turns up, is a literal changing of jobs, going from one job to the next (the 5 is also associated with travel).
If the work or business doesn’t relate, then another possibility could have to do with physical activity, as the 5 is a number I associate with the body, and therefore the physical and material. In this case, the work aspect of Clubs could lean toward working out and physical exercise.
Then the 5 of Clubs might be a change in one’s exercise routine.
Clubs can also be about social activity and interaction, so there could be a change on the social scene. The 5 is also associated with freedom, so there’s the possibility of seeking freedom for social activities—or needing to be freed up from too many social activities.
This card is known as the “wish” card, and when it turns up, it can suggest a wish being fulfilled, granted, and coming true.
The 9 is a number of gain and attainment, and with Hearts, the gain can be one of an emotional nature.
Coming after the 5 of Clubs (which is a card of good luck as well), it can suggest a change (5) that’s being worked on (Clubs) can lead to a sense of emotional satisfaction and fulfillment (9 of Hearts).
If someone is in the process of changing jobs, for instance, this combination could suggest landing a dream job, the type of work the person has wanted to do.
And, as another example, if someone is undergoing a change with exercise and physical activity, after some time working out, the person begins to noticeably feel better.
Whatever the particular situation, having the 9 of Hearts turn up is an encouraging sign, suggesting events are moving in a direction that’s wanted.
The Vardo card is actually the Joker of the deck; the Joker can suggest a new phase or chapter in life, which makes sense given that the 5 of Clubs is about change. A change in any situation can carry with it some type of newness, setting the stage for something to begin.
The Joker is also a “wild” card, and I tend to read this aspect of the card as suggesting something unexpectedly taking place within the situation. So, the motivation for changing something in the business of life might come as the result of an unexpected event.
The Vardo on the card is on wheels, symbolizing movement and progression. The 5 is a number associated with travel, so this can imply both literal and figurative movement.
There’s a ladder on the card as well, and that could signify “moving up the ladder,” which is advancing in one’s career; this would reinforce the possibility of a change in jobs or work that the 5 of Clubs offered.
With the Vardo card facing the 9 of Hearts, the message here is that there’s movement and progression (Vardo) toward a wish being fulfilled, and happiness being attained (9 of Hearts).
No matter the specific scenario and how it plays out, this week has the potential to be one of action and activity (Clubs), developing emotionally through working on our relationships (Clubs + Hearts), and possibly seeing our efforts (Clubs) result in happy outcomes (Hearts).
And that will wrap up this week’s Outlook.
Have a wonderful week!
