The reading was well-received, and the video presentation of it has gotten more attention (views) than more recent video readings, coming in a close second to when I first worked with the Gypsy Witch Fortune Telling Playing Cards.
So I thought I’d work with Kadar once again this week.
Taking the deck in hand, and shuffling the cards, I’m asking the 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:
The cards for the week are: 5 of Spades, 9 of Clubs, 9 of Diamonds, 6 of Spades, and the Joker.
Just like last week, we have a Diamond card in the center, again suggesting the possibility of focusing on material matters. The 9 of Diamonds is a card of financial and material gain, so there might be some type of reward for any changes made or activities taken up last week with regard to finances (in reference to the 5 of Diamonds).
Another possibility is that we’re being encouraged to consider what the experiences we go through this week are teaching us. The 9 is a number for me that can mean “wisdom gained through experience,” and with Diamonds being the suit of the material and physical, this would be the area of that attainment.
The 9 is also a number that pertains to spiritual advancement, so, if the sphere of spirituality, the 9 of Diamonds can turn up when there’s a focus and attention on developing (or advancing) one’s psychic ability (if that’s not too “woo-woo” for you; it isn’t for Kadar).
Looking at the Line
Starting off the line, we have the 5 of Spades. When I turn over a Spades card as the first in a line, it can suggest a problem or difficulty being resolved (Spades being a suit associated with challenges obstacles, and hurdles).
The 5 of Spades, in particular, can point to the possibility of a difficulty that results in one becoming independent, and having to stand on his or her own two feet. The 5 of Spades would suggest handling a problem or difficulty, and it may be that the problem has to be handled on one’s own.
Another possibility with the 5 of Spades is undergoing some type or separation process; Spades is the suit of eliminating things, so this might point to cutting out people, places, and conditions that are inhibiting us (5 is a number of freedom), that are keeping us stuck, limited, or restricted in some way.
Between the 5 of Spades and the 9 of Diamonds we have the 9 of Clubs. The suit of Clubs is associated with work and business; so when I see a Club follow a Spade, it can suggest a problem or difficulty being worked out, and suggesting some effort being put in toward its resolution.
We have another 9 repeating in the line this week, suggesting an emphasis on any “unfinished business.” With the 5 of Spades coming before the two 9 cards, this could suggest that’s where the problem lies, that either there’s been no activity toward completing this unfinished business, or that there needs to be some change in how the problem is being handled.
For me, the 9 of Clubs is the spiritual and psychological journey card, and this aspect reinforces what the 9 of Diamonds had to say about wisdom gained through experiences this week. In addition, the suit of Clubs can represent progress, as well as teaching and learning.
In that regard, both the 9 of Clubs and the 9 of Diamonds are letting us know that there are many types of gain and rewards in life beyond the physical and material.
The 9 of Clubs is also a card of “distance,” reinforcing the message of separation introduced by the 5 of Spades.
The 6 of Spades can turn up to suggest that a situation is coming to an end once and for all, and with that, it’s time to move on. We had that reflected in the card that mirrors the 6 of Spades, the 9 of Clubs, which is a “journey” card.
In terms of difficulty handling a problem (5 of Spades), another card from the suit of Spades could suggest ups and downs contributing to that difficulty. The 6 is a number associated with responsibility, making the 6 of Spades potentially an issue of being irresponsible a part of the problem. If other people are a part of the problem, someone may not be accepting responsibility for his or her contribution to either the problem—or the solution.
And that could lead into another meaning I have for the 6 of Spades: a difficult conversation. There may be a need to discuss a problem or difficulty; another possibility would be that the difficult conversation may be about that separation mentioned by the 5 of Spades and the 9 of Clubs, both in combination with the 6 of Spades.
And that brings us to the final card in the line, one of the two Joker cards in the deck. For me, the Joker is a “wild” card, suggesting a surprise or an element of the unknown (which is further reinforced by the black crystal ball in front of him).
If you’re into Tarot, I liken this particular Joker to The Tower card; one of my meanings for The Tower card is “revelation,” and, in this depiction of the Joker, we see him—in part—peering out from behind a curtain, suggesting not seeing the “entire picture” of a situation, that there are elements that have yet to be revealed.
Might that come as a result of having that potentially difficult conversation (6 of Spades), the result of ending a situation once and for all, and moving on (6 of Spades)?
The Joker, in that regard, might suggest to the person opening up such a dialogue to gently brace the parties on the receiving end for the shock and impact such news could bring.
The Joker can also turn up to suggest a new phase or chapter in life that is opening up, that’s about to begin. It’s a matter of taking that all-too important first step—even if one can’t see the entire path (again, a subtle reference to the black crystal ball).
And, on that note, I’ll close the curtains on this week’s reading.
Wishing you the best in all your journeys (in whatever form they may take) this week,
