Sibilla Weighs in on Jury Duty

I’ve picked Sibilla back up again, after a long period of casting it aside (which I’ll probably talk more about in a later post), because I felt I wasn’t really “clicking” with it.

I had been asked to pick it back up, in a way, by one of my cartomancy students. She asked if I would consider doing a video series on the cards over on my YouTube channel, much in the way I’ve done with Lenormand and Kipper in the past, and playing cards in the present.

Thinking about the prospect of making videos, I first had the thought that I’m probably not going to be a “traditional” reader of Sibilla, in that I don’t read reversals with the cards (I tried, I just don’t like it)—and that I would get raked over the coals for it by more experienced readers telling me, “That’s not how you read the cards.”

But, before things could even get to that point, if I were going to do a video series, I first needed to up my game—meaning I had to actually work with the cards for an extended period of time.

So, with that in mind, I’ve been working with Sibilla, pulling cards for my daily draws. And sometimes I ask the cards to give me some info on certain events I have coming up.

One such event was being summoned to serve for jury duty in my local municipality on  August 6th.

Typically what happens is that I appear at the courthouse in question, and then not get called to sit in on a case (the one time I actually did, the case was settled before court convened).

So I was telling everyone who would listen that I’d most likely go and be excused.

And then I thought, “Why not ask Sibilla, and see what she has to say about it?”

A couple days before, I picked up my La Vera Sibilla Italiana and asked, “Will I be excused from jury duty?”

How Sibilla Weighed in on the Jury Duty Question

Dealing out a Line of 5, I drew Scholar, Gift of Precious Stones, Happiness of the Heart, Happiness, and Messenger.

The first thing that struck me was having Happiness of the Heart and Happiness next to each other in the line. One depicted a scene of dancing, and the other with a man raising a glass—two forms of celebration.

Right there, Sibilla was telling me I had something to “celebrate,” which said to me that I would be excused.

Then I noticed Gift of Precious Stones, and I thought of receiving a gift—one that would lead to a “celebration” (Happiness of the Heart and Happiness).

Again, it seems Sibilla is telling me I’ll be excused from jury duty.

And then I see Scholar opening the line up, and I see this as referring to me. Scholar’s sitting in a chair, and the question involved whether or not I’d be “sitting” on a jury.

And then there’s Messenger, closing out the line, and what came to me was getting my “walking papers,” that news would come that I would be excused from jury duty—especially with Messenger moving toward the men on the Happiness card, suggesting news that would lead to a celebration. Cheers!

So Sibilla was confirming my thoughts and feelings on the matter: I would be excused from jury duty.

So… What Happened?

Here’s what happened…

I arrived at the courthouse at the appointed day and time ( August 6th at 11 am). All the potential jurors are seated, and a woman runs us through the process. She was great, I must say; she had a very friendly demeanor.

She tells us that there were 42 cases on the docket, and by the time we got there and were seated, there were only 2 remaining that we might get selected for. After checking us in, she said she would go and see what the status was on those cases. She said it was possible she could come back and announce we were all being excused.

She left the courtroom for about 10 minutes. She came back in, threw her arms up, and announced we were all free to go. As we all clapped in happiness (I’m realizing both Happiness of the Heart and Happiness each had a group of people in their images), she took a bow, and said, “Thank you very much.”

And then we were given written documentation stating that we had appeared at the courthouse. I walked out thinking about Messenger, with his paper in hand—and very happy with Sibilla’s accuracy.

Which then gave me another appreciation for Scholar + Messenger: To actually start paying more attention to the messages Sibilla wants to deliver (Scholar has his back to Messenger).

    Amazing James. I wish I could read cards like you and be as connected!

      Thanks, Kelly. I appreciate you reading the post, and the kind words.
      I usually tell people that the secret is just a matter of time, to find a card system you like and to commit to it with time and attention, just as you would a person or pet. I literally spend time with the cards every day. 😉
