Syria: West planning military strike: live
SHOULD THE WEST IMPOSE MILITARY STRIKES ON SYRIA
28TH AUGUST 2013
I have been asked about the situation in SYRIA.
As most of you know this is a tricky political arena that should not be decided through metaphysical means but rather than asking for a decision, I have asked Tarot's opinion regarding impending strikes upon Syria from the West.
I have received for this question the Page of Wands reversed. Wands are known for volatile situations, action, energy, vitality, warmongering (aries element), Heat, fire, quarrels, strife.
The intensity of a wands card is to fan flames on issues that it touches igniting the element to go into action. Our Ace of Wands gives a thumbs up sign but not in a reversed suit.
The most prevalent thing about our card the Page is that it refers to messages and actions being delayed. Messages can be opinions and most opinions may be in opposition to any form of intervention so from a message of conflict point of view, this card is opposing it. Already there are legal issues and that will show that legalities and quarrels about legalities would already have shown their hand back in the 5 of wands which also issues a delay.
This card does not support incurring disaster it negates it and Tarot's view is very likely that action should stand down as a solution and defer military strikes. Many people will not agree to back this proposal for missile strikes. It does not mean it wont happen but the overall feeling from this card is that the MESSAGE is to desist to stop action. At the very least there is a delay being placed here at least for the moment that I am drawing this card.
We are told not to speed into action - we are told to get the 'spokesman or igniter' to stand down and not push this affair forward. Many quarrels may arise out of this.
Aries is the god of War and reversed his armies are being halted. The message is to HALT.
The accent being on hot foreign countries and note that there are pyramids on this card which shows lands of sands.
I give Tarot's point of view - which advises to STOP THIS PROCESS so Tarot does not agree with any intervention by way of War is beneficial.
Tarot feels that the West should listen and hold back or delay this matter further to re-think the consequences because there is a reckless attitude in these cards that can whip many people up to act without thinking and follow the leader. Wands are very bad cards when reversed and can end up in a 'car crash' result.
Violence and insecurity and being overwhelmed and injured comes up in this suit with many people pointing the finger. It is a volatile situation to say the least and no good can come from retaliation/war/strikes of any kind hence a delay is being asked for by Tarot to re consider the hunter mode and firepower.
I am not sure whether this is going to be helpful or not - but I have given Tarot's view of whether the West should retaliate. It seems plain to me that Tarot is in opposition to that. Obviously, the threat can continue with a wands card and is not necessarilly dispelled altogether, but suggests action be delayed for at least between one week and ten weeks. I have not asked for the outcome of this situation in this particular Tarot.

WHAT SHOULD PRESIDENT OBAMA DO ABOUT SYRIA?
28TH AUGUST 2013
« Thread Started at 4:52pm »
I have been asked what President Obama is going to do about Syria. I dont really want to ask this question because its not something I want to misinterpret thats for sure.
Tarot gives ADVICE - everyone knows that advice can be given but does not necessarily mean it is TAKEN. So I need to work on the principal that Tarot advises for BENEFICIAL reasons or advises a person to their BENEFIT.
That means we dont always get to hear what we WANT, we get to hear what Tarot wants us to KNOW regarding circumstances or beneficial elements.
Now here Tarot has given us the four of Swords. This cards advice is simple. It tells us we should be looking on the lines of TRUCE.
Truce? I dont know about you but what does Truce mean? Does it mean, even the score and then we are equal? Does it mean - ok - we are both equal so lets leave it there, or does it mean, ok lets agree to disagree but its not over yet?
An agreement between enemies or opponents to stop fighting or arguing for a certain time: "the guerrillas called a three-day truce".
armistice - respite - cease-fire
Well a little clarification from the dictionary posted above.
The four of swords is a 'temporary retreat' but notice that this is a mental clarity card. This is the thinking card, a card that makes us have to sit and consider all aspects perhaps. Go to ground on an issue for a while?
Three main parties or people but one deserts the process? are they super powers?
I cannot be sure but one thing is certain and that is that this card is in the reversed Swords suit. The Ace would be reversed and although seeks clarity on plans and invoked action, in its reversed state shouts from the hilltops DONT DO IT!!
So am I picking up what? a state of mind? inner thoughts? or actual situation overall? The Swords are not really action cards in my mind, they are more mentally inclined cards, they are more suited for communication. Communication is reversed. Perhaps then we need time to think because communications have suggested in the air that this is not good to go at this moment? or perhaps the feeling that we should really seek peace is here. Peace however is only on a card that is upright NOT reversed.
We must avoid infamy and slander in the next card. It can be avoided if the right actions are taken. Journeys close to water are fraught with danger in our six which means that we could be talking about the Navy here. What must we watch for? a lack of vigilance that could cause disaster. Does one stop and think too hard?
Nothing good comes out of reversed Swords. The King of Swords reversed can show a breaking of law, a lack of evidence required, judgement and law impaired - should this all go ahead. It is all here in these swords.
The 4 reversed is the Emperor reversed. There has to be RESPECT with a reversed Emperor and note that it is a non biological card. We do have weapons in the swords cards.
Are we talking about NON Biological weapons? Maybe we are demanding a respect for non biological weapons - but there is a very angry cruel element on the reversed Emperor. It may be emotions about weapons as this is not an action card please remember that. I see a lot of restless disharmony in this card. I see the need to retreat from struggles. I see a lot of mental disharmony and a need to avoid death issues.
Again perhaps its the President feeling that he has to uphold the views on needless killing or perhaps there needs to be more clarity about whether the weapons used were biological warfare or non biological warfare. In a four of swords we must consider there are children at the window and women so this card might just be outlining everything to do with this issue.
However, its what to do.
I feel a sense of being 'stuck'. We must not be hoodwinked is the feeling I have for President Obama. He must know the true issue to make decisions.
The president is likely to call for wise administration of affairs before resuming former activity.
One may need to regroup.
One must think about the economy, using precautions and regulation of expenditure. How these will tie in I am not sure whether for good or bad.
Regrouping with those of like mind has to come into play for President to do anything. Two together comes here but not a third.
Excess is not recommended to address the balance in any situation regardless of what it is and in this case War can show up on swords cards. Conflicts in other countries come up, foreign soils, soldiers and military all show on our swords cards. At the moment this card is reversed.
Diplomats and councillors all come up here too with this placement. They must agree but at the moment this route of swords has obstacles. Perhaps the decision to do anything at all needs to be readdressed perhaps something else occurs to take away some anxiety here? perhaps making the decisions decide themselves in some way?
Postponements, cancellations, opposition and delays are all on this card. Using discretion and/or discernment seems to be a wise course of action as there are warnings to be careful and to tread very carefully when making any decisions where one has to commit to something.
These cards seem to feel that President Obama needs to hold back on decisions. I do not know if that will be the case - they are swords after all - but this is Tarot's advice and as always we have to remember it is a pack of cards to some but a wise adviser to others.
I hope that President Obama makes the right choices. Tarot offers its advice and of course these are not ACTION cards, they are cards that seep into the MIND or show things that the MIND should consider. So perhaps there are conversations rather than actions that need to be mulled over very carefully.
Re addressing the balance is most certainly pointed out in these cards with Libra firmly in place but its when this goes out of balance or when we need to consider the us against them that we need to sit and consider issues extremely carefully.
We dont know how many of the THEM there are for one thing, we dont know who is on what side for another - this is just an example of Libra because it is a set of scales - we need to keep that balance and not go overboard. Of course this card is reversed, perhaps the West are being asked not to go overboard in this issue?
I just write what Tarot gives to me - it is not to put words in mouths, it is simply considerations that perhaps are to do more with the circumstances but time will tell. War can always become a very real event - and it is always on a sword card but there is always opportunity on this card to consider as this card can represent PEACE - I think most people look for that. A peaceful resolvement would be best but dont count on anything because we still have a swords card here to deal with and frankly? anything could happen.
Ultimately President Obama has to do what he thinks will re-address the balance on the level that mentally satisfies the call of the situation - whatever that is to be.
