Using the Gipsy cards with the 4 languages (Old German, English, Serbo-Croatian, Italian) I asked the question if there would be any world wide catastrophe on Dec 21st as predicted by the Mayan calendar. Interestingly, I had a dream about death (which I often do). This can be interpreted literally but usually it is an indication of re-birthing an aspect of oneself.
Here are the 3 cards I drew. Such profound questions might be a challenge for these sibille style cards to answer. I’m sure the Tarot would give a totally different type of answer.
The DESIRE card can reflect the wait & see attitude that many people have adopted with regards to this particular prediction of the Mayan calendar. Not all people in the world have this information and many people do not care especially if they are of different religious belief systems. The lady in the image is anticipating some news which often is connected to a wish.
The FORTUNE card is one of the luckiest cards in the deck. It speaks of abundance and all being under control. Within this card is also almost the feeling of a “near miss”. What I mean by this is more relating to timing. Being in the right place at the right time to take advantage of the bounty this card offers.
The LOVER card would represent a man. Normally, this card is the significator for a male in the reading or it can be the significant other if a female is seeking the advice of the cards. The Lover card could represent mankind? I think that could be stretching it a bit. :)
I want to read this last card to mean that a significant male in the public eye will be making an announcement. His right side (left on image facing you) of the jacket is not decorated on the side facing the FORTUNE card suggesting taking care of business at hand.
Honestly, one would have to scrape at different levels of card meanings to answer such a deep question. As always, our intuitive messages are delivered through the cards and it is the process of receiving these messages which is important. Translating the messages to tie into the question requires the art of precision in Cartomancy but it can be done. Your psychic muscle will get a good work out. :)
