Welcome to another Zen Biker Tarot Forecast. Want an idea of the general state of the world for the next week? Read on!
This week’s reading begins with the 8 of Staffs, inverted. Upright, this card is a “take on the world” kind of thing, a card of putting yourself forward and damn the torpedoes because you have plenty of weapons in your aresenal, plenty of backup. Inverted like this, not so much. It’s more like finding yourself in a bar fight and discovering that your crew has all gone to the bathroom. Not a guaranteed loss, but the odds are sub-optimal.
I’m going to skip over the middle card for a moment. The way it’s flanked tells me that it’s the top of a mountain, not a step in a progression.
So let’s talk about the Page of Coins, also inverted. The coins are a suit of prosperity and knowledge. The Page is the smallest of the big wheels in any court. Still a mover and shaker, but only on an entry level. Think an 800cc cruiser. So the Page holds prosperity and knowledge—with casual grace, no less—but inverted like this, he’s not holding it, he’s dropping it.
So looking on the edges, the Page tells us that there’s something we don’t know, some thing we don’t have. Knowledge is power, and the inverted 8 of Staffs tells us we don’t have any of that either. These are Minor Arcana cards, so we’re not talking about big Earth-shattering things.
However, the center card is a big, Earth-shattering thing. The Death card is exactly what you think it is. It doesn’t always mean an actual, physical death, but every massive, drastic change is the death of what went before it. That’s what is staring us in the face here. Something big that changes everything. Flanked by the other two cards, that big thing will arise from something (or -things) small and minor.
If you can manage it, this would be a great week to hunker down in your garage and do some maintenance on your bike.
If you’re not into metaphors, sit tight and work on getting your own head in order. You might need it when the world goes sideways.
