Welcome one and all to the very first Zen Biker Tarot Reading of 2021! This one is short, to the point, and optimistic, which is not at all a bad omen for a new year.
Might not look it at first, though. Our first card lives in the details, dances in empty pockets and takes the hindmost. Yes, it’s The Devil, in Tarot not so much deliberate malevolence as the embodiment of everything over which you have no immediate control. Which often seems like deliberate malevolence, no matter what form it takes.
Our second card is also a familiar face, but the inverted Page of Swords is singing a different tune this week. In this instance, notice that he’s looking the Devil in the face. Rightside-up, the Page would be drawing that sword and swinging away like a seven year old Little Leaguer with two strikes down and a snootful of Pixie Stix. Inverted? He’s sheathing that thing and mellowing out. I get the sense that in this instance, that’s a good example to follow. Sometimes, acknowledging that you’re a little smaller than the things you can’t control is the sensible alternative, regardless of anything your ego may have to say on the matter.
Our final card for this week tells us why. The Ten of Coins is one of the Brass Ring cards of the Tarot deck. You grab that, you done good. This is a card of peace, prosperity, and put-near perfection on all levels. The life equivalent of a Honda engine: fill it with gas, and it just works. This is what lies on the other side of restraint this week.
To review: Life’s gonna suck, and there is nothing you can do about it. As long as you do the right kind of nothing, it’ll all work out in the end.
That’s all for this week, and may it serve you well. See you again next week.
