Julian Assange executed?


It has been almost a week since anyone has seen or heard from Julian Assange. His Internet connection was deliberately severed by the Ecuadorian embassy over the weekend in an apparent attempt to keep Assange from influencing the USA elections after Wikileaks released the content of Hillary Clinton’s private (paid) speeches to wealthy banking corporations. At the same time that the world lost contact with Assange, 3 cryptic messages were tweeted which many have come to believe are the result of a ‘dead man’s switch’ that was activated after he was captured/killed.  Wikileaks have confirmed that contingency plans have been set into motion. Since Assange has been silenced several more email leaks have been published, almost daily, by others in the Wikileaks organisation.

Concerned for his safety I decided to do a Grand Tableau reading on the whereabouts of Julian Assange. I wanted to know: what has happened to him?

Before laying down the spread I charged the Man card (28) to represent Assange, the Woman card (29) to represent Hillary Clinton (aka the establishment) and the House card (4) to represent the Ecuadorian embassy where Assange has been arbitrarily detained for more than 4 years under the protection of asylum.

Using the ‘chaining’ technique I came to this alarming conclusion:

assange

Charged card: 4 – House (as embassy)
House>Sun>Ring>Fish>Woman>Garden>Birds>Whip>Scythe>Coffin>Snake>
Clouds>Tree>Paths>Moon>Cross

Embassy>success>commitment>resources>Clinton>publicity>emails>repetition>
executed>end>treacherous>veiled>branch out>departure> reputation>sacrificed.

Based on the above it seems the Ecuadorian embassy’s continued success depends on their commitment and resources linked to the US government; this position is threatened by the publicity of the Clinton emails. To prevent a repetition of further email publications the embassy severed Assange’s (Internet) connection. Furthermore the embassy may have turned a blind eye to Assange’s execution, being careful to veil their treachery. (If this turns out to be accurate we can expect much smoke screening on the part of the embassy.) We see too that the release of Wikileaks publications has ‘branched out’ – as a result of Assange’s departure. His reputation and sacrifice however live on.

Charged card: 29 – Woman (as Hillary Clinton aka the establishment)

Woman>Garden>Birds>Whip>Scythe>Coffin>Snake>Clouds>Tree>Paths>
Moon>Cross>House>Sun>Ring>Fish

Clinton>public>emails>repeat>cut/punish>end/death>dangerous/venomous>smoke & mirrors>health>split/detour>reputation>sacrifice>White House>success>relationship/s>money

From the above I conclude that Clinton is concerned that her public position would be undermined by the email leaks, especially if the leaks continue. To prevent this a decision was made to amputate Assange’s efforts (by cutting his internet access) and to measure out swift punishment possibly resulting in his death. She sees Assange as dangerous, fearing future leaks could penetrate the smoke & mirrors surrounding her health issues which could result in a split in her path to the White House as health revelations could irreversibly damage her reputation resulting in her being ‘sacrificed’ instead of sworn into office. She believes that ending the leaks (and therefore Assange) will result in her successfully entering the White House, a path that has been paved by her relationships (connections) to money (corporations?)

Charged card: 28 – Man (as Julian Assange)

Man>Tower>Stork

Assange>prison>relocate

This short chain suggests that Assange was moved from the embassy, whether dead or alive.

There is much more that can be read in this spread. The first 3 cards open the reading with Key (33) Mice (23) and Child (13). A solution to the loss of innocence. This fits well with the intent behind Wikileaks – to expose the guilty in their corruption and theft. The last 4 cards (a summary) of the reading are: Bouquet (9), Ring (25), Book (26), Moon (32). Gifting us with his commitment to the truth (unveiling secrets) is how he will be known and remembered.

I sincerely hope that I am wrong, that my interpretation is off. I cannot however shake the feeling that Assange’s enemies have done away with him while the embassy turned a blind eye. Any deeper insight or clarity into this reading will be happily received in the comments.

A Healing Message – 3 of swords

Legacy of the Divine Tarot by Circo Marchetti

When one sees the three of swords come up in a reading, their first reaction is usually, “yikes,” or “yep, I knew that already.” This card is not to be taken lightly. Of course you knew that already!

Look at the image in this card. This sort of pain doesn’t just happen over night.

It is usually a good indication that one has been hurting for quite a while, and that they are probably in denial.

Even if it’s not what one wants to hear, they need to. You are actually doing them a favor by helping them prepare for what they already know is inevitable. Just keep your heart in hand, because your compassion as a reader will make all the difference in the world to them.

  • Legacy of the Divine Tarot, By Ciro Marchetti is a fascinating deck. It’s image in the three of swords is of a woman who is already very aware that she is hurting. She’s already gone through the majority of the grieving process, and for her, this card in the deck is sort of a card that says, “I understand. I see what you are going through. You will be ok. You’re not alone.” The good news is, after all the tears and all the pain, comes acceptance. This card is showing your client that it wasn’t all in their head, what they feel is very real, and a normal part of life.

If you turn the three of swords upside down for a moment, you will begin to almost “feel” the heart starting to heal.

The swords are heavy, and so is the grief. Soon gravity is going to release these swords from the heart, and from that moment on it can begin to recover.

It will not be easy, but if you accept that the pain is real, and that it’s going to take time to heal, you will be that much closer to feeling whole again. You have survived your own personal tragedy. No matter how big or small it is to someone else, it is your victory. See how strong you are? :D

I usually do a follow up with my client to make sure that they are doing fairly well. I don’t know about you, but I do what I do because I believe in the power of light, and love.
I take others feelings very seriously. I like to help point them to the light at the end of the tunnel. I know all too well the agonies of life.

Remember what I said before; the power of a smile is awesome! If you don’t believe me, walk into a room and smile at someone. I bet they smile back! Smiles are contagious and they somehow lift the heaviness from ones heart. Even if one can not see your face, they can hear your smile in your voice!

Tarot Symbolism: Knight of Swords – a surprising discovery


I made a revealing discovery on the Knight of Swords card yesterday, using the Universal Waite deck. A card that has ‘disturbed’ me for the longest time because something felt ‘off.’ In contrast to the other 3 knights he has always seemed less controlled somehow, as if he could easily fly off the handle. Thus the feeling that he sometimes rushes in where angels fear to tread.

The Knight of Swords has often come up in my readings when there is a volatile relationship under discussion. He has represented the abusive husband, the hot-tempered young man, and the person who leaps in before he thinks.

The discovery I made opened my eyes to the reason the Knight of Swords is often so angry and out of control of his emotions. On his horse’s bridle is a small, but clear, perfectly shaped red heart! Informing me that this Knight is led by his emotions rather than reason. It explains why he is so quick to anger and seemingly not in control of his reactions. He allows his emotions to lead him, instead of following reason. His emotional immaturity often causes him to overreact which is not really what I would have expected from a Knight in the realm of Reason (Swords.)

I feel that I understand this Knight a little better than I had before, I  feel less judgmental and  more compassionate towards him  since  making this discovery.


The “Secret Path” technique


This technique works with associations and can add a completely new dimension to your readings. The secret path is the path that connects two or more cards to one another in any reading, and works well when more information is required than what seems to be immediately available.

To do this you should choose a card from your deck, any card will do. Find a specific feature in your chosen card, this could be an obvious feature, or something more obscure.  Then search through the rest of your deck for cards with the same or similar features; it could be that you are picking up on a similar emotional response or intuitive response, or perhaps it is a symbol, or a facial expression; in fact it could be anything that shares a connection with the original card. This second card will offer additional and clarifying messages to your reading.

In The Amberstone’s book ‘Tarot Tips,’ they further expand on this technique by suggesting that there are several secret paths to explore in this technique. One is the Visual Secret Path in which you closely examine the details of your chosen card. What grabs your attention? It might be a colour, a piece of clothing etc  [Read more…]

Close Examination: Ace of Swords


When my tarot teacher instructed me to do a ‘close examination’ of the Ace of Swords and to write an insanely long chapter on my findings, I was stumped! No interpretations were allowed at this point, only a recording of exactly what I saw. What could I possibly find in the card that could fill up all those pages I wondered?

He’s been teaching this course for many years, so when he told (a disbelieving) me to look, I looked, and this is what I found:  [Read more…]
