With the US government predicting the nationwide impact of the coronavirus pandemic to peak in the next seven to fourteen days, I decided to do a "best-case/worst-case scenario" reading using both the most pessimistic (Night Sun Tarot) and the most optimistic (Chrysalis Tarot) decks I own (if nothing else, the color palette of each tells … Continue reading COVID-19 Peak: A Best-Case/Worst-Case Scenario
With the global response to the spread of the COVID-19 coronovirus bordering on panic, doubts have been raised about the viability of continued globalization in world affairs. I decided to take out my reliable sociopolitical bellwether, the Post-Modern Tarot to ask the question "What will become of the New World Order in the wake of … Continue reading New World Disorder?
I cast a horary astrology chart to ask the same question I posed to the tarot yesterday: What are the chances for a global pandemic of the COVID-19 coronavirus? In keeping with John Frawley's recommendation, I used the Regiomontanus house system. A quick disclaimer: there is no reason to believe that my work is any … Continue reading Coronavirus Pandemic: A Horary Perspective
With the 2019-nCoV ("COVID-19") coronavirus spreading relentlessly worldwide, I decided to do a reading to examine what the chances are for a global pandemic of epic proportions to occur over the next few months. I had not yet had the opportunity to test my apocalyptic forecast (the "Armchair Cynic's Guide to the End of the … Continue reading Virus Alert!
I can tell by the resounding silence whenever I post one that few people here like my political readings (I'm a "small-government" New England Libertarian at heart, not a Liberal or Socialist) but that doesn't stop me and, to be honest, I do my best to "just read the cards" and not inject personal bias … Continue reading Trump’s “Mamushka”
Since the American political "stew," which has been at a steady simmer for a long time, appears to be about to come to a full, raging boil again, I figured I should take a look at the Democrats' chances for impeaching Donald Trump. I used my "Enemy at the Gates" vulnerability spread with my favorite … Continue reading And the Band Played On
UPDATE: Hurricane Dorian did in fact spare southeastern North Carolina any significant damage, and made landfall on the Outer Banks in line with my alternate prediction. There was some serious damage on Okacroke Island. Interestingly, as the hurricane approached Wilmington, NC, I was asked to do another reading about the likelihood of a tornado in … Continue reading A “Build-It-As-You-Go” Example Reading: Hurricane Dorian
To begin trending my tarot forecasting results, I performed this spread for the first seven days of September for the region of eastern New England where I live. The readings fell within the expected range for this time of year (that is, mostly hot with no unseasonable cooling anticipated and little if any rain). Here … Continue reading Weather or Not: An Extended Forecast
The title alludes to "Boris and Brexit," not "bed & breakfast," "bread & butter" or "Benedictine & brandy." My last reading on Brexit was November 26 of last year and it predicted that Theresa May wouldn't have "a chance in Hell" as her "support surges away from her" amid "stubborn divisiveness." https://parsifalswheeldivination.com/2018/11/26/puttin-on-the-rex/ For this reading … Continue reading Brexit Redux: A “B&B” Reading
When my niece was young she pestered my sister with so many "Why"questions that her mother began simply answering "cuz" (as in "because I say so"). Eventually the youngster started automatically prefacing her questions with "Why-cuz," skipping the dialogue and answering herself. But this post isn't about cute family history; I have a bigger fish … Continue reading “Why-Cuz”
