Happy Easter Dr. Tyson!
Now, I know what you are thinking, you are thinking that neither of us are Christian, which is true, but I am not above or beyond wishing people Happy Easter. Though I imagine, based upon your past, you probably tell everyone, including smiling happy children, that the beloved Easter Bunny has a special place at the Planetarium slightly underneath that of Pluto.
For my benefit and comfort, I decided to do today’s reading at the table while drinking my morning cup of coffee and just after playing a word on my cellphone. It seems that this week’s triumphs and victories are a bit askew with arrogance and pride as we have the Ace of Pentacles and the Ace of Swords shown in reverse. ( I tell you Dr. when I started laying out the cards I was shooting for a four of a kind, which, much to my disappointment, did not happen.) The Aces (1,2) did strike me though, because how often in a reading does that happen? Oddly they are both reversed which indicates a corruption, twist, or imperfect quality in their meaning hence the arrogance and pride. The text tells that the reversed pentacle (1) inspires greed and the reversed sword (2) hints at an abuse of intellect, meaning you may be using your wealth and your intelligence for selfish means. This idea of status and misused advantages is somewhat portrayed in the Three of Pentacles which implies skilled labor and aristocracy. A skill which may benefit the craftsman and bring him great success, but unfortunately it won’t bring him a full sense of happiness in his life or marriage as revealed by the reversed Sun card (4). Perhaps this week you should instead believe in the Easter Bunny Dr. Tyson. Bright Blessings!
