This week in Tarot 4 Tyson… an overlooked option could mean trouble.

  1. The Past – Four of Cups (reversed)
  2. The Present – Eight of Pentacles (reversed)
  3. The Future – Wheel of Fortune (reversed)
  4. The Outcome- Five of Swords

The Reading: This week’s spread is indeed an interesting one as we see a young man (1), possibly Mr. Tyson himself, seated under a tree – figuratively speaking – contemplating three cups which have been placed before him, but does he or does he not see the fourth cup being offered to him by the mysterious hand?  Is this the hand of the cosmos? Is it a mysterious blessing or unforeseen opportunity of support, or a fourth option which may or may not be noticed by him?  Perhaps being a skeptic, Mr. Tyson may not see this hand, and as a result, may miss this looming opportunity.  It’s possible that this fourth option was ignored judging from the next card as we see him in the Eight of Pentacles working hard and relying more on skilled labor than on luck.  As we move to the third card we see the Wheel of Fortune, a sign of Universal change and balance.  In its reversed position it indicates increase and abundance which would normally be favorable, however, the fourth card, the Five of Swords, reveals an aftermath of loss and degradation as we see a victor standing in the foreground and two dejected figures walking away.  Oddly, the figure in the foreground holds three swords.  Can we say that his skill far surpassed those of his opponents?  It would seem that any increase that was awarded by the Wheel of Fortune may have been lost due to the influence of the Five of Swords.  My advice, take the fourth option from the mysterious hand (1) and perhaps the week will take a different course.  Blessed be Mr. Tyson & 93!
