I’ve been in a dry spell lately, and sad to say that I might need to put off the next Cosmic Banter article until I could get my thoughts arranged to write it down in a way that won’t end up with me just rambling at the end. That is why I decided to do something different: Solicit a question from one of my friends (or you!) for me to answer on this here blog.
Here we go! IKIMASHOU!!!
The first question goes to one of my closest friends: Does Queen Ellis/Elise have any enemies?
That was a doozy, I’ve honestly never thought of that. So I decided to go ask the spirits directly, which involved a three-card spread. And we got:
Eight of Clovers | Four of Hearts | Six of Diamonds
The Eight of Clovers denote a network of power, or energy going really, really fast over many points. This suggests something related to communications, possibly mass-media, or it might be a group of very powerful people.
The Four of Diamonds show a foundation for emotions to proceed from, but also emotions becoming more stable. Taken in a negative light, this might mean something that makes people emotionally inert or complacent with their own existence. The only thing I could think of that has that kind of effect is the Mainstream Entertainment industry trying to make us Keep Up with people who wouldn’t otherwise care about our existence, or a religious or cultural hierarchy that discourages people from exploring things they don’t know.
And finally, the Six of Diamonds, being in a state of balance or dynamic stability with one’s finances or other resources. One doesn’t have an exceedingly large amount of money, but large enough to be able to be relatively comfortable, and, do something with the money at the same time. This sounds like something related to the Banking system.
Suspicious. What do all of these have in common?
They all keep the masses from making their own choices about their own beliefs and mold the minds of the people to favor the status quo.
Sounds like something out of tinfoil-hat-land, but such things aren’t really that far-fetched, based on some stuff I’ve rambled on about previously.
And it makes total sense, since the LS’s original purpose was to disrupt consensual reality and make the world a more magickal place. Fulfilling that purpose is bound to make you run up against pretty big players with a vested interest in making sure your mind stays similar to that of livestock.
I’ll just leave this here:
