This is a tarotreading I did in springtime 2000. It concerns the future of the market. Eight of cups- Indolence After debauchery follows indolence. The energy has fizzled out, the handles of the copper cups are broken. Too much pleasure and excessive indulgence. The water of the emotions stands, not renewed by any spring. It begins to stagnate and the mists of foulness rises to the skies and cloud the light of clarity. The two remaining lotus flowers continue to spill out their energies. But in this situation it is wasted effort. The foul, stagnant water swallows up their small bit of freshness and vitality immediately. It sinks into the sluggish, viscous march. It did happen didn't it. Here is a new reading I just did. It concerns the coming two years in the market. Seven of swords-Futility The large sword of clarity is attacked and injured by six smaller swords and loses energy and endurance. The smaller swords, each of which bears a planetary symbol on it's hilt, represent the pessimistic toughts which prevent clear success. Consious and unconsious (Sun and Moon at either end of the central sword) have traded positions. Gloomy subconsious expectations muddy insight. A heavy anxiety prevails although in reality all is going perfectly well. Perhaps when I trade myself filthy rich with conventional trading I will devise a system of trading based on tarot readings. By the way cups stand for emotions(water) and swords for the intellect(air).
