Biting the bullet: reading re Australia's proposed new IR legislation
Voodoo Tarot of New Orleans The significator, not shown is the card you have chosen to embody your presence and the focus of the reading. Petro Mambo (Queen of Wands): The essence of fire behaving as water, such as a rainbow: The natural embodiment of passion and sensuality, who is always the center of attention. One who reflects the desires and ambitions of others, and ignites them. A radiantly vital person, cocky and charismatic, who sees what she wants and goes after it, i.e. all oppositional forces, as a whole ;-)) The card at the top left represents how you see yourself. Damballah Wedo (Ace of Swords): The seed of victory - perhaps as yet unseen. A challenge to be met and solved through the invocation of force. An opportunity to bring reason and intelligence to bear in the pursuit of justice and truth. An excessive power that must not be abused. May suggest new ideas or information that can reveal a solution to the problem at hand; also invoking 'light', aid and insight from the Tarot itself! The card at the top right represents how you see your partner. Petro Houngan (King of Wands): The essence of fire behaving as air, such as lightning: A great and daring leader who inspires others to rise to challenges alongside him. An artist who can take hold of an idea and make it a reality through bold action. One who is forceful, charismatic, and honest, leading by example, but unafraid to invest authority in others. A dashing and magnetic personality, carrying authority naturally, and striking at the world with swiftness and grace. Trade union movement mobilising... The card in the center left represents how you feel about your partner. Ti Bon Ange (Temperance): Calm and restraint. Self-control, patience and tact in handling situations. The act of applying balanced spiritual and psychic forces to physical life. The card in the center right represents what stands between you and your partner. Eleggua (Six of Discs): A time of prosperity and profit. Success and generosity in material things. Workers divided by "individual contracts", and also the fact that management has thrown many on to the "scrapheap", i.e. dole. It seems basically a "boss's market". The card in the lower left represents how your partner sees you. Les Morts (Death): A major change or transformation, possibly traumatic and unexpected. Freedom from the shackles of the past. A new beginning. Death coupled with rebirth, usually related to consciousness and lifestyle, i.e. differing perspective from the ranks of the long-term unemployed, and "working for the dole". The card in the lower right represents what your partner feels about you. Legba La Flambeau (Six of Wands): A sense of honor and satisfaction at the resolution of an important matter. Triumph after great struggle. Jubilation at the hearing of good news. The realization of hopes and desires. We can all work together, i.e. employed, unemployed and under-employed alike? The card in the center represents the present status or challenge of the relationship. Simbi (Eight of Swords): Criticism, censure, and the imposition of external restrictions (the so-called 'anti-terror' laws don't help; here we see the interface between the two, and why they appear concurrently). We all seem equally targets and scapegoats of the media. Look out for vicious smear campaigns to play out there, so stay tuned, and responsive, to this, for a change! Confusion leading to powerlessness? Being hamstrung by a past failure or humiliation, or even hamstrung to the point of not seeming able to achieve victories as in the past, e.g. 8-day?
