Do It Yourself Tarot: Election Nonpredictions Part II (PM)

Page of Cups reversed--Rider Waite

I promised to pull cards for the election again after the polls closed in Wisconsin. Here they are — again, feel free to offer interpretations in the comments. I don’t like these cards any better and especially am concerned about the reversed Five of Swords appearing both this morning and this evening, particularly since it’s now sitting next to Justice reversed. But make of it what you will. Also interesting is that the third party candidates below were the only ones who ended up with upright cards–I know I said no interpretations, but Jill Stein’s Two of Swords card combined with the Death card earlier suggests that she will have some decisions to make about her political future, while Ron Paul’s Strength card suggests what you would think it would — if he hangs in there patiently, he just may have a role to play in future presidential elections. I haven’t checked election returns yet as I write this. It’s 8:40 p.m. CST.
