The soothsayer said…
The left 7 cards represent what has happened until now and the right 7 cards represent what will happen between now and the end of 2020.
Definitely struggled with this one since it is ‘medical’ but here we go: a man (Lover) with authority or in an official capacity (Officer) played by the rules/set the rules (Officer, can also be a medical professional) that declared COVID a big problem/problem on a large scale/state of emergency (Misfortune). The advice was given (Ecclesiastic) to stay home (House) and to stay around only your family members (House). This did not prevent people from dying (Death) …no idea what the Sweetheart would show here?
In the next few months there will still be a loss (or illness disappears?), people will be cared for (Widow), there will be a recovery (Journey), COVID will still be chronic (sadness) but there will be a positive upturn (gift) maybe due to a treatment (Marriage) that gives small improvements (some money)
My reading of the combos:
Lover-Officer: charming Rutte and stern Grapperhaus, played at good cop- bad cop in the media coverage on COVID restrictions
Officer-Disaster: at first, a strict lockdown caused economic disaster
Misfortune-Ecclesiastic: as a consequence of COVID, the Prime Minister became the leading consigiliere
Ecclesiastic-House: The consigliere dominated the House of Representatives.
Death-Sweetheart: Death came for many beloved ones
Sweetheart-Loss: Intimacy is lessened (because of strict rules on social distancing)
Loss-Widow: losses are to be mourned
Widow-Travel: Widows will follow the hearse
Travel-Sadness: The passing away (of people) causes sadness
Sadness-Gift: The sadness will be soothed by a gift (vaccin?)
Gift-Marriage: The vaccin will work on COVID
Marriage-Some Money: A new hope arises, tentatively
