Grand Tableau yule 2020 – part 2


As visible in previous article, on the vertical axis external-internal influences, the querent is subject to external influences (the cards above the significator), and has no internal influence at all (no cards below the significator): it seems that the querent experiences forces that are out of his control.

"the Dark is rising" , "Winter is coming", "The lamps are going out … Continue reading Op zoek naar…nieuwe hoop
