Vendredi: Four of Clubs

Halloween is almost upon us and it is an evening when people have, from earliest times, gathered around a warm fire and told fortunes. The dark, windy night outside was driven away by the comforting flames and people could look to the future through the ministrations of a wise woman or root doctor who could tell what the cards, the palm of your hand, or the tea leaves that sat in your cup foretold.

In European and European influenced cultures, at least, this probably goes back to ancient Celtic belief. Samhain was the end of the year and there would be a “period between the worlds” that started on that night and continued until the New Year sprang to life at Yule on the Winter Solstice.

Sunday would be the perfect night to pull out your cards and read a fortune or two. So let’s see what the Four of Clubs has to say about all this, shall we?

This card usually indicates a need for the querent to keep a close eye on their finances and/or their job. It may be that they are slacking off at work or being a little to free with their cash. Some subtle questions on your part, and a close look at other cards in the spread, will bring out the crux of the matter.

If the general reading does not point to financial issues, the Four of Clubs may be indicating that another issue in your querent’s life needs closer attention. Specifically, there is something going on about which they are misinformed or even completely ignorant. That need to take stock and seek clarification if possible.

And so it goes. Bon chance ~

Unfortunately, it seems like there is always something going on about which I am "misinformed or even completely ignorant", Pauline.

And I always need to watch my finances. Hmmm.
