Vendredi: Four of Spades

The Four of Spades, in my experience, is a card which, perhaps thankfully, rarely appears in the average spread.  It shows up only when there are indications of financial urgency or hardship.  Depending on your querent it can have a number of messages but all of them should be paid close attention to.

On one hand this card may indicate a person who puts so much of themselves into whatever gainful employment they are involved in that they make no time for anyone else.  This person is over worked, usually by choice, but it is in essence killing them.  Ill health of some kind – mental, physical, spiritual – is quite literally in the cards for this querent.  The kicker is that even though the person is dancing as fast as they can, their reward is minimal or non-existent.  Money goes out as fast as it comes in and your querent needs to sit down and honestly reevaluate every aspect of their life before their house falls into its faulty foundation.

On the other hand, this card may be calling out to the querent that financial ruin is only a stone’s throw away.  In this case the potential misery rests firmly on the querent’s shoulders.  Unlike the previous example, they are not working hard enough if at all, and their bank account shows it.  Time for a wake up call.  The querent needs to put up or shut up – they should either pursue their chosen path or grab the first paying job offered.  Or both.  Otherwise the worst could very well occur.

And that is more than enough for today.  Vendredi heureux ~
