For the first week of 2013, I'm sticking with a Christmas gift that I have used for a couple of recent posts: _Madame Endora's Fortune Cards_ (Monolith Graphics; featuring art by _Christine Filipek_).
For the Week of January 6, 2013, my card is:
THE HAND OF FATE: "Forces beyond your control intervene." The Little White Book that comes with this deck goes on to say: "Destiny offers new opportunity. Justice prevails."
Okay... but I drew the card reversed. Uh oh. This deck does not provide meanings for reversed cards in its LWB. But that doesn't mean I can't think about how I might interpret The Hand of Fate, reversed.
Perhaps forces beyond my control will *try* to intervene but not succeed (an opportunity missed or delayed). Perhaps justice will not be served or will be delayed. Or perhaps I am being told not to take a fatalistic view: Maybe the "forces" in question will not be entirely beyond my control, and I will be able to influence matters.
