Today’s Card Captor Sakura Card has given us what in a traditional deck would be the High Priestess, however, is the Shadow. With a Number 2 expression let’s briefly unpack the memo from the Universe/Cosmos.

There may be deception around you. Almost certainly things are not at all what they appear to be so you should be alert. This may also come from unexpected sources so be advised to be careful of who you trust. Have your wits about you to pick up any signs of where the cause of this might lie.

This could either indicate that someone individually or collectively as a group have the actions or motives which are a little less than honest. It can show where you have been too trusting. The rug could be pulled out from beneath you at any time

The Shadow is a mischievous card that likes to cause trouble. Its first symbolism reflects the individual and collective dark side/self as well as the troublemaker archetype.

Something interesting is that Shadow needs Light to exist, but too much light will weaken it. This holds meaning related to the importance of balance (Yin/Yang, light/dark, and positive/negative).

After being transformed into a Sakura Card the Shadow helped with finding a friend who was lost in the anime/manga. The Shadow is under the power of Light, Sun, and Western magic.

The number two typifies the personality traits of compatibility and adaptive attitudes towards life. Considered to be the most feminine of all numbers its strength and power are often underestimated. Gentle, tactful, and diplomatic as well as forgiving and understanding.

It is the markings of those who love to keep the peace and avoid confrontations, however, they are the ultimate survivors with an uncanny resilience. As most services have gone subscription only or have issues about copyrights if you can view the anime through the following website for free I have chosen to include it.

I say this because for years I could watch free anime on Crunchyroll, Hulu, or Funimation. Today, however, as someone who has been online since the late 90s everything has transformed and free is disappearing. I think within reason sharing culture is also changing through this.

Terminology I would use would make many question me. I call it toxic capitalism somedays, but others call it stock and share holder. It becomes a bit more dog eat dog (Darwinism on crack/cocaine) or is that wag the dog.

Excuse my standard and extreme Ketu personality coming forward due to Magha nakshatra. I have a philosophy that becomes standard skeptic/cynic cause I have seen or rather lived enough is all I will say in our present system before I go on a weird rant of digression. Power and money/wealth unchecked cause corruption just my beliefs.

I’ve been trying so hard to keep politics and propaganda out, but I’ve also been extremely triggered recently by what I call psychological, sociological, and behavioral warfare through the mass hypnotic tell-a-lie-vision I sometimes encounter throughout the indoctrination accords of the Matrix. Those same tell-a-lies exist online as well even in the schools, religion, and books we mass consume.

Most then seem to believe I’m too highly sensitive, but frankly I’m just disgusted by some of the garbage put before me which I refuse to digest or consume. I’d rather starve and die thanks! That’s the beauty I guess of ego death. Sometimes you finally wake up and realize what you no longer want/need because it makes you sick, blocked, or unhealthy.

For those who wish to study the concept of the Shadow and the High Priestess in traditional decks please use the available options I have included.

The Shadow:

The High Priestess:

This archetype can have it’s upright and reversed correspondences if you catch my drift or cryptic hint.

I’m left also remembering my years of consuming Jpop, Jrock, and Kpop with this tarot card including Hurricane Venus. My high school through my twenties was consumed in anime/manga, Asian fashion/culture, and the above music genres outside of the 60s-90s music from the West.

Thank God/Goddess I grew up in a different “sharing” community than some of what exists today online because I once knew something and people online who were less “Me” culture as well as far more high vibe including sending care packages across countries to one another.

I still have eye lashes/makeup from a partner in Ireland who I blogged for as a licensed aesthetician who networked with my spa business doing features for cosmetic public relations and dresses from China I purchased despite import fees. I remember safely attending SXSW Japan Nite being downtown absorbing the music till 1-2 AM CST with no risk where I live unlike today with the crime.

I saw my favorite band from Japan there for free. Free! Unheard of today and they sold out all shows in the USA. I got into Japan Nite for $10 cover charge. I kid you not! It began around 7 PM CST. We were not hyper inflated economically. Women could walk downtown and not risk harm where I live. Not now don’t think of it!

I still have those dresses from China, and yes they still fit! I have nowhere to wear them though.

Life then was very different than the present. The entire world wide web was different. No chat bots, no rogue tweaked AI, no crypto scams, and a lot less insane bologna. A girl can reminisce enjoying her past, but sadly she can’t always live/return there. Dear God/Goddess, I miss the way it was then when I could enjoy life more.

May your Thursday be one of equipoise. 🤗
