Margot the Marrakesh Mystic has an interesting post on predicting the outcome of the U.S. President election using the Tarot. Her analysis can be found here. It is well thought out and offers a prediction on the outcome.
She is predicting a McCain win at the polls but an eventual Palin Presidency due to McCain's inability to serve out his term. I also read tarot and would interpret her spreads differently. According to the spread that she has, the Sun tarot card in the Question 2 spread for the Obama / Biden ticket insures a Democrat victory since the Sun is the Big Wish. Also, The Tower (shocking dramatic change that derails ones plans) in the spread for Question 6 says no to a Palin Presidency to me. However I can see how she would see the Tower and say, if John McCain wins, he will not finish out his term.
But that is the beauty of Tarot - the same cards can be interpreted differently by different readers. I will give my tarot cards a mix and see if they confirm what Margot sees after I post my astrological prediction of the U.S. Presidential Election using Obama and McCain birth horoscope charts as the basis.
Margot's analysis is a wonderful addition to all the new age analysis of the race. Check out her great blog. And if you want to learn more about tarot, here is a book I love, Mary K. Greer's 21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card. Ms. Greer's techniques involve storytelling, sketching, symbols, metaphors, dialogues, acting, and other imaginative exercises.
