NOTE: Last Thursday’s (11/9) reading can be accessed on Youtube. I didn’t do a write-up because I was dealing with soreness in my right arm where I had my latest COVID booster the day before. It was all I could do to get through the reading that morning and I just wasn’t up to doing anything else. By Friday, I was back to normal, but all day Thursday, I felt really icky.

Carcer, on the other hand, as the geomancy rune representing the so below side of the reading, is suggesting that you may need to access higher awareness represented by Algiz so that you don’t become stuck in one particular perception or another and sabotage a decision you need to make, or react in a manner that is subjective at best.

Looking at the cards, given both Major Arcana cards, I decided to look at the two Major cards as guidance for the King of Swords. Beginning with the King, We see a King sitting on his throne with his sword slightly askew in his right hand.
