I just now heard that Amy Winehouse is dead.... WTF.... I am surprised at how upset I am, but I can't seem to stop crying. My heart is so broken. Last night I drew a card from my Faulkner deck before I went to bed to see what today may hold. Needless to say I was not pleased when I got The Tower. And here it is. A beautiful, talented-beyond-words, 27 year old woman who's life was snuffed out like a candle flame. I fucking hate drugs. I hate what they do to the people who take them and to those of us who love them.
* Please note, many tarot readers feel that predicting death is highly unethical. I tend to agree, as we are human. Though it works through us and is in us, we not God/Goddess/The Divine. Each and every human we may read for has free will as does each and every human they come in contact with, and that is a huge part of why card eadings are not set in stone or an exact science. Can one see how The Tower applies in this situation? Sure. This is an extremely shocking event that has come out of the blue today and has been extremely upsetting. But to predict actual mortal end of life, it would take a hell of a lot more cards than just this one. And again, as the scripture says, we know not the hour. So my advice, do not ever predict physical death. If you truly feel a client is in danger, THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK and choose your words VERY carefully!! Like saying that you see they need to be sure to lock their doors and don't take foolish chances while driving or walking alone, or swimming, or they need to go to a medical doctor for a check up, ect. In my opinion,do yourself a favor and don't do it.
