Well, it is finally election day. We have watched the craziest election cycle I have ever seen with politicians disappearing the entire time and people publishing tell-all books that tell nothing more than what we already knew, in order to disrupt the outcome.
Well we shall see tonight is the night!
In the meantime, here's how the cards play down today...
LPC: Ace of Cups, Ten of Pentacles, Queen of Wands
Holy crap. The Ace speaks to emotional joy beginning, followed by the fullness of the success of the ten of pentacles, and the Queen of Wands making it all real; I have a difficult time, not calling a Liberal Majority with these cards.
Should it not be a LPC majority, it will be a much stronger minority than they had going into the election.
CPC: Ace of Pentacles, Princess of Wands, Ten of Cups
So, these cards give me pause on the heels of the cards I just drew for the LPC. The ten of cups suggest great joy and happiness coming out of the election. Am I seeing relieve that they didn't get their hats handed to them? At the very least, it seems that the Base is going to come out solid for the CPC and they will likely continue to be the Official Opposition, post-election.
NDP: Ace of Pentacles, Knight of Wands, Two of Swords
The split occurring in the Two of Swords is interesting, as if there will be a physical divide between good solid successes in the NDP Camp, but the results will leave the NDP with a decision to make.
GPC: Nine of Pentacles, Nine of Cups, Eight of Pentacles
I keep getting weird cards for the GPC. the 9 of pentacles is the energy of desire, envy, jealousy towards the other, coupled with the wish card, the nine of cups, there is a good solid base for joy and happiness and sucess, the eight suggest that there will be good solid forward movement for the Greens to grown on.
BQ: Ten of cups, Nine of Pentacles, Ace of Pentacles
The desire to win and the envy of the physical competition seems not to deter the Bloc, looks like they'll come out of the election with a good standing position.
And the Leaders:
Justin Trudeau: Two of Swords, 6 of Wands, The Star
Looks like our incumbent is going to pull a rabbit out of the hat. The idea that choosing to run the election in spite of the continued calls for one from the opposition, pays off for the opposition, giving him his victory, but not the outcome he went into the election hoping for.
Jagmeet Singh: The Hermit, The Devil, Six of Wands
His refusal to give up control of the idea that he might one day be PM is an overriding energy to which Mr. Singh has sold his soul. In spite of this he will win his seat.
Annamie Paul: The Devil, 7 of Swords, Princess of Cups
Ms. Paul comes to the election with control issues, and in spite of her very powerful appearance after the debates, the negative commentary surrounding her camp may ultimately take a toll on her campaign and although she may not be successful, don't count her out, her campaign is only getting started, she has a heartfelt commitment to the party.
Erin O’Toole: Lovers, Two of Wands, Death
Mr. O'Toole came to the table with the idea of uniting Canadians behind defeating his opponent, the incumbent. In spite of the very positive campaign he brought, the voters believe the air that comes from his victory will be quite the opposite of that, and as a result of that, his own riding may have listened to him and chosen change. If he gets his wish, it will be because Canadians decided to make a change, and I feel more like it is just his supporters who decide they want change.
Maxime Bernier: Lovers, Magician, Courage
Looking for kindred spirits, Mr. Bernier brings all of the possible tools required to bring his version of magic to power. It's as if he brings to the table everything that society needs, except the courage required to speak a truth to light. These are powerfully rough cards.
Yves-François Blanchet: Knight of Swords, Princess of Swords, The Devil
Speaking his truth out loud has sparked a movement, will it have sparked loudly enough yet to create change? The Devil cards suggest it has. The separatists have awoken and may very well make their presence known this go around. They did say Quebec is Mr. Trudeau's to lose.
With these cards, I predict a Liberal minority government. I expect that the entire landscape is going to look very much the same as it did going into the election.
I asked how different the House will look after the election:
3 of Wands, Princess of Wands, Five of Swords.
As progressive and harmonic as the Nation would like to be, and although seeds have been planted for people to work together, and grow and heal Canada, there are just enough detractors for the same chicanery that went before to continue on afterwards.
Hold onto your hats, and refuse to park your brain at the door.
