Somewhere back in the mists of time, I learned how to read tarot cards. I was bored today, and after playing around with my cards trying to find some inspiration for NaNoWriMo, I decided to do spreads

Then you are taking a very stupid risk and your comment makes me think you don't know much about horses. I'm not usually this blunt, but it's a very serious issue. Why in the world wouldn't you wear a

Plus there will be courtship and weddings too

Okay guys, here's Part 2 of the Duggars' fortunes, haha!

Jedidiah:

Spoiler

Currently the major influence or motivating factor in Jedidiah's life is the concept of justice. This could mean defending the weak, helping the less fortunate and actively working for good. Or it could mean striving for a just outcome, which may be the more likely interpretation given the context. There is a possible failed courtship or relationship here and it is negatively affecting him. He hopes to recover from this period of misfortune and celebrate good fortune in the future. But he's been affected by deceit and unfair dealings, and there is the possibility this relationship may have even failed due to the influence of another young man.

Jedidiah has perhaps been a bit too generous or less careful with money in the past and it's gotten him into trouble. He's going to continue making poor decisions and may deal with some significant loss because of it. He seems to have some bad feelings relating to women (or maybe one specific woman) and selfishness/greediness when it comes to money. 

Those closest to him are helping him get through a difficult time. He's worried, but things are going to change. In the future he will be faced with disharmony in the family as tradition comes into conflict with a desire for change.

Jeremiah:

Spoiler

Jeremiah is experiencing a loss, defeat, or some kind of major confusion. There is a risk of bitterness, hatred and jealousy, and perhaps developing a grudge. He may have a secret he doesn't want exposed, and may also feel that the help Jed is getting from those closest to them is not being given to him. He's trying to resist the inevitable and digging his heels in, and indecision has been his downfall. Things are going to improve greatly for him in the future, though, as he will come into a financial windfall, through honest means, possibly a gift or inheritance.

Currently his difficulties arise from a weakness of will and inability to hold to his convictions - he doesn't have much strength. A possible broken relationship among those close to him (likely Jed?) is having a significant effect on him. He fears the same thing happening to him. If he doesn't improve his outlook and develop a more positive attitude he may miss out on a wonderful opportunity.

Jason:

Spoiler

Jason seems apathetic, maybe a bit lazy, not really concerned with potential risk and somewhat withdrawn. He's lonely and insecure and is dealing with some strong emotions. He is striving for harmony, being able to tactfully deal with conflict and maybe also working through some cognitive dissonance. He's definitely doing a lot of introspection and is coming to terms with himself and his religion. He's getting over a period of hopelessness and will be much stronger for what he's gone through.

He is careful with money and worried about debt. He has the example of a loving and strong relationship among those close to him (probably his parents). Spiritual and religious matters weigh heavily on him and he takes them very seriously. He's seeking religious knowledge and fulfillment.

There will be a separation in his future - he may break with his family somehow, or go through a divorce.

James:

Spoiler

James is dealing with some kind of humiliation and may have people spreading rumours about him (or be dealing with some similar issue). Someone has tricked him or made him think they were a friend when they weren't.

He has a goal that he thinks will bring him happiness and success and is committed to sticking to his path to achieve it - following his dream. But at the root of it all there is intolerance and ignorance stemming from religious issues which he will have to overcome. He was influenced a lot by his mother or another strong female figure but her influence is waning now.

James is going to have to face some very major demons and temptations in the future and will probably have enormous anxieties and/or struggles related to religion.

Right now he is working very steadily toward achieving his goal and will probably travel to do so. He's seen from those closest to him how unpredictable life can be, so he'll try to look to the future with optimism and will probably end up embracing a new opportunity or forging a different path. He wants to be a fair, kind man and is uninterested in traditionally 'manly' pursuits. He's more balanced. He wants to be someone people will come to for advice, and to help others with their problems. In the future he will be popular and successful but will have to watch that he doesn't overindulge. 

Justin:

Spoiler

Justin is prone to sentimentalizing the past and may think everything was so much better 'back in the good old days'. He has a tendency to be willfully ignorant and stick his head in the stand. Unfortunately he's got heart break in his future, but he will rally and get over it eventually. He is prone to taking on more than he can handle and spreading himself too thin. 

There has been some experience with monetary irresponsibility or fraud (this may be a problem with the Duggars in general as it's coming up again and again in these spreads). Again, there is a broken relationship in his future and he may miss out on something good due to dwelling on the bad. He may not really like his family or friends and wish for something different. He worries he'll get all he desires but it will end up not being worth it, or come at a cost.

Jackson:

Spoiler

Jackson is dealing with fear, anxiety, depression and/or guilt. He's been on the losing end of some minor disputes that are threatening to become major problems. There is embarrassment here again due to gossiping or bad-mouthing - he may want to inflict it on someone or avoid it himself. People are working against each other and he's losing battles. Great misfortune has befallen him and is now coming to an end, but he'll be paralyzed by a resistance to inevitable change. He dwells too much on past hurts and needs to learn to let go. 

He may deal with an unfaithful partner in the future, or currently have some kind of negative female influence in his life. Whoever this woman or girl is, she is stupid, ignorant, vain and dishonest, and if it is a future spouse, she'll be cheating on him.

He fears hatred, resentment and abuse of power - maybe he's seen it in others and fears it in himself, or just fears being the victim of it. In the end he will triumph and enjoy great good fortune and success in life. Overall, though, he has a LOT of conflict going on and there may be a major dispute or battle coming.

Johannah:

Spoiler

Johannah is not having a very good time of it, and there doesn't seem to be much hope for improvement. She's stuck/trapped. She may make sacrifices or give up things to pursue spiritual matters. Very strong possibility for a Journey to the Heart in her future. She wants enlightenment, self-acceptance and self-confidence, as well as spiritual security.

She is very influenced by her role as a woman and by religion, and might want to lead or advise others in religious matters. She has had security and stability in her life up till this point. She is really not materialistic and this has been encouraged, as have her feminine attributes. She seems to enjoy beauty and creativity and has had the freedom to explore that. But things are going to change and she'll find herself dealing with unfounded accusations and maybe even rebelling against a situation she finds unfair.

She is dealing with a lot of emotional turmoil, loneliness and insecurity, and may feel misunderstood. There is also dishonesty and distrust among some of those closest to her.

Self-knowledge and introspection will be huge for her. She might fear becoming isolated or cut off, however.

Jennifer:

Spoiler

Jennifer has a hard time being strong and true to herself. There is the potential for bitterness and jealousy to develop as a result of hardship. There is a really strong tendency to focus on the negative and almost refuse to see the good in life or to hope for better - maybe a fear of being let down or hurt (defensive pessimism).

She has experienced deception and abuse of power (another thing, along with financial issues, that keeps coming up here), and maybe mental illness, in her circle, and this puts her on guard. Indecision and poor choices have led to misfortune, but there are brighter times ahead. Unfortunately the future will also bring injustice and unfairness for her. She is angry and feels it is a righteous anger. Frustrated, wanting to correct wrongs. Bravery and willingness to face opposition. Perhaps a willingness to defy or subvert certain gender norms.

She feels she is surrounded by successful people who have achieved public acclaim after working hard to overcome misfortune. 

Jenni's greatest hope is to have a happy and secure marriage. She will marry, and her husband will be hard working and successful, reliable, practical, with a good head on his shoulders, and probably quite well off. He is quite possibly significantly older than her, or else they're both older when they marry. Probably has fair hair. There's financial success and stability in her future.

Jordyn:

Spoiler

Jordyn may have a very happy marriage in her future that will define her life, but more likely she has a very happy, loving, close relationship with someone in her life right now, possibly a deep friendship full of mutual understanding and unity. As she learns more and gains more knowledge and understanding of her world, things will change and this will present obstacles. 

She's very concerned with justice and fairness, and has a tendency to be more optimistic and to deal with setbacks better than her older sister Jenni. There is a male figure who has been unreliable and had trouble with his temper who has recently departed or his influence in her life has lessened significantly.

She has disappointment ahead of her, others working against what she wants, but she has the inner strength to carry her through hardship and to help others as well. She may find her family or community boring and make a rash decision without fully considering the consequences. She's afraid of minor issues getting blown out of proportion and becoming major problems. She'll be victorious in life, but it will be a rather hollow victory. She'll be happy she won but not really happy about how it happened.

Josie:

Spoiler

Josie is currently being affected by some kind of division, possibly the breakdown of a relationship between a couple close to her. She has issues with not being able to cooperate and work with others, and she likes seeing other people fail. She is ambitious but sort of ruthless, and maybe expects to be able to exert authority and control and always have everything her way. She likes to win for the sake of winning. Obviously this leads her into trouble. She may want to bring others down via spreading gossip or lies about them, or be worried that it will happen to her.

There is a resistance to change and refusal to accept it. The influence of a corrupt, stubborn, unimaginative male is now passing from her life. She'll be breaking a bad habit or overcoming a bad influence as she moves forward. 

Josie has social issues, issues with communication, possibly being too 'in your face', loud, or intrusive at times, and she is stubborn, leading to loneliness. She's also surrounded by people who are basically undermining each other. There's a lot of deceit and manipulation just beneath the surface in this circle. 

She wants to be spiritually on top, achieve whatever the best possible status would be for someone like her in their religion, and wants tradition, structure and order. She will be willing to make major changes to achieve her spiritual goals. There's a lot of adversity coming in the future and she'll have to rely on her own strength to face it.

@singsingsing

Do the Bates. :) Please  

though maybe just the over 18s. If you are stuck for time and energy. I get that you are all light hearted and stuff and I did read it  all and (guiltily) enjoyed it, but I still feel a bit guilty and a bit icky reading about the little ones. 

Which is just me and not wanting to project my own I twrpreations on a minor. :)

Yeah, it's super important that people know this is 100% just for fun and I'm not at all prescribing certain attributes or futures to them (though a lot of it was weirdly accurate and it's kind of freaking me out??? lol). Totally get not wanting to read the ones about the kids, though, which is why I put them behind spoilers! I will do the Bateses, maybe tomorrow - other people will have to judge how accurate my psychic powers are in that realm because I haven't followed the Bateseses closely for a while now. :pb_lol:

Love tarot, there are at least 3 or 4 decks in our house at all times, including the original Rider Waite. Great reading too!

 Not surprised they all seem to have a shady financial dealing and/or person to deal with. 

This is fascinating to me.  How did you get into reading cards? I've always wanted mine read, especially when I was younger, but my uber-Catholic family had me convinced I'd burst into flames or summon a demon or something like that. 😄

Great question! Honestly, it's been so long that I don't really remember now. I always had an interest in it, and I ended up finding a deck that I loved the feel and look of. I've also found it really useful for examining and analyzing different situations. Because even if there is no outside force behind it (metaphysical or otherwise) and it's just random and objectively meaningless, it makes you think about things in ways that might never have occurred to you otherwise. I have never burst into flames or summoned any malevolent entities to my knowledge, but I respect that some people are just more comfortable steering clear of stuff like this. It's not like a Ouiji board or a seance, though, which purport to summon spirits - it's more like a complex Magic 8 Ball.

That was so interesting to read! My bff reads tarot cards, so i’ve always been facsinated with them. 

As far as pregancy announcements, i think that CarrotCake is probably correct.

Mine too!  I have several decks and actually hide/put them away when my mother is visiting.  Also the reason I never dabbled with Ouija boards.

The tarot stuff would likely bother fundies more than anything else on this board! Many would see that as an actual spiritual attack and be incredibly disturbed by it. If my mom had found out that someone did that for one of us when we were kids (or now, for that matter) she would have been extremely upset.

Yeah, I kind of considered that, but since these are the same people who are deeply offended and disturbed by all kinds of stuff that I think is totally innocuous or positive, I decided I really didn't care (especially since they'll most likely never see this).

I understand that people have widely differing viewpoints on stuff like this, though, and that I inhabit my own bubble where none of it seems significant or alarming at all - so if there is a general consensus that people are disturbed about the readings for the kids in particular, I can definitely ask the mods to delete those.

I have mixed feelings about doing it for the kids, but overall I personally don't think it's actually harming anyone and hopefully they won't even find out about it.

I think people who haven't been fundie though don't understand how upset many of them get at anything "occult." It's more than your average fundie offense taking; they actually believe it's real and a genuine spiritual threat. I also grew up charismatic, though, with people who took a particular interest in demons and "spiritual warfare," so it's very possible that other fundies wouldn't even be as upset by occult stuff as my family would be.

      My grandmother came from a town in Missouri of (now) population ~14,500 and 8 Baptist churches.  Not counting all the other denominations, that's just the Baptists.  
      MY grandfather came from Drimoleauge, Ireland which has a current population of ~450 people (not a typo) and 1 church and 5 pubs.  
      If I get a time machine take a wild guess which ancestors I'm going back to visit?  I'm not social, don't enjoy bars, and prefer to imbibe at home but sitting in a pub has to be better than being Godbothered to death by people pretending they don't drink.  
      Fun unrelated fact - Martin Luther spent so much time on the toilet he had a desk built so he could work there, and would take meetings while actively pooping.   He also wrote letters to people with vivid descriptions of his poops.   That should make everyone feel a little better about their work place and emails.
