Yes. I decided to give it a whirl regarding the election outcomes for mayor of Stamford and New York City. I decided to give my new Connolly Tarot deck a try –
Much to my chagrin, it appears that Michael Fedele will definitely win the mayoral race since I got THREE upright cards (don’t even remember which, since I was so dismayed and disgusted), but I’d love to be proven wrong…Interestingly enough, Bill diBlasio wasn’t favored much by Tarot either, with two out of three of the cards coming up reversed – the upright center card was 8 of wands, the reversed were three of swords and 8 of swords, indicating a highly contentious and bitter race to the wire and possibly beyond. If Mr. DiBlasio should somehow prevail, it could turn out that he’s lost more than he’s won.
Finally, I asked whether or not the Democrats would win control of the House in 2014, and again two out of three cards came up reversed, but this time ALL the cards were from the wands suit, with the final card being an upright ace of wands. This suggests that many races will be extremely close, and we can expect recounts, and possible lawsuits, but in the end, a new tone will prevail in the House as more seats go to the Dems, albeit without retaking full control. Conversely, I also asked the question in reverse – that is “will the Republicans lose seats in the House in 2014” and got the 4 of Swords, the Knight of Swords, both upright, along with the 9 of swords, reversed. Again, i take this to mean some hotly and bitterly contested races and possibly lawsuits, with the GOP losing more seats, amid accusations of cheating.
Let’s see what happens…
