A day off in the 'Trial Of the Century'

The court was dark yesterday for a reason I cannot remember at the moment.  I thought I'd see what the energies are surrounding Jodi Arias this day.  Please know that I wish to do this respectfully.  There are many people hurting over this most tragic crime.  My prayers go out to the family of Travis and to all who loved him so dearly. I also pray for the Arias family as they have an equally difficult path.

 It begins with swords. Lots of them. That sash wont protect you from the sharp blades.  In this past present position we see the swords approaching, in the present, they've arrived and have hit their mark.  Very fitting dontcha think?  So many swords.  So many stab wounds. It is almost the number of jurors left.  There is 16 jurors left and one judge makes 17.  Seventeen impartial members of the court, fighting for the truth.  It is a slow and difficult road. 

The goal or challenge is the King of Swords.  More Swords! The King of Swords is a judge of sorts.  Intelligent, logical, decisive and fair.  Legal matters and rules and limitations.  I see this as a challenge for JA.  How will this legal situation work for her, perhaps work against her?  How will this court accomplish a fair judgement for everyone?   Internal influences is the Queen of Pentacles (bottom card, under King of Swords) A very nurturing woman although this cards shows a tree burdened with much snow.  Bowed and pointing herself back to the earth.  Encircling herself.  Protective of the pentacle coming from her roots, perhaps even the trunk of a tree/offshoot that was cut down and now used as a pedestal.  JA desired to be a wife and a mother and no doubt she mourns that future she may never have now.  External influences is the 5 of Swords.  Ah, one more sword for this reading. The energies surrounding her are scattered and divisive.  Innocent? Battered woman? Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?  There is much disagreement as to why this came about.  There is much difficulty in getting straight answers and making sense of it all.

release page of cups   and accept king of pents

What must be released is the Page of Cups.   A sweet kind and playful page, romantic and naive.  After all the photos and phone calls we've heard,  it's impossible to think of JA in this innocent loving way.  What must be accepted, The King of Pentacles.  I have not determined what this means in this position.  More on that as things are revealed.

In the two future positions are Strength and Death.  Much strength is needed now for everyone.  The trial is still ongoing and is there is still much more to go.  It is increasingly more difficult for the families as time goes on.  They are weary, all of them.  Both sides of the families are showing signs of stress. The legal eagles look cool, calm and collected.  Sharp and fresh every day.  While on the outside they appear put together, I can only imagine the toll it is taking on them personally and for their families.

DEATH!  The Death card is not a scary card for me.  Signifying an ending with the promise of a new beginning.  HOWEVER! in the case of this trial I have charged this card with the death penalty.  The death penalty is being sought by the prosecution so it is not a stretch to add this to the meanings of some cards.  Just as the swords that continually show up clearly say to me the knife that was used to kill Travis, this card shows the very real possibility of the death penalty for JA.  It is in the further future position which means to me the death penalty is still on the table for her.

As I pull cards for this trial it is unbelievable how often the Death card comes up and the number of Swords that come up as well.

On to today's trial.  Wonder what the cards will have to say.....

Are you drawing cards for the JA trial?  Share your spreads, I'd love to see them.
