I asked the Universe to show me the energy surrounding Biden in his quest for the 2020 presidency. I started off with a full Celtic Cross spread.
Interestingly enough, the first card out was the King of Swords.
Because Trump is a Gemini and swords represent air signs, this is Donald showing up in the reading. The foundation of the spread was the Seven of Wands, which means Biden is really, really, really going to have to battle Trump.
The thing he can do is choose Hillary Clinton as his running mate. The reason I say this is because in the recent past slot of the reading, the Two of Cups appeared.
Not only does this indicate a perfect partnership, but cups represent water signs. Both Biden and Hillary are Scorpios, a water sign, and no other current female politician potentially being considered as Biden’s VP pick is a water sign.
Above the entire spread was The World, with the Ten of Cups the future card. These cards indicate that Biden can beat Trump, but his success hinges on who he chooses as VP.
The entire spread was crossed by the King of Pentacles, which I take to mean that people in power would approve of a Biden/Clinton match.
It also suggests people with money would also approve of the duo, which would be useful for a powerful campaign against Trump.
As I went up what is referred to as the tower of the Celtic Cross spread, the card representing how Biden feels about things was The Hanged Man. This is good because it means Biden is seriously examining every angle of his campaign strategies in an attempt to win this election. The fact that this is a Major Arcana card means he’s getting help from the Universe.
For universal energies, The Wheel of Fortune came up. This means that everything can change in a heartbeat and, considering this card was followed by Temperance, and both of these cards are also Major Arcana cards, the Universe is telling us and Biden to proceed with strength, but also alerting us that we’re going to have to play everything correctly in order to win – no mistakes are allowed.
The outcome of the tower of the spread was the Three of Cups, which indicates that, should Biden choose Hillary as his VP, and they won, the country would celebrate.
Next, I did a three-card spread to see how Biden would do with other female politicians as his VP, starting with Klobuchar. For Klobuchar, the Six of Cups, Eight of Pentacles, and The Lovers came up in her spread.
This shows that she and Biden would work well together, but I pulled a final card to see whether he could win with her and I got the Five of Swords, which is a hard no.
I suspect this is because Klobuchar doesn’t have Hillary’s chops and she’s more conservative. So, while she and Biden would get along well, they’re not a winning duo.
For Kamala, I pulled the Two of Swords, Seven of Cups, and Four of Pentacles, which is not a great reading.
I read this spread as Kamala being a potential lighting rod, the way Hillary was in 2016. However, I pulled a final card for Kamala asking about the possibility of Hillary choosing her for VP in 2024 should Biden stick to his plan to only serve one term. I got the Ten of Pentacles, which is a great card. The country would be absolutely ecstatic about this pairing.
For Stacey Abrams, I pulled the Queen of Pentacles, the Nine of Cups, and the Six of Swords.
This tells me that Biden and Stacey would get along well enough, but the Six of Swords can represent a passing of some kind. So, I pulled a card to see if Biden could win should he choose Abrams and I got the Eight of Wands. This tells me that Abrams, while brilliant, having never served on a federal level might be in over her head with what she might face as a potential VP.
Considering this is the first time I’ve thrown the cards for Trump this year and actually seen him get beaten, I pulled three cards to see what energy he has going into the general election. I got the Seven of Pentacles, The Hermit, and the Page of Wands.
This spread indicates that Trump is trying to figure out more ways to grift the country, and he’s becoming more solitary because people cannot stand to be around him. But, he will get good news that will help him feel strong and feel like he can win.
Will he win? I pulled The Moon, which indicates more Putin crap going on behind the scenes. Will it be enough? I pulled the Eight of Swords, which tells me Trump and Putin might be a little more trapped and face more obstacles in stealing this election versus 2016. Still, and I know I sound like a broken record but, Democrats will need to work much harder to get Trump out of office this year.
I pulled two more cards, one for Biden, one for Trump. For Biden, I got the Nine of Pentacles and for Trump I got the Queen of Swords.
Basically, this election is gonna be a battle royale. What I get from this is that horrible things will be said about Biden via Trump’s camp, which is no surprise; it’s already happening. So, I pulled another card asking, “What can give Biden the edge?” and I pulled The Empress.
This indicates that a very compassionate woman, a woman who knows what she’s doing can make the difference for Biden’s campaign. You know what I’m going say next – it’s gotta be Hillary! If Biden picks Hillary, the result for Trump is the Seven of Swords, which is the thief card – how appropriate! So, should Hillary be the VP pick, Trump will believe that he can pull the same stunts he did in 2016 and win.
However, I pulled a card asking for the final outcome, I laid it in Trump’s pile, and it’s Three of Swords, which indicates heartbreak. So, there is a chance for Biden to win, but I all of the readings I did point to his success hinging upon his pick of Hillary Clinton as VP.
Since I love Hillary, I pulled a card asking the Universe to show me if my personal bias towards her as a candidate were coloring my readings. I pulled the Seven of Wands, which indicates that the readings weren’t biased, and further suggests my fight to get the truth out, whatever that truth may be.
Going forward, energies could change and swing away from favoring Hillary as a VP pick. While I would be disappointed, I would accept what the Universe is trying to dictate to me through my tarot readings. It’ll be interesting to see how things progress over the coming months, especially as we all fight to survive a global pandemic. I’ll absolutely be doing more readings as we progress through this political, and now health nightmare. Here’s hoping there is so much light on the other side of it all.
