Today’s post is the fifth in a 10-part series involving serendipitous and mysterious events and occurrences involving the date of Nov. 14th (the same date my mother died). These posts will be categorized as events that happened before Nov. 14, the day of Nov. 14th, and after Nov. 14, 2013. Enjoy!
The fifth serendipitous occurrence to take place after Nov. 14th has a little history to it and again has to do with the Destiny Cards, an ancient astrological system hidden in the ordinary deck of playing cards. The Destiny Cards system is based off of a mathematical formula that determines the layout for the mundane spread for each year. No matter how many times you use this formula, there are three cards that always end up in the same position. They are the Eight of Clubs (that’s my card), the Jack of Hearts (that’s my mom’s card) and the King of Spades. Unlike the Eight of Clubs (8C) and Jack of Hearts (JH), there is only one day of the year that you can be born to have a King of Spades (KS) birth card and that is January 1st. I came to the conclusion that these three cards represent qualities to the ancient Egyptian motto, “to operate (KS) in truth (8C) in service (JH) to others.”
To make a long story short, I was at lunch with my friend in Peru explaining how my book Prayers of a Virgin: 52 Weeks of Poetic Inspiration and Personal Planetary Guidance with the Destiny Cards was motivated by my mother’s death, when she reminded me that in the Tibetian tradition, a deceased person’s spirit lingers in the spirit world for 49 days before it makes its transition to another realm or another reincarnation. From that conversation, I wondered what date 49 days from my mother’s death was. You guessed it! It was January 1st! What made this special was that for 2014, January 1st was a new moon and a new year! How does it get any stranger than that? Until next time!
