Tarot doesn't always work for me, but occasionally it has worked - and spookily so.
These are the three cards I drew, in this order, after asking my question, also added are a selection of interpretations from a good website, Learn Tarot. So...
Who will be our next president?
Response:7 Swords/Strength/7 Rods or Wands
7 Swords can mean things like
avoiding obligations/being afraid to face the music
taking the easy way out/hiding from the truth/ procrastinating
being a lone wolf/feeling you don't need anyone else/wanting independence
keeping something to yourself/staying aloof
choosing hidden dishonor/deceiving or being deceived/ covering your tracks/maneuvering behind the scenes/ being two-faced/seeing others take the rap/controlling without appearing to/avoiding a shameful secret/lying or stealing.
Hmm - does that describe Clinton or Trump? Fits either one! Next card:
STRENGTH (a Major Arcana card so most significant of all)
feeling an unshakable resolve/taking heart despite setbacks
having stamina/ being a rock
being patient/dealing calmly with frustration/maintaining composure
refusing to get angry/showing forbearance
being compassionate/giving others lots of space/tolerating/
understanding what others are feeling/forgiving imperfection/
achieving soft control/persuading/working with/guiding indirectly/being able to influence/
tempering force with benevolence/demonstrating the strength of love.
I'm not clear that that card describes either Clinton or Trump! Clinton fans, those well dosed with the kool-aid, will see her there, I think.
fighting/making your point forcefully/seizing the advantage
being defiant/holding out against pressure/opposing all challengers/combating criticism/refusing to yield/resisting authority/showing conviction/ having a fixed position/
demonstrating strong character/standing up for what you believe/knowing you are right/acting resolutely.
Well, this could relate to Clinton or Trump, according to one's preference, I guess.
All in all the 3 cards do present the current scenario, which is something! No clear prediction of the winning candidate. For a clear hint of a Clinton win I'd have expected a female-ish hint (a Queen, the Empress etc.) Maybe that'd be asking too much of my recently little-used deck. I guess the winner will be the candidate who is able to transform attributes of the first card, via attributes of Strength, into attributes of the last card. A hint, perhaps, that all is still in play.
