Interpretation of the card:
Astrological Sign: Gemini/Virgo ︱ Planet: Mercury/Mercury
An elderly man sits in his study, engaged in a game of chess with himself. He meticulously plans each move and his life follows a similar pattern - orderly and controlled. Under his desk are toys that symbolize his emotions and subconscious, waiting to influence the conscious decisions he makes in the game of life. The man may believe he has everything under control, but these underlying forces are always present and ready to shape the outcome.
The meaning of the Strategist Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card︱ The problem
WHAT IS THE SUBJECT?
You are currently living your life in dry dock. You have caught a virus called "reason" or "rationality." You only know the water of feelings from books and try to use only your head to understand your world. This will go on for a while, but during that time, you will not truly be living. You have become desiccated like a mummy, and every word you utter sounds somehow stale and lacking in vitality.
2) As the next card︱Way through the problem
HOW TO DEAL WITH IT?
Act wisely and only proceed once you've thoroughly considered the situation! Plan your steps carefully, and don't let your emotions control you. Give yourself time to reflect and observe your surroundings. Remember that every action you take will have consequences tomorrow, and that cause and effect are inextricably linked, so try to anticipate the outcome in advance.
3) as the last card︱Result
WHERE DOES IT LEAD?
Many things will be cleared up and resolved. It is crucial to gain a deeper understanding of the flow of your life. You will comprehend the connection between cause and effect, and be able to predict which causes lead to specific outcomes, so you can adjust accordingly.
