U-Predict Blog – The Georgia Guidestones (Air date: 02/04/2014)

Blogger’s notes:  For the 5th show in a row, we pulled every Sword in the suit.  Because this synchronicity has spilled over from our conspiracy series to another topic, I wanted to dig deeper in to what this could mean.  Research came up with the idea that there are a lot of “head games” going on when Swords rule; I also have a friend with a master’s degree in Jungian Studies.  Her interpretation was that it is about discernment – telling truth from lies.  That definitely summed up the information we got on the previous shows.  Learn how to research the truth instead of believing everything you are told or read.  Learning to do this is a vital step for our growth personally as well as for humanity in general. 

I will say that I placed the investigation into the Georgia Guidestones at the end of the conspiracy series because it itself is the centerpiece of many conspiracy theories involving a secret society wanting to take over the planet and destroy most of those living on it.  There are also statements on the Guidestones themselves that people construe to be describing a single government for the entire planet.  These concepts both play into the conspiracy cornerstone of “population control”.  Since this is an actual physical location and object, I thought it would be interesting to see if the cards continued to interpret in the same manner the hype over the Guidestone conspiracies as Tarot had on the four cornerstones themselves; Tarot did not disappoint, or change its point of view.

For anyone not aware of this controversial monument, it is located in North Georgia in an area known for its production of granite for monuments and statuary.  It was funded by a man named R. C. Christian who freely admitted that “R. C. Christian” was not his actual name.  Only the banker who handled the funds knows who Mr. Christian actually was – and he has sworn to take that secret to his grave.  The site uses archeoastronomy to track the sun through the year.  On the monument in 8 languages are the following instructions for mankind:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite.
10. Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature - Leave room for nature.

The monument was erected in 1980, at the height of the Cold War.  Most historians say that the time of its construction holds the key to its purpose; if mankind destroyed itself in another atomic war, the Guidestones could be used as a social map to guide the few remaining humans in a new direction.  Conspiracy theorists disagree.  They claim that the Guidestones put on display the evil plans for world domination by a group like the Illuminati. 

The Reading Room for this broadcast included:  Koneta Bailey, Ivy Lieberman, Jean Maurie Puhlman, Patti Phare-Camp, Camille Kea, and ReeNee Cummins. 

We started by asking what the cards could tell us about R. C. Christian.  We ask if he was associated with anything evil.  The cards told us he was an advanced teacher.  We asked if Mr. Christian was with the Illuminati.  The cards told us he was an advanced teacher.   For both these questions, the Emperor was pulled in Synchronicity, all being upright cards.  This would indicate a ruler who wanted fairness and equality for all his subjects.   Research also revealed that Mr. Christian was fascinated by Thomas Pane, the Founding Father who wrote “Common Sense,” a pamphlet that questioned England’s right to rule the colonies. “Common Sense” is considered a key piece of literature that lead to the Revolutionary War.  Thomas Paine himself believed in a utopic society that would work out its disputes instead of resulting in war.  The cards agreed that this is how Mr. Christian saw himself and his work, to guide a new civilization to another way of life that would be free of the violence that plagues our current society. 

We also pulled The Fool and The Magician in synchronicity.  These cards speak about having faith in an unknown future, and that each of us has the power to shape this future.  This is a major theme that has been repeated all throughout this experiment; Tarot wants us to know that the future is up to each of us individually.  We need to learn to take our power and act for the good.

In addition to pulling all the Swords in the deck, we pulled the Ace of Swords and the Page of Swords in synchronicity.  The Ace was pulled 8 times; the interpretation for this synchronicity is that these are new and different ideas that we need to contemplate, a different way to live.  The Page indicates that there is a lot of immaturity about dealing with these new ideas, hence the attractiveness for people who are conspiracy theorists.

We also pulled every Pentacle in the deck, but only had the 7 of Pentacles in synchronicity.  The 7 of Pentacles indicates the need for a lot of patience.  Any major changes in society are going to happen very slowly.  It also indicates the involvement in material wealth.  It begs the question, what would happen to the industrial war machine if people chose not to fight but to sit and negotiate (a Guidestone guide point)?  What would happen if an organization like the United Nations had the power to settle disputes instead of just making suggestions (another Guidestone guide point)?  These ideas scare people.  When you add the loss of revenue of not needing large military operations, you can see how such different principles would take centuries to implement.

The final card pulled in synchronicity was the 3 of Cups.  Like our series on conspiracies, the end card discussed everyone being happy, everyone being treated fairly.  These also are key points that Tarot makes over and over again.    Would following the advice on the Georgia Guidestones lead to a happier society?  U-Predict…
