U-Predict – The Tarot Radio Experiment: The Arecibo Reply (Air date: 5/20/2014)

To celebrate the refurbishment of the Arecibo Radio Telescope, it broadcast a special signal into space on November 16, 1974. The transmission of 1’s and 0’s can be arranged into a diagram showing, among other things, a human stick figure, the solar system, the telescope itself and the DNA molecule. In August of 2001 a crop circle appeared close to the Chilbolton radio telescope in Hampshire, England. It was quickly named "The Arecibo reply", as it seemed to be exactly that; a reply to the Arecibo message, describing a different alien race.  Despite years of attempts of debunking, there is no firm evidence that it was a hoax.  

The Reading Room for this show included:  Jean Maurie Puhlman, TarotDactyl (Mary Brown), Camille Kea, Ivy Lieberman, and ReeNee Cummins.

First, when we talk about space and the idea of extraterrestrial contact on U-Predict, the Tarot has a unique way of acknowledging that the subject is definitely galactic – we get The Sun, The Moon, The Star and The World pulled in synchronicity.  Such was the case with this broadcast.  Despite little public interest in this case, Tarot tells us to reconsider what we have received.  Many people point out that 80% of crop circles are hoaxed, but in the book, “On the Edge of Reality” by Colin Andrews, Mr. Andrews tracks down and talks to human circle makers.  Many, describe seeing the circle they are about to make in a vision or dream or while meditating.  Many feel that they are contacted by the authentic circle makers and are instructed to make the design.  This adds a very interesting dimension to the whole dynamic of circle making. Are these folks experiencers of the 5th kind – those who are contacted telepathically by extraterrestrials? 

The Tarot pointed out that The Hierophant would be “heartbroken” (3 of Swords in synchronicity) to find that there is a whole other dimension to life that we seriously need to consider. 

To make this case even more fascinating, about a year later, in a nearby field, another crop formation appeared.  It resembled what most would consider a “Grey” alien, and it held something that turned out to be a disk of binary code. Using the ASCII characters to translate the digits the message decoded was "Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts & their BROKEN PROMISES. Much PAIN but still time. (Damaged word). There is GOOD out there. We OPpose DECEPTION. Conduit CLOSING (BELL SOUND)". (Formatting per the decoded message).

After discussing the second message, we pulled both the 2 of Wands and 3 of Pentacles in synchronicity.  Together, this could indicate a message sent; a very important message that could be classed as a formal diplomatic document.   In the same line of thinking, we pulled the 4 and 5 of Cups in synchronicity.  The four is telling us that our way of seeing the world is dissatisfying and the five is saying that our view is down-right disappointing.  We are told to watch for deception.  Could this refer to how alien races have shaped humanity? How we have developed our fierce ways?  Could this be “mom and dad” telling us to “cut it out?” Oh, we also pulled the Queen of Cups at this time.  In the past, this has always been another signal that something out there loves us and wants to best for us.

Ivy Lieberman and TarotDactyl had interesting points on this second message.  Ivy wondered if this was a renegade trying to warn us.  TarotDactyl said “I don't think the Emperor wants us to have the magic - governments would try to keep us separated from alien help...”  This is a common belief among many people that this is exactly what is happening.  It would also explain why these incidents have gotten so little press and have been dismissed when brought up for discussion. 

Jean Maurie pulled angel cards for this reading.  The 6 of Raphael told us to “reach out and make new friends.”  The 5 of Gabriel tells us that we have a challenge to resolve, but to avoid drama in doing so.  And then we got “2 of Gabriel - make bold and ambitious choices!  Great progress is possible.  Important relationships with people who share your vision.  This is a good message.”  Doesn’t the angel message sound similar to the alien message?  U-Predict!

U-Predict - The Tarot Talks about Archeology and the Bible (air dates – April 22 and April 29)

I know this is dangerous ground; to many people the idea of mixing the tarot and anything to do with the Bible is blaspheme.  But since the early beginnings of U-Predict, we have been using the synchronistic archetypes that readily appear when tarot readers read simultaneously to look at the archeological mysteries that cover our planet.  To move to the archeological mysteries surrounding the Bible, one of the most mysterious books on the planet (who actually wrote it, when was it written, and what was left out) was just a natural follow-on to previous experiments.  And the news cycle was ripe; first we had the U-Predict broadcast on April 22nd to determine if a small scrap of papyrus had been discovered that strengthened the argument that Jesus had a wife. A few days following that show, a U-Predict regular, Mary Brown sent me some interesting articles that talked about how little archeological evidence there was that there had been an exodus out of Egypt by hundreds of thousands of Hebrews.  I put the blogs together because they are two different sides of the same coin; a relic that sheds doubt on a New Testament  story that is told and the lack of relics that puts doubt on an Old Testament story that is told.  What is most amazing is what happened when Jean Maurie Puhlman added Angel Tarot card to the mix.  The angels gave us the best advice about the entire book itself.

The Reading Room for the April 22 show included: The Reading Room included:  Ivy Lieberman, Jean Maurie Puhlman, Ivy Liberman, Mary Brown (Tarotdactyl), Becky Greywolf, Anita Perez, Patti Phare-Camp, Camille Kea, and ReeNee Cummins.

The object read for was

On September 18, 2012, HDS Professor Karen L. King announced the existence of a papyrus fragment dubbed “The Gospel of Jesus’s Wife” at the International Coptic Congress in Rome.” (Harvard Divinity School,, April 10, 2014).

The cards immediately began discussing how upsetting this idea is to the status quo.  ReeNee Cummins talked about how that some of the other professors at Harvard Divinity School and elsewhere did not see the idea of “wife” in a modern context; that these women were seen as other servants of God, and would not have conjugal duties.  Ivy Lieberman brought up the idea that everyone seemed stuck on Mary Magdalene as his wife, when it could have been another woman.  The cards demonstrated just as much disruption would be caused if early Christians had powerful women disciples who preached the same as the men. 

Of course, The Hierophant was the most visible of all the cards.   This is the card that represents tradition, and/or a large contingency of people and institutions that want to keep it that way. The 6 of Cups, which speaks of preserving things and nostalgia also figured prominently. What we surprising was the fact that the Death card also showed up in synchronicity.  To most in the Reading Room, this spoke of the transformation that would happen if women we given their real place in the history that is described in all of holy books written at this time.  Tarotdactly talked about the Shekinah, a word that “just popped into her head.  ReeNee defined it as the “feminine face of God” that seemed to be lacking in this discussion – and all discussions like it.
The rest of the Minor Arcana were cards of arguing and dissension.  We had 5’s of Wands and Swords; we also had the 8 of Swords, a card that talks about being bound up in thinking a certain way.  In fact, the 8 of Cups figured prominently in BOTH readings, telling us to get past these points and move on.

Jean Maurie’s Angel card chastised us for losing the real message – that of loving our neighbor and having compassion for all living things.  This is not the first time that we have gotten this message when we have spoken about Jesus.  It may be the tarot, but it is much more spot-on than many modern clergy; it was his message and the application of the message that was most important.

And so we moved on to the show on The Exodus from Egypt on the 29thThe Reading Room for the April 22 show included: The Reading Room included:  Ivy Lieberman, Jean Maurie Puhlman, Ivy Liberman, Mary Brown (Tarotdactyl), Anita Perez, Patti Phare-Camp, Camille Kea, and ReeNee Cummins.

One of the best articles on the entire topic was:

One of the most telling statements from this article/Nova broadcast is the following:
“Is there mention of the Israelites anywhere in ancient Egyptian records?
No Egyptian text mentions the Israelites except the famous inscription of Merneptah dated to about 1206 B.C.E. But those Israelites were in Canaan; they are not in Egypt, and nothing is said about them escaping from Egypt.”

Other research turned up similar comments about lack of evidence. 

However,  an ardent group of religious Bible scholars claim that if you move the Exodus story back further in history, there is a period where it matches:

“…much less attention has centered on the timing of the mid-18th-Dynasty abandonment of Avaris (biblical Rameses) that occurred “after Amenhotep II”, and was followed by an inexplicable occupational gap. Did the abandonment occur during the reign of Amenhotep II, at the end of his reign, or during the reign of Thutmose IV?” (

So we began by asking if there was a recording mistake, and the actual events happened further back in history.  Anita Perez reminded everyone that if we followed the matrilineal lines, we may have a more accurate picture of history.

ReeNee asked if it mattered; she asked if we could just accept these Bible as a book that was about faith, hope and a better tomorrow.  That when (again) Jean Maurie’s Angel cards opened up.  The Archangel Chamuel old us “There is a better way!  Pause for reflection and insight.  Dare to be Different.  Gabriel told us to “Release ourselves from burdensome situations.”  Gabriel also told us that “We were working too many hours, trying too hard to please others.”

The only Major Arcana card we got was the Fool, the card of having faith and stepping off into the future unafraid.  Again, are we too busy trying to prove or disprove the book to miss the message?  The Minor included the Knight of Swords (have both sides rushed in fervently trying to prove something instead of talking about the miracles that faith can bring about).  If all the religious books were seen in that light would the world be a better place?  U-Predict...
