1988 Economist Cover foretelling BitCoin
The Economist is an English weekly magazine in continuous publication since its founding, by James Wilson, in September 1843. It is 50% owned by the English Branch of the Rothchild Family descended from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, who established his banking and Illuminati business in the 1760s
The Economist targets highly educated, cultured readers and claims an audience containing many influential executives and policy-makers. The publication's CEO described this recent global change, which was first noticed in the 1990s and accelerated in the beginning of the 21st century, as a "new age of Mass Intelligence," occult lingo for the New World Order.
Sometime, in the late 80's the Rothchild's shelled out a significant sum to hire their very own Nostradamus to presage the illuminati's plan for our future.
The Economist 2015 colors the players and significant others, while graying out the has-beens. The Pied Piper on the left and little light blue knit capped guy are open to interpretation. Smiling, Xi Jinping, and Chinese character headline strikes the main theme. The only hint of the coming global economic bust-up is Ben Bernanke's helicopter fritting in front of Putin.
2016 Looked like Nostradamus wasn't sure what the Illuminati wanted. Hillary faded to gray behind out front Merkel. Obama is fading away, Yellen appears for the first time, Xi and Putin have their faces colorized, China's Pagoda looms over the crowd but no sign of Trump.
Obviously, the 2017 Cover suggested that not even the Rothchilds, or their high SDR Notradamus, had a clue, so they had to bring out the Tarot Cards. Not being a Tarot man myself - in fact my son, 9 or ten at the time, corrected my pronunciation, "teg it's tear-O, not tear-ut (rhymes with carrot) - I had to have Wikipedia help me decipher the above 2017 Cover cards.
This card follows immediately after The Devil in all Tarots that contain it, and is associated with sudden, disruptive, revelation, and potentially destructive change. Some early, painted decks, such as the Visconti-Sforza tarot, do not contain it, and some Tarot variants used for game playing omit it.
The scene is modeled after the Christian Resurrection before the Last Judgment. An angel, possibly ￼￼Metatron, is depicted blowing a great trumpet, from which hangs a white flag bearing a red cross. A group of humans (man, woman, and child) of grayish complexion stand, arms spread, looking up at the angel in awe. The Sleeping Dead are apparently emerging from crypts or graves. There are huge mountains or tidal waves in the background. These may be a reference to the sea giving up its dead on the day of judgment, as described in the Book of Revelation
A naked woman hovers or dances above the Earth holding a staff in each hand, surrounded by a green wreath, being watched by various creatures. In older decks, these are usually a tetramorph, a human face or head, a lion, an ox, and an eagle, the symbols of the four Evangelists. The four figures in the corners of the card are also referenced in the Book of Revelation, 4:7, where the throne of God is described: "And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle."
Later decks avoid such overt Christian symbolism, or ignore it altogether, choosing to explain these observers as representatives of the natural world, or the kingdom of beasts. According to astrological tradition, the Lion is Leo, a fire sign; the Bull or calf is Taurus, an earth sign; the Man is Aquarius, an air sign; and the Eagle is Scorpio, a water sign. These signs also represent the classical four elements.
The Waite version of the card shows an old man carrying a staff in one hand and a lit lantern containing a six-pointed star in the other. In the background is a wasteland. Just beyond the wasteland is a mountain range.
His lantern is the Lamp of Truth, used to guide the unknowing. He holds a patriarch's staff to help him navigate narrow paths as he seeks enlightenment. His cloak is a form of discretion.
According to Eden Gray and other authors on the subject, it is unlikely that this card actually represents a physical death. Typically it implies an end, possibly of a relationship or interest, and therefore implies an increased sense of self-awareness—not to be confused with self-consciousness or any kind of self-diminishment.
In fact, Eden Gray interprets this card as a change of thinking from an old way into a new way. The horse Death is riding is stepping over a prone king, which symbolizes how not even royalty can stop change.
When the Magician appears in a spread, it points to the talents, capabilities and resources at the querent's disposal. Depending on the card's placement in relation to other cards, the message is to tap into one's full potential rather than holding back, especially when there is a need to transform something. There are choices and directions to take. Guidance can arrive through one's own intuition or in the form of someone who brings about change or transformation.
According to Arthur Edward Waite, this card signifies the divine motive in man. It is also the unity of the individual being on all planes, and in a very high sense it is thought. With further reference to the "sign of life", i.e. the infinity symbol and its connection with the number 8, it may be remembered that Christian Gnosticism speaks of rebirth in Christ as a change "unto the Ogdoad." The mystic number is termed Jerusalem above, the Land flowing with Milk and Honey, the Holy Spirit and the Land of the Lord. According to Martinism, 8 is the number of Christ. WOW! They got that one right. Now we know why Trump moved the embassy to Jerusalem.
A common aspect to most interpretations of this card within a reading is to introduce an element of change in the querent's life, such change being in station, position or fortune: such as the rich becoming poor, or the poor becoming rich.
At the top of the wheel perches the sphinx, who is there to remind us that if we stay stable amidst turmoil and use reasoning then we can retain the power to change our own lives instead of staying at the mercy of chance.
This is a time of hope and recovery, after the chaos and pain caused by The Tower. The influence of the Star is one of optimism and peace, healing after a physical illness, or the end of a period of depression, and having little faith in one’s abilities. This is a time of grace, and of cleansing the body and spirit. Whatever was damaged from the Devil and the Tower will be renewed now, and there is a relieved feeling of openness, trust, love, psychic ability, and a return of Spirituality.
There you have it, the Rothchild's and their Illuminati Nostradamus, were full of good intentions in their 2017 Tarot Reading. "Wait Wait, Don't Tell Me," What does the 2018 Economist Cover look like?
It's here, everybody stand up and cheer.
