On This Day
Divorce was common in ancient Rome, especially among the upper classes. A couple could divorce just by declaring their intention not to live together in front of seven witnesses.
Today is Armistice Day, celebrating the end of World War 1. The official end of hostilities occurred at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of November 1918. Usually this moment is marked by two minutes of silence.
Summation of Spread
The Four of Cups card represents a person closed off to love due to a soured relationship. The mysterious hand emerging out of the cloud reminds us that gifts of love (symbolized by the cup) are always there—one only needs to see, then accept.
History repeats bloody conflicts ad infinitum. With lives on the line, it is best to put down your weapons and seek peaceful resolutions requiring no one’s death. This spread uses today’s ceasefire date as inspiration for the Divorce Spread. It is crafted to help a person through one of the toughest of life’s events.
