Collision of the Elements Spread
On This Day
The National Weather Service, a governmental agency, was originally placed under the Department of War when it was formed. Congress felt “military discipline would probably secure the greatest promptness, regularity, and accuracy in the required observations.”
The US Weather Service was established on this day in 1870, providing forecasts, warnings, safety, and general information for the public.
Summation of Spread
The World card represents the manifestation of the elements in your life. Note the creatures in each corner: lion (Fire), bull (Earth), eagle (Air), and cherub (Water). These elements are also representative of the four fixed signs of the zodiac: Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, and Scorpio. They point to the four seasons, the four compass points, and the four corners of the universe.
This tempestuous spread uses weather events to inform questions about the winds of change operating in your life.
