What does the 2018 F1 Season hold for…?
Looking through this reading, a lot of cards jumped out while being shuffled and a lot are reversed, I think a lot of things will be shaken up this year and a lot of things that should have stayed hidden will be known.
Page of Pentacles (Jumped out when shuffling)
Now is the time to be cautious, you are practical, dependable and willing to work hard to gain new skills. This will serve you well this year as you find new ways to get the most out of your car this year, you must learn from last year’s mistakes.
I’m not sure about this, he did work steadily and gained new skills but he certainly didn’t learn from last year’s mistakes. I’d call this 50/50
Page of Swords R (Jumped out when Shuffling)
When upright this card represents a person who is curious and thoughtful someone who is willing to take risks and speak up. When reversed I feel this is someone who is going to become stale, take things easy and complain a lot about not getting what he’s due, in other words he’s not going to even try.
Again, not so sure about this, apart from the flash of brilliance in Austin it was another year of the same old Kimi, just driving to get paid. I think this is more of a yes than a no
Queen of Cups
Pay attention to your intuitions and feelings, listen to what others are saying around you and learn from them. Listen to your heart as well as your dreams, your intuition will serve you well if you listen to it
Well this is a big fat bust, if he’d listened to his intuitions he’d have found himself a new seat when the rumours about Lawrence Stroll buying the team surfaced, even he must have known Lance would take his seat.
King of Wands (Jumped out when shuffling)
This King is full of pizzazz, charisma and Joie de Vie. He’s a great leader, charming, passionate and proud. This are great characteristics for a man who is a leader, show them if you want to show your team mate who is boss, if you strut your stuff, you will be the boss.
I think this is more bust than win, yes he showed flashes of the King of Swords but he also let his team mate walk all over him (or crash, depending on your view)
8 of Swords
The picture on the card shows a bound and blindfolded woman surrounded by a fence of Swords. She thinks she is a prisoner and cannot escape so she doesn’t want to bother. The thing is she CAN escape, if she wants to and I think this is your problem. You are so busy blaming the car, the team, other drivers, tyres and tracks for your problems you are not seeing what you need to do to actually overcome the problem and escape the never ending cycle of complaints. Open your eyes and your mind and tell yourself you can overcome this.
I’d call this a win, Romain did well this year, more often than not in the top 10 and a lot of Q3 appearances, so he did overcome the bindings of poor workman blaming his tools like last year, but then the car was a lot better. He did well to break free of his reputation for being the Victor Meldrew of F1.
The Fool R (Jumped out when shuffling)
In an upright position the Fool stands for taking a leap of faith and starting a journey to find your dreams, reversed I think you’re sticking with the Status Quo. Last year you got yourself a reputation for being a reckless gobshite, this season you should be thinking of getting rid of that reputation and trying something new, but I don’t think you can be bothered. The Bad Boy of F1 image of last year got you headlines, albeit the wrong kind and you want to stay with it.
Again, I think this is more of a win than a bust, he certainly showed flashes of brilliance and kept his opinions to himself when it mattered, there was the occasional slip up but nothing like last year
Knight of Swords
You are a sharp minded, idealistic and a great problem solver, but you have a tendency to be a little reckless and think his opinion is the only one that matters. These tendencies can serve you well this year but you need to separate the good from the bad.
Bust, Bust, Bust, if he’d followed this advice he’d still have a drive, wouldn’t have been beaten so soundly by Alonso and spent most of his time welded to the back of the grid.
4 of Swords
This card means taking some R&R to decide what you are going to do next, it’s well known you’re going to compete in the WEC alongside F1 but you need to spend what off time you have resting so you can weigh up your options about what you want to do next.
I’d call this a win, he decided to call it a day in F1 (for now) and concentrate on the Triple Crown.
Knight of Wands
This Knight is an adventurous, fun loving, risk taker. A charismatic, confident person but with a short attention span which means he starts a lot of things, loses interest and then doesn’t bother finishing, he values adventure over common sense and needs a lot of stimulation to keep his mind on what he’s doing. This could be your undoing this year, you need to focus or you will be under threat from unexpected sources.
This is a win; I didn’t really need cards or a crystal ball to see this happening.
2 of Wands
You have the power to choose for yourself what you do next with your life, you have a lot of creativity in you and now you must choose what you are going to do with it, do you go all out for yourself or support your team mate. It’s also a chance to look back at what you have achieved so far and choose if you want to stay on this path or take a new one.
I guess this came true towards the end of the season, but I don’t think he chose what he was going to do, it was chosen for him, by the team. NOW he must decide what path he needs to take before it’s decided for him, again.
The Hanged Man R (jumped out when shuffling)
When upright this Major Arcana card shows surrender, sacrifice and waiting. Reversed this is saying you want none of that, you’re fed up with waiting and surrendering wins, positions and points, now you want to go out and get what is owed to you. This is saying, stop waiting and start doing.
This is a definite win, Dan go so fed up with Max and the team walking all over him, the car denying him wins, so he went to Renault to get a better deal.
10 of Cups
This is a card of Happy Ever After. You are feeling at home and that the team is your family, but don’t get lulled into a false sense of security, not everything has a fairytale ending.
This is a win also, I think, now that Dan is out of the way, the team is really his now, but he has to remember what happened to Seb when he got a young, ambitious team mate
This Major Arcana card signifies taking a leap of faith to start a new journey. I wouldn’t say having a new team and a new team mate is a new journey for you, but you have always been ‘Better’ than your team mate. Now that Carlos his your team mate and equal to you in talent, you will have to up the ante and perhaps take that leap of faith and do something unusual to put your mark on the championship.
Not sure about this, this could be more relevant to next year when the universally liked Dan joins the team. Two of the nicest guys in F1 in a team, could be interesting.
7 of Swords R (jumped out when shuffling)
Upright this card is about manipulation, deception and theft. Reversed, I think this is saying all the dirty tricks mishaps and manipulation you feel you have suffered at the hands of previous teams and team mates will come to an end. This year will see you feeling that you are being treated fairly and feeling that now you are actually able to do your best and having it count for something.
I’d count this as a win, although not having his contract renewed was a bit like the upright card.
2 of Swords
This card is saying that you feel trapped, you’re only in the team because you bring in money, Pascal was the better driver, you haven’t scored a point for years. You need to break out of this feeling, it’s not a permanent state of affairs you have it within your heart and mind to break out and show what you’re made of.
This is also a win, Marcus showed that he was capable of being a good driver and scoring points, unfortunately this didn’t stop him losing his seat.
Justice (Jumped out when shuffling)
This is a Major Arcana card, which means you need to take its message seriously. This card means exactly what it says on the tin, justice. Actions will have fair consequences, everything will fall into place and things will balance out. All in all, I think this means the faith Ferrari and Sauber have placed in your talent will be repaid. Cause and Effect is also part of the energy of this card, you actions will have far reaching effects, so make sure they are good.
WIN, WIN, WIN, Charles is destined for big things and he showed it this year, Rookie of the year, Kimi’s seat in Ferrari 75% of Sauber’s points. This is a huge win for Charles
King of Wands
This King is adventurous, charismatic and passionate. He’s full of pizzazz and verve; he knows what he wants and how to get it. I think this will sum up your season nicely, you know what you want and how to get it.
I think this is a win too; he got the best of his team mate, scored a lot of points and got himself the Red Bull drive.
3 of Pentacles
This card is all about teamwork, each person knowing what skills they need to bring to the project. This is what you need to work towards this year, knowing the right skills to bring to the team. You time in WEC will help tremendously, perhaps shaking the F1 mindset of the team to look elsewhere for that certain something to beat the others.
I wouldn’t call this a win; he never really fitted in and worked well in F1.
7 of Swords
Beware of deceit, theft and manipulation this season. You may feel that things aren’t what they seen with you ‘Misfortunes’ this year.
Not sure what to make of this, I think because the car was not the best and he’s the son of a rich man gifted the seat may have overshadowed some genuine talent somewhere.
6 of Wands
This is a card of triumph, self confidence and praise. I think you will probably come out top in the battle with your team mate but beware you don’t become conceited; it’s a long fall from that high horse.
Apart from ‘Winning’ Sky’s Driver of the Year vote, Sergey’s been pretty invisible for most of the year, so more bust than win.
