Loteria of the Day 07 05 2022
El Paraguas “The Umbrella”
When we see the umbrella card in this way, Loteria wants to remind us that the storm is coming. Storms are part of life. If we are prepared for the storm, then we can seek shelter and minimize the damage coming towards us. This card also speaks of being divinely protected from chaos because you are working on an important cause. If you are staying out of the drama associated with people and minding your own business, this will be a huge help in reducing any pushback from the universe.
Remember that storms aren’t just destructive. They are necessary to bring life-giving rain to your crops. Whatever you’re working on, try not to see this situation as harmful. See it as a necessary step towards the next level of your growth.
What are Mexican Loteria cards?
Originally, Mexican Loteria cards were used in a bingo-like game. They were not used as a divination tool until recently when the main supplier, Don Clemente, made the cards more uniform. The deck, consisting of 54 cards generally depicts art and symbolism present in Mexican culture. These cards are usually aimed at children or for general entertainment, but modern divination researchers, such as Garth Tardy, contributed to their development. Most of my information comes from this website:
I use the Loteria cards as a way of understanding how I can face hurdles in my life. I feel that they compliment the tarot, oracle, and affirmation decks well because they provide a different perspective on the theme of the day.
