While a guest on Joe Rogan’s podcast, celebrity Mike Tyson said that he believed the rich hunt the homeless for sport. While not an outlandish claim for more unstable countries or a particularly psychopathic person, the idea of it being systematic in the developed world seemed outlandish to me.
So I decided to find out for sure with a tarot reading. Remember this tarot reading is alleged and for entertainment purposes only.
Here I’ll be using the Golden Art Nouveau Tarot deck (this is an affiliate link that helps support me if you make a purchase).
Now let’s find out if Tyson is on to something.
A Bad Deal
I’m going to be honest with you – I laughed as I shuffled the deck thinking there was nothing here. But as I laid down each card, I felt very uncomfortable with what the spread revealed.
The first card here is The Devil. I sense that there’s indeed some sort of group that hunts the homeless among the elites. I don’t sense from the spread that this is a widespread practice, but rather an insular initiation rite.
The Devil card can be interpreted here quite literally as a “deal with the devil,” but the rest of the spread lacks occultic elements. Instead, it may reflect that this group offers something in exchange for a mysterious initiation. And, like Satan himself, those who take up the offer may not realize the temptation has grave consequences.
The second card here is the Ace of Wands, Reversed. I’m interpreting this as both the lifeforce of the homeless victims who are extinguished and those who are tempted by this immoral group only to discover the truth.
For most, they’re probably disturbed by the offer and outright refuse it. This will ruin their careers and probably cause them to become a target of the group later. After all, anyone who knows the truth and isn’t able to be blackmailed because they refused it is a threat.
But for those who do take the offer and go through with the deed, they likely find that the power and privilege this group offers comes with even more strings. It doesn’t end with the initiation rite, and the group’s actions become increasingly severe and morally corrupt.
The third card is the Four of Cups, Reversed. I don’t think once you’ve been offered to take part in the game, you can actually refuse. This card speaks about finally coming to a difficult decision.
This group likely stalks and harasses potential members until they give in. If they refuse, they’re probably “dealt” with. But those who give in, and I think it’s probably a minority of those targeted for initiation, leap into action.
What the group promises is so enticing that they’ll justify their actions. After all, no decent person can kill another and reconcile that to be okay, but they’ll do it because the homeless are “worthless” or some other nonsense.
A Secret Order
The fourth card here is the Five of Cups. I had some trouble interpreting this card at first even though it’s the card I started with when I began tarot. But I think I see it this way: those who are initiated into the group don’t look back at the things they’ve done with any regret. Instead, they’re proud.
They look forward to the “mess” of homelessness in front of them and plan to clean it up. And I think this is how this group can persist. They brainwash their members into believing what they’re doing is good.
You wouldn’t be able to identify these people among the wealthy. After all, not all of the rich have a public profile anyway. But regardless, this aura of “doing good” makes the members of this group invisible among other philanthropists. Family, friends, and the public would have no idea what is going on.
Benefitting from Evil
The last card in the spread is the Eight of Pentacles. The group is very close-knit, even among the wealthy. It’s probably less than a dozen people. They have a secret that can ruin them if it’s ever discovered. But of course, so few people care about the homeless that they’re able to get away with “disposing” of what they deem to be trash.
This group uses their blood bond to unite their business interests. As allies, they help and promote each other to succeed, perhaps even breaking other laws or acting unethically to promote their fellow members in their respective industries. Inside trading is almost certainly done.
Overall, this causes the members of this small group to become wealthier and more influential in the long term at the expense of outright murder.
For me, this was an unexpected reading and I’m very uncomfortable with the answer. But that’s tarot for you – sometimes, the answer you get isn’t the one you wanted.
