This Servant reminds us that world around you may not be at all what it seems.
When this card appears in a spread it is a warning to the Querent that everything is not as it seems. They are being fed a story that isn’t the full truth, or has been spun to make one side look more favorable than the other.
A story is being presented that is designed to create a certain reaction or response. This version of the truth may be to fool the Querent or it may be that someone is trying to spare their feelings. Either way, the truth is not being told. Things are probably not as they seem, there is a level of spin, lies, manipulation and fraud.
This card may also suggest that The Querent is being influenced by outside forces to think or believe a certain way, and it is up to the Querent to try to now ascertain the real truth of the situation. The world around them may not be at all what it seems. The Media calls for The Querent to make their own judgements about events and not rely so heavily on other people’s opinions and views.
May also suggest that someone is slandering or spreading gossip or lies about The Querent. Also very much a reminder that you shouldn’t believe everything you hear, read or see on the internet, newspapers, or on TV.
The Media servant is used to help see the truth of a situation, to distinguish the lies from the facts or to get a better feel or read of a situation or event.
The Media is also useful in propaganda and self-promotion, to gain publicity or in getting “the Word out”. The Media can help with getting a good image of you or your product presented to the world, in restoring the Operator’s good name after a period of it being tarnished or in making people see the operator in a good light.
In Curse work The Media is very useful in aiding to destroy the good name or public standing of an enemy.
