It Deals with This
The Double Blank is perhaps the grandest of dominoes. This domino often symbolizes a major change. It is the domino of fate, destiny, providence, and karma. Several new paths will open for you, and you are spiritually and intellectually ready to take them on. However, if this domino is drawn in a single-domino reading, it simply means to ask the question again at a later time.
Do NOT Do This
The time is at hand to pursue new ventures. Your wishes will be accomplished, exceeding all expectations. The study of logic will bear tremendous fruit, as would diligent meditation upon your special deity or spirit guide. Partnerships are extremely well-favored. Opportunities may seem too good to be true, but hear them out fully before ruling anything out.
Spontaneous strength arises from within, like wind fueling the fire. Dreams and fantasies lead you to your correct path. Activities of power and destruction have great potential when used in accordance with a higher power. More offerings should be made to your spiritual protectors. Results will be good for what you wish to achieve, though works involving water will only be mediocre.
It Leads to This
Steady work will accomplish much, especially if performed quickly. It is difficult to predict beyond this, except that air activities such as sending letters or news are not favored. Fiery activities are preferred.
