It Deals with This
This sign indicates a great disturbance, and that happiness will be destroyed. There is most likely an enemy, perhaps even a lawsuit. Black magic may have been performed against you. You are being harmed by reciprocal fighting, gossip, or by having gone to a place of much quarreling. Nothing you do will produce successful results unless you intend to do harm. Now is the time to confront your enemies and settle differences. You should try to find a positive way to vent negative emotions, such as taking action against a perceived injustice. Rituals of making yellow clay stupas representative of deities, saints, or sacred happenings would be beneficial.
Do NOT Do 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.
What you have asked will be settled like the clarity of daylight. Things will work out well. However, things do not work out so well in questions regarding earth, houses, and objects used as supports such as tables or stages.
It Leads to This
A new life's path is unfolding before you. Opportunities abound. You will do well if you have the courage to move down this new path, as long as you do not stray from acting morally.
